On Rose’s (Billie Piper) first adventure through time and space, the ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) takes her to a space station in the far future, to watch the spectacle as the expanding sun destroys planet Earth.

Joined by alien guests from every corner of the universe (including the first appearances of fan-favourite characters Lady Cassandra and the Face of Boe), the Doctor and Rose soon find that one of the guests seeks to take control of the station with an army of robotic spiders. With Rose in danger, the Doctor must find and stop whoever is responsible before time runs out.
