    8.4
    The TARDIS materialises on a deserted rocket in deep space, where the Doctor suffers concussion after an abrupt course change, and he and Jamie are attacked by a hostile servo-robot. Jamie manages to attract attention from a nearby space station, but the crew then attempt to destroy the apparently deserted rocket – and in order to save the TARDIS, Jamie must sabotage the station's asteroid defense laser. He and the Doctor thus face extremly hostile questioning, but the real threat is aboard the space rocket, where two Cybermen are preparing to infiltrate the station, open the way for their army to arrive and use the Wheel as the first stepping stone in an invasion of Earth. After the Cybermen are defeated, the Doctor and Jamie depart with a new companion – computer programmer Zoe Heriot, who finds her ordinary life dull and seeks adventure with them.moreless

    The Doctor, Jamie and Victoria arrive at an outpost drilling for natural gas in the North Sea. Mysterious heartbeat sounds are echoing through the pipes, there have been drops in pressure, and contact has been lost with several offshore rigs. Victoria is attacked by a monstrous form of living seaweed, and some of the base personnel are possessed by the poisonous Weed, which stings them and draws them under its control. As the Weed steps up its attack on the base, the Doctor discovers that it's vulnerable to high-frequency sounds, and drives it off with the help of Victoria's screams – amplified by his trusty new invention, the sonic screwdriver. However, Victoria has had enough, and she chooses to remain on Earth, albeit a century after her own time.moreless
