This is a complicated story featuring the Ux, psychotropics waves, neural balancers, sniper bots, miniaturised planets and the return of Tzim-Sha. The latter has been marooned for 3407 years and has been using the Ux to get revenge on those planets that stood in his way. The team have arrived in time to defeat him and save the Earth. Overall a good story with lots to keep track of.

One story line revolves around Graham's promise to kill Tzim-Sha to avenge Grace's death. The Doctor warns him that he can no longer travel with her if he does so. In the end he relents and imprisons Tzim-Sha for eternity - which is some ways seems more cruel. Graham worries he has been weak while the Doctor says he's one of the strongest people she knows. This feels a little over the top.
