Ten descriptions of Doctor Who episodes from the DirecTV program guide:
- Two mighty armies wage war across the Earth; terror emerges from beneath Torchwood Tower; the Doctor faces a dilemma.
- After the Earth has been conquered and the Doctor is held prisoner, Martha Jones must try to save the world.
- Rose battles the murderous Ood; the Doctor must make a sacrifice in order to save the universe.
- Rose discovers that her father is still alive on a parallel Earth.
- The human race rejoices as ghosts of loved ones return home; an invasion force threatens modern day Earth.
- Rumors of monsters on the streets surround the 1953 coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
- Rose is trapped in the orbit of a black hole; something trapped beneath the planet's surface begins to awaken.
- The Doctor, Rose and Mickey must attack the Cyberfactory to save the population.
- When people start to disappear, a young woman finds cryptic messages bleeding through from a mysterious stranger called the Doctor.
- The Doctor plans to show Rose the London Olympics in 2012; a mother hides her daughter's unearthly powers.
I like how they avoided saying which mighty armies were waging war in their description of "Doomsday." A vague program description is the friend of every unspoiled viewer. On the other hand, "The Doctor faces a dilemma" is probably a little too vague; that describes approximately every Doctor Who episode ever made.
