The family went to stay at Mrs Hutchings' guest house in what they thought was 1933. An alien posing as a guest, Mr Prentice, had placed the guest house in a kind of stasis so it would always be 1933 in Keelmouth. It affected the guests, too; they thought it was 1933. When the family arrived, some of the other guests were offended because Jeff's wife was Pakistani. The First Doctor tried to make them feel welcome, as did the Major.
When Jeff stated his occupation, Ujwala remarked that she was a brain surgeon, but then she realised that wasn't right and said she stayed at home with Craig.
