The Rani is a prisoner. Of the Tetraps. Those hideous rodent-like vampires over which she once ruled. No longer. The devious Urak, her erstwhile disciple, has turned the tables. The Rani is put on trial. And condemned to death. A sentence to be commuted if she exercises her unique scientific prowess to solve a problem threatening to depopulate Tetrapyriabus.
Famine. Shortage of food.
The answer is in the cells where a pair of kidnapped humans and a pair of aliens are incarcerated. Destined to become the subjects of a brutal experiment. The Rani forges an unholy alliance with the four "guinea-pigs" in a perilous attempt to escape the nightmare of the planet...
Starring: Kate O'Mara

A Brief History of these audios:
BBV was the first production company to do "Doctor Who" Audio dramas (prior to Big Finish) but they were not licensed by the BBC. People like Mark Gatiss, Nick Briggs, Nigel Fairs, and others were the writers and Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Sophie Aldred, Lisa Bowerman, Lalla Ward, John Leeson, and Nick Briggs, among others, were the actors.
They were produced in very limited quantities and most did not get the proper shrink wrap you would come to expect from a new CD. However, it is the story that matters and for unofficial stuff it was quite good (no one else cared about Doctor Who at that time except the true fans who put these together).
