that the sinister activities of other alien visitors have made the
villagers extremely suspicious of outsiders. And as a result of the
alien Terileptils’ evil schemes, the Doctor finds himself on the point
of playing a key role in a gruesome historical event… Matthew
Waterhouse, who played Adric in the original TV serial from 1982, reads
