The one with fish fingers and custard.



The Doctor technobabbles and bluffs, until he manages to get his sonic screwdriver working again, at which point he and his erstwhile captor bust a move. But the TARDIS won't let him in because it's repairing itself, and . . . that's when he notices that the wooden shed he destroyed the night he met Amelia has been rebuilt. [[ExactlyExtyYearsAgo About twelve years ago]]. Incredulous, he turns to the young woman beside him, and realises that ''she'' is Amelia, [[SheIsAllGrownUp all grown up.]] And not a police officer at all, but a professional kissogram. And ''very'' cross at him for making her wait for two-thirds of her life.

They walk over to the village centre, and all the speakers in the area are spawning the same message in every language -- "PRISONER ZERO WILL VACATE THE HUMAN RESIDENCE OR THE HUMAN RESIDENCE WILL BE INCINERATED". But if all they want is for Prisoner Zero to come out of the house, why is the message broadcasting in the village, and around the world? Unless by "residence" they mean "planet". Amelia (now going by Amy) takes the Doctor to a neighbour's home, where the Doctor gets recognised by a guy called Jeff as Amy's infamous imaginary friend. The Doctor decides to get back into the open, trying to figure something out. At which point the aliens block out the sun, and then turn the block transparent to make a force field. People take pictures and Website/{{Facebook}} their mates without realising they're going to die in twenty minutes and counting.

Amy and Rory have to hurry to the hospital. Rory explains that the monster has taken the shape of his coma patient, and apparently shape-shifting abominations need psychic links to living beings. Therefore, it will go to the hospital for more prey and more disguises. The Doctor steals Rory's phone and Jeff's laptop. [[TheInternetIsForPorn Which contains lots of implied porn.]] "Blimey! Get a girlfriend!"

The Doctor quickly writes a harmless virus designed to grab the aliens' attention, hacks into the international red alert conference call with the phone, [[UsefulNotes/FermatsLastTheorem quickly proves how much of a genius he is]] and makes Jeff convince the world's nations to implement the virus while he runs off with the phone again.

Amy and Rory arrive at the hospital to find chaos. They phone the Doctor to tell him, then run upstairs, as Amy still looks like a police officer (admittedly slightly {{Stripperific}}), which gets them in. Once in the ICU, we learn that the Doctor has nicked a fire engine and that a woman and her daughters have escaped from the creature unscathed. One problem -- the wrong mouths are spouting the wrong voices again. Amy and Rory back away slowly, and the alien realises its mistake. Rory and Amy run to the actual ward, and the Doctor arrives with barely a second to spare, crashing in through the window with the fire engine's ladder.

That computer virus has infected everything in the world. Every screen shows "0". Now the Atraxi know that Prisoner Zero is here. And now they're tracking the signal to Rory's phone. The Doctor promptly thwarts the prisoner by [=SMSing=] all the photos Rory has taken of the coma patient disguises of the alien.

Back at the country house, the Doctor wakes up, cuffed to a radiator. A woman in a rather risqué policewoman's uniform is standing over him, apparently calling for backup. Amelia hasn't lived here in a long time, she says. The Doctor piques her interest in . . . a creepy door she's never noticed before.

"Don't go in there!" the Doctor protests. He gets ignored. She goes in -- it's totally ordinary. Run down and filthy, but . . . ordinary all the same. Until she sees . . . the sonic screwdriver, which had been mysteriously missing when the Doctor woke up from his meeting with Mr Cricket-Bat. It's in the secret room, lying in a puddle of goo. Which could totally be explained by having rolled under the door. If it wasn't on the table.

They walk over to the village centre, and all the speakers in the area are spawning the same message in every language -- "PRISONER ZERO WILL VACATE THE HUMAN RESIDENCE OR THE HUMAN RESIDENCE WILL BE INCINERATED." But if all they want is for Prisoner Zero to come out of the house, why is the message broadcasting in the village, and around the world? Unless . . . by "residence" they mean "planet". Amelia (now going by Amy) takes the Doctor to a neighbour's home, where the Doctor gets recognised by a guy called Jeff as Amy's infamous imaginary friend.

The Doctor gets his [[StaggeredZoom memory]] working overtime: he saw something weird a second ago. When the sun went out, everyone was photographing the sky . . . everyone except Rory, who was photographing Barking Man with Dog. It turns out that the man looks exactly like one of his coma patients, and this isn't the first time this has happened. He's gathering photographic evidence to prove he's not insane. He's also Amy's boyfriend, and absolutely speechless at suddenly seeing her imaginary friend come to life. She always made him dress up as the Doctor when they played as kids, and she went through four psychiatrists trying to get over her childhood experience, and now he's ''here'' and a bit too busy to have a chat and explain everything.

Prisoner Zero switches to a different disguise. Since it needs months of proximity to build up a connection to a physical memory, it's able to disguise itself as . . . the memory of little Amy and her "Raggedy Doctor". The Doctor sees his new face for the first time. Amy faints and the Doctor and Rory rush to her. The Doctor convinces comatose Amy to fight the monster's mental link by imagining its true form, which she saw behind the scary door. It works.

At night, Amy Pond wakes up, having heard the unmistakable sound of the TARDIS. She runs downstairs to meet the Doctor. He decided to keep the stolen clothes, figuring it's a nice reward for having saved the Earth a billion times over by now. Also, it's been two years since he last saw Amy. He thought it was a few hours. Again. She's appropriately pissed off at him for that but, regardless, he invites her to be his next companion. Amy agrees to come with him, so long as he can have her back by tomorrow morning for an unspecified appointment. And eventually, they leave.

When the Doctor leaves her for, in his words "Five minutes" (she says that "everyone says that", hinting something might have happened to her mum and dad), she grows up with a lingering resentment and a rather short temper. We finally see her shell start to crack when the Doctor invites her into the TARDIS for the first time, confirming that everything he told her as a child was really true.
