The Beginner traces the Time Crack, which the Raxoclofalopt Plant mentioned in the previous encounter (Attack of the Plant ). He lands in world war two, coming across a spinning brick, a friend, a slave made by the Time Crack. When he walks along, he notices a man. A very familiar man. His name is The Doctor, and they appear to have met before. They finally locate the Time Crack and destroy it. The Time Crack was a lonely race, so it became a time crack to know everything in the world, all the friends possible. The Time Crack detected The Beginner's TARDIS easily, so he turned the detection down and then it detected the next thing similar... The Doctor's TARDIS. The Beginner helps The Doctor into his TARDIS, but he gets rejected so they must go to where it last landed, Rome...
