The Doctor joins UNIT's investigation into the mystery surrounding Mars Probe 7. Space Control has had no contact with the astronauts on board since it started back from Mars seven months ago, and when the Recovery 7 rescue mission runs into similar difficulties, our intrepid team investigates.

"When Recovery 7 gets back to Earth, the astronauts are kidnapped after landing and Liz Shaw notices something odd very about the ship, leading to a surprising discovery about the ship's occupants – that they are a group of alien ambassadors who have swapped places with the astronauts. When the Doctor takes Recovery 7 to the Mars Probe to find the astronauts, he soon discovers that all is not as it seems and he has to act quickly in order to avoid all out war.
