In this episode, the Doctor (Ncuti Gatwa) and their companion, Ruby (Millie Gibson), find themselves in a perilous situation on the planet Kastarion 3. The Doctor becomes trapped on a landmine, unable to move without setting off a deadly explosion. With time ticking and the pressure mounting, the Doctor must find a way to save themselves, Ruby, and potentially the entire planet from disaster. It’s a race against time, and with the Doctor’s mobility restricted, Ruby takes centre stage in an attempt to defuse the tense situation.
