A spaceship was trapped between real space and the time vortex due to engine trouble. It was piloted by members of a species that was telepathically linked to it. The interior of the ship was lit by a dim red glow, and had chambers like a darkened pyramid. It appeared to have organic components.
After the ship was trapped, the crew members died. The ship attempted to keep going on its own with an emergency program. The release of energy caused the deaths of Sebastian Marten, Paul Steiffers and Bart Faversham in Lord Farthingale's country retreat on Earth in 1920. The Ninth Doctor contacted the ship in the standard galactic code of the 455th century, and he and Rose were teleported on board. The Doctor repaired the ship, saving the remaining house guests that were being effected by ship. (PROSE: Doctor vs Doctor)
