The Doctor's Wife

1 episode, broadcast: 14th May 2011
The Doctor receives an emergency communication from a Time Lord, the Corsair which leads him to a rift-infused junkyard planet in a bubble universe. As the time travellers explore they then encounter Uncle, Auntie, Nephew and a 'mad' woman Idris . However, it transpires that the planet's entity, House, feeds on TARDISes and tricked Time Lords to the planet using others' communications, but having found the Doctor is the last, decides to leave to find a better source in the TARDIS with Amy and Rory trapped on board. .
It transpires that Idris contains the living matrix of the TARDIS, transferred there by House to gain control of the TARDIS. The two build a working TARDIS console from the remains of House's other 'victims' , and use it to pursue and enter the Doctor's , whereupon the matrix is returned to her rightful place and House is dispelled.
