"Lost since its first airing in the UK over 50 years ago, Doctor Who: The Macra Terror has been painstakingly recreated as a full-length animation in both color and black & white: an incredible reimagining of a lost classic. The Doctor and his companions arrive on a human colony in the far flung future. The colony outwardly appears to be happy and carefree. But behind it's cheerful exterior, the colony has been secretly infiltrated by a race of giant parasitic creatures called Macra. Macra brainwash the human colonists to mine toxic gas in the levels below the colony. Ruling the settlement from a control center in the heart of the main city, they scuttle around at night looking for food. The Doctor's friend Ben is soon taken over by the Macra and under their malign influence, he turns against the Doctor. As their influence spreads, the doctor sets out to bring an end to the Macra terror.
