Plot Summary

  • 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.
