Jon Culshaw and John Leeson read Terrance Dicks’ novelisation of the 1980 story Meglos, an adventure featuring the Fourth Doctor, K-9 and Romana.

On the planet Tigella, the Savants and the Deons are irrevocably opposed on one crucial issue: the Dodecahedron, mysterious source of all their power. To the Savants, it’s a miracle of science to be studied and used to benefit all. To the Deons, it’s a god, and not to be tampered with.

When the power source begins to fluctuate, the whole planet is threatened. Zastor, Tigella’s leader, welcomes the Doctor and invites him to arbitrate. Yet the Time Lord may not be all he seems…
