Synopsis[]

A short break on a sunny Hawaiian beach soon turns sinister when a lone soldier approaches them seeking help.

Summary[]

Part 1[]

The TARDIS materializes on a beach in Kauai, Hawaii on a clear day, and the Doctor decides that Team TARDIS should enjoy a day at the beach. Before long, however, a dog runs up to them. The Doctor is able to tell that the dog is asking for help, and immediately follows. After passing a small minefield, the Doctor finds a small speedboat containing the dead body of a UNIT officer killed by what would appear to be a Silurian weapon.

Out in the ocean, a small cluster of rigs are visible, and the Doctor, Travis, Milley and the dog (identified as a UNIT officer named Sergeant Puppers), head out in the speedboat. Along the way, however, they are attacked by a giant crab. Travis recalls that crabs are sensitive to light and fires a flare gun in its direction, temporarily blinding it.

They arrive at the rig to find a small troop of UNIT soldiers - Corporals Barton and Hartley, and Sergeant Tombs. The rigs make up PACMISS, the Pacific Missile Control Station, formerly a launch site for a nearby nuclear missile silo, now decommissioned. The troop was there to "Doctor-proof" it, preventing the Doctor from accessing it and denying UNIT future access to the missiles. However, the base is no longer under UNIT control - it has been occupied by the Sea Devils.
