SYNOPSIS

The TARDIS materialises on board a dark and silent spaceship. As the First DoctorSusanIan and Barbara penetrate the craft’s eerie gloom they come across what appear to be the bodies of two dead astronauts.

But the astronauts are far from dead, and are living in mortal fear of the Sensorites, a race of telepathic creatures from the Sense Sphere.

When the lock of the TARDIS is stolen the Doctor is forced into an uneasy alliance with the aliens. And when he arrives on the Sensorites’ planet he discovers that it is not only the humans who have cause to be afraid…
