In this, the first adventure of his third 'incarnation', Doctor Who, Liz Shaw, and the Brigadier grapple with the nightmarish invasion of the Autons - living, giant-sized, plastic-modelled 'humans' with no hair and sightless eyes; waxwork replicas and tailors' dummied whose murderous behaviour is directed by the Nestene Consciousness - a malignant, squid-like monster of cosmic proportions and indescribably hideous appearance.
