It’s big ideas versus a low budget when Scott and Matt take on the second part of The Key to Time with the Tom Baker 4-part serial “The Pirate Planet. The Doctor and Romana head to the planet Calufrax where the second segment of the Key to Time is supposedly located, yet they arrive on a planet called Zanak, which has been hollowed out and fitted with hyperspace engines, allowing its insane, half-robot Captain to materialize it around smaller planets and plunder their resources. Can the Doctor stop the Pirate Captain from robbing every planet in the universe? Will he find the second Key segment before it’s destroyed by Zanak? What happens when a robot dog and a robot parrot get in a fight? Find out in the latest episode of The Doctor’s Companion! And remember, BEWARE OF SPOILERS!!
