Donna Noble is back home in London, catching up with her family and generally giving them all the gossip about her journeys. Her grandfather is especially overjoyed - he's discovered a new star and had it named after him. He takes the Doctor, as his special guest, to the naming ceremony.

But the Doctor is suspicious about some of the other changes he can see in Earth's heavens. Particularly that bright star, right there. No not that one, that one, there, on the left...

The world's population is slowly being converted to a new path, a new way of thinking. Something is coming to Earth, an ancient force from the Dark Times. Something powerful, angry, and all-consuming...

Featuring the Tenth Doctor and Donna as played by David Tennant and Catherine Tate in the hit Doctor Who series from BBC Television.

probably a bluff,’ he said to Wilf. ‘They wanted me alive, remember?’ ‘We’re in this together,’ Wilf said. ‘When I was in the paras, we never left anyone behind.’ The Doctor nodded. ‘Oh well, now we’re all here. Got a firm’s coach?’ ‘We walk,’ said one of the older people, an American woman. ‘It’s a long way,’ Donna said. One of the younger men shrugged. ‘It’ll keep us all fit, then.’ And they began the walk across London. Everywhere they went, little groups of people were together,

the missing chunk of wall where Caitlin had been standing. ‘Now, I doubt it can bring back the dead, so I’m hoping it goes for the easiest target, the path of least resistance.’ Wilf followed the Doctor’s point of view to Netty, stood smiling serenely beside him. ‘No…’ ‘It’s the most likely vessel.’ Wilf was shaking with sadness. ‘But it’s my Netty. We were going to see the world, go on a cruise, do South America, Canada, the Indian Ocean. Doctor, she’s my life. I never thought anyone could

a familiar voice from behind her. ‘I wondered if we’d see you today.’ Donna didn’t bother turning around. ‘Hello, Mum,’ she said. ‘Oh yes, “Hello, Mum” – because that’s enough isn’t it. One minute the air’s choking with exhaust fumes, the next the sky’s on fire, and that’s it. No idea where my only daughter is. No calls, no texts, not even a message sent to your granddad, so he can shut me up. Nothing.’ Donna stopped in the street and turned to face her mother, automatically tugging two of the
