Is the Doctor really losing his mind? After his fifth regeneration his behaviour certainly seems strange. He tries to strangle Peri, and then lands the TARDIS on the asteroid Titan 3 determined to pursue the quiet life of a hermit. But a mysterious giant dome on the horizon seems set to shatter his peace.

The Doctor is quickly drawn into a plot to conquer the universe by a race of giant gastropods. Their leader, Mestor, intends to cause an enormous explosion in order to spread his people’s eggs throughout the galaxy. But just exactly what is their connection to the kidnapping of the twins Romulus and Remus, famed for their mathematical genius?
