He smuggled himself aboard a Dalek saucer that was heading towards the Daleks' Bedfordshire mine, and planned to rescue his brother Phil. However, he was captured by the Roboman Jack Craddock, but was saved from Craddock by Ian Chesterton.
They disembarked the saucer at the mine and met Wells, one of the slaves. He told them about the black marketeer Ashton, who smuggled people out of the camp. Ian planned to meet Ashton later that night and they left Wells.
They found Ashton's hut, but Ashton held them at gunpoint and told them to go back out until Wells arrived with some jewellery. Ashton gave them food, but the Slyther attacked the hut, killing Ashton. Ian, Larry and Wells fled, but Wells going in the opposite direction.

Larry realised it was his brother, Phil, who had been converted into a Roboman. Larry tried to make Phil remember him, even offering to take him to his wife Angela. Seeing that Phil was preparing to shoot them as runaways, Larry told Ian to run and then attacked his brother. Phil fired a short burst from his machine gun, mortally wounding Larry, but not before Larry strangled Phil. Both brothers died, and Phil's humanity appeared to return in his dying moments, with his last word being a strangled "Larry..." (TV: The Dalek Invasion of Earth)
