Requiem for the Rocket Men was the third story in the fourth series of Fourth Doctor Adventures. It featured both the Master played by Geoffrey Beevers, who had previously appeared in Fourth Doctor Adventures, and the Rocket Men, in their first appearance outside of the Companion Chronicles.
Publisher's summary Edit
The Asteroid — notorious hideaway of the piratical Rocket Men. Hewn out of rock, surrounded by force-fields and hidden in the depths of the Fairhead Cluster, their base is undetectable, unescapable and impregnable.
What cunning scheme is the Doctor planning? How does it connect with Shandar's new robotic pet? And just what has happened to Leela? The Master will have to work the answers out if he wants to leave the asteroid... alive...
