Storyline

In 2526, 8 Earth paleontologists and geologist were investigating a fossil find in a newly discovered case when 7 of them disappear. The only one who seems to have got out is Professor Kyle. She accompanies Lt. Scott and his troop of soldiers into the unmapped caves to see if they can find her colleagues. What they find however is the Doctor and his traveling companions Nyssa, Adric and Tegan who have also just arrived in the TARDIS. They're near the location where the scientific expedition was attacked and Scott suspects the Doctor. There are others in the in the subterranean structures however. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

One of the android costumes would later be repainted silver and used as the costume for the Raston Warrior Robot in Doctor Who: The Five Doctors (1983). See more »

Goofs

When the troopers are in the caves, the two dark figures in background walk past (to the right) and one of the troopers stops and turns around. As he does this the shadow of a crewmember can be briefly seen on the left wall. This is not the dark figure's shadow because they have already walked past. See more »

Kids today...
5 April 2010 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I'm not a Whovian by any stretch of the imagination, but used to watch every episode as a child in the 70s and 80s. How things have changed! I'm currently sitting here in 2010 watching this with my 7 and 10 year olds on SciFi HD on a 37" LCD screen with my kids absolutely falling about laughing at the effects, acting (how many times has that Cyberman said "Eeeexcellent" like Mr Burns from The Simpsons?) and the story-lines. This is just a few days after they were truly wowed by Matt Smith's debut as The Doctor.

Having said that, they are still sitting here nearly an hour and a half later... There must be something in it.
