Investigating the air conditioning following a mysterious shaking in the space station, the Doctor finds one of the spiders. With the help of Jabe, the Doctor sends the spider back to its masters. The Doctor realises the Adherents of the Repeated Meme is just a meme, an idea, or in other words remote controlled robots. The actual culprit was Cassandra. She intended to create a hostage situation. She teleports away, causing her spiders, having infiltrated the station deep, to break the safety and the glass on the station's exterior to break.

The Doctor and Jabe rush to find the button to reset the computer, restoring the safety; the space station was manned entirely by computers, computers the spiders compromised, and the makers of the "unsinkable" space station didn't account for this. Jabe holds down the switch to slow the deadly pathway of fans so the Doctor can reach it. Unfortunately, she's made of wood, so she catches fire and dies, and the fans start moving quicker just as the Doctor's at the last one. The Doctor, concentrating, passes through and resets the computer, ordering it to reactivate the shields at the point of the Earth's destruction. Cassandra is returned thanks to the Doctor's ability to reverse the teleport with the feed that allowed her to teleport through the heat. As she begins to dry out, she pleads The Doctor to "moisturize her", but he lets her die, saying "Everything has an end."

* NoOSHACompliance: There are [[DeadlyRotaryFan giant spinning fans]] blocking the way to the reset-the-computer button. There is a switch to slow the fans down but it will cause all the heat to move past the person holding the switch.

* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: It's strongly implied here, and shown in "New Earth", that humanity and its descendants still resemble humans, and that Cassandra only looks how she does through plastic surgery. Later episodes do nod to this by suggesting that humanity develops the ability to 'experiment' with different forms, but tends to return to the 'classic' template.

Later, when Cassandra is caught by The Doctor, he angrily states people have died. Cassandra just blithely shoots back "that depends how you mean people".

** When Rose tries to make sense of her culture shock by talking about how everyone on the platform is so alien, the Doctor makes a slightly snide and insensitive crack about how they're "lucky I didn't take you to the Deep South". After the conversation has progressed to the TARDIS's TranslationConvention, Rose reacts poorly to learning that the Doctor's machine gets inside her head and changes how it works, and that the Doctor didn't mention this. When the Doctor admits that he hadn't really considered it, Rose angrily fires back that he was "too busy making cheap shots about the Deep South".
