On the same day in 2007, the Doctor's TARDIS fell into Pete's World, where it almost died. With twenty-four hours before the TARDIS could return to its home universe, Rose Tyler discovered a living version of her dad, Pete Tyler, alive and a successful businessman. To meet her "father," Rose sneaked, with the Tenth Doctor, into Jackie Tyler's, her mother, birthday party. The President of Great Britain forbade the use of John Lumic's new cybernetic lifeform, but Lumic ignored him. Mickey Smith, mistaken for his parallel self, Ricky Smith, was taken by the Preachers, who fought Lumic. The cybernetic life, dubbed Cybermen, attacked Jackie's party, killing most of those inside, including the President. (TV: Rise of the Cybermen)
