The Brigadier is sporting a fancy kilt. Once he and the Doctor are done making fun of each other, they get down to business: UNIT are investigating a series of attacks on North Sea oil rigs from a temporary base in the Scottish village of Tulloch.

The Zygons can imitate the form of other life-forms whom they have imprisoned on their ship, and are currently impersonating many of the village locals in order to infiltrate the UNIT base.

* {{Foreshadowing}}/CerebusRetcon: In "Day of the Doctor" it is revealed that the destruction of the Zygons's homeworld mentioned in this episode was in fact an extremely early impact of the Time War on the Doctor's own adventures.
