Episode Recap

The energy creature calms down after consuming the third Doctor. The Brigadier returns and is shocked to see the second Doctor. He conjectures that the Doctor has used the TARDIS to change his appearance and transport Jo somewhere.

The President wishes to end the experiment with the Doctors, but the Chancellor points out that they are facing an unprecedented danger.

The third Doctor and Jo wake on a strange planet. They explore, watched by a gel creature.

The second Doctor fills in the Brigadier on the anti-matter creature. The Brigadier decides to contact Geneva while the Doctor works out a way to neutralize the creature.

The Doctor and Jo find bits of the lab on the planet surface. They then find Bessie and drive off in her. They find footprints left by Mr. Ollis. He watches them from the cliffs.

The Brigadier is able to contact his men and finds out the gel creatures have the building surrounded. The first Doctor returns and advises the Second to switch off his force field.

The third Doctor explains to Tyler that they've been processed in some way so that they can exist in an anti-matter world. They are brought to their captor.

The second Doctor takes the First's advice and switches off the force field. First the gel guards and then the entirety of UNIT HQ vanish, falling into the black hole…
