Dr. Tom Reynolds, along with his friend Professor Howard Ogden and local guide Zahir, finds himself in the midst of strange cults and sinister rituals as he navigates the treacherous jungles of India. Jon Hall stars as Dr. Reynolds (known as Ramar to the natives) in four episodes from the second and final season of the popular 1950's adventure series.

The Devil Soul: Ramar and Professor Ogden happen upon a funeral pyre and are shocked to learn that the dead man is actually still very much alive. The locals are convinced that they are witness to the walking undead; Ramar is convinced otherwise.
Urn Of Destiny: After removing "The Urn of Destiny" from the sacred Tomb of Akara, an American archaeologist falls under a strange spell that drives him to murderous rage and leaves him with no recollection of his violent behavior. Unable to figure out the cause of the strange disorder, Dr. Reynolds consults a local doctor, who tells him that the relic is cursed.
The Forbidden Village: While trekking through the jungle to get a glimpse of the forbidden village, Dr. Reynolds and Professor Ogden come to the aid of an American photographer who has just been chased from the holy city. The locals believe this stranger's trespassing has caused a mysterious outbreak of plague in the village. Ramar decides he must re-enter the consecrated grounds himself in an effort to help the afflicted.
