The Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams drop down from the ceiling into the 24-hour newsroom on the planet Vorala and boldly announce they are there to stop an invasion. Rory, armed with Amy’s hairdryer, prevents the plug being pulled on the live broadcast while the Doctor wrestles with security. With a sudden rise in ratings the Doctor finds himself being interviewed. When they break for the weather, the Doctor’s suspicions are confirmed – the protected weather map is wrong and not a weather map at all but a hypnotic pattern being projected to every home around the planet. Using his sonic screwdriver the Doctor disrupts the perception filter that is disguising the weather man, who is actually a neighbouring enemy of the people of Vorala – the Blehurg. The Blehurg were close to hypnotising the whole planet before enslaving them and taking over.
