09x08 - The Zygon Inversion (2)


( Osgood screams )

Kate: They've kidnapped Osgood and they've stolen the location of every Zygon on Earth.

Kate (O.C.): Doctor, the ceasefire's broken down.

The Doctor: Call me now.

Norlander: They turned into monsters and they came for us. We couldn't fight 'em. You can't tell who's who.

Clara Z: Oh, come on. These are eggs or pods or whatever. Look! God, that's me.

Jac: But I don't see how these are duplicates. That's not how Zygons work. These... are the humans!

Jac (O.C.): Please!

Clara Z: Kill the traitors.

Norlander: There isn't any backup, is there?

( Squelching )

Clara Z: UNIT neutralised in the UK.

Clara Z (O.C.): More or less.

Clara Z: I'm sorry, but Clara's dead.

[ INT. Clara's bedroom - Night ]

( Clara wakes with a start and gasps )

[ INT. Clara's bathroom - Night ]

The Doctor (O.C.): Clara... Clara!

[ INT. Clara's livingroom - Night ]

Clara: You're breaking up!

( Electrical crackling from TV )

The Doctor (O.C.): The invasion has happened. You're probably surrounded by Zygons. Get to the TARDIS, get yourself safe. Apparently my plane is never going to land. Let's see what we can do about that!

Clara Z (O.C.): I'm sorry, but Clara's dead.

Clara: Dream checks... Dream checks, dream checks...

Clara Z (O.C.): It's your decision, Doctor. Truth or consequences.

[ INT. Airplane ]

Osgood: Doctor...

The Doctor: Missed!

[ INT. Clara's livingroom - Night ]

( Clara wrestles with the TV, strains with her right index finger, then bites it. We see the rocket launched by Clara Z strike the airplane. )

Doctor Who
Season 9 Episode 8
The Zygon Inversion
Original air date: November 7, 2015

[ EXT. Fleet Estate Centre, London - Daytime ]

( A man [Etoine] is running in fear from an underpass. He bumps into a street cleaner and gasps, dropping the bags he was carrying. Clara Z emerges from the underpass. )

( Entry-system beeps as Etoine enters the apartment block. )

[ INT. Etoine's Apartment - Daytime ]

( Clara Z is outside the apartment and the door rattles before opening. Clara Z enters and Etoine groans )

Clara Z: I know what you are.

( Etoine gasps )

Etoine: Please... Please.

Clara Z: I'm going to set you free. Humans cannot accept the way we really are. If we cannot hide, we must fight. You are going to be the first. The first to make the humans see.

( Clara Z places the finger tips of both hands on Etoine's temples and there is electrical sparking. )

( Etoine runs off, while morphing and squelching. He gasps )

[ EXT. Etoine's Apartment - Daytime ]

Etoine: Help me. Help me... Help! Help me...

( Squelching and gurgling )

( Clara Z's records Etoine morphing on her phone. Her phone beeps. )

Clara Z: Commander here. The first one has been changed. I'm going to UNIT to retrieve the Osgood box.

[ Beach - Daytime ]

( Seagulls cry )

Osgood: Doctor? Doctor!

The Doctor: Any questions?

Osgood: Why do you have a Union Jack parachute?

The Doctor: Camouflage.

Osgood: Camouflage?

The Doctor: Yes, we're in Britain. Ooh, your specs are broken. I'll fix 'em. You can wear mine, they're sonic.

Osgood: Sonic specs?

The Doctor: Yeah!

Osgood: Isn't that a bit pointless? Like a visual hearing aid?

The Doctor: What's wrong with pointless? I once invented an invisible watch. Spot the design flaw.

Osgood: You're talking nonsense to distract me from being really scared. It's one of your known character traits.

The Doctor: Don't look at my browser history.

( Beeping )

Osgood: Whoa!

The Doctor: Yeah, I said "don't".

Osgood: Why didn't that Zygon blow us up with her big bazooka?

The Doctor: She did blow us up with her big bazooka. This is us being blown up with a big bazooka.

Osgood: But she seems to know what she's doing. The first thing I'D do if I wanted to invade the world would be to kill you.

The Doctor: Thanks.

Osgood: I wouldn't even let you get talking, like you always do. Bullet between the eyes, first thing.

The Doctor: Again, thank you.

Osgood: 12 times, if necessary.

The Doctor: Ah, yes. Why limit yourself? You've really thought this through, haven't you?

Osgood: I'm a big fan. But she gave you a chance to get out. She hesitated. If she had Clara's memory print, she'd know better than to give you even a second. You've gone quiet because I mentioned Clara. You think she might be dead.

The Doctor: Yes.

Osgood: Are you OK?

The Doctor: I don't know. I'm still in the hope phase.

Osgood: How's that going?

The Doctor: Hell. Please talk about something else.

( We see Clara trying to manipulate Clara Z with her mind and Clara Z manipulates her phone. )

[ EXT. Promenade - Daytime ]

Osgood: Why do they want to destroy the ceasefire?

The Doctor: Don't think of them as rational. They're different. They don't care about human beings, they don't care about their own people. They think the rest of Zygonkind are traitors.

( Phone beeps )

The Doctor: It's a splinter group.

Osgood: Clara. Well, not Clara. The Zygon who...

The Doctor: The Zygon who probably killed her. Read it.

Osgood: It says, "I'm awake."

The Doctor: What does she mean? A political awakening? Why would she be sending me propaganda? She just blew me up with a big bazooka.

Osgood: Never really met Clara. Pretty strong, yeah?

The Doctor: She was amazing.

Osgood: No. Not was. Is. It's not from the Zygon. It's from Clara.

The Doctor: How?

Osgood: She's not dead, she's in a pod somewhere. They need a live feed to the information in her brain. But she's fighting back. She's trying to take control, piece by piece.

The Doctor: Texting?

Osgood: How much more human do you get? The Zygon probably doesn't even know it sent this, or why it misfired that bazooka.

The Doctor: You don't know. It's just a theory.

Osgood: Yes, it's just a theory. But how's the hope phase now?

The Doctor: Worse than ever.

Osgood: Then we've got a game!

[ INT. UNIT safe house ]

( Clara Z enters and on passing a mirror sees the reflection of Clara. She opens a safe under the stairs and we hear beeping. She takes out a laptop computer, which she sets down and opens. )

Osgood 1 (on screen): Hello. If you're watching this, I have been captured and interrogated.

Osgood 2 (on screen): During the interrogation, I have revealed to you the existence of the Osgood box.

Osgood (O.C.): I have revealed its location and the combination to open this safe. And guess what?

Both Osgoods: I lied.

Osgood (O.C.): The Osgood box exists. But it's not here. Stop looking. Really...

Osgood 2 (on screen): .. stop.

Osgood 1 (on screen): The Osgood box can end the ceasefire.

Osgood 2 (on screen): The Osgood box can start the war.

Osgood 1 (on screen): The Osgood box can wipe out all humankind.

Osgood 2 (on screen): But there's a reason it's called the Osgood box.

Osgood 1 (on screen): Haven't you guessed?

( Recording breaks up. Clara Z groans and she shrieks as she smashes the laptop on the floor. She then grunts as she proceeds to stamp on it. )

[ EXT. Promenade - Daytime ]

( As the Doctor and Osgood are walking, they come upon a police car, which is stopped at a junction. )

The Doctor: Hello! Hi! Hello. Dr John Disco. It was my plane. I had a big plane for purposes of, eh, poncing about. ( The officers stare back vacantly ) It went off with a massive bang about half a mile that way? Actually... er... It's fine. We're... we're fine, aren't we?

Osgood: Yeah. Yeah.

The Doctor: Yes, yes, we're fine. Just, um, move along. (whispers to Osgood): Come on.

[ INT. UNIT safe house ]

( Clara Z's phone rings )

[ Promenade / UNIT safe house - Daytime ]

Osgood: She's answered.

The Doctor: Hello!

Clara Z: You're dead.

The Doctor: Yes, well, I'm dead now, and I think I might be a bit more dead in a minute. What's your plan, Zygella?

Clara Z (on phone): I don't have a plan.

The Doctor: Come on, you don't invade planets without having kind of plan. That's why they're called "planets" -- to remind you to plan it? Hey-hey! That's good! Pun-tastic. Dr Pun-tastic! Oh, come on, that was a good one, Zygella!

Clara Z: Don't call me Zygella. My name's Bonnie.

The Doctor: And you're winking at me.

Clara Z: I am not winking at you. Where is the Osgood box?

The Doctor: You do know what winking means? You're sending out some very mixed messages here. You know I'm over 2,000 years old? I'm old enough to be your Messiah.

Clara Z (O.C.): I am not winking at you. Where is the box?!

The Doctor: (to Osgood) We need some wheels. The van! (to Clara Z) OK. Non-verbal communication.The Doctor: I assume that you never bothered to learn Morse code... Specs! (whispers to Osgood): Setting 137.

Clara Z: Tell me!

The Doctor: OK, we'll have to try something else. 20 questions. Where's your pod? Is it in a tunnel? Is it in London? Thanks very much. Gotcha!

The Doctor (O.C.): Stay where you are, Clara.

The Doctor: We're coming to get you. And for God's sake, don't let her into your memories!

Clara Z: Memories? What memories? What has she got?

The Doctor: Don't tell her where the Osgood box is, and above all, don't tell her what it is.

( The doctor starts the van and tyres screech as he drives off. )

[ INT. Van - Daytime ]

Osgood: Obviously, the Zygon could hear that.

The Doctor: Obviously.

Osgood: So she's going to poke around inside Clara's mind, looking for answers.

The Doctor: The mind of Clara Oswald. She may never find her way out! ( chuckles )

Osgood: I don't think I've ever seen you smile before.

The Doctor: Dazzling, isn't it?

( Beep )

Osgood: Oh! I got a ping on Clara's phone. It's the location Bonnie sent the text from. A shopping centre, south London.

The Doctor: Ah, London! Perpetual city, cradle of culture, here we come! Clara, stay safe.

Osgood: She's posted a video link.

Female reporter (O.C.): A video supposedly showing an alien in south London is posted across the internet...

Osgood: This is the same place Bonnie texted from. We need to hurry.

[ Tunnel ]

( Clara Z exits the lift and taps on Clara's pod. )

[ INT. Clara's apartment living room / Tunnel ]

( Hissing )

Clara Z (on TV screen): Hello. Oh, there's no point turning over. There's nothing better on the other side. I could erase your mind.

Clara: Then why haven't you? Having trouble? Let's see what I can do. ( she concentrates and Clara Z momentarily turns into a Zygon ) See, this thing... works two ways, you know.

Clara Z: I want those memories!

Clara: Trouble is, you're asking me for them, which means you can't access them, right?

Clara Z: I can make you tell me.

Clara: No, you can't, otherwise you would have done already.

Clara Z: I can kill you.

Clara: Go on, then.

Clara Z: You think you're calling my bluff.

Clara: I am calling your bluff. You need me alive.

Clara Z: Only as a source of information.

Clara: Then you'd better start asking questions.

Clara Z: You'd better not lie.

Clara: You see, that's your problem. I am a brilliant liar. How are you ever going to know?

Clara Z: Oh, Clara. For a moment, I thought you were clever.

( Clara Z places two fingers of her right hand on her left wrist. We hear heartbeats echo. )

Clara Z: Our hearts are linked. Beat for beat. The one thing you and I can never do is lie to each other.

( Heartbeats quicken )

( Clara Z laughs )

Clara Z: Oh, that scared you, didn't it?

[ EXT. Etoine's housing estate - Daytime ]

( Tyres screech as the Doctor pulls up. )

The Doctor: London! What a dump.

Osgood: London's OK.

The Doctor: No, it's not, it's a dump.

Osgood: You spend an awful lot of time here, considering it's a dump.

The Doctor: I spend an awful lot of time being kidnapped, tortured, shot at and exterminated. Doesn't mean I like it.

Osgood: Well... This is where the video was shot. Bonnie was here. Come on, Doctor.

[ INT. Fleet Estate Centre - Daytime ]

The Doctor: There's electricity in the air.

Osgood: It stinks. It smells like... barbecues. Oh...

( Electrical sparking )

[ Tunnel / Clara's apartment ]

Clara Z: Now, listen to me. Here's what we're going to do.

Clara Z (O.C.): I'm going to ask you questions and if you don't tell me the exact and complete truth, I will know and I will kill you. Do you understand me?

Clara: Yes.

Clara Z: I will slaughter you in that pod right now. Am I lying to you?

Clara: No.

Clara Z: Good. Then we'll begin. Where is the Osgood box? You will answer me, Clara. Truth or consequences, lie and you die. Where is it?

Clara: UNIT HQ. Under the Tower of London.

Clara Z: Where, specifically?

Clara: The Black Archive.

Clara Z: Ah, yes. The dark little storage facility for forbidden alien tech, where this all began. Who has access to it?

Clara: The Osgoods.

Clara Z: Only the Osgoods?

Clara: The Doctor sealed it up after the last time. Didn't want UNIT interfering with the ceasefire.

Clara Z: Don't avoid the question. Do only the Osgoods have access?

Clara: The Doctor has access, too.

Clara Z: Who else? Ah. You. You have access?

Clara: Yes.

Clara Z: Is it a key? Or a code? No, a pass. A key code? Give it to me now.

Clara: I can't.

( Steady heartbeats )

Clara Z: Interesting. You're not lying.

Clara: No, I'm not.

Clara Z: But you have access of some kind.

Clara: Obviously.

Clara Z: Give it to me now.

Clara: I told you. I can't. You know I'm not lying, I can't give you access.

Clara Z: OK, how do you get in there? How, physically, do you get in?

Clara: It's automatic.

Clara Z: But how? Tell me!

Clara: The door is keyed to my body print.

Clara Z: Ah, yes, your body print. You can't give me access, because I have access already. I'm you.

Clara: Yes.

Clara Z: And what am I going to find? What's in the Osgood box? Clara?

Clara: The box ends the ceasefire.

Clara Z: So I'm told. How?

Clara: There's a button inside the box. Press it, it will transmit a signal that will unmask every Zygon on the planet for up to an hour.

Clara (O.C.): What's there to smile about?

Clara Z: Mass panic followed by a war. Every Zygon on our side at a stroke.

Clara: 20 million Zygons against seven billion humans -- that's not a war you can win!

Clara Z: Then we will die in the fire, instead of living in chains.

Clara: Most of your own kind don't want that.

Clara Z: Then it's time we stopped giving them a choice.

Clara: It's time you asked the most important question.

Clara Z: Which is?

Clara: I'm waiting.

Clara Z: Why's it called an Osgood box?

Clara: I'm not telling you.

Clara Z: Good. I've been looking forward to hearing you scream.

Clara: I'm not telling you, because when you get to the Black Archive, you'll find out for yourself, and when you do, you're going to want to speak to me again. Am I lying to you?

( Steady heartbeats )

Clara: See you later.

[ INT. Fleet Estate Centre ]

The Doctor: What's your name?

Osgood: Osgood.

The Doctor: No, no, no. Your first name?

Osgood: What's your first name?

The Doctor: Basil.

Osgood: Petronella.

The Doctor: Let's just stick with what we had. I need to ask you... because it's important, because it might matter...

Osgood: What's important?

The Doctor: Which one are you? Human or Zygon?

( We hear a door open, then see a Zygon, squelching )

The Doctor: Whoever you are, we can help you.

Etoine: It wasn't me. They attacked me. They saw me. I had to...

( Squelching )

The Doctor: It's OK, it's OK, it's OK. It's OK, it's OK.

Etoine: A commander came. She turned me back!

( Etoine groans )

Osgood: We can help. We can help you.

( Etoine groans )

Osgood: Doctor, we can help him, can't we?

The Doctor: I'm not sure.

( Etoine raises his right hand and electrical sparking is directed at the Doctor )

The Doctor: Please! Come back! Come back!

[ Tunnel ]

Kate: North America reporting back to High Command.

Clara Z: I'm going to the Black Archive. I'll open it up, you will follow.

Kate: Of course.

Clara Z: But first, locate the Doctor. If possible, duplicate him, and then kill him.

Kate: It will be my pleasure.

[ INT. Fleet Estate Centre ]

The Doctor: I can't help you just now, but...

( Electrical sparking )

Etoine: Why? I was happy like this. I was happy here.

The Doctor: I understand.

Etoine: I can't change. I can't hide.

Osgood: Let us help you.

Etoine: No! You are truth or consequences.

( Gurgling )

Osgood: We're not. We're really not.

( Etoine moans )

Etoine: I'm not part of your fight. I never wanted to fight anyone, I just wanted to live here. Why can't I just live?

The Doctor: We're on your side.

Etoine: I'm not on anyone's side.

( Squelching )

Etoine: This is my home.

The Doctor: Listen, we are not them.

Etoine: I can't go back now. You've taken my life!

The Doctor: No, no, no! Stop! Stop! Stop!

Etoine: They will kill me.

( Etoine's right hand emits electricty directed at himself and he evaporates. )

The Doctor: There it is, Osgood. There's their plan. Unmask everyone, provoke fear, paranoia, provoke a war.

Kate: Doctor...

The Doctor: Kate! Are you all right?

Kate: Of course I am. Why wouldn't I be?

The Doctor: It's just I'd heard otherwise.

Kate: I'm fine. Doctor, we know where the Zygon command centre is. We know where Clara's pod is. We can take you there.

The Doctor: Well, how very convenient, because that's just exactly what we're looking for.


Clara Z: And here it is, the Black Archive. Oh, I do like being you, Clara. Everyone just waves you on past. Now, how does this work?

( Beeping )

( Door opens )

[ Tunnel ]

The Doctor: Well, they like a good cave, don't they? How many of these pods are occupied?

Kate: We don't know.

The Doctor: Which one is Clara's?

Kate: Well, that's strange. It was here before.

Osgood: Doctor... I think they're Zygons.

The Doctor: Oh, you tricky little monkeys!

[ INT. The Black Archive ]

Clara Z: Normalise.

( Squelching )

Clara Z: Well, Clara, I think you're reaching the end of your...

( Phone rings )

Kate: The Doctor is here.

Clara Z (O.C.): Don't kill him. We need him alive.

Kate: What for?

Clara Z: Because I just found out why it's called an Osgood box.

Clara Z (O.C.): There's two of them.

The Doctor: Two Osgoods, two boxes. Operation Double. What did you expect?

Clara Z: What's in them, Doctor? Tell me. Now!

The Doctor: One box normalises all the Zygons.

Clara Z (O.C.): And the other?

The Doctor: Destroys them.

Clara Z: Which is which?

The Doctor: Ahh-ha-ha-ha, that would be telling!

( Two Zygons open Clara's pod )

Clara Z: Which box normalises the Zygons, Doctor? Tell me, or she dies.

The Doctor: No. This is war. You pull the trigger, you pay the price.

Clara Z: Kill her.

The Doctor: The blue one! The blue one! The blue one normalises all your people.

Clara Z: Are you lying? Are you lying to me, Doctor?

The Doctor: No, I'm not. And when you open up the box, you'll see I'm not lying.

Clara Z: Doctor? Doctor!

The Doctor: Yeah, I know.

Clara Z: Bring him to me!

[ Tunnel ]

( Kate shoots both Zygons in the head )

Kate: Sorry, Doctor! Self-defence.

The Doctor: You're you!

Kate: I'm me.

The Doctor: How did you survive?

Kate: Five rounds, rapid.

( Clara Z shrieks and throws her phone )

Kate: I'm sorry, Doctor, I know you don't approve.

The Doctor: Why does peacekeeping always involve killing?

( Beeping )

The Doctor: Is this the lot?

Kate: No, there are plenty more of them. They were the nearest. You are you?

Osgood: I'm me.

Kate: But human or Zygon?

Osgood: Me.

Kate: What are we dealing with?

The Doctor: 20 million Zygons about to be unmasked. You don't know whether they are human or not. And you can't fight them, not with soldiers.

Kate: Which leads me to a very big question.

The Doctor: I was really hoping that it wouldn't.

Kate: The Z-67, Sullivan's gas, the gas that kills the Zygons. So you took it.

The Doctor: Well, you know how it is. Daddy knows best.

Kate: That's what's in the red box, yes? Of course it is. If I remember rightly, it causes a chain reaction in the atmosphere, turns every Zygon on Earth inside-out.

The Doctor: Let me negotiate peace. You can't commit mass murder...

Kate: Then why did you leave the gas with us?

The Doctor: The boxes are safeguards for both species. You agreed to that.

Kate: I never agreed to that.

The Doctor: Yes, you did, then I wiped your memory. You agreed to that, too. But that's why there were two Osgoods to police the ceasefire. One human and one Zygon, to keep the secrets and keep the peace.

Kate: I'm sorry, Doctor. Truly. But the peace is failing already. Come on.

[ INT. The Black Archive ]

Clara (O.C.): It's no good, Bonnie, you can't win.

Clara Z: I don't care.

The Doctor: Hi! Hello! Hello! Oh, hello! Hi. Hi. Stop this. Stop this, please. Let me take both of these boxes away. We'll forgive, we'll forget. And the ceasefire will stand.

Clara Z: No.

Kate: Doctor, which of these buttons do I press? Doctor, which one? Truth or consequences?

Clara Z: Truth or consequences?

The Doctor: This is the moment we've all been waiting for. ( American accent ) Make-your-mind-up time! One of those buttons will destroy the Zygons, release the imbecile's gas. The other one detonates the nuclear warhead under the Black Archive. It'll destroy everyone in London. Bonnie. Bonnie, sweetheart! One of those buttons will unmask every Zygon in the world. The other one cancels their ability to change form. It'll make them human beings for ever. There are safeguards beyond safeguards. I did this on a very important day for me and this ceasefire will stand.

Clara Z: This is wrong.

The Doctor: No, it's not.

Clara Z: You are responsible for all the violence. All of the suffering.

The Doctor: No, I'm not.

Clara Z: Yes.

The Doctor: No.

Clara Z: Yes, you engineered this situation, Doctor. This is your fault.

The Doctor: No, it's not, it's your fault.

Clara Z: I had to do what I've done.

The Doctor: So did I.

Clara Z: We have been treated like cattle.

The Doctor: So, what?

Clara Z: We've been left to fend for ourselves.

The Doctor: So is everyone.

Clara Z: It's not fair.

The Doctor: Oh, it's not fair! Oh, I didn't realise that it was not fair! You know what? My TARDIS doesn't work properly and I don't have my own personal tailor.

Clara Z: The things don't equate.

The Doctor: These things have happened, Zygella, they are facts. You just want cruelty to beget cruelty. You're not superior to people who were cruel to you, you're just a whole bunch of new cruel people. A whole bunch of new cruel people being cruel to some other people, who'll end up being cruel to you. The only way anyone can live in peace is if they're prepared to forgive. Why don't you break the cycle?

Clara Z: Why should we?

The Doctor: What is it that you actually want?

Clara Z: War.

The Doctor: Ah, ah right! And when this war is over, when you have a homeland free from humans, what do you think it's going to be like? Do you know? Have you thought about it? Have you given it any consideration? Because you're very close to getting what you want. What's it going to be like? Paint me a picture. Are you going to live in houses? Do you want people to go to work? Will there be holidays? Oh! Will there be music? Do you think people will be allowed to play violins? Who's going to make the violins? Well? Oh, you don't actually know, do you? Because, like every other tantrumming child in history, Bonnie, you don't actually know what you want. So, let me ask you a question about this brave new world of yours. When you've killed all the bad guys, and when it's all perfect and just and fair, when you have finally got it exactly the way you want it, what are you going to do with the people like you? The troublemakers. How are you going to protect your glorious revolution from the next one?

Clara Z: We'll win.

The Doctor: Oh, will you? Well, maybe... maybe you will win! But nobody wins for long. The wheel just keeps turning. So, come on. Break the cycle.

Clara Z: Why are you still talking?

The Doctor: Because I want to get you to see, and I'm almost there!

Clara Z: You know what I see, Doctor? A box. A box with everything I need. A 50% chance.

Kate: For us, too.

The Doctor: And we're off! Fingers on buzzers! Are you feeling lucky? Are you ready to play the game? Who's going to be quickest? Who's going to be luckiest?

Kate: This is not a game!

The Doctor: No, it's not a game, sweetheart, and I mean that most sincerely.

Clara Z: Why are you doing this?

Kate: Yes, I'd quite like to know that, too. You set this up -- why?

The Doctor: Because it's not a game, Kate. This is a scale model of war. Every war ever fought, right there in front of you. Because it's always the same. When you fire that first shot, no matter how right you feel, you have no idea who's going to die! You don't know whose children are going to scream and burn! How many hearts will be broken! How many lives shattered! How much blood will spill until everybody does until what they were always going to have to do from the very beginning -- sit down and talk!

( The Doctor clasps his head and sighs with exasperation. )

The Doctor: Listen to me. Listen, I just... I just want you to think. Do you know what thinking is? It's a fancy word for changing your mind.

Clara Z: I will not change my mind.

The Doctor: Then you will die stupid. Alternatively, you could step away from that box, you can walk right out of that door and you could stand your revolution down.

Clara Z: No! I'm not stopping this, Doctor. I started it. I will not stop it. You think they'll let me go, after what I've done?

The Doctor: You're all the same, you screaming kids. You know that? "Look at me, I'm unforgiveable." Well, here's the unforeseeable. I forgive you... after all you've done. I forgive you.

Clara Z: You don't understand. You will never understand.

The Doctor: I don't understand? Are you kidding? Me? Of course I understand. You mean, you call this a war? This funny little thing? This is not a war! I fought in a bigger war than you will ever know. I did worse things than you could ever imagine. And when I close my eyes... I hear more screams than anyone could ever be able to count! And do you know what you do with all that pain? Shall I tell you where you put it? You hold it tight... till it burns your hand, and you say this... No-one else will ever have to live like this! No-one else will have to feel this pain! Not on my watch!

( Kate closes the red box )

The Doctor: Thank you. Thank you.

Kate: I'm sorry.

The Doctor: I know. I know, thank you. (turns to Clara Z)Well?

Clara Z: It's empty, isn't it? Both boxes. There's nothing in them... just buttons.

The Doctor: Of course. Do you know how you know that? Because you've started to think... like me. It's hell, isn't it? No-one should have to think like that. And no-one will. Not on our watch. Gotcha!

Clara Z: How can you be so sure?

The Doctor: Because you have a disadvantage, Zygella. I know that face.

Kate: This is all very well, but we know the boxes are empty now. We can't forget that.

The Doctor: No. Well, um, you've said that the last 15 times.

( High-pitched buzzing )

Clara Z: You didn't wipe my memory.

The Doctor: No. Just Kate's. Oh, and your little friend's here, of course. When they wake up, they won't remember what you've done. It'll be our secret.

Clara Z: You're going to protect me?

Osgood: You're one of us now, whether you like it, or not.

Clara Z: I don't understand how you could just forgive me.

The Doctor: Because I've been where you have. There was another box. I was going to press another button. I was going to wipe out all of my own kind -- man, woman and child -- I was so sure I was right.

Clara Z: What happened?

The Doctor: The same thing that happened to you. I let Clara Oswald get inside my head. Trust me. She doesn't leave.

[ INT. Basement Zygon Command Centre ]

Clara Z: Zygon High Command, the ceasefire is back in place. The rebels are standing down. You are all... safe.

[ EXT. Brockwell Park, London - Daytime ]

Osgood: The TARDIS.

The Doctor: The TARDIS.

Osgood: What does it stand for?

The Doctor: What? You're kidding me? Surely you know that?

Osgood: I've heard a couple of different versions.

The Doctor: I made it up from the initials. It stands for "Totally And Radically Driving In Space". Do you want to come? All of the future, all of history, and all of the universe?

Osgood: More than anything. But I think I have to stay. I've got a couple of boxes to keep an eye on. And a world to keep safe.

The Doctor: Fair enough. Clara, would you mind, eh...

Clara: Mind what?

The Doctor: I'll see you in the TARDIS, OK?

Clara: Uh... yeah, sure. ( to Osgood ) Take care, you!

Osgood: You take care of him. Don't let him die, or anything.

Clara: What if he's really annoying?

Osgood: Then, fine.

Clara: Got ya.

The Doctor: I need to know -- which one are you?

Osgood: I'm Osgood.

The Doctor: Human or Zygon?

Osgood: I'll answer that question one day. Do you know when day that will be?

Osgood 2 (O.C.): The day nobody cares about the answer.

Osgood 2: Gotcha!

Osgood: Oh, look at his face.

Osgood 2: It's almost not fair.

The Doctor: But I-I... I don't... How... how...

Osgood: Oh, think it through, Doctor.

Osgood 2: It wouldn't be right, would it?

Osgood: To carry on using Clara's face...

Osgood 2: When there's a vacancy.

The Doctor: Zygella?

Osgood: Osgood!

The Doctor: But which one of you...

Both Osgoods: Osgood!

Osgood: It doesn't matter which of us is which.

Osgood 2: All that matters is that Osgood lives.

Osgood: And nothing's going to stop us!

The Doctor: You're a credit to your species, Petronella Osgood.

Osgood: No, Basil.

Osgood 2: We're a credit to both of them.

The Doctor: Oh, and you should know... I'm a very big fan.


Clara: So, you must have thought I was dead for a while?

The Doctor: Yeah.

Clara: How was that?

The Doctor: Longest month of my life.

Clara: It could only have been five minutes!

The Doctor: I'll be the judge of time.


[ EXT. Brockwell Park, London - Daytime ]

Osgood: Ice creams?

Osgood 2: Yes, ice creams. Then back to work!

Osgood: What's today?

Osgood 2: Oh, you know, same old, same old. Defending the Earth.

( They inhale deeply )

[ Next time... ]

Man (O.C.): You must not watch this.

Man: You can never unsee it.

Woman: 24 hours ago, this station fell silent. We've come to find out why.

Clara: What are these?

Man: Morpheus.

The Doctor: What is Morpheus?

Computer (female): The Morpheus machine concentrates the whole nocturnal experience. Now you can go a whole month without sleep.

Man: Time is money.

The Doctor: Congratulations, Professor. You've conquered nature. You've also created an abomination.

Run! Run! Run!

You can't stop them.

Man: None of us can.
