4Q. Doctor Who - The Face Of Evil

The Doctor lands on an unknown planet and is captured by a warrior tribe called the Sevateem. The Doctor is given the Test of Horda, a test of the belief of the god Xoanon, which he passes.

On a nearby cliff is the face of evil - the Doctor's face - inside which Xoanon resides. The Doctor discovers that Xoanon is in fact a computer with a split personally, programmed by the Doctor, sometime in the past, with his personality.

Xoanon is tended by the Tesh, descendants of the original Technicians, who are at war with the Sevateam, descendants of the Survey Team.

The Doctor manages to remove his personality from the computer and reconcile differences between the two tribes. Leela sneaks on board the TARDIS and dematerialises it with the Doctor on board.
