Doctor Who (David Tennant) and Martha (Freema Agyeman) land their
time-and-space-machine TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimensions In Space) on a
spaceship that is falling onto a sun - and before they know it they get
sealed off from the TARDIS and now have but one way to survive: help the
overworked Captain MacDonald (Michelle Collins) and her crew save their
spaceship from certain destruction - which is made all the more difficult
because a) several sections of the ship have been completely shut off the
rest as an emergency measure and b) two crewmembers (Matthew Chambers,
Gary Powell) have mutated into some kind of monsters shooting lethal heat
rays from their eyes.
Of course, the Doctor ultimately figures out that the ship has been
mining the sun but the sun is a living organism and wants back what's hers
- so the Doctor jettisons the sun particles and saves everyone including
himself, Martha and the TARDIS, even though he himself has almost been
turned into a heatray shooting monster himself and Martha almost got shot
into the sun.
Highly derivative of the Tom Baker-episode Planet of Evil (David
Maloney) from 1975, the actual story of this episode is rather tense and
interesting - but unfortunately it also leaves too little time (roughly 45
minutes) for the supporting characters to develop, and much of this time
is wasted with Martha phoning her mother (Adjoa Andoh), which has nothing
whatsoever to do with the episode at hand and only the set-up for a
completely different story - which seriously damages this episode. Why do
they do such things ?
