The Doctor offers Eldrad a way to get back home instead of causing havoc on Earth. While she accepts, the Doctor still does not trust her. Without explanation, the TARDIS suddenly becomes able to go where the Doctor wants it to go on the first try with this story. With few exceptions, the TARDIS will always arrive close to the desired destination from then on, unless outside forces intervene.
