Surprised by the Galapogans' success in the games, he decides to take a closer look, suspecting something isn't quite right. "Invading" the pitch to meet the team, and persuading them to pose for a photo the Doctor uses his sonic screwdriver to perform a scan and discovers the Galapogans' muscles have been enhanced with the illegal drug mediphosphide. The secret of their games success revealed, they try to stop the Doctor and Rory exposing them but Amy manages to alert the Trials Task Force. The authorities arrive in time to save the Doctor and Rory, and the Galapogan team is arrested and disqualified.
