Notes Edit

Continuity Edit

  • The Sixth Doctor ran into a similar plight of an elemental shortage causing his TARDIS to lose functionality. The energy stores of Zeiton-7 were depleted, forcing a landing on the nearby planet Varos to collect more, only to be caught in the turbulent dealings of the Varosian society.
