The Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) and his beautiful companion, Romana, discover that all is not well on planet Argolis when they visit its Leisure Hive in 2290. A 20 minute nuclear war has left the natives sterile, the surface uninhabitable and the invading Foamasi in charge. Trapped inside the Tachyon Recreation Generator, the Doctor ages hundreds of years. Only Romana's quick thinking can save the day and turn the tables on the Foamasi! Four digitally remastered, action-packed episodes, including a historic wardrobe change for the Doctor.
