Timeline: 2013



  • When GRE agents visit Bob's Burgers, an amnesiac Sterling Archer uses his well-honed killing skills to dispatch them. He departs the restaurant, leaving his recent family of two months (Linda, Tina, Gene, and Louise Belcher) behind to handle the mess and a health inspector visit in the morning.1
  • January 30-31. Clara Oswald, after being given a phone number by Missy (eighteenth incarnation), calls for tech support, contacting the Doctor ("eleventh" incarnation) in 1207. He comes to see her, and they together defeat a plot by the Great Intelligence where it and its thralls steal people's minds and trap them online. The Doctor offers Clara the chance to travel with him, and she is unsure.2
  • While investigating nefarious actions, the Doctor ("eleventh" incarnation) discovers his former companions Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright (both from 1965) are being held by the alien menace the Prometheans. After breaking them from mind control, he manages to convince them of his identity, and they face the threat of the Prometheans' pawns, the empowered Tribe of Gum, and the Prometheans' use of symbolism to mentally devolve humanity. The Doctor gets help from the mysterious Miss Ghost, who is the bitter Annabel Lake of MI6. The Doctor goes back to Totter's Lane in 1963 and sabotages the TARDIS's Chameleon circuit so as to create an image for humanity to remember, the blue police box. The Tribe and Prometheans destroy each other.3

Turlough runs into one of his old associates from Brendon School, Charlie Gibbs (a fellow Trion exile), who forces Turlough to go on assignment for the Kastrian constable Mulkris to kill Eldrad. Gibbs himself becomes host to an aspect of Eldrad, and all parties have a final confrontation on Kastria, including against the same aspect of Eldrad the Doctor had encountered before. Mulkris "kills" Eldrad (containing the various aspects there) and continues her quest.7
  • March 24-28. Josh Thomas's irascible but recently very outwardly loving (including accepting of his gayness) great aunt, Auntie Peg Farr, dies suddenly.

They head farther north to find Fin and April's son Matt. Matt's friends and Bex are killed by random sharks and wind, but Matt and Nova manage to destroy two of the remnant "sharknadoes" with homemade bombs. Fin drives his rented "movie" car packed with explosives into the third sharknado, dissipating the final one. He is swallowed by a landing shark, but survives inside of it to carve his way out, saving Nova, who had also been swallowed whole by that shark.20

Government liaison Joyce Mandrake tries to immediately disband the team, but Prock gets a small reprieve: to gather a full team of seven within two days. With the help of genius organizer Connie "Concierge" Spivey (30), they recruit previously rejected applicants Frantic (hyperactive Southern speedster Zip Danger [26]), Impresario (light-construct generator Austin Sullivan [30], whose constructs are all in the form of his mother), Sumo (Tim Domoto [11], who can turn into a powerful sumo wrestler when angered), and veteran Gadget Gal (Arlene Davis [80], de-aged by accident to a physicality of a 25-year-old).
