The Doctor's response? Encourage Jo and Sarah to give the machine ''all'' of their memories, everything they've done in space and on Earth, which proves a bit too much for it handle. They break free and hide in the "coffin" as the machine overloads, exploding and taking the Shansheeth and their accomplice with it.

Featuring the Eleventh Doctor and old-school companion Jo Grant, with a [[Creator/RussellTDavies long-time fanboy]] providing a script stuffed to bursting with [[ContinuityNod Continuity Nods]]. Oh, boy.

We start with a webcam chat between Luke and the gang. Luke casually refers to someone he's met at uni as his "best mate ever", and gives Clyde a few seconds to get rather adorably jealous before letting him off the hook. Mr Smith interrupts to warn them all that UNIT is converging on the house, with all the subtlety that [[ShapedLikeItself well, a bunch of gun-toting, beret-wearing soldiers standing around in the middle of Ealing, can have.]] At least the Brigadier has subtlety when it comes to arriving somewhere. As you can probably tell by the title, they've got bad news.

Sarah Jane refuses to believe it, even after seeing a message from the Shansheeth, a species of humanoid vultures whose [[PlanetOfHats hat]] is undertaking across the galaxy. Since the Doctor's home planet is [[WhereIWasBornAndRazed long since gone]], they'll be holding the funeral on Earth, working together with UNIT. Sarah Jane decides to go, but still isn't convinced.

Sarah Jane ('''COUGH''', '''BIG SUPER MASSIVE SPOILER,''' correctly, '''COUGH''', '''END OF BIG SUPER MASSIVE SPOILER''') refuses to believe it, even after seeing a message from the Shansheeth, a species of humanoid vultures whose [[PlanetOfHats hat]] is undertaking across the galaxy. Since the Doctor's home planet is [[WhereIWasBornAndRazed long since gone]], they'll be holding the funeral on Earth, working together with UNIT. Sarah Jane decides to go, but still isn't convinced.



UNIT's refusal to open the Doctor's coffin sparks Sarah Jane's interest, until they mention that he was very badly hurt. She starts to consider that maybe he really is dead, and since he's probably regenerated again, she wouldn't even recognise him. The funeral is less than crowded - most of the guests are old soldiers, as the Doctor's companions don't tend to hang around in groups. Liz Shaw is on the UNIT Moonbase (Clyde's running out of reactions for stuff like that) and TheBrigadier is stranded in Peru [[RunningGag again]]. He must ''really'' like it there.

** Once again, The TARDIS survives being directly inside a very big explosion.

* CrazyAwesome: [[invoked]] Jo's entire life, according to the Doctor. Things like sailing down the Yangtze River ''in a tea-chest'' are the reason which is even when he tried to find her, even the TARDIS could barely track her down. Yes, the TARDIS -- who can see ''everything that is occurring all at the same time!'' -- could not track this woman down!



** And then played completely straight: Sarah Jane isn't stupid enough to think that the Doctor is ''actually'' dead; Karim is refusing to show his body -- the one thing that would, for Sarah Jane, truly confirm it. Sarah Jane is, of course, right on the dot.



** The Shansheeth's plan to use time travel to avert death? The Doctor tried this in ''Waters of Mars'' and oh boy, did ''that'' backfire.

* WellIntentionedExtremist: The Shansheeth have seen so much grief and loss that they want to use the TARDIS to prevent death. Sarah Jane disagrees - remember her speech to the Doctor back in "School Reunion" ("Everything has its time, and everything ends").

This seems, by the time of his regeneration, to be something that Eleven has accepted.
