It's a lilium philadelphicum.

Is it now?

It's a lilium philadelphicum, is it? Hm.


Oh! Oh!

Oh, Ian! Are you all right?

- Nothing broken, lad?

- No.

It was another soft centre.

Well, come and sit over...

Look, over here.

There we are.

We shall never know what that was,

will we, Susie?

Grandfather, look!

- What have you found this time?

- Look!

Upon my soul! A city!

But how extraordinary!

A huge city!

Can you see any people?

No. No one at all.

No life, no movement.


- Can you see anyone?

- No.

- Let's investigate.

- Oh, yes, let's!

Something terrible happened here.

This place is dangerous.

I can feel it.

- I wish we could leave.

- Well, you don't have to convince me.

Er, Dr Who.

I think we should get out of this place.

But look, Susan's just found a city.

Wouldn't you like to explore it first?

Erm, well, they're expecting me at home.

They'll be wondering where I am.

I... I think we should go back.


Oh, well.

Hey, hey, hey! It's me, it's me, it's me!

Are you sure, Susan, dear?

It's not possible for any human form

to exist on this planet.

It was a hand! It touched me!

Hm. Then I'd like to find out

who or what it was.

Rather you than me.

We don't know where we are,

what period in time.

We don't know what might be out there.

The scanner.

Nobody. Not a thing.

Well, something

must have made that noise

and I don't want to find out what it is.

- Can't you set the controls for home?

- Certainly.

- All set.

- Well, you got us here.

You might as well get us back.

What's the matter?

There's something wrong somewhere.

I'll try the fault locator.

K7. The fluid link section.

That's it. The fluid link.

This end has been

jarred out of position.

Some of the fluid has run out.

- Have you got a spare?
