Paddy Russell

Originally Aired On: Saturday, 24 September 1977

A classic adventure for Tom Baker's version of the time-travelling hero, and a rare kind of Who story that ventures into the realms of political satire and may have something to say about today's society. The planet Pluto is warmed by artificial suns while its population is taxed to breaking point by their money-worshipping leaders. When the Doctor and Leela arrive, they must save the life of a suicidal man.
