I can hear the sound of empires toppling.
--The Doctor
Cquote2

The Doctor and Ace visit the planet of Terra Alpha, where unhappiness has been outlawed, and people who can't keep a smile on their face at all times have a tendency to... disappear.

Two characters from the story are particularly remembered: Helen A, the dictator, who bears a striking resemblance to Margaret Thatcher (deliberate, Word of God would later say); and the Kandy Man, a killer robot made out of candy, who bears a striking resemblance to the advertising mascot Bertie Bassett (not deliberate, but the BBC got in trouble from Bassetts all the same).
