Overview
Death stalks the fogbound streets of Victorian London. Young women are going missing. Horribly mutilated bodies are found floating in the Thames. And criminal gangs terrorise the innocent.

At the heart of this tangle web sits the mysterious Li H'sen Chang, sorceror and hypnotist, and his grotesque sidekick - an all-too-lifelike ventriloquist's dummy, Mister Sin.

The Doctor dons deerstalker and cape to seek out the sinister force lurking in the shadows of the metropolis. For the talons of Weng-Chiang are reaching out to shred the human race...

This story was originally broadcast on BBC1 between 26th February - 2nd April 1977
