The Governor has the responsibility of running the Prison but for him, it is important to treat the prisoners in a humane way even if they are the worst criminals on his planet. Escape is impossible since the prison is located on an asteroid and yet one of the latest arrivals tries to escape.

The Governor tries to understand the reason for such meaningless behavior even when it is the most dangerous criminal of that space quadrant who puts it into action. When he interrogates him, Prisoner 428 tells him that he wants to help him and that many people will die if the Governor doesn’t listen to him. What appears to be a threat leaves the Governor more perplexed than irritated, certainly less irritated than by the fact that prisoner 428 still wants to be called Doctor.

The atmosphere Donna finds is darker than she expected, mostly because of her mother.

Wilf invites the Doctor to the ceremony where the new star’s name will be officially announced but some oddities worry the Doctor. A decidedly out-of-the-ordinary star can only bring trouble, and what’s the goal of people who, in various parts of the world, are working for a mysterious force?
