1: INT. CHASM

(ANTODUS spins on the end of the rope in the chasm…)

ANTODUS: (Hysterical.) I can't hold on! I can't hold on!


2: INT. TUNNEL

(IAN'S grip on the rock is reduced to his fingers only as the weight of ANTODUS pulls him nearer the edge.)

THE RESCUE

(His grip starts to slip.)

Written by

TERRY NATION

(GANATUS appears from around the cleft and tries to grab at IAN'S sleeve.)

GANATUS: I daren’t let go with my other hand.
IAN: (Shouts.) Antodus! Get a grip on the rock-face. Take the weight off the rope!


3: INT. CHASM

ANTODUS: It’s too…smooth!


4: INT. TUNNEL

IAN: Stop it, you fool!
GANATUS: (To IAN.) I’m losing you!

(GANATUS manages to grab hold of one of IAN'S hands, rather than his sleeve.)

IAN: Sweat on my hands…
GANATUS: It…it’s no good, Ian!
IAN: Call the others!
GANATUS: (Shouts.) Kristas!
IAN: (Shouts.) Kristas!
GANATUS: (Shouts.) Kristas!


5: INT. CHASM

(Still hanging in the chasm, ANTODUS has pulled out his knife and is sawing at the rope. The threads part one by one and, when the rope breaks, he falls into the darkness with a scream…)


6: INT. TUNNEL

(As his weight is lost, IAN pulls himself onto the ledge. He and GANATUS hear the fast receding scream and the sound of him hitting the water below.)

GANATUS: (Shocked.) Antodus!

(IAN pulls up the rope and see the cut and frayed end. The two men are too stunned to say anything.)


7: INT. CITY. OPERATIONS ROOM

(The DALEKS are in a large operations room. Round the walls are several pieces of scientific equipment and control consoles. DALEKS man the controls as they prepare their operation. In a central alcove is the ejector capsule itself - a large upright piece of machinery. In a small alcove on the left-hand side of the room, the DOCTOR and SUSAN are held by their wrists and ankles to a wall by magnetic manacles. The DOCTOR and SUSAN are desperately trying to talk the DALEKS out of carrying out their plan.)

DOCTOR: You could live in the city, and the others could…
SUSAN: There’s room for both of you…
FIRST DALEK: (Interrupting.) What we need for life means death to the Thals!
DOCTOR: But why do you have to destroy? Can’t you use your brains to try…
FIRST DALEK: (Interrupting.) Only one race can survive!
DOCTOR: What are you planning?
FIRST DALEK: We wish to escape captivity.

(It turns and glides away.)

FIRST DALEK: Go out and rebuild the planet Skaro. Our oxygen distributors will be subjected to waste radiation by the ejector capsule.
DOCTOR: Nothing can live outside if you do that! Nothing!
FIRST DALEK: Except the Daleks.
DOCTOR: When do you intend to put this into operation?
FIRST DALEK: Now.

(It turns to another DALEK and plucks a circuit board from its suction cup arm. It then glides over to one of the pieces of equipment nearby.)

DOCTOR: This senseless, evil killing!


8: INT. TUNNEL

(The survivors of the party sit on the floor of the tunnel, dejected and grubby with dirt as KRISTAS walks towards them having checked ahead.)

KRISTAS: There’s been a fall of rock. The way is blocked.
IAN: Did you look all round it?
KRISTAS: Yes. There's no way through.
GANATUS: Then we’ll have to go back. We came this far. We’ve done our best…more. First Elyon died and…now my brother…for what? (Bitterly.) Can’t you see there isn’t any sense in it anymore!
BARBARA: We can’t give up now.
GANATUS: (Bitterly) What is it that you want us to do?
IAN: We must go back and…find another way.
GANATUS: Oh, why don’t we just give up?
IAN: Because your brother died, for one thing. He gave us a chance.
GANATUS: (Angrily.) My brother didn’t want us to come! He said we’d all die!

(There is a moment of silence. Suddenly the light from the firebox starts to go low. KRISTAS investigates it.)

BARBARA: What’s the matter with it?
KRISTAS: I don’t know. Dirt’s got into it, I expect. (To IAN.) Well, if we’re going back, we’ll have to go back now. We can’t cross the chasm without light.
BARBARA: Well, we still have the torch.
KRISTAS: That’s weak too.

(IAN gestures to the firebox.)

IAN: Can you use it sparingly?
KRISTAS: Yeah...
IAN: Well, turn it off, Kristas.

(KRISTAS turns off the firebox. The tunnel should descend into darkness…but there is a faint light.)

KRISTAS: Right.
IAN: Wait a minute…

(He gets to his feet.)

IAN: There’s a light coming in here. Where’s it coming from? (Excited.) Where’s the light coming from?

(The whole group has followed IAN'S lead in getting to their feet. They too, look for the light source. IAN clambers up some rocks at the back of the tunnel. The others follow.)

IAN: Here, Give me a hand!

(He climbs slightly upwards to the light source - a small gap filled with rocks. He starts pulling the rocks out.)

BARBARA: Can you see anything?
GANATUS: What is it?


9: INT. CITY. ROOM

(IAN pulls the rocks away. He sees a room with a curved roof filled with pipes and other machinery that resembles turbines.)

IAN: (Jubilantly.) We’re through! Must have been travelling under the pipes all the time - we’re through!


10: EXT. FOREST

(The other Thals are gathered at the edge of the forest, looking at the city.)

DYONI: Alydon?

(She walks up to ALYDON.)

DYONI: The antenna hasn’t moved for some time.
ALYDON: No. The Doctor must have succeeded in putting it out of action.
DYONI: But why haven’t they returned?
ALYDON: The Daleks must have captured them.

(DYONI bows her head in sorrow. ALYDON puts a comforting hand on her, then addresses his people.)

ALYDON: Now, listen everybody. The way to the city is clear. Now is the time to attack!

(He picks up a stone branch.)

ALYDON: We may be farmers, but have we forgotten how to fight?

(The other Thal men are prepared with branches as weapons. One of them has a metal claw from the Magnedon creature.)


11: INT. CITY. OPERATIONS ROOM

(The DALEKS continue their preparations.)

FIRST DALEK: Power down to half.
SECOND DALEK: Down to half.
FIRST DALEK: Seal off nuclear waste disposer.
SECOND DALEK: Sealing complete.
FIRST DALEK: Begin radiation redirection to distribution capsule.

(The DOCTOR and SUSAN see this from their alcove.)

SUSAN: Can't we stop them? Can't we do anything?

(The DOCTOR calls out to the DALEKS.)

DOCTOR: Just a moment! I haven’t told you how we came to this planet.

(The FIRST DALEK replies but does not turn round to face the DOCTOR.)

FIRST DALEK: It does not matter now.
DOCTOR: But…but it does! I have a ship capable of crossing the barriers of space and time. Surely this would be invaluable to you?

(Now interested, the DALEK turns to the DOCTOR.)

FIRST DALEK: A ship? What do you mean?
DOCTOR: A Machine.
FIRST DALEK: I do not believe you.
DOCTOR: But I have!
SUSAN: It's true! We have!

(The DALEK turns away.)

FIRST DALEK: You are not capable of creating such a machine.
DOCTOR: You took a part of my ship away from one of my companions - the young man.

(The DALEK turns back to face them.)

FIRST DALEK: What did it look like?
DOCTOR: A small rod with metal at either end. It belongs to my ship. A fluid link containing mercury. Examine it for yourselves. You will see it’s part of a complicated machine.

(The DALEK glides to a nearby console where the fluid link rests on top.)

FIRST DALEK: Yes, I have it here.
DOCTOR: Well, let me show you the ship, explain it to you, help you to build another.
FIRST DALEK: A bargain for your lives?
DOCTOR: Yes
FIRST DALEK: Where is this machine?
DOCTOR: In the petrified forest outside the city.
FIRST DALEK: Good. When the neutron operation has been completed, we will find a way to travel outside the city limits.
DOCTOR: No!
FIRST DALEK: We will examine your machine.
DOCTOR: No! Not unless you stop what you’re doing. Otherwise, I won’t explain its secrets to you and its philosophy of movement.

(The DALEK glides away.)

FIRST DALEK: Now that we know of the machine, we can examine it for ourselves.
DOCTOR: But you can’t operate it without me!
FIRST DALEK: Every problem has a solution.

(The DOCTOR looks appalled at the failure of his attempt. The DALEK receives an intercom message.)

DALEK: (OOV: Over tannoy.) Vibration locator records movement inside the city wall.

(The FIRST DALEK spins round.)

FIRST DALEK: Details!
DALEK: (OOV: Over tannoy.) Disturbance is too great.

(The FIRST DALEK glides quickly across the room.)

FIRST DALEK: Alert Daleks in section one! The Thals are entering the city!

(The DOCTOR and SUSAN hear this. A look of relief appears on SUSAN’S face.)

SUSAN: Grandfather, they’re coming!
DOCTOR: But can they get here in time?


12: INT. CITY. CORRIDOR

(IAN and his party move slowly, crouching, down the low slanted corridors. IAN signals to the others to follow him. They stop to get their bearings.)

IAN: Now where are we?
BARBARA: I have no idea. I have some experience of these corridors, they all look alike.
IAN: Yes. We could go back to the lift, but…get back!

(They jump into hiding as a DALEK glides up the corridor. It stops to listen to an intercom announcement.)

DALEK: (OOV: Over tannoy.) Alert! The Thals are entering the city! All Daleks in section one to level one. Immediate! Immediate!

(With the end of the announcement, the DALEK glides on. IAN and the others come out of hiding.)

IAN: Alydon and the Thals must be in the city. We must find the control room.

(He crosses the corridor, checks that all is clear behind him, then beckons the others to cross.)


13: INT. CITY. OPERATIONS ROOM

(Another intercom message is received as the DALEKS look at a flickering monitor screen.)

DALEK: (OOV: Over tannoy.) Interior videoscopes are recording movements on level eight!
SUSAN: Grandfather, look! Look, they've found a way through!

(IAN and his party are seen on a screen.)

SECOND DALEK: All Daleks on level eight, urgent!

(IAN is seen to spot the camera, he swings at it with his torch and the screen goes blank.)

FIRST DALEK: The Thals have penetrated to level eight!

(It glides furiously across the room in a panic.)

FIRST DALEK: Immediate action! Immediate action!
SECOND DALEK: How did they get into the city?

(A THIRD DALEK is by the ejector capsule.)

THIRD DALEK: Capsule ready to go critical!
FIRST DALEK: Stand by!
THIRD DALEK: Standing by. Ready.
FIRST DALEK: The last stage of the operation is about to begin.
DOCTOR: Stop it, please!
FIRST DALEK: Nothing can stop the Daleks! Begin countdown - One hundred!
THIRD DALEK: Beginning now.


14: INT. CITY. CORRIDOR

(IAN’S group reaches an intersection. IAN holds his torch out round a corner…and a stone branch crashes across it. ALYDON lunges into view, ready to strike again. He pulls himself up short when he sees who it is.)

GANATUS: It’s Alydon!
ALYDON: Ganatus! Well, have...have you found the Doctor?
BARBARA: Well, isn’t he with you?
ALYDON: No, he must have been captured by the Daleks…and Susan.

(IAN and BARBARA look at each other in horror.)

IAN: But...the Daleks know you and the Thals are in the city.
ALYDON: We spilt into groups, but without the Doctor we didn’t know what to look for.
IAN: We must find that control room!
BARBARA: (Correcting him.) We must find the Doctor and Susan!
IAN: Barbara, first and foremost, we must find the control room and knock it out.

(The Thals have been talking quietly during this discussion and ALYDON is learning of the death of ANTODUS.)

ALYDON: And Antodus?
GANATUS: Yes, he died bravely.

(ALYDON nods solemnly. A DALEK suddenly comes over the intercom.)

FIRST DALEK: (OOV: Over tannoy.) Daleks group to control room - immediately. All Daleks to level ten.
ALYDON: Well, this is level nine - we must be near!
KRISTAS: We’ve got to go on.

(BARBARA points down the corridor.)

BARBARA: There’s a lift back there. It’s only one floor up.
FIRST DALEK: (OOV: Over tannoy.) All Daleks to level ten immediately!
SECOND DALEK: (OOV: Over tannoy.) Corridor intersections on all levels other than ten will be sealed now!

(One of the doors suddenly starts to slide down.)

IAN: Kristas!

(The three Thals dive for the door but they are too late. IAN sees another starting to close.)

IAN: Get that one!

(But again they are too slow. The party stand confused, waiting for the next move.)

ALYDON: Where?

(A third starts to close.)

IAN: Help!

(They rush for the third door before they are trapped and try and hold it up whilst BARBARA crawls underneath it.)

BARBARA: There's another one!

(She rushes off further down the corridor. ALYDON has managed to crawl under the first door.)

ALYDON: Quickly Barbara, get to it!

(GANATUS crawls through next. He looks down the corridor.)

GANATUS: Barbara!


15: INT. CITY. OPERATIONS ROOM

(The DALEKS continue their work at the capsule...)

THIRD DALEK: Fifty-two…
FIRST DALEK: The Thals are blocking the intersections from sealing on level nine!
THIRD DALEK: Fifty-one…fifty…
FOURTH DALEK: Increase power! Emergency! Increase power!
THIRD DALEK: Forty-nine…forty-eight…


16: INT. CITY. CORRIDOR

(BARBARA is pinned under the third door. The others, shouting, rush up.)

IAN: All right...
GANATUS: Quickly!
IAN: Wait a minute, I’ll take the strain...

(IAN backs to the door and tries to pull it up. ALYDON and KRISTAS help as GANATUS slides under.)

IAN: Barbara! Try and slide yourself out!
BARBARA: I can’t move!

(GANATUS is halfway through the door now but his face looks pained at the door crushes his back.)

GANATUS: They’re pressing down harder!
IAN: They’re increasing the pressure! Barbara, you must try and roll out, try and free yourself…
KRISTAS: Just get my...hands under...!

(With an effort, BARBARA manages to squeeze out from under the door.)

BARBARA: I'm through!
IAN: Alydon! Right! You go next!

(ALYDON rushes under the door.)


17: INT. CITY. OPERATIONS ROOM

THIRD DALEK: Forty-six…forty-five…Forty-four…

(A Thal enters the room from a side corridor and is exterminated.)

THIRD DALEK: Forty-three…forty-two…forty...


18: INT. CITY. CORRIDOR

(IAN is the last to try and get under the door. The others are trying to hold it open.)

GANATUS: Hurry, Ian! It's crushing like stone! Come on!

(IAN makes it from under the door.)

GANATUS: Right!

(They all let the door drop.)


19: INT. CITY. OPERATIONS ROOM

(A DALEK surveys the dead Thal that managed to penetrate the control room as the other DALEKS continue the countdown…)

THIRD DALEK: Forty…thirty-nine…thirty-eight…thirty-seven…

(The DOCTOR and SUSAN are still imprisoned in the alcove.)

THIRD DALEK: Thirty-six…thirty-five…thirty-four…thirty-three…

(IAN’S party appears in the corridor outside the operations room.)

THIRD DALEK: Thirty-two…thirty-one…


20: INT. CITY. CORRIDOR OUTSIDE OPERATIONS ROOM

(They jump into hiding as a DALEK glides down the corridor.)

THIRD DALEK: (OOV: Inside operations room.) Thirty…


21: INT. CITY. OPERATIONS ROOM

THIRD DALEK: Twenty-nine…twenty-eight…twenty-seven…

(The group stealthily makes their way towards the entrance to the operations room.)

THIRD DALEK: Twenty-six…

(Unseen by the DALEKS, IAN runs into the room and hides behind a central pillar.)

THIRD DALEK: Twenty-five…


22: INT. CITY. CORRIDOR OUTSIDE OPERATIONS ROOM

(GANATUS throws BARBARA his coil of rope.)


23: INT. CITY. OPERATIONS ROOM

THIRD DALEK: Twenty-four…

(A DALEK glide past IAN’S hiding place. After it has gone, ALYDON rushes over and joins IAN.)

THIRD DALEK: Twenty-three…twenty-two…twenty-one…twenty…

(From behind the pillar, IAN surveys the room and quickly spots the DOCTOR and SUSAN. He excitedly points them out to ALYDON. At the same time, SUSAN and the DOCTOR see their rescuers and react with excitement.)

THIRD DALEK: Nineteen…eighteen…seventeen…sixteen…fifteen…

(When the DALEKS are looking in the other direction, IAN and ALYDON run into the alcove and start to free the DOCTOR and SUSAN. BARBARA creates a diversion by throwing a rock at one of the DALEKS. It spins round and fires at her but she dives out of the way behind the doorway.)

THIRD DALEK: Fourteen…thirteen…
FIRST DALEK: Follow and kill her!

(A DALEK glides after her.)

THIRD DALEK: Twelve…eleven…ten…

(The DALEK glides out of the room…)


24: INT. CITY. CORRIDOR OUTSIDE OPERATIONS ROOM

(…and is immediately set upon by the Thals with ropes to pull its arm and gun up.)

DALEK: Trapped! Help me! Trapped!


25: INT. CITY. OPERATIONS ROOM

(The DOCTOR and SUSAN have been set free but as they run from their alcove, the DOCTOR, weak after being manacled for so long, stumbles to the ground.)

THIRD DALEK: Nine…eight…seven…

(A DALEK approaches the escapees. IAN throws one of the manacles at it.)

THIRD DALEK: Six…

(GANATUS throws himself on top of one of the DALEKS. Another Thal is exterminated.)

THIRD DALEK: Five…four…

(The DOCTOR pulls SUSAN behind one of the pieces of machinery for safety. A DALEK glides towards them but IAN and ALYDON attack it. KRISTAS slides down a rope into the control room. He is hit almost immediately by a DALEK ray but instead of falling dead, manages to stagger to his feet and grab hold of his attacker as GANATUS grapples with another DALEK.)

SECOND DALEK: Reinforcements! Overpowered! Reinforcements! Quickly! Quickly!

(KRISTAS pushes the DALEK into one of the pieces of equipment. It hits it with a huge explosion. The DOCTOR runs towards the ejector capsule.)

DOCTOR: Chesterton, come here!
IAN: Doctor, Doctor, I think they're dying!

(The DOCTOR runs over to where a DALEK is slowly moving around, its arm and gun pointing at the floor.)

DALEK: (Weakly.) Power…going…
DOCTOR: They were about to spread radiation into the air.
IAN: We’ve knocked out their source of power, I tell you! Look!

(As he speaks, the noise of the electronic instruments in the room dies down. He kicks the DALEK across the room. It offers no resistance. The room descends into silence as the power totally drains away. SUSAN, BARBARA and GANATUS are helping the wounded KRISTAS.)

SUSAN: Barbara, is he all right?
BARBARA: Yes, he’s very badly hurt. But he’s alive.

(IAN picks up the fluid link from a console. One of the DALEKS weakly turns to the DOCTOR.)

DALEK: Listen…to…me….
DOCTOR: Yes?
DALEK: Stop…our power…from wasting…or it will be….end of the Dalekkksss…
DOCTOR: Even if I wanted to, I don’t know how.

(The DALEK eyestalk raises straight upwards and it twists round as the creature inside gives a strangled cry. ALYDON gets up from the floor and looks round in amazement and relief.)

ALYDON: It’s finished.

(He turns a dead Thal over.)

ALYDON: The final war. Five hundred years of destruction end in this.
DOCTOR: No doubt you will have other wars to fight. Chesterton? Come along, my boy. We’ve got work to do. I want to look at the reactors and see if there’s any radiation leakage.

(They walk up to a DALEK which has been turned on its side and look over it.)

IAN: Yes and get the ship working again, Doctor?
DOCTOR: Hmm?

(IAN holds up the fluid link. The DOCTOR snatches it from him.)

DOCTOR: Oh yes, yes, yes, of course. Come along, come along.

(He walks out of the room. IAN follows smiles, shakes his head and follows. ALYDON joins the women as they raise KRISTAS to his feet.)

ALYDON: Kristas, are you all right?
KRISTAS: (Weakly.) Yes thanks.

(ALYDON relieves SUSAN of the weight of KRISTAS by taking one of his arms across his shoulder.)

ALYDON: Let’s get him up to the air

(He takes one last look around him.)

ALYDON: All this machinery - what good is it to us? None of us knows the first thing about it.
BARBARA: Well, you must experiment. These Dalek inventions should be of some use to you.

(BARBARA, ALYDON and KRISTAS leave the room. Only SUSAN and GANATUS are left.)

SUSAN: Yes, the Daleks have developed food by artificial sunlight. You've got everything you need now.
GANATUS: (Quietly.) Yes.

(He gazes round the room.)

GANATUS: If only there'd been…some other way.

(They leave the room to make their way out of the city. Only the destroyed DALEKS remain behind in the silent room.)


26. EXT. FOREST

(A piece of DALEK machinery sits in the Thal encampment. ALYDON is examining it. DYONI passes by and puts a piece of food in his mouth which he accepts happily. The DOCTOR walks by with a rack of test tubes in his hands. He chuckles as he sees ALYDON’S efforts with the machine.)

DOCTOR: This is what they call a compensator, my friend.
ALYDON: Which is?
DOCTOR: The whole of it.

(He places his rack of tubes on top if it.)

DOCTOR: It’s useless. Throw it away, forget it. Unless you want to live in a shell like our dead friends?
ALYDON: (Admiringly.) Huh! where do you get your knowledge from, Doctor? You know, there never seems to have been time to ask, but…we don’t really know where you come from - or why.

(DYONI joins them. The DOCTOR is lost in his own thoughts.)

DOCTOR: To rebuild a whole new world. Hmm! How I envy you!
ALYDON: But you must stay and help us! We could learn from you.
DOCTOR: Oh no, no, no. I’m afraid I’m much too old to be a pioneer - although I was once, amongst my own people.
ALYDON: Oh, then stay and advise us, please!
DOCTOR: No, no thank you. We are much too far away from home, my granddaughter and I. Thank you all the same. It’s a nice gesture on your part.

(He points at his rack of test tubes.)

DOCTOR: You know, this soil is not quite so barren as you think. I've been making tests…and even you might live to see and hear the birds amongst the trees.

(ALYDON and DYONI smile.)

DOCTOR: You wanted advice, you said. I never give it - never. But I might just say this to you: Always search for truth. My truth is…in the stars…and yours is here.
DYONI: Won't you rest with us?
DOCTOR: No, I’m afraid it’s out of the question. But I might visit your grandchildren to find if they’ve learnt the secrets. And if they have, well - who knows? I might live with them!

(He laughs. SUSAN excitedly comes up dressed in a long striped cape which she turns round showing off.)

SUSAN: Ta-dar! Look, Grandfather…isn’t it terrific? Thank you, Dyoni.

(She twirls and falls over. They all laugh, including IAN who has just joined them.)

IAN: What are you up to, Susan?
SUSAN: It’s a present from Dyoni. Isn’t it gorgeous!
IAN: It’s lovely! Oh, by the way Doctor, have you fitted the fluid link?
DOCTOR: Er, not yet, but I have it safely here.

(He pats his coat pocket.)

DOCTOR: And there's no need to worry about mercury, young man.
IAN: Good. (To DYONI.) Well, goodbye Dyoni.
DYONI: Goodbye.
IAN: Goodbye, Alydon.
ALYDON: Goodbye, Ian.

(IAN heads for the TARDIS.)

DOCTOR: (To SUSAN.) Come along, my child. I'm hungry.
SUSAN: Goodbye, Dyoni.
DYONI: Goodbye.
SUSAN: Thank you.

(SUSAN hugs ALYDON.)

SUSAN: (In a whisper.) Bye

(She heads for the TARDIS. GANATUS is saying goodbye to IAN and BARBARA at the ship.)

IAN: Goodbye, Ganatus.
GANATUS: Goodbye, Ian.
IAN: Barbara?
BARBARA: Right.

(The DOCTOR suddenly runs back to the compensator and picks up his rack of test tubes.)

DOCTOR: How stupid of me…I very nearly forgot my specimens! (To ALYDON.) Oh, er, your hand, sir.

(ALYDON looks puzzled but nevertheless holds out his hand. The DOCTOR takes it and gives it a shake.)

DOCTOR: Goodbye.
ALYDON: (Puzzled.) Goodbye, Doctor.

(BARBARA and GANATUS are by themselves near the ship.)

BARBARA: Well, Ganatus?
GANATUS: Well, Barbara?

(He hands her a length of Thal cloth.)

GANATUS: The dress you make from this won’t be suitable for swamps and caverns but…
BARBARA: Well, that's a good thing.
GANATUS: Yes.
BARBARA: It’s beautiful. Thank you very much. Thank you for everything.
GANATUS: (Hesitates.) I wish we…

(SUSAN pops her head out of the TARDIS.)

SUSAN: Barbara! We’re waiting!

(BARBARA moves to leave. GANATUS stops her and kisses her hand. BARBARA kisses him back then walks into the TARDIS, closing the door. ALYDON and DYONI walk up to GANATUS.)

ALYDON: Come along, Ganatus.

(GANATUS looks desolate.)

DYONI: Don't be sad, Ganatus.
GANATUS: I won’t be...but I don't think I'll ever forget her.

(His words are interrupted as the TARDIS dematerialisation noise sounds though the trees. The ship vanishes. DYONI walks into the space that the ship occupied and touches the ground. She looks up into the faces of her people in puzzlement…)


27: INT. TARDIS. CONSOLE ROOM

(IAN, BARBARA and SUSAN look on as the DOCTOR manipulates the TARDIS controls. As he hurries round the console, there is an explosion and everyone is knocked to one side as the room is plunged into darkness.)
