Overview

In episode one of the four-part story "The Creature From the Pit, the Doctor (Tom Baker) and Romana (Lalla Ward) answer a distress call from the planet Chloris. Upon their arrival, they discover that the planet's precious metal supply has been monopolized by the covetous, power-hungry Lady Adastra (Myra Frances), who keeps the inhabitants in line with the help of the sinister Huntsman (David Telfer) and his wolf weeds. Complicating matters are two other antagonists: bandit leader Torvin (John Bryans) and a huge, amorphous blob (hence the title of this adventure). Former Doctor Who director Morris Barry appears in a cameo role as Tollund. Written by David Fisher, "The Creature From the Pit, Episode 1" was originally telecast on October 27, 1979.
