1. TARDIS - INTERIOR

(The Doctor and Katarina are watching over an unconscious Steven.)

(Lights on the console start flashing.)


2.  JUNGLE ON KEMBEL

(Deep in the Kembel jungle are two Space Security agents, Kert Gantry and Bret Vyon.  Both are in rough shape, especially Gantry, who has a shattered leg.  Vyon is speaking into a radio transmitter.)

(Vyon pauses, then turns to Gantry.)


3.  COMMUNICATIONS ROOM

(Back on Earth at Central Communications, agents Roald and Lizan are monitoring the switchboards.)

(The attention turns to the interview on television.)

(The attention returns to Roald and Lizan.)

(Both return to watching the television.)

(The attention returns to Roald and Lizan.)

(He stops as a light on the switchboard blinks for a moment.)


4.  JUNGLE

(Gantry and Vyon stop to rest by an outcrop of rock in the jungle.)

(A faint noise is heard in the background.)

(He pauses, as the noise is heard again.)

(Vyon reluctantly turns to go.)

(Vyon leaves Gantry, who aims his blaster up in defence, looking all around him.)

(As Gantry looks around frantically, he hears a rustling sound in front of him, and sees a Dalek emerge from the jungle.  Gantry aims his blaster, but the Dalek fires first.  Gantry screams and falls back, dead, as a second Dalek appears.)


5.  JUNGLE CLEARING

(The TARDIS materialises in the jungle.)


6.  TARDIS - INTERIOR

(The TARDIS doors open and the Doctor, Katarina and a wounded, unconscious Steven exit.)

(The Doctor shows a puzzled Katarina the TARDIS key.)


7.  TARDIS - EXTERIOR

(The door closes and the Doctor begins exploring in the jungle.  Looking through the trees, he catches sight of a city in the distance.)

(The Doctor feels the end of a blaster against his back.)


8.  TARDIS - INTERIOR

(The TARDIS doors open and Bret Vyon enters.)

          KATARINA:  Did the Doctor sent you?
          VYON:  That's right. The old man sent me.
          KATARINA:  Have you bought help?
          VYON:  (looking around)  This is fantastic. Umm... You. What's your name?
          KATARINA:  Katarina.  Did the Doctor send you to cure the sickness?
          VYON:  Yes, but we must shut the doors first... the old man said you knew the switch.
          KATARINA:  Here.

(She pulls a lever and the doors close.)


9.  TARDIS - EXTERIOR


10.  TARDIS - INTERIOR

(Inside the TARDIS, Steven manages to overpower the weakened Vyon.)


11.  TARDIS - EXTERIOR

12.  DALEK CONTROL ROOM

(In a control room in the city, two Daleks monitor instruments.)

(He takes Katarina aside.)

(The Doctor leaves the TARDIS.)

(The Doctor wanders through the corridors of the city.  Hearing voices, he approaches the control room.)


16.  TARDIS - INTERIOR

(Bret Vyon looks towards Steven, who is again unconscious.)

(Katarina ignores him.)

(Katarina finds the tube, opens it, and looks at the tablets inside.)

(He watches as she hesitantly carries out his instructions.)


16.  DALEK CITY

(The occupant of the newly arrived spaceship approaches the Dalek control room.  The Daleks turn to greet him.)

(The newcomer steps forward.)


17. JUNGLE

(The Doctor returns from his vantage point of the Dalek city, towards the TARDIS. Along the way, he notices a small object on the jungle floor. He picks it up; it is the tape recorder left behind by Marc Cory months before. He pockets the recorder and continues through the jungle.)


18. TARDIS - EXTERIOR

(As the Doctor returns to the TARDIS, he sees the ship's door is open. He watches from the undergrowth as a Dalek emerges from around the TARDIS. The Doctor looks horrified.)
