It is 1926, and the Doctor and Jo arrive on board the SS Bernice, a small cargo ship peacefully crossing the Indian Ocean.

Millions of miles away from Earth, on the planet Inter Minor, a travelling showman named Vorg and his assistant, Shirma, arrive to entertain the populous. With them is an amazing machine - an intergalactic peepshow called the Scope. As Vorg's show begins, alien worlds and strange creatures are conjured up from the Scope for the watching officials of Inter Minor ...


Carnival of Monsters is one of those quaint little stories that Doctor Who does so well. Set in a microcosm of its own devising, the story deals with space battles and world domination, but with politics and ethics. In the context of the series' history, the story marks the end of the Third Doctor's exile on Earth and his return to a life of intergalactic adventure. After nearly three years of mainly Earth-bound stories, Carnival of Monsters is like a breath of fresh air, invigorating the series with style, flair and wit. Robert Holmes yet again delivers a gem of a script, crammed full of endearing characters and enhanced by fine performances from the regulars and guest crew alike. It's little wonder that this story was chosen to represent the Third Doctor's era in 1981, when BBC2 screened its Five Faces of Doctor Who season.
