The Doctor’s Wife

Doctor Who | Season 6 | The Doctor's Wife

By following a Time Lord distress signal, the Doctor puts Amy, Rory and his beloved TARDIS in grave danger.


The Doctor (Matt Smith) and his companions Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill) receive a distress call from a living Time Lord, though all other members of the Doctor’s race were thought to be extinct. However, they discover that the call was bait to lure the Doctor to an asteroid outside the universe, where previously the energy of Time Lords’ TARDISes have been consumed by an entity called the House (voice of Michael Sheen). The matrix of the Doctor’s TARDIS is removed and placed in the body of a woman named Idris (Suranne Jones), who proceeds to help them escape.
