12. Bad Wolf


The three TARDIS travellers find themselves separated, waking up with temporary amnesia in various reality television and game shows. The Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) finds himself in a Big Brother house hosted by the "Davinadroid" (Davina McCall), Rose (Billie Piper) on the set of The Weakest Link hosted by the "Anne Droid" (Anne Robinson), and Jack (John Barrowman) facing the female androids Trine-e and Zu-Zana (Trinny Woodall and Susannah Constantine) who offer to give him a brand new image, à la What Not to Wear. All three find out that the shows are more fatal than their twenty-first century counterparts. On The Weakest Link and Big Brother, losing contestants are seemingly disintegrated, while on What Not to Wear, participants undergo brutal cosmetic surgery. Jack and the Doctor escape from their shows, the Doctor bringing along a contestant called Lynda (Jo Joyner), and discover they are on the former Satellite Five, which the Doctor previously visited in "The Long Game", now under the control of the Badwolf Corporation. Lynda is instrumental in filling in the gaps in the narrative. She explains to the Doctor that a hundred years ago the satellite's broadcasts suddenly stopped, and as a result, progress on Earth halted. The Doctor realises that he was responsible for the change. The Doctor, Jack, and Lynda search for Rose. They find her as she loses in the final round of The Weakest Link, and is promptly disintegrated. They are arrested, but escape their capture and travel to the control room on Floor 500. There they meet the Controller (Martha Cope), a cybernetic human, who obliquely tells the Doctor that contest losers are not disintegrated, but 'transmatted' to an empty point in space. The Doctor and Jack discover, to their horror, hundreds of ships containing 400,000 Daleks. Detected, the Daleks open a communication channel to the Doctor, who resolves to rescue Rose and then exterminate the Dalek race once and for all. In response, the Daleks' last action before the episode ends is to start their invasion of Earth.
