In Egypt, archaeologist Howard Carter unearths an ancient secret buried in the Valley of the Kings. On the island of Mendolovinia, a deranged academic attempts to push back the frontiers of the human mind. In war-torn London, a cockney spiv takes possession of a bizarre alien object. And in a military bunker in the cold heart of Antarctica, the strangest and deadliest of the Doctor's enemies lies in wait.

Four adventures in time and space, to mark Doctor Who's 45th anniversary, featuring the Seventh Doctor, Ace and Hex.
