Until now, an offered chance from the Doctor has never stopped the villain's schemes.
...But then what happens?
Sean Calvin intends to remove free will on a planet. The Doctor convinces him not to, and every year for nine years, Sean meets the Doctor and Ace to chat. Over these nine years, Sean marries and has a daughter, Odessa, and becomes a war hero. In the end, the authorities discover what Sean had intended to do nine years before, and he is tried for his crimes. Ace asks the Doctor whether there was anything different from if Sean had gone through with it, and the Doctor replies that Odessa has hope in this timeline.
