Special double feature due to the lengths of the stories - ends at 7PM. The 7th Doctor and Mel land at a toll booth, where they win a free vacation to 1959 Disneyland. Disneyland being, of course, in Wales, or at least the bus thinks so when it crashes there. But a mildly unpleasant villain wants to kill one of the fellow vacationers, forcing the Doctor and Mel to protect her. Afterwards, the Doctor and Mel arrive at Iceworld, a holiday tourist attraction that believes in cold comfort'. While there, they reunite with Sabalom Glitz, the friendly crook, and encounter Ace, a 16 year old who has absolutely no reason to be there. Oh, and there's a buried treasure and a secret worth killing for, to keep people interested.
