To impress his new companion Rose (Billie Piper), Doctor Who (Christopher Eccleston) takes her to the end of the world in his police-phonebox-shaped timemachine the TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimensions In Space) ... actually to a spacestation orbiting the earth for the sole purpose to see the earth explode - & thus it's filled merely with filthy rich aliens - some billion years into our future (though I don't know when you are reading this, so it might ahve been yesterday).

Soon though it becomes clear that one of the aliens has brought little four legged robot creatures with the sole purpose of sabotaging the ship ... which is doubly problematic as there is neither security personnel nor technicians on the station & the station's stewart (Simon Day) is promptly killed by the robots.

& while Rose, more than a little disturbed by the sensationalistic aliens wanting to watch her planet go boom, is soon locked away, the Doctor, only helped by the humanoid female ree-creature Jabe (Yasmin Bannerman), whom he has a bit of a weakness for, is soon trying to put an end to all sabotage - & sucessfully, too, even if Jabe has to burn up in the process.

However, even if the space station is safe once more, the culprit is still to be found ... & it's actually Cassandra (voiced by Zoe Wannamaker), the last human (actually merely a piece of skin mounted in a frame after too much plastic surgery), who - typically human - tries to get some money out of pretty much everything, be it insurance money for the space station's failure, a staged hostage situation or merely wrecking the company behind the station (since she has money in their rival). & now that nothing has worked out, she has at least provided an escape route (via teleportation) for herself ... but the Doctor wouldn't be the Doctor, wouldn't he know how to return the teleportation process. & since Cassandra needs her skin to stay moist, the Doctor - out of frustration over having lost Jabe - just refuses to give her moisterizer ... & she goes out with a flap ... ouch.

The Doctor however returns with Rose to her present, to have some chips ...

 

A rather weak plot that does feature a second rate (almost) love-story & has one of its main characters neatly locked away to that end, & that doesn't come off all that stringent, is hidden behind some hilariously bizarre aliens, a light-hearted approach to the end of the world, & a predilection for self-conscious camp ... & for some weird reason, that is (in this case) enough to make the episode as such highly entertaining.
