Unseen for 45 years — a classic Patrick Troughton adventure! The first UNIT story has been marvelously restored and remastered and brought back to life for you to own on DVD.

In order to escape an attack in space, the TARDIS makes an unscheduled landing and ends up deep inside the London Underground.

Here the travelers soon find themselves engulfed in a thrilling battle with the Great Intelligence and the Yeti, a deadly enemy set to invade the Earth. But as events take a turn for the worse, it becomes clear that the golden prize is not just the Earth, but the Doctor's mind too.

In order to present the complete story of The Web of Fear, Episode Three (which is still missing) has been reconstructed using the audio track and photographs.
