The Web of Fear

Introducing Colonel Lethbridge…Stewart

Doctor Who – The Web of Fear is the soundtrack of a lost TV episode starring second Doctor Patrick Troughton and Frazer Hines.

Linking narration by Frazer Hines is added to the soundtrack to complete the story.

After being caught up in a web…like substance on its journey through space, the TARDIS arrives in the tunnels of the London Underground railway system, only to find the web also in the tunnels … as is the Great Intelligence’s Yeti.

How has this happened? The team learn that the impending disaster was triggered nearly forty years before, after their previous encounter with the Intelligence. Professor Travers accidentally reactivated a Yeti, thus giving the Intelligence the ammunition it needed to plan another invasion attempt.

The aim is simple: the Intelligence wants to drain the Doctor’s mind. Army forces, led by Colonel Lethbridge…Stewart, help the Doctor and his team race against time to stop them in their mission. Can they make it?

The Web of Fear marks the first appearance of Alistair Lethbridge…Stewart, a colonel in the British Army but soon to be promoted to Brigadier of UNIT, who became one of the programme’s best…loved and most recognisable supporting characters.
