The TARDIS lands in 17th century England which is being stalked by a robotic death-like figure. The locals seem to be under a strange mesmeric spell.

Broadcast notes:

Intro: Tonight's adventure might be characterized as Henry VIII with monsters as The Doctor, Tegan and Nyssa guide the TARDIS to 17th century England and find that era is not immune to danger from another planet. You might say that "The Visitation" is the worst of both worlds.

Outro: The Doctor and his comrades had such a splendid time in England that they will be loathe to leave. Next week, the only traveling the TARDIS will do is through time, moving ahead to the England of 1925, where, among other delights, they will attend a fancy dress ball. Doesn't that sound smashing? Be with us next Sunday evening at 11 and discover the "Black Orchid." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
