The Doctor's Daughter Synopsis

The picture above was made by me.
The BBC have now released the synopsis for the sixth episode of Doctor Who Series 4, The Doctor's Daughter. Georgia Moffet, real life daughter of Peter Davison who played The 5th Doctor, is the main guest star in this episode and takes the role of Jenny. Here is the synopsis for the episode;

The Doctor meets the most important woman of his life on the distant planet Messaline, in the middle of an endless war, as Russell T Davies’s BAFTA award-winning time-travelling drama continues. But as General Cobb threatens genocide, and Martha is kidnapped by the Hath, the Doctor faces an even greater battle - can he find peace with his own child?

The Doctor's Daughter will air on the 10th May and The Doctor will be assisted by both Donna and Martha for this adventure. This episode is written by Stephen Greenhorn who wrote "The Lazarus Experiment" for Doctor Who Series 3 last year.
What do you think of the synopsis?

    I can't wait to see how they explain that the Doctor has a child, not to mention whatever became of his granddaughter Susan Foreman. I've heard rumour that Jenny might actually be Susan's mother. Now that would be some incredible continuity from the original series, since Susan's true origins were never explained.

    Oh, wait, I just remembered that the Doctor told Rose in the episode Fear Her that he had a child! So is Jenny that child?

    Great idea, I'm nervous though. This is a tough story to write and I was not impressed with Lazarus. As for continuity, that would be perfect, but again I'm nervous. There is a LOT of material out there, from the Old Series, from interviews with Carole Anne Ford (the only source for the early backplot), possibly the Big Finish audios, and some consider the New Adventures novel "Lungbarrow" as cannonical. Which source(s) have been used, if any? How do they explain how she wasn't caught up in the Time War? (Or escaped if she was?) How do they explain why The Doctor was unable to detect any other Timelords as existing? They can't all be trapped in watches, that would be getting silly. And what did happen to Susan? Without a TARDIS, those on Gallifrey can use all the recall circuits in the world, she'd not be going anywhere. And how do they plan on cramming in everything that the fans will demand? Argh! The old series might easily have made something this major a 6-part or an 8-part story. This isn't just a throw-away storyline. Girl in a Fireplace was a good story, but ultimately has no real impact on future stories by the BBC or anyone else. This does. This could also make or break The New Series in the eyes of older fans - a ratings boost or a ratings killer - which in turn may determine if Doctor Who returns in 2010 or not. It would be better for them to drop the episode and run a short season than to mess this up, for the BBC and for the fans alike.

Something to say?
