Synopsis for "The Fountains of Forever (part 1)"[]

Immediately after the end of the previous story, the Doctor picks up a cloaked signal on his sonic screwdriver and decides to check it out while Gabby goes to see Cindy. Before they part he gives Gabby's phone the ability to contact him. Cindy is cross that Gabby hasn't been spending quality time with her. Then Gabby tells her what she's been up to and Cindy fears that she is mentally ill. The Doctor sings a song, nearly gets run over by a cab and uses his psychic paper to enter the Ebonite Auction Room, which is hidden in the Rockefeller Center. One of the alien artefacts in the catalogue, lot 28, is potentially dangerous. A gallerina tells the Doctor that it's already been purchased. The Doctor teams up with a mysterious dreadlocked woman called Cleo, who also wants the artefact. They track it to the apartment occupied by Dorothy Bell, a dying movie star, and her assistant Vivian. Cleo grabs the device and uses to it turn Vivian into a baby and the Doctor into his previous regeneration.
