Doctor Who: Carnival of Monsters, starring Jon Pertwee (1973/95 VHS) cert U

£3.99

Product description

The Doctor has promised Jo Grant a holiday on Metebelis III, but instead of the famous blue planet, the TARDIS materialises on board the SS Bernice, sailing to India in 1926. Before long the travellers are captured and locked away as stowaways. However, just as their eventual escape brings them face to face with their captors again - who claim never to have seen them before - the ship is attacked by a long extinct underwater dinosaur!

On the planet Inter-Minor, the visiting Lurman entertainer Vorg and his assistant Shima are demonstrating a dilapidated miniscope to the cynical and xenophobic governmental ministers who would prefer Inter-Minor kept free of aliens. Vorg explains that his scope contains actual miniaturised living creatures, inluding Cybermen, Ogrons and a group of humans aboard a ship apparently sailing to India! Kalik, one of the Minoran officials, sees an opportunity to exploit the dangers inherent in the scope to frighten the Government into implementing his exclusionist policies.

The Doctor and Jo discover they are inside the miniscope and leave the SS Bernice via the machine's conduits to find themselves in a marsh populated by ferocious omnivores - Drashigs. Meanwhile, outside the scope Kalik's machinations have allowed the Drashigs to escape into the real world...

The VHS tape is in EX+ condition.
