Donna Noble ist zurück in London, um Zeit mit ihrer Familie zu verbringen und von ihren Abenteuern mit dem Doktor zu berichten. Ihr Grossvater, Wilfred, ist besonders gut gelaunt - er hatte einen neuen Stern am Himmel entdeckt, der daraufhin nach ihm benannt wurde. Er nimmt den Doktor, als Ehrengast, mit zu der Benennungszeremonie. Doch der Doktor ist misstrauisch, auch über andere Veränderungen, die man am Himmel beobachten kann. Vor allem dieser eine Stern dort hinten. Nein, nicht der. Der da, ein Stück weiter links ... Kurz darauf wird die Weltbevölkerung von einer mysteriösen, lilafarbenen Energiematerie kontrolliert, die die Persönlichkeit ändert und die die Menschen seltsamen Handlungen zwingt. Eine alles verzehrende, finstere Macht aus dunkler Vorzeit ist zur Erde gekommen ... und keiner kann sich davor schützen! Der britische Schauspieler und freiberufliche Autor Gary Russell wurde vor allem durch seine Hauptrolle als Dick Kirrin in der Kinderserie FÜNF FREUNDE Ende der Siebziger bekannt. Als Erwachsener verfolgte er jedoch andere Ziele und so wechselte er nach ein paar Auftritten, u. a. auch im James-Bond-Film 'Octopussy', ins Lager der Schriftsteller. Russell ist ein Whovian durch und durch. 1992 bis 1995 war er der Herausgeber des 'Doctor Who Magazine'. Im Jahr 2000 schrieb er ein Sachbuch über die Entstehung des ersten offiziellen DOCTOR WHO-Spielfilms. Seitdem schreibt er fast ausschliesslich an Romanen und Hörbüchern zur britischen Kult-TV-Serie.

When you have been wandering the cosmos from one end of eternity to another for nearly a thousand years, what’s your philosophy of life, the universe, and everything? Doctor Who is 50 years’ old in 2013. Through its long life on television and beyond it has inspired much debate due to the richness and complexity of the metaphysical and moral issues that it poses. This is the first in-depth philosophical investigation of Doctor Who in popular culture. From 1963’s An Unearthly Child through the latest series, it considers continuity and change in the pictures that the programme paints of the nature of truth and knowledge, science and religion, space and time, good and evil, including the uncanny, the problem of evil, the Doctor’s complex ethical motivations, questions of persisting personal identity in the Time Lord processes of regeneration, the nature of time travel through ‘wibbley-wobbley, timey-wimey stuff, how quantum theory affects our understanding of time; and the nature of the mysterious and irrational in the Doctor’s universe.
