An alien, a criminal, a vampire and an actress audition for the part of The Eighth Doctor’s next companion
Doctor John Smith is in need of a new novitiate, pupil, trainee, or some other appropriate word, and has received videos from four applicants whom he’ll be reviewing at the conference at the Greenwich Cathcart hotel.
Coinciding with this X-Factor / Apprentice / Charlie and the Chocolate Factory disappoint-a-thon are such diverse C-plots as a sentient software package, a megalomaniac hacker’s attempt to hijack said software package, a stranded alien’s attempt to hijack said C-plot, an impromptu vampire’s attempt to hijack the TARDIS, and a failed actress’ attempt to hijack the Doctor’s emotions.
