Doctor Who (Peter Davison), along with Nyssa (Sarah Sutton), Tegan (Janet Fielding) & that brat Adric (Matthew Waterhouse) are brought to England 1666 by their time machine, the TARDIS. There they encounter a land plagued by ... well, the plague, & villagers more than willing to irrationally blame it on hust about anybody they don't know. But they also find an alley in Richard Mace (Michael Robbins), a theatre actor turned highwayman, & they find technology far too advanced for that time period, & soon walk right into the trap of an alien Terileptil (Michael Melia as a dragon-like monster) who they find out wants to kill all the inhabitants of the earth with the plague to rebuild the planet as his homebase.Of course all our heroes try to escape, but not all successfully & the rest end up mostly as prisoners of the villagers thinking them to carry the plague or villagers mindcontrolled by the alien.. It is actually surprising that Nyssa manages to get back to the TARDIS & build some device to destroy the alien's android-bodyguard that is disguised as the Black Death, allowing our heroes - who have freed themselves somehow in the end - to follow the alien to London, where it plans to unleash the plague bigtime, & finally destroy it, but by accident start the Great London Fire.

 

This is one story of missed opportuinities: it has the plague, 17th century backdrops, aliens on the verge of invading, androids dressed as the Black Death and actors in the guise of highwaymen, but it all that adds up to nothing more than our heroes running to & fro & continuously getting captured by one side or the other but managing to escape somehow, with the plague only mentioned but never really used to build up a creepy atmosphere, making this, despite a great set-up that seems to be a surefire hit, only another lame alien-invasion-story. That the plastic alien outfit & the android's Black Death disguise look particularly unconvincing does not help either.
