Doctor Who (David Tennant) and companions Donna (Catherine Tate) and Martha (Freema Agyeman) land on planet Messaline, where Martha pretty much immediately falls into the hands of the Hath, an alien race, while the Doctor is cloned by the militaristic humans on the planet, and his female clone Jenny (Georgia Moffett), who comes out of the cloning apparatus a fully developed woman, and a perfect soldier. Because you know, the humans and the Hath have been at war for God-knows-how-long, fighting over the source of life, though nobody seems to really know what it is.

Interestingly, while Martha makes friends witht he Hath, and even gets one to help her find the Doctor and friends, the Doctor, Donna and Jenny - who finds her dad a tad too interesting - are imprisoned by human commander Cobb (Nigel Terry) ... but of course manage to break out and try to make it to the source before anyone else.

After much running from here to there and your typical sci-fi-perils, the Doctor and company reunite with Martha and make it to the source, which is nothing but a terraforming machine, and it turns out, the war between humans and Hath hasn't been going on forever but just for days, but since both races have been cloned several times since then, nobody knows the truth anymore. The Doctor though can make peace between the factions, but not before commander Cobb tries to shoot him and kills his daughter instead. The Doctor leaves Messaline heartbroken.

Of course, eventually young Jenny is revived, steals a shuttle and plans to go to other worlds to save civilisations on her own, just like dad does.

 

A rather weak episode of Doctor Who, at times very clumsily and unimaginatively directed, and based on a screenplay that is highly reminiscent of the classic series episode Face of Evil starring Tom Baker, but without that story's insight and hindsight. Several aspects not lifted from the old show make little sense though, and the whole subplot about the Doctor learning a lesson or two about parenting is annoying rather than anything else. Not really worth your time.

By the way, Georgia Moffett, who plays the Doctor's daughter (rather, his clone) in this one, is actually the daughter of former Doctor Who-actor Peter Davison.
