Following an emergency landing, the Tardis arrives on a remote world orbiting a peculiar star - a pulsar which exerts an enormous gravitational force, strong enough to warp time. On further exploration the Doctor and his friends, Jamie and Zoe, discover a human outpost on the planet surface, inhabited by scientists who are there to study an ancient city. The city is apparently abandoned, but the scientists are at a loss to explain what happened to its sophisticated alien architects.
The Doctor discovers that something dark, silent and deadly is also present on the world - and it is slowly closing in on the human intruders....

Frazer Hines channels Patrick Troughton
A good second Doctor adventure. One of the remarkable things about it is the way Hines is able to perfectly capture the tone and speech patterns of Patrick Troughton: I found it hard at times to believe I was listening to only one reader (with Evie Dawnay providing the voice of one of the female characters).
