Jon Pertwee stars as the Doctor in the original soundtrack of this
classic 1970 TV adventure, with linking narration by Caroline John.
“The planet is ours. It always has been!”
On Wenley Moor in Derbyshire, a
nuclear energy research center is suffering mysterious power losses and a
series of staff breakdowns. Investigating on behalf of UNIT, Brigadier
Lethbridge-Stewart calls the Doctor in to help, assisted by the
scientist Liz Shaw.
What the Doctor discovers is quite unexpected: the
power losses are being caused by a group of intelligent, indigenous
reptiles living in caves deep beneath the moor. These are the creatures
who ruled Earth before man, and they have lain dormant for centuries.
Now awoken, they still believe Earth to be their planet.
A power struggle
amongst the Silurians threatens to overwhelm the Doctor’s attempts to
achieve peace between the reptiles and the humans. And when a deadly
virus is released and spread throughout the country, the Doctor and Liz
must work against the clock to save humanity …
In an additional bonus
interview, Caroline John, who also provides the linking narration for
the story, recalls making Doctor Who and the Silurians for television. Download and start listening now!
