- During Donna's wedding reception, a group of Santa roboforms appear outside with one holding a remote control for killer Christmas trees inside. The shiny red baubles on the trees float into the air, then start whizzing around the room and exploding. At least one guest is injured by the bauble bombs.
- The roboforms enter the reception hall and the Doctor uses his sonic screwdriver on the stereo system. The amplifiers release powerful sonic waves that cause the robots to fall apart.

This episode takes place in New York 1930 and re-introduces the Cult of Skaro, four Daleks who previously appeared in the Series 2 finale "Army of Ghosts/Doomsday".
- The Empire State Building is still under construction and it seems that the Daleks have taken over the operation.

The worker is never seen again and it is speculated that he was turned into a pig slave himself.
- The Doctor finds a mysterious organic object down in the New York sewers that resembles a jellyfish. The thing was alive until recently, and after analysing it with a makeshift scanner, the Doctor recognises its planet of origin as Skaro, the Daleks' home planet.

He wore a welding helmet to keep his eyes from shining all the time. He also transferred his powers to Dev Ashton. Even when possessed, Korwin recognised his wife, but claimed, "It's all her fault". Hal was temporarily stopped when the contents of a coolant vent were poured on him. However, the bit of Torajii left in him got strong enough to repossess him as the ship got closer to the main star. Regaining consciousness, he disabled the med centre power, where the Doctor was trying to freeze Torajii out of him before being completely possessed by it. Kath had tried to reactivate the power, but was forced to lure him to an airlock and eject both of them into space to save the others. They flew into space in each other's arms.

Having recovered the TARDIS key, Sally and Larry open the box and activate it, sending it back to 1969 where the Doctor is stranded. When the TARDIS vanishes, the Angels that were surrounding it are looking at each other. Since the Angels are quantum locked and turn to stone when they are seen by a living creature, looking at each other leaves them frozen forever.
