PART 2

PADLOCKED

 

 

QUEUE OPENING THEME AND TITLES.

 

HARPAL: Doctor do something!

 

RIVER: (from behind the Cyberman) No need.

 

River takes out her scanner and absorbs all the power from the Cyberman. It falls over the ledge into the fire, and the Doctor, Amy and Harpal are released. The pant and stagger back against the wall.

 

AMY: How’d you manage that?

 

HARPAL: So much for: (He pretends to be Amy) Melody!

 

AMY: Oi watch it Mr. alien infection.   

 

THE DOCTOR: Now play nice.

 

AMY: I’ve got heated like my hair raggedy man so button it!

 

RIVER: This was going to happen sooner or later, clash of the titans.

 

HARPAL: I thought you were in Stormcage.

 

RIVER: The old ones are the best.

 

AMY: I swear that’s from the 1980’s.

 

HARPAL: That is old.

 

RIVER: No I mean the 2010 one.

 

THE DOCTOR: All right! All right! Catch up time over! We need to find out what the Cybermen want.

 

HARPAL: Erm, to kill us! (To Amy) God you’d think he’d know that.

 

THE DOCTOR: Oi!

 

RIVER: Shush!

 

Everyone opens up their mouth to speak, but stop.

 

RIVER: You’re not the only one who knows that trick. And I used my vortex Manipulator.

 

HARPAL: That thing must be slow.

 

RIVER: It’s not, I just hoped one of you may die first.

 

HARPAL: No prizes for guessing who.

 

THE DOCTOR: Back to the Cybermen!

 

The Doctor begins pacing.

 

THE DOCTOR: Ok, give me facts, throw them at me!

 

A Cyberman head handle clangs on the Doctor’s head.

 

THE DOCTOR: Ow!

 

HARPAL: Sorry, found it on the floor.

 

THE DOCTOR: Ok, facts!

 

HARPAL: They want us for some reason.

 

RIVER: This is a Cyberman factory-

 

AMY: On board a spaceship.

 

RIVER: The metal on the pole was made of hoibfoadroidic gravels.

 

HARPAL: And, that’s about it.

 

THE DOCTOR: Right, lets go get answers.

 

The Doctor sonics the door and goes back into the room they were in before.

 

The Doctor walks through the door. The Cyberman they destroyed earlier is sparking back to life.

 

AMY: Come on, I don’t particularly want to have another encounter with that.

 

They keep walking and the Doctor see’s a screen.

 

THE DOCTOR: Let’s see what we can find out.

 

The Doctor Sonics the screen and a picture of the vessel shows. The Doctor points.

 

THE DOCTOR: That’s the engine room, that’s the control room. And there are three Cybermen base their. There are other factories all over the ship, they must be recruiting. That’s it! There are only a small number left, and their building more.

 

HARPAL: What for?

 

THE DOCTOR: An invasion? Could be. I don’t know what else it could be. But look at this place, it’s a wreck, they don’t have enough power to attack earth.

 

AMY: Is that why they wanted the TARDIS? There is enough power in there to last a while. Maybe their draining the power.

 

RIVER: That’s interesting as well. We should try to make our way to the command unit. Then we can get some answers.

 

THE DOCTOR: Yes, true, we need to make our way there.

 

River presses a few buttons on her vortex manipulator. She grabs Amy and The Doctor’s hand and teleports to the main command unit.

 

HARPAL: River! Argh!

 

CUT TO THE MAIN COMMAND UNIT. THERE ARE COMPUTERS MONITORING THE QUADRANT AND TARDIS. THE CYBERMEN TURN ROUND AND SEE THE DOCTOR.

 

CYBERLEADER: Delete! It is the Doctor! Delete!

 

River takes out her gun. The Doctor takes out his sonic and Amy backs behind.

 

THE DOCTOR: Wait!

 

The Doctor Sonics River’s gun and she shoots the Cyberman and the bullet electrocutes him. The Cyberman screams and dies.

 

RIVER: Stay back or I’ll destroy every one of you.

 

The Cybermen lower their guns.

 

THE DOCTOR: I want answers.

 

CUT BACK TO HARPAL HE IS PACING.

 

HARPAL: They’ve gone to the main command unit. So, how can I get there?

 

He walks over to the schematics.

 

HARPAL: The command unit is… is… a long way away. I could just wait here. Suppose I haven’t got any choice, I don’t have anything to open the doors. Let alone workable houses.

 

He looks back at the skewered Cyberman and its fist begins to flex.

 

HARPAL: Oh! Hurry up Doctor!

 

CUT BACK TO THE COMMAND UNIT THE DOCTOR IS SITTING AT THE CONTROL DESK PRESSING BUTTONS AND LEVERS. RIVER HOLDS THE CYBERMEN AT GUN POINT.

 

RIVER: Doctor, what are you doing?

 

THE DOCTOR: You have major defense systems. Why?

 

CYBERLEADER: We received distress calls from a Cyber ship buried under the crust of the Earth. The remaining Cyberman from the Alliance and the battle of Canary Wharf failed the mission to assimilate and upgrade the planet.

 

AMY: Doctor, do you know about this?

 

THE DOCTOR: The ship was under the shop Sanderson and Grainger, Craig and me dealt with it.

 

AMY: Oh, your lodger friend.

 

RIVER: Why do I let you out? I hope he hasn’t drawn pictures and made action figures of you.

 

AMY: Oi! Respect, your elders!

 

RIVER: Argh, I hate you.

 

AMY: You are grounded!

 

THE DOCTOR: Hey! So your going to blow Earth to bits? There isn’t enough power on this ship; you’ll be ripped apart. You send any missiles; they’ll be destroyed when they hit the atmosphere. You’re putting all your last power into your weapon systems. We couldn’t feel it before, but we’re slowly falling through space.

 

CYBERLEADER: The human children must pay for the destruction of Cyber kind.

 

THE DOCTOR: If you divert all the power to your engines you could make a getaway. Look, don’t bother the human race anymore.

 

CYBERLEADER: The humans must pay! We have you TARDIS, our power levels increase. Soon we will have enough power to launch our missiles and take away the sky.

 

THE DOCTOR: You wont destroy them. I will protect them until my very last breathe.

 

CYBERMAN: Then you’re air will be shortened.

 

THE DOCTOR TELEPORTS WITH RIVER AND AMY BACK TO HARPAL IN THE PADLOCKED ROOM. ONCE THEY HAVE GONE, THE CYBERMEN BEGIN PLOTTING.

 

CYBERMAN: Evacuate air and power from station KSDGB398/S94N.

 

CUT TO THE DOCTOR AMY AND RIVER LANDING BACK IN THE PADLOCKED ROOM.

 

HARPAL: Where the hell have you been?

 

THE DOCTOR: Just some unfinished business with some Cybermen.

 

HARPAL: Finished?

 

RIVER: Yes.

 

AMY: Doctor, they’re planning an invasion, what do we do?

 

HARPAL: An invasion?

 

THE DOCTOR: Well, they want to blow the Earth to pieces, but apart from that we are … ok.

 

HARPAL: Oh well that’s great isn’t it?

 

RIVER: Oh shush.

 

HARPAL: Don’t shush me.

 

AMY: Hey! That’s my daughter!

 

HARPAL: That’s, hard to believe.

 

THE DOCTOR: Oi! This gang isn’t working!

 

HARPAL: So the Cybermen want to blow the Earth to bits, but you said this ship doesn’t have enough power.

 

RIVER: No he didn’t.

 

HARPAL: Well, it’s, easy to tell.

 

THE DOCTOR: It’s the TARDIS, they’re using the TARDIS, for power, they’re draining it.

 

Amy begins coughing.

 

AMY: Doctor…

 

THE DOCTOR: Hush Pond-

 

She continues coughing.

 

AMY: Doctor…

 

THE DOCTOR: Pond!

 

AMY: Doctor, shut up!

 

River and Harpal start coughing.

 

AMY: What, what was that you said to the Cyber, Cybermen?

 

THE DOCTOR That there’s not enough power-

 

AMY: Now, about breathe.

 

The Doctor starts coughing.

 

THE DOCTOR: I will protect them until my last, last breathe…

 

RIVER: It’s, it’s come early!

 

They all start coughing and spluttering as the air is being taken from the room.

 

HARPAL: Doctor!

 

THE DOCTOR: We, we have to get out of here!

 

Amy limps over and tries the door.

 

AMY: It’s locked!

 

She goes back to the Doctor  and looks into his eyes. Her vision begins to slowly fade as does everyone else’s.

 

THE DOCTOR: Pond! Pond! Harpal! River!

 

RIVER: Doctor, my, my eyes…

 

AMY: You look, fuzzy…

 

HARPAL: What’s that light?

 

Suddenly, a massive light erupts around the room, blinding everyone.

 

THE DOCTOR: The Cybermen are trying to take out all our senses! Starting with sight!

 

RIVER: They’re trying to blind us!

 

River looks at the Doctor and Amy and all she can see is this:

 

After a while, Harpal black’s out. River swoons and see’s the Doctor and Amy.

 

RIVER: Sweetie…

 

River passes out, and so does Amy.

 

THE DOCTOR: Harpal! River! Amy! No!

 

He cough’s and splutter’s more and more…
