The plucky and rather rude bride -- one Donna Noble, of Chiswick -- demands to be put back on Earth ''right now, damn it.'' She's getting married! Unfortunately, our old friends [[Recap/DoctorWho2005CSTheChristmasInvasion the pilot fish]] have come back to help the MonsterOfTheWeek by kidnapping Donna. Fortunately, the Doctor convinces her to jump into his TARDIS out of a speeding car. Which is quite an accomplishment, seeing as the Doctor just told Donna that his last companion girl is now "gone" and she found Rose's jacket in the TARDIS, meaning she's pretty convinced that the Doctor is a deranged serial killer ([[RunningGag from Mars]]). The (still Christmas-themed) pilot fish also crash the wedding reception, which is being held without Donna, who is rather indignant upon discovering this.

* DeathGlare: The Doctor gives a pretty scathing one to Donna after she asks about Rose's jacket in the TARDIS. It shuts her up.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: On seeing the massive hole in the Torchwood lab going all the way down to the center of the Earth, Donna wonders if there are dinosaurs down there (because she saw a TV show with something like that once). The Doctor is just completely dumbfounded by that one.

* InternalHomage: Donna ends up in the TARDIS in the same way companion Lucie Miller does in ''AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho''. Just like Lucie, she's not the least bit impressed by the Doctor. (Lucie assumed he was a "hippie ponce", while Donna sees Rose's jacket on a railing and assumes he's a deranged serial killer.)

** The Racnoss Webstar bears a striking resemblance to the Cylon Basestar of the re-imagined ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}''. Both ships are made with Y shapes stacked on each other. The names are also quite similar.

** There is also Donna's story about how Lance gave her a cup of coffee when they first met, because later it's revealed that the huon particles are being stored in water.



* ItsAlwaysSpring: It's supposed to be Christmas, but the episode was filmed in warm weather as evidenced by the green trees seen during the car chase on the highway.

The Doctor realizes a bit too late that Donna's awfully quiet, and next thing we know, she and Lance are tied up in a web over the tunnel to the ship. The Empress messes with them for a bit, before she decides that she doesn't approve of Lance's treatment of Donna. So, like any sane, rational alien lady, she cuts him down -- dropping him into the pit for her children. She monologues a bit, before turning and revealing one of the pilot fish as a masked Doctor, who gets Donna down from the web. Guess what? The Doctor has [[RunningGag pockets!]] The Doctor gives the Empress one last chance, but turns out to be ''very'' firm on his new "one chance only" rule he instated earlier this series. He kills the entire nest of Racnoss by flooding it [[NoKillLikeOverkill and setting everything on fire at the same time]], completely horrifying Donna. Oh, and draining the Thames. She tells him to ''stop and get out'', and ([[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E11TurnLeft as we learn much later]]) does the universe a huge favour in the process.
