DRAMA Trapped in a futuristic medical facility aster an adventure goes wrong, the Doctor is on the back foot, struggling with injuries as her friends and fellow patients come under attack from mysterious forces. Happily, after a few stories set on Earth, this week adds some proper science-fiction ideas, introducing a universe of gleaming spaceships and outer-space cultures (a highlight comes when the gang meet a pregnant male alien), and even slipping in a physics lesson about antimatter.

It's fast-paced, explosive fun - and probablt the most unusual hospital drama you'll catch on TV this week.
