A wealthy ex-soldier has gathered his three sons and their respective wives together in his isolated country mansion to celebrate his birthday, away from the distractions of 1920s civilization in what promises to be a quiet and dignified occasion.

However, strange things are aboard that night – all the clocks in the mansion have stopped, portents of a coming apocalypse can be found everywhere, spectral figures can be spotted lurking the corridors out of the corner of your eye, and if you listen closely you can just hear someone... or something... laughing insanely. Is the family losing their minds, or is something reaching out to them from beyond the grave?

The Doctor and Peri arrive at the mansion, claiming something murderous is prowling the dark woods outside and soon one of the family is dead while others disappear. The time travellers are immediately suspected, and as they attempt to establish their innocence and find out the truth it becomes clear that they are dealing with an old enemy, one they never expected to see again.

Hehehe... neato.

I think the Doctor and Peri's skulls look quite jolly there, somehow.

That's whole "grinning skull" business, right there.
