The Doctor and Lucie battle a rockstar environ-mentalist intent on turning the Earth into a Brussels sprout.
The Doctor receives a call on the Space-Time Telegraph to pop by Earth during a period of extreme drought. His mission is to take a closer look former rockstar Alex Marlowe (played by Nigel Planer of The Young Ones fame), who has reinvented himself as a pseudo-fascist environmentalist intent on saving Mother Nature from the destructive forces of mankind. And in order to do so, Marlowe has constructed five gigantic bio-domes, in which – spoiler alert – he is growing Krynoids.
Meanwhile, Lucie Miller, properly teaming back up with The Doctor for the first time since his 600-year stint on Orbis, has infiltrated Marlowe’s compound.
But Marlowe knows to expect them both, and our heroes will need more than weed killer to save the day.
