Perhaps there’s someone who can help. A chance encounter with an old sparring partner leads Lucie to the Eightfold Truth – a bunch of crystal-bearing cranks who reckon a rebel sun is on its way to purge the Earth. As if! But what if they’re right?

The Companion Chronicles 4.4 - The Pyralis Effect
Release Date: 31 October 2009 / Director: Lisa Bowerman / Author: George Mann
Starring: Lalla Ward, Jess Robinson
A new adventure with the Fourth Doctor, as told by his companion, Romana. Long ago, the planet Pavonis IV was saved from certain destruction by the Doctor. Now it is dead, laid waste by environmental catastrophe, but a few survivors and their precious race bank survive on the starship Myriad. Their mission: to scour the universe for the fabled dimensionally transcendental obelisk inwhich their saviour travels, and persuade him to save their world again.
As the TARDIS arrives, by chance, on the Myriad, the Doctor and Romana are just in time to see the crew achieve their goal. Or so they think… Death stalks the corridors of the ship, the artificial intelligence CAIN has lost control, and a force is about to be unleashed that threatens the entire galaxy.
