As The Doctor marshals the motley salvage crew outside, he realises Clara is still trapped within his malfunctioning ship, pursued by a dangerous group of ossified monsters. He has just 30 minutes to find Clara and save his TARDIS before it self-destructs


  • Clara glimpses the TARDIS swimming pool. (The Invasion of Time, The Eleventh Hour, Day of the Moon)
  • Clara hides in the TARDIS library. (The Eleventh Hour)
  • Inside the library, The Doctor has kept The History of the Time War, a book outlining the history of the Time War. (Rose, The Unquiet Dead)
  • Clara comes across The Doctor’s cot. (A Good Man Goes To War, The Gunpowder Plot) As the TARDIS leaks the past many voices can be heard. a) The voices are, in respective order:
  • The voice of Susan says, “I made up the name ‘TARDIS‘ from the initials: Time and Relative Dimension In Space.” (An Unearthly Child), The Third Doctor saying, “The TARDIS is dimensionally transcendental” and Jo, asking”What does that mean?”, the Eleventh Doctor saying, “You sexy thing!” then Idris (the TARDIS in human form) replying, “See, you do call me that! Is it my name?” followed by The Doctor’s exclamation of “You bet it’s your name!” (The Doctor’s Wife), The Fourth Doctor saying, “That’s trans-dimensional engineering. A key Time Lord discovery.” (The Robots of Death), the Tenth Doctor saying, “The assembled hordes of Genghis Khan couldn’t get through that door, and believe me they’ve tried.” (Rose)
  • Martha saying, “It’s just a box with that room crammed in!”. (Smith and Jones)
  • Amy saying, “We’re in space!”. (The Beast Below)
  • Ian asking, “It can move anywhere in time and space?” (An Unearthly Child)
  • This is the third time The Doctor has forced others into helping him by threatening to blow the TARDIS up, once again admitting that the TARDIS self-destruct is a hoax  (Attack of the Cybermen, Victory of the Daleks)
  • The Seventh Doctor’s umbrella appears. (Paradise Towers).
  • The Eye of Harmony is seen within the TARDIS. (The TV Movie)
  • The TARDIS’s cloister bell tolls after the TARDIS is pulled out of flight and suffers heavy damage to the console room. (Logopolis, Castrovalva, Resurrection of the Daleks, The TV Movie) The cloister bell was also heard in the preceding serial, (Hide) The Doctor once again steps through a crack in time and space to undo events.
