The Doctor finally gets her companions home a mere half-an-hour after they left. We're introduced to some more of Yaz's domestic life and discover the companions are close neighbours. In the midst of all this there are weird goings on that suggest danger. In the heart of the trouble is an unscrupulous mogul, Jack Robertson, played by Chris Noth whose companies have inadvertently caused the problem. At first it looks like giant spiders on a rampage, but in the end they're just confused and the deaths are not malicious as such. The Doctor manages to resolve the problem as usual with typical empathy for the spiders. Overall, it wasn't a bad story, but I could have done without the horror. The stories should be better than this.
