Notes for Kamelion

Kamelion is revealed
The Doctor discovers the monarch is really Kamelion, a war weapon found by the Master on Xeriphas, which can be mentally controlled and used to adopt disguises and personas. Disguised as King John, the Master intends that Kamelion will behave so appallingly so as to provoke a rebellion and topple the real King from his throne, thus robbing the world of Magna Carta, the foundation of parliamentary democracy.

Peri saved from drowning
The Doctor's android, Kamelion, has made contact with his old controller, The Master, but Turlough, puts a stop to any further contact. The TARDIS has landed in Morocco, and Turlough spots a young woman (Peri) drowning in the sea. Meanwhile on the planet Sarn, Timanov begs for a sign of forgiveness from the fire god Logar. Meanwhile back in the TARDIS, Turlough spots a strange artefact in Peri's possessions. On the artefact is the same triangle symbol which is burnt into his own flesh.
