(As BEN was
about to leave the bound BLAKE behind in the crypt to go look for POLLY and the
DOCTOR, he is stopped by the arrival of the SQUIRE, PIKE, CHERUB and POLLY, who
is still bound as well. The SQUIRE holds out a pistol pointed at BEN.)
SQUIRE: Recaptured again, eh lad? We'll have no tricks this
time.(begins to tie up BEN and POLLY together to one of the crypt's
BEN: He's the bloke that kidnapped the
PIKE: Wrong, lad. Don't deface the character of my
BEN: Look, Squire, why can't you believe
SQUIRE: Hold your tongue! You're vagabonds, both of
you, not to be trusted. Bind them, eh?
BEN: What about this one? He's a right
villain.(The SQUIRE walks down the stairs and looks for the source of
SQUIRE Hmm? These gentlemen are honest merchants.
BLAKE (calling from below in the crypt) Squire!
BLAKE: Here!(The SQUIRE goes back up the stairs to PIKE and CHERUB.)
SQUIRE: Blake! (shocked)
What the blazes are you doing here?
BLAKE: I'd be obliged if
you'd release me, sir, before asking questions of me.
(flustered) Aye, certainly, but, ah, I have no knife. One

afoot.(BLAKE, POLLY and BEN leave.)
CHERUB: Should I...? (CHERUB is pulling out his

SQUIRE) What does he know?
PIKE: Well, use him! Let him take these
prisoners, as is his duty.
SQUIRE: Aye, and then we're free of
BLAKE: (calling from below) Squire, won't you
release me, sir?
PIKE: Cut him free, Mister
SQUIRE: Aye, release him. (to BEN) You've laid
hands upon one of the king's revenue men, Josiah Blake.
But we thought he was the murderer.
SQUIRE: Be silent,
sir! (to Blake) These pretty young vagabonds have murdered my
BLAKE: Joe Longfoot?
None other. They must be therefore taken to prison, and as magistrate I
place this duty upon you.
BLAKE: I am a revenue man, sir, not
SQUIRE: Nevertheless, you will do as I
BLAKE: I am on orders from the king, sir, for the
apprehension of smugglers.
CHERUB: Could they not be smugglers
SQUIRE: Aye, indeed. What say you?
Aye, they could be.
BEN: Look, we haven't done a thing. We
didn't kill anyone. We haven't smuggled anything. Look, sir, you can take our
word for it.
CHERUB Their tongues waggle o'er much for my
SQUIRE: Aye, agreed.
BLAKE: Very well, I
will take them with me. Thank you for saving me from these rogues. They will
get the treatment they deserve.
SQUIRE: Take my pistol.
They're wily knaves.
BLAKE: Oh, thank you, Squire. Alright.
(Blake begins ushering BEN and POLLY out of the crypt.) Good day to
you, Squire. (back to POLLY and BEN) Alright, move,
2. PIKE'S CABIN
(The DOCTOR and KEWPER sit at the table,
guarded over by JAMAICA.)
DOCTOR: Now, sir, I hope this works. You may pick up any five
cards.(KEWPER picks up the cards and
hands them to the DOCTOR while JAMAICA looks on curiously.)
KEWPER: (counting under his breath)
DOCTOR: Do you, ah, wish me to tell you?(The DOCTOR begins looking over the cards
very dramatically, and JAMAICA leans over his shoulder to get a better
Aye! I have no fear of what lies therein.
DOCTOR: Ah, such
brave words, my friend, brave words. But these cards hold the secret to your
life or death.
JAMAICA: I can tell you that without cards.
DOCTOR: Do not mock that which you do not
KEWPER: Oh, come, old man. Tell me what the future
holds. Read the cards.
DOCTOR: Very well, my friend, very
well. Be it on your own head.
DOCTOR: Oh, beware. Stand back! Or you will affect the
cards.(The Doctor holds up a card, apparently a Jack.)
DOCTOR: Hmm. Yes, yes,
yes, that's very strange, hmm, hmm. And very disturbing.
What do these cards mean?
DOCTOR: Well, I'm afraid
they're rather unpleasant. Yes, the first one, ah, represents yourself, ah,
KEWPER: I am no knave, sir!(JAMAICA chuckles, his interest
DOCTOR: Well, the
cards have it so, sir. Huh, huh.
DOCTOR: And the second is master Cherub.(JAMAICA gasps in amazement.)
See a dagger? That's Cherub right enough.
third is the king. The blackest villain of them
KEWPER: Next, the ace?
DOCTOR: Yes, and
that is death itself.
KEWPER: What, Pike? Ah, and this one, the jack of
diamonds, what is he?
DOCTOR: Well, I'm afraid I have no idea
about that, sir, but, ah, I can assure you he will triumph in the end. Hmm,
KEWPER: Ah, 'tis all madness.(While JAMAICA leans in close and
concentrates on shuffling the cards, KEWPER strikes him over the head and knocks
you may call it what you wish. I know it's only cards, but eh, sometimes they
tell the truth.
JAMAICA: About any man, like
DOCTOR: Oh, yes indeed. Yes, yes! Aren't you
JAMAICA: Me? Jamaica ain't afraid.
Very well then, my friend, shuffle for yourself and let's see them reveal
your own fate. Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm.
DOCTOR: Well done, innkeeper. Now a rope! Tie him
up.(The Doctor chuckles while they tie up JAMAICA.)
KEWPER: A... a guileful trick, Doctor.
Yes, perhaps, perhaps, yes.
KEWPER: It was a trick, was it
DOCTOR: No time for idle speculation. We have to get away
from this boat as soon as we can.
KEWPER: 'Twill not be easy
without being seen.
DOCTOR: Yes, our only

and we've got to hurry if I'm to help my friends.
first we must seek the aid of the Squire.
DOCTOR: Yes, because
he has them prisoner, hmm.
KEWPER: But he is the magistrate.
He was but doing his duty. Once is he... he is informed, he will let them
free. No doubt of that.
DOCTOR: Yes, I think you're quite
right, yes. It's better to have the law on our side, isn't
KEWPER: In these dark days honesty surely
DOCTOR: Yes, well, ah, I hope your fortune turns out
alright, my friend. Hmm, hmm...
3. DECK OF THE BLACK ALBATROSS
(The DOCTOR and KEWPER emerge
from below deck and creep carefully to KEWPER's boat.)
4. EXTERIOR OF THE CHURCH
(PIKE, CHERUB and the SQUIRE stand
by the entrance to the church.)
SQUIRE: (laughing) I feel well free of these
talk they move until they stand around a tomb.)
PIKE: Such guile and wisdom, eh Mister Cherub? A
master of men, no less.
CHERUB: Indeed, sir, a kid glove upon
an iron hand.
PIKE: I wish it were always so easy to, eh,
guide the officers of the revenue. (They laugh.) But I have not the
quickness of wit of ye, Squire.
CHERUB: Such subtle ways
gladden my soul.
SQUIRE: Indeed, if one has the brains, 'tis
pity they be not used, eh?
PIKE: Rid of both law and villainy.
Indeed sir Squire, I find myself trusting ye more and more.
CHERUB: With you to lead us, sir, all fears are dispelled.
How can we fail?(The SQUIRE presses a
decoration on the grave which conceals a secret switch, and the top of it slides
open revealing a store of smuggled goods.)
SQUIRE: Indeed, we cannot. But I would
surprise you more.
PIKE: How is that, sir
SQUIRE: Why, like this.
SQUIRE: The grave holds it's secrets, eh?
But few as wordly as this, eh?
SQUIRE: Silks, tobacco and
brandy, Captain. (laughs) This is our immediate cache, you
PIKE: Aye? Then where are we to place our
SQUIRE: Why, upon the beach where you'll be
CHERUB: Whyfore not here?
SQUIRE: This is
our domain, the sea is yours. Our routes and methods must remain our own. But
have no fear, (laughs) this will be emptied before tomorrow's
5. OUTSIDE THE SQUIRE'S HALL
PIKE: Tomorrow night, then, sir, at the time
arranged.(PIKE and the SQUIRE walk off
together. Cherub is watching them from his hiding place in a nearby
SQUIRE: Yes, a small beacon will be lit upon the
shore at two past twelve. There you'll be met.
PIKE: What if
there is any danger?
SQUIRE: A second fire will be lit close
PIKE: Why then, we are suited. Except for
SQUIRE: Oh, that's soon settled. Not here, not now.
Over wine and food, what say you?
6. THE STABLES AT THE INN
(BLAKE leads the still bound POLLY
and BEN into the stables. He takes off BEN's gag, and BEN grunts with relief. To
their amazement, BLAKE then begins to untie BEN.)
DOCTOR is distracted as KEWPER enters, and he goes to talk with him in the
POLLY: What are you
BLAKE: Well is it not obvious?
Well yeah, but why release us, mate?
BEN: Whose side are you on?
know you not, but of your tale and the Squire's, I would rather trust your
word than his.
POLLY: Well, thank goodness somebody believes
us. Ah, can you untie me then?
Yeah, I was getting worried.
BLAKE: I have not said I hold
you in complete trust.
BEN: Oh no, I know, because we're
strangers. Anyway, mate, as long as you're against the Squire and those other
two layabouts, we're with you.
POLLY: But why don't you trust
BLAKE: Word of mouth has it that the Squire rules
the smuggling ring, but as yet I have no proof.
BEN: What, can
BLAKE: No, no. This calls for armed
POLLY: Armed men? Are you expecting something to
BLAKE: Did you not observe the two men who were with
the Squire? Seamen, both.
Bringing goods for smuggling!
BLAKE: Aye, more than
likely. And soon. This night or tomorrow, they will land their
BEN: And then you'll be there and nab
BLAKE: Only if I can get men in time. Otherwise I
can do nothing.
POLLY: But if these two sailors were
smugglers, what would they want with the Doctor?
BEN: Who knows? He's got a funny way of landing himself right in it all the
BLAKE: This friend of yours, the one you call the
Doctor, is he a... a learned man?
BEN: Oh, not
BLAKE: Ah, more's the pity. A soldier or a mercenary at
this point would be mighty advantageous.
POLLY: The Doctor may
not be a soldier, but he's jolly crafty at getting himself out of trouble. At
least he was when we were in London.
DOCTOR: (entering and surprising them all)
Yes, and why not here, my dear?
BEN and POLLY:
POLLY: What happened to you? Where did they take
you? How did you escape?
DOCTOR: Oh, my dear child, my dear
child, control yourself. Let it suffice that I did escape in the company of
Kewper. You remember, the innkeeper?
BEN: But he's in with the
DOCTOR: Yes, that's right. Yes, yeh, eh...
BLAKE: Kewper is thought to be
deeply involved, and he knows me.(BLAKE steps back into the shadows as
the DOCTOR brings KEWPER into the conversation.)
KEWPER: We came to rescue you lads. We know who killed the
Churchwarden.(BLAKE comes back into
POLLY: Who did, then?
Well, the villain they call Cherub.
BLAKE: The villain who is now involved in more villainy with
your Squire.(KEWPER draws a pistol.)
KEWPER: Ay, Mister Blake!
It's true. And what's more, Mister Blake knows that Ben and I are innocent
and it's you and Squire that are...
KEWPER: It's a trap you set for me, is it? Did I but know
that you were a revenue spy...(KEWPER leaves.)
BLAKE: No, master
KEWPER: Stand from me, I say. Aye, Doctor, but that
you saved me from death I'd slay you now. But the next time we meet, look not
for pity then.
7. OUTSIDE THE STABLES
(KEWPER mounts a horse and begins to
ride off. BLAKE comes out of the stables after him.)
KEWPER Take that!(KEWPER fires a shot over his shoulder at BLAKE, who is forced
to duck for cover. KEWPER rides away unhindered.)
BLAKE Stop in the name of
8. PIKE'S CABIN
JAMAICA Captain, they tricked me into it. I swear it was no
fault of mine.(PIKE
throws JAMAICA to the ground.)
PIKE Aargh, ye black-souled scum!
JAMAICA: But, Captain.
tear your liver out and feed it to the sharks, ye sea slime.
JAMAICA: It was the old man, Captain. He cast a spell on me,
I swear it.(PIKE takes out his knife and turns on JAMAICA.)
PIKE I'll cast a spell on ye, me pretty
death's-head. A spell that'll run from ear to ear.
JAMAICA: 'Twas the black arts,
JAMAICA: Spare me, Captain.
PIKE: I'll keelhaul ye from here to Port Royal.
Where did they make for?
JAMAICA: I know, Captain. I
PIKE: Then speak, boy, while ye still have
JAMAICA: I heard them speak, Captain. They said about
going to see the Squire.
PIKE: Ah, that buffoon, what good'll
he be to them?
JAMAICA: They said that he was the
PIKE: Aye, had he a will he'd call the militia, but I
doubt he'll do that.
JAMAICA: Captain, do you think he would
lay a trap?
PIKE: It follows, Jamaica.
So we have to surprise them, Captain.
PIKE: Ye speak
straight, Jamaica. They expect us tomorrow night at two of the
JAMAICA: Then, we must go tonight at
PIKE: Jamaica, you'd have made a fine skipper but you're
short on guile. Any dark of the night they'll expect us. We'll spike 'em.
We'll land by day. Some will go direct to the church and loot the smugglers
horde. Me and Cherub will seek Avery's gold.
Captain, plunder the inn, the village, and the Squire's fine
PIKE: Aye, 'twill be a merry night, but not for
JAMAICA: Captain. Captain. I beg thee. No! No! No!
Ahh!(JAMAICA cries out as he is stabbed.)
PIKE: Fare ye well Jamaica.(Pike uses a handkerchief
to wipe the blood from his knife blade an and drops it on Jamaica's
9.THE DECK OF THE ALBATROSS
PIKE: Cherub! Cherub! Where in blazes of Hell are you?
Cherub! (to a sailor) Where's Cherub? Speak, boy.
Not aboard, Captain. Not aboard.
PIKE: Not aboard? Where in Satan's name is he?
10. THE INN
(The DOCTOR, BEN, POLLY and BLAKE are exchanging
details of the situation.)
DOCTOR: Pike intends to sack the old church, and at the same
time search for Avery's treasure.(BLAKE walks to the door and calls
BLAKE: Indeed? Strange
secrets, these. But when?
DOCTOR: Well, I can't be exact, sir,
but pretty soon. I should say tonight or tomorrow night.
Ah, then help is desperately needed if these pirates are to be
DOCTOR: Yes, especially if, as Kewper thinks, that,
eh, the village will be pillaged and burnt too.
BEN: Ay, what
BLAKE: 'Tis Pike's way. Death is second nature to
DOCTOR: Yes, at least the smugglers will have prior
knowledge of Pike's plan now that Kewper has escaped.
If they're at each other's throats, this should give me the time I need to
get men and arms.
DOCTOR: Yes, be off with you,
BLAKE: Stable boy! Here, I say!(Tom
Perhaps they'll just fight it out between them.
no, when their blood is up nothing will stand before them.
BLAKE: Stable boy, get me my horse, quickly. Quickly, I say!
Pray God I'll be back soon enough.(BLAKE leaves.)

BEN: Well, we can leave this place anytime we
like.(They all go to leave.)
POLLY: We can't get down to the cave until next low
DOCTOR: Oh, my child, explain yourself.
Well, Doctor, in the crypt at the old church there's this secret
DOCTOR: Oh yes, you mean that place where the revenue
man came out of?
BEN: Yeah, but you don't know where it leads
to -- smack down to where the TARDIS is! So all we've got to do is get back to
the old church, go down the passage, and we're away, mates.
Oh, thank goodness for that.
What's the trouble, Doctor?
DOCTOR: Well, I'm afraid, my
boy, we can't leave at the moment.
POLLY: What? But why
DOCTOR: Yes, well I know it's really difficult for both
you to understand, but I'm under moral obligation.
about what? We've got no ties here.
DOCTOR: Well, it's
this village. I feel that I might be responsible for it's destruction. And
therefore I must at least try and avoid this danger until Blake comes
BEN: Yeah, but you heard what Blake said. We wouldn't
stand a chance against Pike's mob. They're a right bunch of
POLLY: We wouldn't stand a chance.
Ah, wouldn't we, my dear? Hmm, hmm, hmm.
BEN: Well, what
does that mean?
DOCTOR: Well, you seem to forget, young man,
that I've already met Pike, and I know something that he doesn't -- the clue
to the treasure. Hmm, hmm, hmm.
POLLY: So, the poor old
churchwarden did tell you something.
BEN: Oh, what are you up
DOCTOR: Well, I think if we are able to find that
treasure first, we might be able to bargain.
BEN: Well, I
don't fancy... I can't see him standing around chatting.
Yes, and it's going to give us enough time for Blake to come back here,
and the same time to save the people in this village. Hmm,
POLLY: It would be awful to do
BEN: Oh, a right couple of nut cases you two are.
Oh, well alright, I'll try anything once.
DOCTOR: Well said, my
boy. Now let's get down to the church and hope that our luck still holds out.
Come on, come on.
BEN: Hey Tom. Thanks again, mate.(They leave.)

(TOM watches as the DOCTOR, BEN and POLLY
leave. While he does, CHERUB sneaks up behind TOM and then grabs him, holding a
knife to his neck.)

KEWPER: At least you've lived to
tell the tale.
SQUIRE: To think that I've delivered our plans
into his evil hands. What are we to do?
KEWPER: We must play
them at their own game, only more skillful, as with a fox.
I...I do not relish crossing swords with Pike's hook.
If we but stick to clear thought we will not sink. And even better, we may

grasp, eh? But don't men say this gold is tainted?
villainy would be worthwhile for this end. So we must act.
But how? And without bloodshed?
KEWPER: Well, by guile, I
say. They will come soon, so we must come the sooner.
Aye, forestall the villains and leave them nothing,
KEWPER: Aye, but later this night they will be upon us
without a doubt. Now, a trap must be laid.
SQUIRE: Aye, we
have the time.
KEWPER Once we have the treasure, we are made
men. But they are to be crushed, or we are dead men.

POLLY: Well, here we are. Now where do we start
looking?(They rush into the church.)
BEN: What did the Churchwarden tell you,
DOCTOR: Oh, for heavens' sake boy, some kind of code
and I'm trying to work it out. Hmm, hmm.
POLLY: Let him get on with it. He'll tell us when he's
BEN: Weird lot of tombstones, aren't
POLLY: They're rather super, aren't they. Hey, let's try
and find the oldest.
BEN: Yeah, OK. (They look.) Hey
Duchess, have a butchers at this one. Fifteen Ninty-two!
That's not old, soppy. Don't forget we're not in the twentieth century.
This is sixteen hundred and something.

BEN: What the heck are we looking for,
Doctor?(BEN shows the DOCTOR where the
door is hidden, and slides it open.)
POLLY: What was the secret the Churchwarden told you,
DOCTOR: Ah, it was... ah, it was some kind of rhyme.
Now let me see. Eh, eh, 'Dead man's secret key. Ringwood, Smallbeer and
Gurney.' Hmm. Hmm, hmm, hmm.
BEN: 'Dead man's secret.' Well,
that means names on tombstones. But how does that help?
Well, we must find these names, mustn't we. Yes, that'll be the first
step. Hmm, hmm.
BEN: Well look, don't you want to see the
DOCTOR: Oh yes of course, dear boy, well,
where is it? Where is it? Hmm?
DOCTOR: Ah. Hmm.
DOCTOR: Yes. Oh, that's very clever. Yes. Very clever indeed,
yes. Heh, heh. Now just shut it up again, will you. Then we can get on. Hmm,
hmm.(BEN slides the door
shut again, and he and the DOCTOR move back towards the graves where POLLY is
BEN: OK, you're the governor.
POLLY: Ringwood! I found Ringwood.
Oh, good my dear. Well, continue with the search. And then the sooner
we'll have better... you know, the sooner we find the secret.

hmm.(KEWPER threatens BEN and POLLY.)
BEN: Well I'm blowed If I can see how it
