What other items do customers buy after viewing this item?
Another adventure for everyone's favourite Time Lord. The Doctor (Tom Baker) and Sarah believe that they are back on Earth when the TARDIS lands near what seems to be a peaceful English village. But why is the local pub deserted? Who are the spacesuit-wearing figures with guns for fingers? And what does the mysterious return of formerly missing astronaut Guy Craven have to do with it? All is revealed when the Doctor discovers that the entire village is an elaborate dress rehearsal for an invasion of the Earth by the alien Kraals. This was the last story to feature the Doctor's companions Harry Sullivan and Sergeant Benton.

of many a TV/film outing through the years.From the classic Diana Rigg
episodes of "The Avengers" in the 60s to the present day with the massive
body count of "Midsomer Murders".
So its apt that the setting is equally put to good use in another
successful British institution "Doctor Who" in this story from season
13 albeit with a twist!
This story always seems to be forgotten about,nestling amongst other
fan faves such as "Pyramids Of Mars" and "The Seeds Of Doom".I dont
know why because its a little gem of a story.Admittedly,as has already
been pointed out,various plot strands are far too similar to "Terror
Of The Zygons" which had been broadcast just a couple of months
previously,but you still have the iconic pairing of Tom Baker and
Elisabeth Sladen as the fourth doctor and Sarah-Jane respectively.
Yes i know a better title could have been used to obscure the main
thread of the story but it is still consistently entertaining.
We also have a new race of aliens the Kraals(not Thraals as stated
on the video sleeve notes)in another retread of the all too familiar
aliens conquering earth scenarios,but come on thats the essence of
"Doctor Who" isnt it.There is also a swansong of sorts for another
mainstay of Who-UNIT,with the final appearence of Sgt Benton and no
brigadier(away in Geneva...again),Patrick Newell does an admirable
job with his Colonel Faraday substitute but its not the same.
So despite all that this is still(in my opinion)quintessential and
classic "Doctor Who".This story deserves a re-appraisal and a DVD
release so the masses can view it and see for themselves.Highly
recommended,especially for fans of the new TV series.
