One day, her mother fell ill, so Rose had to go to her grandmother's cottage on her own. While walking through the woods, she briefly met the Ninth Doctor, who she believed to be a woodcutter. As she continued through the woods, she realised she was being followed. She saw a Zygon behind her and ran until she reached her grandmother's cottage.
Rose had tea with her grandmother, but noticed she was acting strangely. She went down into the cellar and found her real grandmother in a body-print machine. The Zygon came down the stairs towards her, but she got around it and went back up, where she found the Doctor. The Zygon followed her, and the Doctor shoved it down the stairs.
