    Doctor Who: The End of the Doctor
    Scene 1 – INT. Oswald Flat
    On Screen Text: 25 December 2013
    Clara Oswald is sitting with her family at Christmas Dinner.

    SFX: TARDIS materialisation

    Clara: Everybody just stay put!

    Clara runs off, she runs back, grabs a bon bon and runs out again.


    Scene 2 – INT. TARDIS Console Room
    Clara runs into the TARDIS and notices that it isn’t the Doctor flying the ship – it’s Tasha Lem.

    Clara (incredulous): You can fly the TARDIS?

    Tasha: Flying the TARDIS is always easy. It’s flying the Doctor I’ve never quite mastered.

    Clara (apprehensive): What’s happened to him?


    Scene 3 – EXT. Christmas, Trenzalore
    Daleks fill the town, the sky is full of saucers. The town is burning.

    SFX – TARDIS materialisation

    Clara runs out of the ship, and runs towards the Tower, avoiding Daleks.


    Scene 4 – INT. Tower
    Clara sees that they’re too late. There is no Crack in the wall. And the Timestream is there exactly as it appeared when they had entered the Tomb with the Great Intelligence.

    Clara (grieving): Nooo! We’re too late.

    Clara breaks down and cries.


    A Dalek enters the room.

    Dalek: THE DOC-TOR IS DEAD!

    Clara: He is. But you’re not going to go into that Timestream.

    Dalek: HE IS DEAD. I CAN ENTER THE TIMESTREAM, PLAC-CING DALEKS ALL ALONG HIS TIME-LINE!

    Clara: But I can stop you. I have already stopped you!

    Dalek: EXPLAIN!

    Clara grabs the sonic screwdriver from beneath the Timestream.

    Clara: The Great Intelligence already went through. So did I. The Daleks will fail.

    Dalek: IM-POSS-IB-LE!

    Clara: That’s me, the Impossible Girl!

    Clara presses the button on the sonic.

    SFX: Sonic does something. Smoke rises from the Dalek’s dome.

    Dalek: I AM NOT IMPAIRED! EX-TER-MIN-ATE!

    SFX: The Dalek fires.

    Clara avoids the Dalek’s beam. It sets some of the pictures on fire.

    SFX: The Dalek explodes.

    Tasha enters the room.

    Tasha: I see that we’re late. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. Run Clara!

    Clara (Teary): Where?

    Tasha: To the TARDIS! It’s up to me to protect the town now.

    Clara: The crack is gone!

    Tasha: The Daleks will conquer Trenzalore regardless.

    Clara nods

    Clara: I forgive you.

    Tasha smiles as Clara runs.


    Scene 5 – EXT. Christmas, Trenzalore
    There are more Daleks then before. People are fleeing. Clara barely manages to make it to the TARDIS.


    Scene 6 – INT. TARDIS Console Room
    Clara runs to the console. She puts the sonic down.

    Clara: I remember, one of my echoes was on Gallifrey. Did she know how to fly a TARDIS?

    SFX: TARDIS noises and lights (similar to Clara and the TARDIS)

    Clara: No? Let’s find out.

    Clara concentrates and slowly manipulates the console.


    Scene 7 – EXT. Christmas, Trenzalore
    SFX: TARDIS dematerialisation, ‘jittery’ as Clara is working from extremely hazy echo memories.

    Dalek: THE TAR-DIS IS DE-MAT-ERIAL-ISING!

    Another Dalek: ALERT, ALERT, A COMPANION HAS SURVIVED! THEY ARE ESCAPING!


    Scene 8 – INT. TARDIS Console Room
    Clara sees that the TARDIS is in flight.

    Clara: We are in the vortex. You know how to get to Earth.

    SFX: TARDIS noises and lights.

    Clara: Incorrect course set? Of course.

    Clara makes adjustments on the console. She is knocked off her feet.

    SFX: TARDIS noises and lights

    Clara gets up and stands next to the console.

    Clara: That’s right. Earth! It doesn’t matter when. I’ll figure that out next.

    SFX: TARDIS noises and lights.

    Clara: I know that you landed where he was needed. You can land where I’m needed.

    SFX: TARDIS noises and lights


    Scene 9 – INT. British Hospital Room Early 24th Century
    SFX: TARDIS materialisation.

    TARDIS doors open and Clara steps out.

    Clara (V/O): Why am I here?

    Clara glances at a calendar on the wall. It’s Christmas, 2313
    Woman (V/O): Grandfather?

    Clara turns to the voice.

    Clara: No grandfather, here. I’d be a cousin some number of times removed.

    Woman (V/O): Oh, It sounded like he was here.

    Clara thinks. She gets an idea.

    Clara: Was your grandfather called the Doctor, by any chance?

    We see the woman for the first time. It’s Susan, the Doctor’s granddaughter. She is quite elderly, with white hair.

    Susan: Yes.

    Clara: Do the words, Gallifrey and TARDIS mean anything to you?

    Susan: TARDIS. I made up the name from the initials, Time and Relative Dimensions In Space. Gallifrey was my home, I left when I was young. And yes I know about the Time War and its end.

    Clara (sadly): I’m sorry to say, that your grandfather has died.

    Susan: No!

    Clara: He died of old age on his thirteenth incarnation.

    Susan: Oh!

    Susan recovers. She realises something, grabs a walking stick and clambers out of the bed.

    Susan: How did you fly the TARDIS here? Only Time Lords can fly them.

    Clara: You’d be surprised. But this is the first place I managed to reach after leaving the Doctor’s resting place.

    Susan: She brought you here didn’t she?

    Clara: Yes.

    Susan: One problem.

    Clara holds out her hand.

    Clara: Clara Oswald!

    Susan: Nice to meet you, Clara. But that wasn’t the problem. You see, I don’t think I’ll be able to fly the TARDIS.

    Clara (shocked): Oh!

    Susan: But I did help Grandfather fly it when I travelled with him.

    Clara: That would be helpful...

    Clara trails off. Susan realises that she hadn’t told Clara her name.

    Susan: Susan. Let’s go.


    Scene 10 – INT. TARDIS Console Room
    Susan and Clara enter the TARDIS. Clara closes the door.

    Susan: Interesting desktop. I also see that the chameleon circuit is still stuck.

    Clara: I think the Doctor liked it that way.

    Susan: It grew on me too.

    Susan arrives at the console. She concentrates and manipulates the console like Clara did earlier.


    Scene 11 - INT. British Hospital Room Early 24th Century
    SFX: TARDIS dematerialisation (similar to the departure from Trenzalore, Susan is also working from hazy memories.)


    Scene 12 - INT. TARDIS Console Room
    Susan: We’re in flight. I don’t know where we’re going. But we’re in flight.

    Clara: We can get back to London later, I suppose.

    Susan collapses.

    Clara: Susan!

    Clara runs to her and helps her up.

    Susan: It’s started.

    Clara: What’s started?

    Susan: My body is wearing a bit thin. I’m regenerating.

    Clara: Right. But I just met you!

    Susan: Oh, Clara. Times change, and so must I. We all change. We’re all different all through our lives, and that’s OK, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be. I’ll not forget these last moments of when Susan was me, when she met the TARDIS again and you for the first time, I swear. I’ll always remember when Susan was me.

    Susan remembers the Doctor as he appeared in his first incarnation.

    First Doctor: Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs, and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine. Goodbye Susan. Goodbye my Dear.

    Susan stands. Clara gives her room.

    SFX: Regeneration energy comes from Susan’s hands.

    Clara: No! No!

    Susan spreads out her arms.

    SFX: Susan regenerates! Her second incarnation looks exactly like Clara!

    Susan II looks at Clara. Clara is shocked that Susan now looks like her!

    Susan II: Wow! To be young again.

    Susan laughs. Clara is still shocked.

    Clara: You could be my twin. Creepy!

    Susan: Time Ladies can take on the form of someone they had recently encountered, prior to regeneration. In my case, you.

    SFX: Alarming TARDIS noises.

    Susan and Clara are knocked about.

    Clara: What’s happening?

    Susan: We’re probably crashing!

    SFX: Alarming TARDIS noises.

    Clara: Into what?

    Susan: Stay Calm

    Susan manipulates the console, without success.

    Susan: Just one question. Do you happen to know how to fly this thing?

    Clara rushes to the console to try to help Susan.
