In the 17th century, an old Tibetan friend of the Doctor’s reached out and touched the mind of an alien disembodied energy, known only as the Great Intelligence, giving it a conduit to Earth.
300 years later,the Doctor revisits the Himalayas because he wants to return the Holy Ghanta, an ancient relic he was given many centuries ago by the grateful monks and their Master, Padmasambhava, at Det-Sen Monastery. On arriving however, the Doctor istreated as a villain –blamed for a series of brutal murders in the area. Jamie and Victoria meanwhile discover the true culprits –the previously peaceful Yeti that live in seclusion on the mountainside have apparently turned violent.
The Doctor must convince the monksthat not only is he not their enemy, but the real foe –and the power controlling the Yeti –is living amongst them.
Most of the original 1967 master recordings of the six-part adventure ‘The Abominable Snowmen’ were lost soon after the programme’s original transmission. However, audio-only recordings of all the episodes have survived and have been used here to create six brand new fully animated presentations of this lost classic, as well as the one surviving segment, Episode Two.
