The special featured the return of the Daleks, as well as the return of the Zygons, shape-shifting aliens who had previously only appeared in the 1975 serial Terror of the Zygons.
It starts when teacher Clara Oswald receives a message from the Eleventh Doctor and returns to the TARDIS. In London Preserved instructions from Elizabeth I of England are shown to the Doctor, along with a 3-D portrait of the Last Day of the Time War, entitled No More or Gallifrey Falls, and other 3-D paintings, held in a secret vault at the National Gallery. The instructions also name the Doctor the National Gallery’s “curator”, to protect treasures Elizabeth I felt no one else could preserve. The’ glass on these portraits has been broken and figures in the paintings have disappeared It transpires that the shape-shifting Zygons, preserved in old images are hatching an evil plot. To defeat them, UNIT plan to detonate a nuclear warhead in London,
Meanwhile In Elizabethan England the Tenth Doctor and a young Elizabeth I find themselves under threat from ZygonS and are joined by the War Doctor and the Eleventh Doctor and find themselves in the tower of London but manage to escape and All three Doctors enter UNIT Back on Galhfrey in the midst of the Time War, the War Doctor—(who bridges the gap between the original and 2005 series, watches Gallifrey during a,Dalekinvasion, and In order to Stop the War decides to trigger a weapon of mass destruction called the “Moment”, which is described as a “galaxy eater” which will destroy Daleks and Time Lords alike . The weapon is sentient—it appears with the form of future assistant Rose Tyler (companion of theNinth and Tenth Doctors) to challenge whether this mass killing is truly right, by showing him what will become of him and the consequences, if he proceeds.has decided what is right, so he Considers detonating lte Galaxy Eater. His other two present incarnations appear with the intention of detonating the device alongside The War Doctor, who now knows the consequences so he doesn’t have to do it alone. However .Current companion Clara Oswald convinces the Eleventh Doctor to seek an alternative resolution . So, they summon all of the Doctor’s incarnations (including a previously unseen future incarnation) who, work together to try and thwart the DaleKs
At the end, the Eleventh Doctor meets the mysterious curator of the museum, who appears to be aware that he resembles an older version of the Fourth Doctor. The curator tells the Doctor that the painting’s actual name is neither No More or Gallifrey Falls, but the singular Gallifrey Falls No More.The Doctor decides tofind his home planet and rescue the Time Lords. The episode ends with a nod to the series’ history when the Doctor describes a dream he’s had—one where the entire range of the Doctor’s incarnations are seen together and the Doctor determines he will seek out Gallifrey once more.
