A planet facing catastrophe calls for the Doctor to help fix their power source and save them from destruction. Normally a good plan. Unfortunately, the Doctor has been yanked out of time and trapped in a Chronic Hysteresis (a time loop with a flashier name). The good news - another "Doctor" is on his way to solve the problem. The bad news - this one is an imposter and a thief? It's the old "trap them in a hysteresis, impersonate the Doctor's body, steal the Dodecahedron" trick.
