It was broadcast on BBC One as part of the 2007 appeal for the children\'s charity Children in Need on 16 November. It was written by Steven Moffat and starred David Tennant and Peter Davison as the Doctor.[1]\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe episode depicts an encounter between the Doctor\'s fifth and tenth\nincarnations, played by Davison and Tennant respectively. "Time Crash"\nwas a ratings success, with a viewership of 10.9 million and a 45%\nshare of the total television audience that night, making it both the\nmost watched portion of the 2007 Children in Need special and the most\nwatched Doctor Who episode since the show\'s 2005 revival.[2]\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n//<![CDATA[\n if (window.showTocToggle) { var tocShowText = "show"; var tocHideText = "hide"; showTocToggle(); } \n//]]>\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Plot\nAfter saying farewell to Martha, the Doctor sets off on his travels when the TARDIS\nencounters a problem, the result of which involves the Fifth Doctor\nappearing in the console room. The Tenth Doctor is gleeful at the\nmeeting, but the Fifth Doctor is initially baffled, assuming his future\nincarnation is a deranged fan, possibly from LINDA.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe Tenth Doctor explains that he forgot to put up the shields after\nrebuilding the TARDIS and it collided with the Fifth Doctor\'s TARDIS\n(its earlier self) in the timestream. This is generating a paradox at\nthe heart of the ship powerful enough to rip a hole in the universe the\n(exact) size of Belgium. The Cloister Bell signals the impending end.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nHowever, without a thought, the Tenth Doctor manipulates the TARDIS controls to manipulate a supernova into exact counterbalance; it cancels out the black hole\ncaused by the paradox, so that all matter remains constant. This amazes\nthe Fifth Doctor, but he quickly realises that the Tenth Doctor \'came\nup with\' the solution only because he remembered this encounter.\nThe Fifth Doctor says his farewells, and the Tenth Doctor tells the\nFifth of the personality traits that he retained from his fifth self,\nalso telling him he loved being him and that he was "his" Doctor.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nAs he departs, the Fifth Doctor reminds the Tenth to raise his shields again, but too late; as he is doing so, the hull of the RMS Titanic crashes through one of the TARDIS walls, as originally seen at the end of the last series.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Cast\nThe Doctor -- David TennantThe Doctor -- Peter Davison\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Cast notes\nFreema Agyeman appears, uncredited, as Martha Jones in footage from "Last of the Time Lords" at the start of the episode, adding to the established events depicted then.At 56 on the date of filming, Davison -- still the current record\nholder for the youngest actor to play the Doctor -- was older than William Hartnell was when he began his run as the First Doctor\n- at 55 the oldest anyone has been when they first played the Doctor.\nFrom an in-character point of view, the aged appearance of the Fifth\nDoctor was explained away as an effect of the merge.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Continuity\nBoth the Fifth Doctor and the Tenth Doctor make references to each\nother\'s respective storylines throughout the episode. The Tenth Doctor\nmentions Nyssa and Tegan, the Mara, Time Lords wearing silly hats, as well as commenting at length on the Fifth Doctor\'s clothing. The Fifth Doctor asks the Tenth Doctor if he\'s connected with LINDA and uses the phrase "Wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey" first heard in "Blink", also by Steven Moffat. Other elements from the series such as Zeiton crystals, the helmic regulator and the thermobuffer are also mentioned.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nBoth Doctors refer to common elements throughout the series such as the Cybermen and the Master. The Fifth asks if the Master still has "that rubbish beard" (referencing the fact that actors Roger Delgado and Anthony Ainley portrayed the character with a beard), and the Tenth replies "No, no beard this time... well, a wife" (referring to Lucy Saxon). The Fifth Doctor also notes that the TARDIS\'s "desktop theme" has been changed, accounting for its radically different appearances throughout the series.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe Tenth Doctor offers to help the Fifth Doctor fix the problem caused by the TARDIS merge through his sonic screwdriver, which the Fifth Doctor declines. The latter\'s own sonic screwdriver was destroyed in the serial The Visitation, as then-producer John Nathan-Turner\nsaw it as an "easy way out" for writers to resolve any difficult\nsituation the Doctor faced. The sonic screwdriver would never appear in\nthe show again until the TV movie in 1996.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nDuring the original run of Doctor Who, the Doctor met different incarnations of "himself" in three stories: The Three Doctors (1973), The Five Doctors (1983) and The Two Doctors (1985). The Children in Need special Dimensions in Time\n(1993) also featured all the five surviving Doctors at the time, with\nspecially made busts standing in for the remaining two. In the Comic Relief sketch Doctor Who and the Curse of Fatal Death\n(1999), also written by Moffat, the Doctor regenerated four times,\nresulting in five different actors playing the role. Multi-Doctor\nstories have also appeared in Doctor Who spin-off media.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThere were also several instances of the incidental music changing\nto a style more heavily favoured during the time that Peter Davison\'s\nepisodes were produced. This differed greatly from the orchestral style\nof music now favoured by the programme.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Chronology\nIt is never explicitly stated where the Fifth Doctor\'s segment fits\ninto his own continuity. From the Tenth Doctor\'s perspective, the\nspecial takes place at the very end of "Last of the Time Lords",\nimmediately prior to the RMS Titanic crashing into the TARDIS.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Production\nThe episode was directed by Graeme Harper on October 7, 2007, who twenty-three years previously had directed Peter Davison\'s last regular appearance in Doctor Who in the serial The Caves of Androzani.[3] It was officially announced by the BBC on October 21.[1]\n\n\n\n\n\n\nAccording to the Doctor Who Confidential\nepisode featuring behind-the-scenes footage, the Fifth Doctor\'s coat\nand trousers are originals taken from the Blackpool Doctor Who\nexhibition. The trousers had been previously altered in order to fit Colin Baker for the regeneration scene in The Caves of Androzani (and the opening of The Twin Dilemma). The jumper was knitted especially for this episode, and the hat was a new roll-up panama hat with an original band added on.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nDavid Tennant mentioned in an interview the morning after airing\nthat the Tenth Doctor\'s speech complimenting the Fifth Doctor\'s sense\nof style and personality was written by himself, and that the Fifth was\nhis favourite Doctor.[citation needed]\n\n\n\n\n\n\nPrevious Doctor Who charity specials transmitted over the years include the aforementioned Dimensions in Time, Doctor Who and the Curse of Fatal Death and "Doctor Who: Children in Need". The first two are generally not regarded as canonical by Doctor Who fans, but the last one is, directly connecting "The Parting of the Ways" with "The Christmas Invasion". The anniversary special The Five Doctors was broadcast on Children in Need night for its United Kingdom premier broadcast.[4]\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Broadcast, reception and release\nThe episode was introduced by Terry Wogan and John Barrowman, who plays Captain Jack Harkness; Barrowman had just performed the song "Your Song".\n\n\n\n\n\n\nChildren in Need was the most-watched television programme of\nthe night, with an overnight rating of 9.4 million viewers, and figures\npeaked between 8:15pm and 8:30pm, when "Time Crash" was aired, with a\ntotal of 10.9 million viewers. The episode is therefore the most-viewed\nsince the show\'s revival in 2005, surpassing the revival\'s premiere, "Rose", which achieved a rating of 10.8 million viewers.[2] Calls also peaked during the episode\'s airing.[5] When the episode was replayed later that night it garnered an audience of 2.5 million viewers.[6]\n\n\n\n\n\n\nCritical reaction was positive, with reviewers calling it the highlight of the Children in Need special.[7][8] Steven Moffat was praised for his writing of the episode, which was characterized as witty and clever.[7][9] The performances of both Peter Davison and David Tennant were also well-received.[10][8]\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nSee also\nBlinovitch Limitation Effect\n\n\n\n\n\n

    Yes, for only the second time in Radio Free Skaro history, two of the hosts of the show were in the same place at the same time, huddled around a single computer in Edmonton. Of course, with the inclusion of the Third Guy, we still used the invisible tethers of the Internet to connect to London, and those tethers eventually snapped, leaving him relaying his messages to us via telegraph and carrier pigeon for the final minutes of the show. But despite the technical difficulties of both this week and last, we pressed on, bringing you a bumper crop of news, sarcasm and a few selections from the Series 3 soundtrack for your listening pleasure.

    Yes, for only the second time in Radio Free Skaro history, two of the hosts of the show were in the same place at the same time, huddled around a single computer in Edmonton. Of course, with the inclusion of the Third Guy, we still used the invisible tethers of the Internet to connect to London, and those tethers eventually snapped, leaving him relaying his messages to us via telegraph and carrier pigeon for the final minutes of the show. But despite the technical difficulties of both this week and last, we pressed on, bringing you a bumper crop of news, sarcasm and a few selections from the Series 3 soundtrack for your listening pleasure.

    Synopsis\nThe Ninth Doctor takes his new companion, Rose, on her first trip through time, 5 billion years into the future. There, on a space station called Platform One, he and Rose are on hand with a group of alien races to witness the Sun expand and swallow the Earth. However, someone is planning to sabotage the event with deadly robotic spiders.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\xc2\xa0Plot\n\n\n\n\n"Welcome to the end of the world."\n\n\nFollowing "Rose", the Doctor asks Rose where she would like to go on her first trip in the TARDIS, and she selects the future. The Doctor takes her to the year 5.5/Apple/26 (five billion years in her future) onto a space station named Platform One orbiting the Earth. In the eons since Rose\'s time, the Earth has emptied, mankind having left it long ago and the planet taken over by the National Trust. Although the expansion of the Sun\ntakes millions of years, gravity satellites held the effects back, and\nthe trust also restored the "classic" positions of the continents on\nEarth. Now that the money has run out, the Earth will be allowed to be\nswallowed up by the Sun at last. Platform One is where the extraterrestrial\nrich of the universe will witness the end of the world, which will\noccur in about an hour. The station has automated systems and is\nstaffed by blue-skinned humanoids.\n\n\n\n\nOn encountering the Steward, who manages Platform One, the Doctor\npersuades him that he and Rose are invited guests by using a piece of "psychic paper" that makes people see what the Doctor wants them to see. The other guests arrive, including the diminutive Moxx of Balhoon, the Face of Boe, living humanoid trees from the Forest of Cheem (whose ancestors originated on Earth) and, from Financial Family Seven, a group called the Adherents of the Repeated Meme. Rose watches in fascination as the last living human arrives -- the Lady Cassandra O\'Brien Dot Delta Seventeen,\nwho is just a piece of stretched-out skin with eyes and a mouth,\nmounted on a frame and connected to a brain jar. The skin needs to be\nconstantly moisturised by her attendants. The guests exchange gifts:\nJabe of the Forest of Cheem gives the Doctor a cutting taken from her grandfather; the Doctor gives her the gift of air from his lungs. The Moxx gives the gift of bodily salivas, and the Adherents of the Repeated Meme hand out gifts of "peace" in the form of metal spheres, even to the Steward.\n\n\n\n\nCassandra gives her own gifts: the last ostrich egg, and an "iPod" (a Wurlitzer jukebox) from ancient Earth. Rose is a bit overwhelmed when the jukebox plays "classical" music -- the song "Tainted Love" by Soft Cell -- and leaves the hall. She has a brief conversation with a station plumber,\nRaffalo, who is investigating a blockage. At first she is comforted by\nthe familiarity of Raffalo\'s matter-of-fact, working-class manner. But\nwhen Raffalo explains that she is from Crespallion, which is part of\nthe Jaggit Brocade, affiliated to the Scarlet Junction, in Complex 56,\nRose realises how far she is from home, and with a man she does not\neven know. Rose leaves, and does not see Raffalo spot some small, spider-like robots\nin the ducts, which rapidly grab her and pull her inside. Meanwhile,\nthe spiders are being disgorged from the metal spheres gifted by the\nAdherents of the Repeated Meme to the various guests, and soon\ninfiltrate the entire station, sabotaging its systems.\n\n\n\n\nThe Doctor finds Rose, and when Rose asks him where he is from, the\nDoctor brushes her questions off, getting defensive and angry. When the\nDoctor alters Rose\'s mobile phone\nso she can talk to her mother in the past, another fact sinks in -- her\nmother is long dead. The Doctor jokes that if Rose thought the\ntelephone call was amazing, she should see the bill. Suddenly, a tremor\nshakes the station, and the Doctor observes that it was not supposed to\nhappen. The Steward, investigating the cause of the tremor, is killed\nwhen a spider lowers the sun filter in his room, exposing him to the\ndirect heat of the Sun\'s rays.\n\n\n\n\nThe Doctor also starts to look into the tremor, and Jabe offers to\nshow him where the maintenance corridors are while Rose goes to speak\nto Cassandra. Rose finds that Cassandra has had 708 operations to keep\nher alive, and considers herself the last "pure" human -- the others who\nleft "intermingled" with other species and she considers them all\nmongrels. Her 709th operation, to bleach her blood, is next week.\nDisgusted that humanity has come to this, Rose insults Cassandra and\nstorms off, only to be met by the Adherents, who knock her out.\n\n\n\n\nIn the corridors, Jabe quietly tells the Doctor that she scanned him\nearlier, and was astonished to discover what he was and that he still\neven exists. She genuinely sympathises with him, putting a hand on his\narm, and the Doctor is briefly moved to tears. They then continue to\nthe bowels of the station, where they find one of the spiders. Jabe\ncaptures it with a liana, a long, vine-like appendage which she usually keeps hidden out of courtesy.\n\n\n\n\nAs the station\'s systems continue to be sabotaged and, as a "traditional ballad" -- Britney Spears\'s "Toxic"\n-- plays on the jukebox, Rose wakes to find herself trapped in a room\nwith a lowering sun filter. The Doctor hears her cries for help and\nmanages to raise the filter, but Rose is still locked in. Returning to\nthe main hall, the Doctor releases the spider to seek out its master.\nAt first it focuses on the Adherents of the Repeated Meme, but the\nDoctor points out that repeated memes are just ideas, and the Adherents\nare remote-controlled droids. He deactivates them and the spider scurries over to Cassandra.\n\n\n\n\nCassandra has her attendants hold the others at bay, saying that the\nmoisturiser guns can also shoot acid. She reveals that her operations\ncost a fortune, and she was hoping to create a hostage situation\nwhereby she could later seek compensation. Now she will just let\neveryone burn and take over their corporate holdings. Cassandra orders\nthe spiders to shut off the force field protecting the station, then\nuses an illegal teleportation device to transport herself and her attendants away.\n\n\n\n\nWith only a few minutes left until the Sun incinerates Earth and the\nstation, the Doctor and Jabe rush back down to the air-conditioning\nchamber. The restore switch for the computer systems is at the other\nend of a platform blocked by giant rotating fans. The Doctor protests\nthat the rising heat will burn the wooden Jabe, but she insists on\nstaying to hold down the switch that slows the fans. The Doctor makes\nit nearly to the end before Jabe catches fire and burns. He closes his\neyes and concentrates, making it past the last fan and throwing the\nreset switch. The force fields come up around the station just in time,\nas the Earth explodes into cinders. The station\'s systems start to\nself-repair.\n\n\n\n\nHowever, several of the guests are now dead (including the Moxx but\nnot the Face of Boe), burned alive as the Sun\'s rays burst through\ncracks in the windows. The Doctor is furious, and after finding\nCassandra\'s teleportation feed inside the ostrich egg, reverses it to\nbring her back. She quickly regains her poise and starts taunting the\nDoctor, saying that he cannot do anything about her. However, the\nDoctor calmly notes that he has transported Cassandra back without her\nmoisturising attendants. In the raised temperature, she begins to dry\nout. Cassandra begs for mercy and Rose asks the Doctor to help her, but\nthe Doctor coldly says that every thing has its time, and every thing\ndies. Cassandra\'s skin stretches and tears, her innards exploding and\nleaving only her brain tank and empty frame.\n\n\n\n\nRose is sad that in all the danger, the Earth\'s passing was not\nactually witnessed by anyone. The Doctor takes her back to the present\nin the TARDIS, telling her that people think things will last forever,\nbut they don\'t. He reveals to her that his home planet was burned like Earth, but in a war,\nand that he is the last survivor of the Time Lords. Rose says that he\nstill has her, and he smiles as she offers to buy him some chips -- they\nonly have five billion years before the shops close.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Cast\nDoctor Who -- Christopher EcclestonRose Tyler -- Billie PiperSteward -- Simon DayJabe -- Yasmin BannermanMoxx of Balhoon -- Jimmy VeeCassandra -- Zoe WanamakerJackie Tyler -- Camille CoduriRaffalo -- Beccy ArmoryComputer Voice -- Sara StewartAlien Voices -- Silas Carson, Nicholas Briggs\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Cast notes\nCassandra is a CGI\ncreation voiced by actress Zoe Wanamaker. Writer Russell T. Davies\nrevealed that Cassandra was inspired by the appearance of various\nfemale celebrities at the Oscars. He said, "It was horrific seeing those beautiful women reduced to sticks. Nicole Kidman struck me in particular." Wanamaker reprised the role of Cassandra in the 2006 series\' first episode, "New Earth."[1] See also Celebrity appearances in Doctor Who.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Continuity\nThe new TARDIS console has a rather thrown-together appearance and\nincludes the use of a bicycle-pump like mechanism, identified as a\n"vortex loop" in "Attack of the Graske" (2005).[2] Some earlier serials have stated that the Eye of Harmony on Gallifrey is the power source for the TARDIS. If it were destroyed along with Gallifrey, this may imply a certain amount of bodging was done to overcome the problem.The Doctor explains that the TARDIS\'s telepathic field is what gives Rose the ability to understand and be understood by the aliens. This concept was first introduced in the Fourth Doctor serial The Masque of Mandragora (1976), described by the Doctor as a "Time Lord gift" he shares with his companions.The concept of a Doctor-supercharged communications device first appeared in The Three Doctors (1972-73), where the Second Doctor modifies the Brigadier\'s radio telephone to allow him to contact his men through interference generated by antimatter.[3] The Doctor also gives the Brigadier a "space-time telegraph" which he uses to summon the Doctor to assist with the events of Terror of the Zygons (1975).[4] In the "unofficial" animated webcast Scream of the Shalka (2003), the Doctor uses a mobile phone that is part of the TARDIS to communicate with the outside world even while falling into a black hole.This is the fourth time in the series that Earth has been burned by the Sun, the other occasions being sometime after the 30th century in The Ark in Space (1975)[5], two million years from the present in The Mysterious Planet (1986)[6] and ten million years from the present in The Ark (1966).[7]The other guests attending Platform One, as announced by the\nSteward, include the brothers Hop Pyleen, inventors and copyright\nholders of hyposlip travel systems from the exalted clifftops of Rex\nVox Jax; the cybernetic hyperstar Cal "Sparkplug" MacNannovich (plus\nguest); the avian\nMr and Mrs Pakoo; the chosen scholars of Class Fifty-five of the\nUniversity of Rago Rago Five Six Rago; and the Ambassadors from the\nCity State of Binding Light (oxygen levels must be monitored strictly at all times in the Ambassadors\' presence).[8]In conversation with the Moxx of Balhoon, the Face of Boe mentions the "Bad Wolf scenario." On the BBC\'s Bad Wolf website, it was listed as "the classic bad wolf scenario".[9] (The subtitles of the DVD\nrelease give the phrase as "bad-move scenario", but this is probably an\nerror.) The phrase "Bad Wolf" is a recurring theme in the 2005 series.The Steward informs the Doctor that teleportation is banned under\n"Peace Treaty 5.4/Cup/15" (presumably the name of the treaty followed\nby the year it was enacted). How exactly this dating system works is\nnever explained.The Doctor tells Jabe that he was once on another "unsinkable" ship\nand wound up clinging to an iceberg, an apparent reference to having\nbeen on the RMS Titanic when she sank. Which incarnation of the Doctor did this is not specified, although the Seventh Doctor was on board the Titanic in the Virgin New Adventures novel The Left-Handed Hummingbird by Kate Orman (which is of uncertain canonicity).[10] He did not, however, wind up on an iceberg in that story. In the Fourth Doctor story The Invasion of Time (1978),[11] the Doctor claims that he "wasn\'t responsible" for the disaster. In "Rose", Clive, a conspiracy theorist,\nshows Rose a photograph of the Ninth Doctor with "the Daniels family of\nSouthampton", on the eve of their scheduled voyage on the Titanic. For an unspecified reason, they canceled their trip and survived.[12] At the end of "Last of the Time Lords" the Tenth Doctor and the TARDIS are hit by the bow of the Titanic, which smashes through the TARDIS\'s walls.The Doctor pilots the TARDIS to two time periods before its\neventual arrival five billion years in the future: the year 2105, which\nhe claims is slightly boring, and the year 12005, which he calls the\nNew Roman Empire. The Doctor previously visited the 22nd century in The Dalek Invasion of Earth.This episode is the first episode to appear in the year five billion timeline.The Face of Boe is revealed to be from the Silver Devastation, which is where Professor Yana reveals he is "from" in the episode "Utopia".\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Production\nAccording to the DVD commentary, many of the Platform One interiors were filmed at the Temple of Peace in Cardiff, Wales. Sets were also built and painted to match the Temple\'s marble interiors.In the documentary series Doctor Who Confidential, Russell T. Davies joked that that there would never be such an expensive episode again (because of the large amount of CGI\nspecial effects). Both Cassandra and the robotic spiders -- other than\nan inactive one -- are completely CGI generated creatures. The\ndocumentary also reveals that there are 203 visual effects shots in\nthis episode, compared to "about 100" in the film Gladiator.[13]The "iPod" (a Wurlitzer jukebox) that Cassandra unveils plays "Tainted Love" by Soft Cell and later "Toxic" by Britney Spears. "Toxic" was not actually released as a 7" 45 rpm vinyl single. The production team mocked up a 7" single for use in the episode.Jabe\'s scan of the Doctor displays an animation by Drew Berry of translation, a process wherein a protein molecule is synthesised according to the genetic code carried by messenger RNA. A production sketch of the scanner drawn by Matthew Savage shows a scan of the Doctor indicating nine different DNA samples -- one for each incarnation.[14]\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\xc2\xa0Broadcast\nThis episode begins with a cold open,\nwhich from here on became a standard feature. This is a first for the\nseries, which previously used pre-credits teaser sequences sparingly in\nspecial episodes such as the post-regeneration Castrovalva (1982); the 20th anniversary special, The Five Doctors (1983); and the 25th anniversary story, Remembrance of the Daleks (1988).According to a March 2006 interview with Russell T Davies, he\nrequested for this episode to be broadcast back-to-back with "Rose",\nbut the request was given to the BBC too close to transmission.[15] However, the American Sci-Fi Channel did run the two episodes consecutively.\n\n\n\n

    Rose Tyler is a shop assistant at Henrik\'s, a department store in present-day London. One evening, she is about to go home when the security guard passes her a packet containing lottery\nmoney, presumably to be given to whoever runs the staff syndicate. Rose\ngoes to the basement to find Wilson, the chief electrician, but he is\nnowhere to be found. She hears a noise and goes to see what it is,\nentering a room filled with plastic\nstore dummies. The door slams shut, locking her in, and the mannequins\ncome to life, backing her into a corner. Before the lead one can strike\nher, someone grabs Rose\'s hand: a tall, strange-looking man in a\nleather jacket and crew cut, who tells her to run.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nRose and the stranger burst through another set of doors and race\ndown the corridors of the basement, pursued by the dummies. They reach\nthe lifts,\nand a mannequin\'s arm lunges through the closing doors. The stranger\ngrapples with the arm, and with a jerk, yanks it off. The doors shut,\nand the stranger tosses the now lifeless plastic arm to Rose. She still\nbelieves that it is some kind of student prank, but the stranger shakes\nhis head. They are living plastic, and Wilson is dead.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nReaching the ground level, the stranger disables the lift buttons\nwith a pen-like device that projects a high-pitched whine. The stranger\nexplains the plastic creatures are being controlled by a relay on the\nroof, and he is going to destroy it with an explosive device. He ushers\nRose out and before he goes back into the building, he introduces\nhimself as the Doctor.\nHe asks for her name, and she tells him it is Rose. "Nice to meet you,\nRose," the Doctor says, adding, "Run for your life!" Rose reaches the\nother side of the street, still holding onto the arm, and looks up at\nthe Henrik\'s building as the top floors and roof explode. She runs off\nin the confusion, not noticing an anachronistic police box standing off to the side.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nLater, Rose watches the report of the fire on television at her council flat, her mother Jackie telling friends on the telephone about her daughter\'s narrow escape. Rose\'s boyfriend Mickey\narrives, expressing concern, but she tells him she is fine. Rose asks\nhim to dispose of the plastic arm, which Mickey tosses in a rubbish bin\nat the foot of Rose\'s block of flats when he leaves.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe next morning, Jackie suggests Rose take a new job or ask for\ncompensation. Rose hears someone at the door, and peeks through the cat flap\nto see the Doctor\'s face. The Doctor seems as startled to see her -- he\nappears to have gotten the wrong signal. Rose drags him in, wanting\nanswers so she can tell the police. Jackie is fascinated by the new\narrival and tries, awkwardly, to seduce him. The Doctor simply says\n"No," and steps away, to Jackie\'s irritation.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nRose fixes coffee while the Doctor waits in the living room, peering\nat his own reflection in the mirror as if for the first time and\nlooking at everything. The Doctor hears a scuttling behind Rose\'s sofa,\nand when he looks, the plastic arm which has somehow returned leaps up\nto strangle him. Rose thinks the Doctor is just play acting with the\narm until it attacks her. Jackie, drying her hair in the other room,\nhears nothing as the Doctor and Rose crash around with the arm.\nManaging to pull it away from Rose, the Doctor uses the same pen-like\ndevice -- his sonic screwdriver -- to shut it down.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nRose follows the Doctor as he leaves. The Doctor tells her that the\nplastic arm was fixed on him as a target and only attacked Rose because\nshe got in the way. It was controlled by something that projected life\ninto the arm by thought, and he simply cut off the signal. Their\npurpose is to destroy the human race. Rose does not believe him, but\nthe Doctor notes that she\'s still listening.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nShe asks the Doctor once again who he is as he walks towards a\npolice box. The Doctor tells her that it\'s like when you are a child\nand are first told the world revolves. You cannot quite believe it\nbecause everything looks like it is standing still. He takes her hand,\ntelling her that he can feel it, the Earth turning, the world itself spinning around the Sun,\neveryone falling through space and clinging to the surface of this tiny\nplanet, and if they let go... That\'s who he is. The Doctor tells Rose\nto forget him and go home. She walks away but when she hears a strange,\ngrating sound and runs back, the Doctor and the police box have\ndisappeared.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nRose goes to Mickey\'s flat and uses his computer to search the\nInternet for information about the Doctor. She finds a website, "Who is\nDoctor Who?", which features a picture of the Doctor together with an\nappeal for anyone who has seen him to contact the site\'s maintainer, a\nman called Clive. Rose goes to see Clive at his house in suburban\nLondon while Mickey waits, suspicious, in the car outside.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nIn his study, Clive tells Rose that the name of the Doctor keeps cropping up through the years in diaries, journals and conspiracy theories.\nNo names, just the Doctor, perhaps a title that is passed along from\nfather to son. He shows her photographs that show the Doctor in the\ncrowd at the Kennedy assassination, at Southampton on the eve of the Titanic\'s sailing, and in a drawing from 1883 that was washed up on the coast of Sumatra after the eruption of Krakatoa. Clive explains that the Doctor is a name woven throughout history, bringing storms in his wake, death his constant companion.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nAs Mickey waits impatiently outside, he goes to investigate a\nplastic rubbish bin that he saw moving on its own, but it is empty. As\nhe tries to return to the car, he finds his hands stuck to the lid, the\nplastic stretching but not letting him go. He is yanked into the bin,\nwhich shuts with a loud belch.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nClive warns Rose that they are all in danger. He believes that these\npictures all portray the same man, and that the Doctor is an immortal alien.\nRose thinks Clive is delusional. She returns to Mickey\'s car and tells\nhim to drive somewhere for lunch, not realizing he has been replaced by\nan auton.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nAt the restaurant, "Mickey" wants to know more about the Doctor. The\nauton isn\'t quite perfect, and stutters, but she does not want to\ndiscuss the Doctor, saying she thinks he is dangerous. A waiter offers\nMickey and Rose champagne.\n"Mickey" says they did not order any -- then looks up and sees the\nwaiter is the Doctor. The Doctor pops the cork on the bottle, sending\nit flying into "Mickey"\'s head, which absorbs it, then spits it out.\n"Mickey" morphs his hand into a heavy spade-shape, slicing the table in\nhalf. The Doctor gets "Mickey" in a choke hold and manages to pull his\nhead off. The headless auton rampages through the restaurant. Rose\ntells the other patrons to run, then follows the Doctor, who is holding\nonto the head.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nReaching the yard, the Doctor seals the door behind them with the\nsonic screwdriver, but the auton is soon pummeling it with inhuman\nforce. The Doctor suggests they go into the police box standing there.\nRose incredulously follows him in, but stops short as she sees the\ninterior. She runs around the box, assuring herself of its ordinary\nsize before going in again just as the auton breaks through.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nInside the much larger interior of the ship, the Doctor assures Rose\nthat nothing can get through the doors. He attaches the plastic head to\nthe console, telling Rose that the head can be used to trace the signal\nback to the source. Rose asks if the ship and the Doctor are alien and\nhe answers yes to both questions. The ship is his TARDIS\n-- Time and Relative Dimension in Space. Rose chokes back a sob, and\nasks if "they" have killed Mickey. The Doctor is taken aback as he had\nnot considered this, and Rose is shocked he has not. "Mickey"\'s head\nstarts to melt, and the Doctor frantically runs to the console, trying\nto lock on to the signal before it fades. The TARDIS starts up, and\nthen stops.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe Doctor rushes through the doors, with Rose shouting that it is\nnot safe. When she follows him, however, they are not in the yard\nanymore but on the banks of the River Thames.\nThe Doctor says the TARDIS is able to disappear and reappear in a\ndifferent place. He is angry because he has lost the signal. Rose is\nworried about the automaton, but the Doctor says it would have melted\nalong with the head. Rose mutters that she is going to have to tell\nMickey\'s mother that he is dead, and when the Doctor asks who, Rose\nrealizes the Doctor has forgotten Mickey again. They have a\nconfrontation about his lack of empathy, the Doctor shouting that he is\nmore concerned about saving the life of "every stupid ape blundering\nabout on top of this planet." Rose asks if the Doctor\'s an alien, why\nhe sounds like he\'s from the North. The Doctor retorts that lots of\nplanets have a North. This seems to defuse the tension.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nRose stares at the exterior of the TARDIS and asks what a police\npublic call box is. The Doctor, cheerful again, explains that it is a\ndisguise, a telephone box for the police from the 1950s.\nRose, curious again, asks what the living plastic creatures have\nagainst the Earth. The Doctor replies that they love the Earth because\nit has plenty of pollutants. The Nestene Consciousness\n-- the intelligence animating the plastic -- lost its food supply during\na war, when all its protein planets rotted. Earth is dinner. Rose asks\nif there is any way to stop it, and the Doctor produces a clear\ncylinder of blue liquid. "Anti-plastic," he announces.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nHowever, the Doctor has to find the Consciousness. He wonders aloud\nthat the transmitter to control the plastic has to be huge, and round...\nRose indicates behind him, and after a few puzzled glances over his\nshoulder the Doctor notices the London Eye.\nHand in hand, they run across the bridge to it. Rose spots a hatchway\nthat leads below the Eye, and they both go below to find a giant vat of\npulsing, molten plastic -- the Nestene Consciousness. The Doctor wants\nto give it a chance and applies for an audience, citing Convention 15\nof the Shadow Proclamation. The vat roars its assent in an\nunintelligible alien language. Rose spots the real Mickey, sitting\nterrified on one of the walkways. The Nestenes kept him alive to\nmaintain the replica.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe Doctor tells the Consciousness to leave Earth, brushing aside its claims of constitutional\nrights and characterizing its actions as an invasion. The Doctor pleads\non humanity\'s behalf -- they are primitive, but capable of much more.\nHowever, two autons grab hold of the Doctor, one removing the container\nof anti-plastic from his jacket.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe Doctor protests that the vial was just insurance and he is not\ntheir enemy. The Consciousness responds by unveiling the TARDIS, and\nmakes an accusatory howl. The Doctor admits that it is his ship, but\nsays that it was not his fault -- he fought in the war,\nbut he could not save the Nestenes\' world. The Consciousness does not\nbelieve the Doctor and goes to the final phase of the invasion. Bolts\nof electricity stab up across the London Eye as it pulses a signal\nacross London. Rose tries to warn her mother on her mobile phone, but\nthe call breaks up and Jackie, who is about to enter a shopping centre\ncalled the Queen\'s Arcade, cuts it off.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nClive and his family are also at the arcade when the shop dummies\ncome to life, crashing through the windows. Clive realizes that all the\nstories he has read are true, just as a mannequin\'s hand flips open,\nrevealing a weapon. He looks on sadly as the auton shoots him\npoint-blank. People scream as the automatons start killing everyone in\nsight. Beneath the Eye, the stairs back up to the surface collapse.\nRose and Mickey rush to the TARDIS, but the door is locked. As she and\nthe Doctor lock eyes helplessly, outside in the streets the massacre\ncontinues. Jackie is trapped by a group of mannequins in wedding dresses, who prepare to shoot her.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nMickey tells Rose to abandon the Doctor, but Rose rushes up a flight of stairs to a chain on the wall. She may have no A-levels, no job and no future, but she has a bronze medal in under-sevens gymnastics. She frees the chain with a blow from a fire axe,\nand swings across to knock the auton holding the anti-plastic over the\nrailing. While the Doctor flips the one holding him over as well, the\nanti-plastic falls into the vat, causing the Consciousness to writhe in\npain. The Eye stops transmitting, and the autons across London jerk\nspastically and drop, including the ones menacing Jackie, leaving the\nstreets scattered with debris and the dead. The Nestenes\' vat explodes\nas Rose, Mickey and the Doctor enter the TARDIS and it dematerialises.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe TARDIS rematerialises on a side street, Mickey stumbling out,\nstill terrified. Rose calls up her mother on her mobile phone and\nsmiles in relief as she hears Jackie\'s voice. Rose hangs up without\nsaying anything, and tells the Doctor that he would have been dead if\nnot for her. The Doctor smiles from the TARDIS doorway in agreement and\nthanks her. He then offers to take her with him to see the universe --\nMickey is not invited. Rose asks if it will always be this dangerous,\nand the Doctor gleefully answers yes. Rose hesitates but declines,\nsaying that she has to find her mother and look after Mickey. The\nDoctor nods, disappointed and closes the door. The TARDIS\ndematerialises with a rush of wind filling the empty space where it was.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nAs Mickey and Rose turn to leave, the TARDIS appears again. The\nDoctor pops his head out and asks Rose if he had mentioned that the\nTARDIS also travels in time. Rose smiles, turning to Mickey to kiss him\ngoodbye, then runs happily into the TARDIS.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nCast\nDoctor Who -- Christopher EcclestonRose Tyler -- Billie PiperJackie Tyler -- Camille CoduriMickey Smith -- Noel ClarkeClive -- Mark BentonCaroline -- Ellie GarnettClive\'s Son -- Adam McCoyAutons -- Alan Ruscoe, Paul Kasey, David Sant, Elizabeth Fost, Helen OtwayNestene Voice -- Nicholas Briggs\n\n\n\n\n\n

    TDP 29: DVD Box set review and Scream of the Shalka

    Scream of the Shalka was a flash-animated serial based on the British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It was produced to coincide with the 40th Anniversary of the series and was originally posted in six weekly parts from 13 November to 18 December 2003 on BBCi\'s Doctor Who website.\nAlthough it was intended to be an "official" continuation of the\ntelevision series that had ended in 1989, the revival of the programme\nin 2005 relegated it, and its "Ninth Doctor", to unofficial status.\n\n\nThe serial was scripted by veteran Doctor Who writer Paul Cornell, with Richard E. Grant providing the voice for the Ninth Doctor and Derek Jacobi as the voice of an android made in the image of the Doctor\'s old enemy, the Master. This performance followed years of rumours that Grant would play the Doctor in a film or new series, and indeed he had appeared as the Tenth "conceited" Doctor in the Comic Relief special Doctor Who and the Curse of Fatal Death in 1999. The Doctor\'s companion for this adventure, Alison Cheney, was voiced by Sophie Okonedo who a year later would be nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in Hotel Rwanda.\n\n\nPrevious Doctor Who webcasts had had limited animation and\nwere little more than a series of illustrations. Earlier in 2003, BBCi\nhad had some success with the original animated webcast Ghosts of Albion. The animation for that story was provided by Manchester-based animation studio Cosgrove Hall, who were also hired to animate Scream of the Shalka.\n\n\nThis story was the first officially-licensed, fully-animated Doctor Who story.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n//<![CDATA[\n if (window.showTocToggle) { var tocShowText = "show"; var tocHideText = "hide"; showTocToggle(); } \n//]]>\n\n\n\n\n Synopsis\n\n\n\n\nThe Doctor confronts Prime, War Chief of the Shalka Confederation, and her minions\n\n\nThe TARDIS materialises in the village of Lannet in Lancashire,\ndisgorging an annoyed Doctor, who has apparently been transported here\nagainst his will. He discovers the village silent, its inhabitants all\nliving in fear except for a barmaid, Alison Cheney. An alien race calling themselves the Shalka\nhave taken up residence beneath Lannet in preparation for a wider\ninvasion. Despite his initial reluctance to get involved, the Doctor\nfinds himself having to save the world again, aided by Alison and an\nold enemy who has become an ally.\n\n\n\n\n\n Cast\nThe Doctor -- Richard E. GrantAlison Cheney -- Sophie OkonedoDawson/ Greaves -- Conor MoloneyMax -- Andrew DunnJoe -- Craig KellyMathilda Pierce -- Anna Calder-MarshallThe Master -- Derek JacobiPrime -- Diana QuickMajor Kennet -- Jim NortonCaretaker -- David Tennant\n\n\n\n\n\n Continuity\nGrant\'s incarnation of the Time Lord (often referred to as the "REG Doctor" or the "Shalka Doctor" by fans) has since appeared in an online short story, The Feast of the Stone by Cavan Scott and Mark Wright, although no further stories are planned.Major Kennet looks over a UNIT file with the Doctor.Toward the end of the Eighth Doctor Adventures\nnovel range, the "expanded canon" began to consciously diverge, with\nthe audio plays and novels intentionally contradicting each other. In\nthe final Eighth Doctor novel, The Gallifrey Chronicles,\nthe idea is put forward that each of the separate narrative threads --\npresumably books, comics, and audios, as implicitly suggested in Zagreus\n-- has led to a different ninth incarnation of the Doctor. The\nimplication here, though not explicitly stated, is that the three\nDoctors are the televised Ninth Doctor, Rowan Atkinson\'s Doctor from The Curse of Fatal Death, and the Shalka Doctor. Some fans have used this "expanded timeline" theory to fit Scream of the Shalka into overall continuity.[citation needed]\n\n\n\n\n\n Shalka\n\n\nDoctor Who race\n\n\n\n\n\nShalka\n\n\nType\nBioplasmic entities\n\n\nAffiliated\xc2\xa0with\nShalka Confederacy\n\n\nHome\xc2\xa0planet\nUnknown\n\n\nFirst\xc2\xa0appearance\nScream of the Shalka\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe Shalka appear to be a serpentine alien race made of living rock and magma,\nbut they are actually bioplasmic entities, living plasma, their\nphysical appearance merely a "crust" concealing their true forms. They\nbreathe volcanic air and prefer high temperatures, being most\ncomfortable underground where lava meets metamorphic rock.\nThey communicate through high-pitched screaming, which they can use for\na variety of effects, like tunneling through rock or mentally\ncontrolling other life forms. They also use sound as a part of their\ntechnology.\n\n\nThe Shalka arrived on Earth via meteorite, initially landing near Mount Ruapehu, New Zealand, subsequently establishing a beachhead for their planned invasion of Earth beneath the Lancashire town of Lannet. They also created a stable wormhole for landing their invasion force, which could also be converted into a black hole to dispose of their enemies, as they tried to do with the Doctor.\n\n\nAs they claimed to have done to billions of planets before, they\nintended to implant Shalka larvae into key segments of the population,\nmind controlling them into emitting a scream that would destroy the ozone layer.\nIn this way, the Shalka intended to raise the surface temperature of\nthe planet to the point where the human race would perish but the\nShalka could thrive. The Shalka would then live beneath the surface,\nwith the rest of the universe believing that Earth\'s inhabitants had\ndied of self-inflicted ecological damage. The Doctor defeated their\nplans with the help of the British military and a Lannet barmaid named Alison.\n\n\n\n\n\n Production\nDoctor Who had suspended production in 1989, and aside from charity specials, had only resurfaced as an American-funded television movie in 1996, which did not garner enough ratings to go to a regular series. When Shalka was announced in July, 2003 for planned broadcast in November, the possibiliy of Doctor Who\nreturning to television screens still seemed remote and BBC Worldwide\nwere continuing to shop around for another possible movie deal. As a\nresult, BBCi announced, with BBC approval, that the Doctor appearing in\nShalka would be the "official" Ninth Doctor. However, events rapidly overtook this.\n\n\nIn September Lorraine Heggessey, the Controller of BBC One, managed to persuade BBC Worldwide that as their plans for a Doctor Who film were nowhere near fruition, BBC television should be allowed to make a new series. A deal with Russell T. Davies to produce the new series was quickly struck, and on September 26, the BBC announced that Doctor Who would be returning to BBC One in 2005, produced by BBC Wales. As a result, the "official" nature of the Shalka webcast was in doubt from even before it was webcast.\n\n\nAfter the webcast, in February 2004, plans for sequels or a DVD\nrelease were indefinitely shelved. For a period, it was unclear if the\nnew television Doctor would be the Ninth or Tenth Doctor, but this was\nultimately settled in April 2004 when in an interview with Doctor Who Magazine, Davies announced that the new television Doctor (played by Christopher Eccleston), would be the Ninth Doctor,\nrelegating the Richard E. Grant Doctor to unofficial status. Davies\nlater commented that Grant had never been considered for the role in\nthe television series, telling Doctor Who Magazine: "I thought\nhe was terrible. I thought he took the money and ran, to be honest. It\nwas a lazy performance. He was never on our list to play the Doctor."[1]\n\n\n\n\n\n Production notes\nThe working title for this production was Servants of the Shalakor. This original story outline is included in the BBC Books novelisation (see below).Appearing in an uncredited cameo role in the serial as a caretaker was actor and Doctor Who fan David Tennant, who in April 2005 was announced as the Tenth Doctor\nin the television series proper. He was not originally cast in the\nproduction, but Tennant happened to be recording a radio play in a\nneighbouring studio, and when he discovered what was being recorded\nnext door managed to convince the director to give him a small role.Derek Jacobi would later play the Master again in the 2007 episode "Utopia".In the pub scene, the Cosgrove Hall Studios logo can briefly be seen on beermats, advertising "Volunteer Ale."The font used in titles and end credits (Industria) was the one used on the BBC\'s lines of Doctor Who video releases and spin-off novels at the time. It continues to be used on the classic series DVD releases.In 2006 Cosgrove Hall was again to create a Doctor Who related animation, the two missing episodes of The Invasion for that serial\'s DVD release. In 2007, some of the animation staff from these two productions went on to develop The Infinite Quest, a 13-part serial to be aired as part of the second series of Totally Doctor Who. A behind-the-scenes documentary on the making of the Invasion episodes entitled Flash Frames includes footage from Scream of the Shalka -- the only footage from the production to see DVD release.\n\n\n\n\n\n In print\n\n\nDoctor Who book\n\n\n\n\n\nScream of the Shalka\n\n\nSeries\nPast Doctor Adventures\n\n\nRelease\xc2\xa0number\n64\n\n\nFeaturing\nShalka Doctor\nThe Master and Alison\n\n\nWriter\nPaul Cornell\n\n\nPublisher\nBBC Books\n\n\nISBN\nISBN 0-563-48619-8\n\n\nSet\xc2\xa0between\nUnknown\n\n\nNumber\xc2\xa0of\xc2\xa0pages\n288\n\n\nRelease\xc2\xa0date\nFebruary 2004\n\n\nPreceded\xc2\xa0by\nDeadly Reunion\n\n\nFollowed\xc2\xa0by\nEmpire of Death\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe novelisation of Shalka was written by Paul Cornell, the first novelisation of a Doctor Who serial (the 1996 television movie notwithstanding) in nearly a decade (and the last so far, although novelisations based upon episodes of the spinoff The Sarah Jane Adventures were announced in 2007). The book also includes a feature on the making of the webcast, as well as the original Servants of the Shalahoa story outline. Given that the BBC and the producers of the televised Doctor Who have discounted Scream of the Shalka as being part of the franchise\'s continuity, this is one of the few Doctor Who novels for which the canonicity (or in this case, lack thereof) has firmly been established.\n\n\n\n\n\nDVD release\nThe British Board of Film Classification\nhas cleared all six episodes of the serial for release on DVD, but the\nBBC has made no announcement about release of the story. As of March\n2007, only clips from the serial have been released to DVD, as part of Flash Frames, a documentary on the DVD release of the restored The Invasion.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Scream of the Shalka webcast\nDoctor Who: Scream of the Shalka at the Internet Movie DatabaseScream of the Shalka, on the BBC websiteScream of the Shalka at the Doctor Who Reference GuideScream of the Shalka theme music\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nScream of the Shalka novelisation

    Hier ist der inoffizelle zweite Teil des letzten Castes. Diesmal gibt es weder News noch Post, sondern direkt dreifach etwas auf die Ohren. Wie im letzten Cast schon gesagt, besprechen wir diesmal die drei Big Finish Horspiele The Wishing Beast, Frozen Time und Son of the Dragon, bei denen fur die meisten Horer auch das passenden Horspiel dabei sein sollte... Also wenn ihr mit Big Finish anfangen wollt - lohnt es sich kurz reinzuhoren.
