Fearing the worst, The Doctor and Donna take the TARDIS back to Earth, and arrive in London to discover that despite their concerns everything seems to be fine. The Time Lord explains that if Rose is able to travel between dimensions then the walls of reality are beginning to crumble everything is in danger but he is not sure how. As he and Donna hurry back inside the ship they are unaware that a tremor is mounting outside. The turbulence increases as the roof tiles of houses begin to shake and fall something is happening
Inside the TARDIS Donna speaks with The Doctor, claiming that whatever threat may be approaching, at least he is about to see Rose again, and for that he should be glad. He agrees but his merriment is short-lived, seconds later the ship rocks violently. The Doctor hurries to the doors but upon opening them finds only space the Earth has gone

She calls on her alien computer, Mr Smith, who he tells her to go outside and look up at the sky.
Wilfred Mott and Sylvia Noble step outside of their house and onto the road. Wilf is convinced that aliens are at work once more, and his fears are confirmed when he and his daughter look skywards, amazed by what they see.
On another street, not far away, a piercing screech is heard and in a flash of light Rose Tyler appears, brandishing a large gun. She proclaims that the trouble has only just begun and then looks to the heavens, where a collection of new planets has appeared. The Earth has moved
