The one where the Doctor gets stuck with a coat rack. Tegan wants to see something of humanity's future. So when the Doctor takes the TARDIS to Frontios, where sometime in the distant future the last remnants of humanity huddle together under semi-primitive conditions and occasionally get devoured by the ground or squashed by meteor showers, she insists on going out and checking up on them.
