(The Doctor has golden energy streaming from his
hands and head, and he, Jack and Rose believe he is regenerating. With
an effort, the Doctor turns and points both hands towards his spare
hand in the jar by the time console. It absorbs it and he is released.)
DOCTOR: Now then. Where were we?
(Donna, Jack and Rose are stunned.)
[Sarah Jane's car]
DALEKS: Exterminate! Exterminate!
(Suddenly, two figures with honking big guns appear either side of the
car and blast the Daleks.)
MICKEY: Us Smiths got to stick together!
JACKIE: Jackie Tyler, Rose's mum. Now where the hell is my daughter?
(Gwen and Ianto empty their machinegun clips at the
Dalek, who isn't shooting back. When they stop, they see the bullets
hanging in midair. Gwen touches the air and it ripples like water.)
GWEN: What the hell?
(The Doctor checks on his glowing spare hand.)
DOCTOR: There now.
(He blows on the jar and the glowing stops.)
DOCTOR: You see? Used the regeneration energy to heal myself, but soon
as I was done, I didn't need to change. I didn't want to. Why would I?
Look at me. So, to stop the energy going all the way, I siphoned off
the rest into a handy bio-matching receptacle, namely my hand. My hand
there. My handy spare hand. Remember? Christmas Day, Sycorax. Lost my
hand in a sword fight? That's my hand. What do you think?
ROSE: You're still you?
DOCTOR: I'm still me.
(The Doctor and Rose hug. Donna turns to Jack.)
DONNA: You can hug me, if you want. No, really. You can hug me.
(Ianto is checking the data banks.)
IANTO: It's a Time Lock. The ultimate defence programme. Tosh was
working on it. Never thought she finished it, but she did. The Hub's
sealed in a time bubble. Nothing can get in.
GWEN: But that means we can't get out.
IANTO: Nope. Not without unlocking that Dalek. We're trapped inside.
It's all up to Jack now.
(The Tardis is in the middle of a litter-strewn
street, surrounded by four Daleks.)
DALEK: Report. Tardis has been located.
RED DALEK: Bring it here. Bring the Doctor to me!
Initiate temporal prison.
(The four Daleks create a shining blue energy ring
around the Tardis.)
DALEK: Temporal prison initiated.
(The power goes out.)
DOCTOR: They've got us. Power's gone. Some kind of chronon loop.
(The Tardis tilts with a jerk.)
(Sarah, Jackie and Mickey hide behind an abandoned
DALEK: Transferring Tardis to the Crucible.
(The Tardis is lifted away by an energy beam up into the space between
SARAH: Those teleport things. Can we use them? If they've taken the
Doctor to the Dalek spaceship, then that's where we need to be.
MICKEY: It's not just a teleport, it's a dimension jump. Man, this
thing rips a hole in the fabric of space.
SARAH: But can we use it?
MICKEY: Not yet. It burns up energy. Needs half an hour between jumps.
SARAH: Then put down your guns.
MICKEY: Do what?
SARAH: If you're carrying a gun, they'll shoot you dead.
(Sarah steps out into the street.)
SARAH: Daleks, I surrender.
DALEK: All humans in this sector will be taken to the Crucible.
MICKEY: She's bloody mad!
JACKIE: Yeah, but Mickey, if they've got the Doctor, then they've got
(Jackie puts down her gun and walks out.)
JACKIE: And us. We surrender.
(Mickey kisses his gun then follows.)
(Martha puts the Project Indigo backpack on.)
MARTHA: Now Jack's explained the base code, I know how this teleport
works. I think. But you just stay indoors. There's no Daleks on this
street. You should be all right. Just er, keep quiet.
FRANCINE: But where are you going?
MARTHA: I'm a member of UNIT, and they gave me the Osterhagen Key. I've
got to do my job. I'm sorry.
FRANCINE: Martha. What's an Osterhagen Key? Tell me. What does it do?
MARTHA: Love you.
(Martha pulls her ripcords and vanishes.)
[Germany - 60 miles outside Nuremberg]
(Martha lands in a wood. Daleks can be heard
shouting their favourite word in German.)
DALEK [OC]: Exterminieren! Exterminieren!
DALEK 2 [OC]: Halt! Sonst werden wir Sie exterminieren! Sie sind jetzt
ein Gefangener der Daleks!
(Martha sees a Dalek patrol gliding above the forest floor.)
DALEK: Exterminieren. Exterminieren.
JACK: There's a massive Dalek ship at the centre of
the planets. They're calling it the Crucible. Guess that's our
DONNA: You said these planets were like an engine. But what for?
DOCTOR: Rose, you've been in a parallel world. That world's running
ahead of this universe. You've seen the future. What was it?
ROSE: It's the darkness.
DONNA: The stars were going out.
ROSE: One by one. We looked up at the sky and they were just dying.
Basically, we've been building this, er, this travel machine, this,
this er, dimension cannon, so I could. Well, so I could
ROSE: So I could come back. Shut up. Anyway, suddenly, it started to
work and the dimensions started to collapse. Not just in our world, not
just in yours, but the whole of reality. Even the Void was dead.
Something is destroying everything.
DONNA: In that parallel world, you said something about me.
ROSE: The dimension cannon could measure timelines, and it's, it's
weird, Donna, but they all seemed to converge on you.
DONNA: But why me? I mean, what have I ever done? I'm a temp from
(The scanner beeps.)
DOCTOR: The Dalek Crucible. All aboard.
DALEK: The Tardis is secured.
RED DALEK: Doctor, you will step forth or die.
DOCTOR: We'll have to go out. Because if we don't,
they'll get in.
ROSE: You told me nothing could get through those doors.
JACK: You've got extrapolator shielding.
DOCTOR: Last time we fought the Daleks, they were scavengers and
hybrids, and mad. But this is a fully-fledged Dalek Empire, at the
height of its power. Experts at fighting Tardises, they can do
anything. Right now, that wooden door is just wood.
(Donna can hear a heartbeat thumping in her ears.)
JACK: What about your dimension jump?
ROSE: It needs another twenty minutes. And anyway, I'm not leaving.
DOCTOR: What about your teleport?
JACK: Went down with the power loss.
DOCTOR: Right then. All of us together. Yeah. Donna?
(Donna is staring at nothing. He snaps her out of it.)
DOCTOR: I'm sorry. There's nothing else we can do.
DONNA: No, I know.
RED DALEK: Surrender, Doctor, and face your Dalek
DALEK 3: Crucible on maximum alert.
JACK: Oh, God.
DOCTOR: It's been good, though, hasn't it? All of us. All of it.
Everything we did. (to Donna) You were brilliant. (to Jack) And you
were brilliant. (to Rose) And you were brilliant. Blimey.
(The Doctor leads his companions out of the Tardis.
Donna is lagging behind.)
RED DALEK: Daleks reign supreme. All hail the Daleks!
DALEKS: Daleks reign supreme. All hail the Daleks! Daleks reign
supreme. All hail the Daleks!
(Donna stops inside the Tardis, the heartbeat thumping in her ears. The
Doctor looks up at the phalanxes of Daleks flying around.)
DALEKS: Daleks reign supreme. All hail the Daleks! Daleks reign
supreme. All hail the Daleks!
RED DALEK: Behold, Doctor. Behold the might of the true Dalek race.
DOCTOR: Donna! You're no safer in there.
(The Tardis door slams shut, trapping Donna inside.)
DONNA: Doctor? What have you done?
DOCTOR: It wasn't me. I didn't do anything.
DONNA: Oi! Oi, I'm not staying behind!
DOCTOR: What did you do?!
RED DALEK: This is not of Dalek origin.
DOCTOR: Stop it! She's my friend. Now open the door
and let her out.
RED DALEK: This is Time Lord treachery.
DOCTOR: Me? The door just closed on its own.
RED DALEK: Nevertheless, the Tardis is a weapon and it will be
(A trapdoor opens under the Tardis and it drops.)
DOCTOR: What are you doing? Bring it back!
DOCTOR: What have you done? Where's it going?
RED DALEK: The Crucible has a heart of Z-neutrino energy. The Tardis
will be deposited into the core.
DOCTOR: You can't. You've taken the defences down. It'll be torn apart!
(The Tardis drops into the molten core. Fires break out and roundels
ROSE: But Donna's still in there!
JACK: Let her go!
RED DALEK: The female and the Tardis will perish together. Observe. The
last child of Gallifrey is powerless.
(An image of the Tardis bobbing in the molten core appears.)
DOCTOR: Please. I'm begging you. I'll do anything! Put me in her place.
You can do anything to me, I don't care, just get her out of there!
(The noise of the exploding roundels is replaced by the heartbeat.
Donna puts her hand on the spare hand jar. Golden energy flows out and
around her until the jar breaks.)
RED DALEK: You are connected to the Tardis. Now feel it die.
(The spare hand is lying on the floor, twitching.
The golden energy surges out and builds a new body for it, which looks
just like the old one.)
DONNA: It's you!
NEW DOCTOR: Oh, yes!
DONNA: You're naked.
NEW DOCTOR: Oh, yes.
DALEK 3: Total Tardis destruction in ten rels.
Nine, eight, seven, six
(The new Doctor presses a button on the console.)
DALEK 3: Five, four, three, two, one.
(The Tardis vanishes.)
RED DALEK: The Tardis has been destroyed. Now tell me, Doctor. What do
you feel? Anger? Sorrow? Despair?
RED DALEK: Then if emotions are so important, surely we have enhanced
JACK: Yeah? Feel this!
(Jack produces a small revolver and shoots at the Red Dalek.)
RED DALEK: Exterminate!
(The Red Dalek zaps Jack.)
ROSE: Jack. Oh, my God. Oh, no.
DOCTOR: Rose, come here. Leave him.
ROSE: They killed him.
DOCTOR: I know. I'm sorry.
RED DALEK: Escort them to the Vault.
DOCTOR: There's nothing we can do.
RED DALEK: They are the playthings of Davros now.
(Jack blinks. The Tardis appears in space.)
NEW DOCTOR: All repaired. Lovely. Shush. No one
knows we're here. Got to keep quiet. Silent running, like on submarines
when you can't even drop a spanner. Don't drop a spanner! I like blue.
What do you think?
DONNA: You are bonkers.
NEW DOCTOR: Why? What's wrong with blue?
DONNA: Is that what Time Lords do? Lop a bit off, grow another one?
You're like worms.
NEW DOCTOR: No, no, no, no, no. I'm unique. Never been another like me.
Because all that regeneration energy went into the hand. Look at my
hand. I love that hand. But then you touched it. Wham! Shush.
Instantaneous biological metacrisis. I grew out of you. Still, could be
DONNA: Oi, watch it, spaceman.
NEW DOCTOR: Oi, watch it, Earth girl. Ooo. I sound like you. I sound
all, all sort of rough.
NEW DOCTOR: Oi!
NEW DOCTOR: Spanners. Shush. I must have picked up a bit of your voice,
that's all. Is it? Did I? No. Oh, you are kidding me. No way. One
heart. I've only got one heart. This body has got only one heart.
DONNA: What, like you're human?
NEW DOCTOR: Oh, that's disgusting.
NEW DOCTOR: Oi!
DONNA: Stop it.
NEW DOCTOR: No, wait. I'm part Time Lord, part human. Well, isn't that
DONNA: I kept hearing that noise, that heartbeat.
NEW DOCTOR: Oh, that was me. My single heart. Because I'm a complicated
event in time and space. Must have rippled back, converging on you.
DONNA: But why me?
NEW DOCTOR: Because you're special.
DONNA: Oh, I keep telling you, I'm not.
NEW DOCTOR: No, but you are. Oh. You really don't believe that, do you?
I can see, Donna, what you're thinking. All that attitude, all that
lip, because all this time you think you're not worth it.
DONNA: Stop it.
NEW DOCTOR: Shouting at the world because no one's listening. Well, why
DONNA: Doctor? Stop it.
NEW DOCTOR: But look at what you did. No, it's more than that. It's
like we were always heading for this. You came to the Tardis. And you
found me again. Your granddad. Your car. Donna, your car. You parked
your car right where the Tardis was going land. That's not coincidence
at all! We've been blind. Something's been drawing us together for such
a long time.
DONNA: But you're talking like destiny. There's no such thing. Is
NEW DOCTOR: It's still not finished. It's like the pattern's not
complete. The strands are still drawing together. But heading for what?
[Outside the Schloss]
GERMAN WOMAN: Hier ist niemand. Was immer Sie
wollen, gehen Sie fort. Lassen Sie mich in Ruhe!
MARTHA: Ich heisse Martha Jones. Ich komme von UNIT. Agentin fuenf
sechs sechs sieben eins, von der medizinishen Abteilung.
GERMAN WOMAN: Es hiess Sie kaemen vorbei. That accent. That is London,
ja? I went to London. Long time ago.
MARTHA: I thought this place was supposed to be guarded.
GERMAN WOMAN: They were soldiers. Boys. I brought them food every day.
But when der Albtraum came from the sky, they went home to die. But not
MARTHA: I've got a job to do.
(The woman follows Martha through the dusty rooms
to see her pull down a hanging and enter a code into a large keypad.
Then it checks her handprint.)
GERMAN WOMAN: London. In those days, to see it. So much glamour. I was
so young. I heard the soldiers talking many times. They would speak of
the Osterhagen Key. I think London must be changed now, yes? But still,
(The woman points a gun at Martha as she opens the secure door.)
GERMAN WOMAN: You will not go.
MARTHA: I've got no choice.
GERMAN WOMAN: I know the Key. What it does. Sie sind der Albtraum,
nicht die anderen, Sie! Ich sollte Sie umbringen, am besten gleich
MARTHA: Then do it.
(But she can't. Martha steps into a small lift.)
GERMAN WOMAN: Martha, Zur Hoelle mit Dir!
MARTHA: I know.
DALEK: Commence disposal. Incinerate!
(Jack is in a large tub with the other rubbish. It is slid along the
floor and a steel door clangs down behind it.)
DALEK: Disposal completed.
(The Daleks leave. The steel door rises and Jack climbs out, coughing.)
(The lift brings Martha to a small high-tech room.
She presses a button.)
MARTHA: This is Osterhagen Station One. My name is Martha Jones. Is
there anyone there? Over.
DALEK 3: Prisoners now on board the Crucible. They
will be taken for testing.
SARAH: One step closer to the Doctor.
DAVROS: Activate the holding cells.
(Spotlights shine down on the Doctor and Rose.)
DAVROS: Excellent. Even when powerless, a Time Lord is best contained.
DOCTOR: Still scared of me, then?
DAVROS: It is time we talked, Doctor. After so very long.
DOCTOR: No, no, no, no, no. We're not doing the nostalgia tour. I want
to know what's happening right here, right now, because the Supreme
Dalek said Vault, yeah? As in dungeon, cellar, prison. You're not in
charge of the Daleks, are you? They've got you locked away down here in
the basement like, what, a servant? Slave? Court jester?
DAVROS: We have an arrangement.
DOCTOR: No, no, no, no, no. No, I've got the word. You're the Dalek's
DAVROS: So very full of fire, is he not. And to think you crossed
entire universes, striding parallel to parallel to find him again.
DOCTOR: Leave her alone.
DAVROS: She is mine to do as I please.
ROSE: Then why am I still alive?
DAVROS: You must be here. It was foretold. Even the Supreme Dalek would
not dare to contradict the prophecies of Dalek Caan.
CAAN: So cold and dark. Fire is coming. The endless flames.
ROSE: What is that thing?
DOCTOR: You've met before. The last of the Cult of Skaro. But it flew
into the Time War, unprotected.
DAVROS: Caan did more than that. He saw time. Its infinite complexity
and majesty, raging through his mind. And he saw you. Both of you.
CAAN: This I have foreseen, in the wild and the wind. The Doctor will
be here as witness, at the end of everything. The Doctor and his
precious Children of Time. And one of them will die.
DOCTOR: Was it you, Caan? Did you kill Donna? Why did the Tardis door
close? Tell me!
DAVROS: Oh, that's it. The anger, the fire, the rage of a Time Lord who
butchered millions. There he is. Why so shy? Show your companion. Show
her your true self. Dalek Caan has promised me that too.
CAAN: I have seen. At the time of ending, the Doctor's soul will be
DOCTOR: What does that mean?
DAVROS: We will discover it together. Our final journey. Because the
ending approaches. The testing begins.
DOCTOR: Testing of what?
DAVROS: The Reality bomb.
DALEK: Prisoners will stand in the designated area.
(One woman falls to her knees.)
DALEK: You will stand!
WOMAN: I can't.
DALEK: You will stand!
WOMAN: I can't. Please!
(Sarah spots a nearby door and runs to it.)
DALEK: On your feet. On your feet!
(She opens it with her sonic lipstick.)
SARAH: (sotto) Mickey! Mickey!
MICKEY: (sotto) Jackie!
(Mickey follows Sarah, but Jackie is with the woman.)
DALEK: Prisoners will stand in the designated area.
MICKEY: We can't just leave her.
SARAH: No, Mickey. Wait!
(A Dalek glides in front of the bulkhead door.)
WOMAN: What does it mean? What are they testing? What are they going to
(There is a big green glowing thing above them.)
JACKIE: I reckon it's that thing there.
RED DALEK: Testing calibration of Reality bomb.
Firing in ten rels. Nine, eight, seven
DAVROS: Behold. The apotheosis of my genius.
(Davros turns on a screen showing the holding area.)
RED DALEK [OC]: Four, three, two, one, zero.
RED DALEK: Activate planetary alignment field.
NEW DOCTOR: It's the planets. The twenty seven
(The planets start to glow.)
DOCTOR: That's Z-neutrino energy, flattened by the alignment of the
planets into a single string. No, Davros. Davros, you can't! You can't!
NEW DOCTOR: Single string Z-neutrinos compressed.
(Beep, beep, beep!)
MICKEY: Thirty minutes. It's recharged!
(Mickey shouts to Jackie through the glass porthole
in the door.)
MICKEY: (sotto) It's recharged! It's recharged! Use it!
JACKIE: I'm so sorry.
(Jackie vanishes and reappears with Mickey. They watch as the rest of
the prisoners gently atomise from the head downwards.)
DALEK: Test completed.
DONNA: What was it? Doctor, what did it do?
ROSE: Doctor, what happened?
DAVROS: Electrical energy, Miss Tyler. Every atom in existence is bound
by an electrical field. The Reality bomb cancels it out. Structure
falls apart. That test was focused on the prisoners alone. Full
transmission will dissolve every form of matter.
ROSE: The stars are going out.
DOCTOR: The twenty seven planets. They become one vast transmitter,
blasting that wavelength.
DAVROS: Across the entire universe. Never stopping, never faltering,
never fading. People and planets and stars will become dust, and the
dust will become atoms, and the atoms will become nothing. And the
wavelength will continue, breaking through the Rift at the heart of the
Medusa Cascade into every dimension, every parallel, every single
corner of creation. This is my ultimate victory, Doctor! The
destruction of reality itself!
RED DALEK: Prepare for universal detonation. The
fleet will gather at the Crucible. All Daleks will return to shelter
from the cataclysm. We will become the only life forms in existence.
SYLVIA: Look, they're leaving. Dad, they're going.
The Daleks are going!
WILF: Going where, though? And Donna's still out there. It's not over
(Jack rolls through a panel in the wall behind
Sarah, Jackie and Mickey.)
JACK: Just my luck. I climb through two miles of ventilation shafts,
chasing life signs on this thing, and who do I find? Mickey Mouse.
MICKEY: You can talk, Captain Cheesecake.
(Mickey and Jack hug.)
JACK: Good to see you. And that's Beefcake.
MICKEY: And that's enough hugging.
JACK: We meet at last, Miss Smith.
SARAH: There is something we can do. You've got to understand. I have a
son down there on Earth. He's only fourteen years old. I've brought
(Sarah holds up a sparkling gem on a chain.)
SARAH: It was given to me by a Verron Soothsayer. He said, this is for
the End of Days.
JACK: Is that a Warp Star?
MICKEY: Going to tell me what a Warp Star is?
JACK: A warpfold conjugation trapped in a carbonised shell. It's an
explosion, Mickey. An explosion waiting to happen.
ANNA [on screen]: This is Osterhagen Station Five.
Are you receiving, Station One?
MARTHA: I've got you. That makes three of us, and three is all we need.
(In the People's Republic of China.)
ANNA: My name is Anna Zhou, what's yours?
MARTHA [OC]: Martha Jones.
MARTHA: What about you, Station Four? You never
LIBERIA [on screen]: I don't want my name on this, given what we're
about to do.
ANNA [on screen]: So what happens now? Do we do it?
MARTHA: No. Not yet.
ANNA [on screen]: UNIT instructions say, once three Osterhagen Stations
MARTHA: Yeah, but I've got a higher authority, way above UNIT. And
there's one more thing the Doctor would do.
(He builds a gizmo.)
DONNA: So what is this thing?
NEW DOCTOR: It's our only hope. A Z-neutrino biological inversion
DONNA: Yeah. Earth girl, remember?
NEW DOCTOR: Davros said he built those Daleks out of himself. His
genetic code runs through the entire race. If I can use this to lock
the Crucible's transmission onto Davros himself
DONNA: It destroys the Daleks?
NEW DOCTOR: Biggest backfire in history.
DALEK: Incoming transmission. Origin Planet Earth.
RED DALEK: Display!
MARTHA [on screen]: This is Martha Jones, representing the Unified
Intelligence Taskforce, on behalf of the human race.
RED DALEK: Send transmission to the Vault. Continue to monitor.
MARTHA [on screen]: This message is for the Dalek
Crucible. Repeat. Can you hear me?
DOCTOR: Put me through.
DAVROS: It begins As Dalek Caan foretold.
CAAN: The Children of Time will gather, and one of them will die.
DOCTOR: Stop saying that. Put me through!
MARTHA [on screen]: Doctor! I'm sorry, I had to.
DAVROS: Oh, but the Doctor is powerless. My prisoner. State your
MARTHA: I've got the Osterhagen Key. Leave this
planet and its people alone
MARTHA [on screen]: Or I'll use it.
DOCTOR: Osterhagen what? What's an Osterhagen Key?
MARTHA [on screen]: There's a chain of twenty five nuclear warheads
placed in strategic points beneath the Earth's crust. If I use the key,
they detonate and the Earth gets ripped apart.
DOCTOR: What? Who invented that? Well, someone called Osterhagen, I
suppose. Martha, are you insane?
MARTHA: The Osterhagen Key is to be used if the
suffering of the human race is so great, so without hope, that this
becomes the final option.
DOCTOR: That's never an option.
MARTHA: Don't argue with me, Doctor!
MARTHA [on screen]: Because it's more than that.
Now, I reckon the Daleks need
MARTHA: These twenty seven planets for something.
But what if it becomes twenty six?
MARTHA [on screen]: What happens then? Daleks?
Would you risk it?
ROSE: She's good.
MARTHA [on screen]: Who's that?
ROSE: My name's Rose. Rose Tyler.
MARTHA: Oh, my God. He found you.
DALEK 2: Second transmission, internal.
RED DALEK: Display.
JACK [on screen]: Captain Jack Harkness, calling all Dalek boys and
(There are wires attached to the Warp Star now.)
JACK: Are you receiving me?
JACK [on screen]: Don't send in your goons, or I'll
set this thing off.
ROSE: He's still alive. Oh, my god. That, that's my mum.
DOCTOR [OC]: And Mickey. Captain, what are you
JACK: I've got a Warp Star wired into the mainframe.
JACK [on screen]: I break this shell, the entire
Crucible goes up.
DOCTOR: You can't! Where did you get a Warp Star?
SARAH: From me.
SARAH: We had no choice. We saw what happened to
DAVROS: Impossible. That face.
DAVROS [OC]: After all these years.
SARAH: Davros. It's been quite a while. Sarah Jane Smith. Remember?
DAVROS: Oh, this is meant to be. The circle of Time
is closing. You were there
DAVROS [OC]: On Skaro at the very beginning of my
SARAH: And I've learnt how to fight since
then. You let the Doctor go, or this Warp Star
SARAH [on screen]: It gets opened.
JACK [on screen]: I'll do it.
JACK: Don't imagine I wouldn't.
ROSE: Now that's what I call a ransom. Doctor?
DAVROS: And the prophecy unfolds.
CAAN: The Doctor's soul is revealed. See him. See the heart of him.
DAVROS: The man who abhors violence, never carrying a gun.
DAVROS [OC]: But this is the truth, Doctor. You
take ordinary people
DAVROS: And you fashion them into weapons.
DAVROS [OC]: Behold your Children of Time
DAVROS: Transformed into murderers. I made the
Daleks, Doctor. You made this.
DOCTOR: They're trying to help.
DAVROS: Already I have seen them sacrifice today, for their beloved
Doctor. The Earth woman who fell opening the Subwave Network.
DOCTOR: Who was that?
ROSE: Harriet Jones. She gave her life to get you here.
DAVROS: How many more? Just think. How many have died in your name?
(A lot, and that's just in these few modern series, including River
Song and his daughter, although we know better.)
DAVROS: The Doctor. The man who keeps running, never looking back
because he dare not, out of shame. This is my final victory, Doctor. I
have shown you yourself.
RED DALEK: Enough. Engage defence zero five.
MARTHA: It's the Crucible or the Earth.
DALEK 3: Transmat engaged.
(She drops the key as the transmat snatches her away. Jack drops the
Warp Star as he and his group also vanish.)
JACK: I've got you. It's all right.
DOCTOR: Don't move, all of you. Stay still.
(The Doctor's hand touches the forcefield around him, lighting it up.)
DAVROS: Guard them! On your knees, all of you. Surrender!
DOCTOR: Do as he says.
ROSE: Mum, I told you not to.
JACKIE: Yeah, but I couldn't leave you.
DAVROS: The final prophecy is in place. The Doctor and his children,
all gathered as witnesses. Supreme Dalek, the time has come. Now,
detonate the Reality bomb!
(An iris in the planetoid cum spaceship opens to
reveal the green bomb.)
RED DALEK: Activate planetary alignment field.
(The planets glow.)
RED DALEK: Universal Reality detonation in two hundred rels.
DOCTOR: You can't, Davros! Just listen to me! Just
DAVROS: Ah, ha, ha, ha! Nothing can stop the detonation. Nothing and no
(The gizmo is ready, and it looks like a gun.)
NEW DOCTOR: Ready? Maximum power!
DOCTOR: But that's
(The Tardis materialises and the new Doctor appears in the doorway.)
(Then he runs across the floor.)
(Davros zaps the new Doctor. He drops the gizmo in pain.)
DAVROS: Activate holding cell.
(Donna runs out of the Tardis and grabs the gizmo.)
DONNA: Doctor! I've got it. But I don't know what to do!
(Davros zaps Donna, sending her flying backwards. Once again the gizmo
drops to the floor.)
DOCTOR: Donna! Donna! Are you all right, Donna?
DAVROS: Destroy the weapon.
(A Dalek obeys.)
DAVROS: I was wrong about your warriors, Doctor. They are pathetic.
ROSE: How comes there are two of you?
DOCTOR: Human biological metacrisis. Never mind that. Now we've got no
way of stopping the Reality Bomb.
RED DALEK: Detonation in twenty rels. Nineteen.
DAVROS: Stand witness, Time Lord. Stand witness,
humans. Your strategies have failed, your weapons are useless, and. Oh.
The end of the universe has come.
RED DALEK [OC]: Nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one.
(An alarm sounds.)
DONNA: Mmm, closing all Z-neutrino relay loops using an internalised
synchronous back-feed reversal loop. That button there.
(She presses a button on the panel she was thrown against.)
DALEK 3: System in shutdown.
DALEK 2: Detonation negative.
RED DALEK: Explain. Explain. Explain!
DOCTOR: Donna, you can't even change a plug.
DONNA: Do you want to bet, Time Boy?
DAVROS: You'll suffer for this.
(Donna lifts a lever and Davros' electrical zap travels up his arm.)
DONNA: Oh, bio-electric dampening field with a retrograde field arc
DAVROS: Exterminate her!
DALEKS: Exterminate. Exterminate. Exterminate.
(Donna works more controls on the panel.)
DALEK: Weapons non-functional.
DONNA: Phwor. Macrotransmission of a K-filter wavelength blocking Dalek
weaponry in a self-replicating energy blindfold matrix.
DOCTOR: How did you work that out? You're
NEW DOCTOR: Time Lord. Part Time Lord.
DONNA: Part human. Oh, yes. That was a two-way biological metacrisis.
Half Doctor, half Donna.
DOCTOR: The Doctor Donna. Just like the Ood said, remember? They saw it
coming. The Doctor Donna.
DONNA: Holding cells deactivated. And seal the Vault. Well, don't just
stand there, you skinny boys in suits. Get to work.
DAVROS: Stop them! Get them away from the controls.
DONNA: And spin.
(The Daleks spin around on the spot.)
DALEK: Help me. Help me!
DONNA: And the other way.
NEW DOCTOR: What did you do?
DONNA: Trip switch circuit-breaker in the psychokinetic threshold
NEW DOCTOR: But that's brilliant!
DOCTOR: Why did we never think of that?
DONNA: Because you two were just Time Lords, you dumbos, lacking that
little bit of human. That gut instinct that comes hand in hand with
Planet Earth. I can think of ideas you two couldn't dream of in a
million years. Ah, the universe has been waiting for me. Now, let's
send that trip switch all over the ship. Did I ever tell you, best temp
in Chiswick? Hundred words per minute.
NEW DOCTOR: Ha!
DALEK: System malfunction.
DALEK 2: Motor casing interference.
RED DALEK: What is happening? Explain!
(Jack runs into the Tardis.)
DONNA: Come on then, boys. We've got twenty seven planets to send home.
DAVROS: Stop this at once!
(Jack comes out of the Tardis with the honking big guns.)
DAVROS: You will desist!
(Mickey points his gun at Davros, point blank range.)
MICKEY: Just stay where you are, mister.
JACK: Out of the way.
(He pushes a spinning Dalek down a corridor, while Sarah and Rose
manhandle another one.)
SARAH: Good to see you again.
ROSE: Oh, you too.
DONNA: Ready? And reverse.
(Donna and the Doctors pull out pairs of rods, and the planets
disappear one by one.)
DOCTOR: Off you go, Clom.
NEW DOCTOR: Back home, Adipose Three.
DONNA: Shallacatop, Pyrovillia and the Lost Moon of Poosh. Sorted. Ha!
NEW DOCTOR: Ha!
DOCTOR: We need more power!
ROSE: Is anyone going to tell us what's going on?
DONNA: He poured all his regeneration energy into his spare hand. I
touched the hand, and he grew out of that but that fed back into me.
But, it just stayed dormant in my head till the synapses got that
little extra spark, kicking them into life. Thank you, Davros! Part
human, part Time Lord. And I got the best bit of the Doctor. I got his
SARAH: So there's three of you?
ROSE: Three Doctors?
JACK: I can't tell you what I'm thinking right now.
DOCTOR: You're so unique the timelines were converging on you. Human
being with a Time Lord brain.
DAVROS: But you promised me, Dalek Caan. Why did you not foresee this?
DOCTOR: Oh, I think he did. Something's been manipulating the timelines
for ages, getting Donna Noble to the right place at the right time.
CAAN: This would always have happened. I only helped, Doctor.
DAVROS: You betrayed the Daleks.
CAAN: I saw the Daleks. What we have done, throughout time and space, I
saw the truth of us, Creator, and I decreed, no more!
RED DALEK: I will descend to the Vault.
JACK: Heads up!
RED DALEK: Davros, you have betrayed us.
DAVROS: It was Dalek Caan.
RED DALEK: The Vault will be purged. You will all be exterminated.
(The Red Dalek zaps the control panel.)
JACK: Like I was saying, feel this!
(Jack fires an extended pulse from his big gun and the Red Dalek
DOCTOR: Oh, we've lost the magnetron. And there's only one planet left.
Oh, guess which one. But we can use the Tardis.
(The Doctor runs into the Tardis.)
NEW DOCTOR: Holding Earth stability. Maintaining atmospheric shell.
CAAN: The prophecy must complete.
DAVROS: Don't listen to him.
CAAN: I have seen the end of everything Dalek, and you must make it
NEW DOCTOR: He's right. Because with or without a Reality bomb, this
Dalek Empire's big enough to slaughter the cosmos. They've got to be
DONNA: Just, just wait for the Doctor.
NEW DOCTOR: I am the Doctor. Maximising Dalekanium power feeds.
Blasting them back!
(Daleks start exploding all over the Crucible and all over the Medusa
Cascade. The Doctor runs out of the Tardis.)
DOCTOR: What have you done?
NEW DOCTOR: Fulfilling the prophecy.
(The Dalek explodes and the bullets all fall to the
GWEN: There goes the Time Lock.
DOCTOR: Do you know what you've done? Now get in
the Tardis! Everyone! All of you, inside! Run!
DOCTOR [OC]: In! In! In! In!
NEW DOCTOR: Sarah Jane! Rose! Jackie! Jack! Mickey!
(Explosions are starting to wreck the Vault.)
DOCTOR: Davros? Come with me. I promise I can save you.
DAVROS: Never forget, Doctor, you did this. I name you. Forever, you
are the Destroyer of the Worlds!
(A wall of flames leaps up and Davros gurgles his last scream.)
CAAN: One will still die.
DOCTOR: And off we go.
(The Tardis dematerialises. The Crucible goes KaBOOM!)
SARAH: But what about the Earth? It's stuck in the wrong part of space.
DOCTOR: I'm on it. Torchwood Hub, this is the Doctor. Are you receiving
GWEN: Loud and clear.
GWEN [on scanner]: Is Jack there?
DOCTOR: Can't get rid of him. Jack, what's her name?
JACK: Gwen Cooper.
DOCTOR: Tell me, Gwen Cooper,
DOCTOR [on screen]: Are you from an old Cardiff
GWEN: Yes, all the way back to the eighteen hundreds.
DOCTOR: Ah, thought so. Spatial genetic
ROSE: Oh, yeah.
DOCTOR: Yeah, it's a funny old world. Now, Torchwood, I want you to
open up that
DOCTOR [on screen]: Rift Manipulator. Send all the
power to me.
IANTO [on scanner]: Doing it now, sir.
DONNA: What's that for?
DOCTOR: It's a tow rope. Now then. Sarah, what was your son's name?
SARAH: Luke. He's called Luke. And the computer's called Mister Smith.
DOCTOR: Calling Luke and Mister Smith.
[Sarah Jane's home]
DOCTOR [OC]: This is the Doctor. Come on, Luke.
Shake a leg.
LUKE: Is Mum there?
DOCTOR: Oh, she's fine and dandy.
SARAH: Yes! Yes!
DOCTOR: Now, Mister Smith, I want you to harness the Rift power and
loop it around the Tardis. You got that?
MR SMITH [OC]: I regret I will need remote access to Tardis base code
DOCTOR: Oh, blimey, that's going to take a while.
SARAH: No, no, no. Let me. K9, out you come!
[Sarah Jane's home]
(K9 beams in beside Luke.)
K9: Affirmative, Mistress.
DOCTOR [OC]: Oh! Oh ho! Oh, good dog!
DOCTOR: K9, give Mister Smith the base code.
[Sarah Jane's home]
K9: Master. Tardis base code now being transferred.
K9 [OC]: The process is simple.
DOCTOR: Now then, you lot. Sarah, hold that down. Mickey, you hold
that. Because you know why this Tardis always is always rattling about
the place? Rose? That, there. It's designed to have six pilots, and I
have to do it single handed. Martha, keep that level. But not any more.
Jack, there you go. Steady that. Now we can fly this thing. No, Jackie.
No, no. Not you. Don't touch anything. Just stand back. Like it's meant
to be flown. We've got the Torchwood Rift looped around the Tardis by
Mister Smith, and we're
going to fly Planet Earth back home. Right then. Off we go.
(The Tardis takes the strain on the tow rope, then pulls Earth out of
the Cascade. Everyone on Earth hangs on for the ride. Donna walks
around the console, supervising the flight.)
DONNA: That's really good, Jack. I think you're the best.
(The Tardis drops the Earth off by the Moon, and everyone celebrates.)
JACKIE: Good job!
(Donna pulls Jack off Sarah and hugs him herself. On Earth, the news
tickers report the obvious, and fireworks celebrations happen without
any set up or planning whatsoever.)
(Church bells are ringing a celebratory change.)
SARAH: You know, you act like such a lonely man. But look at you.
You've got the biggest family on Earth.
(Sarah and the Doctor hug.)
SARAH: Oh! Got to go. He's only fourteen. It's a long story. And thank
(Donna is phoning home.)
DONNA: Yeah, I'm fine. Are you all right?
MICKEY: I'm going to miss you more than anyone.
JACKIE: What do you mean? The Doctor's going to take us home, isn't he?
MICKEY: Well, that's the point.
(The Doctor unmends Jack's teleport bracelet.)
DOCTOR: I told you, no teleport. And, Martha, get rid of that
Osterhagen thing, eh? Save the world one more time.
MARTHA: Consider it done.
(They both salute the Doctor, and he returns it. Jack and Martha walk
JACK: You know, I'm not sure about UNIT these days. Maybe there's
something else you could be doing?
(Mickey comes out of the Tardis.)
DOCTOR: Oi, where are you going?
MICKEY: Well, I'm not stupid. I can work out what happens next. And
hey, I had a good time in that parallel world, but my gran passed away.
Nice and peaceful. She spent her last years living in a mansion.
There's nothing there for me now, certainly not Rose.
DOCTOR: What will you do?
MICKEY: Anything. Brand new life. Just you watch. See you, boss. Hey,
(Mickey catches up with Jack and Martha.)
JACK: Oh. Thought I'd got rid of you.
DOCTOR: Just time for one last trip. Dårlig Ulv
Stranden. Better known as
[Dårlig Ulv Stranden]
(The Tardis materialises on the beach of Bad Wolf
Bay. The New Doctor and Jackie are first out.)
JACKIE: Oh, fat lot of good this is. Back of beyond. Bloody Norway? I'm
have to phone your father. He's on the nursery run. I was pregnant, do
you remember? Had a baby boy.
NEW DOCTOR: Oh, brilliant. What did you call him?
NEW DOCTOR: Really?
JACKIE: No, you plum. He's called Tony.
ROSE: Hold on, this is the parallel universe, right?
DOCTOR: You're back home.
DONNA: And the walls of the world are closing again, now that the
Reality Bomb never happened. It's dimensional retroclosure. See, I
really get that stuff now.
ROSE: No, but I spent all that time trying to find you. I'm not going
DOCTOR: But you've got to. Because we saved the universe, but at a
cost. And the cost is him. He destroyed the Daleks. He committed
genocide. He's too dangerous to be left on his own.
NEW DOCTOR: You made me.
DOCTOR: Exactly. You were born in battle, full of blood and anger and
revenge. Remind you of someone? That's me, when we first met. And you
made me better. Now you can do the same for him.
ROSE: But he's not you.
DOCTOR: He needs you. That's very me.
DONNA: But it's better than that, though. Don't you see what he's
trying to give you? Tell her. Go on.
NEW DOCTOR: I look like him and I think like him. Same memories, same
thoughts, same everything. Except I've only got one heart.
ROSE: Which means?
NEW DOCTOR: I'm part human. Specifically, the aging part. I'll grow old
and never regenerate. I've only got one life, Rose Tyler. I could spend
it with you, if you want.
ROSE: You'll grow old at the same time as me?
NEW DOCTOR: Together.
(The Tardis time motor revs.)
DOCTOR: We've got to go. This reality is sealing itself off for ever.
ROSE: But, it's still not right, because the Doctor's still you.
DOCTOR: And I'm him.
ROSE: All right. Both of you, answer me this. When I last stood on this
beach, on the worst day of my life, what was the last thing you said to
me? Go on, say it.
DOCTOR: I said, Rose Tyler.
ROSE: Yeah, and how was that sentence going to end?
DOCTOR: Does it need saying?
ROSE: And you, Doctor? What was the end of that sentence?
(The new Doctor whispers the three little words in Rose's ear, and she
kisses him. The Doctor and Donna take the opportunity to get into the
Tardis. It dematerialises.)
DONNA: I thought we could try the planet Felspoon.
Just because. What a good name, Felspoon. Apparently, it's got
mountains that sway in the breeze. Mountains that move. Can you
DOCTOR: And how do you know that?
DONNA: Because it's in your head. And if it's in your head, it's in
DOCTOR: And how does that feel?
DONNA: Brilliant! Fantastic! Molto bene! Great big universe, packed
into my brain. You know you could fix that chameleon circuit if you
just tried hotbinding the fragment links and superseding the binary,
binary, binary, binary, binary, binary, binary, binary, binary, binary,
binary, binary, binary, binary. (gasp) I'm fine. Nah, never mind
Felspoon. You know who I'd like to meet? Charlie Chaplin. I bet he's
great, Charlie Chaplin. Shall we do that? Shall we go and see Charlie
Chaplin? Shall we? Charlie Chaplin? Charlie Chester. Charlie Brown. No,
he's fiction. Friction, fiction, fixing, mixing, Rickston, Brixton.
(This time it hurts.)
DONNA: Oh, my God.
DOCTOR: Do you know what's happening?
DOCTOR: There's never been a human Time Lord metacrisis before now. And
you know why.
DONNA: Because there can't be. I want to stay.
DOCTOR: Look at me. Donna, look at me.
DONNA: I was going to be with you forever.
DOCTOR: I know.
DONNA: The rest of my life, travelling in the Tardis. The Doctor Donna.
No. Oh my god. I can't go back. Don't make me go back. Doctor, please,
please don't make me go back.
DOCTOR: Donna. Oh, Donna Noble. I am so sorry. But we had the best of
DOCTOR: The best. Goodbye.
DONNA: No, no, no. Please. Please. No. No.
(The Doctor mind melds with Donna and takes her memories away.)
(Donna passes out.)
(There is a knocking at the door.)
WILF: That must be her. Donna?
(The Tardis is parked across the road. The Doctor is kneeling by the
door, holding the
DOCTOR: Help me.
WILF: Donna? Donna?
(They lay Donna on her bed, then go downstairs. A thunderstorm rolls
DOCTOR: She took my mind into her own head. But
that's a Time Lord consciousness. All that knowledge, it was killing
WILF: But she'll get better now?
DOCTOR: I had to wipe her mind completely. Every trace of me, or the
Tardis, anything we did together, anywhere we went, had to go.
WILF: All those wonderful things she did.
DOCTOR: I know. But that version of Donna is dead. Because if she
remembers, just for a second, she'll burn up. You can never tell her.
You can't mention me or any of it for the rest of her life.
SYLVIA: But the whole world's talking about it. We travelled across
DOCTOR: It'll just be a story. One of those Donna Noble stories, where
she missed it all again.
WILF: But she was better with you.
SYLVIA: Don't say that.
WILF: No, she was.
DOCTOR: I just want you to know there are worlds out there, safe in the
sky because of her. That there are people living in the light, and
singing songs of Donna Noble, a thousand million light years away. They
will never forget her, while she can never remember. And for one
moment, one shining moment, she was the most important woman in the
whole wide universe.
SYLVIA: She still is. She's my daughter.
DOCTOR: Then maybe you should tell her that once in a while.
DONNA: I was asleep on my bed in my clothes, like a flipping kid! What
do you let me do that for? Don't mind me. Donna.
(Donna checks her mobile.)
DOCTOR: John Smith.
SYLVIA: Mister Smith was just leaving.
DONNA: My phone's gone mad. Thirty two texts. Veena's gone barmy. She's
saying planets in the sky. What have I missed now? Nice to meet you.
(Donna leaves the room.)
SYLVIA: As I said, I think you should go.
(Donna is on the phone.)
DONNA: How thick do you think I am? Planets. Tell you what that was,
dumbo. That's those two for one lagers you gets down the offy because
you fancy that little man in there with the goatee. Ha ha! Yes, you do.
I've seen you.
DOCTOR: Donna? I was just going.
DONNA: Yeah, see you. I tell you what though, you're wasting your time
with that one, because Susie Mair, she went on that dating site, and
she saw him. No, no, no, no. Listen, listen, this is important. Susie
Mair wouldn't lie. Not unless it was about calories. Ha ha ha!
[Outside the Nobles' home]
(It is pouring with rain.)
DOCTOR: Ah. You'll have quite a bit of this. Atmospheric disturbance.
Still, it'll pass. Everything does. Bye then, Wilfred.
WILF: Oh, Doctor? What about you now? Who've you got? I mean, all those
friends of yours.
DOCTOR: They've all got someone else. Still, that's fine. I'm fine.
WILF: I'll watch out for you, sir.
DOCTOR: You can't ever tell her.
WILF: No, no, no. But every night, Doctor, when it gets dark, and the
stars come out, I'll look up on her behalf. I'll look up at the sky,
and think of you.
DOCTOR: Thank you.
(Soaked to the skin, the Doctor squelches to the Tardis. Wilf salutes
as it dematerialises.)
