Aliens/Enemies: Daleks & Davros
As Davros and the Daleks threaten the entire universe, the Doctor's companions join forces. But the prophecy declares that one of them will die...
The Tenth Doctor
Captain Jack Harkness
Sarah Jane Smith
The Doctor is regenerating inside the TARDIS. Once his body is healed, he halts the transformation by transferring the remaining energy into his severed hand. The TARDIS is captured by the Daleks and transported to the Crucible, the Daleks' flagship. Powerless, the Doctor and his previous companions Jack Harkness and Rose Tyler leave the TARDIS, but Donna Noble is mysteriously locked in. The Daleks send the TARDIS into the molten core of the Crucible; as it is being destroyed, Donna collapses by the Doctor's severed hand, and touches it. The stored energy flows into her then back into the hand, forming a new Doctor, who saves the TARDIS from destruction. Meanwhile, Torchwood employees Gwen Cooper and Ianto Jones find safety in an impenetrable time bubble; Sarah Jane Smith is saved from a Dalek extermination by Rose's ex-boyfriend Mickey Smith and mother Jackie Tyler and surrender themselves to get aboard the Crucible; and Martha Jones teleports to a Schloss sixty miles from Nuremburg which houses a UNIT station.
Aboard the Crucible, the Doctor and Rose are taken to Davros, creator of the Daleks. Davros explains that the twenty-seven stolen planets form a compression field for energy which can cancel the electrical energy of atoms. The resulting "reality bomb" has the potential to destroy all matter in every universe; reality itself would be destroyed. The only life forms that would survive the destruction would be the daleks, safe inside the crucible. After the device is tested, the Daleks receive two transmissions: Sarah, Mickey, Jack, and Jackie threaten to use an explosive crystal (or Warp Star) to destroy the Crucible; and Martha threatens to use the Osterhagen Key — a last resort device which would destroy Earth. The Daleks teleport all five to Davros' chamber; Davros uses their actions to challenge the Doctor:
"The man who abhors violence but this is the truth: you take ordinary people and fashion them into weapons. How many have died in your name? The Doctor, the man who keeps on running, never looking back because he dare not, out of shame. This is my final victory, Doctor. I have shown you yourself."
Davros prepares to detonate the reality bomb as the TARDIS materalises in the room. The other Doctor and Donna charge out and try to attack Davros but are quickly immobilized. Seconds before the bomb detonates, Donna becomes imbued with Time Lord knowledge. She uses a control panel to stop the detonation and disable Davros' guards. The two Doctors and Donna return the stolen planets to their original locations; Davros asks the precognitive Dalek Caan why he did not foresee this. Caan explains that he realised the Daleks' evil and conspired to destroy the entire race.
Before Earth can be relocated, the control panel is destroyed by the Supreme Dalek. As the Doctor prepares the TARDIS, the other Doctor fulfills Caan's prophecy and destroys the Daleks, triggering the flagship's destruction. The Doctor offers to save Davros; he refuses, labelling the Doctor as "the Destroyer of Worlds". The companions flee into the TARDIS before the Crucible is destroyed and—aided by Sarah's computer Mr Smith, her robotic dog K-9, and the spatio-temporal rift in Cardiff—"tow" the Earth back into its original orbit.
In the dénouement of the episode, the Doctor parts ways with his companions: Sarah returns home to her son Luke; Martha and Mickey leave with Jack; and the Doctor returns Rose and Jackie to the alternative universe they were trapped in in "Doomsday". The Doctor forces the other Doctor to stay in the parallel universe as punishment for committing genocide and to requite Rose's love. After departing, Donna becomes overwhelmed by the Time Lord knowledge. The Doctor is forced to wipe her mind, and explains to her mother Sylvia and grandfather Wilfred Mott that Donna must never remember him, reverting to the very different character she was before meeting the Doctor. As the Doctor leaves, Wilfred promises that he will nev
