Kate Bush's Doctor is relaxing when a random woman in red shoes comes before her dancing like a lunatic and pleads for her to perform some ancient Gallifreyan chaos magic to release her from her enchantment.
The Doctor receives the red shoes as a gift, but it soon becomes apparent that these are a quantum bio-locked perpetual motion mecha-snare devised in the Death Zone, forcing the Doctor to dance like a lunatic. The unknown woman reveals herself to be The Mattress and flees cackling into the night.
Fortunately, with the help of that white faced bloke from Kinda as well as Lily of the Sisterhood of Karn, and after a shitload of spinning around, the Kate Doctor is able to chase down the Mattress and break the spell.

The film was controversial among fans for its repeated tendency to suddenly erupt into swelling pop ballads, showcasing Bush's lesser-known singing talent. Steven Moffat has recently hinted that he may steal this for Series 11.
It was officially ranked by Cbeebies as the second most artsy Doctor Who production after The Natural History of Fear. It still occasionally gets played in public unlike anything else from Classic Who, especially the TV movie, which tells you everything you need to know.
Reconciling the Kate Doctor with established canon is only marginally easier than doing so with The End of Time.
