In an old and abandoned house, Sally Sparrow (Carey Mulligan) finds a message under the wallpaper directed to her but written some 38 years ago ... or in other words before she was even born. Later, she loses her best friend, Kathy (Lucy Gaskell) in the same house but receives a letter telling her that Kathy was sucked back to 1920 ...

Sally reports the whole thing to the police, and police inspector Shipton (Michael Obiora) tells her that several people have disappeared in the house ... but soon after he tells her that, he disappears himself, and all Sally can find out is that everything might have to do with an old London police pohnebox (yes, Doctor Who fans, it is of course the Doctor's time-and-space machine, the TARDIS) and with statues of angels that seem to be constantly moving. And it seems that everything has to do with the Easter Eggs (hidden content) on all the DVD's she owns on which a strange character called the Doctor (David Tennant) seems to explain everything ... so together with Kathy's brother Larry (Finlay Robertson), Sally tries to unlock the secret and manages to actually talk to the Doctor on the DVD, learning that the angelic statues are in fact assassins from another world who suck people back into the past but who by default cannot move as long as you look at them - but should you blink or turn away, you are done for ... and the Doctor asks her to send his TARDIS back to him - which Sally and Larry manage to do in the end, this way also forcing the angels to look at one another and forever neutralizing each other ...

But how did everything fit together ?

Actually, Larry was transcribing the whole dialogue of the Doctor on DVD and Sally, jsut like a good conspiracy theorist would, and the Doctor gets his hands on the transcripts when Sally meets him after her whole adventure but before he was sucked back into 1969 (time travel is a tricky business) and hands him the transcript for later use. And it all got onto the DVDs thanks to cop Shipton, who - once also back in 1969 - became friends with the Doctor and went into movie and later DVD-publishing ...

Confused ?

Might make more sense on film than in writing actually ... sorry.

 

Maybe the best Doctor Who story of the series' third season as it does away with the series' usual formula, instead plays with the key element - time travel - of the series itself, even if that means having to shift the attention from the series' leads to a bunch of new characters who might never be seen again. That said, the episode is not perfect, there are some really cheesy moments in it, but it's probably as good as it gets ...
