It's 1913 and John Smith is a middle-aged teacher who works in a private school where he is assisted by his doting Maid Martha who was previously employed by his father. John has his head frequently in the clouds. He has recurring dreams which he jots down details of in his journal and recounts to Joan Redfern, the school's plain, kind-hearted Matron. They involve an alien time traveler who calls himself the Doctor who journeys through time and space in a blue box, picking up numerous companions along the way. But he wonders if it's all really just the dream. As John and Joan's feelings become more and more apparent is there more to Martha's concerns over Mr. Smith than just mere infatuation? Events begin to take another twist when a mysterious, other-worldly family with an army of animated scarecrows make their presence known. Written by
The cliffhanger originally focussed on John Smith being faced with the decision of ordering the schoolboys to open fire on the Family. See more »
In the opening shot of the scene where the schoolboys are practicing firing their machine gun, a large white modern articulated lorry can be seen moving from right to left in the background behind the targets. See more »
It was entrancing. It just had me hanging onto every word when I watched it.
It had been video-taped because I was out on Saturday night so I watched so many times that Sunday and the first time I'm pretty sure the entire village could hear me and my friend scream at the cliffhanger - the only reason I'm not giving it a 10.
That stuff is so frustrating!
I love it when personal touches are added to shows.
This episode was fantastic.
It is definitely among my overall Doctor Who favourites!
