With almost everyone on Earth now recast in his image, The Master controls the world. He's shocked however when he realizes that one person hasn't changed. The Doctor soon realizes that the Time Lords are trying to return and re-establish Gallifrey. If they succeed, it is the end of time and the Doctor as we currently know him. Realizing that the Ood's prophecy will come true, he visits friends from the recent past. Written by
