PAGE 22 – PANELS 7
Page wide panel. The vast sea of men that make up the armies of Greece spread across the desert horizon. The fierce fighting men of Sparta clearly define the horizon of war before us. KING MENELAUS stands on his golden chariot, pulled by two white stallions at the helm of this host.
Return my woman to me and I shall consider leaving your walls intact.
My host outnumber your brave but few warriors. We would envelop you like the ocean would a grain of sand.
Page wide panel. The huge towering walls of TROY stand strong. The fine archers of troy line the battlements. The massive wooden doors to the great city are locked and barred.
Repeat of 22.2 The small blue box that is the TARDIS now rests lightly on the hot sand in front of the gates of Troy.
Repeat of 22.3. The door of the Tardis is now open. The tenth DOCTOR (David Tennant) pokes his head out of the door.
Good afternoon Menelaus and the men of Greece. You don't know who I am. But I am known to most as the Doctor.
I'd like you to learn four more things about me today.
One, I do despise bullies.
Repeat of 22.4 The Doctor has now fully stepped outside of the Tardis, both doors are wide open but we cant see inside.
Two, I am a sucker for a love story, and oh boy does young Paris of this here nation of Troy love the fair Helen, no longer of Sparta.
Repeat of 22.5 But a small host of figures have started to emerge from the Tardis and flank the Doctor, a band of Vikings, a samurai warrior, a humanoid reptilian battle monk with a quarter staff, a world war II british sniper, an android that is battered and scratched. Figures still in shadow file out from the great and vast Tardis.
Three, when you're as old as I am you have made a friend or two.
Insert panel in the right hand corner of 22.6. Close up on the Doctor.
Four if I can't break history a little, who can?
Well done, sir. Mythic history meets the Doctor's fun-loving self-righteousness. 22.6 begs to be illustrated yesterday. Fun page that captures everything I love about Doctor Who. Kudos.ReplyDelete
I love the dialogue here. Both the historical characters' and the 10th Doctor's, whose voice you perfectly capture.ReplyDelete
