Some very strange things are happening in Arbroath when the Fourth Doctor arrives at the Fetch Brothers Golf Spa Hotel. Unsuspecting golfers are being eaten by the bunkers on the golf course. The twin grandchildren of Mrs Fetch, the rather strange and octopus-obsessed owner of the hotel, seem to have the ability to materialise from walls. People in the area can suddenly hear the thoughts of others – and they don’t like what they’re hearing. With the help of the Fetch Brothers junior day receptionist Bryony, and the hindrance of inept guest Ian Patterson, the Doctor discovers something huge, ancient and alien asleep under Arbroath… Can they prevent it from waking up, and destroying the world before the residents of Arbroath finish each other off?
