The Doctor, Martha, and Jack manage to escape from Futurekind in the year 100 trillion through Jack’s repaired Vortex Manipulator, finding themselves in London. They quickly learn that The Master has taken on the persona of “Mr. Harold Saxon”, the newly elected Prime Minister, using his Archangel phone network to subliminally influence the population into voting for him while masking his presence from the Doctor.
The three narrowly avoid a bomb placed in Martha’s flat, and the arrest of Martha’s family, before The Master contacts them to gloat about his seeming victory.
