Patrick Troughton plays a dual role in this exclusive recording of a 'lost' television adventure, with linking narration by Frazer Hines. No sooner have the Doctor, Jamie and Victoria landed on a sun-kissed Australian beach than they are being shot at by murderous fanatics! A dramatic helicopter rescue places them in the hands of Astrid Ferrier and Giles Kent, two people intent on bringing about the downfall of the world's most dangerous man – who happens to look exactly like the Doctor. This is Earth in the near future, and Salamander's Sun-Catcher technology has been hailed as the answer to all the world's food problems. Yet is there more to his prediction of natural disasters than meets the eye? Could it be that the death and destruction which he appears to foretell is in fact of his own creation? The Doctor must impersonate the dictator in order to stay alive. In doing so he witnesses the might of his brutish regime, and discovers the terrible secret that lurks beneath the Kanowa research centre.
