-----After co-creating the iconic movie monsters Godzilla, Rodan and Mothra for Toho Studios, special effects director Eiji Tsuburaya launched his own company, Tsuburaya Productions. The first production under his new label was ULTRA Q, a 28-episode series that brought the theatrical spectacle Tsuburaya had become known for to television. The black & white sci-fi drama focused on Mainichi Shimpo photojournalist Yuriko Edogawa (Hiroko Sakurai, Ultraman), Hoshikawa Airlines pilot/SF writer Jun Manjome (Kenji Sahara) and his co-pilot Ippei Togawa (Yasuhiko Saijo), who partnered to investigate mysterious events occurring in and around Japan. These phenomena often involved aliens and giant monsters, many of whom would return in future Ultraman shows and movies. One of the most expensive TV programs produced in Japan up to that time, ULTRA Q was a ratings smash that paved the way for Tsuburaya Productions' first color series: ULTRAMAN. Complete, original Japanese broadcast edits - fully remastered and restored in HD!

Now, whenever the Patrol faces a threat too great for them to handle, Hayata transforms into Ultraman to save the day!

With highly detailed hand-drawn animation carefully lip-synced with the original 1967 audio, this new production allows viewers to once again experience this Doctor Who chiller in full. The Doctor (Patrick Troughton) and his companions (Jamie, Polly and Ben) arrive on a human colony in the far-flung future. The colony outwardly appears to be happy and carefree. But behind its cheerful exterior, the colony has been secretly infiltrated by a race of giant parasitic crab creatures called the Macra. The Macra brainwash the human colonists to mine toxic gas in the levels below the colony. Ruling the colony from a control centre in the heart of the main city, they scuttle down to the city at night looking for food. The Doctor's friend Ben is soon taken over by the Macra and, under their malign influence, he turns against the Doctor. As more colonists are picked off in the night and as their influence spreads, the Doctor sets out to bring an end to the Macra terror.
