Synopsis:
(Warning: Possible Spoilers)
The Doctor takes Rose home but they appear a year after they originally left by mistake.  Rose's mother has been frantic and we learn that Mickey, her boyfriend, has been questioned in the matter of Rose's disappearance several times.  A spaceship crash-lands in the Thames and the Prime Minister is nowhere to be seen.  The next in command takes over but he and his confidants are not what they seem.  The Doctor investigates the alien survivor of the crash to find that it is a super evolved pig, perhaps as a sort of joke.  The Doctor and Rose go to Downing Street and discover that the Slytheen have taken over.
Notes:
  • The continuing 'Bad Wolf' theme continues in this episode as a young boy paints "Bad Wolf" on the side of the TARDIS.
  • Rose has been gone for twelve months and not the twelve hours the Doctor originally thought.  Mickey has been investigated in Rose's "disappearance".
  • UNIT is featured in this episode, although none of the original cast are.
  • BBC reporter Andrew Marr and Matt Baker from Blue Peter appear as themselves.
