Cover blurb:
Whilst trying to return Ian and Barbara to the twentieth century, the Doctor attempts an unorthodox new technique, causing the TARDIS doors to open in mid-flight, setting alarms ringing inside the craft.

Arriving on Earth, the time-travellers discover that they have all been reduced in size — they are now minute people in a world of giant objects. The TARDIS has landed them between the cracks in a garden patio — a garden teeming with giant worms, ants and cats. All deadly hazards for the miniature travellers.

To make matters worse, the TARDIS crew are caught up in the trials of a deadly new insecticide — DN6. A chemical so deadly that all insect life is threatened — a chemical that is also lethal to minuscule time-travellers...

This story was originally broadcast on BBC1 between 31st October - 14th November 1964.

Cover blurb:
In an attempt to return Ian and Barbara to the twentieth century, the Doctor tries an unorthodox new technique. It causes the TARDIS doors to open in mid-flight, which sets alarms ringing inside the craft.

The time-travelers arrive on Earth only to discover that they have been drastically reduced in size. They are now tiny people in a world of giant objects. The TARDIS has materialized between the cracks in a garden patio. The garden is teeming with giant worms, ants and cats — all deadly hazards for the miniature time travelers.

Worse still, the TARDIS crew learns that this garden is the testing site for a deadly insecticide, DN6. Developed to eliminate all insect life, the chemical may be equally effective against minuscule time travelers.
