These involve seeking a way to animate the dead through organ transplants and a drug discovered in the jungles of South America. Back in his small English hometown Peter continues his work, lining up unsuspecting locals including Linda Parker (Court) as subjects. Will anyone be able to stop him before his horrific plans spiral out of control?
