1.  DALEK CONTROL ROOM, KEMBEL

(The time machine fades from the Control Room.)


2. DESERT

(In the distance is a pyramid.  The TARDIS materialises.)


3.  DALEK TIME-MACHINE

(Some Daleks are running the machine while the Red Dalek is in charge.  Over in a corner, Mavic Chen is standing.)

(He turns to the scanner which is showing the desert landscape.)


4.  DESERT

(The TARDIS is near the pyramid. Steven and the Doctor have left the ship.  The Doctor is worried about the damage the Monk caused to the lock, and has got a tool box out and is working on the lock.)

(Steven looks at the pyramid.)

(They both look at it for a moment.)

(Steven isn't sure which one to choose so for a moment he thinks which one to take.  He chooses one and passes it over.)

(He tries again.)

(The Doctor gets it himself.)

(He sees a small ramp of earth on the side of the pyramid.)

(With no answer from the Doctor, Steven shakes him head in amusement, and then heads off towards the ramp.)

(He looks up and sees that he is alone.)


5.  DALEK TIME MACHINE

(The whispering, humming noise is heard as the Time Machine lands.)


6.  DESERT

(He runs back, as Sara comes out of the TARDIS.)

(He turns back to the lock.)

(They move away leaving the Doctor to work on the lock not knowing that an Egyptian, Tuthmos, is watching him.)


7.  KHEPREN'S WORKSHOP

(Khepren is the designer of the new type of tomb which is in the pyramid and is having breakfast with Hyksos (the swarthy captain of the local guards) when Tuthmos comes running in.)

(Hyksos and Khepren leave their food and follow the slave.)


8.  ANOTHER PART OF THE DESERT

(Sara and Steven have arrived at the part of the Desert with the time-machine which simply sits in the sands.  It is a featureless box.)

(They start to move forward but stop when the door to the machine opens and Mavic Chen steps out, followed by a Dalek.)

(They turn around but are grabbed by some guards.  The guards under the command of Hyksos have been watching the whole thing and waited to grab both Steven and Sara.  It happens so fast that Sara doesn't get the chance to use her judo skills.  They are both knocked senseless.)

(The guards move forward while four drag Steven and Sara away.  Hyksos sees Mavic Chen and the Daleks.)

(Some guards run forward.  Seeing a dozen or more Egyptian warriors racing towards him, Mavic Chen dodges for the cover of a limestone rock.  The guards stop in front of the Daleks not knowing what to do.)

(The Daleks start opening fire on the soldiers, some of whom die horribly.  The rest run for their lives.)


9.  PYRAMID

(Some of the Daleks move forward obeying the order.  A chase then ensues around the Pyramid as the soldiers are trying to get away.  Some aren't so lucky and we hear the Daleks firing and the soldiers dying. Hyksos escapes.

          HYKSOS: ____A slaughter! I must fetch reinforcements.


10.  DALEK TIME MACHINE LANDING SITE


11.  TARDIS LANDING SITE

(The Doctor has finished the repairs and has returned the tool box to the TARDIS and picked up his stick.  He carefully looks at the lock with measure of pride at his work.)

(He tuts at the non-appearance of the companions and walks on.)


12.  PYRAMID

(The Doctor is walking about, having a look at the pyramid.  He wanders through different parts of the Pyramid and we see that even though the Pyramid is nearly complete there are still bricks and large slabs still to be built.  He is impressed with what he sees and is marvelling at the size when a strange but familiar sound reaches his ears - a sound which heralds the arrival of a huge building block.  It is the Monk's TARDIS.  The Doctor laughs to himself.  The Monk steps out still wearing his robe and habit and after seeing the sun and the strong sunlight he blinks and goes back inside and pops out a few seconds later with a pair of mirrored sunglasses!  The Monk moves off looking for the Doctor's TARDIS.  The Doctor moves forward into the open and is looking at the Monk's TARDIS when he remembers the other ship.)


13.  KHEPHREN'S WORKSHOP

(Steven and Sara's bodies are bought into the house.  The guards dump them on the ground.  They both start to come to. Tuthmos, Khephren and Hyksos are here too.  Tuthmos and Khephren raises a eye at Hyksos.)

(Steven has recovered consciousness and is feigning unconsciousness.  He is watching everything and is testing his bonds.)

(He leaves with Khepren. Steven, seeing that there was no point in further pretending he is unconscious, sits up.)

(Sara sits up as well.)

(He leaves.  Steven feels Sara tugging at his bonds.)


14.  PYRAMID

(The Monk marches happily through the sand, half-wishing he remembered to bring a bucket and spade.  He has no idea at all that the Doctor is following him with a big grin on his face.  He moves forward and passes a being.  He has an plan, if you looked innocent, nine times out of ten you'd be left alone!  He places his hand piously together and keeping his head low moved by the being.)

(Unfortunately the being is a Dalek who trains his gun on him.)

(The Dalek is ready to fire when...)

(He pushes the gun-stick aside.)

(He turns to the Monk.)

(He starts to move away.)

(He raises his voice to be sure that the Dalek behind him can hear him.)

(It is clear that Mavic Chen is toying with the Monk and it is also clear that the Monk is desperate to get away with his life.)

(The Monk nods, and starts to retreat.  Chen raises a eyebrow and points in the direction of the Doctor's TARDIS.  The Monk gives a watery smile and strikes himself rather theatrically on the head and then moves off in the right direction.)


15.  DESERT

(We see the Monk moving about with some kind of TARDIS locator looking for the Doctor's TARDIS.  The machine bleeps at him and he looks down and follows its directions.)


16.  MONK'S TARDIS LANDING SITE

(The Doctor moves over to the Monk's TARDIS and is able to open the doors since the Monk didn't lock them properly.)

(With a small laugh he moves inside.  With a hum the Monk's TARDIS starts to change shape to the following:  a tall Ionic column, a stage- coach, a small tree, an igloo, a small one-man rocket-ship, a Camel and then finally a tall blue British Police Telephone Box - a copy of the Doctor's!  The Doctor comes out holding up some kind of circuit or unit.  And still laughing walks away.)


17.  KHEPREN'S WORKSHOP

(Steven shakes the rope off him and then unties Sara.)

(He hides behind the door where two guards are waiting outside.)

(The guards with another come into the house and start fighting with them.  The guards start to fight back but with the aid of Sara's judo, Steven is able to knock them unconscious.)

(They leave the hut.)


18.  TOMB

(Nearby Khephren has got his slaves to bring the TARDIS into the tomb and then leaves going for some more of the Pharaoh's treasures.)


19.  OUTSIDE THE TOMB

(The Monk follows the locator which seems to be leading him straight towards the opening in the pyramid.)


20.  TOMB INTERIOR

(The tomb is filled with treasures and a sarcophagus where the Pharaoh's body is going to be laid to rest.  In the corner by the wall lies the TARDIS. Putting the locator way in one of his pocket, the Monk moves forward and tries to open it not knowing that the Doctor is right behind him.)

(The Monk spins about and tries to smile.)

(The Monk's face is a picture.  Complete and utter shock.  Then he composes himself.)

(He laughs.)

(He realises that the Doctor must have heard his conversation with Mavic Chen.)

(The Doctor raises his eyes to the roof at this thin ploy.)

(He moves forward toward the Monk raising his walking stick menacingly.)

(The Monk is now wedged in the corner, with nowhere left to retreat to.  The Doctor's laughter is still going on.)


21.  DALEK TIME MACHINE

(Inside, the Red Dalek moves to the main communications panel where there is another Dalek.)

(The Dalek turns back to the control panel.)


22.  TARDIS LANDING SITE

(Steven and Sara have arrived where the TARDIS used to be.  All that is there is the skid marks of where the Egyptians have dragged it.)


23.  TOMB, OUTSIDE

(Steven tries calling out.)

(They move inside the tomb.)


24.  TOMB, INTERIOR

(It's exactly the same but the Monk and the Doctor are not in sight.)

(He turns to Sara.)

(Sara spots the TARDIS.)

(They try to open the TARDIS door but it is still locked.)

(Sara sees something behind them.  She calls to Steven.)

(He turns around.  The lid of the coffin is being slowly lifted from within by a bandaged hand...)
