On Christmas Eve, 1869, a funeral parlour becomes the home of supernatural phenomena. The Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) and Rose (Billie Piper) discover the true source of this apparition- the Gelth, an alien race determined to end the living. Armed with the help of a clairvoyant, and an unlikely historical ally, Charles Dickens (Simon Callow), they defeat the Gelth and put a stop to their master plans. The episode concludes with an exhilarated Dickens, encouraged to complete his body of work in his final year.
