The Fifth Doctor and Turlough visit Brazil in 2080, decades after the Amazon has turned to desert. But not ''everyone'' in Rio is dying a slow, lingering death brought about by environmental and economic collapse. Impossibly wealthy werewolf Ileana de Santos and her invalid son are taking a luxurious private train towards their family's private compound.

When the Doctor decides to be Ileana's new protector, it leads to an AccidentalProposal and a whole lot of angry werewolves. Fortunately, Turlough is carrying Rosa's silver blade when Stubbe swallows him whole, so he's spat back out again (although just slightly traumatised). Eventually, the Doctor saves the day by simply getting Stubbe inside the TARDIS and hovering far above the Earth for a bit. Since werewolves can't live without a connection to the soil, Stubbe is made to realise that he doesn't stand a chance, and that he's an old world artifact with no place in current human society. Instead of killing Stubbe, Rosa guides his spirit into her mind and tells him to enter her spiritual forest, [[LittleRedRidingHood as long as he doesn't stray from the path]].
