Doctor Who: The Doctor’s Daughter

Recap

When the TARDIS goes out of control, the Doctor, Donna and Martha end up on a planet where humanity is fighting against the fishlike Hath, with each side breeding troops from a machine that can turn a person’s DNA into a new individual within moments. And when the Doctor is forcibly ‘processed’ by the machine, the result is “Jenny”, a fully trained soldier made from Time Lord DNA. How will the Doctor react to this new addition to his family, not to mention deal with a war that has been raging for generations?

Doctor Who: The Poison Sky

Recap

With ATMOS spewing poisonous gas into the air all across the world, it seems that humanity might just suffocate on its own planet- but why are the Sontarans really going to such lengths? Fortunately, the Doctor is on the case, but will even the assistance of Donna be enough to combat cloned Martha, unstable genius Luke Rattigan and the sheer bullheadedness of UNIT?

On present-day Earth, ATMOS is the answer to carbon emissions, a module that makes your car emission free, and comes with free satnav.

Doctor Who: Planet of the Ood

Recap

When the TARDIS is set on random, you can end up anywhere, anytime- and as it happens, the Doctor and Donna have landed in the 42nd century, on the so-called “Ood sphere” where Ood are raised and shipped across the galaxies to serve humanity. According to those in charge, the Ood are happy to serve, but when a condition known as “Red-Eye” starts turning the docile aliens into angry killers, it may only be the first clue as to the questionable practices going on behind the scenes.

When the Doctor plans to take Donna to Ancient Rome, he manages to mess up once again, landing them in Pompeii- on volcano day.

Doctor Who: Partners in Crime

Recap

There’s a new diet revolution in Britain; forget exercise and healthy eating- with just one pill a day from Adipose Industries, the fat just walks away! Of course, if something looks too good to be true, it usually means that something strange is going on behind the scenes- and who better to investigate that than the Doctor? But he isn’t the only one on the case, for in the hopes of finding the elusive Time Lord, a certain Donna Noble has also taken an interest in Adipose Industries…

Doctor Who Christmas Special: Voyage of the Damned

Christmas usually means crackers, turkey (those few not culled due to bird flu), presents and relatives both unwanted and desired, but it has also come to mean something else- that a Doctor Who Christmas Special will be aired.
