Craig thinks that's just the new cabling going in, so the Doctor latches onto that as a way to get them out of harm's way. He wheels Alfie toward an elevator that's been cordoned off with a big old "DANGER!" sign, fixes it with a wave of the screwdriver and ushers the Owens men inside. Then, because he can't quite help himself, he throws his hands up in the air and admits there's more going on. They all get into the elevator as the Doctor explains someone's been using a teleporter there in the shop. Craig makes the requisite Star Trek reference. "It could be disguised as anything," the Doctor says as they stand in an elevator that looks an awful lot like a Star Trek teleporter pad.
The lights flicker and suddenly they're all standing in a darkened room. Craig, focused on the Doctor, hasn't quite noticed the change of scenery yet. When he starts to look around, the Doctor grabs him and tries to distract him with confessions of the heart. (Or hearts.) "I love you! Craig, it's always been you!" The Doctor wraps his arms around Craig's shoulders while surreptitiously sonicking their environs. "Are you going to kiss me?" Craig asks a bit weakly. "Would you like that?" the Doctor asks in his best attempt at being seductive. He puckers his lips like a fish and makes "mm-mm!" sounds. He appears to be as awkward kissing boys as he is girls. Finally, Craig protests: "Doctor, I can't! I'm taken!" Otherwise, he seems kind of game. As he tries to wrest himself from the Doctor's embrace, he gets a good look at the dungeon-like room into which they've been teleported. He screams. A Cyberman clatters toward them out of the shadows. The Doctor sonics the teleporter, zapping them back into the elevator. He says he's fused the teleporter so the Cybermen will be stuck on their ship now, at least for a while.
Craig wonders why they haven't invaded by now, if they're so evil. The Doctor hasn't figured that out yet. He tries to get him to take Alfie home, but Craig is determined to stick with him. Being with the Doctor is the safest bet, he says. "You always win!" he says. "You always survive!" The Doctor gives him a sad smile, but can't refuse him. They split up to go investigate the shop, but not before the Doctor gives Craig an affectionate hug. A saleswoman at the jewelry counter sees this and gives them a big smile. "I hope you don't mind my saying, Doctor, but you look ever so sweet with your partner and the baby." The Doctor thinks about this. "'Partner,' I like it," he says. "But is it better than 'companion?'" She thinks that sounds too old-fashioned. He eventually gets around to asking her if she's seen anything unusual around the shop lately and she mentions the "silver rat thing." Meanwhile, Craig heads off to the lingerie department to ask Shona's former coworker some questions. He unintentionally comes off like a perv, things go downhill quickly and a security guard is called over. Craig tries to beat a hasty retreat, but knocks over a stand of delicates. The Doctor comes bounding over to help. The employees, clearly enamored of the Doctor after just his short time working there, back off when he identifies Craig as his friend. A bit of talking and they find out this is where Shona disappeared.
