2 OPENING CREDITS.
3 INVADER SPACESHIP.
We are in orbit above Earth, 56.35
degrees North of the Equator and
2.42 degrees in the human term,
Above the Author?
JOHN’s ashes hit the ground.
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.
Fighting everywhere, THE GLOFF against THE invaderS.
The Gloff resist! kill them
all! The prisoners must be
A Gloff fires at the invader. It has no effect.
The Gloff is killed.
6 GEM’S CELL.
Gem cringes against the wall, while screaming and cries of
death can be heard.
7 THE EXPERIMENTER’S CELL.
THE AUTHOR’s Tardis materialises as a wooden crate.
The EXPERIMENTER steps out.
2 GLOFF have met him.
Due to the seriousness of the
current situation, your execution
will be moved to Gallifrey! Follow
Fine by me.
He looks at the Tardis.
The Author calls that a Chameleon
Circuit? How pathetic.
8 TIME LORD MEETING ROOM.
Sir! Gallifrax, it’s been
The PRESIDENT isn’t at all concerned by this.
Never mind that. How is Sanction
1,000, Project Earth doing?
2 billion humans have been
Not enough!! Start converting the
captured humans into The Lost.
Oh, and... were the Author’s
Good! I will have them!
9 EVIL ROOM.
TIME LADY walks past the glass container. It is empty.
She pulls a lever.
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.
11 INVADER SPACESHIP.
THE AUTHOR is zapped onboard.
He is on the ground.
What!? Where am I?
He looks up, and sees a invader. He cries out, and leaps
He stops against the wall.
You are our prisoner!
The Author gets up.
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?
We are at war with the Time Lords.
The Author turns and faces The Supreme invader.
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
Our Strategy Computers state that
is 96% likely.
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?
And dominate we shall!
The ship beings shaking.
12 EXT. SPACESHIP.
It flies away from Earth.
13 INT. SPACESHIP.
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.
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.
Impossible! Your brain is working
at a negative 20% efficiency than
compared to an average Time Lord!
Well... I’m not an average Time
I lost my memories!
This is excellent, Author. Our
previous plan required us to force
you to help us, but now we can
You want me to... help you? Well,
I guess there had to be a reason
you haven’t killed me yet.
If you betray us, we will not
hesitate to kill you.
I would expect nothing less. But
we both want the same thing, don’t
we? To stop the Time Lords.
And you will have your memories
given to you. Do we have a deal?
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?
Do you agree to the bargain?
I agree. How can I help you?
You are both a genius and a Time
Lord. We want you to infiltrate
Gallifrey and assassinate the
Never. I won’t kill.
We calculated you would take the
weaker option. In that case you
will sabotage the Chamber of The

You will find out in due

Chaos! Fighting everywhere! invaderS and GLOFF, dead and
alive, in pieces and together, fighting it out. Oh, and the
Gloff are losing.
6,780 Gloff killd! 5 invader
It kills another Gloff.
2,000,056 Prisoners captured! The
campaign is nearing it’s end!
15 GEM’S CELL.
The Door opens...
A invader moves in.
To your feet!
Gem gets to her feet.
If you follow me you can continue
Gem moves out, and follows the invader.
Gem joins a line of prisoners - some Time Lord, some alien,
there’s even one MASSITHA there...
Until Gem is placed behind THE EXPERIMENTER.
The Experimenter turns around, smiling.
Unhappy to see me?
Oh, of course not, I mean you
didn’t destroy my home planet or
In my defence, it was these guys I
was doing that to fight.
So, we’re on the same side?
An invader moves through.
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.
The invader kills someone nearby.
Stop them or you will be killd!
Everyone runs to stop them.
17 TELEPORT ROOM.
GEM and THE EXPERIMENTER rush in.
The invaders should have thought
about this a bit better! This
teleport room was right nearby!
He presses a button, and they teleport...
18 GALLIFREY TELEPORT ROOM.
THE EXPERIMENTER and GEM appear.
And here we are... on Gallifrey!
Right. I need to find the Author,
where is he? You took him here!
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.
Well let’s go then.
Problem - my Tardis was
destroyed. Besides, who says you
get to make the orders?
Well what do you say we do?
Assassinate the President! Come
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.
Maybe... I don’t know.
She turns away, doubtful.
I feel... compelled to do
this. But it could get me killed!
She turns back.
But the Ultimate Fate of the
Universe is more important than me.
SHe fiddles with the controls. The steam begins
She walks away.
20 TIME LORD MEETING ROOM.
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.
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.
Tell me, invader... - Um, what’s
Right, yes. How do you like being
Further obstruct my production and
I will kill you.
The Author backs off.
Okay, okay, I was only asking!
He picks another invader.
And how about you, invader... ?
Yes, yes, I get the idea. And how
do you like-
The wall moves upwards, revealing the supreme invader.
Hello! Are we there yet?
Yes. We will teleport down
We - what?
22 TIME LORD MEETING ROOM.
THE AUTHOR and THE invaderS materialise.
Kill the Time Lady!
It kills TIME LADY.
Then they stop.
Um... I don’t wish to cause
conflict, but why aren’t one of you
trying to kill the other?
The PRESIDENT laughs.
Please, just once, can’t things be
The President walks over to the invaders.
The Author backs away.
We have an agreement.
Like the one we had? Oh, you’re in
for a tough reality check, Mr
President! The invaders don’t make
The President sighs.
PRESIDENT AND SUPREME INVADER
The Author ducks, and runs out of the room, turning
RIGHT. A invader follows.
Why did you give my invader an
You are not in command of invaders!
I know, I-
GEM and THE EXPERIMENTER are at the doorway.
Right, bad timing. Run!
A invader appears behind them.
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.
You... You... I hate you...
Good. It wouldn’t be fun if you
The President stamps on his face.
23 CORRIDOR, GALLIFREY.
THE AUTHOR is running, chased by an invader.
You will die!
The Author runs into a TELEPORT ROOM.
24 TELEPORT ROOM.
The Author runs in, and grabs the machinery.
The invader enters.
Sorry, not today!
He teleports away.
25 TIME LORD MEETING ROOM.
Begin the Ultimate Invasion of
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?
The President wishes he hadn’t said that.
An invader goes into the Evil Room.
Countdown began to the destruction
of Gallifrax. 10... 9...
26 GALLIFRAX CORRIDOR.
Bodies are everywhere. THE AUTHOR runs through them.
27 TIME LORD MEETING ROOM.

A invader moves into the room.
The Author has escaped to
The President looks at the Supreme invader, then back to the
Then laughs hysterically.
30 EVIL ROOM.
Gem runs, because the invader is chasing her.
Gem runs, and runs...
Until she hits JOHN. They grab onto each other and fall
against the wall.
It has them cornered!
The Author told me about that...
It’s... An invader!
Vworp... Vworp... Woosh...
A WOODEN CRATE materialises around them.
Tardis materialising around humans.
It fires more.
But the WOODEN CRATE dematerialises.
31 INT. TARDIS.
The Author pulls a lever.
I barely got away, I left seconds
before they destroyed
Gallifrax. BUt more importantly...
John, you’re alive?
I don’t know. I remember being
possessed, then... Being
cold. Then I fell to the
ground. Then... Gem came running.
Right... and, Gem?
I was taken to Gallifrax, but the
Experimenter helped me escape.
Where is he now?
He... was killd.
The Author sighs.
He’d be a great help, because I
haven’t a clue what to do now...
32 TIME LORD MEETING ROOM.
THE EXPERIMENTER’s hand twitches.
We will follow the Author.
What was that?
An invader floats in.
Our home planet is under attack!
What is the meaning of this?
The Lost flew down from the Sky,
devouring all of us they could
Could any be killd?
No. Half the invaders have been
The Supreme invader turns to The President.
You planned this! The Deal was you
would use the Lost to conquer the
Universe after Earth has been
devoured, not our planet!
He is disintegrated.
The experimenter’s hand falls, and the disintegrater falls
out. He is dead.
Time Lords are so inferior they
kill each other.
It moves over to the machinery.
The Lost are controlled by
this. Stop them! Stop them!!
33 INT. TARDIS.
Author, please explain this all to
me, because I haven’t a clue what
is happening! Why did the
Asaecians take me over again?
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
But his body wasn’t destroyed!
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.
I’m sorry... I had to... had to
ignore it, and accept that you were
dead, because I had more to worry
He gets up.
But I am so glad you’re not.
You’re missing the obvious
question, guys! How did John
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.
Something makes me want to say The
War Effort. Maybe it’s what they
were doing on Yangama...
Well we need to save them!
But, those creatures on Earth, The
Lost, they called them... What are
Author... Author... Author...
He moves to John.
John, can you hear me?
Yangama... Yangama... Yangama...
John walks to the controls and sets them for Yangama.
John then gasps, and falls to the floor.
Whatever possessed him wants us to
go to Yangama... Maybe that’s where
the answer lies!
