GRIDLOCK

INTENDING TO SHOW MARTHA JONES THE glittering spires of New New York, the Doctor takes his latest companion to New Earth, a planet that has become home to mankind five billion years in Martha’s future. But the TARDIS arrives 30 years after the Doctor’s previous visit and much has changed. They find themselves in the virtually deserted undercity slum of Pharmacytown, where stallholders sell mood-altering chemical patches to the few remaining residents.

Suddenly, Martha is kidnapped by a young couple, Milo and Cheen, who need an extra passenger on board their flying car in order to be granted access to the fast lane on the motorway. The Doctor learns that most of the undercity’s population has left to join the motorway in the hope of a better life in the suburbs of Brooklyn or Fire Island. But when he accesses the highway at the nearest layby, he finds a vast enclosed multi-level tunnel filled with the choking exhaust fumes of thousands of gridlocked vehicles.
