The Doctor and his companions, Ben, Polly and Jamie, visit a holiday camp in the far future, which has been infiltrated by giant crab-like monsters called Macra.

Originally broadcast in 1967, this four-part story featuring Patrick Troughton as the second Doctor no longer exists in the BBC archives. But now, 52 years later, Whovians can enjoy the next best thing – an animated reconstruction (synched with the original audio recordings) that makes these crustacean monsters a whole lot more frightening than they ever were back in the day when Who budgets were stretched thin. (The creatures would make a return appearance during David Tennant’s tenure in the story Gridlock.)
