Plot[edit]

The Doctor, Erimem and Peri have gone their separate ways. The Doctor is wandering on a nameless paradise planet filled with murderous primates (but only at night) and carnivorous plants. Erimem is the Queen of a space colony empire, New Cairo, and is suffering a rebellion, while Peri's stepson and new husband are causing problems to her domestic bliss.
