Aliens commit identity theft and wield foreign stamps in Ben and Polly’s final serial
Patrick Troughton’s Second Doctor and his companions Polly, Ben and Jamie – aka “PB&J” – stay on Earth in this Doctor Who serial, more or less, as they arrive at Gatwick Airport in London, on the very same day that Ben and Polly left London at the end of (C027) The War Machines.
(Spoilers: This serial marks their final appearance as The Doctor’s companions.)
As they’re wont to do, they quickly stumble upon some alien misdeeds. Polly, in fact, immediately becomes witness to a murder – death by raygun, to be precise – and it appears an airline known as Chameleon Tours is up to some very shady stuff indeed.
Slowly but surely, the time travellers uncover an alien plot to kidnap thousands of youngsters, and a conspiracy involving postcards, foreign stamps and downright identity theft, and only The Doctor & Co can save the day!
