Three UFOs are destroyed by Moonbase Interceptors as a diversionary tactic by the Aliens to allow a faster, larger version to get through to Earth. It lands in Sussex at the mansion of leading heart specialist Sir Richard Conroy, where Aliens tell him he is to perform an operation on one of their Leaders - or be killed! As SHADO closes in, the Aliens fight back and Foster is wounded. The Aliens are taken by Conroy in his private helicopter to a hospital, where the surgeon admits defeat as the Alien is rejecting the human heart he has - a similar replacement would simply cause the same problem. Straker and Carlin arrive just in time to prevent Conroy being killed for his failure, and capture the Aliens. But as they transport them in a Mobile back to Headquarters, the Leader starts to glow and Straker and Carlin jump out as he self-destructs, destroying the other Aliens. Their UFO also glows, but takes off and disappears...

Was great to remember reading what I read as a child in the 70s, but crikey the plot holes! Why would the aliens need a human surgeon when the basic premise of the show is that they steal and swap out hearts all the time?
Why did the aliens use the heli when they have a perfectly good spinner?
How come Foster is shot by a pistol that took down sky1 and just has a headache?
Would not sky1 stall if it flew slow enough to pace the heli?
Straker would never be hands on in a mission like that he’s the CO?
I know it was for kids but come on!
