"The Macra Terror" is a four-part serial featured in series four of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It is the seventh storyline from the season and aired on BBC One from March 11th to April 1st, 1967. The episodes were directed by John Davies with scripts written by Ian Stuart Black. They were produced by Innes Lloyd. The storyline stars Patrick Troughton in the role of the Second Doctor with his companions, Frazer Hines as Jamie McCrimmon, Anneke Wills as Polly Wright, and Michael Craze as Ben Jackson. The story takes place on a colony world populated by Earthlings from the far future. The premise of the story presents this idyllic planet where every day is a holiday. One young man however, voices his panic over the presence of some mysterious creatures. Though his peers dismiss his concerns, the Doctor feels that such a claim is worth investigating. Naturally, he encounters some monsters. It wouldn't quite be a Doctor Who story if he didn't, now wouldn't it?
