"You see there, Doctor, humanity's future — stronger, hardier, braver."

Even the search for a square meal turns complicated for the TARDIS crew when they stumble into what seems to be a research establishment — and uncover a plot to change the face of humanity. Literally.

But far, far more is at stake than one planet; past and future collide, old scores are settled, and some familiar faces assemble as time grinds against itself.

Can anyone stop the Terrible Zodin?

This is the first round-robin story featuring the 1st Doctor, Susan, Ian and Barbara. The adventure takes place somewhere between The Reign of Terror and Planet of Giants.
