An overlooked Futurama reference and the literal handwaving of interplanetary navigation whilst wearing marigolds. Not bad!
It’s Team TARDIS’s second trip into space and also their second collision course with fatal death courtesy of a sonic mine, only on this occasion they’re just-in-time-scooped out of their storyline by the medical ship Tsuranga, plausibly alerted to the ordnance’s detonation by robot dredgers if we’re being very generous.
Suddenly finding themselves floating further away from the TARDIS, they’re joined by a cast of characters that is more charming and fascinating than the remaining 30 minutes will allow us to fully explore. And sound the plot-twist klaxon, because an adorable little monster has stowed away onboard as well to nibble away at the ship, and the soon-to-be-fam must sate its appetite before it inadvertently blows them out of the sky.
