The planets Janus Prime and Menda are diametrically opposed in orbit round a vast Red Giant star. But while Menda is rich and fertile in the light of the sun, Janus Prime endures everlasting night, its moon causing a permanent solar exlipse.

When the Doctor and Sam arrive on Janus Prime, they find themselves in the middle of a war between rival humans colonising the area. The planet is littered with ancient ruins, and the Mendans are using a mysterious hyperspatial link left behind by the planet's former inhabitants. But what is it true purpose?

The Doctor and Sam must piece together a centuries old puzzle. How can Janus Prime's mmon weigh billions of tons more than it should? Why is the plant riddled with deadly radiation? As the vilence escalates around them, will the time travellers survive to discover the answers?
