Doctor Who script
Doctor Who (2015)
Synopsis: Doctor Who is a British science-fiction television programme produced by the BBC since 1963. The programme depicts the adventures of a Time Lord called "The Doctor", an extraterrestrial being from the planet Gallifrey. He explores the universe in a time-travelling space ship called the TARDIS. Its exterior appears as a blue British police box, which was a common sight in Britain in 1963 when the series first aired. Accompanied by a number of companions, the Doctor combats a variety of foes, while working to save civilisations and help people in need.

I may be rounding up.

8 INT. EXOTIC BUILDING - DAY 8

Close on THE DOCTOR, staring, narrowing his eyes, squinting

at something.

THE DOCTOR's POV. A flicker of distortion speeds along a

wall, as if something not quite visible is moving rapidly

past it.

MISSY:

(V.O.)

Fifty invisible android assassins.

THE DOCTOR ducks, dives, rolls out of sight.

MISSY (cont’d)

(V.O.)

Fifty invisible indestructible,

android assassins. All exclusively

programmed to kill him.

THE DOCTOR's head pops over a low wall, ducks out of sight

again

-just as dozens of energy beams blast into the pillar behind

him.

MISSY (cont’d)

(V.O.)

State of the art disintegrators,

100 percent regeneration proof.

Hilarious in a crowded place, ideal

if you don’t like queuing.

CUT TO:

9 EXT. SKARO - DAY 9

CLARA, hanging there, watching MISSY's stick sharpening, in

increasing apprehension.

CLARA:

... why are you sharpening that

stick?

MISSY:

No idea how long we’ll be stuck out

here, I might have to go hunting.

CLARA:

Okay, so why am I tied up?

MISSY:

In case there’s nothing to hunt.

(Winks at her, smacks her

lips)

The Doctor then!
