PART 3

DEATH OF THE SKY

 

 

QUEUE OPENING THEME AND TITLES.

 

OPEN IN THE PADLOCKED ROOM. SMOKE IS FILLING THE AIR AND A BRIGHT LIGHTS ARE SHINING. HARPAL, RIVER AND AMY LAY ON THE FLOOR AS THE DOCTORS STAGGARS ALONG THE WALL TO SEE IF THERE ARE ANY SWITCHES OR LEVERS.

 

THE DOCTOR: Oh! Argh! Help!

 

The Doctor stops and hears the sound of a Cyberman. Stomp stomp stomp! It is the skewered Cyberman.

 

THE DOCTOR: Hello?

 

CYBERMAN: Del del del del del del.

 

THE DOCTOR: Oh no.

 

CYBERMAN: Ete! Ete! Ete! Ete! Ete! Ete!

 

THE DOCTOR: Argh!

 

The Doctor keeps fumbling along until he comes across a hot square panel. He touches it and quickly takes his hand away because of the heat.

 

THE DOCTOR: Ow! Yowser! That’s, hot. That’s a light…

 

He stops for a second and realises his plan.

 

THE DOCTOR: Hey! Hey! Cyber metal thingy! Over here!

 

CYBERMAN: Del! Ete! Del! Ete!

 

THE DOCTOR: I hope this works…

 

The Cyberman raises a fist. As it is about to punch, the Doctor ducks. The Cyberman shoots it’s fist into the light. Lightning rivets through the Cyberman, it screams and explodes as does the light. Now there is only smoke in the room.

 

THE DOCTOR: Few.

 

The Doctor opens his eyes and wafts away the smoke and makes his way to Amy.

 

THE DOCTOR: Pond? Come along Pond! Oh, lazy Pond.

He walks over to River.

 

THE DOCTOR: River! River!

 

He puts his hand on River’s hips and begins to shake them.

 

THE DOCTOR: Hips? Hips River? Oh I’m not good at this am I? You’ve got sexy hips River!

 

River suddenly wakes up.

 

RIVER: Sexy hips? Me? Thank you sweetie. Can’t say the same for you though.

 

THE DOCTOR: Argh! Thanks Rivvy. Were you awake all that time?

 

RIVER: Most of it, heard the Cyberman explode but I wanted to see how you’d cope with waking your wife up.

 

The Doctor sonics Amy and looks at the sonic.

 

THE DOCTOR: It’s fine. They’re fine, the brain couldn’t cope with the light and smoke, so the brain sort of, shut down.

 

RIVER: Really?

 

THE DOCTOR: No, I just can’t be bothered to explain it. You’re a bit slow today.

 

RIVER: I’m never slow when it comes to some matters…

 

THE DOCTOR: Don’t be so naughty!

 

Harpal begins to wake up.

 

HARPAL: Doctor! My head!

 

He reaches up to rub his head, but as he touches it he winces as the pain of his burns spark.

 

RIVER: Forgot, hands.

 

AMY: Raggedy man! I remember you…

 

THE DOCTOR: Who couldn’t!

 

The Doctor sits beside her, pulls her up and looks into her eyes.

 

AMY: Doctor?

 

Then he shakes her head around, pats her on the head and pushes her back onto the floor.

 

AMY: Doctor, oi!

 

THE DOCTOR: Well I don’t know what to do with your head! I’m just worried about mine!

 

Harpal shakily stands up.

 

HARPAL: Oh I feel sick!

 

Harpal runs over to a small, rectangular shaped, grotty window to lean on, but then he catches a sight of what’s outside…

 

HARPAL: Oh great. I don’t see us getting to the TARDIS, let alone home.

 

The Doctor walks over as Amy talks to River.

 

THE DOCTOR: Don’t you think it’s pretty? Beautiful? Amazing?

 

HARPAL: Course, all of that too. But there are more important things to think about.

 

RIVER: Doctor, even though I don’t trust him he is right.

 

HARPAL: I knew you’d warm up to me.

 

RIVER: Don’t push your luck.

 

AMY: Stop the cat fight you two!

 

THE DOCTOR: We need to hurry up before the Cybermen launch the missiles. They must be nearly ready by now.

 

CUT TO THE CONTROL UNIT.

 

CYBERMAN: The Doctor is plotting to corrupt our plans. We must extend our plans to stage 2 before he strikes. We must extract the atmosphere so our missiles can strike. Then we descend on the humans to take them from their emotional weakness. Extract the atmosphere!

 

CUT TO THE BRITISH COUNTRYSIDE. A FARMER IS WALKING AROUND IN THE FIELDS. HE LOOKS UP AT THE SKY.

 

FARMER: What the hell?

 

CUT TO THE DOCTOR.

 

HARPAL: Doctor! The Sky!

 

The clouds begin to fluctuate, and pixelate. The sky flashes blue and paper, and begins to flicker. Finally, the sky retreats backward, shrinks and scatters over the universe, retreating into space.

 

CUT BACK TO THE CYBER CONTROL UNIT.

 

CYBERMAN: The death of the sky will make way for our weak missiles.

 

CUT BACK TO THE DOCTOR. EVERYONE RUNS TO THE WINDOW AND SEE’S THE FLICKERING BLUE AND PURPLE RAY OF LIGHT SHINING TOWARD THE SHIP.

 

RIVER: Doctor, what the hell is that?

 

THE DOCTOR: I think it’s the sky.

 

AMY: How can it be? Rory!

 

The light shoots toward them.

 

THE DOCTOR: Get down!

 

They all swivel on their feet and jump on the floor, as the sky hits the shape, a bright light emits through the room, then after a few seconds it dies down as the sky has been absorbed by the Cyber ship.

 

Behind them, a hooded figure stands. It’s eyes crackle red lightning, and after a while, with a red-lighted flash it departs…

 

CUT TO THE FARMER IN THE BRITISH FIELDS. AS THERE IS NO SKY, HE STARES IN DISBELIEF AT THE SOLAR SYSTEM…

 

FARMER: Bless my soul!

 

CUT BACK TO THE DOCTOR. HARPAL GETS UP BEFORE EVERYONE ELSE AND RUNS BACK TO THE WINDOW.

 

HARPAL: Where’s the sky? Doctor! What about everyone on Earth! What about my family!

 

Harpal runs over and begins to shake the Doctor as Amy runs over to the window.

 

HARPAL: Doctor!

 

AMY: What about Rory?

 

HARPAL: And my family too!

 

RIVER: Oh don’t start.

 

HARPAL: What?

 

RIVER: You don’t have a family! You only have a sister but even she doesn’t stay with you! She’s away somewhere else, working-

 

HARPAL: Why don’t you be quiet and focus on making sure your mother is ok!

 

Amy turns around from the window and she has tears streaming down her face.

 

RIVER: Mother?

 

AMY: Rory. Rory!

 

River and Amy run to each other and hug each other tightly.

 

RIVER: Mother, father will be fine, he always has been.

 

AMY: I have to tell you. I left him behind. On purpose. I closed the TARDIS doors on him. I’ve pushed him away!

 

Amy buries her head into River’s shoulder (slash hair) and sobs loudly.

 

THE DOCTOR: Amy we can fix this. We just need to think.

 

The ground suddenly rumbles and shakes.

 

RIVER: They must be ready getting ready to fire the missiles.

 

HARPAL: What about the TARDIS?

 

There is a long pause.

 

THE DOCTOR: Drained.

 

CUT TO THE CYBER CONTROL UNIT.

 

CYBERLEADER: The last of our kind to commandeer this ship left were abducted and the codes for the missiles were changed into an encrypted code to unlock the missiles in numbers and Earth mathematics. We need a human.

 

AMY: The Earth has no sky the missiles are being prepared and the TARDIS has no power. What do we do?

 

The metal door slides open and a group of three Cybermen including the Cyberleader storm in.

 

CYBERLEADER: You Harpal Khambay will help the Cybermen.

 

A Cyberman walks forward and grabs Harpal’s arm.

 

CYBERMAN: Resistance is irrelevant.

 

HARPAL: I’m not going anywhere with you.

 

The Cyberman grabs Harpal’s throat.

 

HARPAL: You’ve already infected me with your metals; you want my help you have to ask nicely. And anyway, why me?

 

CYBERLEADER: You are a child. You are involved in school work. Human mathematics.

 

HARPAL: Not my strongest subject…

 

CYBERLEADER: You will help us to guarantee you and your friend’s survival.

 

HARPAL: Done.

 

The Cyberman begins to lead Harpal away.

 

THE DOCTOR: Harpal no! We can do something else we can figure something out!

 

Harpal stops walking. After a second or two he turns around. The Doctor thinks he will come back. But he doesn’t.

 

HARPAL: See you later.

 

The Cyberman takes Harpal away.

 

THE DOCTOR: Harpal no! Don’t do this!

 

The metal door shuts behind Harpal, as he turns his head with a worried look.

 

RIVER: Good riddance.

 

THE DOCTOR: River! Be quiet! He is just 13! Stop saying horrible things!

 

RIVER: Do you remember what happened last time when you didn’t believe me?

 

THE DOCTOR: No because it hasn’t happened yet! Leave him alone! Argh!

 

The Doctor turns around.

 

THE DOCTOR: (Mutters) I want a divorce.

 

CUT TO THE CYBER CONTROL UNIT. THE CYBERMEN AND HARPAL WALK IN, AND THEY LEAD HARPAL TO THE SCREEN WITH THE ENCRYPTED CODE ON IT.

 

CYBERLEADER: Unlock the missiles.

 

HARPAL: Ok, so, I need to find the code for letters and numbers, and when I decode it, I have to follow the mathematical equations to equal an answer.

 

CYBERLEADER: Will it be done?

 

HARPAL: No. I can’t do it. This advanced Math’s, is like, over GSCE level, and the only time I had an encounter with that was with a hefty book and Rory’s head. Look at it!

 

THE SCREEN SHOWS  A SERIES OF NUMBERS AND SHAPES:

 

CYBERLEADER: Come here human.

 

Harpal turns around and sees a Cyberman holding an info stamp.

 

CYBERLEADER: This info stamp is full of human numbers.

 

HARPAL: Why don’t you use it?

 

CYBERLEADER: I am the Cyberleader you will do as I say.

 

HARPAL: Oh great, I’m the guinea pig.

 

The Cyberman shines the stamp at Harpal’s head. His head shakes and his eyes widen as the blue light floods into his brain.

 

CUT TO THE DOCTOR.

 

THE DOCTOR: River, charge up your manipulator. We have to put this into silence mode.

 

CUT BACK TO THE CYBER CONTROL UNIT.

 

Harpal falls and passes out.

 

CYBERLEADER: His brain is stable. When he awakes the missiles will be released.

 

CUT TO THE DOCTOR:

 

THE DOCTOR: River hurry!

 

RIVER: Doctor wait it’s charging!

 

CUT BACK TO THE CYBER UNIT. HARPAL JUMPS UP AND BEGINS TAPPING AWAY AT THE SCREEN.

 

HARPAL: I can do it!

 

He keeps tapping on the screen.

 

HARPAL: Code encrypted, solving equations.

 

CUT BACK TO THE DOCTOR.

 

THE DOCTOR: Not enough time!

 

CUT BACK TO THE CONTROL UNIT.

 

CYBERLEADER: Do you feel fear?

 

HARPAL: Never!

 

With a final tap, Harpal solves the equations and figures out the code to unlock the missiles.

 

HARPAL: It’s 48.895689565489!

 

CYBERLEADER: You are intelligent.

 

HARPAL: I know. What have I done? The missiles!

 

Harpal takes the info stamp in secret and places it on a charging ramp.

 

CYBERLEADER: Missile’s will unlock in 300 seconds. Earth numbers.

 

Harpal takes the info stamp and stabs the Cyberleader with it. He screams, as he is electrocuted, then he explodes.

 

CYBERMAN: You are a noble human you do not feel emotion.

 

HARPAL: Yes I do!

 

CYBERMAN: You do not fear us and you do not feel remorse for what is to come.

 

HARPAL: How do you know about that?

 

CYBERMAN: That is irrelevant you will take place as our Cyberleader.

 

HARPAL: What?

 

Two Cybermen from behind grab Harpal’s arms in a ‘link’ position and drag him forward.

 

HARPAL: No! You can’t!

 

Harpal struggles but it is no use.

 

HARPAL: I will never work for you!

 

CYBERMAN: Do not pretend to fear the Cybermen.

 

HARPAL: Oh, I was just cocky that I could do Math’s beyond my level!

 

CYBERMAN: You will be reborn in glory as our Cyberleader!

 

Harpal looks up as machinery shines and glints in the dim light.

 

HARPAL: Oh god.

 

Then, an empty, hollow Cyber head comes down ready to take Harpal’s mind…
