4. The Cyber Boy

 

PART 4

THE CYBER BOY

 

 

QUEUE OPENING THEME AND TITLES.

 

OPEN WITH HARPAL SITTING IN A RUSTY METAL CHAIR. HE IS PINNED DOWN WITH STRAPS AND BUCKLES.

 

HARPAL: You can’t do this! You’re insane!

 

CYBERMAN: Cybermen do not feel emotions like insanity.

 

HARPAL: Well you should try it! You’ll go insane yourself if you saw… you.

 

Harpal glances up as the hollow Cyber head descends…

 

HARPAL: I warn you, you’re gonna get it!

 

The Cyberhead comes down on Harpal’s head. His eyes droop as electrical shots go through his head.

 

CYBERMAN: The new Cyberleader takes shape!

 

CUT TO THE DOCTOR.

 

RIVER: It’s working.

 

THE DOCTOR: Really?

 

RIVER: Do you think I’d lie?

 

THE DOCTOR: Right. Come on.

 

The Doctor and Amy hold onto River’s Vortex Manipulator. She presses the button and the three of them fade out.

 

CUT TO THE CYBER CONTROL UNIT. THE DOCTOR, RIVER AND AMY FADE INTO THE ROOM.

 

THE DOCTOR: Harpal!

 

Harpal opens his eyes and speaks in a faint Cyberman voice.

 

HARPAL: Doc-tor?

 

RIVER: Extra power!

 

River presses a button on her manipulator and a massive electrical shockwave shoots out of the manipulator destroying all the Cybermen and the Cyberhead on Harpal.

 

HARPAL: Argh!

 

THE DOCTOR: Harpal!

 

The Doctor runs to Harpal and helps him up.

 

THE DOCTOR: Are you alright?

 

HARPAL: I think so the code! The password it was 48.895689565489! The missiles!

 

THE DOCTOR: When are they being released?

 

HARPAL: The ex Cyberleader said that they would be released in 5 minutes.

 

RIVER: About 3 minutes ago!

 

They all run to the screen. The Doctor in front.

 

THE DOCTOR: Argh! Help!

 

RIVER: What’s the password?

 

HARPAL: 48.895689565489.

 

AMY: How did you remember all that?

 

HARPAL: No idea.

 

The Doctor takes out his sonic screwdriver and Sonics the screen.

 

THE DOCTOR: We have one minute and thirty seconds.

 

AMY: Can you disable it?

 

THE DOCTOR: Watch me.

 

The Doctor taps on the screen and presses lots of buttons. The screen freezes the countdown at one minute and 21 seconds. Everyone sighs in relief.

 

HARPAL: What about the Sky?

 

THE DOCTOR: I’ll put that back.

 

The Doctor presses more buttons and the pixelated sky is released from the belly of the ship. With a rumble it flies back to Earth and settles.

 

CUT TO THE FARMER.

 

FARMER: What the hell is going on?

 

CUT BACK TO THE DOCTOR.

 

THE DOCTOR: Now for a very clever trick…

 

The Doctor presses a few buttons and the screen lights up brightly. Then the code flashes on the screens:

48.895689565489

 

THE DOCTOR: Set!

 

The Doctor slams a final button and smiles.

 

THE DOCTOR: No Cyberman can work with Earth numbers, this is the main ship. Like the capital city. I have sent out a signal using this code, and setting it on every Cyber ship.

 

AMY: So no Cyberman will be able to crack it?

 

THE DOCTOR: No! Fantastic! They’re defenseless!

 

HARPAL: But wont they be able to track this one down, and use the password?

 

THE DOCTOR: Because, we need to give the TARDIS back it’s power, and to the transmit beam to get back. So this ship will lose power and fall through space.

 

RIVER: Hang on, Doctor we’ve missed something…

 

AMY: What?

 

RIVER: There is an entire Cyber army down in the factory.

 

HARPAL: She’s right.

 

RIVER: Looks like someone’s warning to me.

 

HARPAL: Take your own advice don’t push it.

 

THE DOCTOR: Right lets go!

 

The Doctor presses buttons and the TARDIS comes onto the screen. The light is off and the TARDIS has frost on it. As the power is restored the TARDIS lights come on and the frost melts.

 

THE DOCTOR: Now that’s done.

 

The Doctor presses more buttons and the words flash up:

§§ TRANSMAT BEAM ACTIVE §§

 

The Doctor sonic’s the Transmat beam and a light surrounds them. Amy smiles and so does River.

 

CUT TO THE TARDIS. THE FOUR OF THEM APPEAR IN A BRIGHT LIGHT.

 

AMY: Oh my God!

 

HARPAL: We did it!

 

RIVER: No thanks to you, telling the Cyber’s the code.

 

THE DOCTOR: The ship!

 

They all run to the scanner. The ship sparks and begins to rumble.

 

CUT TO THE CYBER FACTORY INSIDE. THE CYBERMAN FALL AS THE FACTORY SPARKS AND FIRES START. THE CYBERMEN GRAB THEIR HEADS AND FALL TO THE FLOOR.

 

THE DOCTOR AND FRIENDS SEE ON THE SCANNER THE SHIP FALL AND DESCEND INTO DARKNESS.

 

THE DOCTOR USHERS HARPAL OVER TO A DOOR.

 

THE DOCTOR: Listen, Harpal. Believe me I am doing this with the best intentions, until I find out the Cybermen wont hunt you down because you know the code, trust me?

 

HARPAL: Course.

 

Behind Harpal a door opens, and The Doctor shoves Harpal in side. Harpal screams. There is a rumble and the escape pod leaves the ship.

 

AMY: What have you done?

 

THE DOCTOR: Sent him back to Earth.

 

RIVER: But his-

 

She stops.

 

RIVER: Nothing.

 

CUT INSIDE THE SPACE POD. HARPAL IS CRYING AND HE POUNDS ON THE SMALL WINDOW.

 

HARPAL: Doctor! Doctor! Let me back! Doctor, let me come back!

 

Harpal pounds on the window again, and gently slips down from it, dragging his diseased and with him…

 

CUT TO THE DOCTOR. AFTER A MINUTE OR TWO RIVER SPEAKS.

 

RIVER: Right Doctor. Back to Stormcage.

 

THE DOCTOR: Oh River why not stay?

 

RIVER: There’s no room for two of us in this TARDIS. And we’ve gone cold so take me back.

 

THE DOCTOR: I’m sorry River-

 

AMY: Doctor, I’m her mum. She’s big enough to make her own decision.

 

CUT TO RIVER’S STORMCAGE CELL. THE DOCTOR AND AMY STAND AT THE BARS WITH HARPAL AT THE TARDIS DOORS.

 

THE DOCTOR: Until next time River.

 

The Doctor goes into the TARDIS. As soon as they are gone River starts talking in a whisper.

 

RIVER: Mother listen to me.

 

AMY: What is it?

 

RIVER: It’s Harpal. You can’t trust him. Don’t let the Doctor get hurt. Please.

 

AMY: I don’t understand. What has he done? Or what is he going to do?

 

River leans to her mother’s ear.

 

CUT TO THE DOCTOR, AND AMY ON A BEACH.

 

AMY: River’s unsure of him. Harpal, I mean.

 

THE DOCTOR: I don’t care. She can believe what she likes. I decide who travels with me and he has know one else to go to.

 

AMY: Ok I wont argue. But just a warning. Be careful.

 

THE DOCTOR: Thank you but I don’t need it.

 

AMY: Doctor. I was wondering. I need to see Rory. Can I?

 

THE DOCTOR: Yes. Yes of course. Come on then, it’s getting nippy!

 

The Doctor walks inside the TARDIS. Amy looks worried and closes her eyes…

 

QUEUE ENDING THEME AND TITLES.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NEXT TIME:

 

AMY: Rory?

 

RORY: Amy.

 

Amy hugs Rory but he doesn’t move.

 

THE DOCTOR: Let’s go get Harpal!

 

HARPAL: What’s the news?

 

THE DOCTOR: Your hand, your disease…

 

HARPAL: I cured it.

 

THE DOCTOR: How-

 

HARPAL: I just did.

 

AMY: We need a holiday!

 

They step out of the TARDIS.

 

THE DOCTOR: Lucca! Tomorrow we can go to Florence!

 

HARPAL: Doctor there’s writing on the wall.

 

The wall says ‘Paranoid’

 

MONIQUE: You must stay away from Lucca and Florence. There is a creature, which roams the streets at night.

 

RORY: Creature?

 

Inside the church…

 

BEGGER: No poison will live inside God’s house!

 

A claw lunges towards the Doctor, Amy, Harpal and Rory…

 

 

 

 

WRITERS TAKE:

   This one was originally for episode 3. Then for episode 10. Then for a stupid reason to do with Rory being or not being there, I changed it to episode 7.

   This was tricky as this was the episode I had the least notes on. So I had to make it up as I went along. I got so stuck in the middle of part two that I started writing episode 11. When I got to part 3 everything got a lot easier, but then it got more complicated, and there was the power, the equations, and lots of things to manage. I think it wasn’t all bad considering I had no notes.

   Another scary thing is Rory and Amy’s relationship. It’s on a shaky path. Also another thing, there is definitely something up with Harpal. River knows it because she’s already gone through it all. Now she’s told Amy what’s going on, but what’s it going to take to convince the Doctor? And Harpal is now on Earth with a deadly alien disease, as old as he is, will the Doctor ever stop forgetting?
