 Also starring are Nicholas Briggs, Alistair Lock, Lennox Greaves and Holly King.

 The Doctor decides that a holiday is required but the TARDIS seems to have other ideas and instead of landing on Armelia, where it is nice and tranquil, it takes him to a large dank spaceship which has seen better days.

 As soon as The Doctor starts to explore his latest surroundings a precarious hatchway, that the TARDIS has materialised on, opens and the TARDIS falls into a huge furnace. Horrified The Doctor has no alternative but to seek out a member of the spaceship's crew to assist him in the retrieval of his ship. Unbeknown to The Doctor apart from Vilgreth, a dim-witted hulk who claims to be from Earth, there is nobody else aboard. Except that is for a dangerous saboteur who is intent on destroying the spaceship for apparently no known reason.

 After meeting Vilgreth, who agrees to help The Doctor rescue his TARDIS, The Doctor is taken on a guided tour and is then invited to stay for tea. However, it is not long before The Doctor finds himself in a race against time to find and diffuse a bomb that the saboteur has planted amongst all the junk.

 Luckily he does but then some startling facts about the reasons behind the saboteur's need to destroy the ship are revealed and The Doctor realises that he may have made a huge mistake.

 The Doctor is informed, by the saboteur, that the ship they are aboard is known as a Planet Eater and that it is en route to Armelia the very planet which was to be The Doctor's holiday destination.

 The Doctor, though, has a quandary - how can he break the news to his new found friend, Vilgreth, that his beloved ship has to be destroyed or else countless of innocent lives on the planet they are heading for are in danger?
