Beginning its four-episode run on September 30, 1978, "The Pirate Planet" was a follow-up to the previous Doctor Who adventure "The Ribos Operation." Having successful located the first segment of the Key to Time, the Doctor (Tom Baker) and Romana (Mary Tamm) are that much closer to restoring the balance between Good and Evil. Using his Tracer, the Doctor locates the second segment of the Key on the planet Calufrax -- but his efforts to materialize the TARDIS on the planet's surface are mysteriously unsuccessful. Keep an eye out for star Tom Baker's sore lip, the result of an offscreen misadventure with a pet dog. Largely filmed on-location in Wales, "The Pirate Planet" was written by Douglas Adams. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
