The TARDIS as seen before seems to display a mind of Its own and whisks the Doctor, Donna and the Time Lords former companion Martha Jones to the planet Messaline, a world where a savage war is being fought between humans and a race of fish like creatures called the Hath. In the ensuring confusion of their arrival, Martha is abducted by the Hath. Rescuing Martha becomes the Doctor and Donna's main priority as well as attempting to put a stop to the ugly war that has consumed the planet. But that would have been complicated enough had it not been for the fact that the Doctor had suddenly been made a father again. Written by
Georgia Moffett, daughter of the Fifth Doctor Peter Davison, plays the Doctor's Daughter (actually a clone created from his DNA). While filming she met David Tennant who was then the Tenth Doctor. The following year they started dating. In 2010 she fell pregnant, giving birth to a daughter Olive in March 2011. She and Tennant married in December 2011. So, in truth, the Doctor's Daughter is the Doctor's daughter, had the Doctor's Daughter, and had the Doctor's Granddaughter. See more »
Unless the generated soldiers age at an extremely accelerated rate (or are created old, which is somewhat illogical, as they're supposed to fight), General Cobb should know all about the fighting and what the Source is, not to mention how everything works, what the numbers mean, and so on.

...where to find the Source.
Ooh, the Source. What's that then; what's the Source? I like a Source. What is it?
The Breath of Life.
And that would be?
"In the beginning, the Great One breathed life into the universe. And then she looked at what she'd done, and she sighed."
Hmm, 'She'; I like that.

Of course the Doctor's daughter is something everyone looked forward to! I mean it's his daughter!!!!! But, this episode was slightly disappointing. The acting was so-so, and the plot was very fast paced! So it did keep my attention. But for some reason the episode didn't give me everything I wanted. You sort of know how it's gonna end at the beginning, but don't jump to conclusions! There are a few twists in the story to keep things interesting. But somehow this story fell a little flat. Maybe it was the way the writers tried to bring the daughter in so quickly and not really give us any reason to like her. Or perhaps the ending that makes you think: "wait...what? so....what?" Or maybe it's just creepy if you know that Tennant and the Dr's daughter are real life husband and wife. Or were at some time. Anyway, high hopes for next week, when it comes to story!
