Here are the links to the last 5 episodes of my current fan fiction serial script.
And now the disclaimer.
And off we go!
Scene opens: from space, a green ray strikes the planet Xanxanar below.
Scene change: the Doctor on the bridge of the Mire ship. The Doctor’s talking and weaving around the lumbering around the bridge as we saw last episode.
Toby (VO): But it's so, so much more!
The Doctor hurls himself inside through the front door, quickly shuts the door and leans against it, breathing hard. 28 year old Toby runs from the console to the Doctor to help steady him.
Scene change: Interior of the TARDIS with the Doctor and Toby 28.
The Doctor: I'd imagine so. The chronovirus in the time cannon and the one inside your body were farther apart.
Scene change: Living room
Toby: Another pair of sonic sunglasses?
The Doctor: I got a whole box of 'em through Amazon. A-ha!
Toby: A-ha... what?
The Doctor: Right! Work to do! First of all I need an 8-track tape deck or its nearest Xanxanar equivalent!
Scene change: the green beam striking the surface of the planet and changing living things into dead things.
Toby (VO): The Doctor predicted the time cannon would burn itself out but it hadn't so far as it continued to reduce this world to ruin.
Scene change: Elsewhere on the planet, hordes of the Mire continue to rampage through the populace.
Toby (VO): Meanwhile the Mire soldiers continued to attack the people of Xanxanar.
Our focus shifts to one group of people, a family with children. We watch as a group of the Mire bear down upon them as the people cower in fear.
Toby (VO): The Mire were ruthless, relentless and it seemed nothing was going to stop them.
Toby 28 (VO): Hey, you!
The Mire stop their advance on the terrorized family and turn.
Toby (VO): That is, until...
Toby 28 (VO): Yeah, I'm talking to you!
Our view shifts as we see younger Toby standing alone, one hand outstretched towards the Mire and the other behind his back.
Toby 28: Yeah, you stupid, bumbling bucket heads! Leave those people alone!
The Mire start to advance towards Toby 28.
Toby 28: Yeah, that's right! I'm calling you out! Maybe...
The Mire are closer still but our view shifts to the hand behind Toby's back which is holding a strange device.
Toby 28: You need to pick on somebody...
The Mire are getting threatening close to Toby 28 now but then Toby pushes a big button on the device.
Toby 28: ...your own size.
Within perhaps barely an inch of Toby 28, the Mire stop, take a step back, take a look at each other. Then one of the Mire slugs another one with a mighty upper cut punch, sending the 2nd Mire flying. Another pair slug each other the same way.
Toby 28 (excited): OH YEAH!
Our view expands as we see elsewhere, the Mire are now fighting with each other.
Toby 28: Rock 'em, Sock 'em Aliens! That's what I'm talking about!
Toby 28 looks up to the sky. The green death ray coming down from beyond the sky is sputtering now, growing dimmer and less coherent.
Toby 28: Time to bring it in for a landing, Doctor.
The Doctor: No, not your power and it never was. Weapon like a time cannon, way out of your league, as I said before. Let me guess, a black market pick up from someone scrounging old Dalek battlefields?
Sally hugs Katy, looks at Toby over Katy's shoulder with a wink and a smile.
The Doctor awkwardly gets up from the swing.
The Doctor: Toby, your mother... was a very wise and insightful woman.
Toby: Yes, I know. I miss her... every day.
The Doctor: And I am an old man. A very, very, very old man and ever so foolish.
Toby: So...you keep your secrets then?
The Doctor: It's what old, foolish men do.
Toby: I see.
There is silence between the two men as the evening grows darker. The Doctor sighs and gestures towards the TARDIS.
The Doctor: Care for a quick spin through time and/or space?
Toby: Nah. Not this year, if you don't mind. I think I need some quality time with my wife.
The Doctor: Of course.
The Doctor wanders over to the TARDIS and opens the door as Toby turns towards his home. Then Toby stops at the backdoor and turns towards the Doctor.
The Doctor turns in Toby's direction.
The Doctor: Hmmm?
Toby: Stay safe, Doctor!
The Doctor nods towards Toby.
The Doctor: Stay well, Toby.
Toby smiles and he disappears into the house. The Doctor enters the TARDIS. The light on top begins to glow.
And the TARDIS vanishes as night falls.
Toby asks the Doctor for a special trip back in time to a special day in his past. What is.... The Day Everything Changes?
Next week..... Episode Seven of Lifetime Companion
Meanwhile a new blog on something or another will be up tomorrow. Until then, remember to be good to one another.
