The Mind of Evil
By Don Houghton
“The mind of evil, Jo. I should have realized. That creature feeds on the evil impulses of the brain.”
Three situations that are linked together and it is nothing to do with the involvement of UNIT with all these scenarios or is it. In fact while he is trapped on Earth due to the fact of The Doctor stealing his dematerialization circuit from his Tardis The Master is up to no good trying to take over the Earth and he has a very complex and ingenious plan on achieving that goal. First he is trying to disrupt the World Peace Conference by getting the Chinese and Americans to go t war against one another by killing off each countries delegates. Then there is the missile that has nerve gas and is scheduled to be dumped into the ocean where it will be safe from being used against humanity. The Master plans on stealing this missile and aiming it at any European city.
Then there is Stangmoor Prison where the mysterious Keller Machine resides. It is a device that takes the evil out of the prisoner’s minds and makes them pacifist and able to rejoin society. But an unexplained rash of strange deaths like drowning in a dry room and eaten by rats in a ratless building has The Doctor thinking that all these events could be related. So when these types of deaths is happening at the conferences and the prisoners take over the jail The Doctor and Jo are trapped by The Master and are an added bonus to his plans of world domination. That and the Keller Machine has a mind of its own as The Master will eventually lose control of its alien ally and that is a bigger threat to his plans.
