The one where Hitler gets locked in a closet.



Melody ''loves'' her new body. It's so ''mature'' ("[[ShoutOut hello,]] [[Film/TheGraduate Benjamin]]!"), with hair that just doesn't ''stop'', and a whole new colour-scheme to work with. She doesn't know why Rory is rambling about some girl named River, though. With that, she disappears to go weigh herself.

->'''Rory:''' (''completely stunned'') Does anybody else find this day just a bit difficult? I'm getting a sort of banging in my head.\\

The Doctor's dying in the TARDIS, and asks for a voice interface. The voice interface hologram shows his own body. He'd prefer to see [[TheWoobie someone he likes]] while he's dying. Not Rose -- guilt. Or Martha -- still guilt. Or Donna -- more guilt. There has to be someone in the universe that he hasn't "messed up". The voice interface finally settles on an image of Amelia Pond, while she was young and he was a story. He clings to the image and shows Amelia great affection. The interface keeps reminding him that it's not Amelia. His system has been contaminated by the poison of the Judas Tree, his regeneration is disabled and there's no cure. He will be dead in thirty-two minutes. He'll be fine for thirty-one, and then dead one minute later. The Doctor loses hope, but then he is inspired by the sweet memory of fish-fingers and custard.

Melody goes to a fancy party and forces the diners to undress at gunpoint, to provide her with a new set of clothes. Amy and Rory arrive outside, closely followed by the robot. The Teselecta intercepts them and miniaturises them, taking them on board the robot. The robot takes on Amy's appearance. However, the Teselecta is a group of {{Reasonable Authority Figure}}s, and Amy and Rory are quickly given wristbands which allow them to live, and since they're Melody's family, they get to see her files.

Melody is merrily trying on Nazi outfits when the robot arrives. She's about to be killed, but the TARDIS appears. This time, it's the Doctor who asks "Doctor who?" He's leaning on a cane, dressed in an impeccable tails tuxedo, complete with a top hat.

He's cross.

The Doctor tries to convince them not to take Melody, but he's still dying, and he's slipping rapidly while trying to stay upright with the cane. The Teselecta starts to punish Melody, but Amy turns the Teselecta's safeguard wrist watches against its own crew using the sonic screwdriver. The crew is forced to shut down the ship, which automatically cancels Melody's punishment. They then teleport to their mother ship, leaving Amy and Rory stranded on-board.

The Justice vehicle is sent to painfully kill Time's greatest criminals just before their death (and after their crimes). They realize they've arrived too soon in Hitler's personal timeline, however, they find a bigger fish: The woman who killed the Doctor. Except that she hadn't done that yet, either. Or has she?

Other Nazis don't fare much better with River effortlessly frying a squad of SS men with her post regenerative energy (after declaring she was on her way to a gay gypsy Bar Mitzvah for the disabled) and casually holding a restaurant full of Nazis hostage for their clothes.
