A sonic time scan draws the TARDIS to the Fetch Priory on Earth. There, The Doctor and Leela discover an impossibly old human skull that is the key to a nightmare from The Time Lords’ past.

A murderous monster stalks the priory grounds, and within, someone is intent on unleashing a malevolent creature that feeds on death itself…

Image of the Fendahl was originally broadcast on BBC1 between 29th October – 19th November 1977
