The Graske (Jimmy Vee) teleports into the TARDIS to warn the Doctor about a space portal that promptly opens in the TARDIS linking it to the Royal Albert Hall during a Proms concert. The Doctor converses with the audience revealing that he played the tuba at the very first Proms, making a joke about Beethoven's deafness and implying that he has met him. The Doctor sends his own sheet music through the portal to the orchestra to have his symphony, Ode to the Universe, played by them. As the orchestra plays the Doctor's symphony conducted by the Doctor himself with his sonic screwdriver, the Graske steals the Doctor's water pistol and uses the portal to get to Earth. The Graske sprays some of the audience in the Royal Albert Hall with water before being pulled back through the portal by the Doctor who reversed the polarity of the neutron flow. The Doctor reverses the teleport and sends the Graske to the other side of the galaxy. The Doctor tells the audience to listen out for the "Music of the Spheres" that is all around them before returning to the TARDIS console to close the portal.

Moments later the patient is cured, sitting in bed holding a bunch of flowers. Hame claims the nurses never loose a patient, for they are here to help. Suddenly there is a cry of a woman screaming for help, followed by the screeching whine of a cat. All is not as it seems in the hospital…
An alien pod hurtles through space, heading for Earth. It crash-lands in a ball of flame somewhere in the Scottish Highlands, apparently unseen.

He calls Rose and tells her there are strange goings on back on Earth; there has been increased activity at a nearby school, including a lot of strange lights in the sky. He tells her that he needs her and the Doctor; there is something out there.

She calls out a mayday signal but there is nobody left to hear it.

Elsewhere, on an ornate mantelpiece above a fireplace a clock is ticking away, until suddenly its face cracks and time stops…
On a computer screen; a message has been received by a group known as ‘The Preachers’ from another figure known as ‘Gemini’. It details that the subject of the report is John Lumic, founder of Cybus Industries (est. 1982).
It reports the main information on Cybus Industries; such as the profit margin of $78 billion in 2001, and a report from South America that in 2004 259,996 people went missing from within its borders. Finally it reports the Lumic is working on his “ultimate upgrade” and then goes on to say that he must be stopped.
Across the globe metal men are preparing to disembark as part of the upgrade and as the report concludes a figure resembling Mickey sits in a large blue van, watching the screen before him.

She shows him a series of artifacts that led them to find the planet, including an ancient book of strange symbols apparently detailing the planet’s myths. Walker asks to know more about them but the woman dismisses them, telling him he can overcome them as he is a big strong man with a top ship and a top crew.
She bids him goodbye and good luck and as he goes he passes a slave creature holding a translation orb. It watches him go before claiming “the beast shall rise from the pit…”
One of the Ood passes a member of the sanctuary base a box of possessions belonging to the late Captain Walker. He takes them and seals the box but reopens it when the lights dim and the computers begin to claim that “he shall awake”.
He takes out a book containing a series of ancient symbols and as he looks the computers around him go mad, spouting that “the beast is awake and he shall rise from the pit”. Doors begin to lock themselves and the book bursts into flames, reducing itself into dust.
The young man tries to open a nearby door but it is locked tight, and all it can do is tell him the “he is coming…”
Some time later the young man sits in a swivel chair in the returned-to-normal room. A young woman enters and tries to talk to him but gets no reply. She turns his chair around to find him lifeless; a series of the ancient symbols etched to his skin…
A heavy-breathing man holding a cane sits in a high-backed chair staring at a laptop before him. As he drums his fingers on the smooth surface of the device he stares at the website it displays; an appeal from an organization called L.I.N.D.A asking for information on a man called the Doctor.
He clicks on a link regarding becoming a member of L.I.N.D.A but it proves fruitless, L.I.N.D.A is a secret organization. He instead takes out an alien looking device and aims it at the screen which changes, instead tracking down the location the website is run from.

Like all great science fiction shows, there are kernels of truth and nuggets of science fact scattered throughout the incredible “Doctor Who” universe. In this special, we are going to explore these dynamic “Doctor Who” moments where science fiction and science fact converge and mingle.
A special celebrating the women of the Doctor Who universe.
A special exploring the mind-bending time-travels of the Doctor.
A special visiting all the fabulous (and not-so-fabulous) locales of Doctor Who.
While a voice-over has the Doctor talking to the Ponds on the phone, he is shown with a surfboard, running away from Sontarans. When he is trapped, he throws the surfboard down into some lava in order to escape. He also recalls the memory of meeting Mata Hari in a Paris hotel room and recording some backing vocals for a rap song. He says that he should visit them any day, if he can get the TARDIS to fly there properly. The Ponds are then shown; Rory deletes the Doctor's phone message and they have a toast to the Doctor.
The TARDIS materializes inside Amy and Rory's house, and the Doctor bursts into their bedroom, waking them up. In a great lather the Doctor tells them that the world is endangered and that they need to save the planet now. Suddenly, he realises that they have no idea what he's on about, and goes to leave since he's obviously arrived before any of these Earth-shattering events are happening. After Amy questions his decision, he tells them not to worry, and that everything is safe. While saying this, some clips from "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" are shown, with the Doctor, the Ponds, and others, all facing peril. The Doctor then wishes them a good night's sleep, and flies away. Unable to go back to sleep after this interlude of foreboding doom from the Doctor, the couple are seen in bed staring at the ceiling while Rory remarks "I really hate it when he does that".
Rory walks out of his room, and into the bathroom, only to be shocked by something and immediately walking out and shutting the door. He checks again inside the bathroom, still shocked. Eventually, Amy walks up to him, and requests to enter the bathroom. Rory reluctantly allows her to enter. Inside, they find an Ood sitting on their toilet, asking if they're in any need of assistance. Rory states "Ood on the loo", and Amy simply replies with "Yeah", and nodding.
The Doctor learns from the Ponds of the Ood, with the Doctor revealing that he wondered where he had gone; instead of wandering the TARDIS, as the Doctor had thought, he had gone into the Ponds' house during his last visit. The Ponds are then shown eating a cooked breakfast while the Doctor explains on the phone that the Ood was rescued from the middle of the Androvax conflict and was being transported back to the Ood Sphere. When the Doctor asks if the Ood was behaving, clips of the Ood performing housework are shown including making the bed, dispensing Amy's laptop and Rory's lunch for their "work day experience", hanging up laundry and cleaning the windows. When Rory questions the Doctor on the Ood's belief he is their butler, he is reassured that the Ood is "conditioned to serve" and the best thing to do is to allow him to continue. The Doctor ends the phone call as there's trouble in the TARDIS and as the Ponds hear the Doctor battling with it, they discuss their guilt at the Ood's service.
The Doctor calls the Ponds, asking them how they are, while fixing the light on the top of the TARDIS. He tells them that he dropped the Ood off back home, rode a horse in 11th century Coventry and possibly invented pasta. He also says that he visited them once, but they weren't there. The Doctor then asks if they're all right; then, answering his own question, says that he's foolish to worry and "The Ponds are always all right". While saying this, a silent clip of Rory walking away from their house in anger is shown, as well as a clip of Amy walking after him, yelling "I hate you", and then crying. The next clip shows the Doctor saying goodbye; then he seems to change his mind, points the sonic screwdriver at the phone and deletes the message that he'd just left. We then see Amy walk inside her house, place some items down and walk up to the phone, seeing if there's a message, which there isn't. She then says that they need their "raggedy man", as she referred to him as in "The Eleventh Hour"; more specifically, that she, personally, needs the Doctor.
Christmas Eve, 1892, and the falling snow is the stuff of fairy tales. When the fairytale becomes a nightmare and a chilling menace threatens Earth, an unorthodox young governess, Clara, calls on the Doctor for help. But the Doctor is in mourning, reclusive and determined not to engage in the problems of the universe. As old friends return, will the Doctor really abandon humankind, or will he fight to save the world and Christmas from the icy clutches of this mysterious menace?
On her first trip in the TARDIS, Amy questions the Eleventh Doctor on how the time machine works, why it takes the shape of a police box, and whether he is an alien. The Doctor answers most of her questions, and then opens the TARDIS doors to reveal that thy are in deep space. When Amy doesn't believe what she is seeing, the Doctor pushes her though the doors.
As Amy continues her attempts to seduce him, the Doctor explains to her true reason why he travels with a companion. She tricks him into asking the TARDIS to display visual records of previous inhabitants, before he decides to go find Rory at his bachelor party.
