Doc and Lucie are locked in a service station with Bernard Cribbins, Lucie’s aunt and an actual member of Boyzone while monsters roam the parking lot.
Paul McGann’s Doctor and Lucie decide to break for lunch at a shabby service station outside Bramlington in 1974, but promptly lose their appetite when they stumble upon a dead glam rocker just outside. And this is pretty much where the logic of this story begins to crumble. The Doctor alludes to a greater knowledge of what’s going on at this point in space-time, and even hints at perhaps having brought them there deliberately, but then has to figure out the rest of the action/plot/mystery as they go along. Strange.
Tommy Tomorrow is an über Emo and it turns out he’s been contacting some pretty heinous alien beings, aka ‘The Only Ones’, by means of playing his incredibly annoying stylophone. Bad idea spandex, Tommy… Now the aliens have come to town.
