When The Author crashes down into John Miller's life, bringing a horde of Gloff with him, nothing will be the same again. With John's help, The Author sets out on the quest to regain his memories...

This is another Doctor Who spin-off, but one I intended to actually film with a friend, though that sadly never happened.

Episodes 2, 4 and 5 are not included here because I did not write them. View table of contents...

1 RECAP OF PREVIOUS EPISODE.

CUT TO:

2 OPENING CREDITS.

CUT TO:

3 INVADER SPACESHIP.

INVADER
We are in orbit above Earth, 56.35
degrees North of the Equator and
2.42 degrees in the human term,
Longitude.

SUPREME INVADER
Above the Author?

INVADER
Indeed!

CUT TO:

4 HILL.

JOHN's ashes hit the ground.

THE AUTHOR
JOHN!!!

THE GHOST CREATURE moves closer to The Author.

Then, a blue beam hits The Author.

He is beamed up into space.

The Creature moves on to it's next victim.

PAN TO:

5 GALLIFRAX.

Fighting everywhere, THE GLOFF against THE invaderS.

INVADER
The Gloff resist! kill them
all! The prisoners must be
captured alive!

A Gloff fires at the invader. It has no effect.

INVADER
Kill!

The Gloff is killed.

CUT TO:

6 GEM'S CELL.

Gem cringes against the wall, while screaming and cries of
death can be heard.

PAN TO:

7 THE EXPERIMENTER'S CELL.

THE AUTHOR's Tardis materialises as a wooden crate.

The EXPERIMENTER steps out.

2 GLOFF have met him.

GLOFF
Due to the seriousness of the
current situation, your execution
will be moved to Gallifrey! Follow
us!

THE EXPERIMENTER
Fine by me.

He looks at the Tardis.

THE EXPERIMENTER
The Author calls that a Chameleon
Circuit? How pathetic.

GLOFF
Move!

THE EXPERIMENTER
Alright, alright...

They go.

PAN TO:

8 TIME LORD MEETING ROOM.

TIME LADY
Sir! Gallifrax, it's been
attacked!

The PRESIDENT isn't at all concerned by this.

PRESIDENT
Never mind that. How is Sanction
1,000, Project Earth doing?

TIME LADY
2 billion humans have been
collected sir.

PRESIDENT
Not enough!! Start converting the
captured humans into The Lost.

Pause.

TIME LADY
Yes, sir...

PRESIDENT
Oh, and... were the Author's
memories recovered?

TIME LADY
Yes, sir.

PRESIDENT
Good! I will have them!

CUT TO:

9 EVIL ROOM.

TIME LADY walks past the glass container. It is empty.

She pulls a lever.

Screaming.

It begins becoming full of jellyfish-like creatures,
moulding into vaguely humanoid shapes...

PAN OUT TO:

10 MEETING ROOM.

PRESIDENT laughs, like he has never laughed before.

PAN TO:

11 INVADER SPACESHIP.

THE AUTHOR is zapped onboard.

He is on the ground.

THE AUTHOR
What!? Where am I?

He looks up, and sees a invader. He cries out, and leaps
backwards.

INVADER
Halt!

He stops against the wall.

INVADER
You are our prisoner!

The Author gets up.

THE AUTHOR
Aha... The Invaders. That's what
you're called, isn't it? Not by
yourself at any rate, but for
everyone else... that's all they
know you as. Why are you here?

SUPREME INVADER
We are at war with the Time Lords.

The Author turns and faces The Supreme invader.

THE AUTHOR
Of course... Two of the mightiest
races of eternity, battling it
out... The Time War! But you have
to be stopped! Don't you
understand? In a war this big,
both races will be completely
eliminated!!

SUPREME INVADER
Our Strategy Computers state that
is 96% likely.

THE AUTHOR
Exactly! Sure, it'll be an
achievement for the Invaders to
have wiped out the Time Lords, but
your whole existence is centered
around invading and
domination! How will an unwinnable
war get you that?

SUPREME INVADER
And dominate we shall!

The ship beings shaking.

CUT TO:

12 EXT. SPACESHIP.

It flies away from Earth.

CUT TO:

13 INT. SPACESHIP.

SUPREME INVADER
I will be alone with The Author.

The other invaders back off.

Then, a wall comes down, splitting the room into two.

The Author is alone with The Supreme invader.

SUPREME INVADER
Bow your head.

The Author unwillingly does so.

The invader moves forward, and places it's arm... thing over
The Author's head.

The Author screams, then falls down.

SUPREME INVADER
Impossible! Your brain is working
at a negative 20% efficiency than
compared to an average Time Lord!

THE AUTHOR
Well... I'm not an average Time
Lord.

SUPREME INVADER
Explain!

THE AUTHOR
I lost my memories!

SUPREME INVADER
This is excellent, Author. Our
previous plan required us to force
you to help us, but now we can
bribe you.

THE AUTHOR
You want me to... help you? Well,
I guess there had to be a reason
you haven't killed me yet.

SUPREME INVADER
If you betray us, we will not
hesitate to kill you.

THE AUTHOR
I would expect nothing less. But
we both want the same thing, don't
we? To stop the Time Lords.

SUPREME INVADER
And you will have your memories
given to you. Do we have a deal?

THE AUTHOR
A deal with an invader? I never
thought that would happen. I also
didn't think I'd go to my home
planet for the first time in
memory, witness my favourite
species become extinct and my best
friend burst into flames. This
isn't a good day for normality,
don't you think?

SUPREME INVADER
Do you agree to the bargain?

THE AUTHOR
I agree. How can I help you?

SUPREME INVADER
You are both a genius and a Time
Lord. We want you to infiltrate
Gallifrey and assassinate the
President.

THE AUTHOR
Never. I won't kill.

SUPREME INVADER
We calculated you would take the
weaker option. In that case you
will sabotage the Chamber of The
Lost.

THE AUTHOR
What is the Chamber of The Lost?

SUPREME INVADER
You will find out in due
course. Leave.

It pushes the Author away with the arm thing. The Author
goes.

PAN TO:

14 A CORRIDOR IN GALLIFRAX.

Chaos! Fighting everywhere! invaderS and GLOFF, dead and
alive, in pieces and together, fighting it out. Oh, and the
Gloff are losing.

INVADER
6,780 Gloff killd! 5 invader
casualties!

It kills another Gloff.

INVADER
2,000,056 Prisoners captured! The
campaign is nearing it's end!

CUT TO:

15 GEM'S CELL.

The Door opens...

A invader moves in.

GEM gasps.

INVADER
To your feet!

Gem gets to her feet.

INVADER
If you follow me you can continue
to live.

Gem moves out, and follows the invader.

CUT TO:

16 CORRIDOR.

Gem joins a line of prisoners - some Time Lord, some alien,
there's even one MASSITHA there...

Until Gem is placed behind THE EXPERIMENTER.

GEM
You!!

The Experimenter turns around, smiling.

THE EXPERIMENTER
Unhappy to see me?

GEM
(sacrastically)
Oh, of course not, I mean you
didn't destroy my home planet or
anything!

THE EXPERIMENTER
In my defence, it was these guys I
was doing that to fight.

GEM
So, we're on the same side?

THE EXPERIMENTER
Unfortunately.

An invader moves through.

INVADER
These prisoners will be the
last. Then we shall initiate Total
Conquest! Follow me!

The people move, following the invader. However...

The Experimenter grabs Gem's arm, and makes a run for it.

INVADER
Stop them!

Nobody moves.

The invader kills someone nearby.

INVADER
Stop them or you will be killd!

Everyone runs to stop them.

CUT TO:

17 TELEPORT ROOM.

GEM and THE EXPERIMENTER rush in.

THE EXPERIMENTER
The invaders should have thought
about this a bit better! This
teleport room was right nearby!

He presses a button, and they teleport...

CUT TO:

18 GALLIFREY TELEPORT ROOM.

THE EXPERIMENTER and GEM appear.

THE EXPERIMENTER
And here we are... on Gallifrey!

GEM
Right. I need to find the Author,
where is he? You took him here!

THE EXPERIMENTER
Yeah, when we were enemies! I took
him to Earth earlier. His Tardis
has been taken to Gallifrax, so he
should be stranded on Earth.

GEM
Well let's go then.

THE EXPERIMENTER
Problem - my Tardis was
destroyed. Besides, who says you
get to make the orders?

GEM
Well what do you say we do?

THE EXPERIMENTER
Assassinate the President! Come
on!

PAN TO:

19 EVIL ROOM.

TIME LADY walks along the chambers. It is slightly similar
to the chambers on Yangama, but bluer.

She reaches a door. She reaches out a hand, and places it
on the steamed up window.

TIME LADY
Maybe... I don't know.

She turns away, doubtful.

TIME LADY
I feel... compelled to do
this. But it could get me killed!

She turns back.

TIME LADY
But the Ultimate Fate of the
Universe is more important than me.

SHe fiddles with the controls. The steam begins
evaporating.

She walks away.

PAN TO:

20 TIME LORD MEETING ROOM.

PRESIDENT
Aha! 80% of subjects have been
collected. Excellent, begin
converting them all!! Then, move
onto another planet... How about,
oh, I don't know... Skaro? Those
Dalek pests have it coming.

He laughs evilly.

PRESIDENT
Or maybe even the Hidden Home of
Invasion... The Lost will find it.

He then turns, and pulls out the BOOK OF MEMORIES.

And laughs more.

21 INT. INVADER SPACESHIP.

THE AUTHOR is standing, awkwardly. There are invaders
moving around, working.

The Author walks up to one of them.

THE AUTHOR
Tell me, invader... - Um, what's
your name?

INVADER
Unit
80.771.000.000.476.A/Gamma/invader

THE AUTHOR
Right, yes. How do you like being
an invader?

INVADER
Further obstruct my production and
I will kill you.

The Author backs off.

THE AUTHOR
Okay, okay, I was only asking!

He picks another invader.

THE AUTHOR
And how about you, invader... ?

INVADER
Unit 80.771.001-

THE AUTHOR
Yes, yes, I get the idea. And how
do you like-

SUPREME INVADER
(voice)
Author...

The wall moves upwards, revealing the supreme invader.

THE AUTHOR
Hello! Are we there yet?

SUPREME INVADER
Yes. We will teleport down
immediatly.

THE AUTHOR
We - what?

They teleport.

CUT TO:

22 TIME LORD MEETING ROOM.

THE AUTHOR and THE invaderS materialise.

INVADER
Kill the Time Lady!

It kills TIME LADY.

THE AUTHOR
Noo!

Then they stop.

Silence.

THE AUTHOR
Um... I don't wish to cause
conflict, but why aren't one of you
trying to kill the other?

The PRESIDENT laughs.

THE AUTHOR
Oh, no...

PRESIDENT
Oh, yes...

THE AUTHOR
Please, just once, can't things be
simple?

The President walks over to the invaders.

The Author backs away.

THE AUTHOR
Why?

THE PRESIDENT
We have an agreement.

THE AUTHOR
Like the one we had? Oh, you're in
for a tough reality check, Mr
President! The invaders don't make
deals!

The President sighs.

PRESIDENT AND SUPREME INVADER
Kill him.

The Author ducks, and runs out of the room, turning
RIGHT. A invader follows.

SUPREME INVADER
Why did you give my invader an
order? Explain!

PRESIDENT
I-

SUPREME INVADER
You are not in command of invaders!

PRESIDENT
I know, I-

SUPREME INVADER
Do not-

It turns.

GEM and THE EXPERIMENTER are at the doorway.

THE EXPERIMENTER
Right, bad timing. Run!

A invader appears behind them.

GEM
This way!

She runs into the EVIL ROOM.

THE EXPERIMENTER however, pulls out his disintegrater-

-And is killed before he can use it.

He falls to the ground, half dead.

THE EXPERIMENTER
You... You... I hate you...

PRESIDENT
(smiling)
Good. It wouldn't be fun if you
didn't.

The President stamps on his face.

CUT TO:

23 CORRIDOR, GALLIFREY.

THE AUTHOR is running, chased by an invader.

INVADER
You will die!

The Author runs into a TELEPORT ROOM.

CUT TO:

24 TELEPORT ROOM.

The Author runs in, and grabs the machinery.

The invader enters.

INVADER
Die!

THE AUTHOR
Sorry, not today!

He teleports away.

PAN TO:

25 TIME LORD MEETING ROOM.

SUPREME INVADER
Begin the Ultimate Invasion of
Gallifrax!

PRESIDENT laughs.

PRESIDENT
I never did like the Gloff - the
big brutes. But I must ask,
Supreme invader... The girl fled
into that room there. She won't be
of any danger, but maybe you aught
to kill her anyway?

Pause.

The President wishes he hadn't said that.

But...

SUPREME INVADER
I agree.

An invader goes into the Evil Room.

SUPREME INVADER
Countdown began to the destruction
of Gallifrax. 10... 9...

CUT TO:

26 GALLIFRAX CORRIDOR.

Bodies are everywhere. THE AUTHOR runs through them.

CUT TO:

27 TIME LORD MEETING ROOM.

INVADER
6, 5, 4...

SHOT OF PRESIDENT, SMILING.

INVADER
3, 2, 1...

CUT TO:

28 SPACE.

A Beam from the invader SPACESHIP hits Gallifrax. It
EXPLODES.

CUT TO:

29 TIME LORD MEETING ROOM.

Room shakes.

SUPREME INVADER
Gallifrax Destroyed.

President laughs.

A invader moves into the room.

INVADER
The Author has escaped to
Gallifrax!

The President looks at the Supreme invader, then back to the
invader.

Then laughs hysterically.

CUT TO:

30 EVIL ROOM.

Gem runs, because the invader is chasing her.

INVADER
Die!

Gem runs, and runs...

Until she hits JOHN. They grab onto each other and fall
against the wall.

GEM
John!

JOHN
Gem!

GEM
But, how?-

INVADER
Die!

It has them cornered!

JOHN
The Author told me about that...
It's... An invader!

INVADER
Correct. Die!

Vworp... Vworp... Woosh...

A WOODEN CRATE materialises around them.

INVADER
Tardis materialising around humans.

It fires more.

But the WOODEN CRATE dematerialises.

INVADER
Tardis escaped!

CUT TO:

31 INT. TARDIS.

GEM
Author!

AUTHOR
Gem! John!!

The Author pulls a lever.

THE AUTHOR
I barely got away, I left seconds
before they destroyed
Gallifrax. BUt more importantly...
John, you're alive?

JOHN
Apparently so.

THE AUTHOR
How!?

JOHN
I don't know. I remember being
possessed, then... Being
cold. Then I fell to the
ground. Then... Gem came running.

THE AUTHOR
Right... and, Gem?

GEM
I was taken to Gallifrax, but the
Experimenter helped me escape.

THE AUTHOR
Where is he now?

GEM
He... was killd.

The Author sighs.

THE AUTHOR
He'd be a great help, because I
haven't a clue what to do now...

PAN TO:

32 TIME LORD MEETING ROOM.

THE EXPERIMENTER's hand twitches.

PRESIDENT
What now?

SUPREME INVADER
We will follow the Author.

Beep Beep.

SUPREME INVADER
What was that?

An invader floats in.

INVADER
Our home planet is under attack!

SUPREME INVADER
What is the meaning of this?

INVADER
The Lost flew down from the Sky,
devouring all of us they could
find!

SUPREME INVADER
Could any be killd?

INVADER
No. Half the invaders have been
killd!

The Supreme invader turns to The President.

SUPREME INVADER
You planned this! The Deal was you
would use the Lost to conquer the
Universe after Earth has been
devoured, not our planet!

PRESIDENT
No, ple-

He is disintegrated.

The experimenter's hand falls, and the disintegrater falls
out. He is dead.

SUPREME INVADER
Time Lords are so inferior they
kill each other.

It moves over to the machinery.

SUPREME INVADER
The Lost are controlled by
this. Stop them! Stop them!!

PAN TO:

33 INT. TARDIS.

JOHN
Author, please explain this all to
me, because I haven't a clue what
is happening! Why did the
Asaecians take me over again?

THE AUTHOR
Don't you remember? You were
possessed by something else, and
that triggered the underlying
Asaecian inside you. It was
probably destroyed along with your
body.

GEM
But his body wasn't destroyed!

THE AUTHOR
Oh, it was... The image of your
remains hitting the ground... I've
never gone through the trauma of
losing a friend before...

He sits down.

THE AUTHOR
I'm sorry... I had to... had to
ignore it, and accept that you were
dead, because I had more to worry
about.

He gets up.

THE AUTHOR
But I am so glad you're not.

GEM
You're missing the obvious
question, guys! How did John
survive?

THE AUTHOR
Easy! That chamber he was in has
the answer! Somehow it picks up
the DNA of every person killed on
Earth and recreates their bodies on
Gallifrey. It was huge and went on
forever, it could easily house the
entire human race.

JOHN
But why?

THE AUTHOR
Something makes me want to say The
War Effort. Maybe it's what they
were doing on Yangama...

JOHN
Well we need to save them!

THE AUTHOR
But, those creatures on Earth, The
Lost, they called them... What are
they?

Pause.

JOHN
Author... Author... Author...

GEM
Oh no!

THE AUTHOR
Get back!

He moves to John.

THE AUTHOR
John, can you hear me?

JOHN
Yangama... Yangama... Yangama...

John walks to the controls and sets them for Yangama.

John then gasps, and falls to the floor.

THE AUTHOR
Whatever possessed him wants us to
go to Yangama... Maybe that's where
the answer lies!
