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.

MISSY:

(V.O.)

Surrounded!

11 EXT. SKARO - DAY 11

MISSY, inspecting the sharpened end of her stick.

MISSY:

Outnumbered. Outgunned.

CUT TO:

INT. EXOTIC BUILDING - DAY 12

On the freeze-frame Doctor. A building whine

-and all the invisible guns circling him, start firing.

Still in ultra-slow motion visible energy beams from the

invisible guns, and start converging, sluggishly, on THE

DOCTOR.

MISSY:

(V.O.)

Nanoseconds to live. Four, I’d say,

being generous.

EXT. SKARO - DAY 13

MISSY, now swishing her stick around.

MISSY:

Now, even if the Doctor, by some

miracle, survives the blast, that

won’t save him. The androids are

indestructible, immortal,

unstoppable. They’ll just keep on

killing him until they think he’s

dead enough.

Rounds on CLARA, marches up to her. Stands there, slapping

the stick against the palm of her other hand.

MISSY (cont’d)

My question is this. How did he

survive?

On CLARA, watching the slapping stick, getting the

uncomfortable feeling she’s talking to avoiding being lunch!

MISSY (cont’d)

Come on, Clara! You know him.

Consider the Doctor.

Close on CLARA, thinking frantically!

CUT TO:

14 INT. EXOTIC BUILDING - DAY 14

On the frozen DOCTOR, surrounded by the frozen energy beams

converging on him

-pulling out to reveal CLARA hanging upside down in the

foreground, staring at him (she’s picturing the scenario.)

How did he escape?

Close on the frozen DOCTOR. Impossibly (in CLARA's

imagination) he turns to look at CLARA, grins, winks at her.
