Summary[edit | edit source]
The morris dancers carrying the wren suddenly collapse with seizures. When other dancers take their place, they too collapse. Isiah, an electrical engineer, believes that the wren is actually a meteorite. When he touches it, he too feels strange.
The Doctor and Isiah take the "wren" to Isiah's workshop while Jamie and Victoria gather information from the locals. The Doctor thinks the wren is an alien artefact that is running low on power and trying to draw it from the morris dancers.
Victoria accidentally lets slip to the locals that the Doctor and Isiah have the wren, and she and Jamie have to rush to Isiah's place to warn them that the villagers are on their way. The Doctor and Isiah free the artefact, and the villagers arrive just in time to see it get sent "to heaven".
