4. The Water of Death

 

PART 4

THE WATER OF DEATH

 

 

QUEUE OPENING TITLES.

 

HARPAL: We need to think, what river would they got to?

 

THE DOCTOR: Probably the Thames makes sense.

 

AMY: Would they find their way under the Thames, or could they just go to the Thames and stand in there themselves?

 

RORY: Wouldn’t they have to walk through London? It will cause havoc.

 

THE DOCTOR: The flood are clever, they will find a way through underground.

 

HARPAL: Or they could find their way through the water pumps of the Thames, then they could fill their water in the barrels of the Thames water.

 

AMY: There is no way whatsoever of knowing for definite. Is there?

 

THE DOCTOR: If we had a sample of the infectious water then we could trace the source.

 

RORY: You mean the creature it came from?

 

THE DOCTOR: Exactly.

 

HARPAL: The only place we will find that is back at mine. Come on!

 

Everyone runs to the console and the Doctor starts flicking buttons and levers.

 

FLASH TO THE FLOOD UNDEGROUND, SURROUNDED BY 3 POLICE MEN. THE FLOOD SHOOT WATER AT ALL OF THEM. THEY FALL ONTO THE GROUND.

 

FLASH TO A DALEK SAUCER LINGERING NEAR THE TARDIS, IT SHOOTS OUT A THIN BLUE RAY OVER THE TARDIS.

 

There is a loud bump from inside the TARDIS and the whole thing shakes.

 

HARPAL: That sounded like something getting in the way of our plan to save humanity from a lifetime of dribbling.

 

THE DOCTOR: It was, it looks like someone has put a beam around us, like, like a force field.

 

AMY: That means we won’t be able to get out and save everybody. Right?

 

THE DOCTOR: Right. No! Someone is out there, someone is sitting in the sky and they are always one step ahead!

RORY: It could just be a coincidence?

 

THE DOCTOR: Oh, no, no Rory! Who released that fire substance on that planet, who put humans on Mars, who drained the power, who poured water all over the TARDIS, who is trying to bring me down!

 

AMY: Doctor, we don’t know that, but with you, problems have a habit of unraveling after a while.

 

THE DOCTOR: This person or thing could have destroyed civilizations, and people, and he just sits there, because he knows we are trapped.

 

HARPAL: Hey. Pull yourself together! Think how we can get out of this!

 

AMY: It’s no good taking that approach!

 

HARPAL: Well sometimes you need to make people help you.

 

AMY: That’s forcing!

 

HARPAL: Well we can’t just leave it!

 

THE DOCTOR: Stop it! I will find a way out of this. I promise.

 

FLASH TO THE FLOOD.

 

The flood are walking through a train track under the riverbed of the Thames, a train is coming in the distance. Zoom up to Kate’s face as she slowly turns to see a ladder and a hatch.

 

FLASH BACK TO THE TARDIS. EVERYONE IS SITTING ON THE GLASS FLOOR.

 

AMY: Would the flood be at the Thames by now?

 

THE DOCTOR: I don’t know, I don’t know. If they get in there, if someone passes on a speedboat, and they get a drop of water on them, they will change in front of everyone. Imagine the panic. It would be global. The Olympics would be postponed, the country in lockdown. The infected behind bars. Imprisoned.

 

RORY: What about medicine?

 

HARPAL: I don’t think any type of medicine will be able to cure that.

 

FLASH TO THE RIVER BED OF THE THAMES.

 

A hatch opens and there is movement below the sand. Kate sticks her hand out.

 

FLASH BACK TO THE TARDIS.

 

THE DOCTOR: I am so, so, so sorry everyone.

 

AMY: We know.

 

FLASH BACK TO THE HATCH.

 

Kate climbs out followed by Brian, Joe, the miners and policemen. Below there is water and sand pouring through the hatch smothering the train. Show the Thames barrier, the water level decreases by 3 cm. Maddie is below, she raises her hands and controls the water, it smashes the train to bits.

 

Show Maddie climbing up the ladder, then closing the hatch. Standing in line with the other creatures, they stand with their legs apart. They raise their hands, and water shoots out from their arms and mouth. Show the Thames barrier, and the water rising by 8 cm. Zoom up to Kate then black out.

 

QUEUE ENDING TITLES.

 

 

 

 

 

 

NEXT TIME...

 

HARPAL: They have put the water into the Thames.

 

AMY: And destroyed that train.

 

THE DOCTOR: We need to distract them so I can get a sample of the water. I need to break this force field.

 

RORY: Play dead!

 

AMY: Who will distract the flood then?

 

They all look at Harpal.

 

KATE: We shall travel underwater to Europe!

 

Show Brian kicking Harpal’s door down.

 

HARPAL: Hello again!

 

RORY: Will he be ok?

 

AMY: Rory! Rory! Help me! Argh!

 

Amy holds the scream.

 

THE DOCTOR: Amy!

 

Show Harpal’s hand, it is flowing with water pouring out. As this is shows:

 

HARPAL: Doctor! Help! Someone! Please!

 

Brian walks in then show Harpal’s face up close in the form of the flood creatures, water

dribbling from his mouth…

 

 

 

 

 

WRITER TAKE:

   I love this one. I love the flood monsters, they totally terrify me to bits. Literally. This one has a lot of action in it, and theory too. The bit with my character and the house I love. I wanted him to prove himself in a way.

   And the bit when the flood emerges into the Thames is great too. I love the shot when the flood monster sticks his hand out of the sand. It’s totally terrifying. The reason the story is so terrifying is because of the point my character made. The hydrological cycle. The flood are using nature to spread the disease. But will the Doctor stop them?
