When he was still a kid, Elton (Marc Warren) saw the Doctor (David Tennant) for the first time - leaning over the dead body of Elton's mother as we shall later find out. Years later, with all the alien invasion stuff happening lately, Elton finds a group determined to track down the Doctor, whoever it is, a group that seems to consist of a bunch of low level conspiracy theorists. However, the group soon grows tired of conspiracy theories, and before long they turn their attentions to other things like forming a band and stuff.

Enter Victor Kennedy (Peter Kay), a very weird man who doesn't want to be touched because of a rare skin disease, a man most determined to track down the Doctor, and he has the equipment and even the skills to do so - all he lacks is a team he has found now in our motley crew of conspiracy theorists. Soon, the group makes real progress in identifying the Doctor's companion Rose (Billie Piper) and her mother Jackie (Camille Coduri), and before you know it, Elton has met her and gained her trust ...

Meanwhile, members of the little group start disappearing, and somehow Victor Kennedy is behind it all, but nobody realizes this ... yet.

Eventually, Elton grows to really like Jackie, but the more he likes her, the more he feels like a traitor, and he realizes he doesn't need his conspiracy theorists but is in love with one of them, Ursula (Shirley Henderson), and thus he wants to turn his whole life around ... when Jackie finds out what he's really after and breaks off their friendship.

Back at the conspiracy theorists'  headquarters, Elton wants to leave with a bang and take Ursula with him ... but then it's found out that Victor Kennedy is a human-absorbing alien, who absorbs simply by touch (that's why he didn't want to be touched), and before you know it he absorbs Ursula, then chases Elton down some streets ... until all of a sudden, the Doctor and Rose arrive in their time machine - to give Elton a proper scolding for tricking Rose's mum. Oh, and since they are here, they might as well destroy the all-absorbing alien (by having it absorbed into the earth in a consciously anti-climactic climax).

In the end though, the Doctor shows pity with Elton and saves Ursula from certain death. Thing is, he is not able to fully restore her, only to capture her face, mind and soul in a paving slab. She is not the real thing maybe, but Elton loves her just they way she is ... and at least they can have some sort of sex life (not my joke, this one's really in this episode) ...

 

One of the best episodes of the new Doctor Who series - which is kind of ironic since the series' leads only have cameos in this one. That aside the episode features well etched out characters, solid storytelling, some interesting concepts and plenty of consciously silly humour (like a Scooby Doo-like chase scene and a really stupid looking monster called the Abzorbaloff).
