Doctor Who (Christopher Eccleston) brings Rose (Billie Piper) back to her time in his time machine, the TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimensions In Space), only to find out they are one yea late, & Rose was reported missing, presumed dead ... & what's more, her mother (Camille Coduri) suspected her boyfriend Mickey (Noel Clarke) to be the killer. Before long though, all of England's attention is directed to something else, a UFO hitting Big Ben before falling into River Thames ... everyone in the country is now torn between panicking & throwing UFO parties ... & amidst all that, the prime minister has gone missing, & his substitute Green (David Verrey) seems rather weird indeed, even besides continually farting ...

... only one person, parliament backbencher Harriet Jones (Penelope Wilton) finds out what is really his problem though, that he is really an alien not at all reluctant to killing a few people ... but Harriet has little chances to tell anyone since she figures it's better to hide from a homicidal alien.

Green, the new PM meanwhile invites all alien experts to Downing Street, including of course the Doctor .... but why ?

To have them all killed of course, it would be easier for an alien race to take over the world with all alien experts gone, now wouldn't it ? & Green - & his fellow aliens, the Slitheens - even succeed in electrocuting the lot, excluding the Doctor, who, because he is an alien too, seems to be immune against electrocuting. And the Doctor even manages to lock himself, Rose & Harriet Jones in inside the cabinet, where the Slitheens cannot reach him ... unfortunately though, he also has no way of getting out, bugger.

Soon though everything begins to fall together, the Slitheens are not an alien race as such but a family of gangsters (alien though), who want to get their hands onto the British launch codes for atomic missiles, which are with the UN, to cause a worldwide atomic war, to then take the irradiated earth apart & sell the pieces to the highest bidders.

But how to do that ? Have an UFO crashland in Great Britain of course, claim it's the herald of a big invasion fleet & request the atomic missile launch codes from the UN, seemingly to defend the UK against alien invaders, but instead start nuclear warfare on an international scale, that's how.

The Doctor now figures the only way to stop them is to with his special mobile phone (the only connection to the outside from the sealed off cabinet) phone Mickey & tell him how to, over the internet, hack into the ministry of defense's computer system & launch a missile against Downing Street, to blow up the aliens once & for all ... but unfortunately him & Rose with them.

It works, & the salvation of earth is near ... but for the Doctor, Rose & Harriet Jones all seems lost, until Rose, unwilling to give up, figures to hide in a sturdy cupboard might as well save them ... & it does, too.

Earth is safe again, Harriet Jones is off to become the next prime minister (after the Slitheens' attack, most other members of the parliament are dead anyway), & Rose joins the Doctor for more adventures in time & space ... only her boyfriend Mickey refuses an invitation to join them.

 

A UFO crashing into Big Ben, farting aliens, a missile blowing up Downing Street, extraterrestrial gangsters wanting to cut the earth into tiny pieces & sell it off, alien invasion for the sake of profit & even announced by a slogan transmitted out into space - if that all doesn't sound like entertainment, you might not like (tongue-in-cheek) science fiction in the first place ... & this episode actually lives up to its promises, too, even if it doesn't go all the way concerning political satire. Plus, since this is a double episode (running approximately one and a half hours), the plot gets enough time to develop - which is not always the case with the new Doctor Who series due to its 45-minute format.
