Doctor Who (Colin Baker) & his companion Peri (Nicola Bryant) arrive on planet Necros, where one of his friends has been cryogenically frozen in an institution called Tranquil Repose, where the Great Healer works, trying to find a cure for every one in the place ...

All that would sound mighty fine, but unfortunately the Great Healer turns out to be Davros (Terry Molloy), ex-leader of the Daleks, who needs the cryogenically frozen bodies to build himself a new race of Daleks to again try to conquer the universe, & the head of Tranquil Repose, Kara (Eleanor Bron), thinks that with Davros' help she can become the galaxy's mightiest food supplier (mincing the bodyparts that Davros does not need into food) - but now she actively thinks she can get rid of him, & to that end has hired Orcini (William Gaunt), the assassin with a code of honour, to kill him.

Only 2 of Tranquil Reposes employees, Natasha (Bridget Lynch-Blosse) & Grigori (Stephen Flynn) seem to begin to realize there's something wrong, but they are captured by Tranquil Repose's guards Takis (Trevor Cooper) & Lilt (Colin Spaull) before long, together with the Doctor. All of them are freed though by Orcini, & soon all gather in Davros' controlroom, & it seems that Davros has won this time ... when a spaceship full of Daleks arrive, kill all of Davros' new Daleks & take their renegade ex-leader & creator prisoner. & in the end, Orcini blows up the place at the cost of his own life (a noble death), all the others escape - & guards Takis & Lilt admit they have called in theDaleks because Davros was turning Tranquil Repose into a perversion of itself ... but now Tranquiil repose can never again become what it once was, & the doctor suggests to try agriculture instead ...

Alexi Sayle has a totally unnecessarya role as radio DJ, trying to add some humour to the proceedings, but Clive Swift's camp portrayal of the vain chief embalmer with an incredibly fake toupet is really funny.

 

This episode really does not have a lot of story for 1 1/2 hours, which was not made any better by an endless stream of characters that do nothing to keep the story afloat (& the Doctor & Peri are among these characters), & the ending - despite a big explosion - is an anti-climax which fails to satisfy. Some of the more macabre details of the plot are quite appealing though, if that's your kind of thing.
