Something is very wrong in 17th Century England.
The shadowy figure of Death stalks the forests, terrifying the local people. Behind the chaos, fugitive alien life forms called Terileptils lurk. Stranded on Earth, they have seized one of the local houses, murdering its inhabitants.
But just what do they want? The Doctor must discover the answer — and fast. For as events unfold, he finds he too is looking death in the face, not to mention the threat of mass genocide...
