Doctor Who (Christopher Eccleston) & the extended crew of his time machine TARDIS - Rose (Billie Piper) & Captain Jack (John Barrowman) - come to present day Cardiff to have a day off ... & give Rose a chance to meet up with her boyfriend Mickey (Noel Clark) again (who in the course of this episode will break up with her). But the holidays have soon come to an end when the Doctor discovers that Margaret Blaine (Annette Badland), last of the Slitheens (see episodes Alien of London & World War Three) has since her famiy's defeat become mayor of Cardiff ... & is in the process of building atomic powerplants in the center of the city, which, when blown up, will supply her teleporting unit with enough power to teleport her awa from planet earth. Of course, Cardiff wil be gone as well, but for good ...

It doesn't take the Doctor & friends long to capture Margaret though, & stop her evil schemes ... but how to deal with her ?

The Doctor is in favour of sending her back to her home planet - where she is convicted to death, so while Captain Jack is trying to fix the teleporting unit, Margaret tries pretty much everything - from sobbing to attempts on his life - to dissuade him from sending ehr to her death - nothing works. But what the Doctor hadn't acconted for was that Margaret actually did lure the Doctor to Cardiff, to use his timemachine & a dimensional rift that happens to just lie in the center of the city, as a powersource for her teleporting device. If she succeeds, she'll be gone to wherever she wants to, but planet earth & the TARDIS will be gone for good ... The only thing she didnn't account for is that the TARDIS is a living machine, & suddenly opens up her heart to Margaret ... & the heart turns Margaret back into egg-form, to hatch anew, & probably start a better life.

 

Though some of the dialogue is quite clever & funny, there's just too much talking & too little story in this episode. While the breaking up of Rose & Mickey is dragged out almost endlessly, & Margaret's attempts to dissuade the Doctor from sending her to her death also take up much screen time, the finale is (almost literally) of the deus ex machina-variety & fails to impress.
