Most puzzling of all is the attempted kidnapping of a strange hospital patient, a man with two hearts, who insists that he knows the Brigadier. The new Doctor soon joins forces with his old friend, UNIT and the recently recruited Dr Liz Shaw, but time is running out as Nestine consciousness is planning to invade Earth... (Originally broadcast in four parts.)
