A young man runs across a barren industrial field, and emerges near a large warehouse to see a tall blue police box standing alone. As if he recognises it he reaches out to touch the door but as he does he hears a scream from inside the warehouse, a young girl calling out to a man called the Doctor; telling him to look out.

He runs inside to hear the voices of both the Doctor and the young girl calling out to each other in order to find something. The young man runs to try and find them and emerges in a long corridor with a door at one end. Slowly he approaches as he hears a clanging sound coming from inside. He reaches for the handle and pulls it open, revealing a huge snarling beast behind.

Sometime later, present day: the young man is sitting before a camcorder, imitating what happened when he opened the door some time before. He looks straight into the camera and tells his would be audience that if they thought that was the most exciting day of his life, then wait to hear the rest. “Oh boy.” Continue reading

On a windy hillside a procession of monks advance towards a stately home, pulling with them a large carriage. When they arrive at the residence the servants meet them with a frosty reception, and after the Steward dismisses their demands for the house to be given to them, a fight ensues.

Soon the household is invaded and the rest of the servants are rounded up and thrown in the cellar, where the content of the carriage is being held. Father Angelo, the leader of the monks, enters and prays that God has mercy on his soul for what he is about to do. He removes the cloth covering the cage before him and the servants scream in terror… Continue reading

Headmaster Finch walks the staircases and corridors of his school, before approaching his office only to find a young girl sitting outside. She explains that she is ill with a headache and Matron has sent her to see him. He asks why she cannot just go home and she explains she lives in Ambrose Hall, the local orphanage. He sympathises and ushers her inside his office. It’s nearly time for lunch. As he closes the door he takes a peek back outside before closing it completely. The shadows through the frosted glass window shift and change, as the girl lets out a scream.

Elsewhere in the schoolchildren are rushing to lessons at the sound of the bell. Some of them pile into a science lab, followed by their teacher. He walks to his desk and sets down his bag before greeting his students. It’s the Doctor. Continue reading

In a laboratory in a place unknown, a blinding light silhouettes a robotic figure amongst the pieces of machinery. A scientist working in the lab informs his superior that ‘it’ is working. The other man, seated in the shadows, explains that that is not the correct terminology. He moves forward on a large motorised wheel chair and tells him: this is not a machine. The scientist corrects himself. It’s alive.

The man in the chair asks if the creature can hear him. The scientist explains that it may be in a state of shock; the brain has been welded to the exoskeleton. The seated man marvels at his new creation: skin of metal, and a body that will never age. He envies it. He turns to face it and asks if it knows him. He orders it to answer and asks again. Slowly the creature answers, he is John Lumic. Lumic marvels at what stands before him, his child. It is ready, he tells his friend Dr Kendrick to mark this day, that are blessed.

Yet Kendrick explains this is a new form of life and they must inform Geneva of it’s existence, it contravenes the Bio-Convention. They must ratify it. However Lumic knows they will never allow this creature life, and decides he shall not apply to ratification. Kendrick apologises but it is his duty to inform them. Lumic stares at him and asks how he shall do that from beyond the grave. Kendrick does not understand, but it is too late to escapes. The hazy shape of the creature has crept up behind him and on Lumic’s orders it reaches for Kendrick’s neck, electrocuting him. He writhes in agony and falls to the ground.

Lumic turns away and activates a communication link. He calls for his captain to contact all staff and explain they have a new destination. “Set sail for Great Britain.” Continue reading

As the Cybermen prepare to attack the Doctor pulls a glowing orb from his pocket. He aims it at the steel warriors and immediately a beam of energy flies out at them. They are each hit by the beam and begin to disintegrate. The group of hostages begin to run and are saved by Mrs Moore, in the blue van belonging to the Preachers.

They begin to climb inside but Pete makes a break for the house. The Doctor stops him but he protests that he must save Jackie. He reasons that anyone inside the house will be dead, and all he can do is to not let her die in vein. He runs back to the van and the Doctor joins him, stopping only to pull Rose away from the house, reminding her that the Jackie in this universe is not her mother. They join the others inside the van and they pull away, Mrs Moore screeching that she’s never seen such a slow getaway in her life. Continue reading

It is late at night and a storm is brewing outside Mr Magpie’s electronics shop. He is sitting in the dark writing, whilst a television set stands in the corner, displaying a female newsreader addressing the camera. As she signs off, announcing that programming is over for the day, her image is replaced by the broadcaster logo. Magpie leans away from his work, solemnly announcing he is two hundred pounds overdrawn, he needs a miracle. He tears the page from his book and throws it away, as the national anthem rings out from the television set.

Elsewhere, in another house in the street a family are sitting around the radio. As the grandmother sits and listens, the mother sews and the young son reads a magazine. The father of the family enters, announced as the ‘lord and master’ by the grandmother. He announces to his wife Rita that he is going out and his son turns to show him the magazine. He whines that he has already told him they are not getting a television but when the young man protests that everyone in the street is getting one, he comments that they might get one for the coronation. He turns and leaves, as the grandmother tells her grandson that she has heard that television rots your brains, turns it to soup and makes it pour out of your ears.

The father walks through the rain outside, past Magpie’s shop, which is struck by the aerial with red lightening. Inside Magpie is slumped asleep on the table, as the television sounds bleeping in the background. With a shock of light the screen comes to life and the female announcer appears again, calling to him. He awakens and turns to see her, commenting that he must be dreaming. She tells him he isn’t and so he deduces that he must be going mad. She comforts him, telling him he is fine, and asks him if he is sitting comfortably. “Then we’ll begin”. Rope like tendrils of red light snap forward from the screen and grab his face, as his features become blurred, sucked away from his head the announcer laughs… Continue reading
