sypnosis

The TARDIS materialises in Martha’s flat. The Doctor tells her that They had agreed – one trip and home. It is about twelve hours after they left. Martha’s phone rings, but she does not pick it up; it is her mother Francine, saying that her sister Tish is on the news.

Martha turns the television on and, alongside Tish, an elderly man, Professor Richard Lazarus, announces that tonight he "will change what it means to be human." The Doctor says goodbye to Martha and, oblivious to her upset, steps into the TARDIS. It dematerialises, but quickly rematerialises. The Doctor reemerges, saying, "No, I’m sorry, did he say he was going to change what it meant to be human?"

NOTES

  1. The Doctor remembers the last time he wore his evening suit, in Rise of the Cybermen / Age of Steel.
  2. Martha arrives back on Earth shortly after she left in Smith and Jones.
  3. Mr Saxon is referred to in this episode as someone with an interest in Lazarus’ experiments. In Smith and Jones it is established that he is a politician. He was first mentioned in Love & Monsters and then again The Runaway Bride. He will appear in person during the series finale The Sound of Drums / Last of the Time Lords.
  4. The Doctor talks of reversing the polarity, something he did frequently in his third persona.
