Overview

Getting the fourth segment of the Key to Time is the easiest part of the trip to the planet Tara, whose idyllic atmosphere lulls the Doctor (Tom Baker) into a mood to go fishing and leave the segment-tracing to Romana (Mary Tamm). She locates it after a short walk on a beautiful day, but her luck changes when she meets the courtly Count Grendel (Peter Jeffrey). Contrary to appearances, Tara is a hotbed of political intrigue, and beneath its Old World veneer lies a surprising advanced level of technological development that includes lifelike androids and electric swords. Count Grendel mistakes Romana for an android double of a princess, and carries her away for future use in his plot to wrench the crown from its rightful claimant, Prince Reynart (Neville Jason). Meanwhile, the Doctor arouses suspicion when Prince Reynart's men discover him fishing on the prince's estate. Before he and Romana are reunited, the Doctor will be unwillingly thrust in the roles of android repair-man, king-maker and ultimately, swordsman - when finds himself locking swords with Grendel, the finest swordsman of all Tara.
