The Doctor (Tom Baker) and Sarah Jane (Elisabeth Sladen) answer an intergalactic distress call that brings them to Zeta Minor, a far-flung planet at the edge of the known universe. There, they discover an earlier Morestran geological expedition has fallen prey to an unseen killer. Now, only their leader, Professor Sorenson, remains. A military mission from Morestra has also arrived to investigate. The culprit is revealed to be a creature from a universe of antimatter, retaliating for the removal by Sorenson of some antimatter samples from around the pit that acts as an interface between the two universes……. Will anyone be allowed to leave the planet alive?
