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 this ...
