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

The Marvel comic book movie Logan (2016) has been considered by a few to be a loose remake of Doctor Who: The Doctor's Daughter (2008). In that film, Logan/Wolverwine (Hugh Jackman) learns he has daughter called Laura Kinney/X-23 (Dafne Keen) and that is a clone of himself. See more »

Goofs

When Jenny does somersaults through the laser beams, the last two beams are level horizontally and the higher beam is lower than her foot so she should have broken it. See more »

"Hello, Dad!"

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!
