Episode 7 - The Crack in Time
SCENE 1: TARDIS
The Doctor and Sam are in the TARDIS. They are standing around the console listening to a bit of music on the radio. Suddenly the phone rings, The Doctor picks up the phone and answers it.
DOCTOR: Hello, This is The Doctor, who is this?
SARAH JANE: Doctor, It’s me Sarah, look I need your help there have been disappearances going on and the Government thinks its Aliens. I didn’t know what to do so I thought I would call you.
DOCTOR: What kind of disappearances, what makes them any different to any other disappearances?
SARAH JANE: Well they found a spaceship and took it into storage, and there was no Alien inside.
DOCTOR: Right... Well I’m coming to pick you up
The Doctor hangs up and flicks a few switches.
SCENE 2: SARAH JANE’S HOUSE
The TARDIS lands outside a house. The Doctor steps out and knocks on the door. A woman answers the door.
DOCTOR: Hello Sarah Jane.
He grins at her she grins back
SARAH JANE: Doctor!
DOCTOR: And K9! Hello Old Boy
DOCTOR: Long time no see hey Sarah anyway you need my help. Now you being a journalist I would have thought you would have been able to find out something about these disappearances?
SARAH JANE: Well me and Mr. Smith have been keeping an eye on the news and well it seems that it is Extra Terrestrial. Hang on let me get my coat.
DOCTOR: Well hold on, Sam
Sam Steps out of the TARDIS
SARAH JANE: Hello, I’m Sarah Jane Smith, I’m a journalist and you must be Sam
SAM: “Hello, Yes I’m Sam, So how do you know The Doctor?”
SARAH JANE: Well I used to be like you, I travelled with The Doctor for a while. Anyway I spose I should tell you a bit about these disappearances.
They Start walking along
DOCTOR: Come along K9
K9: Affirmative Master
SARAH JANE: Well it all started about 2 weeks ago when a spaceship crashed. The government covered it up saying that it was a missile that was set off, but there were no remains of a bomb. When they broke into the spaceship they found no Alien inside, so they figured that it was an Alien that was taking people. And I think they were right, Mr. Smith picked up an alien trace from the crash site. But he couldn’t figure out what species it was
DOCTOR: Well I wonder what it is
SARAH JANE: Well Mr. Smith did find where it came from. Two weeks ago when the spaceship crashed a crack was seen but it was only open for about 10 minutes then it closed. The spaceship must have fallen through the crack and crashed.
DOCTOR: “Ah, Right, well I can’t get into Torchwood to see the spaceship as I’m not allowed in and I can’t get to the crash site as it’s fully guarded but I spose we can try and find this Alien.”
DOCTOR: Now then if I were on the run where would I hide?”
Doctor pulls out Sonic Screwdriver and Sarah pulls out Sonic Lipstick.
DOCTOR: “Hah, that’s the Sonic Lipstick I gave you, you still have it.”
SAM: “Well Doctor, I’d say that’s much more a ladies thing and its more compact.”
DOCTOR: “Yeah, right Sarah you go that way, Sam you come with me. If you see the Alien Sarah ring Sam and well come to you and I’ll do the same.”
The Doctor and Sam walk off. Sarah goes in the other direction. Sarah picks up a signal on the Sonic Lipstick, she walks in the direction that it’s coming from. They come across a man in a leather jacket, jeans and a t-shirt. She points the Sonic Lipstick at him, it beeps franticly.
K9: Danger Mistress, Energy Fluctuation in close proximity
She puts it back into her pocket.
SARAH JANE: Where K9?
K9: Ahead Mistress, the male in front of us is not Human in origin
She turns to the alien
SARAH JANE: So then you’re the alien that escaped that spaceship that crashed, what do you want?
The Doctor rushes round the corner
DOCTOR:Any Luck Sarah??
K9: The male in front is not human in origin Master
DOCTOR: Right so you’re telling me this is the alien, well if that’s the case then nice disguise what are you a Slitheen, no to skinny. Krillitane, no you’re not, so what and who are you?”
He scans the alien with the sonic screwdriver
DOCTOR: “Ah, you’re a robot, where do you come from? And why on earth did you land here”
ALIEN: “I am known as NQ2 RT4, I come from the planet Mercury. I came to Earth on a mission to find Earthlings to work at our space base. The prisoners I captured resisted against me, they were hostile elements and had to be destroyed.”
DOCTOR: “What, you can’t just come to Earth, steal people and then kill them when they try to run away. What you’re doing is against Galactic Law and if the Shadow Proclamation find out you’ll be executed. I suggest that you leave this planet while you can, or you’ll have me to worry about and believe me you don’t want that to happen.
ALIEN: “I can’t get back home my ship crashed and all the systems went down. My auxillary power is running low and there is no chance of repairing the ship.”
SARAH JANE: “Well Doctor what do we do, you could take him back home in the TARDIS or I could get Mr. Smith to teleport him to his home planet”
DOCTOR: “Well on his neck is a teleport. If I re-calibrate with the sonic we should be able to send him back. But if that fails ill take him back in the TARDIS, Come on everyone back to the TARDIS.”
They all walk back to the TARDIS. The Doctor re-calibrates and sets the co-ordinates on the teleport.
ALIEN: “You are a hostile element you will be destroyed.”
K9: Maximum Defence Mode initiated
DOCTOR: “Woah, easy come on I'm trying to help.”
The Doctor sonics the robot and it shuts down
SAM: “Well that was close, whats going on he wanted the help didnt he.”
DOCTOR: “Well something triggered him off but we cant have him acting like that”
The Doctor presses the sonic and the robot wakes up
DOCTOR: “Right then NQ2 RT4, the co-ordinates have been set and it should work. When you get back don’t come to Earth anymore or I will have to report you to the Shadow Proclamation. Good luck.”
NQ2 RT4 presses the teleport and he disappears
SAM: “Well that’s another alien sorted out.”
The Doctor looks at Sarah
DOCTOR: “Thank you Sarah. How are Luke, Ranni and Clyde?”
SARAH JANE: “They’re fine, they've gone on a school trip to the US.
DOCTOR: Ah well that’s nice, next time you see then send them my love. Remember if you ever need me just give me a call.
SARAH JANE: I will Doctor and thank you.
DOCTOR: Goodbye old friend, Keep sarah safe
K9: This unit will protect Mistress Sarah Master
DOCTOR: You good dog
The Doctor gives Sarah a hug. She walks away as the TARDIS de-materialises.
