Following on from “The Force is With You”, Tommy and Barry inadvertently fire up Inspector Charlie Bells Tardis and head back to the East Cleveland past. Lots of scope here for the schoolchildren, Skinningrove History Group, Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum etc etc.

Scene 1


This Scene ready to shoot

TOMMY AND BARRY STAND IN FRONT OF TIMMS COFFEE HOUSE

BARRY: HEY TOMMY, THEY’VE GONE OFF AND LEFT THAT TARDIS STANDING THERE.
TOMMY: SO THEY HAVE BARRY, ANY COUPLE OF IDIOTS COULD JUST WALK IN AND START IT UP.
BARRY: AND IF I REMEMBER RIGHTLY, THAT THING CAN TRAVEL THROUGH TIME AND SPACE.
TOMMY: WE’D BEST LEAVE IT ALONE THEN BARRY.

long pause …………

BARRY: WELL PERHAPS JUST A QUICK LOOK

THEY GO INSIDE

TOMMY: HEY BARRY IT’S QUIT ROOMY IN HERE
BARRY: HMM, A BIT CLAMMY ALL THE SAME
TOMMY: I’LL JUST SWITCH ON THIS AIR CONDITIONING THEN. (PULLS SWITCH)
BARRY: NO TOMMY, NO !!!!!!
TOMMY: OH ‘ECK BARRY I THINK WE’RE GOING BACK
BARRY: AND NOT TO THE FUTURE TOMMY, WE’RE GOING BACK TO THE PAST
TOMMY: OH NO, OUR LASS WILL KILL ME WE’RE SUPPOSED TO GO SHOPPING ON WEDNESDAY

Scene 1(b)


This Scene ready to shoot

Having set the Tardis off we see it hurtling through space

BARRY: Here’s another fine mess you’ve got us into Tommy
TOMMY: Don’t worry Barry I think I know how to work this thing (pokes at the console)
FX: Horrible groaning of metal, comic blips and squeeks of electronic machinery
THE TARDIS SHUDDERS
FX:Toilet Flush
TOMMY and BARRY look at each other astonished WHAT !! ?
CHARLIE BELL ENTERS
TOMMY – Inspector Bell
BARRY – Where did you come from
CHARLIE – I was just ...... Never mind that what have you two idiots been up to
CHARLIE dashes to the console
CHARLIE: (angry) Idiots, you’ve reversed the polarity on the giggleshaft circuits and mangled the widget pistons. We may never be able to return home ...
CRASH – The Tardis has landed.
CHARLIE: You two get out of my way whilst I try to fix this mess. Go out side and see where we’ve landed.
TOMMY and BARRY: OK
CHARLIE: And one more thing
TOMMY and BARRY: YES?
CHARLIE: Be careful, we could be anywhere and any time !
TOMMY and BARRY Look fearful

Move to scene 2





The Following Scenes do not need to run in this order except perhaps for Scenes 2 and7

Scene 2 The Vikings


This Scene needs more work

Tardis Lands

Charlie Bell: You two take a look outside and see where we are. Leave me to check how much damage you've done

Tommy and Barry Emerge. The Tardis is off kilter, half burried in sand on the beach. A Viking ship is offshore. The following scene (to be written) involves Vikings. Tommy and Barry are captured and taken to the Viking Ship off Skinningrove shore. They are slung in the Hoose Gow. Tommy lights a match to see in the Dark and drops it. The set fire to the ship and are forced to swim ashore as it burns. The make it to the Tardis and implore Charlie to take them home

Suggestion

VIKING - ERIC BLOODAXE: - saves T & B from the bad Viking
Bad Viking is Geordie Valhalla. (with Geordie Accent) ( played by the Arthur Vador avatar - his forbear)

Hey youse two - I'm Geordie Valhalla the gaffa roond here - where do ye think ye's are gannin?
TOMMY & BARRY: Get us out of here!
(as Eric was the ruler of Northumbria and betrayed by others perhaps Eric could rescue TOMMY and BARRY from the rival group - so a hero rather than a villain, then the 2 baddies can show up again. Eric can be a Chief Inspector look-a-like in Viking clothing. Maybe can get some coin from Eric Gold - needed to fix the TARDIS?)
B


Scene 3 The Tannery


This scene could be cut

In the village - what's that awful smell. It's the Tannery. Maybe they come across a small child who tells them all about it. Tommy passes out from the smell. Barry revives him then passes out himself.

Scene 4 Alum Works


Again a failed attempt at returning to their home century. They wander through Skinningrove Valley wondering what the smell is again

Two characters approach

ALUM 1 (Markus) Good day gentlemen what, brings you to this fine village
ALUM 2 (Tomas) mmm hhrrrr aagggg - we need your water
TOMMY (whispers to Barry) Say I think I know these two
BARRY (whisper) me too, I don't like the look of em

Screen wobble - dream sequence we see Stormtrooper 1 and 2 who are clearly descendants of Alum 1 and Alum 2

TOMMY Oh we're just passing through.
BARRY Hey, what's that awful smell
ALUM 1 Explains the process of using Urine
ALUM2 mmm hhrrrr aagggg - we need your water
TOMMY hey Barry these two want to take the pi .......
BARRY: Ok Tommy, don't panic. Well chaps, I think we'll be on our way now
ALUM 1 I say, can't you help us out, there's a urine shortage at the mine/factory and you two look absolutely full of it.
ALUM 2 You No Give - we take ! Give us your water NOW !!
TOMMY I'm Off Aaaaaaghhhh
BARRY: Aaagghh wait for me

Both dash back to Tardis and implore Charlie to leave

Maybe a brief prelude in the Tardis where Charlie explains that they've really messed things up and unless they can stay out of trouble long enough for him to fix it they'll never get home

Steel Works


This scene could be amalgamated with Scene 6

Tardis lands on Jetty and they walk up the hill to the Iron Works - there is a billet mill in Second life where we could shoot stuff

Scene-5

The Zeppelin and the Mine

Tommy and Barry arrive outside the School (some references to the Riverside building)
Suddenly a dark cloud appear overhead
A German Zepelin
There is Panic - children come running out of the
School. Charlie bell takes charge and restores order - the hero of the hour.
Leads everyone to the Mine - adults join

CHARLIE: Follow me to the Mine, to the Mine !

Some action will take place in the Mine (Trappy Lad?)
Mining museum to contribute here

Scene 6 WW2


Tardis lands on Jetty (at night) Enter Fatty Smith story. Home guard protecting Skinningrove from invasion (whilst drunk) from the end of the Jetty.
Sergeant arrives to complain that he is shooting at British planes.
There is an air raid - bombs fall - lots of FX - T and B flee back to the Tardis and escape


Scene 7 The Bonfire


Charlie reckons he's now go the Tardis sorted and they can head home. Suddenly there is a cracking noise. The Tardis has suffered damage from the bombing. It lurches and Tommy and Barry fall out and fall through the air

They land by a bonfire. A festival is in progress
A small girl approaches HELL MISTER I'M TINA, WHAT DO YOU THINK OF OUR BONFIRE
BARRY It's wonderful, I think it will run for years and years - perhaps even 28 years (laughs)
TINA Oh I don't think so it's been such hard work
BARRY Oh I'm sure it will run and run
TOMMY I don't care about that - now we'll never be able to get home BOO HOO HOO

cue spooky music

Distant Voice (with Reverb) MARGARET: Tommy Walk into the fire, it will bring you home, walk into the light
BARRY: Calm down Tom, what's up you look white as a sheet
TOMMY: I head a voice Barry, Our lass calling down the ages telling us to walk into the fire. Says it will lead us home.
BARRY: Hah! and you trust her?
TOMMY: No but it's our lass and I have to do as I'm told

Tommy heads into the fire
BARRY: No Tommy No ! but he slips and the both fall in
BOTH: aaaggghhhhh

SUDDENLY ZAP !!!!

28 Images of Skinningrove Bonfire through the years in rapid succession with sound FX

Until ................

Scene 8


They stand by the present day bonfire Nov 5th 2010.
The Tardis returns and Charlie joins them
This scene need concluding dialogue

Ian Wilson at the Mining Museum was worried about Health and Safety so
......

After Tommy and Barry have passed through 28 years of Bonfires and arrived
at the present, the Tardis lands and Inspector Bell emerges...

NOW THEN BOYS AND GIRLS, TOMMY AND BARRY TRAVELLED THROUGH THE FLAMES BUT
THEY ARE ONLY ANIMATED CHARACTERS. YOU MUSTN'T TRY THIS AT HOME BACAUSE IF
YOU WALK INTO THE FIRE YOU WILL BE MAKING A JOURNEY TO HOSPITAL NOT THE
FUTURE.

Then as suggested by Thomasz in Lithuania.

TOMMY: Ok Charlie, we all know about safety with Fireworks in Skinningrove
but you know what?
CHARLIE: What's that Tommy?
TOMMY: When I was in the epicenter of the fire I heard our lass's voice
calling down the ages
CHARLIE: Really !
TOMMY: She said, (adopts Wistful Voice) "You can never go back but you can
always come HOME"

Cue music - long shot on beach - zoom in on BARRY

BARRY SINGS:

Lying awake
Thinking of you
It helps to see
The lonely night time through
You've been away
Seems like a year
but one day is too long
without you here
I know it has to be
That you're away
but I have called you up
with just one thing to say .....

CUE - original full band recording

HURRY HOME, HURRY HOME etc
