THE DOCTOR: No, Pond. No. Love him, love him so, so much but do not, do not break him again. This is tearing you apart, and I don’t want it to be my fault.

When Harpal’s diseased hand cures itself, The Doctor and the Ponds decide to all go on holiday. Visiting Lucca in Italy turns into a time of terror as messages on walls and howling through the night turns suspicions into Werewolves, and past into present. With the mysterious Monique Bibiana warning them, will this wolf travel in the night and wreak havoc in Florence as Amy battles to protect the Doctor from River’s theory?

1. The Creature Of Old


 

PART 1

THE CREATURE OF OLD

 

OPEN IN THE DESERTED TOWN OF LUCCA. THERE IS A HOWL, AND THE MIST CLOUDING THE MOON SHIFTS SLIGHTLY.

 

ON THE WALLS, GRAFITI IS SCATTERED. THE WORDS ‘PARANOID’ AND ‘SCARED’ IN RED ARE PRINTED. A WOMAN POKES HER HEAD AROUND A CORNER. IT IS MONIQUE.

 

MONIQUE: (Narration) At night, a creature roams the streets of Lucca during the Hour of the Wolf. It has no end, no beginning, and no mercy. Some people have seen it, but others are just privy to stories. It gives birth in God’s sacred place.

 

CUT TO A CHURCH, A CREATURE, WITH TINTED BLUE VISION, WALKS THROUGH IT…

 

MONIQUE: (Narration) Nothing can stop it, as she faces her demons as on this night she turns, into a beast!

 

THERE IS A SCREAM AS THE WOLF ROARS AND BURSTS THROUGH THE CHURCH DOORS…

OPEN WITH RORY WALKING DOWN THE STREET WITH SHOPPING. THE TARDIS MATERIALISES BEHIND HIM. RORY LOOKS AROUND FOR A SECOND, SHAKES HIS HEAD AND BEGINS WALKING AGAIN. AMY STEPS OUT OF THE TARDIS, SHE SEE’S RORY, LEANS AGAINST THE TARDIS AND SMILES, WAITING FOR HIM TO NOTICE.

 

AMY: Rory?

 

Rory keeps walking.

 

AMY: Rory!

 

Rory turns around with a straight face.

 

RORY: Amy.

 

Amy breaks away.

 

AMY: How have you been are you all right?

 

Rory doesn’t say anything.

 

AMY: You, you changed your hair.

 

RORY: Mmm mm.

 

AMY: I, I like it, I-

 

RORY: No you don’t.

 

AMY: No I don’t…

 

AMY: So, you been ok?

 

RORY: Not great since you left me for a blue box.

 

AMY: What? No, no that’s not what happened-

 

The Doctor sticks his head round the TARDIS.

 

THE DOCTOR: Hello Rory!

 

Amy stops and roles her eyes.

 

THE DOCTOR: So, I was thinking, holiday. Maybe the planet Barcelona. All the time I’ve mentioned that planet I’ve never actually gone!

 

AMY: Doctor we don’t need- wait, did you say a holiday?

 

RORY: Amy-

 

THE DOCTOR: Course! Anywhere you want! Let’s go get Harpal!

 

The Doctor runs into the TARDIS. Amy turns to Rory and smiles.

 

AMY: So… you coming?

 

RORY: What do you think?

 

Amy punches Rory fondly.

 

AMY: How about a yes?

 

Rory does nothing. Amy’s smile fades.

 

AMY: Come on Rory, not like you to miss a holiday.

 

The Doctor sticks his head out of the TARDIS.

 

THE DOCTOR: Not like you either!

 

The Doctor steps back in the TARDIS and it dematerializes. Amy turns.

 

AMY: Doctor? Doctor! Doctor wait!

 

RORY: Oh.

 

Amy turns.

 

RORY: So it’s so bad you’re stuck with me.

 

AMY: No, no of course-

 

They hear the TARDIS noise.

 

AMY: Not…

 

The TARDIS materializes around them. The noise stops.

 

AMY: Doctor!

 

THE DOCTOR: What? You were just having a natter so I’d thought I’d pop by. So, natter on…

 

Amy looks at the Doctor.

 

AMY: (Angrily) Thank you Doctor.

 

Amy turns back round to speak but Rory has already walked off, and Amy see’s him walk down the steps.

 

AMY: Oh Rory.

 

The TARDIS shakes.

 

THE DOCTOR: Let’s go get Harpal!

 

CUT TO THE TARDIS MATERIALISING DOWN HIS ROAD. AMY AND THE DOCTOR STEP OUT OF THE TARDIS AND WALK DOWN THE ROAD. THE DOCTOR IS BEAMING CRAZILY.

 

AMY: You are such a weirdo!

 

THE DOCTOR: Just excited to get everyone see everyone together again!

 

THE DOCTOR: So are you and Rory!

 

There is silence for a while.

 

THE DOCTOR: Everything all right?

 

AMY: Um, No. No Doctor, no. Look, you know I love you-

 

The Doctor looks worried.

 

AMY: As a friend you idiot! But I can’t keep leaving Rory. It’s not fair on him.

 

THE DOCTOR: Can’t we share you?

 

AMY: No! And don’t say that, doesn’t sound right… but you’ve got River, and Harpal, and-

 

THE DOCTOR: Yes but they don’t always want me.

 

AMY: Yes they do, they always have! They’ve always wanted to be with you! Don’t lie to yourself.

 

They come to Harpal’s door. Amy knocks on the door.

 

AMY: Hey.

 

Amy taps the Doctor on the chin.

 

AMY: Keep that big chin up.

 

The Doctor smiles and Harpal suddenly opens the door.

 

THE DOCTOR AND AMY: Hello!

 

HARPAL: What’s the news?

 

THE DOCTOR: What don’t we get a hello?

 

HARPAL: With you the worlds at stake and theirs no time for hellos.

 

THE DOCTOR: Fair point.

 

The Doctor’s eyes drift to Harpal’s hand. There is no infection, the disease has gone.

 

THE DOCTOR: Your hand, your disease…

 

HARPAL: It’s fine, don’t worry-

 

THE DOCTOR: No I didn’t come back-

 

HARPAL: I cured it.

 

THE DOCTOR: What?

 

HARPAL: I cured it.

 

THE DOCTOR: How-

 

HARPAL: I just, I just did.

 

AMY: We need a holiday! That’s what you said Doctor didn’t you? A holiday?

 

Amy smiles and the Doctor realizes how much he’d miss her if she goes.

 

He pats her on the back.

 

THE DOCTOR: Holiday, that’s what I said.

 

He turns to Harpal.

 

THE DOCTOR: You game?

 

HARPAL: You bet! Let me just get my coat.

 

Harpal goes inside.

 

THE DOCTOR: A holiday of your choice.

 

Harpal walks out with a coat on and shuts the door.

 

HARPAL: Right, lets go!

 

CUT TO HARPAL ENTERING THE TARDIS FOLLOWED BY THE DOCTOR AND AMY. RORY IS SITTING ON THE SEAT.

 

HARPAL: Never get bored of this place.

 

Amy stays behind and shuts the door.

 

AMY: Don’t judge him, he’s just a kid…

 

THE DOCTOR: Right, holiday desinations! Where?

 

AMY: Scotland!

 

HARPAL: Le Louvre!

 

RORY: Home.

 

Everyone looks at Rory, and Harpal walks over.

 

HARPAL: Hi Rory.

 

RORY: Hello.

 

HARPAL: You all right?

 

Rory glares at Amy.

 

RORY: I’ll be just fine.

 

THE DOCTOR: How about…

 

He grins.

 

THE DOCTOR: Italy!

 

AMY: Pisa!

 

HARPAL: Florence!

 

THE DOCTOR: We can do it all! A fantastic place! Great food, beautiful beaches and scenery!

 

AMY: Two weeks sunbathing…

 

HARPAL: Two weeks on holiday!

 

RORY: Two weeks of a constant reminder that I can’t give my wife a decent holiday.

 

AMY: Rory stop.

 

RORY: Amy stop. Leaving me.

 

AMY: Rory-

 

RORY: No more lies-

 

HARPAL: Enough!

 

RORY: What’s it go to do with you?

 

HARPAL: You’re my friends. And we all need a break.

 

There is silence for a while.

 

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

 

The Doctor begins flicking buttons and levers in the TARDIS. And it rumbles. As it Amy stares at Rory but he doesn’t look at her.

 

CUT TO LUCCA IN ITALY. THE TARDIS MATERIALISES OUTSIDE A TOWER. HARPAL AND AMY STEP OUT. IT IS NIGHT TIME.

 

AMY: So where is this?

 

HARPAL: Lucca! Lucca in Italy!

 

AMY: It’s amazing.

 

Rory steps out of the TARDIS and smiles.

 

RORY: Yeah, it is pretty amazing.

 

Amy runs over.

 

AMY: See! I knew you’d brighten up!

 

The Doctor steps out of the TARDIS.

 

THE DOCTOR: Ha ha! I got it right!

 

RORY: What you didn’t know if you would get us here?

 

THE DOCTOR: Never do…

 

HARPAL: But, it’s night time, it, it was midday!

 

THE DOCTOR: Oi! Stop stealing my glory! I got us here didn’t I?

 

AMY: Doctor, what year is it?

 

The Doctor opens his mouth widely, and inhales a massive amount of air, he shuts his mouth.

 

THE DOCTOR: 2012.

 

AMY: Wierdo.

 

They all begin to walk, forward. When they are out of sight, Monique pokes her head round from behind the TARDIS.

 

CUT TO THE DOCTOR, AMY, RORY AND HARPAL WALKING THROUGH THE STREETS, THEY ALL LOOK PRETTY BORED.

 

HARPAL: There’s, there’s not much to do here is there?

 

AMY: To be honest, this place is dull, depressing, and frankly-

 

HARPAL: Scarily claustrophobic.

 

THE DOCTOR: Yes, yes that is, true…

 

Harpal looks at the wall, and on it says ‘PARANOID.’

 

HARPAL: Doctor there’s writing on the wall.

 

THE DOCTOR: Let me see.

 

The Doctor walks over.

 

THE DOCTOR: Probably just a coincidence.

 

The Doctor pats Harpal on the back.

 

THE DOCTOR: Nothing to worry about.

 

MONIQUE: You must stay away from Lucca and Florence.

 

Everyone turns to see Monique standing behind them.

 

MONIQUE: There is a creature, which roams the streets at night.

 

THE DOCTOR: Who are you?

 

RORY: Creature?

 

MONIQUE: Your warning.

 

They all hear howling, they all turn around. After a second or two, Amy turns.

 

AMY: What do you…

 

Monique is gone.

 

RORY: That noise is coming from the TARDIS.

 

HARPAL: Maybe we should, go back?

 

They here the noise, and they hear stomping.

 

AMY: wait, it’s coming this way!

 

HARPAL: We need to split up, Amy, Rory, you stay here, The Doctor and I will go back to the TARDIS.

 

THE DOCTOR: Yes, yes that’s a good plan, lets go!

 

The Doctor and Harpal run off, and Amy and Rory crouch behind some barrels.

 

CUT TO MONIQUE, SHE IS ALSO HIDING. A SHADOW PASSES OVER HER WITH A GROWL…

 

CUT TO AMY AND RORY HIDING.

 

AMY: Where is it? What is that?

 

RORY: Hopefully my death.

 

AMY: Rory!

 

RORY: No I hope it is! You always leave me Amy, am I not important?

 

The barrels shake as a creature walks past them, Amy crouches and stares in horror.

 

CUT TO THE DOCTOR AND HARPAL AT THE TARDIS.

 

HARPAL: There’s nothing here.

 

THE DOCTOR: Wait.

 

Harpal’s phone goes off.

 

HARPAL: Wait.

 

THE DOCTOR: What?

 

Harpal answers.

 

HARPAL: Amy? Ok, I’ll tell him.

 

He puts the phone down.

 

HARPAL: Amy says something is heading for us.

 

They hear stomping and a howl…

 

THE DOCTOR: Into the tower!

 

HARPAL: What?

 

THE DOCTOR: Come on!

 

The Doctor grabs his hand and they run in.

 

CUT TO AMY AND RORY:

 

AMY: Did you see its feet?

 

RORY: Yeah.

 

AMY: Like, like an animal…

 

CUT BACK TO THE DOCTOR AND HARPAL CLIMBING THE TOWER.

 

HARPAL: How much more?

 

THE DOCTOR: Just come on!

 

CUT TO THE DOCTOR COMING UP THE STAIRS AT THE TOP OF THE TOWER, HE LOOKS UP INTO THE DISTANCE.

 

THE DOCTOR: Wow!

 

Harpal comes up the stairs.

 

HARPAL: Well, I’ve done my exercise!

 

He stands next to the Doctor.

 

HARPAL: You can see everything…

 

CUT TO THE BOTTOM OF THE TOWER, THE VISION OF THE CREATURE IS BLUE, AS IT LOOKS TO THE STAIRS AND BEGINS TO RUN.

 

CUT TO AMY AND RORY.

 

AMY: Maybe we should go back and see what the Doctor-

 

RORY: Him! Him it’s always him isn’t it? It’s never me!

 

Rory gets up and walks away.

 

AMY: Rory!

 

CUT BACK TO THE DOCTOR AND HARPAL, THEY HEAR STOMPING.

 

HARPAL: Oh my God, what is that?

 

THE DOCTOR: I think, it might be a friend coming to play…

 

A shadow rises out of the steps and Harpal and the Doctor get a first look at the creature.

 

HARPAL: Doctor? What, is that?

 

THE DOCTOR: It’s a full moon Harpal, and the creatures of the night are coming out to play…

 

The bell in the opposite tower sounds, and the Doctor and Harpal back against the wall.

 

THE DOCTOR: For whom the bell tolls?

 

HARPAL: It tolls for thee.

 

THE DOCTOR: (Whispers) Show off…

 

The creature comes into view…

 

HARPAL: Doctor!

 

THE DOCTOR: It wants the moon!

 

THERE IS A HOWL…
