Serial: 7F  Episode Nos. 670, 671, 672.  Title: Delta and the Bannermen

 

The Doctor and Melanie land at a tollbooth and are surprised upon arrival to have won a free trip back in time to Disneyland

in 1959 for some fun in the rock 'n' roll
years, along with a scheduled party of aliens in human disguise.  The tour party hits some snags on the way, however... the least

of which is they collide en route with a crude American satellite and crash-land at a holiday camp in Wales.  Their far greater

problem is that among them is a woman named Delta who is on the run from a viscious troop of aliens called the Bannermen who

have destroyed all from her race but her, and they mean to finish the job...
