1: EXT. KING PRIAM'S PALACE. BALCONY

CASSANDRA: Then woe to the House of Priam. Woe to the Trojans!
PARIS: I'm afraid you're a bit late to say 'whoa' to the horse! I've just given instructions to have it brought into the city.


2: EXT. PLAIN OF TROY

(The horse moves slowly forward to the city. At its feet, the excited, but doomed crowd can be heard.)

HORSE OF DESTRUCTION

Written by
DONALD COTTON


3: INT. CHAMBER OF KING PRIAM'S PALACE

(All except VICKI have come back from the balcony and back into the chamber. She is nowhere to be seen but her absence is not immediately noticed.)

CASSANDRA: Of all the idiocy! To have it brought into the city!
PARIS: (Despairing.) Why? Th...that horse is in the image of one of our gods!
CASSANDRA: It's a trick. My dreams have always been right and they foretell disaster.

(PARIS laughs in a sneering fashion.)

PARIS: Now were they right about that little temple? That has brought us nothing but good luck.
CASSANDRA: Good luck you call it. The whole family besotted by that sorceress!
PRIAM: Oh, I do wish you'd stop calling Cressida that. And I would call it luck to have the entire Greek army removed from our shores. Peace, at last! Though the arrival of the horse is a little puzzling.
PARIS: Well, Cressida probably arranged it and the very sight of it just...just frightened the Greeks away.

(TROILUS looks round at this reminder.)

TROILUS: (Puzzled.) Where is Cressida?

(The others also glance round the room.)

PARIS: Oh, she's probably down in the square watching them bring in the horse.
TROILUS: Oh, then I'd better go and look for her. I don't like her to go wandering round the city on her own.
PRIAM: No, bring her back up here again she'll get a betterful view.

(As TROILUS leaves and PRIAM and PARIS go back up to the balcony, CASSANDRA moves to the back of the room where KATARINA, a handmaiden, is standing and whispers to her.)

CASSANDRA: Katarina! Go and look for the sorceress. I don't trust my lovesick brother.
KATARINA: But great priestess, the auguries said that...
CASSANDRA: (Hisses.) Do you dare to question me?!

(KATARINA hangs her head in fear.)

KATARINA: No.
CASSANDRA: Very well then, go and watch for that girl.

(KATARINA leaves the throne room worriedly as CASSANDRA goes back onto the balcony.)


4: INT. KING PRIAM'S PALACE. DUNGEONS

(VICKI is descending into the gloom. STEVEN sees her approaching through the bars.)

STEVEN: What's going on up there?

(VICKI unbolts the door.)

VICKI: They're just bringing the horse into the city. Follow me.

(STEVEN leaves the cell and follows her as instructed.)


5: INT. WOODEN HORSE

(The Horse is still banging from side to side with a very uncomfortable DOCTOR within...)

DOCTOR: Oh, I'm still very worried about those fetlocks!
ODYSSEUS: Be happy that's all you have to worry about. Ah! Of all the undignified ways of entering a city this takes the flying phoenix.
DOCTOR: If only you would have allowed me another day to fit shock absorbers. ___!

(The DOCTOR is almost knocked from his feet by the movement of the horse as it suddenly stops.)

ODYSSEUS: Zeus be praised! We've arrived.
DOCTOR: (Relieved.) Oh! Well now, what is it you propose to do, hmm?
ODYSSEUS: We wait Doctor, without movement.

(The DOCTOR makes a noise as he does move.)

ODYSSEUS: (Whispers loudly.) In absolute silence!


6: EXT. TROY. MAIN SQUARE

(The towering Horse stands in the main square. A chattering crowd can be heard below it.)


7: EXT. KING PRIAM'S PALACE. BALCONY

(PARIS is rather pleased with himself as he, the King and CASSANDRA look down on it from the balcony.)

PARIS: There, father, the horse is safely installed. And you may notice my sister that nothing, er, "disastrous" has occurred.
CASSANDRA: Wait and see. There's time yet and mark my words that horse will be the doom of Troy.
PRIAM: It's a little more rough-hewn than I had expected. Well, since it's here, we'd better take a closer look.


8: EXT. MAIN SQUARE OF TROY

(STEVEN and VICKI are moving behind pillars to avoid the inhabitants of the city who themselves are heading in the direction of the Horse. The two companions reach the edge of the square and look up at the towering structure. STEVEN is impressed.)

STEVEN: That's some horse.
VICKI: If you can call it that.
STEVEN: The Doctor said...

(He cuts off as a group of Trojan citizens begin laughing close by. STEVEN realises he is still dressed as a Greek and pulls VICKI away back from the crowd and into better cover.)

VICKI: It'd be pretty silly if they caught you again.
STEVEN: Hmm, and you!
VICKI: What do you mean?
STEVEN: Well, if they find us together they'll know you let me out.

(VICKI indicates the Horse.)

VICKI: They think I invoked that thing. I'm all right.
STEVEN: Yes, only so long as they think it's a gift from the gods. They'll know very differently once the Doctor and company come out of it.
VICKI: Do you think he's in it?
STEVEN: Well, it's likely, isn't it? I mean he'll be worried about getting back to the TARDIS.
VICKI: He must be able to see he's got nothing to worry about. That thing is so rickety it must be full of people.
STEVEN: Oh right, you'd do better in the time they had? Now, I wonder why he didn't delay like we asked?
VICKI: He must have a plan of escape - to rescue us. Cyclops must have told him where we were.
STEVEN: If Cyclops got through.
VICKI: Look!

(VICKI suddenly notices KATARINA moving through the crowd as if searching for something or someone.)

VICKI: That is one of Cassandra's girls.
STEVEN: (Whispers.) What?
VICKI: That girl, I've seen her with Cassandra. She's a handmaiden at the Temple or something.
STEVEN: Then she must be looking for you. Look, you go back. I'll find somewhere to hide around here.
VICKI: Look they trust me, I'd...
STEVEN: (Interrupting.) Better go! In any case, Troilus will die of jealousy if he knows you're with me.
VICKI: And what is that supposed to mean?
STEVEN: (Laughs.) Oh come off it, Vicki. The way you two were carrying on back there in the...
VICKI: (Interrupts angrily.) Troilus has been very kind to me and I'm very fond of him and if all you can do is make remarks like that...
STEVEN: (Laughs.) I'm sorry, I'm sorry!

(He sees that VICKI is upset and adopts a more gentle manner.)

STEVEN: No really, I am sorry. Okay, but look, if you really are that fond of him, you'd better tell him to get out of the city.
VICKI: Why?

(She looks again towards the horse and the realisation of what is to come dawns on her.)

VICKI: You mean when they come out of that thing they...Steven!
STEVEN: It's possible isn't it? Tell him to get out of Troy, just to be on the safe side.

(The TARDIS sits small near the looming and ominous Horse.)


9: INT. CHAMBER OF KING PRIAM'S PALACE

(TROILUS comes running into the chamber where PARIS, PRIAM and CASSANDRA are gathered. The noise of the crowd reaches them from outside.)

TROILUS: Diomede! He's gone.
PARIS: Gone?
TROILUS: His cell's empty. The guards were locked in by a trick so they say.
CASSANDRA: That Cressida! Troy's doom is nigh!
TROILUS: But how could it be? She's one girl!
CASSANDRA: (Spits.) A girl you call her, you love sick fool! But I know she's a witch and must be burnt, along with that horse out there.

(CASSANDRA suddenly sees VICKI entering the room.)

CASSANDRA: See! There she stands.

(TROILUS and PARIS both start shouting at once.)

TROILUS: ____!
PARIS: Now did you ever see someone so unlike a witch?
PRIAM: (Interrupts.) Now, now quiet all of you. (To VICKI, gently.) Come here my child, where have you been? We've been worried about you.
VICKI: I've just been out.
PRIAM: Yes, but where?
TROILUS: Look you didn't free Diomede did you?
VICKI: Diomede?
PRIAM: Yes - your friend, the Greek prisoner, he has escaped. Did you set him free?
PARIS: Oh, that's nonsense. I mean how could she have?
CASSANDRA: By sorcery.
VICKI: I am not a sorceress - really I'm not.
PRIAM: Yes, I...I'll believe you my child, but you must forgive us if we are naturally suspicious. This has been a long and difficult war and peace will take a little bit of getting used to.
CASSANDRA: My handmaiden Katarina will stay with her.
PRIAM: Very well. Come my children, our people have gone to the square of ot....oratory. We must go and join them there and I must speak. And we must also make plans for the celebration. (To VICKI.) Thank you, my dear, see you later.
VICKI: Thank you, thank you for being so kind to me.
PRIAM: My dear child, this city owes its salvation to you.

(PRIAM and the others depart leaving VICKI alone with KATARINA. VICKI is anguished.)

VICKI: Oh no, let it not happen.
KATARINA: Did you want something?
VICKI: No, thank you.


10: INT. WOODEN HORSE

(Inside the Horse, the DOCTOR is agitated while ODYSSEUS stares into space.)

DOCTOR: How you can sit there so peacefully defeats me, hmm! Have you no feelings, mm? No emotions hmm?
ODYSSEUS: I was thinking, Doctor.
DOCTOR: Hmm!
ODYSSEUS: That with any luck, either Agamemnon or Achilles will not come through.
DOCTOR: You mean they'll desert us, hmm?
ODYSSEUS: No...
DOCTOR: Hmph!
ODYSSEUS: ...die. Just a hope. One less finger in the pie, a greater share of the booty for me.
DOCTOR: That is a most immoral way of looking at life, hmm!
ODYSSEUS: Nonsense! It's the reason that I've been here for ten long years fighting all the time.
DOCTOR: Yes, well, I must get out of here at once.
ODYSSEUS: You can't.
DOCTOR: (Sarcastically.) Ahh! I've only got to pull that lever...

(The DOCTOR taps a wooden lever.)

DOCTOR: ...and I can get back down into the square.
ODYSSEUS: (Laughs.) Yes, yes. But as I happen to be sitting on the rope, you'll fall forty feet and break your neck.
DOCTOR: (Shouts.) I will not be party to your schemes! (Quieter.) You forced me to invent this contraption.
ODYSSEUS: I'm very glad I did, Doctor.
DOCTOR: Hmm?
ODYSSEUS: Up to now, it's been very satisfactory.
DOCTOR: You had no right to bring me here at all. I'm utterly useless to you.

(ODYSSEUS laughs heartily, and sarcastically the DOCTOR joins in.)

DOCTOR: You must let me out of here! You're selfish, greedy, corrupt, cheap, horrible. Your one thought is for yourself and what you can get out of it.

(ODYSSEUS places a sword at the DOCTOR'S throat. The DOCTOR starts.)

ODYSSEUS: Be quiet, old man.
DOCTOR: I will not be quiet! You may stay here if you wish to have your insignificant win. Your victory or whatever you call it, but you must let me out of here.
ODYSSEUS: One more word out of you and I shall kill you! You would be my first victim in Troy.

(The DOCTOR steps away from the hatch and ODYSSEUS lowers his sword.)

ODYSSEUS: That's better. About now our ships should be returning...as you planned.

(The DOCTOR snorts in a derisory manner.)


11: INT. CHAMBER IN KING PRIAM'S PALACE

(KATARINA is asleep in a chair. VICKI comes down the steps from the balcony as TROILUS enters the chamber.)

TROILUS: Cressida.
VICKI: Oh! Oh, I'm so glad you've come.
TROILUS: I had to see you.
VICKI: Troilus, dear Troilus, will you do something for me?
TROILUS: Anything.
VICKI: Leave the city.
TROILUS: Why?
VICKI: It's Diomede.
TROILUS: Diomede?
VICKI: I'm sure he's out on the plain. You've got to go and look for him and find him. If you bring him back you'll prove yourself the warrior you really are, he'll be your prisoner then as well as Paris'.
TROILUS: But he may have been rescued by the Greeks by now.
VICKI: No no no, Paris said they'd all gone away and that was before he even escaped.
TROILUS: (Suspiciously.) Why this concern for Diomede? Is he? Do you? I mean...are you in love with him?
VICKI: No, he's just a friend.
TROILUS: Then if he's your friend, why do you want him captured? To be a prisoner of war's considered very bad form.
VICKI: But... Oh, why won't you see? Go out and search for him on the plain!
TROILUS: Cressida, I said I'd do anything for you and a Trojan stands by his word, but please, why do you want me to leave the city and go and search for a highly skilled Greek warrior?
VICKI: He isn't armed. I wouldn't send you out there if I thought anything could happen to you. I just want you to...I just want you to catch your own prisoner.
TROILUS: Did you mean that? About not wanting me hurt?
VICKI: Of course I did, I wouldn't ask you to do it otherwise.
TROILUS: Oh, Cressida.
VICKI: You haven't got time, you've got to go now.

(VICKI'S tears well in her eyes.)

TROILUS: Don't worry, everything's going to be all right.

(They embrace and TROILUS leaves. VICKI remains tearful)


12: EXT. MAIN SQUARE OF TROY (NIGHT)

(It is night and the city is quiet. A sentry walks past the Horse. After he has gone, a rope descends from the immense wooden horse, and the Greek soldiers drop to the ground. Eventually the DOCTOR comes uncomfortably down the rope followed by ODYSSEUS.)

ODYSSEUS: ___! Come!

(As the Greeks move along, they silently kill a sentry.)

DOCTOR: Ahh!
ODYSSEUS: This plan of yours, Doctor...is going to be a great success. Stay close to me.

(ODYSSEUS motions his men and the DOCTOR to move out across the square.)


13: EXT. PLAIN OF TROY (NIGHT)

(Outside the walls of Troy, TROILUS is searching frantically.)

TROILUS: Diomede!

(ACHILLES, who has been watching from behind some rocks, comes into view of the young Trojan.)

TROILUS: Diomede where are you!
ACHILLES: What ails you, petty Princeling? Lost some plaything? The one you call for is long dead.
TROILUS: You're a Greek! I thought you'd sailed away. Who are you?
ACHILLES: You should not ask. My name is Achilles.
TROILUS: My brother's murderer!
ACHILLES: So Prince Troilus, is it? Well, I killed your brother fairly. Fought him man to man. Alas I cannot do the same for you. This would be the murder of a boy!
TROILUS: Has Cressida played me false? Very well, I'll fight my brother's murderer for I only live to kill Diomede!
ACHILLES: Who is already dead. So follow him, Trojan!

(They draw swords and fight ferociously, as they wheel round and round. ACHILLES is surprised by TROILUS' ability and strength for his slender frame but the Trojan is determined to avenge the death of his brother. ACHILLES trips and falls and TROLIUS moves in with his sword and stabs at the Greek. ACHILLES cries out in pain.)

TROILUS: So died my brother.

(He pushes his sword in again.)

TROILUS: The wheel has spun full circle.

(He goes to complete the task but ACHILLES, although wounded, manages to strike at TROILUS before he dies. TROLIUS staggers away from the body.)

TROILUS: Diomede, I live to call down wrath for love of Cressida.


14: EXT. MAIN SQUARE OF TROY (NIGHT)

(A single Greek soldier pushes open the immense main gates of Troy. As he does so, the Greeks outside pour into the city with a cry.)


15: INT. CHAMBER IN KING PRIAM'S PALACE

(In the palace, PRIAM is pacing nervously as he hears the destruction of his city outside. CASSANDRA waits angrily by the window. A terrified female scream reaches them.)

PRIAM: What noise was that?

(PARIS can be heard outside the room in a fight. He enters the chamber, bleeding and exhausted.)

PARIS: Father!
PRIAM: What are you doing?
PARIS: It's the Greeks! They were inside the horse and our gates are open to the enemy.
CASSANDRA: And none of you would listen to me!

(ODYSSEUS enters steeped in triumph, he is enjoying himself. He laughs heartily as his soldiers follow him in. PRIAM, CASSANDRA and PARIS turn to run.)

ODYSSEUS: Flee hornets in their nest! (Laughs.) Kill them!

(His soldiers run after the King and PARIS as CASSANDRA is thrown into ODYSSEUS' arms and he grabs her laughing.)


16: EXT. TROY

(The city is now on fire...)


17: EXT. MAIN SQUARE OF TROY

(The DOCTOR has managed to give the Greeks the slip and has made his way to the TARDIS. VICKI sees him and runs towards him, KATARINA following.)

VICKI: Doctor!

(She runs into his arms.)

VICKI: Oh, Doctor!
DOCTOR: Oh, my dear child! (He laughs.) Oh, how lovely to see you! Where have you been all this time, hmm? And where's Steven?

(VICKI points across the square.)

VICKI: (Frantically.) Doctor he's over there, but I've got to talk to you.
DOCTOR: Oh now one thing at a time child. Where's the young man?

(VICKI calls over to the waiting handmaiden.)

VICKI: Katarina?
DOCTOR: Hmm?

(The Trojan handmaiden steps forward.)

VICKI: Katarina, this is the Doctor. Now go and find the man you call Diomede. He's hiding amongst those pillars over there.
KATARINA: You're from the other place?
DOCTOR: But who is this child? Now pull yourself together, we've got to go, hmm?
VICKI: Katarina, go and find Diomede - he will be there. Bring him to...my temple, quickly.
DOCTOR: We must all go and find him, come along!
VICKI: No, Doctor, into the TARDIS. Quickly.

(She desperately pushes the DOCTOR towards the door of the TARDIS.)

DOCTOR: Yes, but my dear child, the boy, the boy...
VICKI: Open the door and listen to me please!
DOCTOR: Yes, yes, but be patient.
VICKI: Steven is safe, Katarina will bring him...

(The DOCTOR talks over VICKI as he unlocks the TARDIS door.)

DOCTOR: Yes I know, patience, patience...
VICKI: Come on, I've got to talk to you!

(She pushes him into the TARDIS.)

DOCTOR: Oh!


18: EXT. ANOTHER PART OF THE MAIN SQUARE

(STEVEN'S hiding place is not safe at all - his Greek soldier's robes have caught the attention of a Trojan warrior and they are fighting. Steven is wounded in the shoulder but another Greek enters the fray and the two move off fighting. STEVEN has fallen to the floor which is where he is found by KATARINA.)

KATARINA: Diomede, Cressida has sent me.
STEVEN: Who are you?

(He is badly wounded and has very little strength left. KATARINA helps him up.)

KATARINA: I've come to take you to your temple. Oh, come, quickly.
STEVEN: I can't.
KATARINA: Lean on me.

(She holds the weakened STEVEN and leads him away.)


19: EXT. MAIN SQUARE OF TROY

(Across the square, the door to the TARDIS opens and VICKI steps sadly out. She walks off. A moment later, the DOCTOR emerges and watches her go.)


20: INT. CHAMBER IN KING PRIAM'S PALACE.

(PRIAM and PARIS lie dead. ODYSSEUS has CASSANDRA by the shoulders and is shaking her violently as she resists.)

ODYSSEUS: Stop struggling woman! You are reserved for Agamemnon and he's welcome to you!
CASSANDRA: Tricksters! You Greeks will never learn to fight honestly!
ODYSSEUS: But we win!
CASSANDRA: Not for long. The day will come when you will perish as you made us do!
ODYSSEUS: Take her away.

(He throws her to his soldiers.)

ODYSSEUS: The high-born are reserved for Agamemnon! I can't wait to see him enjoy a talk with this one.
CASSANDRA: (Spits.) Ten long years we fought you, Odysseus! And ten long years it'll be before you see your home again!
ODYSSEUS: To Agamemnon with her!
CASSANDRA: Oh!
ODYSSEUS: To his ship. A personal present from me.

(CASSANDRA is dragged struggling away.)

CASSANDRA: Keep your hands off me! Keep your...hands off me! Oh!


21: EXT. MAIN SQUARE OF TROY

(The DOCTOR helps KATARINA to get STEVEN to the TARDIS.)

DOCTOR: Now then, you sure it's just the shoulder, hmm?

(KATARINA nods.)

DOCTOR: Right well, steady, steady, hold tight, hold on.

(The DOCTOR steadies STEVEN with KATARINA as he tries to get his key out.)

DOCTOR: Yes, Careful, just a minute, careful, careful with him.

(He opens the door.)

DOCTOR: Oh dear, dear, this business. There we are. Now, come on bring him in...bring him in there.

(He points at to the open door of the TARDIS. KATARINA helps the almost unconscious time traveller into the TARDIS. The DOCTOR calls to them from outside.)

DOCTOR: Gently, carefully, that's it, that's it, put him on the couch.

(As the DOCTOR is about to enter the TARDIS, ODYSSEUS rushes in with his troops with swords drawn. He turns away from the open door.)

ODYSSEUS: Stand still old man - or you die! I claim your machine as part of my share!
DOCTOR: Share of what?
ODYSSEUS: The spoils of war!
DOCTOR: Now you stand back. I've gone far enough with you, my Lord Odysseus. You go adventuring on your own. Be off with you!

(He laughs and rushes into the TARDIS. ODYSSEUS yells to his soldiers.)

ODYSSEUS: Seize it! Come on, move! Quickly...a cart!

(The TARDIS begins to dematerialise.)

ODYSSEUS: (In a rage.) Doctor!

(As ODYSSEUS and the soldiers watch in awe, the ship fades away.)

ODYSSEUS: Zeus! (Laughs.) I wonder...were you really Zeus, after all?


22: EXT. PLAIN OF TROY

(TROILUS is bereft as he watches his beloved city burn in the night.)

TROILUS: Cressida! Cressida! Could you have betrayed us?

(He almost screams in pain...)

TROILUS: Cressida!

(He sinks to his knees as someone stands next to him. He looks up and sees VICKI.)

VICKI: I came to find you.
TROILUS: Cressida what are you doing here. Where's Diomede?
VICKI: He's gone...with...another friend that you never met.
TROILUS: (Bitterly.) Back to Greece.
VICKI: No to...where I come from. You see he wasn't really a Greek, he...

(She notices his wounds.)

VICKI: Oh, Troilus, you're hurt!
TROILUS: Just a bit.

(He tries to hide his wound.)

VICKI: No, let me look.
TROILUS: No, I'll be all right. Look, Cressida, I don't understand?
VICKI: I...

(She is stuck for an explanation.)

VICKI: I don't suppose you ever will. That doesn't matter...so long as you trust me.
TROILUS: Trust you! After all...
VICKI: (Passionately.) I didn't betray you - that's why I stayed behind, I wanted you to know that I didn't. The main thing is...I belong here now with you - If you'll have me.
TROILUS: Cressida...

(He looks towards the remains of Troy.)

TROILUS: Look what's happened.

(VICKI follows his gaze.)

VICKI: There's only us now.
TROILUS: What do you mean?
VICKI: I'll explain someday. I'm sorry.
TROILUS: But...but there's nowhere to go.
VICKI: We'll find somewhere.
TROILUS: Oh, Cressida...

(They embrace and kiss. TROILUS suddenly notices some figures moving in the distance.)

TROILUS: Cressida, look!

(VICKI tries to pull him down out of sight.)

VICKI: Be careful, they may be Greeks!
TROILUS: It's my cousin!
VICKI: Cousin?
TROILUS: Yes, Aeneas. Oh, if only he'd come sooner!
VICKI: That's it.
TROILUS: What?
VICKI: He'll help us.
TROILUS: (Confused.) But there's...there's nothing left.
VICKI: (Smiles.) Yes there is - there's us. We can start again with your cousin's help we can...we can build another Troy!


23: INT. TARDIS. CONSOLE ROOM

(Inside the TARDIS, STEVEN'S condition is worsening as he lies on the divan. The DOCTOR mops his brow while KATARINA stands helplessly by. STEVEN has some kind of infection, he is delirious and tosses and turns. The DOCTOR tuts.)

DOCTOR: That's not good, that's not good at all. Hmm! Get help.
KATARINA: What help is there in limbo?
DOCTOR: What's that, my dear?
STEVEN: Vicki...
DOCTOR: No, no, no, no, no, keep calm, keep calm.
STEVEN: Is she all right?
DOCTOR: Yes, yes, she's all right, yes, yes.

(STEVEN, in something of a fever, points at KATARINA.)

STEVEN: What's she doing over there?
DOCTOR: No, no, no that's not Vicki, that's not Vicki, now keep calm.
STEVEN: Not Vicki?
DOCTOR: Be quiet!

(STEVEN starts to struggle.)

STEVEN: Where is she? The Trojans'll kill her. You came too soon!
DOCTOR: She's all right, she's all right. She wanted to stay.
STEVEN: The Greeks...the Greeks...the Trojans...

(STEVEN tries to rise from the couch, DOCTOR places a hand on his chest and pushes him back down.)

DOCTOR: Keep still.
STEVEN: Ahh...Vicki.
DOCTOR: She's all right. I know she is. She's gone to find Troilus and she'll be quite all right. This is just what she wanted. Now calm down. Yes, quiet, quiet.
STEVEN: (Whispers.) Vicki...Vicki...

(He grows quieter.)

DOCTOR: Oh... (Sighs.) You'll have to look after that young man. I think he has calmed down.

(KATARINA smiles.)

KATARINA: Strange god, you bring me peace.
DOCTOR: No, I...I don't know what Vicki has advised you, but...
KATARINA: Oh, the Priestess Cressida told me all would be well, and I knew it was to come.
DOCTOR: What was to come my dear?
KATARINA: That I was to die.
DOCTOR: (Shocked.) My dear child you're not dead! That's nonsense. Hmm?

(KATARINA looks round the console room.)

KATARINA: This is not Troy. This is not even the world. This is the Journey through the Beyond.
DOCTOR: Well, as you wish...
KATARINA: Thank you.
DOCTOR: Yes, yes, yes, as you wish my child. Now I want you to keep an eye on that young man will you. Hmm?
KATARINA: Yes, great god.
DOCTOR: His name is Steven. Oh...and remember Katarina, you must call me Doctor.
KATARINA: Oh, as you wish, Doc...
DOCTOR: I'm not a Doc. I am not a god. Oh, my dear Vicki, I hope you'll be all right, hmm?

(His voice is overcome with emotion.)

DOCTOR: I shall miss you child. Oh, hmm!

(He suddenly remembers their present acute situation.)

DOCTOR: (Worried.) Oh yes, now those drugs, those drugs, what am I going to do? I must stop somewhere. But how? I've got to, yes! I must! I must!

(The DOCTOR steps over to the console.)
