DR WHO 50th Script OR A PLOY FOR HITS? DEFINITELY THE LATTER



In an ode of love to the next doctor being announced on a live show this weekend, I thought I would plump up some old fiction I wrote about two tears ago. Was for a interesting project that wasn't used in the end, but as I got paid, I had to wait a while to show it. Lovely contract with 24 months grace period! 

Any WHO.

Now seems the best time to show to the world. 

The 50th Anniversary Intro Scene Pitch 


Black Screen, 
Tardis Sound fades out......

We here four Heart Beats unveiling a 

CAPTION

“1000 Years Ago”

Fades to Black....The Black of Space

Four heartbeats in a Timelord Pattern.  
On each beat an image flickers on the screen of a planet unrecognizable, and disappears, as if being watched through an untuned television.....until eventually nothing

We see a pinprick of light in the center; we move towards it, the pinprick getting larger and larger with just the heart beats continuing. 

The pinprick becomes more encompassing and we see it is a bright light – fills the screen then we enter it/fall into it....

....The Vortex.

We are flying through the vortex  
Two seconds more, then a voice filled with bass and calm

“....His crime has been lost in time, whatever it even was. Yet no one believed he could escape them....perhaps that is why he himself chose to run....”

The Vortex comes to a split and we shoot to the left.  

“He was more than they had counted on....and for his part, more important than the rest of them combined......” 

The heart beat starts louder.....just the voice....and we exit the vortex to see Galiifrey
(Angrier) “Last Son of Gallifrey........”

We zoom into a red planet surrounded by sparks and plasma bursting in and out of life. Moving at a steady pace inwards we zoom low over vast fields of purple and yellow grassland to see hills in the distance covered in ice.

We continue the tracking shot inwards; towards a building, in the middle of a cityscape, vehicles moving in and out of the “port”.

We stop.....

The vehicles shimmer in and out of existence in front of us in front of this galactic port.
The ones that appear are in a huge selection of shapes and sizes – Horse Drawn carriage, Model T Ford, Sumerian Battle Cruiser, 1950’s Roswell craft. A huge cruiser appears above the others and shrinks to a third of its size. 
One appears as a waterfall and crashes onto the ground. The Water reforms into a Silver Orb
We turn and zoom away from the port towards another dirty white building in the same Gallifreyan style but it has the mark of Omega on its wall.
We slow down and move to window on the top floor, and we pause outside and move through the glass.....We realize the heart beat is coming from that room.
We cut...the man’s closed fills the screen...the heart beat louder.  
The heartbeat sounds stop and he opens his eye..... The image of Gallifrey flashes across the screen the same size and shape as his iris.
We cut....
Just to The man’s mouth, noble, high blood, he smiles
We pan out.....
A man who aged around 45 years old, sat in a comfy chair but deep in thought. He looks directly at the camera, and we see him;

The Doctor

He has slicked back, shoulder length, black hair which is heavily graying at the temples; he is sitting cross legged on the chair and is wearing a Black dress suit, with a knee length jacket.

He is the Doctor we know (as a viewer) from 50 years ago, but he is younger – he opens his palm and we realize it is not us he is looking at.

Camera shot changes to side to reveal room to reveal the room, a study with walls full of charts, and a model of Da Vinci’s Helicopter hangs from the ceiling.

A picture of the Angels is scrawled on the wall, a child moves inside the mirror on the side of the cabinet, all almost unseen.


We see the doctor holding his hand out and in front of it is a Time lord Cube.....We hear voices.............
Voices that we recognize........

The cube speaks

“Run...........”

A beat

“...

He stands calmly and straightens his outfit.....
Camera Changes to show him standing in front of his study wall.
A crescendo of voices from the Cube –

“RUN”..

He looks shocked.......but then smiles.

Pauses

Then....runs.
