Storyline

Donna and the Doctor are having fun at a carnival on a distant planet when she is lured to a tent with the promise of having her fortune told. She inexplicably finds herself in an alternate time line, one where she's never met the Doctor and joined him on their many adventures. In fact, the Doctor has died in the Thames flooding as he was unable to regenerate himself. As a result, all of the events on Earth that they experienced together and the threats they averted now come to pass including the death of several well known people who were connected to the Doctor in one way or another. Rose, who has managed to travel from her parallel universe but doesn't reveal her true identity, assists Donna in setting everything right. Written by garykmcd

Really a Family Show?
23 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

Amazing that Doctor Who is aimed at children and families. The show can be very dark at times. And even when the plot line spins widely on a tangent (think end of season 3), the writing is always top notch. The Americans could learn a lot about creating family entertainment from studying this show.

Good, dark, thought-provoking episode, although how Rose made it back to this dimension is never really explained.

Best part of the episode is the trailer for "The Stolen Earth", which will feature everyone from recent Doctor Who mythology, including the Torchwood team, Sara Jane and Martha. Can Brig. Lethbridge-Stewart be far behind?
