Doomwatch was a British organisation. In 2003, when PSI machine technology was developed, they feared that such devices could be used to alter people's memories, removing elements that would be deemed "undesirable". When Brigham Elisha Dashwood III developed his own version of the PSI machine, the United Nations sent Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart to investigate its possible misuse. (AUDIO: Minuet in Hell)
