Downing Street announces mankind's first Interplanetary War. But the real danger is much closer to home. The Doctor, Rose and Harriet Jones race against time to unmask the villainous Slitheen, but only Rose's mum and boyfriend hold the key to salvation. Can the missiles be stopped?

The sale of the century. We reduce the Earth to molten slag, then sell it piece by piece.
