Spearhead from Space
Exiled to Earth in the late 20th century by his own people – the Time Lords – the newly regenerated Doctor arrives in Oxley Woods alongside a shower of mysterious meteorites. Investigating these unusual occurances is the newly-formed United Nations Intelligence Task Force – UNIT for short. Lead by Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart, UNIT are soon called into action when people and meteorites start going missing. Most puzzling of all is the attempted kidnap of a strange hospital patient – a man with two hearts, who insists he recognises the Brigadier… The new Doctor soon joins forces with his old friend, UNIT, and recently recruited Dr Liz Shaw.
For 200 years the secret of Devil’s End village has lain dormant, as the burial mound, the so-called Devil’s Hump, has remained sealed. Until now, at midnight on April 30th on the greatest occult festival of the year, as Professor Horner prepares to break it open. But just what evil treasures lie buried there? Will the local white witch’s warnings of doom and destruction be fulfilled? Who or what is the mighty Azal? But even more disturbing for the Doctor and Jo, just how is the Reverend Magister, alias the infamous Master, involved in the mystery?
The Time Warrior
The Doctor is called in by UNIT to investigate when a number of scientists go missing from a top security institute. Following the kidnappings back in time to the Middle Ages, he is unaware that investigative journalist Sarah Jane has stowed aboard the TARDIS.
As events unfold, The Doctor discovers a sinister alien, intent on altering the future of mankind…
