Invasion of the Dinosaurs

RETURNING IN THE TARDIS TO TWENTIETHcentury Earth, the Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith find London deserted. Crossing the city, they are attacked first by looters and then by a pterodactyl. Further anachronistic encounters, with a medieval peasant and a rampaging Tyrannosaurus rex, deepen the mystery.

Reunited with UNIT, they learn that London has been evacuated and placed under martial law following the sudden appearance of prehistoric monsters. The authorities are struggling to respond to the emergency. The Doctor reasons that the dinosaurs are briefly being brought forward in time, before being returned to their own epoch. He manages to catch a Tyrannosaurus but his plan to gather useful data to track the origin of the time disturbance is thwarted by sabotage. Sarah is nearly killed in the process. It transpires that the dinosaurs are being summoned from the past by Professor Whitaker and his assistant Butler, scientists operating a temporal beam from a secret bunker beneath Whitehall.

About Doctor Who Magazine

The Doctor has always challenged the linear conception of time. Since his television voyage began in 1963, the TARDIS has travelled backwards, forwards and even sideways through the mysterious Vortex. This lavish publication traces the development of these time-bending narratives, describing the rules that were laid down – and subsequently revised – by the series’ writers and producers. We unravel this timey-wimey journey with exclusive interviews, rare images and revealing features that explore the most intriguing corners of the Doctor Who universe.
