On Rose's (Billie Piper) request, the Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) steers his timemachine back to 1987, the day her father (Shaun Dingwall) died, because he died all alone in a hit-&-run accident, & she just wants to be with him, since she has actually never known him, having been a baby back then.

But then, she can only helplessly watch anyhow as he dies, so the Doctor, against all laws of timetravel, even gives her a second chance ... but this time around, she saves her father from being run over, bad idea, since now she has created a paradoxon, & there are some carnivorous, pterodactyl like beings sent out to neutralize the paradoxon ... even if that means devouring all mankind & bringing about the end of the world. & this time it seems even the Doctor can't help, since his police-phonebox style timemachine has turned into an actual phonebox.

The Doctor figures the best thing to do is hide in a church, which he does with Rose, her father, her mum (Camille Coduri), & guests of a wedding reception. But it seems everything fails, & when Rose holds her baby self (Julia Joyce), this creates even more of a paradoxon, letting in one of the monsters that promptly devours the Doctor ... but by now, Rose's dad has found out everything, that Rose is actually his daughter from the future, that he is actually doomed to die that day, & that the only way to end the horror would be to run out & throw himself in front of the car which was originally supposed ot kill him & which now circles the church in a time-loop.& even though he has always been aloser, not the perfect man his mum always made him to be after his death, he now does the right thing & gives his life so time can return to normal, Rose does get a chance to be at his side when he dies - & even the Doctor is released from his state of being devoured.

 

A very silly story, with much cheesy stuff going on ... yet somehow it works perfectly, thanks to good storytelling, a direction that doesn't linger to heavily on the kitsch, & some nice monsters thrown in just for good measure.
