But the Doctor is suspicious about some of the other changes he can see in Earth’s heavens. Particularly that bright star, right there. No not that one, that one, there, on the left…The world’s population is slowly being converted to a new path, a new way of thinking. Something is coming to Earth, an ancient force from the Dark Times. Something powerful, angry, and all-consuming..
