THE HOOD: Do you know, what beauty, lies under a hood?...

After Gradean in school, and wolves in Italy, the Doctor takes Harpal home and back to civilization where he soon adjusts to home life, but on his way to school he spots a mysterious hooded figure, with red eyes, who begins to whisper questions in his mind. As giant wasps created by saucers fill the sky, Harpal sees the Doctor less frequently, and begins to doubt his intelligence and strength to defeat ‘The Hood.’ As time runs out and Harpal is on the run, will he ever know what beauty lies under a hood?

PART 1

THE HOOD

 

OPEN WITH HARPAL NARRATING. THE CAMERA SLOWLY ZOOMS ONTO HIS HOUSE.

 

HARPAL: Life with the Doctor was crazy to say the least, but this all got slightly out of hand when wolves roamed and Gradean invaded, now my days with the Doctor have come to an end. But my days of alien encounters, just began…

 

QUEUE OPENING THEME AND TITLES.

OPEN WITH HARPAL LYING ON HIS TRAMPOLINE IN THE GARDEN. HE TALKS TO HIMSELF.

 

HARPAL: I’ve let the team down. All of them relying on me.

 

Harpal hears a buzzing sound like a wasp. Only louder. Harpal sits up and narrates.

 

HARPAL: That day, I heard a weird busy bee. Although it wasn’t a bee. It was a wasp. But it wasn’t a wasp…

 

Harpal stand up and talks to himself.

 

HARPAL: What the, oi! Is this a sick joke? Oi!

 

He stops as he realizes the buzzing is behind him.  He starts jumping on his trampoline really high, then springs round.

 

HARPAL: Gotcha!

 

His face falls as he see’s:

 

HARPAL: Oh my god.

 

Harpal screams as he jumps higher into the giant wasp’s face, then he kicks his legs up: (Side view)

 

He sits on the trampoline, but then bounces again into the wasps face as he bounces on his back. He eventually falls on the trampoline, covering his face, and then a spaceship comes into view. It is a Dalek saucer…

 

DALEK: The human is important!

 

The shoot a laser at the wasp. The wasp screams and falls. Harpal rolls out of the way, as the giant was slams on the trampoline.

 

HARPAL: How the hell am I gonna move that in the morning?

 

The Dalek saucer flies away as Harpal see’s more giant wasps fluttering around the sky.

 

DALEK: (In the distance) Enlargement ray is operational!

 

Harpal slowly stand up, then hears a familiar noise. It is the noise of the TARDIS, and Amy, Rory then the Doctor step out.

 

AMY: Hello old friend.

 

HARPAL: Now you turn up!

 

A giant wasp flies down to the Doctor, and the doctor Sonics it. It shrinks down and so do all the other wasps in the sky.

 

AMY: What did you do?

 

THE DOCTOR: Broke the link, they are all harmless. I’m not a fan of giant wasps. What’s happened to you?

 

The Doctor bends down, and picks up the tiny wasp. He pops it in a petri dish from his pocket.

 

RORY: I hate wasps.

 

AMY: Oh how cute. Don’t be such a baby.

 

THE DOCTOR: Later Harpal!

 

The Doctor swings round back into the TARDIS.

 

HARPAL: Oi!

 

AMY: Sorry, I just can’t leave him on his own!

 

Amy goes into the TARDIS.

 

RORY: And I can’t leave her alone!

 

Rory goes into the TARDIS.

 

HARPAL: Oh well that’s just great!

 

CUT TO HARPAL BRUSHING HIS TEETH. IT IS LATE AT NIGHT AND HIS MOUTH IS FULL OF TOOTHPASTE.

 

HARPAL (NARRATION): Of course I saw the Doctor again, a few months later but this one was a shocker.

 

The Doctor bursts in the room and Harpal jolts his head up.

 

HARPAL: Doctor!

 

Harpal can’t speak properly as his mouth is full of toothpaste.

 

THE DOCTOR: I got married!

 

HARPAL: Oh no not again! To who?

 

The Doctor pulls Rory out from behind the door.

 

THE DOCTOR: Rory!

 

Harpal spits all his toothpaste out on the mirror opposite and starts coughing. The Doctor starts kissing Rory on the cheek rapidly.

 

RORY: Help…

 

HARPAL: Lucky Amy isn’t with you.

 

AMY (FROM BEHIND THE DOOR): Think again.

 

Amy kicks the door down and steps into the room holding a ‘space gun.’

 

AMY: Get away from my husband you… weirdo!

 

THE DOCTOR: Never!

 

Amy shoots the Doctor with the stun gun, grabs Rory and runs out of the bathroom.

 

Harpal sighs and stamps his feet.

 

HARPAL: (Narrates) Then, when I finally went to bed, I opened the cover and found Rory and Amy in there. I ran a mile. So did the Doctor. I printed off some divorce papers for him and Rory. The Doctor wasn’t having it though. Amy told me some weird space soothsayer hypnotised him into thinking he loved Rory as a joke. For some of us, it wasn't funny. 

 

CUT TO HARPAL COMFORTING THE DOCTOR IN THE LIVING ROOM. THE DOCTOR IS SOBBING.

 

THE DOCTOR: But I love Rory! I can’t give him up!

 

HARPAL: Oh pity’s sake! He is married to Amy! You are such an idiot! Pull yourself together! Right now, Amy and Rory are in my bed… talking things over… sort of and I’m not going to get a decent night sleep because you have had a sudden urge to snog Rory all of a sudden! What have we all told you about the black marker soothsayers on Venus?

 

The Doctor stops crying for a second. Then he falls into Harpal’s lap and starts wailing.

 

HARPAL: Oh Doctor!

 

Suddenly, a bright light fills the room as the Doctor still wails. Harpal covers his eyes, but after a few seconds, the light fades.

 

HARPAL: What the hell was that.

 

The Doctor wails louder.

 

HARPAL: Arrrgh!

 

Harpal slams a fist down on the Doctor’s head and he yelps.

 

CUT TO A FEW MONTHS LATER. HARPAL IS WEARING MONSTER SLIPPERS AND HE IS WATCHING PANORAMA ON THE TELLY.

 

REPORTER: Costs have gone up in electricity bills by 2.59% and research says…

 

Harpal hears the TARDIS noise.

 

HARPAL: Oh great.

 

The TARDIS materializes in front of him and the Doctor steps out.

 

THE DOCTOR: Harpal! I am now a free man! Don’t ask, Rory and I don’t talk about it.

 

HARPAL: Thank God.

 

The Doctor screams and points to Harpal’s feet.

 

THE DOCTOR: You’ve been inhabited by an alien entity!

 

HARPAL: What?!

 

The Doctor Sonic’s Harpal’s slippers and they catch fire.

 

THE DOCTOR: Oh that doesn’t usually happen.

 

HARPAL: Doctor!

 

THE DOCTOR: What?

 

HARPAL: Fire!

 

The Doctor screams.

 

THE DOCTOR: Amy! Rory! Fire!

 

The Doctor picks Harpal up by the waist and carries him kicking and screaming up the stairs into the toilet.

 

HARPAL: Doctor no! Doctor no!

 

THE DOCTOR: I love that film!

 

HARPAL: Don’t you dare!

 

The Doctor drops Harpal’s feet into the toilet, and at that moment Amy and Rory burst in and throw water everywhere.

 

AMY: Where’s the fire?!

 

HARPAL: Not here!

 

AMY: Oh, well-

 

HARPAL: I have had it!

 

He rubs the water from his eyes.

 

HARPAL: First, I get all of you lot thinking I’m a traitor, then I get giant wasps trying kill me, then I find the Doctor has married Rory as he couldn't stop himself going to the black markets of Venus, Amy I owe you 10 quid-

 

THE DOCTOR: What?!

 

AMY: Yes you do! 

 

HARPAL: Then, you and Rory leg it, then I find you trying to make a Amy or Rory junior in my bed, and I find a wailing Doctor on my lap, then I print you divorce papers, now the Doctor set’s fire to my slippers and dumps me in the toilet, then here’s the dream team with the nurse and the red head fire stopper!

 

There is silence for a while, as The Doctor, Amy and Rory look solemn.

 

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

 

AMY: We’re sorry. Aren’t we Doctor?

 

THE DOCTOR: Yes. Yes we’ll go. Come on Ponds.

 

They walk out of the room closing the door behind them. There is a window behind Harpal, and a bright light shines out of it. Harpal climbs out of the toilet and the bright light stops. He hears the TARDIS noise and realizes they have left.

 

HARPAL: (NARRATES) And I haven’t seen them since. Bit quiet, but I’ll manage. I’m doing well at school. Got an A* in my last art analysis. I go on the computer a lot more now too. Started blogging. I search ‘The Doctor’ in Google every now and then. It comes up; it’s all stories and rumours. ‘Have you seen this man?’ and all that. But I’ve noticed something. And it’s getting weirder. 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.

 

HARPAL CONT.: Ok, I know I look like a weirdo. But, that’s what it is. And it’s everywhere. In class, at home, on my way home from school. I’m getting scared. And then I spotted something else. And it just made it worse.

 

SHOW SCENES AS HARPAL NARRATES.

 

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. A man in a gown, or robe, like a monk with a hood, tied around the waist with a bulky golden rope. It’s eyes crackled and sparked red. That’s all I could see. The rest of his face was darkened by the shadow of the hood, but I could see his eyes. Glaring.

 

CUT TO HARPAL IN CLASS HE IS SITTING NEXT TO THE DOOR. THE DOOR HAS A GLASS SLIT GOING THROUGH THE CENTRE.

 

MISS HARRISON: So we need to think of the connotations and denotations of our characters, about the emotions and…

 

Her voice fades out as Harpal looks through the glass slit. He see’s the hooded figure. His eyes widen.

 

HARPAL: (Narration) And I saw it again, in English, I was whacked. I don’t see visions or go voodoo. I didn’t know who this guy was. But I knew would stay away and keep the memory alive.

 

Suddenly, a bright light fills the room, then a few seconds later it leaves. The hooded figure is gone.

 

MISS HARRISON: Harpal what do you think-

 

HARPAL: Did you feel that?

 

MISS HARRISON: What?

 

Suddenly, the bright light fills the room again, then a few seconds later it leaves.

 

HARPAL: That!

 

MISS HARRISON: Don’t play games with me-

 

HARPAL: But I’m not-

 

MISS HARRISON: I don’t want to hear it! Now, what…

 

Her voice fades out.

 

FOLLOW HARPAL’S DIRECTION AS IN THE TEXT.

 

HARPAL: (Narrates) I saw him on the way home as well. I walked out of the train station, (bus on the way, train on the way home with mates) and started walking home. Then I heard a voice. A low voice, like someone rasping for breathe. It said: ‘Do you know, what beauty, lies under a hood?’ I immediately turned around and I saw it. It’s eyes sparked and crackled and sparked.

 

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 out name not the Hood? Are we not the bringer, of your death?

 

The Hood reaches forward…

 

BLACKOUT.

 

QUEUE ENDING TITLES.
