Type: Space-time rift
Appearances: TV: The Stolen Earth/Journey's End

The Medusa Cascade was a colourful region of space and the location of a rift in time and space. It was sealed at some point by the Doctor. (TV: Last of the Time Lords)

Appearance Edit

The Cascade was nebulous in appearance, containing what appeared to be clouds of coloured gas. It addition to the space-time rift, it also contained at least fifteen "broken moons." (TV: The Sontaran Stratagem)

History Edit

The Medusa Cascade was visited by the Doctor in his first incarnation when he was "just a kid" of ninety years old. (TV: The Stolen Earth) The Fourth Doctor and Romana later visited it. (PROSE: City of Death)

During the Last Great Time War, the Eighth Doctor intended to use the Great Key to seal the rift at the Medusa Cascade, believing that doing so could end the war, (COMIC: The Forgotten) possibly without having to destroy the Time Lords and Daleks as he later had to. (TV: The Day of the Doctor)

Evelina, a woman who could see the future, mentioned the Medusa Cascade when commenting on the Tenth Doctor, commenting, "Your real name is hidden. It burns in the stars, in the Cascade of Medusa herself". (TV: The Fires of Pompeii) The Tenth Doctor later confided in Donna Noble that, amongst other places, he wanted to take her to visit the Fifteenth Broken Moon of the Medusa Cascade. (TV: The Sontaran Stratagem) During a solo adventure, the Doctor exclaimed "Medusa Cascade" to see if the possessed Sky Silvestry would echo him. (TV: Midnight)

The Medusa Cascade was the place where Davros's New Dalek Empire moved twenty-seven planets. The planets could not be found by regular means, as they were out of temporal synchronisation with the rest of the universe by a second. (TV: The Stolen Earth) Davros placed them there so that when his reality bomb was set off, it could penetrate the Cascade's space-time rift and spread the bomb's destructive force across every possible timeline and all of existence. (TV: Journey's End)

This led to an invasion of Earth, one of the required twenty-seven planets. (TV: The Stolen Earth) It ended with the near-total destruction of the Daleks by the Meta-Crisis Tenth Doctor and (with the help of the Doctor and his companions) the return of all of the planets to their correct locations in time and space. As the Daleks were being destroyed and everything burned around him Davros proclaimed, "I name you, Destroyer of Worlds!" (TV: Journey's End) thus fulfilling the prophesy of Evelina. (TV: The Fires of Pompeii)
