- When a London hospital is teleported to the Moon, trainee doctor Martha Jones thinks things couldn't get worse. But the air's running out, and aliens that look like rhinos are checking if everyone's human! As far as Martha's concerned, the key to solving the madness seems to be a patient — a strange man who calls himself "the Doctor"...
- "How can a man so young have eyes so old?!"
- Whisked off to London in 1599, Martha and the Doctor meet William Shakespeare! The Doctor's surprised to hear of a new play Love's Labour's Won, because it doesn't exist! Investigating further, he and Martha discover three hideous aliens intent on controlling Shakespeare, hoping his words can open a portal to where millions of their kind are trapped!
