M is for...


Marinus is a planet whose location is unknown, home to a people indistinguishable from humans.  Civilisation on Marinus led to the development of a machine called the Conscience, whose influence controlled the way people thought and behaved.  This was used to eradicate crime and violence, but a man called Yartek found a way to counter its influence, and with his followers, the Voords, who wore rubber suits (this may have been how they resisted the Conscience) attempted to seize the machine.  Four of its Keys were scattered to the corners of Marinus, and the planet fragmented into a variety of cultures and civilisations, including Morphoton, ruled by disembodied brains, and the city of Millenius, civilised but with a draconian legal system.  An attempt by the keeper of the Conscience, Arbitan, to recover the Keys succeeded, thanks to the Doctor and his companions, but he was murdered by Yartek, who was tricked by Ian Chesterton into destroying the machine.  Nothing is known of how the planet developed after this.
