Jon Pertwee stars as the Doctor in this remastered soundtrack of the 1974 television adventure, with a Full-Cast, and linking narration by Elisabeth Sladen (Sarah Jane Smith).

The TARDIS brings the Doctor, along with his companion Sarah Jane, back to the planet Peladon, scene of the earlier adventure The Curse of Peladon. Time has passed, but trouble still lurks in the tunnels of the citadel - as do some very familiar enemies . . .

''You have blasphemed in the temple of Aggedor . . . Prepare for the pit!''

It is many years since the TARDIS last settled on the planet Peladon, and the Doctor is surprised to find a less than warm welcome when he takes Sarah Jane Smith for a visit. The spectre of the royal beast, Aggedor, is once more being blamed for sudden deaths, fueling great unrest among the planet's trisilicate miners.

The Doctor and Sarah meet an old friend, in the shape of Alpha Centauri, and are introduced to Queen Thalira, daughter of the old King Peladon. They soon discover that the dark forces at work are far more real than Aggedor's ghost. There is a plot afoot, and behind it lie some more familiar figures: the Ice Warriors!

With the Doctor's old foes now allied with a galactic power bloc, the odds seems stacked against Peladon and the Federation. As tension mounts and the death toll increases, on the courage and ingenuity of the Doctor, Sarah, and their friends can save the day.

Elisabeth Sladen, who plays Sarah Jane in the story, provides linking narration and, in a short bonus feature, recalls the making of the original production.

(Producer's note: The quality of the recorded reflects the age of the programs and archive nature of the source material. While every attempt has been made to clean up and remaster these recording using the latest technology, the sound quality may vary.)
