Arriving in London on Christmas Eve, 1851, The Doctor merrily makes his way through a busy marketplace in the midst of a snowfall. Suddenly he hears a woman calling his name, and rushes to investigate. He finds himself in an alleyway where the woman, named Rosita, is panicking as something threatens to break through a nearby door. He introduces himself but Rosita insists he is not The Doctor.
Soon another man arrives, clothed in classic Edwardian dress. He tells Rosita, his companion, to pass him his Sonic Screwdriver and then to return to the TARDIS, this is the job of a Time Lord. As the door gives way the two men both stand ready with their Screwdrivers, the two Doctors.
