Dave-El here and welcome to I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You, the blog with more cleaning power for that extra shine!
It's that day between Friday and Sunday that is mistakenly referred to as "Saturday". But we know it's really DOCTOR WHO SATURDAY!* Yes, Doctor Who Saturday is your oasis in the desert between the end of Series 7 and the 50th Anniversary Special in November.
*Yes, I know today is Sunday. Sorry.
Today, we are up to Part 11 of The Nemesis Who Stole Time.
Before we can get to that, let's look at....
The Doctor's regenerations are reversing. So far he's reversed back to Doctor #5. Which would be disconcerting in and of itself but there's trouble brewing. Big, BIG trouble.
There's a dark and terrible force known as The Great Negation that's eating the universe. The Doctor's long-time foe The Master thought he was controlling that force in yet another bid to rule everything. But the real power behind The Master was a mystery villain known only as The One who we have learned is a time controlling Super-Dalek. And where you find one Dalek, you'll find...let me count, 1...2...3...a kajillion!
11th Doctor: We must do this terrible thing. Or else…
Meanwhile, the Doctor keeps…changing. I’ve seen the TARDIS archives. As a Time Lord, the Doctor can regenerate his body. For some reason, the Doctor keeps shifting through various forms from his past yet he seems unaware of the change. I wonder..
Scene change: a chamber or hallway of a very large, very old house with stone walls and marble columns. It is the place where the 5th Doctor materialized at the end of the last episode. It is dimly lit and at the moment, there is no movement.
Scrambling to stay ahead of the pursuing Daleks is the 5th Doctor.
5th Doctor (breathless, pausing briefly behind a column): There are, I’m sure, better ways to get in my daily exercise!”
Scene change: the tentacled form of The One, also known as the Supreme Dalek Commander of Time, directs the actions of the Daleks.
The One: It is the Doctor...in his 5th incarnation. It is...of no consequence. The victory of the Daleks....MY victory...has already been won. There is...no more need...of the Doctor. DALEKS! DESTROY...THE DOCTOR!
Daleks: We obey.
Scene shift back to the interior of the stone house. The Daleks continue to their pursuit and their threats.
Another ray blast shoots out as the Doctor runs from behind the column to hide by a section of stone wall.The 5th Doctor looks around a corner; he spots the TARDIS but it’s surrounded by Weeping Angels. Their frozen faces are masks of rage and hate and looking in the Doctor’s direction.
Dalek: The Doctor has been located! The Doctor must be destroyed!
5th Doctor: Daleks to the left of me, Angels to the right and here I am, stuck in the middle with…well, nothing really. Only the most absurd stroke of luck can save me now.
"The Doctor’s escape has been neutralized!
You are the enemy of the Daleks!
You are the Destroyer of Worlds!
You must pay for your crimes against the Daleks!
The Doctor’s TARDIS has returned!
4th Doctor (grinning broadly): Hello!
The 5th Doctor looks confused for a moment, then elated.
5th Doctor: Amy! I remember my…future? Futures? Sorting real from alternate is rather…
5th Doctor: No, Clara, I can’t. And I'm very sorry but...
The 5th Doctor looks about him, very distressed as more cracks form in the console walls with each successful blast from the Daleks outside.
5th Doctor: The TARDIS…is dead.
Next time: The End of All Things.
