Opening narration box[]

Travelling alone through time and space was taking its toll on the Doctor, so it was time for a well-earned holiday...

Summary[]

The Doctor's sunshine break on the Earth colony holiday world of Centuria is interrupted by the arrival of Cybermen rounding up the tourists for conversion. Captured and taken off in a truck, the Doctor teams up with Jayne Kadett, an undercover investigator on the trail of an interplanetary info-thief.

The thief stole Torchwood files and built his own Cyber army, intending to sell the hi-tech soldiers to the highest bidder, but the Cybermen took control and partly converted the thief, using him as their driver.

When they arrive at the conversion factory, the Doctor and Jayne escape by using the Doctor's sonic screwdriver to overload the Cybermen in the immediate vicinity, and they make their way to the main power line. The thief had also stolen the power supply by tapping into the local nuclear grid. The Doctor blows the restraint circuit and the power feeds out to the Cybermen. The overload destroys them and creates a huge explosion, but before the Cybermen shut down, one sends a message to others. The Doctor is determined to track them down, stop what they're up to and destroy them all.
