PLANET OF THE OOD

ARRIVING ON THE SNOWBOUND OOD-SPHERE IN the year 4126, the Doctor and Donna Noble discover a fatally injured Ood who tells them, “The circle must be broken.” They follow the flight path of a rocket ship to the sprawling factory complex of the Ood Operations company; there they join a recently arrived group of buyers at a promotional reception hosted by Solana Mercurio, head of marketing and galactic liaison.

The compliant and mildly telepathic Ood are servants of humans in the 42nd century, bred by Ood Operations on the Ood-Sphere and exported in shipping containers across the three galaxies of the Second Great and Bountiful Human Empire. But something is seriously wrong at the complex: chief executive officer Halpen and Dr Ryder, the new head of Ood management, are struggling to contain a mysterious outbreak of ‘red-eye’. This mysterious contamination among the Ood turns their eyes red and makes them aggressive, resulting in three deaths in the last financial quarter. One Ood has been caught on camera using its hand-held translation globe to electrocute Dr Ryder’s predecessor. Now others are turning rabid in increasing numbers and the cargo warehouse is soon overrun with red-eyed Ood.
