The Mind Robber

The TARDIS is in the path of molten lava and the Doctor is forced to activate the emergency unit to move it...out of the time space dimension and out of reality! When the TARDIS crew land 'nowhere' they stumble into a world where fiction appears as reality and where things exist only when men believe in them. It is a world peopled by White Robots and a race of fictional characters and monsters, by Gulliver and Rapunzel, by D'Artagnan and Sir Lancelot, and worse, by the Unicorn, the Minotaur and the Medusa.

As they explore the forest of words and the maze in this Land of Fiction new horros await the Doctor and his companions round each corner...will Zoe and Jamie be turned into fictional characters?.. is the Doctor at the mercy of a higher intelligence outside time and space as he knows it? Can he outwit the brain that is the source of this terrifying creative power?
This is an very strange and different story. It has moments of excellence, and unfortunately moments of cringeworthy terribleness. The idea and plot are novel and original, and the whole thing is rewatchable time and time again.
In the Myth Makers video, Wendy Padbury listed this episode as her favourite. She didn't say which she liked least, but somehow she couldn't recall the Space Pirates
