Synopsis

In the first of four specials shot in HD, the Doctor is trapped on a desert alien planet with a red double-decker bus but no Tardis.

Michelle Ryan and comic Lee Evans team up with David Tennant for the first Time Lord adventure shot in High Definition.

Ryan plays the mysterious Lady Christina de Souza, who joins the Doctor on a bus-trip which takes a very unexpected detour into danger, while British comedy star Lee Evans also joins the cast playing a character called Malcolm whose life becomes connected to the Doctor’s under extraordinary circumstances...

When a London bus travels through a worm-hole to an alien world, the Doctor must join forces with the extraordinary Lady Christina to help the unfortunate passengers, and themselves, get back home.

But the mysterious planet holds terrifying secrets hidden in the sand, and time is running out, as the deadly Swarm gets closer...
