Egotistical and quite mad scientist Stahlman (Olaf Pooley) heads a gouvernment-funded project to drill through the earth's crust to tap into some rich energy resources right beneath. And while everybody else - including gouvernment supervisor Sir Keith (Christopher Benjamin), oil drilling expert Greg Sutton (Derek Newark), UNIT Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart (Nicholas Courtney), UNIT scientist Liz Shaw (Caroline John) and of course Doctor Who (Jon Pertwee) - thinks it is sheer madness, Stahlman presses on and even increases drilling speed way above safety standards, always knowing gouvernment would be behind him.

But as if a scientist dealing in things that are too big for him and probably blowing away the earth's crust wasn't bad enough, there is also some green goo coming out of the drillhole that turns everybody who touches it into a monster. Stahlman of course toughes it, but somehow he manages to hide his predicament ...

... and at exactly that moment, Doctor Who decides to make an experiment in time travel ... only he doesn#t travel backwards or forwards in time ... but sideways.

Eventually, Doctor Who finds himself in a totalitarian parallel world, where a parallel Stahlman is working on the exact same experiment as in the real world, only here Doctor Who is no longer on the advisor's list but is suspected to be a spy. And he doesn't have many allies, Liz Shaw and the Brigadier (with an eyepatch) work for the totalitarian gouvernment and support Stahlman's crazy experiment, while Sir Keith ahs been killed and Greg Sutton's protests aren't even heard. And everybody seems to be more than determined to have the good Doctor shot ... that is until the whole experiment gets terribly out of hand, when on one hand the drilling causes a massive earthquake and causes the earth to crack open, on the other hand, Stahlman does turn into a monster, and with other humans turned into monsters, he goes after the few survivors, Doctor Who, Liz Shaw, the Brigadier, Sutton and Stahlman's own personal assistant Petra Williams (Sheila Dunn).

But the worst thing is, the Doctor realizes he can save neither of them, as their world is doomed as a consequence of the experiment. All he can do is save himself in order to travel back to his world and save it frp, a similar fate ... but for that he needs the help of his companions, and that needs some serious convincing ...

Of course, ultimately the Doctor gets back to his reality (while the others get eaten up by hot molten lava), and only just can he save his world from a similar fate ...

 

If you examine the plot of this Doctor Who-episode too closely, you might just find out that it doesn't make all too much sense, there are plotholes and leaps of reason aplenty - however, while watching the episode this doesn't matter all that much, it's told with an eye for action and suspense, and the script moves on at a steady enough pace to keep the audience from second-guessing all that much. It might not be a piece of great science fiction, however that is not to say that it is not a piece of good entertainment.

You might just end up loving it !!
