On 24 July 6012, the Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones and Donna Noble arrived on Messaline, the TARDIS having brought them there against their will. Upon their arrival, the Doctor "gave birth" to Jenny, a generated anomaly grown from a sample of his DNA. With the Doctor's new "daughter", the TARDIS crew together ended the Human-Hath War, which had started only seven days earlier. Jenny was shot by General Cobb, but was revived by energy from "the Source" after the Doctor and his companions left, escaping in a rocket to lead a new life. (TV: The Doctor's Daughter)

In 1764, a road works overseer asked the First Doctor for his papers on the Time Lord's way to Paris. When he had none to present, he was forced into slave labour. Meanwhile, his companionsSusan Foreman, Barbara Wright and Ian Chesterton — were to be guillotined the following day. They were placed in cells at the Conciergerie, but all three had an idea of how to escape. Barbara and Susan abandoned their plan of digging their way out when the hole caused their cell to be infested with rats. The Doctor, however, did manage to get out of his predicament by distracting and knocking out the road works overseer. Ian too managed to get saved — he was crossed off the execution list when his captors thought he knew something of value. (TV: "Guests of Madame Guillotine")
