SYNOPSIS

In the summer of 1966, thousands of young people are taking their holidays with Chameleon Tours. And not one of them is coming back.

When the TARDIS lands at Gatwick Airport The Doctor is drawn into a web of intrigue and deception. To add to his troubles, Polly mysteriously vanishes.

Or does she? The girl at the Chameleon Tours desk looks like Polly, and even sounds like her, but she claims she comes from Zurich.

Who is she really? Who is behind these abductions? And for what sinister purpose? Soon The Doctor and Jamie must face a desperate group of faceless aliens – the deadly Chameleons

DEVIATIONS FROM THE TELEVISED STORY

  • The sonic screwdriver appears quite a few times in this story, whereas on television it was not introduced until the later adventure Fury from the Deep. The Commandant is referred to on several occasions as”the Manager”, with”Commandant” being a nickname rather than a title.
  • The Director states that processed humans die and the transference becomes permanent in four weeks, explaining why the originals of the Chameleon Tours staff are left behind at Gatwick.
