Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Basil Dawson
Mrs. Dale spent the day with Sally and met her new vendeuse, Monique Char-brier. Bob passed his Board and gave the family details of his new course. Dr.
Dale and Andrew Gardiner had an argument about when the Nursing Home should open. Mr. Fulton took a furnished flat in Chelsea and Gwen told him she would have to stop working when they moved, as Billy could not get into the Nursery School. Miss Marchbanks returned from Scotland to Mrs. Mountford, who tried to be very sweet to her. Grandfather Dale invited the family to King's Acre for Hogmanay.

Leaving Frank Rogers to guard No. 2, Jet, Doc, Mitch, and Lemmy set out in the direction believed to have been taken by the mysterious ship which had apparently carried off the crew of the wrecked freighter. The next night the strange craft visited No. 2 again and its crew, believed to be Martians, on finding the freighter was now occupied, returned to their own ship and made off. Meanwhile Jet and his companions had reached the Argyre desert some 400 miles to the West and there Jet stumbled upon an amazing sight.
