The Doctor and Kadett follow the Cybermen's map to Centuria's arctic zone...
Summary[edit | edit source]
Wandering the arctic lands of Centuria in search of the Cybermen's base, the Doctor and Kadett are attacked by a rogue-half cybernised drone called Homaj. He backs down when he realises they are human.
Homaj can't face returning to the mines where the Cybermen are using drones to mine hargstones (precious jewels with many industrial uses). An attack by a native giant, purple Ice Snake is brought to an end by the Cybermen and their cyber-converted dogs. Homaj runs off into the frozen wasteland but the Doctor and Kadett are captured and taken to a huge mine below the ice.
Inside the mine, the Doctor creates a distraction while Kadett steals explosives. The distraction causes a Cyberman to split one of the cave walls, disturbing a nest of Ice Snakes, which attack them. Fleeing the mine, the Doctor and Kadett see the Cyber-ship has already departed with its cargo. Homaj is waiting for them. He tells them he intercepted a message saying that the cargo was going to Centuria Central. He takes the explosives from Kadett and heads back to the mine. In an act of self-sacrifice, he permanently seals the mine. The Doctor and Kadett leave in pursuit of the Cybership.
