the Doctor had escaped the justice of the Time Lords?
"They want to punish me for being me!"
All the Doctor has to do to avoid being caught by the Time Lords is work in a supermarket and go to the pub. It's a cunning plan - certainly far less dangerous than fighting the dreaded Quarks and all those other alien fiends.
But just when everything seemed mundane and safe, alien transmissions, exploding poison gas, Princess Anne and wobbly trolleys burst onto the scene to ruin everything. It's a crisis! A fiendish alien plot! And the Doctor must use all the resources at her disposal to defeat it. She'll probably need to have a large vodka first, though.

This is a certainly a story that gets a lot of flack. While it does have it's flaws, it has some great moments, and when Arabella Weir gets to the heart of The Doctor's character, she pulls it off with aplomb.
While The Doctor and a her friends are heavy drinkers, the hangovers and vomiting that accompany it are more than what was necessary, they could have been toned down while still getting the idea across.
A shout out goes to Toby Longworth and David Tennant for their excellent portrayal of timelords in this story.
On the whole, this is a story with a wonderful conceit (The Doctor being so terrifying that he flees from his trial and hides on earth), a strong lead actress with a role that shines despite some weaker material, this story should at least be listened to once, and not completely avoided.

The doctor is a drunk women. Funny at times but to much burping and throwing up.
