-->'''Josiah Smith''': The British Empire's an anarchic mess. There's no clear directive from the throne, no discipline. Result? Confusion, wastage. I can provide a new order. Wealth, prosperity...

* WhatTheHellHero: Ace was horribly traumatised by the creepy atmosphere of the mansion in her own time, so the Doctor decides to take her back to find out what happened ''without informing her beforehand''. She is obviously somewhat upset about this.

Still with us? As the story unfolds at a breakneck pace, it's soon revealed that the disturbingly creepy house might be haunted. Only it's not. It's the base for an alien surveillance force full of animated alien insectoid husks, the leader of which (Josiah himself) wishes to integrate themselves with the human race. In his opinion, that's best done by having Fenn-Cooper assassinate Queen Victoria and taking over England as its new King, as that's how evolution works in his mind.

To make a long story as short as humanly possible, the Doctor takes companion Ace back in time to the Victorian era for some form of training that involves facing her childhood fears. The TARDIS lands in a mansion of the era, and the Doctor and Ace soon find themselves the guests of a "Josiah Smith" who proudly proclaims the wonders of the Darwin concept of evolution. Ace, who has a trauma involving haunted mansions, tells the Doctor that she doesn't appreciate his lesson. Also, there is a Rev. Ernest Matthews, who despises evolution, there's a maid service that refuses to stay in the house after 6pm... and a polite, well-dressed Neanderthal butler named Nimrod. The maid service is apparently also taking care of GreatWhiteHunter named Redvers Fenn-Cooper, who has recently lost his mind by "[[GoMadFromTheRevelation seeing something he cannot comprehend]]". And there's a sinister housekeeper, and Josiah's niece who isn't entirely uncreepy herself. Ace decides to crossdress for the occasion (mainly because her modern clothes including VaporWear cause people to call her a shameless trollop).

* DevloutionDevice: Rev. Matthews is turned into a monkey by a Light; it is justified, however, by suggesting that this is not "de-evolution" as such, because the alien could have turned him into anything and only chose the monkey form to mock the clergyman's anti-Darwinist beliefs. (Another character, for instance, is transformed into stone instead.)
