Storyline

The Doctor takes Ace back to the London district of Perivale where she grew up. Thinking that his young friend wanted to visit her former home which he discovers to be quite the contrary. For Perivale Is hardly the most exciting place in the world. Or at least it didn't used to be. As the duo discover when they are informed of a spate of mysterious disappearances that have recently taken place in the last few weeks. Some of which are old friends that Ace grew up with. Intruiged, the Doctor endeavors to uncover what is behind people seemingly vanishing off the face of the Earth. But doing so ends up getting the cosmic time traveler wrapped up in a deadly game of survival on another world. Pitting himself and his young companion against a race of cat like creatures called the Cheetah people. And an old adversary from the Time Lords past. Written by Robert McElwaine

Trivia

The character of Sgt Paterson was originally a policeman (and it was in this capacity that he investigated complaints of the Doctor's behaviour), but this was changed as the producer did not want a negative portrayal of a policeman. See more »

Quotes

The Doctor: An evil genius. One of my oldest and deadliest of enemies.
Ace: [sarcastically] Do you know any nice people? You know, normal people. Not power-crazed nutters trying to take over the universe.
