Références et continuité

  • Le Maître prend le contrôle d"UNIT.
  • Conformément à la fin de la troisième saison de Torchwood, le capitaine Jack Harkness n'est plus sur Terre. La scène est un clin d'œil à Star Wars. On y retrouve diverses races extra-terrestres : un Raxacoricofallapatorien, un Judoon, un Graske, un Hath, un enfant Adipose... La chanson que l'on entend est My Angel Put the Devil in Me, chantée dans un cabaret dans l'épisode L'Expérience finale. L'homme que le Docteur aide Jack à rencontrer à cette occasion, Alonso Frame, est le jeune officier de marine, resté au poste de commande du Titanic dans Une croisière autour de la Terre. Cette scène rappelle celle que Russell T Davies avait souhaité inclure dans La Terre volée.
  • On trouve aussi une scène liée à The Sarah Jane Adventures lorsque le Docteur sauve Luke Smith et l'on aperçoit Sarah Jane Smith et sa maison sur Bannerman Road. Ce que dit Luke au téléphone est une fonction récurrente de l'ordinateur de Sarah Jane, Mr Smith : inventer une information pour couvrir un phénomène paranormal. Ici, il s'agit de faire croire que l'apparition du visage du Maître dans la tête des gens était due aux connexions Wi-Fi.
  • Lors de la scène de dédicade du livre Le Journal des choses impossibles, le nom de l'auteur est Verity Newman. Il s'agit d'un clin d'oeil aux producteurs du Doctor Who de 1963, càd Verity Lambert et Sydney Newman.

Le Conseil des Seigneurs du Temps débat d'une possible stratégie leur permettant de survivre à la Guerre du Temps et d'échapper au verrou temporel qui enferme Gallifrey et la Guerre du Temps dans son ensemble. Ils savent que le jour où le Docteur va pouvoir détruire à la fois les Seigneurs du Temps et les Daleks est réellement arrivé.

Le Lord Président refuse totalement la défaite, et comprend que le Docteur et le Maître sont à l'extérieur du verrou temporel. Il conçoit un plan pour permettre aux Seigneurs du Temps d'entrer en contact avec le Maître. Ils parviennent à implanter un message mental dans son esprit, rétroactivement, lors de son enfance (le bruit des tambours, la cause de sa folie) et à travers un diamant gallifréen envoyé au Maître comme signal, ils créent un point d'arrimage pour eux-mêmes en dehors du verrou temporel, sur la Terre.

Dans le présent, le Docteur et Wilf sont à l'abri avec les Vinvocci, dans leur vaisseau en orbite autour de la Terre. Le Maître découvre le diamant gallifréen et l'annonce au Docteur. Celui-ci comprend immédiatement que les Seigneurs du Temps reviennent. Tout ce à quoi il avait cru jusqu'alors, qu'il était le dernier de sa race et responsable de la mort de son peuple, s'effondre.

Armé du pistolet de Wilf, le Docteur retourne sur Terre, mais refuse une attaque suicide contre l'Arche d'Immortalité, préférant se jeter vers la résidence Naismith depuis le vaisseau spatial. Il est trop tard, le Conseil des Seigneurs du Temps est déjà parvenu sur Terre.

Leur intention est de mettre fin au Temps lui-même et d'accéder à un nouveau niveau de conscience, détruisant l'ensemble de la création dans ce processus. Le Maître s'imagine pouvoir utiliser l'Arche pour prendre le contrôle du Conseil comme il l'a fait avec toute l'humanité. Mais le Président est plus prompt et renvoit l'humanité à son état original, tandis que Gallifrey, belle, imposante, commence à se matérialiser près de la Terre, menaçant de l'éjecter hors de son orbite.

Le Docteur se voit contraint de choisir entre tirer sur le Maître, coupant le lien et renvoyant les Seigneurs du Temps dans le verrou temporel, ou tirer sur le Président, pour prendre le contrôle des Seigneurs du Temps. Après bien des hésitations, alors qu'il est tiraillé entre ses devoirs, le Docteur utilise finalement le pistolet de Wilf pour détruire le diamant qui était utilisé pour ancrer les Seigneurs du Temps à la Terre, brisant le lien.

Le Président essaie de tuer le Docteur, qui le désigne par son nom, Rassilon. Le Maître, ayant réalisé l'échec de son plan et le fait qu'il n'a été tout au long de sa vie que l'instrument des Seigneurs du Temps, intervient et attaque Rassilon pour prendre sa revanche, sauvant le Docteur, même si ce n'était pas forcément son objectif.

Les Seigneurs du Temps et Gallifrey sont renvoyés par l'Arche vers le dernier jour de la Guerre du Temps. Le sort du Maître demeure inconnu. Néanmoins on peut supposer qu'il est mort en utilisant tout le reste de son énergie vitale pour tuer Rassilon puisqu'il était mourant depuis le début.

Le Docteur a un bref moment de soulagement avant d'entendre les quatre coups fatidiques, les fameux quatre coups, ceux que les Oods et Carmen ("Planète morte") avaient prédit, l'annonce de sa mort.

C'est Wilfred Mott, qui est resté enfermé dans l'un des compartiments connecté à la source d'énergie nucléaire de l'Arche qui va bientôt atteindre la phase critique. Il ne peut être libéré que si quelqu'un prend sa place et se sacrifie, mais il n'y a que le Docteur. Le Seigneur du temps sait qu'il va le faire mais se laisse aller à une rage vaine. Disant qu'il a peut-être vécu trop longtemps, il libère enfin Wilf, qui ne le veut plus, ne voulant pas être responsable de sa mort (car les deux hommes ont tissé des liens forts). Et le Docteur reçoit une dose massive de radiations mortelles.

Bien qu'il résiste, ne voulant pas partir comme ça, et que cela ne le tue pas immédiatement, les effets sur son corps lui montrent que le processus de régénération va commencer. Il ramène Wilfred chez lui puis on le voit aller observer ses anciens compagnons, leur faisant un signe de loin, un au revoir plutôt qu'un adieu ou bien le contraire.

Le Docteur a gardé Rose pour la fin. Il lui rend visite quelques mois avant la rencontre de la jeune fille avec le Neuvième Docteur. Elle ne le connaît donc pas encore. Là, il s'effondre à proximité du Tardis et Ood Sigma apparaît.

Il lui dit que l'Univers entier va chanter pour l'aider à s'endormir. Le Docteur, au son du chant des Oods, atteint le Tardis et le met en marche. Il se régénère alors de façon violente, peut-être parce qu'il a trop attendu et résisté. Les fenêtres se brisent et la salle de contrôle s'enflamme tandis qu'il se régénère.

Le Tardis partant en morceaux autour de lui, le Onzième Docteur apparaît alors. Il examine rapidement son nouveau corps comme la fois précédente. Manifestement content, il se cramponne à la console du Tardis tandis que le vaisseau tombe vers la Terre et crie « Géronimo ! ».

(Recap of part 1).

 

OPENING CREDITS

 

EXT. PLANET GALLIFREY, DAY

There is wreckage all throughout the landscape, and the dome protecting the Citadel is broken, with smoke rising from some of the buildings.

 

INT. CITADEL CORRIDOR, DAY

Three Time Lords march down a corridor as pieces of the ceiling fall. The one in the center, the leader, is the same from the end of Part One. He is the President.

 

INT. CITADEL CHAMBER, DAY

The President sits at the head of the table.

PRESIDENT : What news of the Doctor ?

TIME LORD 1 : Disappeared, my Lord President.

TIME LADY 1 : But we know his intention. He still possesses the Moment. And he'll use it, to destroy Daleks and Time Lords alike.

TIME LORD 1 : The Visionary confirms it.

At the other end of the table is an old woman with long straggly grey hair. Across her face and hands are tattooed lines and dots. In front of her are sheets of paper bearing writing and drawings.

VISIONARY : Ending, burning, falling, all of it falling, the black and pitch and screaming fire, so burning.

TIME LORD 1 : All of her prophecies say the same, that this is the last day of the Time War, that Gallifrey falls, that we die, today.

VISIONARY : Ending... Ending. Ending. Ending !

TIME LADY 1 : Perhaps it's time. This is only the furthest edge of the Time War. But at its heart, millions die every second, lost in bloodlust and insanity, with time itself resurrecting them, to find new ways of dying, over and over again, a travesty of life. Isn't it better to end it, at last ?

PRESIDENT (stands) : Thank you for your opinion.

The President holds out a gauntlet-covered hand in her direction. It glows with energy and the Time Lady disintegrates with a scream.

PRESIDENT : I will NOT die ! Do you hear me ?! A billion years of Time Lord history riding on our backs. I will not let this perish. I will not !

TIME LORD 1 : There is, um... (picks up one of the Visionary's scrolls). There is one part of the prophecy, my Lord. (brings the scroll to the President). Forgive me. I'm sorry. It's rather difficult to decipher. But it talks of two survivors, beyond the Final Day, two children of Gallifrey.

PRESIDENT : Does it name them ?

TIME LORD 1 : It foresees them locked in their final confrontation, the enmity of ages, which would suggest...

PRESIDENT : The Doctor ! And the Master.

TIME LORD 1 : One word keeps being repeated, my Lord, one constant word. Earth.

VISIONARY : Earth. Earth. Earth ! Earth ! Earth... !

Continues chanting.

TIME LORD 1 : The planet Earth, indigenous species, the human race.

A hologramatic projection of Earth appears above the table.

PRESIDENT : Maybe that's where the answer lies. Our salvation, on Earth.

Laughs.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, OFFICE, DAY

The Doctor is strapped in the chair that formerly held the Master. There is a strap across his mouth. Wilf is tied to a regular chair.

MASTER (leans in to the Doctor) : Now, then. I've got a planet to run. (walks to the center of the room). Is everybody ready ?

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

Naismith-Master is running things from the lab.

NAISMITH-MASTER : 6,727,949,338 versions of us awaiting orders.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, OFFICE, DAY

On a communications screen, the Master can see and speak with each major version of himself.

 

INT. WHITE HOUSE, PRESS ROOM, DAY

PRESIDENT-MASTER (onscreen) : This is Washington. As President of the United States, I can transfer all the United Nations protocols to you immediately, putting you in charge of all the Earth's defences.

 

INT. UNIT HQ, GENEVA, DAY

GENERAL-MASTER (onscreen) : UNIT HQ, Geneva reporting. All under your command, sir.

 

INT. CMC, BEIJING, DAY

COMMISSIONER-MASTER (onscreen) : And this is the Central Military Commission here in Beijing, sir, with over 2.5 million soldiers, sir. (into microphone) Present arms !

 

EXT. BEIJING

An army, all bearing the Master's face, present their rifles.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, OFFICE, DAY

MASTER : Enough soldiers and weapons to turn this planet into a warship. Nothing to say... Doctor ? (walks back to the Doctor). What's that ? Pardon ? Sorry ?

WILF : You let him go, you swine.

MASTER : Oh, your dad's still kicking up a fuss.

WILF : Yeah ? Well, I'd be proud if I was.

MASTER (puts a finger to his lips) : Hush, now. Listen to your Master.

Wilf's mobile rings, surprising the Master.

MASTER : But that... that's a mobile.

WILF : Yeah, it's mine, let me turn it off.

MASTER (walks to Wilf) : No, no, no. I don't think you understand. Everybody on this planet... is me. And I'm not phoning you, so who the hell is that ?

Kneels and searches Wilf.

WILF : It's nobody. Probably some ring-back call.

MASTER (finds the revolver and shows the Doctor) : Ooh, and look at this. Good man ! (drops it on the floor and continues searching until her finds the phone). "Donna". Who's Donna ?

WILF : She's no-one, just leave it.

The Master answers it.

DONNA (over phone) : Gramps... Don't hang up. You've got to help me.

 

EXT. ALLEY, DAY

Donna is on the phone, trying to hide in the alley behind the house.

DONNA : I ran out. Everyone was changing.

MASTER : Who is she ? Why didn't she change ?

DONNA (over phone) : Gramps, I can’t hear you.

WILF : Well, it was this thing the Doctor did... He did it to her. The Metacrisis.

MASTER : Oh... He loves playing with Earth girls. Ugh !

DONNA (over phone) : Are you there ?

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

The Master directs Naismith-Master.

MASTER (onscreen) : Find her. Trace the call.

NAISMITH-MASTER : Trace the call.

The Technician-Masters work on tracing the call.

DONNA (over phone) : Are you still there ? Can you hear me ?

MASTER : Say goodbye to the freak, Grandad.

Holds the phone to Wilf's ear.

WILF : Donna, get out of there !

Donna is on the phone, trying to hide in the alley behind the house.

WILF (over phone) : Look, Just get out of there ! Run !

Donna runs.

TECHNICIAN-MASTER : She's on Wessex Lane, Chiswick.

NAISMITH-MASTER : Open the phone lines. Everyone on Wessex Lane - red alert.

DONNA (over phone) : What do I do ?

WILF : Run, sweetheart, that's all. Run for your life !

Donna stops when one of the Masters blocks her way. She looks back the way she came to see another.

DONNA : There's more of them.

WILF (over phone) : Donna ? What's happening ? Are you still there ?

More come out to block her way.

DONNA : They're everywhere...

WILF (over phone) : Donna ?

NEIGHBOR-MASTER 1 : Oh, I'm starving.

WILF (over phone) : Look, I'm telling you. Run, Donna !

NEIGHBOR-MASTER 2 : I'm still hungry !

WILF : Just run, sweetheart. Just run !

They begin to advance on Donna.

DONNA : It's not just them... (has flashes of memories). I can see those things again. Those creatures. Why can I see a giant wasp ?

Puts a hand to her head.

WILF : Donna, don't think about that, Donna, my love, don’t !

DONNA : And it hurts. My head, it keeps getting hotter, and hotter, and hotter, and hotter, and hotter !

Donna screams and energy pours from her, knocking all the Masters in the road to the ground.

DONNA (softly) : What did I... ?

Collapses.

WILF : Donna ? What was that ? Donna... ? Donna, are you there ?

The Master looks over at the Doctor.

WILF : Donna... ! Donna ! Donna...

The Master gets up, strides over to the Doctor and removes the gag.

DOCTOR : That's better. Hello. But really, did you think I'd leave my best friend without a defence mechanism ?

WILF : Doctor, what happened ?

DOCTOR : She's all right, she's fine, I promise. She'll just sleep.

MASTER : Tell me, where's your TARDIS ?

DOCTOR : You could be so wonderful.

MASTER : Where is it ?

DOCTOR : You're a genius. You're stone-cold brilliant. You are, I swear, you really are. But you could be so much more. You could be beautiful. With a mind like that, we could travel the stars. It would be my honour, ‘cause you don't need to own the universe, just see it. To have the privilege of seeing the whole of time and space. That's ownership enough.

MASTER : Would it stop, then ? The noise in my head ?

DOCTOR : I can help.

MASTER : I don't know what I'd be without that noise.

DOCTOR : Wonder what I'd be, without you.

MASTER (sniffles) : Yeah.

WILF : What does he mean ? What noise ?

MASTER : It began on Gallifrey.

 

FLASHBACK

Clip of the Master as a child walking in front of an older Time Lord
.

MASTER (v.o.) : As children.

MASTER : Not that you'd call it childhood. (sits). More a life of duty. Eight years old.

 

FLASHBACK

The young Master hesitates and looks back at the Time Lord
.

MASTER (v.o.) : I was taken for initiation. To stare into the Untempered Schism.

WILF : What does that mean ?

DOCTOR : It's a gap in the fabric of reality. You can see into the Time Vortex itself. And it hurts.

MASTER : They took me there, in the dark.

 

FLASHBACK

We see the Untempered Schism and the swirling vortex.

MASTER (v.o.) : I looked into time, old man, and I heard it calling to me.

MASTER : Drums, the never-ending drums.

 

INT. CITADEL CHAMBER, DAY

The President sits at the head of the table.

PRESIDENT : The Untempered Schism, that's when it began.

TIME LORD 1 : History says the Master heard a rhythm, “a torment that stayed with him for the rest of his life”.

PRESIDENT : A drumbeat, a warrior's march.

TIME LORD 1 : A symptom of insanity, my Lord.

The Visionary repeatedly taps out a four-beat rhythm with her forefinger.

PRESIDENT : A rhythm of four ! The heartbeat of a Time Lord.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, OFFICE, DAY

MASTER : Listen to it. (looks at the Doctor). Listen.

DOCTOR : Then let's find it, you and me.

MASTER : Except... (stands). Oh ! Oh, wait a minute. Oh, yes. Oh, that's good.

DOCTOR : What ? What is ?

MASTER : The noise exists within my head. And now within six billion heads. Everyone on Earth can hear it. Imagine ! Oh... Oh, yes !

He laughs, and there is a skeletal flash before he drops in a crouch.

DOCTOR : The Gate wasn't enough. You're still dying.

MASTER : This body was born out of death. All it can do is die. (stands). But what did you say to me, back in the wasteland ? You said, "the end of time."

DOCTOR : I said something is returning. I was shown a prophecy. That's why I need your help.

MASTER : What if I'm part of it ? Don't you see ? The drumbeat is calling from so far away, from the end of time itself. And now it's been amplified six billion times. Triangulate all those signals. I could find its source ! Oh, Doctor... That's what your prophecy was. Me ! (slaps the Doctor). Where's the TARDIS ?

DOCTOR : No. Just stop. Just think.

MASTER (points to Wilf) : Kill him.

A helmeted soldier walks over to Wilf and aims his gun at him.

MASTER : I need that technology, Doctor. Tell me where it is, or the old man is dead.

WILF : Don't tell him.

MASTER : I'll kill him, right now !

DOCTOR : Actually, the most impressive thing about you is that after all this time, you're still bone-dead stupid.

MASTER (rolls his neck) : Take aim.

The soldier aims.

DOCTOR : You've got six billion pairs of eyes, but you still can't see the obvious, can you ?

MASTER : Like what ?

DOCTOR : That guard is one inch too tall.

The Master turns to look at the soldier, who hits him with his rifle. The soldier then takes off the helmet, to reveal the male Vinvocci, Rossiter.

ROSSITER : Oh, my God, I hit him. I've never hit anyone in my life.

Addams runs into the room and unties Wilf.

ADDAMS : Well, come on ! We need to get out of here, fast.

The Vinvocci goes to free the Doctor.

WILF : God bless the cactuses !

DOCTOR : That's CACTI.

ROSSITER : That's racist !

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

The Naismith-Master walks to the screen.

NAISMITH MASTER : This prophecy of yours, Doctor... where did it come from ? Doctor ?

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, OFFICE, DAY

ADDAMS : Come on ! We've got to get out.

ROSSITER : There's too many buckles and straps.

ADDAMS : Just... wheel him.

Rossiter begins to push the chair from behind.

DOCTOR : No, no, no ! Get me out ! No, no, don't ! Don't ! No, no, no...

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

The Naismith-Master sees the Doctor wheeled past.

NAISMITH MASTER : What's going on ? Doctor !

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, CORRIDOR, DAY

ROSSITER : Which way ?

ADDAMS : This way.

DOCTOR : No, no, no, the other way ! I've got my TARDIS.

ADDAMS : I know what I'm doing.

DOCTOR : No, no, just... just listen to me !

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, OFFICE, DAY

The Master kneels on the floor, hand on the back of his head, as soldiers run in.

MASTER : Find him. Find him !

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, BASEMENT STAIRS, DAY

DOCTOR : Not the stairs... Not the stairs !

They push the chair down wide steps leading down to the cellar. Each bump has the Doctor grunting in pain.

DOCTOR : Worst... rescue... ever !

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, CORRIDOR, DAY

The soldiers run through the corridors, the Master following.

GUARD-MASTER : Underneath the Gate Room, sir.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

NAISMITH-MASTER : Basement. Get him.

GUARD-MASTERS : Yes, sir.

Leave.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, BASEMENT STAIRS, DAY

The Master and the guards run down the stairs.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, BASEMENT, DAY

Addams leads the way to the tech room under the lab. Rossiter follows, pushing the Doctor, Wilf in the rear.

DOCTOR : Just... stop, and listen to me !

The guards appear, blocking the room. The Master arrives and smiles.

MASTER : Gotcha.

ADDAMS : You think so ?

Presses her watch.

DOCTOR : No, no, no - don't, don't !

The four of them disappear.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP, SPACE

They reappear on the ship.

DOCTOR : Now get me out of this thing !

ADDAMS : Don't say thanks, will you ?

DOCTOR : He's not going to let us go. Just hurry up and get me out !

WILF (looks out a window) : Oh, my goodness me... We're in space !

Looks down on Earth.

DOCTOR : Come on !

ADDAMS : All right !

WILF : Oh...

DOCTOR : Get a move on !

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, BASEMENT, DAY

The Master taps on a keyboard in an attempt to get their location.

MASTER : Open the teleport and follow him !

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP, SPACE

DOCTOR : Come on !

ADDAMS : All right !

Finally free of the chair, the Doctor uses the sonic on one of the control panels which explodes.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, BASEMENT, DAY

The Master gets some readings on a computer.

MASTER : He's still up there. Target practice.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP, SPACE

DOCTOR : Where's your flight deck ?

ADDAMS : But we're safe ! We're a hundred thousand miles above the Earth.

DOCTOR : And he's got every single missile on the planet ready to fire !

ADDAMS : Good point.

Addams leads the way. The Doctor stops when he realizes Wilf isn’t following. He comes back and takes the older man by the arm and leads him out.

WILF : But we're in space !

DOCTOR : Yup.

With a laugh, he follows.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP COMPANIONWAYS, SPACE

The four run through the ship to the flight deck.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

MASTER : Turn everything you've got to the skies. Find me that ship. And prime the missiles.

 

INT. UNIT HQ GENEVA, DAY

GENERAL-MASTER : Open up the radar, maximum scan.

UNIT-MASTERS : Yes, sir.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP FLIGHT DECK, SPACE

DOCTOR : We've got to close it down !

ROSSITER : No chance, mate, we're going home.

ADDAMS : We're a salvage team. Local politics has nothing to do with us. Not unless there's a carnival. Sooner we get back to Vinvocci space the better.

DOCTOR : You're not leaving.

Uses the sonic and the ship goes dead.

 

INT. UNIT HQ GENEVA, DAY

GENERAL-MASTER : Anything ?

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP FLIGHT DECK, SPACE

The Doctor shushes them until the only sound is the ship creaking.

 

INT. UNIT HQ GENEVA, DAY

UNIT-MASTER : I'm sorry, sir. Nothing.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

GENERAL-MASTER (onscreen) : Lost him.

MASTER : What about teleport coordinates ?

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, BASEMENT, DAY

MASTER (over radio) : I need that information.

One of the soldiers checks the computer.

SOLDIER-MASTER : He's cut the link, sir. No trace, all dead. Still... (aims gun at computer). Open fire !

All the soldiers fire at the teleport until it’s in ruins.

SOLDIER-MASTER : No way back now. He's stranded.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP FLIGHT DECK, SPACE

ADDAMS : No sign of any missiles... No sign of... anything. You've wrecked the place !

ROSSITER : The engines are burnt out. Just auxiliary lights. Everything else is kaput. We can't move. We're stuck, in orbit.

ADDAMS : Thanks to you. You idiot !

Storms out.

WILF : I know you, though. I bet you've got a plan, haven't you ? Eh ? Come on ! You've always got a trick up your sleeve. Nice little bit of the old Doctor flimflam, ha-ha-ha, sort of thing ? Eh?

The Doctor just looks at him, solemn.

WILF : Oh, blimey.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, NIGHT

MASTER : Night has fallen. Are we ready ?

NAISMITH-MASTER : Every single one of us is prepared.

MASTER : Then we listen, all of us, across the world. Just... listen.

The Master closes his eyes and so do all the others across the Earth.

MASTER : Concentrate. Find the signal.

The rhythmic tapping of four beats is heard.

MASTER : There. The sound is tangible. Someone could only have designed this. But who ?

 

INT. CITADEL CHAMBER, DAY

TIME LORD 1 : The signal has been sent. A simple task of four beats transmitted back through time, and implanted in the Master's mind as a child.

PRESIDENT : Then we have a link, to where the Master is right now.

The hologram of Earth is brought back on.

TIME LORD 1 : But we're still trapped inside the Time Lock, sir. The link is nothing more than... a thought, an idea.

PRESIDENT : Then we need something to make the contact physical. Something... so simple.

VISIONARY : So small and shining, shining bright and cold, the tiny, tiny star, falling, falling, burning, burning, burning.

The President stands and motions for his staff. He looks at the jewel embedded in the head.

PRESIDENT : Small enough to follow the link. (removes the diamond). And if this were on Earth...

Throws the diamond at the hologram.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP FLIGHT DECK, SPACE

The Doctor is working on some wiring, when he looks out through the window and sees a meteor heading for Earth. He stands and walks to the window.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, NIGHT

NAISMITH-MASTER : The sound... it's coming from above.

MASTER : It's coming from the sky !

Runs out.

 

EXT. NAISMITH MANSION, BALCONY, NIGHT

MASTER : There ! (points at the trail in the sky). Get out there and find it !

GUARD-MASTERS : Yes, sir.

 

EXT. FIELD, NIGHT

The soldiers arrive at the crash site and pull their vehicles to the edge of the flaming crater. They all get out and search the site with torches. One slows and enters the crater where he sees something glitter.

GUARD-MASTER : It's a diamond, sir. (picks it up). Oh... the most impossible diamond. You won't believe this.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, NIGHT

GUARD-MASTER (over radio) : It's a Whitepoint star !

Stunned at first, the Master begins to laugh, going skeletal.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP COMPANIONWAYS, SPACE

Wilf is looking for the Doctor.

WILF : Doctor... ? Hello ? Hello ? (hears clanging). Is that you ? (walks forward). Doctor... ? Anyone ? (enters large room). Anyone ?! Oh, I think I'm lost.

The Woman from the church appears behind him.

WOMAN : And yet you are found.

Wilf turns around, startled.

WOMAN : Events are closing. The day is almost upon us. But tell me, old soldier, did you take arms ?

WILF (pulls the revolver from his pocket) : I brought this. But... what am I supposed to do ?

WOMAN : This is the Doctor's final battle. At the end of his life, he must stand at arms, or lose himself and all this world, to the end of time.

WILF : But he... he never carries guns. He doesn't do... Who are you ?

WOMAN : I was lost... so very long ago.

Wilf looks down at the gun in his hands. When he looks up, the woman is gone.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP, SPACE

Wilf finds the Doctor working with the wiring.

WILF : Aye, aye. Got this old tub mended ?

DOCTOR : Just trying to fix the heating.

WILF (sits down beside him with a sigh) : D'you know, I've always dreamt of a view like that. (chuckles). I'm an astronaut. It's dawn over England, look. Brand new day. My wife's buried down there. I might never visit her again now. D'you think he changed them, in their graves ?

DOCTOR : I'm sorry.

WILF : No, not your fault.

DOCTOR : Isn't it ?

WILF (looking out window) : Ooh... 1948, I was over there. End of the Mandate in Palestine. Private Mott. Skinny little idiot, I was, stood on this rooftop, the middle of a skirmish. It was like a blizzard, all them bullets in the air. The world gone mad. Yeah, you don't want to listen to an old man's tales, do you ?

DOCTOR : I'm older than you.

WILF : Get away.

DOCTOR : I'm 906.

WILF : What, really, though ?

DOCTOR : Yeah.

WILF : 900 years... We must look like insects to you.

DOCTOR : I think you look like giants.

WILF (takes out the gun) : Listen, I... I want you to have this. I've kept it all this time, and I thought...

DOCTOR : No.

WILF : No, but if you take it, you could...

DOCTOR : No. You had that gun in the mansion. You could have shot the Master there and then.

WILF : Too scared, I suppose.

DOCTOR : I'd be proud.

WILF : Of what ?

DOCTOR : If you were my dad.

WILF : Oh, come on, don't start. But you said... you were told... he will knock four times, and then you die. Well, that's him, isn't it, The Master ? That noise in his head ? The Master is going to kill you.

DOCTOR : Yeah.

WILF (holds the gun out) : Then kill him first.

DOCTOR : And that's how the Master started. It's not like I'm an innocent. I've taken lives. I got worse - I got clever. Manipulated people into taking their own. Sometimes I think a Time Lord lives too long. I can't. I just can't.

WILF : If the Master dies, what happens to all the people ?

DOCTOR : I don't know.

WILF : Doctor, what happens ?

DOCTOR : The template snaps.

WILF : What, they go back to being human ?

The Doctor nods.

WILF : They're alive and human ? Then don't you dare, sir. Don't you DARE put him before them. Now you take this, that's an order, Doctor. Take the gun. You take the gun and save your life. And please don't die. You're the most wonderful man and I don't want you to die !

Sobs as he takes the Doctor's hand and places it on the gun.

DOCTOR : Never.

Pushes the gun away.

MASTER (over Tannoy) : A star... fell from the sky.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

MASTER : Don't you want to know where from ?

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP FLIGHT DECK, SPACE

Addams and Rossiter are trying to get the ship started.

MASTER (over Tannoy) : Because now it makes sense, Doctor.

ADDAMS : It's an open broadcast. Don't reply, or he'll know where we are.

MASTER (over Tannoy) : The whole of my life.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP, SPACE

MASTER (over Tannoy) : My destiny. The star was a diamond.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

MASTER : And the diamond... is a Whitepoint star.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP, SPACE

The Doctor gasps.

MASTER (over Tannoy) : And I have worked all night to sanctify that gift.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

MASTER : Now the star is mine. I can increase the signal and use it as a lifeline. Do you get it now ? Do you see ? Keep watching, Doctor. This should be... spectacular.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP, SPACE

MASTER (over Tannoy) : Over and out.

WILF : What's he on about ? What's he doing ? Doctor, what does that mean ?

DOCTOR : A Whitepoint star is only found on one planet, Gallifrey, which means... it's the Time Lords. The Time Lords are returning.

WILF : Well, that's good, isn't it ? That's your people.

The Doctor grabs the gun from Wilf's hands and, with a determined face, runs from the room.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

MASTER : Open up the nuclear bolt. Infuse the power lines to maximum.

One of the technicians enters one of the booths, pressing a button to release the lock on the other.

TECH-MASTER : Nuclear bolt accelerating, sir.

The Master walks to the device built for the occasion and places the diamond in it.

MASTER : Send the signal back and the link becomes a pathway.

The machine lights up and pulses out the beat. The Master moves to the center of the room and holds his arms out to his side, spinning slowly.

MASTER : Come home.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP FLIGHT DECK, SPACE

The Doctor rushes into the room and goes straight to the PA and switches it on. They hear the four beats repeated.

ADDAMS : What's that ?

ROSSITER (checks computer) : Coming from Earth. It's on every single wavelength.

 

INT. CITADEL CHAMBER, DAY

PRESIDENT : Contact ! At last.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

MASTER : We have contact.

 

INT. CITADEL, COUNCIL CHAMBER, DAY

The President strides forward, to face the Time Lords gathered in the large amphitheathre.

PRESIDENT : Now the High Council of Time Lords must vote. Whether we die here, today, or return to the waking world and complete the Ultimate Sanction, for this is the hour when either Gallifrey falls, or Gallifrey rises !

Holds up staff.

TIME LORDS : Gallifrey rises !

PRESIDENT : Gallifrey rises !

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP FLIGHT DECK, SPACE

WILF : But you said your people were dead, past tense.

DOCTOR (working on equipment) : Inside the Time War, when the whole War was time-locked - like, sealed inside a bubble. It's not a bubble but think of a bubble. Nothing can get in or get out of the time-lock. Don’t you see ? Nothing can get in or get out, except something that was already there.

WILF : The signal. Since he was a kid.

DOCTOR : If they can follow the signal, they can escape, before they die.

WILF : Well, big reunion. We'll have a party.

DOCTOR : There will be no party.

WILF : But I've heard you talk about your people like they're wonderful.

DOCTOR : That's how I choose to remember them, the Time Lords of old. But then they went to war, an endless war, and it changed them, right to the core. You’ve seen my enemies, Wilf. The Time Lords are more dangerous than any of them.

ADDAMS : Time Lords ? What lords ? Anyone want to explain ?

DOCTOR (points) : Right, you ! This is a salvage ship, yes ? You go trawling the asteroid fields for junk ?

ADDAMS : Yeah, what about it ?

DOCTOR : So, you've got asteroid lasers !

ROSSITER : Yeah, but they're all frazzled.

DOCTOR : Consider them unfrazzled. (flips a lever and two doors on opposite sides of the room slide open). You there - I'm going to need you on navigation. And you, get in the laser-pod. Wilfred ?

WILF : Yeah ?

DOCTOR : Laser number two. The old soldier's got one more battle.

WILF : Right.

Taps the Doctor on the arm and stands.

ADDAMS : This ship can't move. It's dead !

DOCTOR : Fix the heating.

The Doctor pushes to large levers on either side of the control panel and the ship starts up.

ADDAMS : But now they can see us.

DOCTOR : Oh, yes !

 

INT. UNIT HQ GENEVA, DAY

GENERAL-MASTER : Sir. We've got a fix. 105,000 miles in orbit.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP FLIGHT DECK, SPACE

ADDAMS : This is my ship and you're not moving it. Step away from the wheel.

DOCTOR : There's an old Earth saying, Captain, A phrase of great power, and wisdom, and consolation to the soul in times of need.

ADDAMS : What's that, then ?

DOCTOR : Allons-y !

The Doctor takes control and drives the ship forward to Earth.

 

INT. UNIT HQ GENEVA, DAY

UNIT-MASTER : He's moving, sir.

GENERAL-MASTER : Get a fix on him.

UNIT-MASTER : He's moving very fast.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP FLIGHT DECK, DAY

DOCTOR : Come on !

The ship begins to burn as it enters the atmosphere.

DOCTOR : Come on... !

ADDAMS : You are blinkin', flippin' mad.

DOCTOR : You two. What did I say ? Lasers.

ROSSITER : What for ?

DOCTOR : Because of the missiles. We've got to fight off the entire planet !

Rossiter and Wilf head for the laser pods.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

GENERAL-MASTER (onscreen) : All NATO defences coordinated, sir, awaiting your command.

MASTER : I don't need HIM. Any second now, I'll have Time Lords to spare. Take him out. Launch missiles !

 

INT. UNIT HQ GENEVA, DAY

GENERAL-MASTER : Launch missiles.

UNIT-MASTERS : Missiles launching in three, two, one, zero.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP LASER POD 1, DAY

Wilf arrives at the laser pod and sits in the chair.

WILF : Hey ! (whistles). How does this thing work ?

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP LASER POD 2, DAY

Rossiter is getting into his own chair.

ROSSITER : The tracking's automatic. Just deploy the trigger on the joystick.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP LASER POD 1, DAY

Wilf tries to get the hang of the controls as the pod rotates.

WILF : Oh... Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa !

 

EXT. VINVOCCI SHIP, DAY

Missiles lock onto the ship.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP, FLIGHT DECK, DAY

ADDAMS : We've got incoming.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP, LASER POD 2, DAY

Rossiter is getting into his own chair.

ROSSITER : Look at this one ! Oh, my God !

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP, FLIGHT DECK, DAY

DOCTOR : You two ! Open fire !

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP, LASER POD 2, DAY

ROSSITER : Oh, my God !

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP, FLIGHT DECK, DAY

The Doctor takes evasive action.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP LASER PODS, DAY

Wilf is still getting used to the controls, and Rossiter lets out an undulating war cry a la Xena.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP FLIGHT DECK, DAY

DOCTOR : Open fire ! Come on, Wilf !

 

EXT. VINVOCCI SHIP, DAY

Wilf and Rossiter fire at the missiles, causing them to explode.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP, LASER POD 1, DAY

WILF : Whoo ! Oh, I wish Donna could see me now.

 

INT. UNIT HQ GENEVA, DAY

GENERAL-MASTER : Second wave. Launch missiles.

UNIT-MASTER : Yes, sir.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP FLIGHT DECK, DAY

ADDAMS : And there's more. 16 of them. Oh ! And another 16.

DOCTOR : Go to the rear-gun lasers !

Addams heads for the door.

DOCTOR : You two, open fire ! NOW !

Rossiter and Wilf take out a large number of missiles. The Doctor's evasive flying sends Addams back and forth across the room.

DOCTOR : No, you don't !

The Doctor sends the ship into a spin. Through the Doctor's piloting and the shooting of Rossiter and Wilf, they destroy all the missiles. In the course of the battle, the front window is blown away.

DOCTOR : Lock the navigation !

ADDAMS : Onto what ?

DOCTOR : England ! The Naismith mansion !

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

GENERAL-MASTER (onscreen) : He's heading straight for you.

MASTER : But too late. They are coming.

 

INT. CITADEL CHAMBER, DAY

The President strides forward past Time Lord 1 where two others are standing, hands over their faces in shame.

PRESIDENT : The vote is taken. Only two stand against and will stand as monument to their shame, like the Weeping Angels of old. Now the vanguard stands prepared, as the children of Gallifrey return to the universe, to Earth.

They are enveloped in a bright light.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

The Master laughs excitedly. The space in front of the Gate glows brightly.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP FLIGHT DECK, DAY

DOCTOR : Destination ?

ADDAMS : 50 klicks and closing.

 

EXT. VINVOCCI SHIP, DAY

The ship reaches the English coast.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP, FLIGHT DECK, DAY

ADDAMS : We've locked on to the house. We are going to stop, though ?

The Doctor is grimly determined and doesn’t answer.

ADDAMS : Doctor ? We are going to stop ?!

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

The Master laughs and jumps in place.

MASTER : Closer ! And closer ! And closer !

Red silhouetted figures appear in the light.

 

EXT. VINVOCCI SHIP, DAY

The ship zooms over the countryside.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP FLIGHT DECK, DAY

Wilf and Rossiter arrive back on the flight deck.

WILF : Doctor ! Doctor, you said you were going to die.

ADDAMS : He said what ?!

WILF : But is that all of us ? I won't stop you, sir, but is this it ?

 

EXT. VINVOCCI SHIP, DAY

The ship continues on its path.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

The Master watches, hand shading his eyes, as the five Time Lords materialize. Naismith-Master is looking through the window.

NAISMITH-MASTER : I think I should warn you...

MASTER : Not now !

 

EXT. VINVOCCI SHIP, DAY

The Doctor aims the ship right at the mansion, pulling up at the last moment.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP FLIGHT DECK, DAY

The Doctor lifts a hatch from the flight deck floor. With the gun in hand, he pauses to look at Wilf before jumping from the ship.

 

EXT. VINVOCCI SHIP, DAY

The Doctor falls through the sky.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

The Doctor crashes through the glass dome and falls to the floor in the center of the room on his stomach. He lifts the revolver in a shaking hand and aims it at the President. Weak from his fall, his arm drops to the floor. He tries to stand.

PRESIDENT (strides forward) : My Lord Doctor. My Lord Master. We are gathered for the end.

The Doctor just lies on the floor, panting.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP, FLIGHT DECK, DAY

Addams takes control of the ship.

WILF : Just... just turn it round, land it !

ADDAMS : We are not going in there.

WILF : I am NOT leaving that man on his own, not today. Land it !

Addams makes a face but changes direction.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

Grunting, the Doctor slowly rises, first to all fours and then kneels, resting on the back of his legs.

DOCTOR : Listen to me. You can't...

PRESIDENT : It is a fitting paradox that our salvation comes at the hands of our most infamous child.

DOCTOR : Oh, he's not saving you. Don't you realise what he's doing ?

MASTER : Hey, no, hey ! That's mine. Hush. Look around you. I've transplanted myself into every single human being. But who wants a mongrel little species like them ? Because now I can transplant myself into every single Time Lord. Oh, yes, Mr President, sir, standing there all noble and resplendent and decrepit. Think how much better you're going to look as me !

The President holds out his gauntlet-covered hand, and, as it glows, the human race returns to themselves.

MASTER : No, don't... ! No, no, no, stop it ! No, no ! No, no ! Don't !

PRESIDENT : On your knees, mankind.

The humans in the room kneel, scared.

MASTER : No, that's fine, that's good, because you said salvation. I still saved you, don't forget that.

PRESIDENT : The approach begins.

There is a low rumbling and the room gets brighter.

MASTER : Approach of what ?!

DOCTOR : Something is returning. Don't you ever listen ? That was the prophecy. Not someone, something.

MASTER : What is it ?

DOCTOR : They're not just bringing back the species. It's Gallifrey. Right here, right now.

 

SPACE

In the space above Earth, a glowing red planet appears.

 

INT. NOBLE HOUSE, PARLOR

SHAWN : Donna. Where's Donna ?

Shawn and Sylvia look around in desperation for Donna, but then the Earth begins to shake. They run to the door.

 

EXT. NOBLE HOUSE, FRONT, DAY

People are running through the streets, screaming. Shawn and Sylvia run into the street and look up at the sky. Gallifrey is looming closer.

SHAWN : Donna ? Donna ! Donna !

Runs off to find her.

SYLVIA : Oh, Doctor... please !

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, CORRIDOR, DAY

Wilf makes his way through the corridors.

 

INT. VINVOCCI SHIP, FLIGHT DECK, DAY

ADDAMS : We're getting out of here. This whole planet's going to be knocked out of orbit.

ROSSITER : What about the Doctor ?

ADDAMS : Well, he said he was dying.

Starts the ship.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

The humans run from the room screaming.

MASTER (on one knee) : But I... I did this. I get the credit ! I'm on your side.

 

EXT. NAISMITH MANSION, DAY

Everyone runs outside, screaming. They look up and see Gallifrey.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

Wilf fights his way into the room.

WILF : Come on, get out of the way ! Get out of the way ! Doctor...

There is an urgent knocking. One of the technicians is locked in the booth.

TECH : Somebody, please !

WILF : All right ! I've got you.

Goes into the other booth.

DOCTOR : Wilf, don't... Don't !

Wilf presses the button to release the other booth.

WILF : I've got you. Come on. Go on.

The Tech runs from the room.

 

EXT. NAISMITH MANSION, DAY

Gallifrey gets closer.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

MASTER (stands) : But this is fantastic, isn't it ?

The Doctor glares at him.

MASTER : The Time Lords restored.

DOCTOR : You weren't there in the final days of the War. You never saw what was born. But if the time-lock's broken, then everything's coming through, not just the Daleks, but the Skaro Degradations, the Horde of Travesties, the Nightmare Child, the Could-Have-Been King with his army of Meanwhiles and Never-weres, the War turning to hell. And that's what you opened, right above the Earth. Hell is descending !

MASTER : My kind of world.

DOCTOR : Just listen ! ‘Cause even the Time Lords can't survive that !

PRESIDENT : We will initiate the Final Sanction. The end of time will come at my hand. The rupture will continue, until it rips the Time Vortex apart.

MASTER : That's suicide.

PRESIDENT : We will ascend to become creatures of consciousness alone, free of these bodies, free of time, and cause and effect, while creation itself ceases to be.

DOCTOR : You see now ? That's what they were planning in the final days of the War. I had to stop them.

MASTER : Then take me with you, Lord President. Let me ascend into glory.

Kneels with arms outstretched.

PRESIDENT : You are diseased, albeit a disease of our own making. No more.

The Master lowers his arm, realizing he can’t talk his way out of this. The President holds out the gauntlet-covered hand. As the energy starts to hum, there is a click. The Doctor aims the revolver at the President as he stands in front of the Master.

PRESIDENT : Choose your enemy well. We are many. The Master is but one.

MASTER : But he's the President. Kill him, and Gallifrey could be yours !

The Doctor turns, now aiming the gun at the Master.

MASTER : He's to blame, not me ! Oh, the link is inside my head. Kill me, the link gets broken, they go back. You never would, you coward. Go on then. Do it.

The Doctor turns back to the President.

MASTER : Exactly. It's not just me, it's him. He's the link, kill him !

PRESIDENT : The final act of your life is murder. But which one of us ?

The Doctor looks past the President and sees one of the dissenters lower her hands from her face. It is the Woman who kept appearing to Wilf. There are tears running down her face. They know each other, it’s obvious the way they look at one another. She motions with her eyes. The Doctor switches position once more. The Master looks at him somewhat sadly.

MASTER: Get out of the way.

The Master smiles as he dives out of the way and the Doctor shoots the device holding the diamond and completing the link. The machine goes up in flames.

DOCTOR : The link is broken. Back into the Time War, Rassilon. Back into hell.

VISIONARY (v.o.) : Gallifrey falling !

SPACE

VISIONARY (v.o.) : Gallifrey falls !

Gallifrey begins to flicker.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

RASSILON : You'll die with me, Doctor.

DOCTOR : I know.

Rassilon holds out his hand as the Doctor stands there, accepting. The Woman covers her eyes once more.

MASTER (stands) : Get out of the way.

The Master shoots a bolt of energy and the Doctor gets out of the way just in time. The bolt strikes Rassilon in the chest and he staggers backwards.

MASTER : You did this to me ! All of my life ! (uses other hand). You made me ! (with each bolt, he steps closer). One ! Two ! Three ! FOUR !

The Master is within the pull of the link and gets sent back to Gallifrey with the others.

SPACE

Gallifrey flickers and fades.

 

EXT. NOBLE HOUSE, FRONT, DAY

Gallifrey moves away from Earth. The people in the street laugh in relief and hug each other. Sylvia smiles.

 

INT. NAISMITH MANSION, LAB, DAY

The Doctor is lying on his back on the floor. He rolls onto his side with a groan.

DOCTOR : I'm alive. I've... There was... (pushes himself into a sitting position). I'm still alive.

Laughs shakily. As the Doctor comes to terms with his survival, there are four knocks on glass. The Doctor's eyes go wide at the realization. The four knocks repeat twice before the Doctor turns around to see Wilf in the booth. Wilf taps again and gives a little wave.

WILF : They've gone, then ? Good-oh. If you could let me out... ?

DOCTOR : Yeah.

WILF : Only, this thing seems to be making a bit of a noise.

DOCTOR (stands) : The Master... left the nuclear bolt running. It's gone into overload.

WILF : And that's bad, is it ?

DOCTOR : No... ’cause all the excess radiation gets vented inside there. Vinvocci glass contains it. All 500,000 rads, about to flood that thing.

WILF : Oh ! (chuckles). Well, you'd better let me out, then.

DOCTOR : Except it's gone critical. Touch one control and it floods. (takes out the sonic). Even this would set it off.

WILF : I'm sorry.

DOCTOR (whispers) : Sure.

WILF : Look, just leave me.

DOCTOR (breaking) : OK. Right, then... I will. (paces). ‘Cause you had to go in there, didn't you ? You had to go and get stuck, oh, yes ! ‘Cause that's who you are, Wilfred. You were always this. Waiting for me all this time.

WILF : No, really, just leave me. I'm an old man, Doctor. I've had my time.

DOCTOR : Well, exactly. Look at you. Not remotely important. But me ? I could do so much more. (yells at the ceiling). So much more ! But this is what I get. My reward. And it's not fair! (pushes items off a desk and breathes heavily). Ohhh... Lived too long.

Walks across the room.

WILF : No... no, no, please, please don't. No, don't. Don't... Please don't ! Please !

The Doctor puts his hand on the door to the other booth.

DOCTOR : Wilfred... it's my honour. Better be quick. Three, two, one.

The Doctor steps inside the booth and presses the button, releasing Wilf. His booth his then flooded with radiation. The Doctor groans and slides down to the floor. He curls up in pain. Wilf watches until the machine switches off. The Doctor slowly unwinds and sits up.

WILF : What... ? Hello.

DOCTOR : Hi.

WILF : Still with us ?

DOCTOR (stands with a gasp) : The system's dead. I absorbed it all. Whole thing's kaput. (puts his hand on the door). Oh. Now it opens, yeah.

Steps out.

WILF : There we are then, safe and sound. Mind you, you're in hell of a state. You've got some battle scars there.

The Doctor covers his face with his hands. There’s a slight sizzling noise, and, when the Doctor removes his hands, the cuts are healed.

WILF : But they've... Your face ! How did you do that ?

DOCTOR (looks at hands) : It's started.

Wilf walks over and hugs the Doctor, sobbing into his jacket. The Doctor remains stoic.

 

INT. NOBLE HOUSE, PARLOR, DAY

Donna is lying on the couch, unconscious. Shawn presses his hand to her forehead.

SHAWN : It's no good. She's freezing. How long was she lying there ? It's like hypothermia ! Try them again.

SYLVIA : I did, it's engaged. Everyone's dialling 999, I can't get through.

SHAWN : We've got to do something. Wake her up. Donna, can you hear me ? Donna ?

Sylvia hears a strange metallic thrumming. It becomes the sound of the TARDIS materializing. Donna's eyes flicker open.

SHAWN : Donna ? It's me, I'm here. You're safe, you're home.

DONNA : But... I was... What happened ? Did I miss something... again ?

Sylvia smiles and runs out as Shawn kisses Donna's hand.

 

EXT. NOBLE HOUSE, FRONT, DAY

Sylvia stands in the doorway and smiles when she sees Wilf and the Doctor step out from the TARDIS.

DOCTOR : Oh, she's smiling. As if today wasn't bad enough. Anyway... Don't go thinking this is goodbye, Wilf. I'll see you again, one more time.

WILF : What do you mean ? When's that ?

DOCTOR : Just keep looking. I'll be there.

WILF : Where are you going ?

DOCTOR : To get my reward.

Goes into the TARDIS and closes the door.

 

EXT. WAREHOUSE DISTRICT, DAY

Martha Jones runs down a paved area. She is dressed in black and carrying a rifle. Something is firing at her. She runs and ducks behind a concrete wall where Mickey Smith is waiting, also in black with a rifle.

MICKEY : I told you to stay behind.

MARTHA : You looked like you needed help. Besides, you're the one who persuaded me to go freelance.

MICKEY : Yeah, but we're being fired at by a Sontaran. A dumpling with a gun. And this is no place for a married woman.

MARTHA : Well, then. You shouldn't have married me.

The Sontaran gets the couple in his sights from behind them. He is standing on a catwalk in the warehouse. Just as he his about to fire, there is a crash and it falls to the floor. The Doctor stands behind it, mallet in hand. He looks at his former companions.

MICKEY (looking at map) : If we go in here and down to the factory floor and down past that corridor, then he won't know that we're here.

MARTHA (sees the Doctor) : Mickey... Mickey !

MICKEY (sees the Doctor) : Hey !

They look at each other until the Doctor walks away. The couple hugs and we hear the TARDIS dematerialize.

 

EXT. STREET, DAY

Luke Smith walks down the street, talking on his mobile.

LUKE : That was the maddest Christmas ever, Clyde. Mum doesn't know what happened. She got Mr Smith to put out a story saying wi-fi went mad, all over the world, giving everyone hallucinations. How else do you explain it ? (crosses the street without looking). Everyone with a different face...

The Doctor runs and pulls Luke to safety as a car honks its horn.

LUKE : But it's you ! You're...

The Doctor heads back to the TARDIS.

LUKE : Mum ! (looks before running across the street). Mum !

SARAH JANE : What ? What is it ?

LUKE : It's him. It's the Doctor.

Sarah Jane and Luke look back to the TARDIS. The Doctor unlocks the TARDIS and looks back at them. He raises his hand in a little wave. Sarah Jane smiles sadly.

 

INT. ALIEN BAR

While the tune “My Angel Put the Devil in Me” plays on the alien equivalent of a jukebox, various aliens (Judoon, Slitheen, Adipose, Hath, Graske) mingle. At the bar sits Jack Harkness, drowning his sorrows.

BARTENDER (passes Jack a note) : From the man over there.

Points over his shoulder. Jack looks up and sees the Doctor. The Doctor nods. Jack opens the note : “His name is Alonso”. Jack looks up and the Doctor nods to the man just taking the seat beside Jack. It is Alonso Frame (from “Voyage of the Damned”). Jack looks at Alonso and then back to the Doctor, who salutes a finger to his forehead. Jack gives him a proper salute. The Doctor walks away.

JACK : So, Alonso, going my way ?

ALONSO : How do you know my name ?

JACK : I'm kinda psychic.

ALONSO : Really ?

JACK : Yeah.

ALONSO : Do you know what I'm thinking right now ?

JACK (smiles) : Oh, yeah.

Alonso smiles and nods. Jack laughs and finishes his drink.

 

INT. BOOK STORE, DAY

A woman is signing her book : “A Journal of Impossible Things”. She is Verity Newman. She’s talking with a customer.

VERITY : No, it's not just a story, no. Every word of it is true. I found my great grandmother's diary in the loft. She was a nurse in 1913, and she fell in love with this man called John Smith, except he was a visitor... from another world. She fell in love with a man from the stars. And she wrote it all down.

Verity closes the book and slides it across the Man.

MAN : Thank you.

The Man leaves and another customer puts a book on the table.

VERITY : And who's it for ?

DOCTOR : The Doctor.

VERITY : “To the Doctor.” Funny, that's the name he used.

Looks up.

DOCTOR : Was she happy... in the end ?

VERITY : Yes. Yes, she was. Were you ?

The Doctor smiles ruefully, lip trembling. He picks up his book and leaves.

 

EXT. CHURCH, DAY

The church bells chime and flower petals are blown on the wind. Donna and Shawn exit the church to the cheers of well-wishers. Donna laughs and shows off her ring. Wilf kisses them both.

WILF : Three cheers. Hip, hip...

ALL : Hooray !

WILF : Hip, hip...

ALL : Hooray !

WILF : Hip, hip...

ALL : Hooray !

DONNA (organizes people) : Right, come on then, you lot. Get in ! This photo is just with friends. Come on. And I want all of you in it, come on. That's it. Well, friends, and Nerys. (takes her place front and center). I'm only joking. Oh, look at her !

NERYS: You made me wear peach.

DONNA : That's ‘cause you are a peach. Furry skin, stone inside, going off.

PHOTOGRAPHER : OK, smile.

ALL : Cheese !

MINNIE : How about it, Wilfred ?

WILF : Eh ?

MINNIE : Well, it's never too late.

Drops petals over his head.

WILF : Will you behave, Minnie ! Honestly !

MINNIE : I'm going to catch that bouquet.

Heads off.

WILF (chuckles) : Oh, dear.

Sylvia looks around and sees the Doctor standing in front of the TARDIS.

SYLVIA : Dad...

Sylvia taps Wilf on the arm and he turns around. They then walk over to where the Doctor stands.

WILF : And here you are, same old face. Didn't I tell you you'd be all right ? Oh ! They've arrested Mr Naismith. It was on the news. Crimes undisclosed. And his daughter. Both of 'em, locked up. Yeah, but I keep thinking, Doctor, there's one thing you never told me. That woman. Who was she ?

The Doctor looks away and he sees both Sylvia and Donna.

DOCTOR (reaches into inside jacket pocket) : I just wanted to give you this. (hands small envelope to Wilf). Wedding present. Thing is, I never carry money. So I just popped back in time, borrowed a quid off a really lovely man. Geoffrey Noble, his name was. "Have it," he said. (Sylvia gasps). "Have that on me."

Sylvia and Wilf head back to Donna who’s just had a photo taken with Nerys and the flower girl. Wilf hands her the envelope.

DONNA : Oh, don't tell me, it's a bill. Just what I need, right now. (opens it). A lottery ticket ?!

Wilf and Sylvia look at each other in shock.

DONNA : What a cheap present. Who was that ? Still, you never know, it's a triple rollover this week, I might get lucky. (slips the ticket in her bodice). Oi ! Shawn ! Come on, we're on a tight schedule, oxtail soup at 2.30.

Wilf and Sylvia smile and then look back at the Doctor. Wilf salutes him then the Doctor turns and enters the TARDIS. Wilf blows him a kiss and gets teary-eyed. The TARDIS dematerializes.

 

EXT. POWELL ESTATE, NIGHT

Rose and Jackie are walking across the lot in the snow.

ROSE : I'm late now, I've missed it. It's midnight. Mickey'll be calling me everything. This is your fault.

JACKIE : No, it’s not. It's Jimbo ! He said he was going to give us a lift, then he said his axle broke. I can't help it.

ROSE : Get rid of him, Mum, he's useless.

JACKIE : Listen to you ! With a mechanic. Be fair though, my time of life, I'm not gonna do much better.

ROSE : Don't be like that. You never know. There could be someone out there.

JACKIE : Maybe. One day. Happy New Year.

ROSE : Happy New Year !

They hug.

ROSE : Don't stay out all night.

JACKIE: Try and stop me.

The two split up. Rose walks past a doorway where the Doctor is standing, watching her. He grunts in pain and she turns around.

ROSE : You all right, mate ?

DOCTOR : Yeah.

ROSE : Too much to drink ?

DOCTOR : Something like that.

ROSE : Maybe it's time you went home.

DOCTOR : Yeah.

ROSE : Anyway... Happy New Year.

DOCTOR : And you.

Rose starts to walk away.

DOCTOR : What year is this ?

ROSE (stops) : Blimey, how much have you had ?!

The Doctor shrugs.

ROSE : 2005, January 1st.

DOCTOR : 2005 ? Tell you what. I bet you're going to have a really great year.

ROSE : Yeah ? See ya.

Smiles and runs off. The Doctor watches Rose enter her building. He grunts again in pain and walks along the wall, one hand resting on the bricks to support him. He turns the corner and sees the TARDIS. He struggles to stay upright and to even move forward. He cries out in pain and falls to the ground. He looks up to see Ood-Sigma standing there.

OOD-SIGMA : We will sing to you, Doctor. The universe will sing you to your sleep.

The Doctor stands slowly as a choir sings.

 

INT. ELDER COUNCIL CHAMBER

The Ood join their hands in a circle and the singing continues across the Ood-Sphere.

EXT. POWELL ESTATE, NIGHT

With a gritted teeth, the Doctor forces himself to continue.

OOD-SIGMA : This song is ending. But the story never ends.

The Doctor reaches the TARDIS, unlocks the door and steps inside.

INT. TARDIS

The Doctor leans heavily on the door after he closes it. Pulling himself along by the handrail, he makes his way to the console and takes off his coat. He looks at his right hand as it begins to glow with energy. He walks around the console, leaning on it heavily, finally setting it in motion. He continues the circuit and stops, just standing there.

DOCTOR (petulant) : I don't want to go.

The energy begins to flow from his face. He holds out both hands slowly. He throws his arms out to his side and his head back as the energy pours from him. It is too much for the TARDIS and it catches fire and beams collapse. His new body screams and gasps before taking inventory.

DOCTOR : Legs. I've still got legs, good. (kisses his knee). Arms. Hands. Ooh, fingers, lots of fingers. Ears, yes. Eyes, two. Nose, I've had worse. Chin, blimey. Hair... (runs hand through longer hair). I'm a girl ! (feels Adam’s apple). No ! No... I'm not a girl. (pulls hair in front of eyes). And still not ginger ! And something else, something important, I'm, I'm... I'm... (explosion). Ha ! Crashing !

SPACE

The TARDIS tumbles back to Earth.

INT. TARDIS

DOCTOR (whoops in excitement) : Geronimo !
