Summary Edit

At the Cauldron Clinic in Los Angeles (2012), Doctor Cauldron is about to treat a group of people with his cure for the common cold. Among the group is Rory Williams, who befriends undercover reporter Harmony. She is investigating the fact that people leave cold-free but different. An hour later the Doctor and Amy Pond greet Rory. Amy is suspicious when Rory tells her that the cold (he didn't have) has gone and they should go home and put their feet up in front of the telly.

The Doctor points his sonic screwdriver at "Rory", who is revealed to be an alien shapeshifter! After locking the alien in the TARDIS, the Doctor and Amy break into the Clinic. In the treatment rooms, they find row after row of bodies stored in individual hibernation pods.

As the Doctor attempts to release the real Doctor Cauldron, the shapeshifting fake Cauldron arrives and pulls out a gun. While the Doctor keeps the alien busy, Amy pulls out a plug and the alien Doctor Cauldron's true form is revealed. One by one, the hibernation pods are emptied and the alien shape shifters are rounded up, returned to their ship and sent on a course by the Doctor that takes them far away from Earth. Rory however seems to have picked up a real cold from one of the patients.
