The Doctor and Rose travel to the year 2012 and land in a museum of extra-terrestrial objects accumulated by the very wealthy Henry van Statten. He's an avid collector - the TARDIS lands on the museum's 53rd floor below ground level - but he's also using alien technology to develop new weapons from which he derives his large income. He's particularly proud of one device he's acquired but has not yet been able to make functional and to the Doctor's horror, it turns out to a very old and very dangerous enemy from the past.Written by
The label for the Cyberman head the Doctor and Rose see in Van Statten's museum implies it is a relic of the events of the 1968 story 'The Invasion'. However, the design of the head - in particular the prominent ribbed handlebars' and head-mounted gun - is strikingly different to those used in 'The Invasion', being much closer to the version used in the 1975 story 'Revenge of the Cybermen'.

God, that's so close. So I should be... 26.
[the Doctor flicks a switch and lights flood the area]
Blimey! It's a great big museum!
