Day of the Daleks Original Airdate: Jan 1, 1972 Episode One Hallway It is evening. In a grand old house complete with tapestries on the wall and long case clock ticking away the decades, a UNIT soldier stands guard. An efficient middle-aged woman speaks to him. PAGET
You
will be sure that nobody disturbs him, won't
you
?
Miss Paget goes up the stairs.
Study Sir Reginald Styles, a silver-haired man, sits at his desk, writing with a proper fountain pen and using a blotter. A breeze blows the curtains and he goes over to discover a man in camouflage dress with a non-contemporary weapon. STYLES What the? The intruder pushes Styles until he is lying across the back of a chesterfield. STYLES Ah, no, no! No! Just as it seems Styles is about to be shot, there is a strange light and sound effect, and the intruder vanishes. Miss Paget enters. PAGET
Sir Reginald
? Are
you
all right? What happened?
STYLES He attacked me. Tried to kill me. PAGET Who did? What happened? STYLES He vanished. Disappeared into thin air, like a ghost. The French windows are open.
UNIT Office The Brigadier answers the telephone. BRIGADIER Lethbridge-Stewart? MAN OC Ah. I have the Minister for
you
.
MINISTEROC Hello? BRIGADIER Oh, good. Put him through, will
you
?
MINISTEROC Hello? Hello? BRIGADIER Good morning,
Minister
.
MINISTEROC I've just been on to Auderly House. I've rather had some rather disturbing news. BRIGADIER Yes. Yes, I've seen the report from Miss er, Miss Paget. It doesn't seem to be very much to go on. MINISTEROC I don't need to tell
you
how critical the situation is.
BRIGADIER Yes,
Minister
. I'm very well aware of Sir Reginald's importance in these negotiations.
MINISTEROC Then
you
're proposing to do nothing about it.
BRIGADIER No,
Minister
. I do not propose to ignore the matter. I'm putting my best man onto it. As a matter of fact, I was just about to brief him when
you
rang.
UNIT Laboratory The Doctor has the Tardis console in the room and is working on the dematerialisation circuit, as usual. JO
Doctor
, why don't
you
take a break?
DOCTOR It's maddening,
you
know. So nearly there. If I could only cut out their override on the dematerialisation circuit. Let me see those figures.
JO
Doctor
? I thought the Tardis was working again.
DOCTOR What gave
you
that idea?
JO Oh, being dragged off to an alien planet five hundred years in the future, for example. Oh,
you
know, all that business with the miners and the colonists.
DOCTOR
My dear Jo
, the Tardis was being operated then under remote control by the High Council of the Time Lords.
JO Well, if it worked for them. DOCTOR I don't want it to work for them. I want it to work for me. No one's going to turn me into an interplanetary puppet. Yes, of course. Why didn't I think of that before? The Doctor goes underneath the console. A moment later the doors to the lab open and a second Doctor and Jo are standing there. DOCTOR 2 Yes, of course, I remember now. Look, don't worry, my dear. I know you're alarmed but you needn't be. DOCTOR Yes, well I think that should do it. Why on Earth I never realised that. Then the Doctor sees himself standing there. DOCTOR Oh, no. What are you doing here? DOCTOR 2 Well, I'm not here. Don't worry. Well, that is, in a sense I am here, but
you
are not there. Yes, well, it's a bit difficult to explain really.
DOCTOR This won't do at all. We can't have two of us running about. DOCTOR 2 Yes, well don't worry. It will all sort itself Flash, bang from the console and the duplicates vanish. JO
Doctor
? What happened?
DOCTOR Well, it's a very complicated thing, time,
Jo
. Once you've begun tampering with it, the oddest things start happening.
JO But there was another
you
and another me. Well, where've they gone?
DOCTOR Back into their own time stream, of course. Or do I mean forward? JO But,
Doctor
, Idon't understand.
DOCTOR Look,
Jo
, don't worry about it. It was a freak affect. It's very unlikely to happen again. Hold that and give me those papers.
The Brigadier enters. BRIGADIER Ah,
Doctor
. Glad
you
're still here. I need your help.
DOCTOR Sorry,
Brigadier
. I'm busy.
BRIGADIER Yeah, so am I,
Doctor
, so am I. Now then,
you
've heard of Sir Reginald Styles?
DOCTOR No, can't say that I have. JO Well, isn't he the chief representative at the UN? BRIGADIER That's right. Key figure at the latest summit conference. DOCTOR
My dear chap
, I'm a scientist, not a politician.
BRIGADIER
You
know,
Doctor
, if
you
didn't spend so much time tinkering around with this wretched contraption,
you
'd realise just how bad the international situation's become.
DOCTOR Humans are always squabbling over something,
Brigadier
.
BRIGADIER Yes, well, this particular squabble looks like ending up in a third world war. The Chinese delegation have refused to attend. Without them, the conference can't even begin. Now Styles is flying to Peking in a few hours. There's just a chance that he can persuade them to change their minds. DOCTOR All right,
Brigadier
. So what's his problem?
BRIGADIER Well, he was working late last night, down at Auderly. JO Where's that? BRIGADIER Auderly,
Miss Grant
, is a Government owned country house about fifty miles north of London where the conference is due to be held.
JO Oh. BRIGADIER He suddenly started behaving rather oddly. Seemed to think that someone was trying to assassinate him. DOCTOR Any idea who? BRIGADIER Some sort of ghost, apparently.
Auderly The peace of the lawns near the house is disturbed by the light and sound effect of the previous night, which this time deposits a man in the middle of the meadow. He runs for cover, looks towards the house then flees as a strange sound starts up. - note, this is Dropmore House in Buckinghamshire, which was almost destroyed by fires twice in the 1990s. He runs along a path to a railway bridge over a canal. Suddenly a large grey-skinned alien with heavy brows and jaw knocks him down the slope. The alien and his companion walk down the slope, see that the man is unconscious, then go into a tunnel under the bridge. Study PAGET He said somebody attacked him and vanished. DOCTOR And
you
're absolutely certain that he used the word ghost?
PAGET Oh yes. But afterwards he Styles enters. STYLES
Miss Paget
. What's going on here?
PAGET These people are from UNIT,
sir
.
STYLES Who asked them to come here? PAGET I did, because of what happened yesterday. STYLES Nothing happened yesterday. BRIGADIER There seems to have been some sort of incident,
Sir Reginald
?
STYLES Nothing of any importance. JO Well, if
you
could tell us what happened?
STYLES I was working late. I must have dropped off. Freak gust of wind blew some papers off my desk. I woke up rather confused. I was picking up the papers when Miss Paget came in. BRIGADIER But
you
did mention ghosts.
STYLES Did I? Must have been having a nightmare. PAGET But the French windows were shut. I closed them before I went to bed. STYLES Then I must have opened them. DOCTOR Did
you
also make those marks on the floor over there? Muddy feet,
Sir Reginald
. Someone was in here, you know.
STYLES Are you accusing me of lying,
sir
?
BRIGADIER
Sir Reginald
, you've obviously been under considerable strain recently. Were
you
feeling at all unwell last night?
STYLES I felt, and feel, perfectly well. Now, if
you
'll excuse me, I've a lot to do. I'm due at the airport in an hour.
BRIGADIER
You
've no objection to my men searching the grounds?
STYLES None at all. Though I really don't know what
you
hope to find.
Railway bridge Soldiers, the Doctor and the Brigadier are combing the grounds thoroughly, and two are looking over the bridge to the canal. The unconscious man is spotted. SOLDIER He's over here! Benton, the Doctor, the Brigadier and Yates go along the towpath to the man. SOLDIER
Sergeant
!
Benton leaves. DOCTOR Oh, he's in a bad way, poor chap.
You
'd better get him to the hospital.
BRIGADIER Captain Yates. YATES Right away,
sir
.
Yates leaves. The Brigadier picks up the man's strange weapon. BRIGADIER It's a new one on me. What do
you
make of it,
Doctor
?
DOCTOR I'm not sure. Benton returns with a case on a strap. BENTON
Sir
?
BRIGADIER What've
you
got there,
Benton
?
BENTON I've no idea,
sir
. It was hidden about fifty feet inside the tunnel. Must have been put there recently, I reckon.
The case is full of circuitry.
Control room A man in a green high necked suit sits in a padded wrap-around chair like a cross between Ernst Stavro Blofeld and Number Two. He is played by Aubrey Woods doing a good Charles Gray imitation. The decor of the room is also mainly green, with young women sitting at various consoles. The big grey aliens - Ogrons - enter. CONTROLLER Your report? The Ogrons speak slowly, with a mouth full of large teeth. Klingonesque in a way. OGRON We found and destroyed the enemy. CONTROLLER Any complications? OGRON No complications. CONTROLLER Good. They will be satisfied. I did not say dismiss. I want an intensified effort. There can be no relaxation. Not until we have found all those responsible for this menace and eliminated them too. Now
you
may go. Keep me informed of all developments.
Study Styles enters, and looks shocked at the sight of the strange weapon. BRIGADIER Have you seen this before? STYLES Really,
Brigadier
. What sort of games are you playing?
BRIGADIER It's not a game,
sir
. It's our duty to protect
you
.
STYLES I don't need your protection. DOCTOR
Sir Reginald
, we've just found a very severely injured man down by the canal tunnel.
STYLES Oh really? And what did he look like? BRIGADIER Thirty five-ish, average build. He was wearing a sort of guerilla combat suit. DOCTOR And carrying that gun. STYLES I am very sorry, gentlemen, but I have rather more important things on my mind at the moment. If you'll excuse me. BRIGADIER I'll arrange an escort to take
you
to the airport,
sir
.
STYLES Thank
you
, but it shouldn't be necessary.
BRIGADIER I'm sorry,
sir
, but I think it will.
STYLES Oh, if you insist. Styles leaves. DOCTOR I'd like to get that gun down to the laboratory and run a few tests on it. BRIGADIER Anything else we can do? DOCTOR No, not for the moment. I think we'll just have to sit and wait and hope that our would-be assassin regains consciousness.
Ambulance YATES And stay with him every moment,
Benton
. Take down anything he says. Anything at all.
BENTON Leave it to me,
sir
.
UNIT Laboratory The weapon has been set up in front of a firing range. DOCTOR Well, basically it's a form of ultra-sonic disintegrator. JO You mean a ray gun? DOCTOR That's right,
Jo
, I mean a ray gun. Only it's far more sophisticated than any weapon yet invented on Earth. Now take a look at this.
The Doctor fires the weapon. The target vanishes in a flash of white light. DOCTOR Quite an effective little weapon, eh? BRIGADIER
Doctor
,
you
say this wasn't made on Earth. Do
you
mean it comes from another planet?
DOCTOR Well, that was my theory at first, yes, but the metallurgical analysis shows that the iron constituent is very much of this world. In fact, it was mined not very far from here. North Wales. BRIGADIER How do you explain that? DOCTOR Do you believe in ghosts,
Brigadier
?
BRIGADIER Let's be serious,
Doctor
.
DOCTOR I am. BRIGADIER Oh, come along,
Doctor
, come along.
DOCTOR Oh, my mistake. I was forgetting the unimaginative nature of the military mind. But we saw a couple of amicas seperatas a few moments ago, didn't we,
Jo
?
JO Did we? DOCTOR Yes, here in this laboratory. JO Oh,
you
mean when we
DOCTOR Mind
you
, they were manifestations of a much more benevolent kind. None of your clanking chains and chilly fingers, but ghosts, none the less.
JO That was because
you
were playing around with the time mechanism on the Tardis, wasn't it?
BRIGADIER Still can't get it to work, eh? The Doctor picks up the case the soldiers found. DOCTOR Well, I can't get this thing to work, either. But this is a form of time machine, of a very crude kind. JO How do
you
know?
DOCTOR Come over here. Look at this. Now what do
you
think that is?
JO It's a mini-dematerialisation circuit. DOCTOR Top of the class,
Jo
. Now then, pop this in here, like that.
He puts the little circuit into an inset in the case. DOCTOR Now, as far as I can gather, when
you
push this button, it should
The light display starts. DOCTOR Good grief! It's working! And in the ambulance, the patient vanishes from under Benton's actual nose.
Control room TECHNICIAN
Sir
?
CONTROLLER What is it? TECHNICIAN Time transmitter in operation,
sir
. Twentieth century zone.
CONTROLLER Can
you
fix the space-time coordinates?
TECHNICIAN I'm trying,
sir
, but it's very faint and erratic.
UNIT Laboratory JO Do be careful,
Doctor
.
DOCTOR All right,
Jo
, all right.
Control room CONTROLLER Well? TECHNICIAN No good,
sir
. There was a transference, I think, but the machine's cut out completely.
CONTROLLER Continue scanning. And next time
you
had better be more efficient.
The Controller looks at a large, golden, perpetually annoyed pepperpot. DALEK Report!
UNIT Laboratory The case has stopped working. DOCTOR Well, the thing's completely dead now. JO But it was working. DOCTOR Yes, it started to work. Oh, I see, yes. Yes, the temporal feedback circuit has overloaded. BRIGADIER The what's done what? DOCTOR In your terms,
Brigadier
, the thing's blown a fuse.
The intercom buzzes. DOCTOR Please. BRIGADIER Lethbridge Stewart? Yes,
Sergeant
. Really.
You
're sure? Yes, I see. All right,
Sergeant
,
you
'd better report back to Captain Yates. Goodbye. That was Benton. He was in the ambulance with the man we found.
DOCTOR Well? BRIGADIER Well, according to him, that man just vanished. Faded away like a ghost. JO Oh, no. BRIGADIER Well,
Doctor
, what now?
DOCTOR Well, everything that happens seems to centre round Styles' house. BRIGADIER Obviously. DOCTOR And whoever tried to harm him will probably try again.
Jo
, how would
you
like to spend the night in a haunted house?
Study Jo shuts the French windows, locking out the night. The Doctor enters with a tray, carrying a bottle and two glasses, and a cheese board. DOCTOR
You
know, one thing
you
can be certain of with politicians, is that whatever their political ideas, they always keep a well-stocked larder. Not to mention the cellar.
JO
Doctor
, ought
you
just to help yourself like that?
DOCTOR Well,
you
heard what Miss Paget said,
Jo
. We were to treat the place as our own.
JO I wish
you
hadn't sent all the servants away.
DOCTOR That's common sense.
You
can't expect a ghost to walk in a house full of people, can
you
? Come on, tuck in.
JO Well, I'm not really hungry, thank
you
,
Doctor
.
DOCTOR Well,
you
ought to eat something,
you
know. This is likely to be a very long night.
Jo jumps as a bell chimes. JO What's that? DOCTOR It's a clock chiming. I say,
you
really ought to try this gorgonzola cheese. It's absolutely delicious.
Terrace A bunch of squaddies run along the gravel path. BENTON Move! Yates is reporting in on a Land Rover's R/T. YATES Hello? Hello? Greyhound to Trap One. Greyhound to Trap One. How do
you
read me? Over.
BENTON All the lads are in position,
sir
.
YATES Thank
you
,
Benton
. Quiet so far?
BENTON Like a morgue. The strange light starts to pulse out of the tunnel under the railway bridge.
Study The Doctor has moved on from the cheese to the wine. DOCTOR Yes. Yes, that's a most good humoured wine. A touch sardonic perhaps, but not cynical. Yes, a most civilised wine. One after my own heart. Hallway Jo leaves the study and starts to go up the stairs when someone enters. BENTON Everything all right,
miss
?
JO It was until
you
came along.
You
took years off my life creeping about like that.
BENTON Well, I didn't want to disturb the Doc. What's he up to? JO Well, at the moment, he's carrying on rather like a one man food and wine society. BENTON Oh, talking of food,
you
, er,
you
couldn't get us a bite to eat, could
you
,
miss
? I'm famished.
JO Hang on.
Study Jo picks up the plate of cheeses and the second glass of wine. DOCTOR
Jo
?
JO All in a good cause.
Hallway BENTON Ah,
you
've saved my life.
But before he can even cut into a piece of cheese. YATESOC:
Sergeant Benton
!
BENTON
Sir
! sotto No.
YATES Just what do
you
think you're up to,
Benton
?
BENTON I was just checking,
sir
.
YATES Yes, well I want
you
to go and check on number three patrol. Move,
Sergeant Benton
.
BENTON
Sir
.
Benton leaves. YATES
Jo
, how thoughtful.
Yates has a drink of the wine. JO That wasn't very kind of
you
.
YATES RHIP,
Jo
.
JO Pardon? YATES Rank Has Its Privileges. Thank
you
.
Study DOCTOR And what was all that about? JO Feeding the troops. DOCTOR Oh, quite right. Do
you
know, I remember saying to old Napoleon. Boney, I said, always remember an army marches on its stomach.
JO Well, Mike Yates certainly does.
Doctor
?
DOCTOR Mmm? JO
You
didn't mean what
you
said to the Brigadier about ghosts?
DOCTOR Well, there are many different kinds of ghosts,
Jo
. Ghosts from the past and ghosts from the future.
JO Well, what kind did
you
have in mind?
DOCTOR What's more to the point is, have they got us in mind? The French windows blow open. JO What DOCTOR It's just the wind. The Doctor closes the windows and draws the curtains. DOCTOR Look, why don't
you
take a nap?
Railway bridge The light display happens, and three figures in camouflage gear appear, two men and a woman. ANAT We'll wait here till it's light. SHURA Time waste ANAT I said, we'll wait. Study Jo sleeps in a leather armchair as the Doctor works on the case. It is about 7 am. and the birds are singing. DOCTOR Wake up,
Jo
. It's all right. It's morning.
JO Nothing's happened? DOCTOR No, nothing at all. Apart from two UNIT soldiers patrolling the tow path getting zapped into nothing by Shura.
UNIT Office The Brigadier enters, jacket unbuttoned. BRIGADIER Any chance of a cup of coffee? R/T OPS The canteen's closed,
sir
.
BRIGADIER It would be. Anything? R/T OPS Not a murmur,
sir
, all night.
The radio bursts into life. R/T OPS It's Geneva,
sir
.
GENEVAOC: Emergency! Emergency! Emergency to all UNIT national HQ's. Stand by for a special announcement. ANNOUNCEROC Here is the latest official report. The international situation is growing steadily worse. War now seems inevitable. As yet, there is no further news of Sir Reginald Styles, who has flown to Peking in a last minute attempt to persuade the Chinese to reconsider their withdrawal. GENEVA OC Observation satellites report troops massing along the Russian-Chinese frontier. In South America and southern Asia, reports say fighting has already broken out in many regions. All UNIT personnel are hereby placed in maximum alert.
Study The Doctor is fiddling with the case again. He is watched from across the lawn by the three strangers. DOCTOR
Jo
!
Jo
!
The three split up and run for the house. Shura gets in first. He sees the case and puts his weapon down on a table. The Doctor enters with a glass. Shura dashes for him but is knocked down with two quick Venusian karate blows. He tries again and is pinned to the chesterfield. SHURA Please. Turn that machine off or they'll kill all of us. Please!
Control room TECHNICIAN
Sir
?
CONTROLLER Yes? TECHNICIAN We've picked up that time transmitter again. CONTROLLER You're sure? GIRL TECHNICIAN Yes,
sir
. Same frequency, same time zone. Much stronger now.
CONTROLLER Right. I want the exact space-time coordinates, so whatever happens don't lose it.
Dalek Control room CONTROLLERon monitor: We have a fix on the time transfer device. It is operating again in the twentieth century time zone and it must be them. DALEK
You
have obtained the space-time co-ordinates?
CONTROLLERon monitor: We're trying now. The trace is much stronger this time. There is every chance DALEK
You
must not fail!
CONTROLLERon monitor: Security forces are standing by. If we do get the coordinates, what are your instructions? DALEK Whoever is operating the time machine is an enemy of the Daleks. All enemies of the Daleks must be destroyed! Exterminate them! Two grey Daleks join in with their favourite refrain. DALEKSExterminate them! Exterminate them! Exterminate them!
Episode Two Study The Doctor still has Shura pinned down when Anat enters. Boaz has Jo in an arm lock. ANAT Let him go. Now then, turn off that machine. Dalek Control room A metal door opens and the Controller walks up to the entrance. CONTROLLER I have to report that we have lost the trace. It was operating only a few moments. DALEK We are not interested in excuses. Find them! Find them! Find them! Study Shura has his weapon pointed at the back of the Doctor's head. ANAT So,
you
are the man. Outwardly so innocent looking but capable of such crimes. Who would ever know?
DOCTOR
My dear young lady
, I'm afraid I haven't the slightest idea what
you
're talking about.
ANAT
You
have said and done enough. The time has come for your execution.
DOCTOR Execution? ANAT Those are our orders. DOCTOR May I ask whose orders? ANAT It is no concern of yours.
Shura
.
JO But he hasn't done anything! He's a scientist! ANAT No last words of repentance,
Sir Reginald
?
DOCTOR No, only that you're making one fundamental mistake. ANAT And that is? DOCTOR A question of mistaken identity. I am not Sir Reginald Styles. ANAT Is that the best
you
can do?
JO But it's true. Sir Reginald DOCTOR Sir Reginald is at this moment many thousands of miles away. In Peking, to be precise. ANAT
You
are lying.
DOCTOR No, I'm not. He flew there yesterday. ANAT I do not believe
you
.
DOCTOR It's all there in the paper in front of
you
. Why don't
you
take a look?
Anat picks up the Financial Times from the desk, looks at it then shows it to Shura, who nods. DOCTOR I'm sorry to disappoint you. By the way, that machine of yours is a bit antiquated, isn't it? Do you mind if I suggest some improvements and SHURA Shut up! BOAZ It's a trick. Kill him now. ANAT If
you
are not Sir Reginald Styles, who are
you
and what are
you
doing in his house?
DOCTOR Well, believe it or believe it not, I came here to see you. BOAZ We're wasting time,
Anat
. Here, I'll do it.
ANAT Who is in command of this mission! We are soldiers, not murderers. Keep guard outside, I'll deal with these two. I said out! Boaz leaves. ANAT Now then, answer my question. Who are
you
and what are
you
doing here?
Outside Auderley House BENTON Two men missing,
sir
.
YATES Are
you
sure?
BENTON I'm positive. I've doubled checked and there are two men missing. YATES From the patrol? BENTON Yes,
sir
. Now, there's just one possibility. They could be in the house. I mean, it's none too warm a day, is it,
sir
?
YATES Well, let's go and check.
Study ANAT Answer my question sensibly. How could
you
know we were coming?
DOCTOR Because you've already tried to kill Styles once and failed. It was logical that you would try again. SHURA And
you
deliberately took his place.
DOCTOR That's right. I wanted to talk to you. ANAT Why? DOCTOR To find out where you came from. And more to the point when. Boaz enters. BOAZ Two soldiers approach. ANAT Hide! Boaz takes Jo, Shura takes the Doctor and they go into the hallway.
Hallway ANAT Down there! BOAZ Hurry! Cellar They clatter down the stairs. ANAT Stay where you are! Anat turns off the light. Hallway Anat pushes the cellar door ajar slightly to listen. YATES
Doctor
?
Jo
? Try the study,
Benton
.
Study BENTON
Doctor
? Anyone there?
Boaz puts his hand over Jo's mouth.
Hallway YATES
Doctor
?
Miss Grant
?
BENTON What do
you
make of it,
sir
?
YATES Greyhound Two to
UNIT Office YATESOC Trap One. BRIGADIERinto phone I see, sir. YATES Greyhound Two to Trap One. BRIGADIER Well, I've already alerted my main personnel. R/T OPS Trap One. Over. BRIGADIER Oh yes, naturally in a national emergency, we'll liaise with the defence forces. R/T OPS I'm sorry, the Brigadier is busy at the moment. BRIGADIER Oh, I'll have to go now, sir. I've got the Minister coming through on the scrambler. Goodbye. Lethbridge Stewart? R/T OPS Hang on, I'll see if I can get him. MAN OC: Ah good, I have the Minister of Defence for
you
.
BRIGADIER Right, put him through. R/T OPS Captain Yates,
sir
, on four.
BRIGADIER I can't speak to him now. R/T OPS He says something very odd is happening at Auderly House. If
you
could have a quick word with him,
sir
?
BRIGADIER All right. Yes, what is it,
Yates
?
YATES OC A couple of my men missing,
sir
, and the Doctor and Miss Grant. Not a sign of them.
BRIGADIER Look really,
Yates
, I've got a major international crisis on. I really haven't got time for any
MINISTEROC:
Lethbridge-Stewart
?
BRIGADIER Yes, yes, that's right. MINISTEROC: Yes, it's the Minister here. BRIGADIER One moment,
sir
. Listen,
Yates
, search the grounds again or report back to me. Out. Yes,
Minister
.
Hallway YATES Well, you heard what he said. Let's get down there. Cellar ANAT Light. BOAZ So what do we do now? ANAT Tie them up. SHURA Sit down there. Anat checks that the hallway and study are empty then goes back to the cellar. By this time the Doctor and Jo are sitting on the floor, bound and gagged. ANAT Right, they're clear of the house. Have
you
finished?
SHURA Yes. ANAT We must go. Quietly! Shura, Anat and Boaz leave. The Doctor gets his gag out of his mouth. DOCTOR That's better. JO muffled What about me? DOCTOR
You
know, I've got a good mind to let
you
stay like that. So much more peaceful. In any case, even if I released
you
,
you
'd probably ask me a lot of fool questions.
Jo gets her own gag out. JO I've only got one question. Who are they? DOCTOR On the face of it, three rather desperate people. JO Well, they're criminals. They must be. DOCTOR You're prejudiced. JO Well, aren't
you
? They tried to kill
you
and me.
DOCTOR Yes, that's not in their favour, I'll admit. You know, we shouldn't really judge them until we find out why they're here. Well, come on,
Jo
. What about trying out some of that escapology of yours?
JO Well, I've been trying but ropes are too tight. DOCTOR I'll tell
you
what. Have a try at untying mine.
JO Okay. They get back to back. DOCTOR Got them? JO Where'd they come from? DOCTOR Well, technologically speaking, that gun of theirs is about two hundred years ahead of its time. Your time, that is. The twenty second century visiting the twentieth. A planned expedition through time to meet and kill an important politician. Now, why? JO I'm the one who's supposed to be asking the questions. DOCTOR He's obviously not only important to us, he's also important to them. Or history, their history, must talk a lot about Sir Reginald Styles, I think. JO
You
mean, they travelled back in our time to try and change history?
DOCTOR That's it, yes. How are
you
doing?
JO Not very well. These knots are rock hard. DOCTOR Well, in that case, there's only one thing left for us to do. JO I know. Wait. DOCTOR You're learning,
Jo
.
JO
You
know, I still don't get it, that changing history bit.
DOCTOR Have
you
got a better theory?
JO Well, no. It just doesn't fit them. They seem more like a bunch of thugs to me. DOCTOR Fanatics,
Jo
, not thugs. Changing history is a very fanatical idea,
you
know.
Control room CONTROLLER We are maintaining constant watch, but there is no sign of any time transference module in operation. DALEK All criminal elements must be tracked down and destroyed. CONTROLLER Well, I am doing everything possible, but DALEK They will have returned to the time zone where the first criminal was eliminated. You will dispatch security forces to search for them. CONTROLLER Of course at once. And the new equipment? DALEK The Time Vortex Magnetron is set to the frequency of the module that was traced. Anyone using that module will be diverted in the space-time vortex and attracted here. CONTROLLER But only if that particular module is used? DALEK It is necessary to know the frequency. CONTROLLER But surely no one will use the module? They must realise that we can trace them. DALEK Do not dispute with the Daleks! The function of the human is to obey! Activate the Magnetron! Study Anat is using her communicator. ANAT Intercept to Base. Intercept to Base. Do you coordinate? Do you coordinate? Intercept. No good. There is a massive disturbance in the vortex. BOAZ We cannot fail again. This is our last chance. ANAT We must get fresh orders. The time coordinates are crucial. BOAZ We cannot wait for new orders! SHURA Look, why don't I return to the tunnel? There's better chance of contact there. ANAT Right,
Shura
. Ask them
BOAZ Why ask them anything? Isn't it obvious what we must do? We wait here and kill Styles. ANAT And if we are detected? BOAZ We hold those two as hostages. We kill them if necessary. ANAT Get alternative orders. SHURA Right. Shura leaves through the French windows. BOAZ
You
are soft,
Anat
. What do two lives matter when so much is at stake?
Railway bridge Shura hides from Benton and Yates in a Land Rover, then runs down under the bridge. He checks on a globe device wrapped in plastic and hidden in long grass, puts his weapon with it then gets out the communicator. SHURA ZV6 to Eagle. ZV6 to Eagle. Do you connect? Over. A shadow falls across him, then an Ogron hits him, hurting Shura's arm. Shura manages to grab his weapon and shoot the Ogron into nothingness. UNIT Office BRIGADIER What do
you
mean, missing?
YATES Well, there's not a sign of them. BENTON We searched the house and the grounds,
sir
.
YATES The Doctor, Jo and a couple of my men, vanished. BRIGADIER Now listen,
Yates
, I've been talking to the Minister. Styles seems to have pulled it off. The Chinese have agreed to attend and the conference is on again.
YATES Oh, when's it fixed for? BRIGADIER Tomorrow night, so
you
see the spot this puts me in. into phone Get me Auderly House.
Study ANAT Where is he? BOAZ I told
you
,
Anat
.
A trimphone trills. BOAZ Leave it! ANAT No. Suspicious. Next time the soldiers may find us. Get them up.
Cellar DOCTOR
Jo
, every choice we make changes the history of the world.
JO I just don't understand. I mean, why don't they go back to September the 12th if that's where they want to be.
You
know, have another go.
DOCTOR Ah, that's the Blinovitch limitation effect. JO The what? BOAZ On your feet, both of you!
UNIT Office YATES Honestly,
sir
.
You
're wasting your time. He's not there.
DOCTOROC Hello? Hello? BRIGADIER
Doctor
?
DOCTOROC Yes. BRIGADIEROC Lethbridge Stewart. DOCTOROC Ah. BRIGADIER Is everything all right there?
Study DOCTOR Yes, fine,
Brigadier
. Yes, things couldn't be better.
Anat is holding the phone to the Doctor's ear. BRIGADIEROC Yates and Benton came to look for
you
. Said the place was deserted.
DOCTOR Did they? Oh yes, we were probably down the cellar at the time. Old Styles keeps a remarkably good selection of wines,
you
know.
UNIT Office BRIGADIER Now listen,
Doctor
, you're sure that everything is normal down at that house? Because Styles is coming back there tomorrow night.
Study DOCTOR Look, I don't that's very wise,
Brigadier
.
BRIGADIEROC Well, why not, if everything's all right?
UNIT Office BRIGADIER It is all right, isn't it,
Doctor
?
Captain Yates
was very concerned about
you
.
Study DOCTOR Yes, well, you tell Captain Yates not to worry. Everything's fine. And tell old Styles too, and the Prime Minister. BRIGADIEROC Right. DOCTOR Oh, and
Brigadier
?
BRIGADIEROC Yes? DOCTOR Don't forget to tell it to the Marines. Goodbye.
UNIT Office YATES There
you
are,
sir
. I said there was something wrong.
BRIGADIER I'm going down to that house myself. Lay on a jeep for me, will you? I'll meet
you
there later.
Study Unseen, Jo is trying to get her hands free. ANAT He's coming. Sir Reginald Styles is coming here. DOCTOR Well, that surprises
you
? I should have thought with your insight into the future. Oh no, in your case, it'd be the past, wouldn't it.
BOAZ The conference tomorrow night. Our dates were right after all. ANAT All we have to do is to wait here until he returns and then Jo gets her hands free, and grabs the little time machine case. JO Right! Drop your guns! If you don't, I'll smash this to pieces. DOCTOR
Jo
, put that thing down. I've only just got it in working order.
JO I mean it. ANAT
Stupid child
!
You
do not know what
you
are doing.
JO Oh yes I do. You're going to let us both out or you'll be stranded here for ever. BOAZ We don't need that machine. We have another one. ANAT The man who owned that machine is dead. His body is back in our time zone. JO
You
're bluffing.
ANAT Put it down and don't be silly. DOCTOR
Jo
, do as she says.
The time machine starts up. BOAZ Drop it. Drop it! Too late. Jo falls through time and lands in front of the Controller and his Ogrons.
Study DOCTOR
Jo
?
Jo
! Look, can't
you
do anything?
ANAT No, it's too late. DOCTOR What's happened to her? ANAT Disintegrated. Dispersed around the time vortex. BOAZ If she was lucky. DOCTOR And if she wasn't? BOAZ Re-embodied in the twenty second century. ANAT Believe me, she would be better off dead.
Control room The Controller gives an Ogron the time device. CONTROLLER You may go. The Ogrons leave. CONTROLLER
You
see, they're really not as terrifying as they look.
JO What are they? CONTROLLER Ogrons. They're a form of higher anthropoid. They used to live in scattered communities on one of the outer planets. They make very useful servants. JO Servants? What do they do? CONTROLLER Oh, we use them as policemen. They're very simple, very honest, very loyal. Do please sit down. The Controller offers Jo his chair. JO Thank
you
. Is this really the twenty second century?
CONTROLLER Oh, don't worry. We can return
you
to your own time, but tell me
Miss
, er?
JO Grant, Jo Grant. CONTROLLER
Miss Grant
, these three people who attacked
you
. What did
you
make of them?
JO Well, they were sort of guerillas, I suppose. CONTROLLER They are cruel and ruthless fanatics. JO
You
know who they are?
CONTROLLER Unfortunately, yes. But what
you
don't know, is how lucky
you
are that they didn't get rid of
you
straight away.
JO They tried to kill the Doctor. CONTROLLER He's still with them , is he, this friend of yours? JO Yes, they're holding him prisoner. CONTROLLER Then I am afraid he is in very grave danger. JO But they've no reason to harm him. They know he's the wrong man. CONTROLLER
You
don't know these people. We have spent years trying to track them down. If
you
knew some of the terrifying crimes they have been capable of. If anyone stands in their way, they are without mercy.
JO I can believe it. CONTROLLER However, there is a chance that I may be able to save your friend. JO Could
you
?
CONTROLLER I can try. There are means but I shall need your help. JO How can I help? CONTROLLER Well, first of all, I shall want to know exactly where
you
came from and when.
JO Well, we were at Sir Reginald Styles' house, about fifty miles from London. CONTROLLER Now,
you
've told me the year. Can
you
tell me the exact date?
JO That's easy. It was September the 13th. CONTROLLER Excellent. Now,
you
must be tired,
you
must be hungry. We do have special guest rooms. Leave everything to me. Oh, there is one last question. These criminals, can
you
tell me exactly where they entered your time? I mean, did they manifest themselves in the house itself?
JO I don't think so. CONTROLLER Somewhere outside the house? Some hiding place? JO I don't know for sure, but there's a tunnel by a canal not far from the house. We found that time machine there. CONTROLLER A tunnel. Thank
you
. I'll call
you
as soon as we have any news.
Jo leaves with a woman. CONTROLLER
You
see?
She
trusts me implicitly.
Dalek Control room DALEK The criminals are using the tunnel as a transfer point. We will prepare an ambush in the twentieth century time zone. CONTROLLERon monitor: We have security forces in the area. With any luck, they will drive the guerillas straight into our hands. I shall take charge of the operation myself. DALEK I shall lead the expedition! This time there must be no mistake! The enemies of the Daleks will be destroyed! Cellar The Doctor is being tied up again. ANAT Hurry! Shura may be back! Boaz leaves with Anat. The Doctor starts rubbing his ropes against the edge of a wine rack. The sharp metal cuts it quite quickly. Study ANAT Where is he? He should be back. Boaz sees Ogrons coming across the lawn. BOAZ
Anat
! Look!
ANAT Shoot! They get two of the Ogrons before the others return fire, destroying the French windows. ANAT Fall back! BOAZ We can get through the library. Come! Boaz is knocked over by the Doctor opening the door. ANAT Stay where you are!
Boaz
, get out!
Boaz
, come on!
Boaz tries to tackle the Doctor, but is easily thrown off. ANAT Come on,
Boaz
, out! Out, out!
Anat and Boaz leave. The Doctor puts on his cape as an Ogron crashes through the remains of the French windows. DOCTOR How do
you
do? Hai!
The Doctor high-kicks the Ogron and gets its weapon, then makes a run for it.
Terrace Anat and Boaz shoot at two approaching Ogrons then run. The Doctor arrives and makes one Ogron vanish with his weapon. The second falls in a hail of machine gun bullets. BRIGADIER
Doctor
, what on earth's going on?
DOCTOR Thank
you
,
Brigadier
, for that timely intervention.
BRIGADIER Who is that creature? DOCTOR Yes, well, I'll explain about him later. Excuse me,
old chap
, I'm in a hurry.
The Doctor drives off in the Brigadier's Land Rover. BRIGADIER
Doctor
, come back at once!
Railway bridge Anat and Boaz run into the tunnel as the Doctor drives up. He runs after them. Inside the tunnel there is a sound, and a Dalek appears.
Episode Three Tunnel The Doctor runs, and two grey Daleks glide after him through what turns out to be quite a maze. Suddenly he comes upon Anat and Boaz with a time machine. BOAZ Get back! Get back! DOCTOR Please, wait. I've got to talk to you. ANAT Keep away! DALEK 2 Exterminate! BOAZ
You
'll get caught in the time field!
And so he does. The three travel along a vortex to the same place, although presumably not the same time. BOAZ We warned
you
.
DOCTOR Yes. Yes, so you did. ANAT This may come as a shock to
you
, but
you
've just travelled two hundred years through time.
DOCTOR Thank
you
. But I'm probably more familiar with the concept of time travel than
you
are. Now wait a minute. Before the time transference, I saw a Dalek.
BOAZ
You
know of the Daleks?
DOCTOR Indeed I do. I know them only too well. They've been my bitterest enemy for many years. BOAZ Then
you
're a fool to have let yourself be brought here.
DOCTOR Look, I came here in order to find Miss Jo Grant. ANAT I told
you
, she's probably dead.
DOCTOR But as long as there's a chance. BOAZ Come on,
Anat
.
DOCTOR Wait a minute. What is my best way of finding her? BOAZ That's your problem. ANAT We can't just leave him. BOAZ I can. Come! They hear a whistling sound and footsteps in the dark. ANAT Run,
Doctor
. Run!
Anat and Boaz go one way, the Doctor ducks down a side tunnel just as Ogrons come pounding along. The Doctor avoids being spotted by running through the maze until he comes across a ladder leading up to a manhole cover. He goes up and discovers that the once fine grounds of Auderly House are now an overgrown wasteland. Underground, the Ogrons report to their masters. DALEK 2 Have
you
found them?
OGRON No, they escaped. DALEK 2 Hunt them! Exterminate them! DALEK Exterminate them! Exterminate them! Above ground, the Doctor hears the clink of metal in time with footsteps nearby, and hides behind a ruined piece of walling. A troop of Ogrons march past. When it is clear, the Doctor looks towards where they came from - a cluster of white high-rise building.
Dalek Control room The Controller enters. DALEK Report! CONTROLLER The security guards have combed the tunnels. They've found nothing. DALEK
You
have failed the Daleks!
You
will be punished!
CONTROLLER The fault is not mine! Your security guards let them get away. Those creatures are useless! DALEK 2 They are loyal to the Daleks. CONTROLLER As loyal as they are stupid. They will never be a match for human guerillas. DALEK 2 No one can succeed who opposes the Daleks. CONTROLLER For every guerilla cell that you destroy, another one springs up. They have stolen your time machines and copied them. They steal your weapons, your explosives. DALEK These criminals will be exterminated. The Daleks will destroy them. CONTROLLER If only
you
would let me recruit more human security guards, I
DALEK Humans are treacherous and unreliable! CONTROLLER Not all humans. I have served you faithfully. DALEK Do not dispute with the Daleks! Obey without question! CONTROLLER Very well. There was one curious thing. The girl referred to a companion in her own time zone. She called him the Doctor. DALEK 2 Doctor? Did you say Doctor? CONTROLLER He appears to have got through to our time. He was seen by the guards. DALEK The Doctor is an enemy of the Daleks! He must be found at once and exterminated!
Control room The Doctor's approach to the one of the white buildings is watched by a CCTV camera. He examines a large square door with a logo above it, and it opens inwards. Naturally, he enters. DALEK 2OC Alert! Alert! Area one one seven! TECHNICIAN Continue scanning. Dalek Control room CONTROLLER All forces are on full alert. I can assure you that we will secure his arrest at any moment now. I will go myself and supervise the search. DALEK Wait! You have not been dismissed. There has been a drop in recent production figures. CONTROLLER That can be explained. DALEK Explanations are irrelevant. Production targets must be maintained. CONTROLLER We will reach the targets on the next work period. DALEK For the next work period, target figures will be increased by ten percent. CONTROLLER But that's impossible! If we push the workers any further, they will die. DALEK 2 Only the weak will die. Inefficient workers slow down production. Obey the Daleks. CONTROLLER Very well. We will do our best. DALEK
You
may go.
Control room CONTROLLER Well? TECHNICIAN We have a tracking report on that stranger. CONTROLLER The Doctor? TECHNICIAN He has managed to penetrate the outer perimeter of work centre one one seven. CONTROLLER Have the guards there been alerted? TECHNICIAN Yes. They'll pick him up once he's inside. CONTROLLER I want the work figures for centre one one seven kept separate from general analysis. I want to take a special look at them. TECHNICIAN Is there something wrong there? CONTROLLER Perhaps. I want the work figures for all the factories in the central zone fed into the work computer. The results tabulated for me immediately. TECHNICIAN Very good. CONTROLLER See I get those figures. Rebel cellar Another man in camouflage clothes sneaks round a ruined building and down into its cellar. BOAZ Don't gloss over it,
Anat
. We failed.
ANAT We had no choice once our plan was known to them. BOAZ If
you
'd listened to me, we still could have done what was needed.
ANAT We did all we could.
Monia
, our orders were to eliminate Styles, right?
MONIA Yes, but you failed. BOAZ We could have succeeded. MONIA Then why didn't you? ANAT He wasn't there. Security guards found us. BOAZ But Anat went soft. MONIA Be quiet. ANAT The trouble with
you
,
Boaz
, is
MONIA Both of you! We have to think now. The situation is different. BOAZ As I see it, it's exactly the same. We still have a job to do. MONIA No. There may be other ways. I've had a report from one of our contacts. A girl has been captured. They're holding her prisoner at the control centre. ANAT The same girl? The one who operated the time module at Styles' house? MONIA It fits your description. ANAT Well, at least she's alive. BOAZ In the hands of the Daleks? She won't live long. MONIA Can she tell them anything? BOAZ Nothing of importance. Have they picked up that Doctor yet? MONIA Not yet. It's only a matter of time.
Work centre GUARD 2 Move! Move! Come along there, you scum! Move! A human is shouting at a bunch of emaciated slaves emptying gravel from dustbins into a silo. The Doctor peers around a corner. GUARD 2 All right, move! Move! Go on! The Doctor moves away but has to dodge back when he sees two guards walking towards him. An Ogron hits him over the head. Control centre suite The Controller and Jo are sitting on the floor of a large room. CONTROLLER Some more grapes,
Miss Grant
?
JO No thanks, really I couldn't. That was a fabulous meal. CONTROLLER Oh, it was just a light snack, I assure
you
. Now later on, I have a real treat in store for
you
. A banquet of genuine twentieth century food. Because I'm afraid most people don't eat like this nowadays, we've managed to get down the main food elements to pills and tablets.
JO Look, I don't want to seem ungrateful. CONTROLLER Something's worrying
you
?
JO Well,
you
did say
you
might be able to get me back. To my own time, I mean.
CONTROLLER Our scientists are working at it, but time travel is a very difficult, it's a very dangerous business,
you
know.
JO The guerilla's machine got me here easily enough. CONTROLLER That was a lucky fluke, I assure
you
, nothing else.
You
could just as easily been killed.
JO Then what about the Doctor?
You
did say something about rescuing him.
CONTROLLER There is something I have not told
you
.
JO About the Doctor? Look, is anything wrong? CONTROLLER He has been seen in our time zone with the criminals who attacked
you
. Doubtless they kidnapped him.
JO Where is he now? CONTROLLER Oh, don't worry. We're on his track. I expect news of him at any moment now. JO Can I help you find him? CONTROLLER Unfortunately, no.
You
have to stay here for your own safety.
JO My safety? CONTROLLER If those criminals saw
you
here, they might think that
you
had betrayed them, and in any case they would try and harm
you
.
JO Is that why there's a guard on the door? CONTROLLER Exactly. He is there simply for your protection. The Technician enters. CONTROLLER If
you
will excuse me a moment? Well?
TECHNICIAN A message,
sir
.
CONTROLLER I have good news for
you
. We have found your friend the Doctor.
JO Is he all right? CONTROLLER Don't worry. I can assure you he is alive and well.
Interrogation room A semi-conscious Doctor is put in a chair by two Ogrons. GUARD Well, perhaps now
you
'll tell us who
you
are.
DOCTOR
You
wouldn't believe me if I told
you
.
GUARD
You
're a spy.
DOCTOR Am I? Who am I spying for? GUARD I'm asking the questions. I repeat.
You
're a spy.
DOCTOR That wasn't a question, that was a statement. GUARD Careful. Our friends here don't get much fun. DOCTOR Poor fellows. I'm sorry I can't oblige them at the moment. I'm not in the mood for games. GUARD All right! I want to know what
you
're doing here.
DOCTOR I've already told
you
what I'm doing here. I'm looking for a girl called Jo Grant!
GUARD Who's she? Another spy? DOCTOR Don't be stupid,
man
!
A grill slides up and a man dressed like the Controller, except in grey, enters. MANAGER Well? GUARD He's not exactly being cooperative. MANAGER Isn't he? That's very foolish of him. Have you told him what will happen if he doesn't cooperate? GUARD I've even given him a free sample. MANAGER Don't worry. Leave him to me. I know how to deal with his sort. GUARD I only need a bit more time. MANAGER Out! GUARD All right. We'll be outside if you need us. Come. The guards and Ogrons leave. MANAGER Which group are
you
from?
DOCTOR What? MANAGER Quick. We haven't much time. Who sent
you
?
DOCTOR Look, nobody sent me. I'm not a spy or a guerilla. I haven't the faintest idea what
you
're talking about.
MANAGER For heaven's sake man, I'm trying to help you. Admit it! You're a spy! CONTROLLER Is this the man? MANAGER Yes, Controller. CONTROLLER Then why is he being treated in this fashion?
My dear Doctor
, I cannot apologise enough. I am the Controller of this region.
You
're a very elusive fellow, you know. I've had quite a job in tracking
you
down.
DOCTOR Then I'm glad
you
finally succeeded.
CONTROLLER I've been looking forward to meeting
you
.
You
are an honoured guest of our government.
DOCTOR You surprise me. CONTROLLER I'm sorry if the Ogrons were a little uncivilised. It was all a misunderstanding, I do assure
you
. The whole thing has been sorted out now. Make sure that the Doctor is taken immediately to the guest room at regional control.
DOCTOR Frankly, I don't know whether I can stand much more of your hospitality. CONTROLLER A very great friend of yours is waiting for
you
there.
DOCTOR Miss Grant? CONTROLLER Yes. DOCTOR Is she safe? CONTROLLER Of course. Looking forward to seeing
you
. I shall follow later. In the meantime, the guards will take good care of
you
. Please?
The Doctor leaves with a single escort. MANAGER What's going on? Who was he? CONTROLLER That is no concern of yours. MANAGER As you wish,
Controller
.
CONTROLLER What does concern
you
, however, is the production quota for this factory.
MANAGER There have been difficulties. The workers are CONTROLLER Your production figures have been consistently lower than any other factory in the central zone. MANAGER I'm sorry. Things will improve, I promise. CONTROLLER Indeed they will. For the next work period, targets are to be raised by ten percent. MANAGER That's impossible! I can't do it! CONTROLLER Then I shall just have to find someone who can, shan't I? And
you
know what that will mean, don't
you
? To
you
and to your family.
MANAGER Please, I, I didn't mean it. I'll do it somehow. CONTROLLER Good. We'll just regard this as a friendly warning, shall we? MANAGER Thank you,
Controller
.
You
're very kind.
The Controller leaves and the grill closes. The Manager takes a communicator from a box. MANAGER ZV ten to Eagle. ZV ten to Eagle. Do you connect? MONIAOC: We connect. Proceed.
Rebel base MANAGEROC Time short. They're getting suspicious. A man was here. A stranger, caught on the grounds. MONIA Identify. MANAGEROC High intelligence. They call him Doctor. I don't know who he is, but he's important. They're taking him to the guest suite at control. MONIA Do
you
know why he's important?
Interrogation room MANAGER No. Check your source at control point An Ogron hits the Manager. MONIAOC ZV ten? ZV ten, do you connect? ZV Rebel base MONIA Ten? Control centre suite The Doctor, Jo and the Controller are sitting, or in the Doctor's case, reclining Roman style, on cushions. CONTROLLER Some more wine,
Doctor
?
DOCTOR No, thank you, no, not for me. Though I must admit, it's an excellent vintage. Well, it's the finest I've tasted since, er, well, since we had dinner at old Styles' house. Do you remember,
Jo
?
JO It seems a long time ago. DOCTOR It was. Two hundred years to be precise. And quite frankly, I wish I was back there now. CONTROLLER Naturally,
you
prefer the twentieth century,
Doctor
. After all, it is your own time.
DOCTOR Oh, I've known many times, and some of them much more pleasant than others. JO Well, I quite like it here, I must say. Everyone's been most kind. DOCTOR Well, I met some people today who were far from kind. CONTROLLER That was a simple mistake,
Doctor
, I assure
you
.
You
must not jump to conclusions.
DOCTOR Well, better than jumping from the crack of a whip from some security guard. Do you run all your factories like that,
Controller
?
CONTROLLER That was not a factory,
Doctor
.
DOCTOR Oh? Then what was it? CONTROLLER A rehabilitation centre. A rehabilitation centre for hardened criminals. DOCTOR Including old men and women, even children? CONTROLLER There will always be people who need discipline,
Doctor
.
DOCTOR Now that's an old fashioned point of view, even from my standards. CONTROLLER I can assure you that this planet has never been more efficiently, more economically run. People have never been happier or more prosperous. DOCTOR Then why do
you
need so many people to keep them under control? Don't they like being happy and prosperous?
JO
You
're being a bit unreasonable,
Doctor
.
DOCTOR Am I now? JO Well, look, the Controller wants to help
you
.
DOCTOR Does he? I wonder why? JO
You
're not on the side of the criminals, surely? They wanted to kill
you
.
DOCTOR When I meet a regime that needs to import savage alien life forms as security guards, I begin to wonder who the real criminals are. JO Those creatures aren't really savage. CONTROLLER Exactly. They are simply guard dogs. They just do what I tell them. DOCTOR
You
mean there aren't enough humans around that will follow your orders so blindly?
CONTROLLER That is not what I was saying. DOCTOR Isn't it? Then what
you
're saying is that the entire human population of this planet, apart from a few remarkable exceptions like yourself, are really only fit to lead the life of a dog. Why?
CONTROLLER
You
have no right to say that!
DOCTOR Haven't I? Who really rules this planet of yours? CONTROLLER I'm sorry, I must go. I have work to do.
You
will excuse me.
The Controller leaves. JO
You
shouldn't have spoken to him like that.
You
don't know the whole picture.
DOCTOR Neither do
you
,
Jo
. Neither do
you
. That man is no more than a superior slave himself. Humans don't rule this world any longer,
Jo
.
JO Then, who does? DOCTOR The most evil, ruthless life form in the cosmos. The Daleks.
Dalek Control room The Doctor is on the large monitor, but there is no sound. CONTROLLER Is it the same man? DALEK The physical appearance does not match our data. CONTROLLER Then it is not your Doctor? DALEK The appearance of the Doctor has changed before. CONTROLLER And how will you find out? DALEK We will use the mind analysis machine. Control centre suite DOCTOR Right. Now, do
you
understand exactly what to do?
JO Yes, ready when
you
are.
DOCTOR Good. The Doctor goes and stand to one side of the door. DOCTOR Right. Now. Jo screams. JO Help! Help! Help! An Ogron enters. The Doctor hits him but he doesn't fall. They trade blows until Jo smashes the wine bottle over the Ogron's head. DOCTOR Pity. That was rather a good vintage. JO What? DOCTOR It doesn't matter. Come on. They run outside the building where a three-wheeled buggy happens to be standing with the keys in the ignition. The Doctor drives it away with Jo hanging on the pillion and guards chasing after them.
Dalek Control room DALEK 2 The prisoners have escaped. They have broken through the outer perimeter. DALEK Find and exterminate them! CONTROLLER We need them alive! DALEK The prisoners will be recaptured and returned here for mind analysis! The Doctor rides to the scrubland near the tunnels, but a group of Ogrons have him going in circles over concrete foundations. Finally the front wheel digs into a pothole and stops. The Doctor has an Ogron weapon shoved in his ear. Rebel base ANAT Well? MONIA He's captured. Taken for processing. We must rescue him. BOAZ Rescue him? Are
you
mad? From there?
MONIA I say we must. BOAZ Suicide. MONIA Are
you
afraid?
BOAZ Me? Of course I am. I'm not a fool. What is he to us? MONIA We have fresh information from one of our contacts at control centre. He is the sworn enemy of the Daleks. He's the one man they're afraid of. Don't
you
see? It's our only hope. If we don't act quickly, it may be too late.
Dalek Control room The Doctor is strapped down on a table. On the monitor are changing images of his two previous incarnations. DALEK
You
are the Doctor!
You
are an enemy of the Daleks! Now
you
are in our power!
You
will be exterminated!
DALEKS
You
will be exterminated!
You
will be exterminated!
Episode Four Dalek Control room CONTROLLER Stop!
You
mustn't kill him!
DALEK Be silent. CONTROLLER Don't
you
realise he can help us?
DALEK 2 The Doctor is an enemy of the Daleks. How can he help us? CONTROLLER He has had contact with the guerillas. He has valuable information. DALEK
You
have proof of this?
CONTROLLER I know he's working for them. The manager of one one seven has been proved to be a subversive agent, and the Doctor was trying to contact him when we picked him up. DALEK 2 We will force the truth from him with the Mind Analysis machine. CONTROLLER But look at him! You've practically killed him just getting a simple admission of identity. He'll die before he tells you anything else. DALEK What is your plan? CONTROLLER Let me interrogate him. DALEK Why should
you
be more successful?
CONTROLLER Because I understand human psychology. I shall be able to gain his confidence, to put pressure on him through the girl. By the time I have finished with him, I shall be able to crush the guerilla organisation entirely. DALEK Release him.
Interrogation room The grill opens. JO The Doctor! How is he? GUARD Come with me. JO But Dalek Control room The Doctor is exhausted, and kept on his feet by two Ogrons. DALEK The Daleks have discovered the secret of time travel. We have invaded Earth again. We have changed the pattern of history. DOCTOR You won't succeed, you know. DALEK The Dalek empire will spread through all planets and all times. No one can withstand the power of the Daleks! CONTROLLER Take him away. Rebel base Monia puts a home-made map on a rough wooden table. MONIA Now, the control centre is here. As far as we know they're being held prisoner in this block here. BOAZ Then how do we get through? MONIA The disused underground railway of the old city. There's an exit right by this wall. BOAZ Even as a ruin it has its uses. MONIA Come, time is short. Control centre suite The Controller is using the gentle touch again, with more bottles of wine. DOCTOR
My dear man
, how can I tell you what I don't know myself?
CONTROLLER But
you
were in contact with the guerillas?
JO But not from choice. Look, they were going to kill him. I know the Doctor would help
you
if he could.
CONTROLLER I am trying to help him! I've already save his life. DOCTOR Yes, for your own purposes. CONTROLLER Look, if you do not tell me everything that manager knew about these criminals, where they operate from, what their plans are, then the Daleks will destroy both of you. DOCTOR I don't doubt it. CONTROLLER Do you value life so little? DOCTOR On that contrary, I value it enormously. The Daleks will kill us whatever we tell you. CONTROLLER Not if you cooperate with them. DOCTOR As you cooperate with them? Do you really think that makes any difference? CONTROLLER They can be reasonable. DOCTOR Reasonable? They tolerate you as long as you're useful to them. CONTROLLER I am a senior government official. DOCTOR
You sir
,
you sir
, are a traitor! You're a Quisling!
CONTROLLER Silence! You do not understand. Nobody who did not live through those terrible years can understand. Towards the end of the twentieth century, a series of wars broke out. There was a hundred years of nothing but killing, destruction. Seven eighths of the world's population was wiped out. The rest were living in holes in the ground, starving, reduced to the level of animals. JO So the Daleks saw their opportunity and took over. CONTROLLER There was no power on Earth to stop them. DOCTOR So, they've turned the Earth into a giant factory, with all the wealth and minerals were looted and taken to Skaro. CONTROLLER Exactly. Men who were strong enough, of course, were sent down the mines, the rest work in factories. JO Why? Why are they doing all this? CONTROLLER They need a constant flow of raw materials. Their empire is expanding. JO How did you come to work for them? CONTROLLER They chose a few humans to help them get things going again, to organise the remaining population. My family have been controllers in this area for three generations. DOCTOR A family of Quisling's, eh? CONTROLLER We have helped make things better for the others. We have gained concessions. I have saved lives! DOCTOR Wouldn't
you
have helped more by organising the fight against them?
CONTROLLER No one can fight against the Daleks. DOCTOR That's not what your criminal guerillas seem to think, is it. CONTROLLER A handful of fanatics. Most of them have been killed already. I assure
you
there is nothing they can do to change things.
Outside Central Control A guerilla fighter jumps and Ogron and knocks it out. Anat takes on two more. DALEK Exterminate! Exterminate! Exterminate! BOAZ
Anat
, look out!
Boaz dashes forward and sticks a limpet bomb onto the Dalek's casing. It explodes immediately, killing both it and him. More guerillas and Ogrons are vapourised. MONIA Come, we must reach the control centre. Come! Anat pauses by Boaz's body. MONIA No. Come, come!
Control centre suite CONTROLLER If
you
don't give me the information I need, there is nothing I can do to help
you
.
DOCTOR For the last time, I tell you I haven't got any information. And quite frankly, even if I had, I wouldn't give it to
you
!
The guerillas burst in. MONIA Right, stay where
you
are!
CONTROLLER Guards! MONIA Guards?
You
have no guards. They're all dead.
ANAT Are
you
all right?
DOCTOR Yes, thank you. All the better for seeing
you
.
ANAT
You
're coming with us. No harm must come to these two. Too much depends on them.
MONIA As for
you
,
my friend
.
DOCTOR Put that gun down. There's no point in murdering him. MONIA
You
don't know how much blood there is on his hands.
DOCTOR Nevertheless, he's not your real enemy. MONIA He helped the Daleks. He's worked for them. DOCTOR They would always have found someone. Now just leave him. ANAT Right, let's go.
Railway bridge YATES We've searched everywhere,
sir
.
BRIGADIER Then search again,
Yates
.
YATES We've been through every inch of the tunnel,
sir
.
BRIGADIER And even the Doctor can't vanish into thin air. He must be somewhere. Extend the radius of the search. YATES I'll need some more men,
sir
.
BRIGADIER
You
can have all you want. From now on, this house is top priority.
A dispatch rider hands over a message. BRIGADIER reads Sir Reginald Styles and other delegates arriving by special plane at RAF Manston at 1800 hours.
Rebel base JO But how do
you
know this?
MONIA Oh, there are books. Even during the wars, people found time to study, to write about it. ANAT What to
you
has not yet happened, is to us history.
DOCTOR This history of yours, it talks about Sir Reginald Styles? MONIA Oh yeah. He pretended to be working for peace, but really he just wanted power for himself. DOCTOR So the conference he called was just a trick? MONIA He managed to lure the world leaders to a remote country house, and he pretended they needed absolute quiet if the meeting was to succeed. But then, there was a devastating explosion. ANAT And Styles was killed with the others. He must have set a bomb and mis-timed the charge. MONIA There were accusations, counter-accusations, and then the wars began. That was the turning point. JO But if this true, Sir Reginald Styles must be completely round the bend. DOCTOR So, you went back into our time to kill Styles before he could carry out his plan. MONIA Right. We'd been fighting the Daleks for years, but it was hopeless. Eventually we must lose, so we thought, what else can we do? ANAT We learnt through one of our spies that the Daleks had succeeded in creating a time machine. We even managed to steal a copy of the plans, and we built one of our own, so that we could go back into history to the exact point where things started to go wrong. MONIA With one action, we could them. Mankind could have a chance to take a new direction. ANAT But even now, the transfer isn't always stable. People materialised in your time and then just faded away. JO The ghost that Styles saw? MONIA Now, somehow the Daleks found what we were doing, and they sent Ogrons back into your time after us and attacked one of our men. DOCTOR Well, that must have been the man that we saw down by the canal tunnel.
You
remember,
Jo
, the one who vanished from the ambulance?
ANAT Yes, we fixed on the tunnel as a place that was stable in your time and in ours. We used it as a transfer point. Well, you know the rest. DOCTOR Yes, well, there's one thing I don't quite understand and that is why were you so keen to rescue us? Well believe me, we're grateful, but MONIA Well,
you
told us yourself.
You
're an old enemy of the Daleks.
DOCTOR Yes. MONIA Then
you
will help us to beat them.
DOCTOR What do
you
expect me to do?
MONIA Well,
you
can succeed where we've failed,
Doctor
. We want
you
to go back into your own time and kill Styles.
The injured Shura is still in the twentieth century, skirting around the cordon of steel the Brigadier has thrown up around Auderly House until he gets to an outbuilding and goes inside. DOCTOR You're asking me to commit murder! ANAT No! We're asking you to kill one man and prevent millions more dying. DOCTOR That is still murder. MONIA Isn't it worth it to save the human race from the Daleks? DOCTOR Yes, but would it? ANAT We've told
you
how it happened.
DOCTOR But your history could be wrong, you know? Now listen, why don't you send us back to our time? We know the future now. Maybe there are other things we can do? ANAT
Monia
, we're wasting valuable time. Every minute that goes by
MONIA
Doctor
, will
you
help us? It's our only hope.
JO I still can't believe that Sir Reginald Styles is a ruthless murderer. DOCTOR Yes, I agree,
Jo
. Vain to the point of arrogance, a trifle obstinate, perhaps, but basically a good man. So, if it happened, how did it happen? Any of your people still in our time zone?
MONIA No. ANAT Oh, Shura. He left just to send a message and we never saw nor heard from him again. We assumed he must be dead. Shura has somehow made his way to the wine cellar under the main house with the globe device that was hidden by the tunnel in episode two. He primes the device and starts it up. MONIA Look, why are
you
so interested in Shura?
DOCTOR I'm curious, that's all. ANAT Curious? Well, that's funny. Mark and Boaz got killed to save
you
and
you
're curious.
MONIA
Anat
!
DOCTOR Look, please believe me, I'm completely with
you
about the ends. I only disagree as to the means.
MONIA All right. What do
you
want to know?
DOCTOR This mission of yours to the twentieth century. What did you take with you? ANAT The usual battle gear. Radio, disintegrators. DOCTOR Any sabotage equipment? ANAT Only a few charges of Dalekanium. DOCTOR Dalekanium? ANAT It's a highly effective type of explosive. We stole the formula from the Daleks. DOCTOR Could it destroy a house? MONIA What are
you
trying to say,
Doctor
?
DOCTOR Well, don't
you
see? This has happened before.
ANAT What has? DOCTOR You went back to change history, but you didn't change anything. You became a part of it. MONIA What are
you
talking about?
DOCTOR If Styles didn't cause that explosion, somebody else did. ANAT Well, obviously, but who? Shura! DOCTOR Isn't that exactly what he would have done? One last suicidal attempt to carry out his orders? MONIA It's possible, I suppose. DOCTOR You're trapped in a temporal paradox! Styles didn't cause that explosion and start the wars. You did it yourselves.
Dalek Control room DALEK
You
have failed the Daleks. The Doctor has escaped.
CONTROLLER He will be recaptured, I swear it. DALEK He must be found and destroyed. CONTROLLER He will attempt to return to his own time zone. If those guerillas are helping him, they will use the tunnel, and I am setting up an ambush. DALEK If you fail us again,
you
will pay with your life. This is your final chance.
CONTROLLER I will go and supervise the operations myself.
Control room CONTROLLER Is everything ready? GUARD Security forces have covered the whole tunnel. Don't worry, they won't escape a second time. Future Auderly The Doctor and Jo are escorted by a troop of guerillas back to the manhole. Monia gives the Doctor one of their time machines. MONIA Now,
you
are sure
you
know how to use it?
DOCTOR It seems simple enough. Bit too simple for my liking. MONIA Right. We'll give you covering fire, just in case. DOCTOR Good. JO Take care.
Tunnel The Doctor and Jo set off, but are quickly caught by the Ogrons who were waiting for them. CONTROLLER So it has ended as I said it would. Did I not tell you it was madness to fight the Daleks? DOCTOR Is it madness to want to see a world free from their rule? CONTROLLER It can't be done. DOCTOR Oh yes, it can. And I can do it. Are
you
going to stop me?
CONTROLLER to Ogrons Go. I will deal with these criminals myself. I said go! The Ogrons leave. CONTROLLER If only I could be sure. DOCTOR
You
spoke of the war, of its years of suffering and starvation. Well, I can prevent all that happening, you know.
CONTROLLER
You
saved my life.
You
could have let them kill me. Go, quickly.
DOCTOR Thank you.
Jo
, come here and stand by me.
The Doctor operates the time machine. The whole thing has been witnessed by the sadistic Guard, hiding round a corner.
Railway bridge SOLDIER
Sergeant
! They're here!
Jo and the Doctor run out of the tunnel. BENTON This is Sergeant Benton calling UNIT HQ. Look, we've found them. Would you get a jeep over here pronto. This way,
Doctor
.
Dalek Control room CONTROLLER I am sorry. They were too quick for us. They escaped in the darkness. DALEK
You
are lying!
You
have betrayed the Daleks!
CONTROLLER No. I told you before. Those security guards are no match for humans. DALEK
You
are a traitor to the Daleks.
You
must be exterminated!
CONTROLLER Who knows? I may have helped to exterminate you. The gold Dalek fires, killing the Controller. The Guard comes forward. DALEK
You
have proved yourself worthy to be the new controller. But be warned, the Daleks demand total loyalty from those who serve them.
GUARD Of course. The Guard leaves. DALEK We must follow them into the twentieth century time zone. DALEK 2 The peace conference must be destroyed. War must break out. DALEK The Dalek conquest of the planet Earth must not be reversed.
Auderly The twenty four hour media have arrived outside the house and started broadcasting. MACINTOSH Here in the peaceful heart of England will soon take place what could be described as the most important summit conference of this century. The peaceful atmosphere of this Georgian house gives little indication of the underlying tension of the occasion. A desperate, last minute attempt to stem the rising tide of international tension that seems to be moving the great powers towards the brink of a third world war. Arriving now is Sir Reginald Styles, who with his team of government aides, has been working around the clock to make this meeting possible. Sir Reginald himself, has just returned from an eleventh hour meeting in Peking where his success in persuading the Chinese leaders to reconsider their walk out gave the first real chance of success to these talks. Talks, on which may well depend, the fate of the entire world. Various nationalities get out of cars and go into the house. Hallway STYLES Everything set up,
Brigadier
?
BRIGADIER Yes,
sir
. Although I still feel
STYLES We won't waste time on the formalities. We'll just get on with the business as soon as possible. The Doctor and Jo drive up to the house and run inside. The guards snap to attention for the Doctor. STYLES Look,
you
're supposed to be in charge of security. Kindly get on with your job and leave me to get on with mine.
DOCTOR
Brigadier
!
Brigadier
, get everybody out of this house at once.
BRIGADIER Where the devil have
you
been?
DOCTOR Never mind all that, just clear this house immediately. STYLES What's the man talking about? JO Do as he says! Look, there isn't much time! Ogrons and the Daleks come out of the tunnel under the railway bridge and go along the towpath, where they make quick work of the UNIT soldiers there. DOCTOR Look, try and use your intelligence,
man
, even if you are a politician.
STYLES
Brigadier
, if
you
can't get this lunatic out of my way
BRIGADIER I know it all sounds incredible,
sir
, but the Doctor usually knows what he's talking about.
STYLES Arranging this conference was an almost impossible task. It is no exaggeration to say that the peace of the world depends on its success. I will not jeopardise that success now! DOCTOR
Brigadier
, get this man and all the delegates out of this area immediately. Use force if
you
have to!
Jo
,
you
stay here.
The Doctor leaves. BRIGADIER
Sir Reginald
, please?
STYLES No, I will not permit it!
Cellar DOCTOR
Shura
!
SHURA Get out of here unless
you
want to die too. I must kill Styles to prevent the war.
DOCTOR
Shura
, listen to me. Styles and all the delegates are already leaving this house.
You
detonate that bomb and
you
'll be sacrificing yourself for nothing.

can.

You
will please consider yourself under my orders.

you
BRIGADIER Now be quiet,

YATES
Sir

BRIGADIER Get Sir Reginald and all the delegates away from this area at once. Use the front exit. STYLES I absolutely refuse! YATES
Sir Reginald
, please.
STYLES But my papers, the documents. AIDE They're all here,
sir

STYLES Well, I suppose I shall have to agree, but under protest! YATES This way,
Sir Reginald

Jo goes into the study. Outside, UNIT troops are falling back under the alien onslaught. Mortars prove to be more effective weapons than gunfire. Out the front the delegates return to their cars and drive away, the Russians first, closely followed by the USA. The Daleks have made it to the terrace, and one enters the French windows.
Cellar JO
Doctor
! The Daleks, they're coming into the house!
SHURA Daleks?
You
're lying!
DOCTOR No,
she
's not. They've come back to make sure that their version of history isn't changed. Is everybody out of the house?
JO Yes, everyone but us. SHURA Get out of here. Let them come in! Leave them to me! JO No, no!
You
must come with us!
SHURA
You
don't understand! That's Dalekanium. It's the only thing that's effective against the Daleks.
DOCTOR Couldn't we set a time fuse? SHURA This stuff's too unstable. There just isn't time. This is something that I must do myself. Now get out! DOCTOR Very well. SHURA Out!
Outside Auderly House BRIGADIER Greyhound to Trap One. Greyhound to Trap One. Do you read me? Over. Greyhound to DOCTOR Tell your men to fall back. Let the Daleks into the house. BRIGADIER
Doctor
, are
you
sure that
DOCTOR It may not make military sense but it's the only way. BRIGADIER All right. Brigadier to all units. Let them pass! I say again, let them pass! Re-group on the main road. Out!
Hallway DALEK 3 Where are the delegates? DALEK 2 Where is the man Styles? DALEK 3 They must be found and exterminated. Cellar SHURA Oh no, not this time. This time it's going to be different. Shura triggers the bomb. Auderly The house goes KaBOOM, leaving just a big cloud of debris and a few walls. STYLES What happened? DOCTOR Your conference has been saved,
Sir Reginald
. Now it's up to
you
and your friends to make sure it's a success.
You
still have a choice.
STYLES Don't worry. We all know what will happen if we fail. DOCTOR So do we. We've seen it happen, haven't we,
Jo
?
