The Doctor (Christopher Ecclestone) with his companions Rose (Billy Piper) & Captain Jack (John Barrowman), usies his timemachine TARDIS revisit Satellite 4, a news staellite he & Rose have freed from alien invaders in the year 200.000 (see episode The Long Game). Now it's 200.100, & the satellite has turned into an almighty TV-land, where any number of reality soaps & gameshows are produced, & each of our trioget sucked into a different kind of show: the Doctor into Big Brother, Rose into The Weakest Link (complete with a mean Anne-Droid as host, voiced by the real-life mean host of the show, Anne Robinson), & Captain Jack into a makeover show. Soon though, all three of them realize they have to play for their lives ... & while the Doctor gets out of his program with his ingenuity, & Captain Jack because he always carries a lasergun around in his arse (really), Rose is vaporized, only minutes before the Doctor can save her.

The Doctor & Jack figure that the case for all the terror (& therefore the head villain) must be the Controller (Martha Cope) who rsides in the nerve centeer of the satellite, floor 500. But once they arrive on floor 500, they realize that the Controller is actually a slave of a much greater force, who was luring the Doctor & his companions here merely for help. 

& this greater force ... are the Daleks, the Doctor's all-time chief nemesis, who were actually thought extinct after they fought a war against the Timelords (the Doctor's race, which was annihilated in the war as well), but obviously, the Dalek emperor survived & built himself a new army of Daleks out of the corpses of his enemies.

 ... & thank god the Daleks haven't actually killed Rose but merely teleported her to their mothership.

Of course it's an easy task for the Doctor to save Rose, but it's much harder to keep the Daleks from invading earth, & he figures he can do so only by using the satellite as some sort of doomsday device, which will effectively destroy the Daleks - but also planet earth (which is still better than having planet earth - & who knows what other planets - destroyed by the Daleks). & very possibly, noone on the satellite will survive either ... so he uses some pretense to lure Rose into the TARDIS & sends her home to her time.

Even though she knows the Doctor only tried to save her life, Rose tries everything to go back to 200.100 to save the Doctor, while he is still building his doomsday device, & is quickly running out of defenses as the Daleks kill their way through the people the Doctor has recuited for guarding his back (including Captain Jack). & then they make it to the Doctor, just when he has finished his device ... but he just can't evaporate planet earth ... & it seems all is lost.

But meanwhile, with the help of her mother (Camille Coduri) & her boyfriend Mickey (Noel Clark), who has somehow found back to her, Rose is able to open the door to the heart of the TARDIS, where she can stare directly into the Time Vortex, become an all powerful being, take the TARDIS back to 200.100, evaporate the Daleks merely by the power of thought, & save the Doctor & earth alike.

But the Doctor knows a human can't stand having stared into the Vortex of Time for very long, so he absorbs all her time energy from Rose to save her life ... even if that kills him.

But wait, aren't Timelords always reborn as a different person with a different appearence & different personality ? Yes, & so is he, returning before long played by actor David Tennant.

Ah yeah, Captain Jack, even though he was killed, does somehow survive, too, but misses the leaving TARDIS only by seconds.

The Daleks are voiced by veteran Dalek voice-artist Nicholas Briggs.


Fun blend of media satire (which is too topical & will probably not stand the test of time) & alien invasion story, with some impressive scenes of Dalek ships & Daleks flying around like nobody's business. Only the esoteric ending is less than convincing.
