Références et continuités

  • En VO, lorsque le ganger du Docteur prend vie, et qu'il a du mal à se stabiliser, il prononce des phrases caractéristiques de ses précédentes incarnations. Ainsi, on l'entend dire la phrase «One day we shall get back… yes, one day » («Un jour nous reviendrons… oui, un jour»), qui est une phrase prononcée par le premier Docteur dans l'épisode An Unearthly Child. Il prononce aussi «Reverse the polarity of the neutron flow » («Inversez la polarité du flux de neutrons»), qui est une phrase récurrente du troisième Docteur. On l'entend aussi parler avec la voix de Tom Baker (le 4ème Docteur) lorsqu'il dit vouloir des Jelly Babies puis avec la voix de David Tennant (le 10ème Docteur).
  • Le Docteur appelle son TARDIS « Sexy » comme dans l'épisode L'Âme du TARDIS et l'appelle « elle » (« She ») plus d'une fois.
  • Le pseudonyme que prend le Docteur afin de le différencier de son ganger est une nouvelle fois John Smith (L'École des retrouvailles, La Loi des Judoons, La Famille de sang, Smith, la Montre et le Docteur, Agatha Christie mène l'enquête ou encore Un passager de trop).
  • Le Docteur appelle Rory « Roranicus Pondicus » de son nom de romain dans La Pandorica s'ouvre.
  • Pensant qu'elle parle à son ganger, Amy prévient le Docteur de sa future mort dans l'épisode L'Impossible Astronaute, première partie.
  • On revoit la femme à l'œil masqué des épisodes précédents (à la 13ème minute et la 44ème) deux fois dans cet épisode ainsi que l'explication de ses apparitions en fin d'épisode. Par le même artifice, la mystérieuse grossesse/non-grossesse d'Amy, dont l'histoire était entamée dans L'Impossible Astronaute, deuxième partie trouve un début d'explication.

Script VO épisode 606 "The almost people" (part. 2)

(Recap of 605)


The Flesh Doctor screams and twists as he absorbs all the Doctor's memories and channels past incarnations.

GANGER DOCTOR : What's happening ? I wonder if we'll get back. Yes, one day... Aaagh ! I've reversed the polarity of the neutron flow.

DOCTOR : The Flesh is struggling to cope with our past regenerations. Hold on !

GANGER DOCTOR (4th Doctor’s voice) : Would you like a jelly-baby ? (regular voice). Why ? Why !?

DOCTOR : Why ? Why what ?

GANGER DOCTOR (10th Doctor’s voice) : Hello. I'm the Doctor. (regular voice). No, let it go, we've moved on !

DOCTOR : Hold on, hold on, you can stabilise !

Amy starts to walk to the Doctor but Jimmy pulls her back.

GANGER DOCTOR : I've reversed the jelly-baby of the neutron flow. Would you like a... (grips the Doctor's jacket). Doctor... Doctor... I'm... I'm the... I can't.

DOCTOR : No, listen, hold on. Hold on !

GANGER DOCTOR : No-o-o-o ! (shoves the Doctor away). Aaaagh !

Is in his half-formed state.



The Ganger Doctor grips his head. The team members barricade the door.

BUZZER : I think I liked it best when they were being noisy.


The Gangers walk away down the hall.


Amy goes to the Doctor.

AMY : Doctor, we need you. Get over here.


AMY : Doctor !

DOCTOR : Cybermats.

GANGER DOCTOR : Do we have time for this ?

DOCTOR : We make time. I'd like more proof that you're me. Cybermats ?

GANGER DOCTOR : Created by the Cybermen. They kill by feeding off brainwaves.

Amy runs back to the door.

AMY : Are you sure there aren't any big guns with bits on ?

BUZZER : Yeah, big guns would be good right now.

JIMMY (leaning against the door) : Why would we have guns ? We're a factory. We mine.

There is a hissing and smoke comes through the door.

AMY : Acid.

The Gangers on the other side of the door begin to pound on it. The two Doctors stand side-by-side.

GANGER DOCTOR : Rory and Amy may not trust both of us.

DOCTOR : Are you thinking what I'm thinking ?

GANGER DOCTOR : Inevitably.

DOCTOR : I'm glad we're on the same...

GANGER DOCTOR : Wavelength. You see, great minds.

DOCTOR : Exactly. So, what's the plan ?

GANGER DOCTOR : Save them all, humans and gangers.

DOCTOR : Sounds wonderful.

GANGER DOCTOR : Is that what you were thinking ?

DOCTOR : It's just so inspiring to hear me say it.


AMY : Doctor, come on !

GANGER DOCTOR : So, what now, Doctor ?

DOCTOR : Well, time to get cracking, Doctor.

They both walk towards the others.

DOCTORS :  Hello ! Sorry...

GANGER DOCTOR : But we had to establish a few...

DOCTOR : Ground rules.

Amy notices that Doctor 1 is wearing black shoes while Doctor 2 is wearing brown shoes.

GANGER DOCTOR : Formulate a...

DOCTOR : Protocol.

GANGER DOCTOR : Protocol. Very posh.

DOCTOR : A protocol between us. Otherwise...

GANGER DOCTOR : It gets horribly embarrassing.

DOCTOR : And potentially confusing.

AMY : I'm glad you've solved the problem of confusing.

GANGER DOCTOR : That's sarcasm.

DOCTOR : She's very good at sarcasm.

The Doctors turn to Amy and speak in unison.

DOCTORS : Breathe !

AMY : What ?

GANGER DOCTOR : We have to get you off this island.

DOCTOR : And the gangers too.

CLEAVES : Sorry, would you like a memo from the last meeting ? They're trying to kill us !

DOCTOR : They're scared.

AMY : Doctor, we're trapped in here.

DOCTOR (joins others) : I don't think so. The Flesh Bowl is fed by cabling from above.

GANGER DOCTOR : But where are the earthing conduits ?

DOCTOR : All this piping must go down into a tunnel or a shaft or something, yes ? With us ? (removes paneling and finds a grate). Yowza ! An escape route.

Amy mouths “Yowza” questioningly.

DOCTOR : You know, I'm starting to get a sense of just how impressive it is to hang out with me.

GANGER DOCTOR : Do we tend to say "Yowza" ?

DOCTOR : That's enough, let it go, OK ? We're under stress.

The Gangers break into the room and find it empty. Ganger Cleaves hears the sonic and sees the Doctor and her original on the other side of the grate. She hisses as they get away.


Ganger Jennifer is drawing circles/zeros on the wall with her finger.

GANGER JENNIFER : Stop. Stop. Stop, stop !

She strides purposefully down the corridor. After she passes, Rory peers out from a side tunnel and cautiously follows her.


In a different section of tunnel, one of the pipes has sprung a leak, shooting acid all over the ground.


In another section of tunnel, Amy and the Doctor are with the Originals.

BUZZER : The army will send a recon team.

CLEAVES : We need to contact the mainland.

AMY : What about Rory and Jen ? They are both out there.

DOCTOR : Takes a long time to find someone in a maze. I bet you lot have got a computer map.

CLEAVES : If we can get power running, we can scan for them.

They all start coughing.

AMY : Doctor, you said earlier to breathe.

DOCTOR : Very important, Pond. Breathe.

AMY : Yeah, I'm struggling to.

DOCTOR : Acid interacting with the stone.

GANGER DOCTOR : Creating an asphyxiant miasma.

CLEAVES : A what ?

GANGER DOCTOR : Chokey gas. Extra heavy. If we can get above it...

CLEAVES : The evac tower. This way !

Leads the way.


The Gangers are regrouping. Ganger Cleaves is rubbing her temples.

GANGER CLEAVES : Damned headaches. I'm so tired.

GANGER JIMMY : They could be anywhere. How are we going to find them ?

GANGER CLEAVES : Think about it. With all that gas, my guess would be the evac tower. Get above it. Try to get power up.

GANGER JIMMY : So ? Let's stop them.

GANGER CLEAVES : It's a narrow doorway. I could defend it easy enough. So can she.

Grimaces and rubs her forehead.


The Doctor and Amy are the first to enter the room coughing. The others follow and head straight for the control panels.

AMY (coughs) : Ohh ! I think I coughed so hard, I pulled a muscle or something.

DOCTOR : It's OK, it's easing off.

The Doctor checks the front while the Ganger Doctors ducks behind the panels as a bell chimes the hour.

JIMMY : It's midnight. It's Adam's birthday. My son's five. Happy birthday, bud.


GANGER JIMMY : Happy birthday, Adam. He'll be so excited. Out of bed at the crack of dawn. It's funny, he's got this wee dance he does when he gets overexcited.

Ganger Jennifer arrives in half-form.

GANGER JENNIFER : Listen to me. I tried to block the memories, but now I know I must remember. It's the eyes. The eyes are the last to go.

GANGER JIMMY : What are you talking about ?

GANGER JENNIFER : When they destroy us, the eyes are the last things to melt. And there's one question in those eyes - why ? Why should we suffer for the sake of human beings ?

GANGER DICKEN : I heard in India, there's over ten million gangers.

GANGER JENNIFER : We can reach out, inspire them to rise up.

GANGER CLEAVES : Revolution ? Look, I just... I just want to be left to live in peace, Jen.

GANGER JENNIFER : They will melt you. Have you become so human that you've forgotten the truth ? Don't you remember all the times you were decommissioned, or should I say executed ?

GANGER CLEAVES : No. We don't remember.

GANGER JENNIFER : Well, I do. It's us or them.

GANGER JIMMY : She's right.

Ganger Dicken stands and walks over to Ganger Jennifer, gripping her hand. Ganger Jimmy and Ganger Cleaves walk over to them and they join hands.

GANGER JENNIFER : I have a plan. And it'll destroy them all.


Cleaves is standing behind the console with one of the Doctors.

CLEAVES : Can you really get the power back ?

DOCTOR 1 : There's always some power floating around.

Doctor 1 ducks down behind the console as Doctor 2 stands up.

DOCTOR 2 : Sticking to the wires, like bits of lint.

AMY : Can you stop finishing each other's...

DOCTOR 1 : Sentences ? No probs.

DOCTOR 2 : Yes.

They both duck down.

AMY : Hang on. You said that the TARDIS was stuck in acid, so won't she be damaged ?

DOCTOR 1 : Nah. She's a tough old thing. Tough, old, sexy.

DOCTOR 2 : No, tough, dependable, sexy.

AMY : Come on. OK, how can... how can you both be real ?

DOCTOR 1 : Well, because... we are. I'm the Doctor.

DOCTOR 2 : So am I. We contain the knowledge of over 900 years of experience. We both wear the same bowtie, which is cool.

DOCTOR 1 : Because bowties are...

DOCTOR 2 : And always will be.

AMY : But you weren't linked up to the Flesh.

DOCTOR 1 : It must've been after I examined it. Thus, a new, genuine Doctor was created.

DOCTOR 2 : Ta-da !

AMY : But one of you was here first.

DOCTOR 1 : After the Flesh scanned me, I had an accident with a puddle of acid. Now new shoes, a situation which did not confront me learned self here.

DOCTOR 2 : That satisfy you, Pond ?

AMY : Don't call me Pond, please.

Both Doctors look at her.

AMY : What ?

DOCTOR 1:  Interesting. You definitely feel more affection for him than me.

AMY : No, I... Look, you're fine and everything, but he is the Doctor. No offence. Being almost the Doctor is pretty damn impressive.

DOCTOR 1 : Being almost the Doctor's like being no Doctor at all.

AMY : Don't overreact.

DOCTOR 1 : You might as well call me... Smith.

AMY : Smith ?

DOCTOR 1 : John Smith.

DOCTOR 2 : Communication a go-go !

They all run to the console to get it keyed up.

AMY : Find Rory ! Show me the scanny, tracky screen. Come on, Rory, let's be having you.

Cleaves pulls up the screen.

CLEAVES : There's no sign of him anywhere.

AMY : Come on, baby, show yourself.


The Gangers enter the room.

GANGER JIMMY : You're right, there's power.

GANGER CLEAVES : Well, boys, I don't know much, but I know my own minds. She'll be straight on the comlink to the mainland.


Cleaves speaks into the transmitter.

CLEAVES : St John's calling. Emergency Alpha.


GANGER CLEAVES : Let's see if we can intercept.

CLEAVES (over radio) : 'St John's calling the mainland. Are you receiving me, Captain ? Come in'.


CLEAVES : We'll never get a signal through this storm. St John's calling the mainland. Come in, this is urgent.

MAN (over radio) : 'We're just about reading you, St John's. How are you doing ? We've had all kinds of trouble here'.


CLEAVES (over radio) : 'Request immediate evacuation. We're under attack. The storm's affected our gangers.'


CLEAVES : They're running amok.

MAN (over radio) : 'Your gangers ?'

CLEAVES : Yes, our gangers are attacking us. We need you to take us off the island immediately and wipe them out.

The Doctors exchange a look.


MAN (over radio) : 'Copy that, St John's. Shuttle's dispatched. Hang on'.


CLEAVES : You'll need to airlift us off the roof of the evac tower.


CLEAVES (over radio) : 'And Captain, any further transmission sent by me must come with the following code word. I'm typing it, in case they're listening in.'

GANGER CLEAVES : Ooh. See how smart I am ? That's why I'm paid the big bucks.

MAN (over radio) : 'Got it. We'll swing in, get you out and decommission the Flesh'.

GANGER CLEAVES : Jennifer's right. We're going to have to fight if we want to survive.


Ganger Jennifer arrives at a machine and puts her palm over the scanner.

COMPUTER : 'Thermostatic override rejected. Can only be operated by recognised source'.

GANGER JENNIFER : I am recognised ! I'm Jennifer Lucas !

She tries again but the screen reads “Non-Human Access Prohibited”.


The Originals are preparing for the evacuation.

BUZZER : We've got to get out of here.

AMY : We're not leaving without them.

BUZZER : I want 'em found too, but it's about casualties, innit ? Can’t be helped.

Amy turns to one of the Doctors sitting beside her at the console.

AMY : What are you doing ?

DOCTOR 1 : Making a phone call.

AMY : Who to ?

DOCTOR 1 : No-one yet. It's on delay.

AMY : Right, not getting it. Why exactly are you making a phone call ?

Doctor 2 watches this exchange.

DOCTOR 1 : Because, Amy, I am and always will be the optimist, the hoper of far-flung hopes and the dreamer of improbable dreams. (spins in his chair). The wheels are in motion. Done.

Doctor 1 spins Amy's chair and she laughs before settling next to him but facing Doctor 2.

AMY : You know, really, there can be only one.

DOCTOR 1 : Hmm ?

AMY : Nothing. Carry on. Be amazing.

Amy hears a strange breathing noise and slowly walks towards it, stopping and looking at the stone wall. A small window slides open and she sees Eye-Patch Woman and gasps. She turns to look at Doctor 1, but when she turns back, the window is gone.

DOCTOR 1 : Amy ? What happened ?

AMY (goes back to her chair) : It's her again.

Doctor 2 looks at the same spot on the wall while the conversation goes on behind him.

DOCTOR 1 : It's who again ?

AMY : There's a woman I keep seeing, a woman with an eye-patch, and she has this habit of sliding walls open and staring at me. Doctor ?

DOCTOR 1 :  It's nothing.

AMY : Doesn't seem like nothing.

DOCTOR 1 : It's a time memory. Like a mirage. (slaps her thigh). It's nothing to worry about.

Spins back to work on the console.

DOCTOR 1 : It's in my head...

Doctor 2 closes his eyes in pain before heading out of the room.

JIMMY : Hey, hold on !

CLEAVES : Don't let him go.

AMY : Leave it to me.

Goes after him.


Doctor 2 is standing there, facing the wall. Amy slowly approaches him.

AMY : I'm sorry. What I said about you being almost the Doctor, it's just really hard, because I've been through so much with him. I've even seen... I've even seen the moment of his... Can you die ? If you really are the same, then you can die. You can be killed, and... I might have seen that happen.

DOCTOR 1 : Why ?

AMY : Why ? Because you invited us to see it. Your death !

Doctor 2 turns on Amy, grabs her shoulders and pushes her against the wall.

DOCTOR 1 : Why ?

AMY : You're hurting me.

DOCTOR 1 : It's all the eyes say ! Why ?! I can feel them as they work each day, knowing the time was coming for them to be thrown away again. "Not again, please !" And then they are destroyed and they feel death, and all they can say is, "Why ?"

Doctor 2 lets go and Amy runs away, back to the safety of Doctor 1.


DOCTOR 1 : Why ?

Amy enters the room.

AMY : Keep him away from me !

Doctor 2 enters and walks up to Doctor 1.

DOCTOR 1 : Did you sense it ?

DOCTOR 2 : Briefly. Not as strong as you.

DOCTOR 1 : Amy, I'm sorry.

AMY : No, you keep away ! We can't trust you.

DOCTOR 1 : It would appear I can connect to the Flesh.

AMY : Well, you are Flesh.

DOCTOR 1 : I'm beginning to understand what it needs.

AMY : What YOU want. You are it.

DOCTOR 1 : It's much more powerful than we thought. The Flesh can grow, correct ?

CLEAVES : Its cells can divide.

DOCTOR 1 (approaches Cleaves) : Well, now it wants to do that at will. It wants revenge. It's in pain, angry. It wants revenge.

AMY : I was right, you're not the Doctor. You can't ever be. You're just a copy.

CLEAVES (to Doctor 2) : Doctor, it might be best if you stayed over there for now, hmm ?

DOCTOR 1 : Hold on a minute. Hold your horses. I thought I'd explained this. I'm him, he's me.

Buzzer walks closer to use force if necessary.

CLEAVES : Doctor, we have no issue with you. But when it comes to your ganger...

DOCTOR 1 : Don't be so absurd.

CLEAVES : Buzzer ?

BUZZER : Sure, boss.

Doctor 2 makes a point of straightening his tie as Buzzer takes an empty oil drum and moves it to where Doctor 2 can sit.

BUZZER : Take a seat, mate.

DOCTOR 1 (sits) : Nice barrel, very comfy. Why not ?

DOCTOR 2 : Is this really what you want ?

Amy crosses her arms and looks coldly at Doctor 2.


Rory is walking through a tunnel, light in one hand and a wooden handle as a weapon in the other. He hears Jennifer shouting in the distance.

JENNIFER : Help me ! No ! Get away !

RORY : Jen ? Jen !


Rory walks down the stairs and sees Jennifer.


A second Jennifer appears.

JENNIFER 2 : I'm sorry. She found me.

JENNIFER 1 : Rory, listen to me.

JENNIFER 2 : Don't listen to her !

JENNIFER 1 : I'm Jennifer Lucas. This woman is Flesh.

Rory stands there, looking between the two of them.


MAN (over radio) : 'This is the shuttle. We're right above you, but we can't get low enough. Gamma static could fry our nav-controls. Sit tight. We'll get to you. Just...'.

Doctor 1 takes out the sonic screwdriver and scans Cleaves.

JIMMY : Hello ? Can you hear me ?

AMY : I can't find Rory. I'm going out there.

DOCTOR 1 : We could use the sonic to track him. Humans and gangers give off slightly different signals. The sonic can tell the difference.

AMY : Oh, so the sonic knows gangers are different, so the other Doctor is different.

DOCTOR 1 : He is the Doctor.

AMY : Not to me. I can tell.

DOCTOR 1 : Sure you're not prejudiced ?

AMY : Nice try, but I know, OK ? We've been through too much. You're my Doctor. End of.


RORY : So one of you is human, and one of you I sat with and talked with. Why can't you just tell me the truth ? The Doctor wants you to live and I'm with him all the way.

JENNIFER 1 (limps forward) : That's a lovely idea, Rory, but the Flesh want to kill us now.

RORY : You're limping. (to Jennifer2) : You're not.

JENNIFER 2 : So ? So what ? You think a ganger can't put on a limp ?

RORY : Show me your leg.

Jennifer 1 rolls up her trouser leg to show a red wound.

JENNIFER 1 : It got burnt while I was in the harness.

JENNIFER 2 : She's lying ! She's telling you what you want to hear !

RORY : Look, you can't fake a burn.

Jennifer 2 rushes Jennifer 1.

RORY : No ! No, you don't...

They fight each other as Rory watches.

RORY : Stop it ! Fighting each other is pointless. Come on. Please, please stop ! Jen... both Jens, stop it !

One of the Jennifers pushes the other away and she falls into a puddle of acid.

RORY : No !

JENNIFER : She... she attacked me. I didn't...

They watch as the other Jennifer dissolves.

JENNIFER : I knew you'd find me. We're in this together, Rory, and we've got to trust each other.

RORY : OK, come on. Let's go.

With one last look at the dissolved Flesh, Rory grabs the light and follows Jennifer out of the room.


BUZZER : Hey, there's a camera up. We've got a visual.

Amy rushes to look at the screen.

AMY : That's Rory and Jennifer.

CLEAVES : They're heading for the thermostatic room.

AMY : Let's go get them.

Doctor 1 flips the sonic before tossing it to Doctor 2.

AMY : Hang on.

CLEAVES : We can't let him go. Are you crazy ?

DOCTOR 1 : Am I crazy, Doctor ?

DOCTOR 2 : Well, you did once plumb your brain into the core of an entire planet just to halt its orbit and win a bet.

AMY : He can't go rescue them. I'm going.

DOCTOR 1 : Do you know, I want him to go. (stands and looks Amy in the face). And I'm rather adamant.

Doctor 2 stands.

BUZZER : Well, then, he'll need company, right, boss ? It's fine. I'll handle it.

DOCTOR 1 (snaps fingers) : Thank you, Buzzer. It'll be all right. I'll find him.

Doctor 2 leaves and Buzzer follows.

DOCTOR 1 : I can’t explain it to you now, but I need you to trust him. Can you do that for me, Amy ?

AMY : And what if you're wrong ?


Jennifer is leading Rory through a tunnel to a locked door. They are coughing.

JENNIFER : This is the thermostatic chamber. We can stir the oxygen supply from here.

Keys in the code.

RORY : What ?

JENNIFER : We're going to choke to death if we don't clean this air. Keep a look out in case of gangers.

Jennifer enters the room and Rory stays in the hall.


Rory runs into the room.


Jennifer is standing by a large console.

RORY : What's wrong ?

JENNIFER : It's this wheel. It's just too tough for a girl to turn. Are you feeling strong ?

RORY : I'll break out the big guns.

Holds up his arms to show off his muscles.

JENNIFER : This first.

Jennifer grabs Rory's hand and places it on the scanner.

COMPUTER : Human source recognised.

Rory turns the wheel.

COMPUTER : Thermostatic override granted.

They leave the room.


CLEAVES : These temperature gauges are rising. Jennifer and Rory must have shut off the underground cooling vents.

DICKEN : Why do that ? They'll kill us.

CLEAVES : There's a million gallons of boiling acid under our feet...

DOCTOR 1 : And now it's heating up the whole island. How long till it blows ?

There is an explosion that rocks the island.

DICKEN : Gangers or no gangers, we need to get the hell out of here.

CLEAVES : Shuttle ! We need evac. Where are you ? Can you hear me ? Can you... ?

Winces in pain and puts a hand to her forehead.

DOCTOR 1 (goes to Cleaves) : Cleaves ? Cleaves, sit down.

Helps her sit.

CLEAVES : I'm fine.


Ganger Cleaves is sitting down. Ganger Dicken brings her a drink.

GANGER DICKEN : You don't look good.

GANGER CLEAVES : Monsters never do. I'm fine. I remember medics doing tests.


CLEAVES : I'm waiting for results, so let it go.

DOCTOR 1 : It's a very deep parietal clot.

CLEAVES : Inoperable ?

DOCTOR 1 : On Earth, yes.

CLEAVES : Well, seeing as Earth is all that's on... offer... hmm. I'm no healthy spring chicken, and you're no weatherman. Right ?

There is another quake.

AMY : Something just cracked. I heard it.

DOCTOR 1 : Yeah, we can't stay here, let's go.

JIMMY : Let's shift !

CLEAVES : Cleaves to Shuttle. We need to move, and we can't be collected from the evac tower.

MAN (over radio) : 'Give us the codeword'.

CLEAVES : The codeword is...

Another quake rocks the building and the console goes up in sparks. Cleaves runs back to the console to give the codeword.

DOCTOR 1 : Cleaves ? Cleaves, it's dead, it's dead. (grabs Cleaves). WE need to get out of here. We need to get back downstairs and get those vents back on, come on.


GANGER CLEAVES : This is our chance. I can reroute the shuttle to the courtyard.

GANGER JIMMY : You can't guess the codeword.

GANGER CLEAVES : Yes, I can, Jimmy, because I created the codeword. (into radio) Shuttle, do you read me ? This is Foreman Cleaves.

MAN (over radio) : 'Read you. You got cut off. Say again ? What's the request ?'

GANGER CLEAVES : You need to reroute and pick us up from the courtyard.

MAN (over radio) : 'Courtyard - as soon as we can. Give me the codeword'.

GANGER CLEAVES : Shuttle, the codeword is "Bad Boy". I repeat, "Bad Boy".

MAN (over radio) : 'Copy that. The courtyard. Still want us to take care of those gangers ?'

GANGER CLEAVES : Negative. They've all been incinerated.

GANGER JIMMY : Bad Boy ? Good call.

GANGER CLEAVES : Yeah, well, it wasn't luck. We're the same person.


Jennifer is leading Rory.

JENNIFER : This room's always sealed. Power surge must have thrown the bolts.

Rory follows and stops with a look of horror.

RORY : What is that ?

In a corner of the room is a pile of partial Flesh bodies.

JENNIFER : Discarded Flesh. Faulty, probably. Just thrown away. Look at them.

Rory walks closer and peers at one of the faces.

JENNIFER : One of my old gangers.

The eyes open and Rory falls back with a gasp.

JENNIFER : Left to rot, fully conscious. Can you imagine what kind of hell they're in ?

RORY : But Cleaves, the company, how could they do this ? How could they ?

JENNIFER : Who are the real monsters ?

RORY : We can't let this carry on. Jen, we have to make people see !

JENNIFER : OK, Rory. I have an idea. You came for me. We have a bond. Right ? We trust each other.

RORY : Yeah.

JENNIFER : So trust me on this.


Doctor 2 is scanning with the sonic. Buzzer is following.

DOCTOR 1 : I'm getting something.

BUZZER : Is it human ?

DOCTOR 1 : Yeah, it's human, but it's fading. It's fading. This is bad. Fading is very... bad.

They find Jennifer lying on the ground.

DOCTOR 1 : Aagh ! The signal's gone. (touches Jennifer). She's... dead. She was hanging onto the edge of life and she just... just slipped away. Oh, Jennifer, I'm so sorry. She's been out here for hours.

BUZZER : But if the real Jen's been lying out here...

DOCTOR 1 : Rory's in trouble.

Buzzer hits Doctor 2 on the back of the head with a torch and he falls to the ground.

BUZZER : Sorry, pal, it's boss's orders. Us and them, innit ?


Cleaves enters a hallway closely followed by Doctor 1 and the others. In the wall are eyes watching their every move.

DOCTOR 1 : Ah. The eyes have it.

AMY : Why are they here ?

DOCTOR 1 : To accuse... us.

CLEAVES : Ignore them. It's not far.


Buzzer is making his way back to the others when another quake hits.

BUZZER : I should have been a postman like me dad.

Buzzer continues on but stops when he hears a feminine voice. He makes his way down the stairs.

WOMAN : Shh. I'm here. I'm here. I'm with you. I know, it hurts. I'm sorry. Go to sleep.

Buzzer sees Ganger Jennifer speaking to the discarded bodies of Flesh.


BUZZER : You killed her. You killed our Jen.

GANGER JENNIFER (stands) : And I'm stronger, Buzz. I can grow !

Ganger Jennifer's mouth opens wide, jaw distended, and she rushes towards Buzzer, who screams.


Doctor 1 and Cleaves work to change the settings.

DOCTOR 1 : It's a chemical chain reaction now. I can't stop it. This place is going to blow sky high.

CLEAVES : Exactly how long have we got ?

DOCTOR 1 : An hour ? Five seconds ? Er, somewhere in between.

There is an explosions, the klaxon sounds and the machinery begins to hiss.

DOCTOR 1 : Out !

They all run from the room.


Amy's the first to exit the room and head down the tunnel. Rory finds them.

RORY : All right ?

AMY : Oh, Rory ! Oh, Rory.

Hugs him.

RORY : There's a way out. Jennifer found it. A secret tunnel under the crypt.

CLEAVES : From the crypt ? It's not on the schematics.

RORY : It runs right out of the monastery. Maybe even under the TARDIS, Doctor. Follow me.

Rory heads off and the others follow. Doctor 1 hesitates before joining them.


Doctor 2 wakes to see the Gangers standing above him.

DOCTOR 1 : Got anything for a sore head ?

CLEAVES : This is how they'll always treat us. Do you see now ? After all, you're one of us... Doctor.

DOCTOR 1 (puts the sonic in his inside jacket pocket) : Call me Smith. John Smith.


Cleaves leads the way.

JIMMY : We can't leave without Buzzer.

CLEAVES : I'll go back for him.

RORY : Doctor, look... I’d better tell you, I haven't been quite straight with you...

Ganger Jennifer reaches out in front of Rory, closing the door and locking the others in.

DOCTOR 1 : Rory !

The Doctor and Cleaves try to open the door.


RORY : C’mon, Jennifer, we don't need to lock them up. We should just show them what we've found.

GANGER JENNIFER : I don't think so.


DOCTOR 1 : Rory Pond, Roranicus Pondicus !

AMY : Rory ! What the hell are you playing at ?


RORY : They've been throwing away old Flesh and leaving it to rot, alive ! I think the world should see that.

DOCTOR 1 : Rory, there is no time. This factory's about to explode !

RORY (to Ganger Jennifer) : Are you sure about this ? Cos I'm not. Let them out.

GANGER JENNIFER : The little girl got strong.

RORY : What ?

GANGER JENNIFER : The little girl lost on the moors in her red wellies ? Looking for a way home ? Well, she got strong, Rory. I told you, remember ?

RORY : But that wasn't... it was the other Jennifer that told me about being a little girl.

GANGER JENNIFER : Oh ? What other Jennifer ?

Her eyes glow.

RORY : Well, the... the... wait, you tricked me ? Let me go, I'll open the door.

Ganger Jennifer grabs him by the arm.

RORY : Let me... (to Amy) : I'm sorry !

Rory is dragged away. Amy pounds on the window in disgust. Ganger Cleaves looks through at Cleaves.

GANGER CLEAVES : We have to be free.

CLEAVES : I'm sorry too, Miranda. Of all the humans in the world, you had to pick the one with the clot. But hey, them's the breaks. Welcome to the human race.

Ganger Cleaves walks away.


Doctor 1 takes readings of the acid with the sonic.

DOCTOR 1 : This is going to overheat and fill the room with acid, just as a point of interest.

CLEAVES : And we can't stop it ?

DOCTOR 1 : Just as a point of interest, no.


Rory is yelling at Ganger Jennifer.

RORY : You created another ganger just to trick me. You tricked me. When I found you, you were both Flesh and you tricked me into trusting you ! Jen's dead, isn't she ?

Doctor 2 is sitting on the table.

DOCTOR 1 : She's gone, Rory. Gone.

MAN (over radio) : 'Shuttle, we're dropping down on our approach. Stand by for evac'.

GANGER JENNIFER : The humans will be melted, as they deserve. And then the factory will be destroyed. Once we get to the mainland, the real battle begins. The humans won't stand a chance. You're one of us, Doctor. Join the revolution.

RORY : I've got to go and get them out.

Doctor 2 pushes Rory back and stands by Ganger Jennifer. Rory looks betrayed.


Dicken lowers the cap over the vat.

JIMMY : It'll never hold her.

DOCTOR 1 : If you have a better plan, I'm all ears. In fact, if you have a better plan, I'll take you to a planet where EVERYONE is all ears.

The lid slams shut.


RORY : Doctor, we can't just let them die.

DOCTOR 1 (looks at watch) : Ring Ring !

RORY : Doctor !

DOCTOR 1 : Ring Ring !

Pushes Rory back.


Cleaves is watching the vat.

CLEAVES : The acid's eating through.

The building shakes.


Rory tries to take advantage of the quake and get past the Gangers.

DOCTOR 1 : Stay !

Points at Rory.

RORY (stops and puts hands up) : OK.

The phone rings.

DOCTOR 1 : Ah, that'll be the phone. Somebody get the phone. Jimmy, get the phone. No ? Fine, I'll get the phone. Stay put.

Doctor 2 picks up the phone and uses the sonic. A hologram appears of a young boy.

OPERATOR : 'Thank you for booking your holo-call with Morpeth Jet...'

DOCTOR 1 : Ha ! Hello, Adam, I'm the Doctor. Well, Other Doctor.

Ganger Jimmy stands slowly.

DOCTOR 1 : Or Smith. It's complicated and boring. Anyway, who cares, it's your birthday !

ADAM : Yay !

DOCTOR 1 : Yay ! Now, have you been getting up very early and jumping on the bed ?

ADAM : Yes, really high.

DOCTOR 1 : I expect chocolate for breakfast. If you don't feel sick by mid-morning, you're not doing it right. Now, I think you want to speak to Dad.

Turns to look at Ganger Jimmy.

ADAM : Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes ! Daddy ?

DOCTOR 1 (walks to Jimmy) : You'll do, Jimmy. What does the other Jimmy matter now ? You're both the same dad, aren't you ? Come on, Adam's waiting.

ADAM : Daddy ? (another quake). Daddy, what's that rumbly noise ? What's going on, Daddy ? Daddy ?

Ganger Jimmy runs from the room.

GANGER JENNIFER : You've tricked him into an act of weakness, Doctor.

DOCTOR 1 : No, I've helped him into an act of humanity. Anyone else like the sound of that ? Act of humanity.

GANGER CLEAVES : Dicken, drain the acid well in crypt one.

Ganger Dicken leaves to follow orders.

GANGER JENNIFER : Don't you dare !

GANGER CLEAVES : I've had it with this ! What's the point in this ridiculous war ? Look at you, Jen. You were a sweet kid. Look at you now. Stuff of nightmares. I don't want my world populated by monsters.

GANGER JENNIFER : You can't stop the factory from melting down, "boss". I'll take revenge on humanity with or without you.

DOCTOR 1 : It doesn't have to be about revenge. It can be so much better than that.

Ganger Jennifer storms from the room.


Jimmy is struggling to keep the lid on the vat.


Gangers Jimmy and Dicken are running through the halls to the acid room. Ganger Jimmy types in the code and opens the door.


Acid splashes on Jimmy's chest. He falls back to the floor. Ganger Jimmy runs in.

GANGER JIMMY : Let me through !

Makes his way to Jimmy lying on the ground.

DOCTOR 1 : There's nothing we can do. The acid's reached his heart.

GANGER JIMMY : Hang in there, mate.

JIMMY : I'm quite handsome from this angle.

GANGER JIMMY : I'm... sorry. I'm the fake. Adam deserves his real dad.

JIMMY : Shut up.

GANGER JIMMY : What do you want me to do ? Anything, just say.

JIMMY : The way things are, mate... it's up to you now. (pulls on the cord around his neck and presses it into Ganger Jimmy's hand). Be a dad. You remember how.

Dies. Ganger Jimmy holds up Jimmy's wedding band.

DOCTOR 1 : Jimmy Wicks... you're a dad.


Rory, Doctor 2 and Ganger Cleaves are the only ones in the room. Adam's hologram is still connected.

ADAM : Daddy ? Where's my daddy ?

Ganger Jimmy enters followed by the others. Rory goes right to Amy and they hug and kiss. Cleaves goes to her ganger and Ganger Jimmy approaches the hologram of “his” son.

ADAM : Daddy, it's me !

GANGER JIMMY (laughs nervously) : Hey, sunshine ! What are you up to ?

ADAM : Opening all my presents.

GANGER JIMMY : Haha, good lad. You have fun today. And remember, your dad... he loves you very, very much.

ADAM : When are you coming home ?

DOCTOR 1 : Daddy's coming home today, Adam.

ADAM : Yay !

Adam does his excited dance and Ganger Jimmy smiles.

DOCTOR 1 : Now we need to move.


Ganger Jimmy is sitting down, panting hard. She is in her half-form and hears a door in the distance.


One of the Doctors is leading the way as they run. They stop when they come across a misshapen, elongated Ganger Jennifer.

DOCTOR 1 : Run. Run. Run !

They turn back the way they came as Ganger Jennifer now moves on all-fours. They run through a narrow hallway and into another room.


The roof groans.

DOCTOR 1 : Ooh, roof's going to give.

Both Dicken and his Ganger close the metal door.

GANGER DICKEN : We have to stop her. This door doesn't lock.

DICKEN : No, but the far one does.


Dicken runs down the hall to the far door. He pulls on it, but it’s jammed. Ganger Jennifer gets closer. Dicken pulls part of the handle off. He finally closes the door but stays on the other side. His scream carries down the hall.



Ganger Dicken slams the door shut. Ganger Cleaves and Doctor 1 help him.

DOCTOR 1 (looks up at roof) : Here she comes.

At that moment, the TARDIS falls through the roof.

DOCTOR 1 : Oh, she does like to make an entrance !

DOCTOR 2 (opens the TARDIS) : Move !

DOCTOR 1 (holds the door) : Go, go, go, go !

Ganger Dicken runs to the TARDIS.

GANGER CLEAVES : Get on board ! Go !

CLEAVES : I'm not leaving.


Ganger Jennifer bangs against the door.



Cleaves runs to the TARDIS.

AMY : Now's our chance.

DOCTOR 1 : I have to stay. Hold this door closed. Give you time to dematerialize.

AMY : Oh, don't be crazy. OK, what happens to you ?

DOCTOR 1 : Well, this place is just about to explode. But I can stop her.

AMY : Both of you can survive this, OK ?

DOCTOR 1 : Or perhaps you think I should stay instead... Mr Smith ?

AMY : No, of course not. But look, this man, I've flown with him, you know ? And you are amazing and yeah, I misjudged you, but you're not him. I'm sorry.

DOCTOR 1 : Amy, we swapped shoes. I'm the Doctor.

DOCTOR 2 : And I'm the Flesh.

AMY : You can't be. (turns to Ganger Doctor). You're the real him.

GANGER DOCTOR : No, I'm not, and I haven't been all along.

AMY : What ?

DOCTOR : I'm the original Doctor, Amy. We had to know if we were truly the same. It was important, vital, we learn about The Flesh. And we could only do that through your eyes.

Amy looks at Ganger Doctor and then runs to hug him tightly.

AMY : I never thought it possible.


AMY : You're twice the man I thought you were.

GANGER DOCTOR (whispers) : Push, Amy. But only when she tells you to.

Ganger Jennifer bangs at the door again.

RORY : Amy, come on !

Amy rushes past the Doctor.

GANGER DOCTOR : Well, my death arrives, I suppose.

DOCTOR : But this one, we're not invited to.


DOCTOR : Nothing. Your molecular memory can survive this, you know. It may not be the end.

Tosses him the sonic screwdriver.

GANGER DOCTOR : If I turn up to nick all your biscuits, you'll know you were right.

The Doctor chuckles. He sobers and exchanges a nod with his ganger.

AMY : Doctor ! No, please...

Rory guides her back to the TARDIS.

GANGER DOCTOR : You too, Cleaves, off you pop.

GANGER CLEAVES : I'm staying.

GANGER DOCTOR : This is not the time for grand gestures.

GANGER CLEAVES : Says the king of grand gestures ! This is my factory ! I'm not going anywhere.

GANGER DOCTOR : Foreman Miranda Cleaves, marvelous ! (kisses her head). Beware of imitations.

GANGER CLEAVES : Clear off out of here, the lot of you !

The Doctor, Amy and Rory run to the TARDIS. The Ganger Doctor holds up the sonic.

GANGER DOCTOR : This will dissolve her.

GANGER CLEAVES : And us too.

The TARDIS dematerializes.

GANGER DOCTOR : There may be a way back from this.

Tosses the sonic hand-to-hand.

GANGER CLEAVES : From being vaporized ? How ?

GANGER DOCTOR : Don't know. Let's find out, eh ?

They open the door.

GANGER DOCTOR : Don't know. Let's find out, eh ?

They each hold the sonic.

GANGER DOCTOR : Geronimo !

They activate the sonic. Ganger Jennifer bursts and Ganger Doctor and Ganger Cleaves “melt”.


The Doctor is leaning against the console. Amy comes over and wraps her hands around his arm.

DOCTOR : The energy from the TARDIS will stabilize the gangers for good. They're people now.

CLEAVES : And what happens to me ? I still have this.

DOCTOR : Ah, that's not a problem. (snaps fingers). I have something for that. It's small and red and tastes like burnt onions, ha ! (pulls a vial from under the console). But it'll get rid of your blood clot. (tosses the vial to Cleaves, grabs a red balloon). Happy endings.


Adam is standing on the shore bundled in a winter coat. A red balloon drifts by.

GANGER JIMMY : Hey ! Hello, bud.

Adam runs to his father.

ADAM : Daddy, you're back !

Ganger Jimmy lifts Adam and twirls around.

GANGER JIMMY : Hello, my boy ! How are you doing ?

The Doctor watches from a distance.


The TARDIS is in the lobby. The Doctor, Cleaves and Ganger Dicken walk slowly towards the main door followed by Amy and Rory.

CLEAVES : You really want us to do this ?

DOCTOR : Your company's telling the world that the situation is over. You need to get in there and tell them that the situation's only just begun. Make them understand what they're doing to the Flesh. Make them stop. Dicken, remember, people are good. In their bones, truly good. Don't hate them, will you ?

GANGER DICKEN : How can I hate them ? I'm one of them now.

DOCTOR : Yeah, and just remember, people died. Don't let that be in vain. Make what you say in that room count.

CLEAVES : Ready ? (walks to the door). Side by side.

GANGER DICKEN : You got it, boss.

Cleaves opens the door and we hear a press conference happening inside.

REPORTER : Have the army dealt with the imposters ?

The door closes behind them.

AMY (nudges Doctor) : You OK ?

DOCTOR : I said breathe, Pond, remember ? Well, breathe.

AMY : Why ?

DOCTOR : Breathe.

AMY (doubles over and gasps) : Ohh ! Whoa. Oh !

RORY : What's wrong with her ?

DOCTOR 1 : Get her into the TARDIS.

The Doctor strides back to the TARDIS and Rory follows, helping Amy.


The Doctor walks up to the console platform as Rory and Amy enter.

RORY : Doctor ! What is happening to her ?

DOCTOR : Contractions.

RORY : Contractions ?

DOCTOR : She's going into labour.

AMY : Did he say... ? No, of course he didn't. Rory, I don't like this. Ow !

Grips her stomach and bends over.

RORY : You'll have to start explaining this to me, Doctor.

DOCTOR : What, the birds and the bees ? She's having a baby. I needed to see the Flesh in its early days. That’s why I scanned it. That's why we were there in the first place. I was going to drop you off for fish and chips first, but things happened and there was stuff and shenanigans. Beautiful word, shenanigans.

AMY : It hurts !

RORY : But you're OK ?

DOCTOR : Breathe. I needed enough information to block the signal to the Flesh.

AMY : What signal ?

DOCTOR : The signal to you.

AMY : Doctor ?

DOCTOR : Stand away from her, Rory.

RORY : Why ? No ! And why ?

DOCTOR : Given what we've learned, I'll be as humane as I can, but I need to do this and you need to stand away !

Rory looks at Amy who shakes her head. Rory looks back at the Doctor and then slowly backs away from Amy.

AMY : No. No ! (turns her gaze from Rory to the Doctor). Doctor, I am frightened. I'm properly, properly scared.

DOCTOR : Don't be. Hold on. We're coming for you, I swear it. Whatever happens, however hard, however far, we will find you.

Puts his hand to Amy's cheek.

AMY : I'm right here !

Puts her hands on his arm.

DOCTOR : No, you're not. You haven't been here for a long, long time.

The Doctor pulls away from her and holds up the sonic screwdriver. Rory gasps.

AMY : Oh, no !

The Doctor activates the sonic and Amy melts into Flesh.

INT. ?

Amy wakes with a gasp. She is lying in a bed and dressed in a white hospital gown. Above her, a window slides open and she sees the Eye-Patch Lady.

EYE-PATCH LADY : Well, dear, you're ready to pop, aren't you ? Little one's on its way.

Amy looks down her body and sees she is in a position about to give birth and starts whimpering.

EYE-PATCH LADY : Here it comes. Pu-u-u-ush !

Amy scream.
