‘The Robots of Lonmar’ – Extra Scenes*

This is an Appendix for ‘The Robots of Lonmar’. This page contains some extra scenes featured in the story.


*SCENE #49B – INT – TARDIS CONSOLE ROOM – N/A
While Nyssa, Billy, Jo, Victoria and Ace have been watching the four TARDISes fluctuate in the main station hall, the four Doctors find themselves altogether in the TARDIS console room. The time rotor oscillates up and down and whirs violently, whilst the four Doctors try to regain control.

DOCTOR 2
“Oh my word! Oh my giddy aunt! This is all too much! The TARDIS seems to have gone out of control!” (realises) “Jamie? Jamie, where have you gone?!”

DOCTOR 3
(irritably) “What do you think you’re doing here?!”

DOCTOR 2
(surprised) “What are you doing in my ship?”

DOCTOR 3
“My ship you mean!”

DOCTOR 5
“I think you’ll find it’s our ship, gentlemen.”

DOCTOR 3
(startled) “Where did you spring from, dear chap?”

DOCTOR 5
“I’m surprised you didn’t notice.”

DOCTOR 2
(realises) “Wait a minute! There are four of us now! In the TARDIS!”

DOCTOR 7
“It seems we four have the same ideal to cause us to be in this same place and time. And I should know, since I’ve been here four times over already.”

DOCTOR 2
“Where’s Jamie? Has anyone seen him?”

DOCTOR 5
(reassuringly) “It’s alright! Jamie’s alright. You’ll see him again soon. And Victoria.”

DOCTOR 2
“But…what are we all doing here? In my TARDIS?! Our TARDIS?!”

DOCTOR 7
“We’re actually in four TARDISes. The same one but four different aspects of it with four different selves of us at the same time.”

DOCTOR 5
“But that would mean a hole broken in the space-time continuum! On a massive scale! Much bigger than Belgium!”

DOCTOR 3
“Yes! Well, the point is what are we to do about it?”

DOCTOR 2
“Well I don’t know about you, but I intend to rescue my friend Victoria.”

DOCTOR 3
“Whilst I have it in mind to rescue Jo.”

DOCTOR 5
“And I to rescue Nyssa and Billy.”

DOCTOR 7
“Ace is my friend too! I need to pick her up.”

The four Doctors then hear people talking outside. The voices belong to President Owen, Darvill and the five companions during Scene #49.

DOCTOR 2
“Do you hear that? I hear someone talking.”

DOCTOR 3
“Or some people.”

DOCTOR 7
“Yes. It sounds as if it’s coming from outside.”

DOCTOR 5
“Let’s have a look at the scanner and see what’s out there.”

The TARDIS scanner get activated, as the four Doctors look to see the images outside.

DOCTOR 2
“Look! There’s my Victoria!”

DOCTOR 3
“Yes! She’s with Jo!”

DOCTOR 5
“And Nyssa and Billy are there too!”

DOCTOR 7
“Ace as well! Good! I’m glad she’s safe. For the time being.”

DOCTOR 2
“But how are we going to rescue them? We can’t get out of the TARDIS without being fried to bits by the temporal energy.”

DOCTOR 3
“Now stop worrying, scarecrow. We can handle this!”

DOCTOR 2
(scoffs) “That remains to be seen.”

DOCTOR 5
“Perhaps we could stop arguing and work on a plan of action.”

DOCTOR 7
(reassuringly) “It’s alright. Don’t worry, you three. I’ve got it all planned here.”

DOCTOR 2, 3, 5
(surprised) “You have?!”

Moment of silence.

DOCTOR 3
“How, my dear chap?”

DOCTOR 7
“Well, I’ve already experienced something like this before through you three. Since I’m the latest model.”

DOCTOR 5
“Indeed. And what is it you have in mind?”

DOCTOR 7
“Well…very soon, our TARDISes will detach themselves from each other. Once that happens, we must take our companions with us and carry on as usual travelling through time and space as we normally do. Except…”

DOCTOR 2
“Yes? Except what?”

DOCTOR 7
(gradually) “Except, we need to send ourselves a reminder when the time comes. So what I suggest is this. Each of us must implant a message in our brains.” (to Doctor 2) “So you, short chap. You send a message after the Time Lords banish you…”

DOCTOR 2
(shocked) “What?!”

DOCTOR 7
(continues; to Doctor 3) “And you dandy, you send yourself a message when….”

The Seventh Doctor continues outling his plan whilst he, the Second, Third and Fifth Doctor remain in the TARDIS console room with the action happening outside…


**SCENE #70B – INT – TARDIS CONSOLE ROOM – N/A
In this scene, the four Doctors are in the TARDIS console room whilst Lonmar Station #5 is being destroyed. The four TARDISes start to detach themselves with the four Doctors saying goodbye to each other.

DOCTOR 5
“Well…I suppose this is it. This is where we say goodbye.”

DOCTOR 7
“The TARDISes are beginning to detach themselves. Very soon we should be landing on the planet Lonmar where our respective companions will be waiting.”

DOCTOR 3
“Well goodbye, dear chaps. Nice to meet ourselves again.”

DOCTOR 2
“Yes. I get the sense that this will happen a lot. Bumping into myself.”

DOCTOR 5
“Most likely.”

DOCTOR 2
“Thought so.”

DOCTOR 7
“Now remember what I’ve told you. Set yourself a reminder message once you collect your companions. When the time comes, you’ll know when to return to Lonmar to help them out.”

DOCTOR 5
(to Doctor 7) “Yes. Strange how you know these things, yet somehow they haven’t happened to you. Timey-wimey, as I suppose is the case.”

DOCTOR 7
“Yes. Mind you. I like to be proactive.” (cheerfully) “See you all soon.”

The four Doctors then fade out, as the four TARDISes detach themselves from the same place and time and into different points. They journey off to the planet surface of Lonmar.
