Storyline

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 Robert McElwaine

Trivia

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 »

Average episode with strong performances from Tennant and Tate
11 May 2008 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"The Doctor's Daughter" is a fast paced episode with the title explained within minutes of the titles rolling.

The Doctor's daughter is played by the wonderful Georgia Moffett. Moffett's natural beauty is hardly surprising given that her parents are Peter Davison and Sandra Dickinson. She gives a great performance here and delivers her lines with zeal.

My only reservation about the episode is the level of emotional porn that is shoe-horned into the 45 minutes. Even Spielberg would blush at the audience manipulation present here. Still, despite this criticism, I cried like a baby in this tale so the makers are doing something right.

8 out of 10. The eagle eyed will recognise one of the locations out of Torchwood's "Captain Jack Harkness" episode.
