Written by: Andrew Smith
This beloved three-part epic begins with Full Circle as the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) and the TARDIS arrive on the planet Alzarius, where, with the inhabitants of a crashed Starliner and a group of young rebels called the Outlers, they are terrorized by a race of Marshmen. In State of Decay, a bloody battle ensues when the Doctor faces off against the wicked Great Vampire. Warrior's Gate concludes the trilogy with the hijacking of the TARDIS to a strange white void that appears inescapable-but is it?
