You know what cobwebs mean. Spiders…

In search of a cure for a sickness that’s so far claimed six billion lives, scientist Nyssa arrives at an abandoned gene-tech facility on the toxic planet Helheim. ‘Hellhole’, more like.

Nyssa’s not alone. The TARDIS has also been drawn to the Helheim base – and in its cobweb-coated corridors, she soon runs into The Doctor, Tegan and Turlough, her travelling companions of half a century past. But who, or what, has engineered this strange reunion? The Black Guardian, perhaps?

The answer’s here, in the dark. With the Cractids, in the cobwebs

  • Nyssa has cured Lazar’s disease. (Terminus)
  • When the TARDIS goes wrong, Tegan asks if it a Black Guardian trap. (Enlightenment)
  • The Doctor and Tegan argue over Turlough’s loyalty, during which Tegan makes numerous references to his alliance with the Black Guardian. (Enlightenment)
  • In reference to Turlough, Tegan notes that her aunt Vanessa always said, “once a wrong ‘un, always a wrong ‘un.”
  • The planet Helheim has a toxic atmosphere made mostly of sulphur and carbon oxides. It also has electrical storms and acid precipitation. The Cractids are its indigenous species.
