A warp ellipse draws the TARDIS onto what appears to be a stranded starliner. Nyssa and Tegan become separated from the Doctor; not in space, but 6 years into the past, while the Doctor has to deal with a curious schoolboy named Turlough, who has got himself mixed up with an old enemy. The Doctor’s old friend, the Brigadier, is enjoying life as a school teacher, but why doesn’t he remember the Doctor at all?
Things are getting a pit prickly as the Doctor and Romana II have an encounter with Meglos, a super intelligent cactus with aims for world domination. Of course he’s going to need to borrow a body, which he can also make look like the Doctor (while keeping the real thing tucked away in a time bubble). Not that a little Chronic Hysteresis Loop will stop the Doctor.
The old west beckons again, but this isn’t the wild west; just the town of Mercy. With 81 inhabitants, electronic lights, an alien doctor and a cyborg gunslinger lurking out in the desert. Naturally the Doctor is excited about the whole thing, though Amy and Rory less so. Of course the color of hats have nothing to do with anyone’s alignment… at least this time.
We return to the days of black and white as we join the Second Doctor, Jamie and Zoe find themselves right in the middle of it again as they stumbling upon the Gonds. A group of almost humans are the servers of the enigmatic Krotons. Of course now that they TARDIS has arrived they are going to finally put in an appearance.
Ah, the great outdoors! A place where the Torchwood team is completely out of place. Of course they have to go out into the fresh air and unsullied land to investigate the very real possibility that a bunch of aliens are going around and killing people. Of course just because they are expecting aliens doesn’t mean that’s what really is out their waiting for them.
Milkshakes all around (and maybe over a person or two) as we pay a visit to the dark side of the planet Svartos. Home to random rouges like Sabalom Glitz, a time storm displaced teen from the 1980 in one Dorothy McShane, though everyone calls her Ace, a frozen alien mad men called Kane, and a robotic dragon with a gem in his head. Luckly Mel is around to scream at it…
With everyone back in good health, we return to talk about the Sixth Doctor and The Mysterious Planet… which may or may not be Earth (Spoiler, it’s Earth) blown out of place by some strangeness. Of course the real question is what that has to do with the fact the Doctor is on trail and Peri is nowhere to be found.
The Eighth Doctor recently picked up Mary Shelley from a lake house in Geneva, and has brought her to Vienna. However, he was not to meet up with Samson and Gemma Griffin as he intended, but instead meets an old foe from a twin world of Earth that is being used to demonstrate it’s chess playing prowess.
Your Mother always told you that television will rot your brain, well for once it turns out she was right. Though it’s not the TV that’s doing the melting, but an alien living in the air waves, stealing faces and feeding on 1950’s London. Luckily the Tenth Doctor and Rose are there to save the day, and a family they might run into along the way.
Strange things are happen in the old coal mines of Wales as toxic waste, giant maggots and evil computers are all coming together to challenge Jo, the Doctor and the crew of UNIT . Luckily the local commune is also the home of a number of scientists with an ecological bent who can help The Doctor save the day (and sweep Jo off of her feet).
