Another adventure for everyone’s favourite time-traveller. Answering the Brigadier’s space/time telegraph, the Doctor (Tom Baker), Sarah and Harry arrive in the village of Tulloch, near Loch Ness.

A series of attacks have taken place on local oil rigs, and many are blaming the legendary monster. The Doctor discovers the creature to be the Skarasen – cyborg pet of invading aliens the Zygons.

Their own planet having been destroyed and their spaceship crippled, these deadly shape-shifters are now intent upon taking control of the planet Earth.

The Doctor and his companions must find a way to defeat the deadly Loch Ness Monster and its controllers, but the Zygons have the terrifying power to change shape and the Doctor is in grave danger when he finds that his friends and allies are not always what they seem…

    I watched terror of the zygons last night. I’ve never seen it before. Tom Baker is just brilliant. Shame Nessie looked a bit rubbish, but I can see past the dated stop motion effects. It’s a really good story and I can’t wait to see the Zygons again in November. 🙂

    Nice cover.

    if you have the beginning box set, then you will agree with me in saying that the 30 minute reconstruction of marco polo was brilliant. Imagine if they’d do it again for more completely missing stories:

    Mission To The Unknown (Animation possibly?)
    The Myth Makers
    The Massacre
    The Savages
    The Smugglers
    The Power Of The Daleks
    The Highlanders
    The Macra Terror
    Fury From The Deep.

    Just an idea…

    I got it in the start of August, I got it in the Tom Baker time capsule!

    • MasterKasterborous

      August 28th, 2013 - 8:26pm

      But not with all the special features. I think I’ll wait for that release even though the capsule looks awesome!

    Well, you never know. Just thought I’d say it as it comes.

    Breaking news.

    According to Wikipedia, the underwater menace will be released and will have episode 2 and 3 along with animated 1 and 4 in 2014. No accurate release date has been confirmed.

    Also, the moonbase release date has been changed to 2014 according to wikipedia.

    Since they’re next to each other in episodic order, will they be in a box set?

    Booboo needs to set up a page for this.

      No they will not, animation is expensive enough. The reduction in price for the box set would make animation not be worthwhile.

      I don’t know whether this is true but Don’t trust Wikipedia, it’s basically like rumours with things like this. As I say this may be the truth but I just want to say take it with a pinch of salt.

      August 26th, 2013 - 8:56pm

      I don’t trust wiki because anyone can put anything up.

    • Trenzalore

      August 26th, 2013 - 8:58pm

      Yeah, exactly

    • booboo

      August 26th, 2013 - 9:24pm

      we only set up pages for officially confirmed information Wikipedia can be edited by anyone an things are often made up

    I like the cover- I think the VHS one looks really funny with Tom Baker screaming (as horrid as that sounds) as it looks like he’s flying… But would like to see the episode.

    Thank you for that! I don’t care what the cover looks like, I’m just going to get it and have a good old wallow in nostalgia. No cover will ever outshine good, decent imagination!
