DOCTOR WHO SCENE: 11TH REGEN TO 12TH DOCTOR
A FAN-SCREENPLAY WITH MY IDEA OF THE DOCTOR...HAHA.
The Doctor (Matt Smith, #11) has just been accidentally shot by Rory, who was aiming at Amy's captors. He stumbles forward, grasping his stomach and wincing in evident pain.
Rory holds the gun up close to camera left. He lowers it, and his expression goes from stone cold with furious undertones to sudden realization of what he's just done.
AMY WITH CAPTORS
Zoom in on AMY - her eyes widen and she stops struggling, looking down at the Doctor.
THE DOCTOR FALLS
Doctor gasps as he rests on his knees, hunched over, and he falls onto his face.
WIDE SHOT: THE THREE HUMANS
Amy runs over to the Doctor, tearing and shaking her head. She kneels immediately next to him, rolling him onto his back. At the same time, Rory powers down his gun, drops it to the ground and walks over behind Amy, resembling a protective force helping her that is seemingly gone by the Doctor's sudden death.
SLOW ZOOM OUT
The Daleks disappear around the three humans as the other aliens walk out, their heads bowed. A few of them emit a rattling sound, but it is not a menacing one, more like they are humbled.
BEHIND AMY: RORY'S POV
Out of Rory's eyes, we see Amy shaking her head and shaking the Doctor's shoulders.
AMY AND THE DOCTOR
Amy grips the lapel on The Doctor's right side in fright, seeing his chest rising very slowly and falling.
AMY's back is to the camera, and The Doctor looks up at her. He appears to be somewhere far away, as if he can barely hear her.
The Doctor smiles.
Amy is looking at her best friend with tears in her eyes. Doctor's left hand reaches up to cup her cheek and she swallows.
Amy. I'm regenerating...you know that. I'm not finished yet. Let the Vision through. I've figured out just who she is.
He smiles even wider, almost cheekily.
Amy tries her hardest to smile, but tears are pouring down her cheeks.
No, Doctor, please don't leave me now...
You see, Amy, I'm going to be her.
Wh...what do you mean?
How is that possible?
CLOSE UP ON RORY
He is looking downward at The Doctor and Amy, clearly troubled by this scenario. He squeezes his eyes shut and winces. The pain seems to come from his heart.
WIDE SHOT OF ALL THREE
Rory bows his head as Amy searches The Doctor's face.
The Vision. She's a girl. And she's not ginger either...apparently. She's me. It's just like when I was my fourth self and...(coughs)
CLOSE UP ON AMY
She is frantically trying to think of a way to stop her best friend from regenerating.
Doctor, don't leave me, please!
CLOSE UP ON THE DOCTOR
His smile has faded slightly. He whispers something so soft, not even we can hear it.
She shakes her head, looking confused.
CLOSE UP OF THE VISION'S FACE
The face has gone from a blank blue field to a periwinkle bare outline of a face. Her lips move for the first time.
Doctor, it's time. You know what must happen now.
BACK TO THE DOCTOR
He pauses, looking up at Amy dramatically.
Stand back...this is going to be very scary. But Amelia Pond...I want you to remember:...
DOCTOR AND VISION (O.C.)
...I'll always be there for you.
GROUND SHOT OF ALL THREE
The Doctor is somewhat silhouetted against the camera with Amy looking at his face, Rory behind her and a bit to her left. The Vision smiles and walks up to him slowly.
DOCTOR CLOSE UP
Slowly, peacefully, Doctor shuts his eyes and his skin illuminates, a sign that he is about to regenerate.
RORY AND AMY
Rory suddenly pulls his wife back. She struggles against him.
Doctor. I like that name.
SHOT FROM ABOVE
The only thing we can see in the bright light is the Doctor's clothing with light shooting out of his head, hands, and feet. The picture itself shakes violently. The Vision slips into the body as his features are now unrecognizable and she disappears, a smile on her face.
RORY AND AMY
Amy, in hysterics, buries her face into Rory's chest, sobbing. He holds her tightly, eyes glued to the regenerating Doctor.
DOCTOR SHOT FROM ABOVE
Suddenly, the illumination cools down. We quickly zoom in to the side of The Doctor's face.
The Doctor is no longer Matt Smith. It is now a Time Lady, formerly the Vision. This is the 12th Doctor!
RORY AND AMY
Rory pulls her from his chest and continues staring at the newly regenerated Doctor. Amy looks, fearful, but her expression changes to utter confusion.
THE DOCTOR IS ALIVE - SHOT FROM SLIGHTLY ABOVE AND AWAY
The Doctor pushes up onto her knees and stands up, the camera following her upper body. She turns to face her two companions. She grins, the memories rushing back.
I know you, don't I?
RORY AND AMY
The couple exchanges a glance.
I'm, uh, Rory Williams.
Amelia Pond. Amy. We're married. Rory and me. But, uh, why do you--
Oh, before you ask, regeneration. This is my twelfth body so far. Well, I've retained more memory than ever. (turns around sharply) TARDIS! You sexy thing. Thank you. (looks down) Lost the bow-tie...thank Rassilon. Still have the shoes...I'm a girl, yeah, sorry Amy...I'm a bit taller too. And my voice is still deep. That's not good. But where's the fez?
She looks up suddenly at Rory and Amy.
RORY AND AMY
Oh, don't tell me you lost it. Never mind about that. With my new body, I look different and I've got a new personality. New pretty much everything. But it's the same old Raggedy Doctor, same two hearts. Huh. Speaking slower...perfect. I say perfect now. Is it perfect?
I suppose so.
Well! That's good then! (runs over to the TARDIS) Let's rattle off to Barcelona, shall we? Not the planet, but the city in Spain. It's wonderful, really. Well, as the old saying goes...we are off!
She pulls a lever on the TARDIS and lets out a whoop. RORY hugs AMY and also cheers. AMY just screams.
