On a planet with a dysfunctional economy, Doc and Romana encounter Hagrids, a back-stabbing Golden Girl and a giant, vegetarian space phallus
When Romana II attaches a transceiver to the TARDIS console, it picks up a distress call and immediately takes her and The Fourth Doctor to the planet Chloris. There, Lady Adrasta rules with an iron fist, ironically, as she also holds a monopoly over the only iron mine on the planet, making metal the most valuable commodity there is.
Anyone who dares cross Adrasta is cast by her soldiers into a — let’s call it “a pit” — where resides a — let’s call it “a creature” — that seemingly consumes all life brought before it’s dubious countenance. Along for the ride is also a band of hirsute bandits that obviously plays a part in this serial. But who is the creature? What’s with the giant egg shell on the surface? And does Adrasta know more than she’s letting on? Stay tuned to find out!
