The Fifth Doctor begins walking toward the Rani, followed
by the others. He says to forget what he said about an ingenious operator
being behind these time jumps. The Rani, in the meantime, is walking toward
them. As the Rani instructs the group of monsters to go back to her TARDIS,
the Doctor is trying to summon up his remaining selves? There is a bright
Now the Third Doctor and Liz Shaw are in the park. The
Rani spins around and aims her gun at the Doctor. She tells the Doctor's
companion to come to her. Liz starts walking toward her, then breaks into
a sprint. She struggles with the evil Time Lady to gain control of the
gun, but another woman attacks the Rani and Liz gets away.
The Doctor looks on anxiously as Liz flees when his yellow
Edwardian roadster, Bessie, drives up to the park, driven by Captain Mike
Yates of U.N.I.T. The Doctor runs to Bessie, as Mike shoots the Rani's
gun out of her hands. She immediately runs inside of the bar and the Doctor
and Mike rush away in Bessie.
Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart is sitting in a helicopter
in the air, looking down at Bessie driving up. The Third Doctor jumps out
of Bessie and runs to the helicopter, which has just landed. There is a
bright flash of light. The helicopter lands elsewhere, and the Brigadier
and the Sixth Doctor get out and start walking away from it. The Doctor
says to the Brigadier that he must find his young friends.
The Rani is pacing to and fro in her TARDIS. Her menagerie
is complete apart from one Earthling. She asks her assistant to prepare
to re-materialize at the center of the Earth-time meridian, Greenwich.
Two men walk into a garage and are concerned to find the
door unlocked. They suddenly notice a figure crouching behind one of the
cars - it's Romana, in her second incarnation. She's looking for the Doctor,
but they say that Doctor Legg is the only doctor around. Romana walks out
of the warehouse, and down a sidewalk. Outside of Victoria Bar, Romana
pauses for a second to look at the Rani's discarded gun. She is suddenly
grabbed and dragged into the bar. An evil woman's laugh fills the air,
followed by the sound of a TARDIS dematerialising.
The Third Doctor and Victoria Waterfield are walking
on the deck of the Cutty Sark. The girl asks about the Rani, and the Doctor
states she is behind all this confusion in time although her control is
beginning to break down. They enter the TARDIS, and it dematerialises.
In some sort of courtyard, at the Greenwich Meridian,
the TARDIS rematerializes. The Seventh Doctor gets out of his TARDIS in
time to see the Rani's TARDIS materialize among the pillars of a nearby
walkway, disguised as an obelisk.
Leela walks out of the Rani's TARDIS, looking slightly
confused for a moment. She looked around until she spots the Seventh Doctor.
She explains that the Rani has got a menagerie of clones and a computer
with genetic codes and brain prints of every living creature in the entire
universe. The Doctor is very worried, but Leela remembers she was in the
form of Romana when she was cloned. The Doctor realises that means there
are two Time-brains in the Rani's computer, and they both rush into the
Inside the Rani's TARDIS, Cyrian is reading some information
from the console and announces that the computer will achieve full power
status in thirty seconds.
Back at the Meridian, the Seventh Doctor, now with Ace
and K-9, is installing equipment all over the place, some connected to
the Rani's TARDIS. He tries to override the Rani's computer and harness
the power of the time tunnel to pull her TARDIS in - and not his. Summoning
his previous incarnations, the Doctor flips a switch on one of the pieces
of equipment. There is a loud bang and an explosion in the Rani's TARDIS.
The voice of the Rani, screaming "No" is heard as an aura surrounds her
TARDIS, which promptly disappears. The images of the first two
Doctors escape the Time Tunnel, and the Rani's TARDIS is sucked into it.
While collecting the various bits of equipment he took
from his TARDIS, the Seventh Doctor explains to Ace there were two Time-brains
in the Rani's computer, and he used this to propel her into the trap she
had set for him. His other selves are now free. The Doctor pushes open
the door to the TARDIS and laughs.
