A jungle planet was caught up in the Time War.
Fallout from the Time War badly affected it and it went through constant states of flux, with the jungle dying, and then growing back again over and over again.
The Theseus crash-landed on the planet after the Daleks attacked it. A group of survivors, led by the Eighth Doctor found an amnesiac Dalek on the planet's surface, and quickly christened it Dal, in order for it to not discover its true species name, the possibility of it remembering what it was, being deemed too risky.
Dal discovered a temporal safe zone, and so began to lead the group on its way there. However, on the way, the group were attacked by primate-like creatures, and the Doctor was amongst those taken. Due to this, Dal elected Bliss as the new group leader, and they continued to press onwards to the safe zone. On arrival at the zone, the group found those who had been taken there. They discovered the creatures were benign, they had simply been affected by the fallout of the War and were trying to ask for help.
The Doctor found that the TARDIS had been damaged by the fallout, and so in an attempt at healing itself, it prevented all access to the console room. At this time, numerous TARDISes arrived in the zone, Cardinal Ollistra being a part of the group of Time Lords having just landed. Dal was destroyed, despite the Doctor's effects and the survivors were taken via TARDIS to a nearby Gallifreyan Military Moon Base. (AUDIO: Echoes of War)
