The Doctor is aided by a space yokel from the Wild West while a pirate in a medieval spacesuit and a lady in a metal wig try to trap him
The Doctor and his companions, Jamie and Zoe (aka JayZ), materialise aboard a satellite, or a space beacon, just as space pirates space blow it up. They survive, of course, locked inside one of the isolated compartments of the beacon. In the future, you see, space beacons, among other things, are made of Argonite, the most valuable mineral in the galaxy, and the space pirates steal space beacons and then space melt them down to get the precious mineral.
Enter stage left, The Interstellar Space Corps, a law-enforcement organisation in hot pursuit of the pirates.
Enter stage right, Milo Clancey, a Wild-West prospector and space yokel, whom the Space Corps suspect of being the mastermind behind the pirates.
Enter through a trapdoor centre-stage, Madeleine Issidri, a lady who wears a giant metal Nefertiti wig, and who runs one of the largest Argonite mining companies in the galaxy, and who also just happens to be the sworn enemy of Milo Clancey.
Holy Smokes. Excitement coming up, right? Well. We’ll see.
