"What makes you think I had anything to do with it?" he asks, looking sufficiently offended but not quite pulling off the voice acting. "I'm just around when these things happen. I don't cause them."

The Doctor and Rose are taking in the sights - and ice cream - of New York when they run head long into the future. A future that's statuesque, blonde and carrying an unfortunately large sword that's inexorably destined for the Doctor's neck.
With the police off-side and a trio of goddesses unwittingly entertaining Fate's darker pleasures as they attempt to restore order, it's up to the Doctor and Rose to defy prophecy and save the day - along with themselves - before the heavens fall and New York becomes a charnel house.
The only problem is they have to stop a dragon the size of Manhattan to do it.
This is the first round-robin story featuring the 9th Doctor and Rose.
