The Doctor, Sarah and Harry return to Earth in response to the Brigadier's summons. UNIT are investigating a series of attacks on North Sea oil rigs and have set up a temporary HQ in the Scottish village of Tullock. The attacks are the work of a huge cyborg, the Skarasen, controlled by a group of aliens called Zygons whose spaceship lies at the bottom of Loch Ness. The Zygons plan to take over the Earth as a substitute for their own planet, which has been devastated by solar flares. They are using their shape-shifting abilities to take on the identities of locals whose inert bodies are held aboard their ship.
As we've reported, there are Amazon pre-orders
for several Doctor Who
titles which don't have any dates formally announced by the BBC for them yet. The most wanted of these titles right now are the DVD and Blu-ray Disc versions of Doctor Who - The Complete 7th Series
(the most recently aired season, already available as half-season sets). But there are also 5 items from the classic original program, including the highly anticipated release of Doctor Who - Story #080: Terror of the Zygons
. We're still waiting on the official word on that 2-DVD set, along with all the other items mentioned here. However, Amazon has updated their entry for Zygons
with a first look at the cover art for this 4th Doctor story! Our thanks to reader David Curry for pointing it out to us, so we can share it with all of you. Keep in mind that this might not be final, and could be subject to change. But honestly, this looks great and they probably don't have to change a thing! Check it out:
