Carnival of Monsters - Plesiosaur

Free to travel through Time and Space again the Doctor plans to take Jo to Metebelis 3

Unfortunately the TARDIS materialises within the hold of a cargo ship. It appears the tramp steamer is crossing the Indian Ocean in 1926, but the Doctor has his doubts. Things take a strange turn when they meet the passengers and discover that they are playing out the events of a small slice of time over and over; events where a prehistoric creature crashes out of the sea and threatens the ship.

Story background: 1973. Written by Robert Holmes, produced by Barry Letts. Notable for: Various creatures make cameos when they are seen on the Miniscope screen - including the cybermen - the only time the third Doctor saw anything of them during his televised tenure.
