Despotic Time Lord Morbius is resurrected as a Fishbowl-Claw-Monster to… take over the universe?
An insect-like humanoid is crawling across the planet Karn and doesn’t seem to be in a good way. Things take a definite turn for the worse when a man with a hook for a hand catches up with the poor creature and cuts its head off! Why would he do such a thing? To bring it to his Frankenstein impersonating master, Dr Solon, of course who is hell-bent on reanimating the evil despotic Time Lord, Morbius. He just needs to get his hands on an empty cranium to complete the pick n’ mix monster he’s been creating to house the Time Lord’s disembodied essence.
The TARDIS team appear on Karn shortly afterwards, even though they were meant to be taking Sarah Jane back to London. Again. The Doctor is convinced the Time Lords have brought them off course, but perhaps the Sisterhood of Karn has something to do with that. Whatever is going on, the Doctor and Sarah Jane better keep their wits about them if they’re going to get off the planet and not lose their heads in the process.
