The Rani forces the TARDIS to crash land on an alien planet, and a gentle knock on the head results in the Doctor's sudden regeneration into his 7th life (Sylvester McCoy). Suffering from post-regeneration confusion and brainwashing, the Doctor is lured into the Rani's evil scheme to solve the secret of manipulating Strange Matter. A new season for Doctor Who features new, splashier special effects, but the same gravel quarries.
