In his time & space travelling machine the TARDIS (which oddly enough looks like a police phonebox), Doctor Who (William Harntell) takes his friends Ian (William Russell), Barbara (Jacqueline Hill) & Vicki (Maureen O'Brien), to the planet Vortis, that on the outside looks barren, just like the earth's moon ... but soon the little group is somehow fallihng apart, & they meet the different species of the planet: The Doctor & Vicki become captives of the antlike Zarbi, which seem to have no mind of their own but are telepathically controlled by  the Animus - a spider-like alien bent on conquest that sits safely hidden away under the surface of the planet & waits for its prey. Barbara meets up with the Menoptra, butterfly-like beings who, before the Animus came, had a paradise-like life on the surface of Vortis, but now they want to atack teh Zarbi, but since they are such a peaceloving people, they have no clue how. & Ian is taken captive by the Optera, distant descendants of the Menoptra who have retreated to underground, & have in the course of events, come to fear the light as such ...

Eventually, the Doctor & Vicki manage to overcome a Zarbi & put it under the Doctor's spell, then tehy meet up with Barbara & her Menoptra. Soon they come to the conclusion they have to find out & detroy the Animus, while elsewhere on the planet, Ian has convinced the Optera that he is not their enemy, & plans to attack the Animus too.

The Animus though proves to be a tough cookie, & almost defeats all of its enemies, & in the end, only Barbara, whom the Animus has underated, manages to destroy the Animus ...

& the Optera, the Menoptra & the Zari can henceforth live in peace again.

 

It's hard to really pass judgement on this episode, everything ranges from the fascinating to the ridiculous, be it the insect costumes, the sets, the acting or the story as such. Perhaps, if more effort would have been put into the ridiculous aspects of the episode (the Optera & Menoptra-costumes are especially bad, as is the cheesy ending), this one could have been a great episode, but as it is, many good moments are destroyed by utter hilarity.
