The Key to Time is almost complete. With only one piece still to find, the Doctor, Romana and K-9 arrive on Atrios, a planet in the middle of a terrible war with its twin world, Zeos. To restore the balance of the universe for the White Guardian, the Doctor must find the sixth segment before the planets destroy each other — but Zeos is deserted, so who is behind the war?
