“Further than we’ve ever gone before” Continue reading

Headmaster Finch walks the staircases and corridors of his school, before approaching his office only to find a young girl sitting outside. She explains that she is ill with a headache and Matron has sent her to see him. He asks why she cannot just go home and she explains she lives in Ambrose Hall, the local orphanage. He sympathises and ushers her inside his office. It’s nearly time for lunch. As he closes the door he takes a peek back outside before closing it completely. The shadows through the frosted glass window shift and change, as the girl lets out a scream.

Elsewhere in the schoolchildren are rushing to lessons at the sound of the bell. Some of them pile into a science lab, followed by their teacher. He walks to his desk and sets down his bag before greeting his students. It’s the Doctor. Continue reading

In the court of Versailles the dignitary of France are running for their lives. Chased by an unseen pursuer the masked entourage tear down the corridors of the palace. In one of the rooms of the court King Louis XV is warning his mistress Madame de Pompadour that they are under attack by inhuman creatures that can’t be stopped.

Madame de Pompadour however is more concerned with the clock on the mantle, which stands with its face cracked. She states that the clock is broken, he is coming. Louis rants in disbelief but she turns to him, and tells him that a man is coming to Versailles, a man who has watched over her her entire life and he will not let her down now. Louis asks exactly who this man is and she explains that he is the only other man apart from him she has ever loved. He glares at her but she stops him before he can speak. She tells him to go to his queen and then turns to the fireplace below the mantle, staring into the flames.

She calls out, asking if the man is there and if he is listening. She explains the clock is broken; it is time. He promised. She calls out to him again. She calls out to the Doctor…

In a laboratory in a place unknown, a blinding light silhouettes a robotic figure amongst the pieces of machinery. A scientist working in the lab informs his superior that ‘it’ is working. The other man, seated in the shadows, explains that that is not the correct terminology. He moves forward on a large motorised wheel chair and tells him: this is not a machine. The scientist corrects himself. It’s alive.

The man in the chair asks if the creature can hear him. The scientist explains that it may be in a state of shock; the brain has been welded to the exoskeleton. The seated man marvels at his new creation: skin of metal, and a body that will never age. He envies it. He turns to face it and asks if it knows him. He orders it to answer and asks again. Slowly the creature answers, he is John Lumic. Lumic marvels at what stands before him, his child. It is ready, he tells his friend Dr Kendrick to mark this day, that are blessed.

Yet Kendrick explains this is a new form of life and they must inform Geneva of it’s existence, it contravenes the Bio-Convention. They must ratify it. However Lumic knows they will never allow this creature life, and decides he shall not apply to ratification. Kendrick apologises but it is his duty to inform them. Lumic stares at him and asks how he shall do that from beyond the grave. Kendrick does not understand, but it is too late to escapes. The hazy shape of the creature has crept up behind him and on Lumic’s orders it reaches for Kendrick’s neck, electrocuting him. He writhes in agony and falls to the ground.

Lumic turns away and activates a communication link. He calls for his captain to contact all staff and explain they have a new destination. “Set sail for Great Britain.” Continue reading

As the Cybermen prepare to attack the Doctor pulls a glowing orb from his pocket. He aims it at the steel warriors and immediately a beam of energy flies out at them. They are each hit by the beam and begin to disintegrate. The group of hostages begin to run and are saved by Mrs Moore, in the blue van belonging to the Preachers.

They begin to climb inside but Pete makes a break for the house. The Doctor stops him but he protests that he must save Jackie. He reasons that anyone inside the house will be dead, and all he can do is to not let her die in vein. He runs back to the van and the Doctor joins him, stopping only to pull Rose away from the house, reminding her that the Jackie in this universe is not her mother. They join the others inside the van and they pull away, Mrs Moore screeching that she’s never seen such a slow getaway in her life. Continue reading

24 December on the Powell estate: Jackie Tyler is decorating a small, white Christmas tree and pining over her missing daughter, while Mickey Smith works at a garage just around the corner. Suddenly, both hear the familiar sound of the TARDIS materialising, and they rush out into the courtyard just as the TARDIS pops into existence in mid-air, careens wildly off the buildings, and skids to a halt on the corner. A strange man staggers out of the ship, giddily wishes Jackie and Mickey a merry Christmas, and faints. A moment later, Rose emerges from the TARDIS and tells the startled Jackie and Mickey that the strange man is the Doctor…

At the beginning of the episode—which immediately follows the episode “Turn Left”—the Earth is teleported out of its spatial location shortly after the Doctor and his companion Donna Noble arrive to investigate Rose Tyler’s warning. The Doctor contacts the Shadow Proclamation, a universal police force, to find Earth. They determine that twenty-seven missing planets—including Earth, Adipose III, Pyrovillia, the Lost Moon of Poosh—reorganise when placed near each other. Donna mentions the disappearance of bees on contemporary Earth; this allows the Doctor to trace the planets to the Medusa Cascade, an interuniversal rift.
