Doctor WhoThe Doctor drags Bill and Nardole along to respond to a distress call which leads the TARDIS to a commercial space station. Devoid of oxygen, the station is only momentarily made safe by air from the TARDIS, and the time travelers encounter but the first of several dead bodies in space suits. The station was staffed by employees of Ganymede Systems, which pays its workers in limited amounts of oxygen; those who don’t put in a full day’s work won’t have full lungs. The Doctor, Bill and Nardole soon find themselves relying on the same pay-per-breath spacesuits as those worn by the corpses, and discover that there are living survivors aboard the station. Trapped with a handful of very suspicious people fighting for their survival, the Doctor and his friends walk a fine line between being seen as helpful and being the next targets. The dead are still moving, turning anyone they touch into the same space-suited zombies…and one of the time travelers may have to be sacrificed to them if the rest are to survive.
