Act 2 Edit

A message from the Doctor interrupts Karen Gillan, who is trying to introduce 'Amy's Theme'. The Doctor asks the audience to yell "Hello, Doctor" so he can lock onto their signal. He gets a clear picture, but upside down. The Doctor tells everyone to hang on, makes fun of people wearing wigs and urges ladies to hold their skirts down. He realises his screen is upside down and fixes it and then asks for one more "Hello, Doctor" because he likes being given a big greeting.
The Doctor explains that he has ended up in the Royal Albert Hall in 2207 (possibly meaning 10:07 PM instead of a year) when the show is almost over and the TARDIS then transported him to an unknown location. The TARDIS has locked on to an overloading fold-back quazar engine, which has gone into overdrive, and is only deadly when it starts beeping. It starts beeping slowly, which the Doctor dismisses as a high-pitched beeping is the warning. It then beeps in a higher tone. The Doctor says that as long as he has his sonic screwdriver, he doesn't have to worry and takes out a toothbrush by mistake. Angry with himself for doing that again. The Doctor decides he has to find a safer place to defuse the bomb and has the audience bid him farewell.
To the audience's shock, the Doctor emerges into the Albert Hall. He is equally surprised, then tells the audience there is nothing to worry about so long as the beeping does not stop; it will detonate from the slightest vibration then. The beeping stops, forcing him to briefly abandon the engine. However, it does not detonate and the Doctor picks it up and heads into the crowd. He looks for someone to help, but refuses to have an adult help as they might hit him. The Doctor takes a boy named Ellis from his seat.
He picks a wire from the engine and asks Ellis if he can see it, which says he can. The Doctor is surprised by how sharp he is and explains that the wire he's holding is psychic wire, which is so thin that its practically imaginary. He compliments the boy again, saying he's "one step ahead of the game". He has Ellis hold the wire in his hand, then in his mouth to save his hand. The Doctor has Ellis keep his head still and is taken aback by how serious Ellis is taking this when he doesn't giggle at the mention of doing so for comical effect. This makes the audience cheer. The Doctor goes on about how ridiculous his plan seems. He needs to use Ellis as a biological transducer in order to disperse the engine's energy through the Wi-Fi in the hall to deactivate it.
Before he can finishing gloating, the Doctor has to perform his task by the wooshing engine. The Doctor informs the audience that he has saved the Royal Albert Hall. He thanks Ellis and returns him to his seat and asks for his name. He has the crowd cheer for Ellis before continuing about side-effects. He warns Ellis that he may have a sore throat in the morning, and "develop x-ray vision and turn into a giant bird; but that rarely happens." At first, the Doctor tells everyone there are no side-effects, then says "Unless you have your mobile phone on, in which case, you're going to die"; ITV had also been 'blown off the air'. He leaves after reading a pamphlet and insulting Matt Smith for having a 'dull name' and wishing the audience a good night.

- Two scenes feature a similar scene to the last one from The Pandorica Opens (I Am The Doctor & The Doctor who theme)
- The Doctor accidentally pulls out a toothbrush, instead of the sonic screwdriver (TV: The Lodger).
- There is a variation of the Doctor's 'wibbly wobbly timey-wimey' quote (Wibbly Wobbly Explody Thing).

- The Doctor mentions ITV has been blown off air.
