The Doctor defeats the Master's plans to hold the Universe to ransom, but at a high cost to himself - plummeting from the Pharos Project radio telescope, the Doctor regenerates. The time travellers escape the Master's clutches, but the Doctor's regeneration is failing, and Adric goes missing in the depths of the Tardis. Only Nyssa and Tegan can save the day, steering the time-ship towards the city of Castrovalva, renowned for its healing powers. But evil lurks at the heart of this rural paradise...
