The Suffering


Peter Purves (Steven Taylor), Maureen O’Brien (Vicki)


The TARDIS materializes in England in the year 1912, a time of great social change. The Suffragette movement is lobbying for votes for women, and the skull of the so-called ‘missing link’ has been discovered in Piltdown.

While Vicki falls victim to a strange influence, The Doctor and Steven investigate the fossilized remains. The Suffering has been unleashed. Can the travellers survive its rage?
