The Doctor & Co go on a road trip to Peking with Marco Polo. Meanwhile, a man by the name of Tegana is plotting to steal the TARDIS.
The Doctor, Susan, Barbara and Ian arrive on the Plain of Pamir, see a yeti twice and never mention it ever again. Then they’re held captive, as per usual, by a group of Mongols and a European dude named Marco Polo. One of the former, Tegana, believes they’re mountain spirits; Marco Polo thinks they’re too valuable to kill; and both of them want to steal the TARDIS. And so off they go on a road trip to see the Kublai Khan.
This is the first of many lost Doctor Who stories – lost in the sense, that we can only really listen to the episodes, not watch them. However, a fantastic and nerdy production company called ‘Loose Cannon Productions’ re-assembled this Doctor Who story from the original audio, still photos taken on set during production and a video (re)creation of the intro and outro, featuring Mark Eden who played the titular character back in 1963.
