The Doctor is in trouble! No sooner has he dropped his friends Nick and Rob off for some solo adventuring, than the TARDIS lands him on the spaceship of ailing pilot Edward Bradley. The problem is, Ed can't even keep a date with his girlfriend Jenny, let alone avoid the hideous space faring organism that's suffocating his ship!

The Doctors problems mount when he discovers that the ruthless Space Merchant Uxan-rani-us Hol-toy-toy Mal-phas-ius Gak-ra-throne Gemini the four-hundred and sixteenth Beep (Uxan, to friends and aquaintences) is also nearby. And he's given Edward Bradley the time it takes to say his name again to clear the spaceways... or be blown out of the sky.

Can the Doctor help his new friend Ed avoid death? What lies at the root of the strange tree in space? And why is Uxan so interested in a mysterious creature the rest of the Universe has long since forgotten?
