The Doctor and Donna arrive in the 51st century at a planet-sized book repository simply called “The Library”, summoned by an anonymous request for help on the Doctor’s psychic paper. However, they find it completely devoid of humanoid life, and the Library’s computers even claim as such, though when the Doctor widens the search for non-humanoid life, the Library’s computers claim over “a million million lifeforms” exist.

Meanwhile, the little girl watches both the Doctor and Donna by switching channels on her television.
