The Macra Terror

cd-themacraterrorThe Macra Terror
starring Patrick Troughton

An exciting lost television adventure starring second doctor Patrick Troughton with linking narration by Colin Baker.

When the Doctor, Polly and Ben visit a human colony that appears to be one big holiday camp, they think they have come across a truly happy place.

But a shadowy presence soon makes them realise that the surface contentment is carefully controlled.

The colony’s inhabitants have been brainwashed by giant crab-like creatures … the Macra. Insidious propaganda, broadcast by the Controller, forces the humans to mine a gas that is essential for the Macra to survive … but fatal to them.

The colony must be saved … but how? The Doctor and his team are up against it, particularly when Ben falls under the influence of the Macra. Can he be rescued from their evil clutches? Can the gas pumping equipment be destroyed, getting rid of the Macra for good?

The soundtrack to this suspenseful adventure, which was first broadcast in 1967, has been digitally remastered to recreate a very popular story from the Troughton era.

      not sure, probably about 2009, some early posts have a default date when we where adding items “on mass” when we changed systems, unfortunately we could not transfer comments and 1000’s were lost

      did you like change databases or program or something, because to loose a lot is quite easy to do from my experience

      we changed from Cute news to wordpress, you could copy data as in posts which we did “on mass” but not comments, we would have had to do them all individually which was just impossible.

      Site was much quieter then, we are getting nearly 3 times the traffic this year compared to last
