COUNTER PLOT

Written by
TERRY NATION


1.  A CORRIDOR

(Sara Kingdom runs into view.)

(Borkar comes running in from the other end of the corridor.)

(Borker points his gun at the body of Bret Vyon.)

(Sara says this with a little sadness in her voice.)

(They part.)


2.  ANOTHER CORRIDOR WITH A DOOR

(The Doctor and Steven run down the corridor and stop by the door.)


3.  EXPERIMENT CHAMBER

(This is a room that is completely empty except for a small satellite-like device in the middle of the room.  Mice can be seen in the middle of it.)

(They have a look at it)

(Steven moves to the edge of the room listening for noise while the Doctor has a closer look at the mice.)


4.  EXPERIMENT CONTROL ROOM

(In this room two scientists - Froyn and Rhynmal.  They are performing final checks before their experiment.)

(Two security men - Borker and Karlton, the second in command to Mavic Chen, enter the room.)

(The two security men leave.  Froyn goes back to his console.)

(A bleeping noise is heard.)


5.  EXPERIMENT CHAMBER


6.  CORRIDOR WITH DOOR

(Sara is sliding up to the door with a gun in her hand.  She opens the door and enters the door.  Behind her we can see Borker.)

(Borker runs off.)


7.  EXPERIMENT CHAMBER

(Sara keeps the Doctor and Steven covered with her gun.)

(Her face is filled with pain as the room starts to flash with a brilliant light.  We also see that the Doctor's and Steven's faces are filled with pain also.)


8.  CORRIDOR WITH A DOOR

(We see Borker and Karlton rush up to the door.)

(They open the door.)


9.  EXPERIMENT CHAMBER

(The chamber is completely empty; not the Doctor, Sara, Steven or the satellite-like device is there.  What is heard is a high-pitched humming noise.)


10.  EXPERIMENT CONTROL ROOM

(Both Froyn and Rhynmal are checking readings from their instruments.)

(They both touch some controls.)

(He crosses to another panel.)

(The noise stops.)

(A light flashes on the panel.)

(He dashes to the panel.)

(They both leave the room.)


11.  CORRIDOR WITH A DOOR

(Froyn and Rhynmal run down the corridor and enter the room.)


12.  EXPERIMENT ROOM

(Froyn and Rhynmal find the two security men there.)


13.  SPACE

(We see the bodies of Steven and Sara moving about in space.  The satellite is going around and around and the faces of the passengers are first filled by nothing and then by great pain as they move faster and faster away from Earth.)


14.  EXPERIMENT CONTROL ROOM


15. MIRA

(The planet is called Mira.  It is a lot like Kembel with its jungle and wildlife.  The ground is covered by a small blanket of fog and pool of some strange liquid bubbles in certain areas.  We pan across the landscape to show how lonely and jungle-filled it is.)


16.  DALEK CITY CONTROL ROOM, KEMBEL

(The Dalek Supreme enters the room to hear the reports from one of its aides.)


17.  EXPERIMENT CONTROL ROOM

(Rhynmal and Froyn are trying some controls under the eye of Karlton.)

(He turns to Borker.)

(Karlton turns back to Froyn.)

(Karlton storms out with Borker following.  Froyn goes back into the centre of the room to find Rhynmal working on the control panel.)

(A bleeping sound is heard.)

(Froyn dashes over to the console.)


18.  MIRA

(We still pan across the jungle lands of Mira until we come across the Satellite.  It is slightly damaged with one piece of it broken but the mice are in there and are alive.)


19.  GUARDIAN'S OFFICE

(Karlton walks into the room softly.)

(Mavic Chen takes his hands away from his face.)

(Mavic Chen sees the logic in this.)

(He throws open his arms.)

(He sees that Karlton is watching him.)

(He walks out with his usual arrogance.)


20.  MIRA

(We pan down some trees and we come to the Doctor.  His eyes open and he focuses on where he is.  He checks all over his body for any bruises and suchlike before standing up.  He next checks his hand as if he isn't sure what has happened to him and next checks in his pocket for the Taranium Core.  Luckily it is still in there and he brings it out to have a look at it.  He thinks on what has just happened.)

(He moves on.)


21.  ANOTHER PART OF THE JUNGLE

(Nearby, Sara is just coming round.  She raises her arms to try and get some feeling back into them.  Next to her is Steven.  He comes round more quickly.  He stands up, and after seeing Sara's still mostly-unconscious body he crosses over to it and takes her blaster from her.  He attempts to wake her up properly but fails.)


22.  JUNGLE

(The Doctor has found the mice and is checking them over.)

(He goes behind some jungle and hears some noises.  He tries calling out.)


23.  JUNGLE FLOOR

(On the ground we can see some pawprints being made but we can't see who or what is making them.  It seems that it is following the Doctor for some reason.)


24.  ANOTHER PART OF THE JUNGLE

(Steven is holding the blaster while looking at Sara's body.)

(The Doctor appears from the jungle.)

(He sees Sara.)

(Sara groans.)

(Sara is opening her eyes.)

(Sara sits up and sees who is with her while Steven moves away.)

(He helps Sara to her feet.)

(He puts his arms around Sara's and helps to steady her walk.)


25.  DALEK CITY CONTROL ROOM, KEMBEL


26.  JUNGLE

(Sara and Steven are now arguing.)


27.  SATELLITE

(The Daleks have found the mice and are wondering what do about them.)

(They move away and then blast it.  The mice die and it stops bleeping.)

(They turn and have a look around.)

(The leaves near the Daleks start to move and obeying orders, the Daleks fire.  There is a roar and the leaves stop moving.)

(They move on.)


28.  EXPERIMENT CONTROL ROOM

(Froyn is not getting any more signals from Mira and is being watched by an impatient Karlton.)


29.  JUNGLE

(The Doctor, alone, moves forward and he hears a noise.  With his walking stick up he moves slowly forward when suddenly the leaves near him start to move.  The Doctor attacks whatever is there with his stick and with a roar the creature backs off.)


30.  MORE JUNGLE

(The Doctor appears.)

(She runs off.  Steven starts to follow her but the Doctor stops him.)

(With a cry, Sara runs back.)

(Steven takes the blaster and starts to move forward.)

(Steven comes back.)

(Steven goes up a small hill and with the others following him sees a large bunch of leaves moving and smoke rising from the ground.)


31.  GUARDIANS' OFFICE

(Karlton is back with Mavic Chen.)

(He drops the pen that he was using.)

(Mavic Chen raises his eyes heavenwards.)


32.  JUNGLE

(The monsters start to move forward but blasts from a Dalek kills them.)

(The Dalek covers them.)
