A Matter of Time: The Time Monster

DOCTOR: Jon Pertwee
COMPANION: Katy Manning

STORY: The Third Doctor and Jo Grant investigate the workings of the TOMTIT machine, a wondrous device created by Professor Thascalos. However, neither Thascalos or TOMTIT are what they seem, and just what secret power is locked up within the crystal of Kronos?

• This story is the third in Doctor Who to feature a different explanation for the sinking of Atlantis, the others being in ‘The Underwater Menace’ and ‘The Daemons’.
• ‘The Time Monster’ sees the last appearance of a version of the main interior of the TARDIS, as the set was unpopular and subsequently damaged shortly after recording on this story.
• The Doctor and his friends were previously menaced by a Minotaur in the Land of Fiction, in the Patrick Troughton story ‘The Mind Robber’.
