It’s the end of an era. We get a new Master, a new companion, and a newish companion. Alas, we lose one of the most beloved Doctors in the process.
The bells, the bells! Yep, that there cloister bell is ringing a good ‘un in the TARDIS; a minor catastrophe must be looming. The much abused chameleon circuits have succumbed to entropy and the Doc needs to take precise measurements of a real life police box to give to the humanoid calculators on Logopolis. A brief period of materialising on Earth manages to snag another stowaway in the form of Tegan, air stewardess extraordinaire-ily annoying.
Coincidentally and quite literally occupying the same space at the same time is The Master, however, who tags along in an attempt to not only exact revenge on our favourite Time Lord, but get up to some nefarious sh*t in the process. Meanwhile, an odd white chap keeps popping up in the background, inexplicably snagging yet another future companion, and freaking out Doc to no end. There’s no time for that, though, as The Master accidentally sets off a chain reaction that will erase the entire universe, and these two Time Lord foes must collaborate to save us all.
