Publisher's summary Edit

Twenty-five years ago, with Richter's Syndrome running rampant throughout the galaxy, the brilliant biochemist Nyssa, formerly of Traken, bade a painful farewell to her young family... and set off into the space, in search of a cure for this deadly disease.

She never returned.

Now, her grown-up son continues her work on the penal colony of Valderon, still desperate to make the breakthrough that eluded his presumed-dead mother.

So when the TARDIS lands on Valderon, bringing the Doctor, Tegan, Turlough and Nyssa to its fortress prison, the scene is set for a painful reunion... but not only for Nyssa. The Doctor's past is about to catch up with him too...

References Edit

  • Nyssa's son is named after her fellow traveller Adric.
  • The Doctor's first TARDIS shows him his future incarnations and calls them the rhetorician, the schemer and the idealist.
  • The Doctor is able to speak directly to his Type 50 when it possesses Tegan and Turlough and later when it uses its chameleon circuit to take on the form of Mahandra.
