The Doctor is in a coma in the hospital having been shot by the soldiers guarding the TARDIS. The attending physician thinks the coma may be self-induced as a way of healing. When he recovers consciousness the Doctor manages to escape from the hospital and heads straight to UNIT headquarters and the TARDIS which has been relocated there. The military has only recovered fragments of the 50 or so objects that fell in what they thought was a meteor shower. Meanwhile, a nearby plastics factory seems to be producing something altogether different. A former employee, Ransome, tries to find out what is going on. Written by
