Plot

Part 1

A TARDIS arrived on Gallifrey, flown by Coordinator Vansell who was claiming that the planet was in terrible danger. The Lord President discovered that the Coordinator was right after finding that their planet was under siege by an unknown species. In the Doctor's TARDIS, he wass having trouble. The ship was pulled towards a planet because of a gravitational pull. A Time Lord tried to communicate with the Doctor, but was unable to and the signal was cut off.

Exiting the TARDIS, the Doctor discovered a voice in the distance. A girl called Elenya was trapped in quick sand. The Doctor told her not to struggle as he hacked his way through the undergrowth using his trusted umbrella. A mysterious woman appears and laughs at the Doctor. Evading her comments the Doctor went in aid of the trapped girl. Using his umbrella he pulled the girl out of the bog and onto a safe patch of land.

Sancroff who was a prisoner of Ruthley inside her home, was waiting for her to return. When returning she told him that she hated her job, which is to keep him there. She reluctantly helped the man into his bed. Speaking through a communicator with guards who were hovering above the planet she lied about there being no visitors on the surface. The Doctor found that he'd locked out of his TARDIS. Elenya explained about her arrival. She was a geologist, and all of her crew had been killed. A ship suddenly came through the planet's atmosphere and crashed to the surface.

The Doctor and Elenya were walking across the surface to find civilisation. The Doctor searched the area and found a light through a window. Another ship came crashing down. One ship came towards them and they ran away. On the communicator, the assassins had arrived to kill Sancroff. Ships were arriving all around the Doctor and Elenya. They investigated the ship wreckage and found the remains of the crew. The Doctor deciphered that the creatures were actually being born. Ruthley asked for the Doctor and Elenya to be killed, but the assassins refused.

The Doctor and Elenya met up with the creatures. They began a mind scan, which was extremely painful. When they awoke, Sancroff was with them. He explained that the creatures were Drudgers. Elenya finally woke up and wondered who the man was. He introduced himself. Suddenly, another creature arrives and destroys the Drudgers. Ruthley explained that they had come to kill them all. She had done a deal with them. They were called assassins.

The Drudgers return fire, but nothing seemed to be working. The assassins were converging on the main building. The Doctor, Elenya and Sancroff entered Ruthley's room. The Doctor began to ask questions. They found a film of Ruthley speaking to the assassins. They didn't listen to her, and shot her because she was a witness. The Doctor tried to create a barrier, but the creatures found them though. They learnt that Sancroff was a war criminal, and was now sentenced to execution.
