At a fortune teller (Chipo Chung), Donna (Catherine Tate) is attacked
by some parasite that lives on alternative time ... and suddenly, she is
pushed back in time to a spot before she has even met the Doctor (David
Tennant), and makes a decision that makes sure she never will ... which
costs the good Doctor his life (during the events of The
Runaway Bride). From here on the story explores the effects of all
of the Doctor's earthbound adventures hadn't the Doctor been there,
starting with the disappearance of a hospital (see Smith
and Jones) the crash of the Titanic II into London (see Voyage
of the Damned) and so on ... resulting in the fact that without
Donna at the Doctor's side, the world would be a much worse place. But
thank God Rose (Billie Piper) is on hand to try to save the world in the
Doctor's spirit - which she isn't too good at, but hey, that's a pretty
tall order to begin with - and set the timeline right again, with Donna
actually meeting the Doctor ... but to do that, Donna has to go back in
time and give her own life - give her own life to be pretty much reborn as
the Doctor's companion ...
The concept of this episode - a what
would happen if-story - is of course very interesting, but
unfortunately, the episode as such is less so, the whole narrative lacks
any actual build-up and instead seems to hurry from one reference point to
the next. That veteran Doctor Who director Graeme Harper
never really tries to capture the very grim atmosphere of the story at
hand doesn't help one bit either, of course, neither does the fact that
there are many leaps in reason if you start questioning the on-screen
gongs-on. On the plus side of course Billie Piper gives a pretty good
performance (even her lisp in her first few scenes sonds rather weird),
and Catherine Tate's naive yet energetic character has never been captured
quite as beautifully. If only the rest of the episode would live up to
