Doctor Who (voiced by David Tennant) and Martha (Freema Agyeman) have
just defeated evil Balthazar (Anthony Stewart Head) when they learn about
his latest evil plan from his robot bird Caw (Toby Longworth): To find the
three datachips leading to the Infinite, a legendary lost spaceship
which is said to fulfill anyone's heart's desire - which of course could
make Balthazar the most powerful being in the world.
So the Doctor and Martha find chip number one with Captain Kaliko (Liza
Tarbuck), a futuristic pirate who attacks futuristic, walking oil rigs in
the desert, chip number two with an armsdealer (Paul Clayton) who is also
a lizard and who wants to earn himself a fortune by provoking war between
giant insects and humans at an earth colony - with the insects being his
customers - and chip number three with Gourney Stephen Greif), a prison
gouvernor who is actually a former inmate having gained control of the
However, someone is always close behind the Doctor and Martha and kills
off those who had the chips - and this someone is no other than Balthazar
who has used Caw to make the Doctor look for the chips (which the Doctor
is of course more capable to than anyone else) and now he wants to use the
Doctor's time-and-space-machine the TARDIS to get to the Infinite. And
once the Doctor has set the coordinates, he doesn't need him anymore and
throws him out, leaving Martha alone with the villain.
Soon enough, Martha and Balthazar have reached the Infinite and her
heart's desire is fulfilled when she gets to kiss the Doctor and his when
he finds tons of gold - but actually the Infinite shows only illusions and
soon enough the Doctor (the real one, Martha's Doc was just an
imagination) arrives riding through the galaxy on Caw, and he ultimately
destroys the Infinite and takes Balthazar prisoner ...
The first fully animated adventure of Doctor Who ... and
it's quite a disappointment: Sure, there are some nice ideas in this one
like the walking oilrigs or the insects' city of dung, which would be on
too large a scale for the live action series, but on the other hand, the
character animation is way off, and the characters themselves lack to show
any emotions at all. And on a story level, the whole thing is very naive
and a tad too straighforward while at the same time being highly
reminiscent of the show's Key
To Time-storyarc from almost 30 years ago, without giving the
individual segments (some of which are quite interesting) any chance to
properly develop. Rather a pity, this could have been more.
