Programming the TARDIS to visit the attractive planet of Metebelis 3, The Doctor and Jo are disappointed to find they’ve arrived in a cargo ship bound for Singapore. Or so they think. In fact, they are trapped in a time-loop on the far away planet Inter Minor, where all the life-forms of the Galaxy miniaturised in the Scope – a peepshow for arch-showman Vorg. These lifeforms include the terrifying Drashigs – huge underwater dragons who add to the monumental problems The Doctor and Jo face in trying to escape this nightmare circus.
