One of Terrance Dicks` more straightforward adaptation. Still an enjoyable story where we can meet the Doctor`s new (not yet) companion Nyssa and see the return of his arch nemesis..... ( )

On the peaceful world of Traken, even evil cannot survive long. The last dark power on the planet, Melkur, is slowly dying--but not slowly enough. It takes all the resources of the Doctor, Adric, and the aged Keeper of Traken to beat back Melkur's ambition. ( )

A pretty standard effort from Dicks, closing out his contribution to the Fourth Doctor era with an account of what was visible on the screen. ( )
