* ''Series/DoctorWho'' series 6 (or [[LongRunners 32]]) does this ''twice''. Firstly, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E7AGoodManGoesToWar A Good Man Goes To War]] is all about this, with the Doctor calling in several favours to raise an army to [[spoiler: rescue Amy and her baby]]. Secondly, in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E13TheWeddingOfRiverSong The Wedding of River Song]], River, Amy and Rory [[spoiler: construct a device to send a distress signal outside the collasping AlternateUniverse they're trapped in, asking the whole universe for help, as the Doctor is about to die. Literally billions of races across the universe agree to help]]. While this doesn't actively do anything, it breaks the Doctor out of his HeroicBSOD and reminds him that however much death and destruction he leaves in his wake, [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming he's still a hero, and his life is worth something]].
