Doctor Who Series 4 Episodes #12-13

The first episode is “The Stolen Earth”. Earth is not where it should be. The people of Earth, including Donna’s Family, Martha, Torchwood, and Sarah Jane, are worried. Oh, and Rose shows up. The Doctor is concerned too, so he takes Donna to the Shadow Proclamation – essentially an interstellar police force. It turns out that Earth is not the only planet missing – there are twenty-seven other planets, moons, etc. missing. Donna remembers how bees were missing last time they were on Earth, and the Doctor tracks the missing planets to a rift. Meanwhile, the Daleks are attacking Earth. They destroy the air-craft ship the Valiant and attack UNIT. It turns out that one Dalek managed to get into the Time Lock where the Time War was being fought and saved the Dalek’s creator Daveros, but at the cost of his sanity. Jack hides in a Torchwood underground bunker with two of his companions. Sarah Jane hides at home with her son. Martha escapes UNIT using transporter technology, and Rose finds Donna’s mother and Wilfred. Former prime minister Harriet Jones contacts them on a hidden channel. They use the channel to contact the Doctor, Sara Jane’s super computer providing the power and Torchwood opening the temporal rift we’ve seen before in London. The Daleks find and kill Harriet Jones, but not before the Doctor gets their signal. Davros traces the signal and has the Daleks attack Torchwood, but not before Jack leaves to find the Doctor. Davros also taunts the Doctor, but that doesn’t stop the Time Lord. The Tardis lands on Earth and Rose rushes to meet the Doctor, but he is shot by a Dalek who is in turn shot by Jack. They get the Doctor inside the Tardis where he begins to regenerate . . .

The second episode is “Journey’s End”. The Doctor manages to channel his regeneration energy into his hand. The Tardis is captured and brought to the Dalek flagship. The Doctor, Rose, and Jack leave the Tardis, but Donna is locked in. Donna touches the jar the hand is in and part of the energy goes into her. When she wakes up, there is another 10th Doctor . . . Jack is shot. Too bad the Daleks don’t know that Jack doesn’t die that easily. He meets up with Jackie and Mickey who have come after Rose and who have already linked up with Sarah Jane. They elude the Daleks and Jack makes some sort of bomb. Back at Torchwood, Jack’s friends hold of the Daleks until a time lock is activated which keeps them safe for the moment. Meanwhile, Martha is at an underground UNIT bunker and contacts three others . . . Rose and the Doctor are captured by the Daleks and brought before Daveros. The Daleks have invented a reality bomb which has the potential to destroy everything. It involves twenty-seven worlds being in perfect alignment. They test it. Then both Jack and his group and Martha call in threatening various sorts of bombs that can disrupt the plan. Too bad the Daleks telaport them to the main room in the flagship with the Doctor. That is when the Tardis appears again. The second Doctor and Donna come out. Daveros blasts them, but that activates the Time Lord knowledge that is now in Donna. She disables the reality bomb, the Daleks, and the Daveros. The two Doctors help her send all the planets back to where they should be. Before they can get Earth back, though, Daveros destroys the machine. It turns out that the crazy Dalek did foresee this, but was so horrified by what the Daleks have done that he decided to allow it. The first Doctor offers to save Daveros, but he refuses. The Doctor destroys the Dalek ships (knowing what they are capable of still) and the Tardis pulls Earth back to where it belongs with the help of Sarah Jane’s supercomputer and the rift in London. The Doctor drops Sarah-Jane off, and Mickey decides to go off with Jack and Martha. The Doctor takes Rose and Jackie back to the alternate dimension and leaves the second Doctor with them. By this time, Donna is becoming overwhelmed by Time Lord knowledge. The Doctor is forced to wipe him from her mind. He returns her to her home, where he warns her mother and Wilfred that she must never remember him.
