Independently of one another, the Doctor and Donna Noble are investigating Adipose Industries who claim to have created a revolutionary diet pill. The head of Adipose, Miss Foster, runs a pretty tight ship and they have been quite successful. Donna visits several people who have taken the pills and as advertised, the pills seem to be working. Except of course for the person that virtually vanishes, excerpt for a strange little creature in the bathroom sink. The Doctor and Donna join up eventually and come to the realization that there is definitely something alien behind what is going on. Written by
Did You Know?
In the close-up views of Miss Foster, while she is giving her promotional talk on the Adipose diet pill, only the letters D-U-S-T from the word "industries" are visible on the screen behind her, the rest of the word is outside the frame. This may be a deliberate reference to Little Britain
(2003), in which Matt Lucas
portrays (amongst other characters) Marjorie Dawes: a 'Fat Fighters' group leader who has the word "dust" as one of her catchphrases. See more
When Miss Foster uses her sonic device on the window-washer's crane, she points it at the right-side cable, but it's the left-side cable that breaks. See more
[after the Doctor pulls her in
I was right, it's always like for you!
Oh yes! And off we go!
[both smiling, run out of the room
[struggling in the chair
[poking his head in the doorway
[uses his screwdriver to break her ropes; disappears from sight as she tries to get them off
[pokes his head in again
Oh, and do yourself a favor; get out.
