Doc and Lucie materialise in a Scooby Doo episode and wade through snow, battling fake monsters and avoiding holes of both the worm and plot variety.
Cowabunga! It’s time for a Scooby Doo episode, literally and it appears also intentionally, as it even includes an “And I would have gotten away with it, too”-type line of dialogue.
The Doctor and Lucie materialise on the Martian moon of Phobos, which in the future is essentially a skiing resort run by hippies and overrun by adrenalin junkies with questionable accents. Also on Phobos, atop a mountain, is a wormhole down which said adrenalin junkies (or “Drennies” as they prefer to be called) enjoy bungee jumping. For some time now, though, the camp “elder”, Kai Tobias (played by Timothy West) has been telling stories of monsters, aka Phobians, living in the wormhole and occasionally coming out and killing tourists. His partner, Eris (played by Nerys Hughes, see screenshot here below), however, thinks this is all a load of utter nonsense. Well, Eris, that’s something we have in common.
