When the Doctor, Polly, and Ben visit a human colony that appears to be one big holiday camp they think they have come across a truly happy place. But a shadowy presence soon makes them realise that the surface contentment is carefully controlled. The colony's inhabitants have been brainwashed by giant crab-like creatures - the Macra. Insidious propaganda, broadcast by the Controller, forces the humans to mine a gas that is essential for the Macra to survive - but fatal to them. The colony must be saved - but how?
The Doctor and his team are up against it, particularly when Ben falls under the influence of the Macra. Can he be rescued from their evil clutches? Can the gas-pumping equipment be destroyed, getting rid of the Macra for good? An exciting "lost" television adventure, now with digitally remastered soundtrack, starring Second Doctor Patrick Troughton with linking narration by Colin Baker.

Not Coilin Baker but the wonderful Anneke Wills
Yes, These audiobooks cover the "lost" TV episodes, with wonderfiul narration. This book advertised Colin Baker as narrator. That's incorrect: another version of the Macra Terror. Linking Narration on this one is by Anneke Wills, who played Polly, nad the narators script is more complete.
The Doctor, Patrick Troughton, whose voice has a wonderful deep undertone and carries much of the subtley of the drama.
The start of episode 2 where the clifhanger is brought off the boil by the Macra scuttling off.
I was very pleased to have Anneke Wills narrating. It's a shame that the notes on the audiobook have this wrong.

A very silly story.
