Storyline

After delivering Margaret the Slitheen to her home planet, the Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack Harkness awaken to find themselves as part of TV reality or game shows. The Doctor is in the Big Brother house; Rose is a contestant on the Weakest Link; and Captain Jack is on What Not to Wear. The only difference is that if you lose on this show, your are evidently eliminated - they take your life. The Doctor manages to escape and quickly realizes where they are: once again on Satellite 5, only this time 100 years beyond their last visit. The Doctor realizes that something has gone very wrong with Earth's development and believes something far more sinister and complex is going on when he learns the satellite is now know as Bad Wolf TV. He and Captain Jack race to find Rose but too late, he realizes that he must once again face his greatest enemy. Written by garykmcd

One of the Best Doctor Who Cliffhangers since the 70s
2 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In this extraordinary episode, The Doctor has to try and solve a huge mystery as he, Rose and Jack are all suddenly separated from each other after they are seemingly abducted from the TARDIS. To make things even more bizarre, The Doctor is suddenly a house mate in Big Brother, Rose is a contestant on The Weakest Link, and Jack is in what not to wear. Stranger still, all the hosts seem to be murderous robots.

However, when the Doctor finally finds out just where he is, he realises that the consequences of something he did at the very same place some time ago is having serious ramifications now, and the people of Earth are easy prey to one of the Doctor's deadliest enemies...one that the Doctor is determined to fight against to save Rose. Brace yourself for one of the most extraordinary cliff-hanger endings of a Doctor Who episode ever...
