In the summer, an eroded Ogri began attacking people along the English coast. It stole the bones of its victims and used them to give itself a humanoid structure. The Seventh Doctor heard of the missing people and came to Blackpool with Ace when a building caught fire near the beach. The Ogri was attracted to the heat from the fire and came out of the ocean.
