HARPAL: We’re on Earth, right, and we’re being stalked by a crazy Italian, constantly getting earfuls of how rubbish Pond marriage is, and whilst that’s going on, we’re on the run from an extremely hairy Queen Vicki, that's what we have deal with!

Nothing seems to make sense, as Queen Victoria mutates, Rory crumbles, and Monique follows in Italy. The Doctor can’t make sense of it, or how to solve the issue. When he tries, his experiment goes wrong, and when morning breaks he realises he has let the wolf loose on the town…
The only way he can do it, is by turning back time....

4. The Legend of the Wolf

PART 4

THE LEGEND OF THE WOLF

 

QUEUE OPENING TITLES.

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ni9lQnLuiFs

 

AMY: Doctor!

 

Victoria looks up at Amy and hits her with her fist, slamming her into the wall, and taking a stall with her. Rory runs forward.

 

RORY: AMY!

 

Victoria jumps up and runs away over the rooftops. Rory kneels by an unconscious Amy, and digs her out from under the rubble. The townsfolk scream and run away as The Doctor winces, blood pouring from his arm. Harpal slides and kneels next to him.

 

HARPAL: Doctor! Doctor? Doctor are you ok? What do we do?

 

THE DOCTOR: It’s all right, I can fix it-

 

HARPAL: What with more Wolfsbane, oh yeah, that really worked!

 

THE DOCTOR: No I mean the wound.

 

HARPAL: Great. Wait don’t! There’s DNA in saliva. And there’s… saliva on you. Let us test it, to really check whether she’s still a lycanthrope.

 

Next to them Amy stirs.

 

RORY: Amy? Amy!

 

AMY: Rory?

 

THE DOCTOR: Pond are you ok?

 

AMY: Are you?

 

She shakes her head and perks up.

 

AMY: Doctor, Doctor you were bitten! She bit you!

 

THE DOCTOR: And you don’t think I know that!

 

Amy rolls her eyes.

 

AMY: We need to get you back to the TARDIS!

 

CUT TO THE TARDIS.  HARPAL OPENS THE DOOR AND RORY AND AMY CARRY THE DOCTOR INSIDE. HE IS UNCONCIOUS.

INSIDE:

THEY LAY THE DOCTOR ON THE FLOOR, AND AMY RUNS UP TO THE CONSOLE.

 

AMY: Do something! Scan him!

 

A TARDIS light flashes over The Doctor, and Amy looks at the scanner to see.

 

AMY: Time Lord. 100% Time Lord. No Werewolf!

 

She turns, shuts her eyes and slumps.

 

AMY: Thank God.

 

HARPAL: But how? The Wolfsbane! It didn’t work, it was meant to cure her. She’s still a Wolf!

 

AMY: Thanks, for that insight.

 

RORY: Wait a minute. You scanned The Doctor didn’t you?

 

AMY: Yes.

 

RORY: We need to scan the Werewolf saliva!

 

AMY: So if The Doctor is unchanged, then the wolf…

 

Amy’s eyes widen. Amy turns to the console.

 

AMY: Do it! Scan the saliva’s present in his body!

 

There is a beep.

 

AMY: You have Time Lord… and… wolf.

 

HARPAL: Werewolf?

 

AMY: No, just wolf.

 

RORY: So that must mean…

 

HARPAL: The Wolfsbane!

 

AMY: it worked!

 

They all shriek with laughter and happiness and Amy jumps up and down, clapping.

 

HARPAL: So hang on, the Wolfsbane worked, but fixed her as a wolf.

 

AMY: It must’ve done. But that explains a few things.

 

HARPAL: Like?

 

The Doctor stirs.

 

AMY: Oh come on, a plant can’t make someone stop mutating, it was our best shot, but I didn’t want to put it down. It cured her, but kept her as a wolf. Wolfsbane.

 

RORY: So all we have out there is a large wolf.

 

HARPAL: Exactly. What do we do with her?

 

THE DOCTOR: Do with what?

 

AMY: Doctor! The Wolfsbane cured her, but not in the way we thought. She’s fixed as a wolf! A big wolf.

 

THE DOCTOR: Can I fix up now?

 

HARPAL: Yes.

 

Regeneration energy flows over the bite, making the flesh reappear, and the Doctor’s arm to heal.

 

THE DOCTOR: Perfect.

 

The Doctor jumps up.

 

AMY: What now? We can’t leave her here.

 

THE DOCTOR: We have to move her. The problem is, Werewolves are aliens. The real ones, hence the first time I met Victoria.

 

AMY: So?

 

THE DOCTOR: We can use her. But it means we start it all.

 

RORY: I don’t get it.

 

THE DOCTOR: The first Werewolf was in Victorian times, but rumours started in the 15th century.

 

HARPAL: So what are we going to do?

 

THE DOCTOR: I know about Werewolves. A legend has to be started by someone…

 

CUT TO VICTORIA ROAMING IN THE SQUARE. NO PEOPLE ARE ANYWHERE TO BE SEEN, THEY ARE ALL HIDING. THE TARDIS MATERIALISES AND THE DOCTOR STEPS OUT.

 

THE DOCTOR: You pack a bite!

 

Victoria turns around and snarls.

 

THE DOCTOR: And I know where to put it!

 

The Doctor lifts his sonic into the air, and it whirrs and beeps loudly. The sound is deafening, and the Werewolf falls unconscious.

 

THE DOCTOR: Time to take you back in time.

 

CUT TO A FIELD. THERE ARE FARMERS WORKING. WE ARE IN THE MIDDLES AGES – THE 15TH CENTURY. THE DOCTOR, AMY, RORY AND HARPAL ALL WALK OUT OF THE TARDIS. THE FARMERS STARE AND FALL TO THEIR KNEES.

 

FARMER: Oh please, oh please what are you?

 

THE DOCTOR: I’m The Doctor. And I’m going to tell you a story.

 

CUT TO A VILLAGE, THE FARMERS RUN BACK SCARED AND SCREAMING.

 

FARMER: Werewolves! Werewolves! Werewolves are loose in this village!

 

TOWNS PERSON: What is this you speak of?

 

FARMER: A wolf, a huge creature, but this wolf is human. He turns on a full moon!

 

TOWNS PERSON 2: There is a fully moon tonight!

 

CUT TO THE TARDIS IN THE SAME FIELD OUT OF SIGHT.

THE DOCTOR AND RORY PULL VICTORIA THE WOLF OUT OF THE TARDIS AND LEAVE HER LYING ON THE FLOOR.

 

THE DOCTOR: She will awake by tonight.

 

AMY: Doctor why do we have to do this?

 

THE DOCTOR: So time can flow. We have a large wolf, it was us. We were the ones who created the legend in the first place, because of Victoria’s mutation, because of the wolf that bit her, that was in fact an alien host thing. Werewolves were never human. But they think she is an alien, because she is huge.

 

HARPAL: Well, we are part of history then.

 

RORY: You’ll run into us in history books soon enough.

 

They all get up, and go back into the TARDIS.

THE TARDIS DEMATERALISES.

 

INSIDE THE TARDIS.

 

AMY: So are you staying?

 

RORY: What?

 

AMY: With me? And him? And him? In the TARDIS? Are you staying?

 

RORY: Amy this trip has been amazing, and brilliant and mad, and I do miss this. And I miss home. One day I want to go there. And the only reason I am coming with you now-

 

Amy hugs him.

 

RORY: - Is because I want you to promise me that one day (She lets go) we will return and grow old together. At home.

 

AMY: I promise. I love you Rory.

 

RORY: I love you… stupid face!

 

AMY: No you’re stupid face!

 

RORY: No!

 

They hit each other playfully and laugh in the background; in the distance we can see The Doctor fake a smile. He is secretly sad…

 

QUEUE ENDING THEME AND TITLES.

HARPAL: I can’t do it. I am really getting used to life back here and I can’t keep chopping and changing.

 

THE DOCTOR: If that’s what you want…

 

HARPAL: And so, The Doctor left, and I was fine. I started blogging. I was blogging one day and a bright light shone out behind me. It’s been happening a lot. I’m suspicious. I took a picture on the webcam.

 

BUS STOP:

 

HARPAL: I was at the bus stop. Waiting for the 398 to get to turn round the corner. It’s always late. I immediately turned to my right and that’s where it stood.

 

THE HOOD: Do you know what beauty lies under a Hood?

 

IN CLASS:

 

HARPAL: What… the hell?

 

THE HOOD: Is our name not the Hood? Is our name, not of such beauty?

 

HARPAL: What do you want with me? What are you?

 

THE HOOD: Is our name not the Hood? Are we not the bringer, of your death?

 

 

 

 

WRITERS TAKE:

   This was a tricky story to do at first, as I didn’t have a clue what I was doing until the end of the second part. Then I made it up as I went. I was quite pleased and thought it slightly clever that it was The Doctor and Co who started the Werewolf tradition, as the Wolf in Tooth and Claw (which I loved) was an alien host, so I thought it fitted.

   Next week we have the story The Doctor isn’t that involved in, and it revolves around Harpal being haunted by a mysterious creature called: The Hood. (I actually wrote this one half through while I was writing episode eight!)
