The pace hots up as the Doctor and her new pals compete in a rally across the universe…
The Doctor and her friends are marooned on a deserted planet when they end up being chased across a hot and sandy wilderness by a horde of terrifying creatures!
This week’s episode begins with the gang meeting Epzo (Shaun Dooley) and Angstrom (Susan Lynch), the last two competitors in the prestigious Twelve Galaxies Space Rally.
The Doctor is convinced that if she, Graham, Ryan and Yasmin can make it to the finishing line, the TARDIS will be there for them. ‘Graham is adjusting to life in space,’ says The Chase host Bradley Walsh, who plays Graham. ‘He has no idea what’s going on, but he wants to be there for his step-grandson Ryan.’
After the death of Graham’s wife Grace in last week’s opener, Ryan and Graham want to honour her memory by helping the Doctor, yet rally organiser Ilin
(Art Malik) has a sinister warning.
Ilin advises them not to drink the water or travel at night, and when they fail to reach the mountains before the sun goes down, they find themselves in real danger.
‘We filmed this episode in South Africa,’ says Bradley. ‘It was boiling and I had to wear a leather jacket in the heat for the whole episode!’
