Publisher's summary Edit

The Doctor and his companions are trapped in an E-Space universe, struggling to find the co-ordinates which will break the deadlock and take them back to Normal Space.

When all else fails, the Doctor suggests programming the TARDIS on the toss of a coin. Before he realises what is happening, that is just what Adric has done ...

When the TARDIS arrives at its destination, according to the console read-outs the craft is nowhere – and nowhere is exactly what it looks like ...

Deviations from televised story Edit

  • Romana's farewell to the Doctor is handled differently, with more emotion and is less rushed than the televised version.
  • The fate of the rogue Gundan is revealed.
  • How the slavers spaceship ended up in the void is revealed.
  • K9's fate is presented as a tragedy.
  • The ending is different from the televisted story, with Romana wandering off long after the spaceship explodes and the Doctor realizing he can travel between universes with the mirrors.
