043 The Wheel in Space

The Doctor and Jamie are forced to evacuate the TARDIS after an explosion of the mercury fluid link. Sound familiar? They land in a deserted spaceship whose single occupant is the Servo-Robot, which menaces the intruders and manages to launch a group of mysterious white pods into space before Jamie destroys it.
