One morning in every city and town in the world, the human race wakes up to face the most surprising invasion yet. Everywhere, in every land, a forest has grown overnight and taken back the Earth. It doesn't take the Doctor long to discover that the final days of humanity have arrived.

If you can't save them all, save what you can. TARDIS. It's a lifeboat, isn't it? Not everybody has to die.
