Today is Sunday which is Doctor Who Day here at the old blog thing. After taking a week off, my new fan-fiction script is back.
But first, here are links to...
And a couple of comments on the story thus far:
Yes, our antagonist is Mr. Clever, the mash up of the 11th Doctor and the Cyber Planner for the episode Nightmare In Silver. Now you might say, "But wasn't Mr. Clever just a manifestation in the Doctor's head when the Cybermites invaded his body? And once the Doctor expelled the Cyber Planner, that should've been it for ol' Mr. Clever, right?
You're right: it should've been. All will be made clear on what exactly is this Mr. Clever's actual deal.
In Episode Two, I have the 12th Doctor leading River away with the quip, "Move along, Pond." Yes, I know that was what the 11th Doctor said to Amy but I thought it was kind of cool to have the 12th Doctor say it to River as a passing acknowledgement of River's parentage. Of course, this Doctor does have trouble telling humans apart sometimes so maybe he really confused River and Amy. Although given what's going on back Darillium, God, I hope not.
Moving forward now. And look! Here's the disclaimer.
And now let's get this party started with...
Scene changes: an extreme close up a pair of eyes, open wide and frantic.
RIVER: You wouldn't have a chance, and neither do I. I'm timing it for the end of the countdown. There'll be a blip in the command flow. That way it should improve our chances of a clean download.
DOCTOR: River, please. No.
RIVER: Funny thing is, this means you've always known how I was going to die. All the time we've been together, you knew I was coming here. The last time I saw you, the real you, the future you, I mean, you turned up on my doorstep, with a new haircut and a suit. You took me to Darillium to see the Singing Towers. What a night that was. The Towers sang, and you cried.
COMPUTER: Auto-destruct in one minute.
RIVER: You wouldn't tell me why, but I suppose you knew it was time. My time. Time to come to the library. You even gave me your screwdriver. That should have been a clue.
(The two screwdrivers and her diary are just out of the Doctor's reach.)
RIVER: There's nothing you can do.
DOCTOR: You can let me do this.
RIVER: If you die here, it'll mean I've never met you.
DOCTOR: Time can be rewritten.
RIVER: Not those times. Not one line. Don't you dare. It's okay. It's okay. It's not over for you. You'll see me again. You've got all of that to come. You and me, time and space. You watch us run.
DOCTOR: River, you know my name.
COMPUTER: Auto-destruct in ten
DOCTOR: You whispered my name in my ear.
COMPUTER: Nine, eight, seven
DOCTOR: There's only one reason I would ever tell anyone my name. There's only one time I could.
RIVER: Hush, now.
COMPUTER Four, three
COMPUTER: Two, one
(River joins two power cables together, and there is a blinding light.)
Mr. Clever's voice: You didn't listen to me before and look where it got you.
Our view shifts as we see Mr. Clever lean down next to the distraught Cyber Leader.
The sequence with the 10th Doctor and River was written by Steven Moffat (of course) from the Series 4 episode Forest of the Dead.
