It is George Baldwin's last day at work in a top secret vault of UFO files. As he files away his last report before retiring, the Tenth Doctor bursts in. Flashing his UNIT Priority One, he announces he needs access to a file before the imminent arrival of a squad of Chukwa Fel Interrogators.
After years of filing reports away, George sees real aliens arrive in a teleport bubble. The Doctor and George make a hasty retreat to the lower vaults, thirty years of documents filed in George's ultra secure hexi-trexi-decimal filing system. The treble-deadlock seal on the door doesn't hold for long as the Chukwa Fel Interrogators blast their way through.
However, the Doctor is specific in his search: Bromley Common landing, 1969. George identifies it as AEHA318L and quickly finds it. He hands it over to the Doctor to make some amendments while George stalls the aliens. The Doctor sneaks the file to George, who duly hands it over to the Interrogators. It contains the information the Interrogators need to complete their new weapon and destoy their Mohini enemy forever (even though Earth would be caught up in the crossfire). Having collected the file, they teleport away but the Doctor promises George he'll still see his first spaceship and takes him aboard the TARDIS.
Following the Doctor's amendments to the file, they watch the Interrogators activate what they think is a Solar Obliterator. It is really an Inverted Space Warp Catapult. Activated, the whole Interrogator fleet is swallowed by a wormhole that takes them to the other side of the galaxy. George gets a lift home to his waiting wife, content that he has earned his retirement.
