Dragonfire: At the Iceworld Trading Colony on Svartos, the Doctor and Mel unexpectedly encounter an old 'friend'. The penniless ad desperate Sabalom Glitz has only one option to leave Svartos - to find the fabled 'Dragonfire' treasure concealed somewhere in the depths of the planet.
Joined by Ace, a teenage waitress with a love of explosives, the group venture off to uncover lost riches, not knowing that Kane, Iceworld's ruthlessly intimidating overlord, will gladly murder them all to gain possession of the Dragonfire for himself. Before long the Doctor finds hismelf playing a deadly game of cat and mouse with Kane's mercenaries, descending through the ice cabers ever closer to the deadly gaze of the monstrous dragon that lurks below...
The Happiness Patrol: On the planet Terra Alpha, bright fluorescent lights and garish candy-striped colours abound. The population constantly display happy smiles. There's no sadness on Terra Alpha. Anyone feeling remotely glum disappears. Quickly. Having heard disturbing rumours, the Doctor and Ace arrive to topple the entire regime overnight.
But they haven't reckoned upon the varied punitive measures enforced by colony leader Helen A. There are many delicious ways to vanish on Terra Alpha - you can be hunted down by the omnipresent Happiness Patrol or mauled by Helen A's ravenous pet, Fifi. But an espicially unlucky few will find themselves in the sweetie factory manned by Helen A's psychotic henchman - the Knady Man.
This time, happiness will prevail´┐Ż
