The only way to save the ship is to pass through a security system, which the crew inconveniently programmed while they were drunk, and decided that it would be a good idea to make it a series of obscure trivia questions. It's like the Pub Quiz from Hell. Martha phones her mum, her own VoiceWithAnInternetConnection, and gets some answers . . . unaware that Mrs Jones' phone is being tapped by the mysterious people from [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E6TheLazarusExperiment "The Lazarus Experiment"]], the ones with sinister music cues; they are revealed to be government agents working for Mr. Saxon.

** The Doctor tells Martha to freeze him to free him from the sun's influence. It doesn't work because the possessed Korwin shuts down the power to the stasis pod.

The only way to save the ship is to pass through a security system, which the crew inconveniently programmed while they were drunk, and decided that it would be a good idea to make it a series of obscure trivia questions. It's like the Pub Quiz from Hell. Martha phones her mum, her own VoiceWithAnInternetConnection, and gets some answers... unaware that Mrs. Jones' phone is being tapped by the mysterious people from [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E6TheLazarusExperiment "The Lazarus Experiment"]], the ones with sinister music cues; they are revealed to be government agents working for Mr. Saxon.

Before Martha and the other guy make it to the finish, though, another crew member gets infected with the mysterious burning illness and corners Martha and another crew member in an escape pod. The Doctor confronts the infected crew member who passes him by and leaves the area. The Doctor rushes to the escape pod controls but it is too late, the escape pod has already been released. Martha and the crewman are falling into the sun, and the escape pod retrieval controls are on the outside of the ship... Fat lot of good they'll do there.
