Do you remember the 80s? The Rubik’s Cube… Duran Duran… deelyboppers… and the Cuddlesomes – pink vampire hamsters, the must-have toy of twenty-three Christmases ago.
For so long now, the Cuddlesomes have been forgotten, lying in attics and junk shops. But now they’re waking up. And they want to give us all a cuddle. A long, slow, deadly cuddle…
Landing in an England gripped by a strange new plague, the Doctor is soon on the Cuddlesomes’ trail. But the toys are just part of a twisted plan to wipe out a whole generation…
Peter Davison (The Doctor), Roberta Taylor (Angela Wisher), Timothy West (Ronald Turvey), David Troughton (The Tinghus), Matthew Nobel (John Dixon / New Cuddlesomes), Kate Brown (Miranda Evenden / Cuddlesomes / Doctor Cooper / Vehicle), Nicholas Briggs (Newsreader)
Directed by Barnaby Edwards
