The original VHS Cover for The Android Invasion…
When the TARDIS materialises just outside a sleepy English village, it appears the Doctor and Sarah Jane are nearly “home” at last.
But all is not as it seems in rural paradise. White suited, gun wielding guards stalk the countryside, while the village itself is eerily deserted.
As the Doctor and Sarah look on, a UNIT member leaps over a cliff to his death and, as the clock strikes twelve, the local pub is suddenly filled with strangely robotic villagers.
The UNIT member is amongst them, very much alive. What exactly is happening here?
The Doctor is mystified, setting off for UNIT HQ in search of the answers. There, with the Brigadier away, Senior Defence Astronaut Guy Crayford holds court.
But just who is his shadowy master, the Thraal, Styggron? Indeed, who are the Thraals and what have they got in store for the Earth? Why has the TARDIS dematerialised seemingly of its own accord?
The Doctor must move quickly to find the truth, for the very future of mankind hangs in the balance… Originally transmitted 22 November -13 December 1975, this four part story starring Tom Baker as the Doctor and Elizabeth Sladen as his assistant, was the last UNIT adventure for fourteen years, until “Battlefield” with Sylvester Me Coy in 1989.
The original VHS Cover for The Invasion of The Dinosaurs…
Arriving back on modern-day Earth, the Doctor and Sarah discover London is deserted and under martial law.
They eventually find an army patrol, but are arrested as looters, and are sent to a detention centre as prisoners.
But as their journey begins, their transport comes under attack by a tyrannosaurus rex. Dinosaurs have invaded London!
UNIT has been called in to assist the army with the running of the city, and to try and find a solution to the problem.
Released from captivity, the Doctor takes up his old role of UNIT’S scientific advisor in order to help try and discover why dinosaurs keep appearing and disappearing from London’s streets.
The Doctor suspects a deliberate plan is causing the dinosaur menace, but who is behind the scheme?
Who amongst his allies can be trusted? And when Sarah vanishes, just how does she find herself on a spaceship carrying hundreds of people in suspended intimation towards a new life on a distant new earth.
