They are caught quickly in a power struggle between the cruel Marshal of Solos and a young Solonian named Ky over the future of Solos. Can the Doctor stop the Marshal’s plan to wipe out the indigenous life of Solos? What kind of creature are the Solonians mutating into? How could this story possibly be six episodes long? Find out in the latest episode of The Doctor’s Companion! And remember, BEWARE OF SPOILERS!!
