The clock is ticking for the Tenth Doctor and Martha, trapped on a space ship falling into a sun with a literal timer hanging over their heads. They will have to save the ship, help an alien and try not to let everyone (and themselves) die – all in 42(ish) minutes.
We return to the Key of Time, this time going to the very beginning with The Ribos Operation. Featuring Intergalactic con men, guards that sometimes are smart, a medieval world, and a lump of extremely valuable rock. All in a day’s work for the Fourth Doctor, K9 and Romana.
Back in London with Sarah Jane Smith and company investigating the strange going-ons at the local old folks home. Turns out they have a minor Nun infestation thanks to the local Abby, which is also the home of an alien Gorgon who really wants an old lady’s jewelry…. and she doesn’t care who gets turned into stone in the process.
After seven months of radio silence, the most recent Mars mission has returned to Earth and, of course, nothing is simple with the recovery and rescue of the crew. Radiation, kidnappings, running around and lots of other distractions keep the Doctor from saving the day. Luckily things turn out better than most of the other Mars missions in the show.
Davros is up to his old tricks again, trying to make another bit of hybrid Dalek (something that surely won’t end horribly for everyone involved). Fortunate that the Sixth Doctor and Peri are on the scene, and will get there eventually to take part in the plot… though it’s taking quite a while.
After finally escaping from the Divergent Universe with C’rizz, the Eighth Doctor and Charlie have made it back into ‘our’ universe. Their first stop is an unexpected visit to Earth, where an old enemy of the Doctor’s has apparently been waiting.
With the holidays upon us, we put in a visit with the Twelfth Doctor and Clara, dealing with alien head crabs, shared dreams and Santa Claus. Yes that Santa Claus. There are a lot more things going on then it seems at first glance, but the most important thing is… nobody likes the tangerines.
Gabriel Chase is a nice enough mansion during the day, but when night falls things get a bit weird. Crazy hunters, a Neanderthal butler, and a couple of weird aliens in the basement all come out at night. Into this walks the Seventh Doctor and Ace, and he’s telling her far less than usual about his current scheme. Just remember to avoid the soup… as well as the bananas.
After having a building dropped on top of them, the Torchwood team has found that time is not on their side. While they are rescued one by one, we get a glimpse back to what brought them to Torchwood in the first place (even if they didn’t want to be there).
Surprise and explosions are in store for the Doctor, Tegan, Nyssa and Adric as they take a turn and spelunking before taking a trip into space (and Adric gets to visit Chicxulub). Naturally there are monsters and Cybermen lurking around every corner, but when are they not?
