The first of a two release story finds the Doctor, Romana II, and K-9 on a planet where people are at war with raiders from their own future.

This is a very cleverly well-constructed tale that keeps the Doctor and Romana apart throughout. As a consequence, Romana really gets to show her strength as a character as she has to deal with trouble in her own time zone with the Doctor literally a thousand years away.

The story does have an ecological message, but it blends it very nicely in a way that's not preachy. It helps that the concept is unique in Doctor Who and the script has a lot of fun with the possibilities that may come. The story ends on a terrific cliffhanger that sets the stage for the next release superbly.
