The mysteries of time get explored in this week's episodes. In Space Museum, the time travelers get a glimpse of a future where they are doomed to die. Can they prevent it? Are they supposed to? Later in the week, the Doctor learns from the past that the Daleks plan to exterminate him in the future, which is rapidly approaching the present. Daleks with time travel. Oh dear.
