A Matter of Time: 42

DOCTOR: David Tennant
COMPANION: Freema Agyeman

STORY: The Tenth Doctor and Martha Jones land on the S.S. Pentallian, after receiving a distress signal from the crew. As the spaceship hurtles out of control towards an alien sun, The Doctor only has 42 minutes to uncover the saboteurs, fight of a possessive force, and prevent the destruction of the ship. Time is running out…

• The plot is similar to the Fourth Doctor story ‘Planet of Evil’, which involved a living planet, problems caused by mining, and the return of the stolen material as a resolution.
• The stasis chamber in this episode was adapted from the prop used as the MRI scanner in ‘Smith and Jones’. Similarly, the spacesuit the Doctor wears was previously seen in ‘The Satan Pit’, and repainted maroon.
• A symbol on Martha’s phone is the same as the one on the 'Sinister Woman's’ laptop. In ‘The Sound of Drums’, it is shown to be the symbol for the Archangel network.
