First Doctor William Hartnell is caught in the battle between good and evil in this exclusive audio recording of a 'lost' television soundtrack, with linking narration by Peter Purves.

When the Tardis lands on an arid planet, it seems as though the whole place is desolate and lifeless. But then the Doctor, Steven, and Vicki discover two crashed spaceships: one contains the Drahvins, a race of stunning beauty; the other contains the hideous Rills. However, as the team soon finds out, appearances can be deceptive. It emerges that the beauty of the Drahvins hides a colony of mindless clones who are controlled by the cruel, powerful matriarch Maaga, whereas the ugly Rills are friendly and intelligent explorers.

The Rills tell the Doctor that the dried-up planet is about to die. Back in the control room of the TARDIS, he discovers they are right, but things are worse than they thought. There is only one day of life day to escape.

With the Drahvins' ship damaged beyond repair, can the Rills get off the planet before the evil Maaga hijacks their craft in her own effort to escape? Download and start listening now!

    " A quick, enjoyable read. Certainly a treat for fans of the First Doctor to get to experience in novelisation form one of the serials that seems forever lost in time. "

    " I probably only rate it this high because I've never seen the actual episodes. I thus hano preconceptions about the appearances of the Rill and the Chumblies. I did get a bit annoyed by the overly flowery descriptive passages by the end; do we need a full page telling us about a fireball? "

    " Eh. It's not a bad story, but the writing is pretty clunky in patches and the story seems overweighted with a simplistic moral: "Beautiful people can be evil, and ugly things can be good."

    Maybe it was better on television. "
