The Master, a villainous Time Lord, has a machine that controls minds, but he can't control it. The Doctor needs to stop a plan that involves a missile and the disruption of a peace conference. This production is a 1971 script from the original British TV series, using narration to replace the visuals. The script itself is "quite dry," as narrator Richard Franklin, who appeared in the original, notes in an accompanying interview. But Franklin brings it to life with energy and humor. Minor bits such as the Doctor grinning at a security camera get hilarious treatment. Heavy on narration, this is not the best introduction to the original series, but fans will love it.
