8. Part 7

The Doctor bursts into Sami and Jonathan’s room, throwing the door wide open. Sami squeals and pulls the covers up over her. The Doctor immediately backs out, closing the door behind him with one hand and covering his eyes with the other.

Sami, embarrassed and outraged:
 Doctor! Haven’t you ever heard of knocking?!

 

Doctor:
 I didn’t know you’d be… SLEEPING!

 

Sami:
 That’s what people do at night!

 

Doctor:
 Yes but… You’re doing HUMAN-Y stuff!

 

Sami:
 You’re telling me you’ve never…

 

There is silence from The Doctor’s side of the door.

Sami:
 But you’re over 1000 years old, you MUST have-

 

Doctor: 
Sami, there are more important things to be discussing now than my…

The Doctor swallows.
 History!

 

Sami:
 What do you mean? Adriana’s in her cell, isn’t she?

 

Doctor:
 Yes. I checked. But Christian…

 

Jonathan:
 Doctor, what’s happened?...

 

Doctor:
 Christian’s the same as Adriana. His skin is blue, his eyes are staring, and he looks very dead.

 

Sami to Jonathan:
 And here comes the but.

 

Doctor:
 But he’s moving around!

 

Jonathan:
 What do you mean?

 

Doctor:
 Come and see!

 

After a second on silence, Sami opens the door, and The Doctor grins at her.

Sami:
 What are you so happy about?

 

Doctor:
 Oh, nothing!

 

 

Sami, Jonathan and The Doctor stand at the door of Christian’s room, peeking in through a crack in the door.

The Doctor looks down at Sami.

Doctor:
 Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

 

Sami:
 Zombies?

 

The Doctor nods excitedly.

Doctor: 
Zombies!

 

Jonathan:
 What are zombies?

 

Doctor:
 They’re-

 

Sami, interrupting:
 Bodies that have been brought sort of back to life that wander around feeding on brains. I love zombies movies.

 

Jonathan:
 I have no idea what you’re saying.

 

The Doctor turns around vertically so he is looking up at Jonathan.

Doctor:
 Zombies are the dead, re-animated by some sort of virus or bacteria or radiation or something, and the transfer their condition by biting you, turning you into a zombie yourself.

 

Jonathan: 
But Christian wasn’t bitten by Addy, was he?

 

Sami and The Doctor pause for a moment.

Sami:
 He’s got a point.

 

Doctor:
 Well yes, but I don’t know what else it could BE.

 

Sami:
 Well what do you propose we do?

 

Elijah, from behind the trio:
 What is going on in there?

 

The three of them jump in surprise.

Doctor:
 Christian’s having a nightmare.

 

Elijah:
 Doctor, it’s daytime. Christian isn’t asleep.

 

Doctor:
 Erm, yes, right.

 

Elijah, sighing: 
Would you also care to explain what Adriana is doing in a cell?

 

Sami:
 Something’s wrong.

 

Elijah:
 Yes, I know! She died, and you’ve locked her up!

 

Doctor:
 Elijah, she’s not as dead as you’d think.

 

Sami:
 She’s moving.

 

Elijah, skeptical:
 What?

 

Jonathan:
 Look at Christian.

Jonathan opens the door, and Elijah peers through.
 He’s the same as Addy. Dead, but moving.

 

Jonathan shuts the door as Christian walks towards them.

Elijah:
 But… That’s impossible!

 

Doctor, talking very quickly:
 That’s what I thought, but obviously he IS moving, and the sonic hasn’t picked up anything odd, there’s no signs of telepathic possession, there’s no rift or crack in Little Rodenville…

 

Sami:
 Could it be a virus?

 

Elijah:
 No virus I’ve ever heard of could do this to someone.

 

Doctor:
 Me neither. And that’s a first!

 

Jonathan, leaning against the door as Christian bashes against it: 
Doctor, we have a problem.

 

Doctor:
 Yes?...

 

Jonathan:
 Christian’s door doesn’t have a lock.

 

Doctor and Sami, in sync:
 Ah.

 

Elijah:
 What do you propose we do then, Doctor?

 

Doctor:
 We need a place to gather everyone in town, that Christian can’t get into. Because if he did… That would be not good.

 

Jonathan: 
The town hall?

 

Doctor:
That will have to do, I suppose. We’re going to have to make a break for it on 3. Ready?

 

Everyone nods.

Doctor:
 1… 2… 3!

 

The four of them run down the corridor and down the stairs, Sami last. As Sami starts down the stairs, she looks back and sees Christian shuffling out of his room, his skin pale blue, his eyes vacant. As he starts to raise his right arm, Sami runs down the rest of the stairs.

 

The Doctor closes Christian’s front door and buzzes the sonic screwdriver at it. The bolt slides into place, locking it.

Doctor:
 Get everyone you can into the town hall. I’ll go and check on Adriana, see if she’s alive.

 

Jonathan runs into the Town Hall and, after a second, the bell starts ringing. The confused townspeople start gathering in the middle of the square.

Robert:
 What’s going on?

 

Elijah:
 Something’s wrong with Christian and Adriana.

 

Augustus:
 Adriana died, Elijah. You know that. We saw her body.

 

Sami:
 Except she’s walking around.

 

Annie:
 That’s impossible!

 

Elijah:
 I thought that too, but it’s true. The Doctor reckons it’s some kind of illness, and he’s more qualified to know than me.

 

Augustus:
 Elijah, dead people don’t walk!

 

Sami:
 They do now!

 

Robert walks over to the door of Christian’s house.
 

 

Doctor, running from the jail:
 No, Robert, don’t!

 

Robert ignores The Doctor, and bashes the door in with his shoulder.

The Doctor stops running, and the town watch as Christian shuffles out of his house. Robert turns around, his eyes widening in surprise, and then Christian touches Robert on the shoulder. Robert’s eyes go vacant and he collapses on the floor. His skin starts turning blue and, after a second, he slowly picks himself up off the floor, as if he can’t quite control his movements, and then starts shuffling towards the townspeople.

Doctor, shouting:
 Everyone into the town hall, now!

 

The townspeople are running around panicking, so only a few of the hear The Doctor. More and more townspeople catch on, but Robert and Christian have started shuffling towards the townspeople, infecting as many as they can. As the townspeople run towards the town hall, The Doctor stands in front of them and starts to talk very quickly to them.

Doctor:
 What do you want? Why are you killing these people? What do you need?

 

Christian walks towards The Doctor, silent. As he raises his arm, Sami runs out and pulls the Doctor away from the possessed townspeople and into the town hall. Elijah and Jonathan slam and lock the doors behind him.
