Emily: Mid 20s, English Accented Female.Â Not Cockney, but not overly Aristocratic.Â Middle Class.
LONG TERM ROLE.Â THE DOCTOR’S COMPANION.
EMILY Line 1: I don’t know how to thank-you Doctor. To see…even just for a brief moment. To know what other people see. It was…I…(very sincerely) Thank-you Doctor.
EMILY Line 2: No! I may not have known you all that long Doctor, but what you did for me
back there. Letting me see…that’s not the act of…of an animal. I’ve heard what this man
has done, no…you’re not capable of that kind of cruelty.
EMILY Line 3: Sorry Doctor. But…helpless blind girl? Really? I’ll show him how helpless this poor blind girl is.
EMILY Line 4: This is all still so new to me Doctor, just a few days ago I was in my apartment
in London, blind. Now I have my sight and am zooming around space and time in a big
blue box…You have to admit, it’s not your average week.
Obadiah: Mid 40s, English Accented Male. Any Voicing. This Character Does Require special voicing for certain parts, since he is not Human.Â In separate parts of the episode he does switch between human and his alien voicing.Â Please provide alternate voicings of the each lines in a lower, guttural, voicing.Â Alternate voicings do not need to adhere to an English Accent.
OBADIAH Line 1: Where is the Timelord? Have you let him escape?
OBADIAH Line 2: We must regroup, the Timelord is shaking down the house. He’ll rebury the hub, he’ll kill the drones. Do you want to start again? Another thousand years on this planet?
OBADIAH Line 3: Ah, yes, your sonic device. Worked quite well on my brother, did it not? I’m afraid Timelord, that I am not my brother. I have taken precautions. Sonic damper field inside the hub, that’s why I lured you in here. Go on, try it.
Zebadiah: Late 30s, English Accented Male.Â Any Voicing. This Character Does Require special voicing for certain parts, since he is not Human.Â In separate parts of the episode he does switch between human and his alien voicing.Â Please provide alternate voicings of the each lines in a lower, guttural, voicing.Â Alternate voicings do not need to adhere to an English Accent.
ZEBADIAH Line 1: We prefer the term wards Doctor. But yes, they’re all similarly…designed. Makes things quite a bit easier for me and my brother. Less explaining.
ZEBADIAH Line 2: It is a squalid backwater prison hell. And I and my brother have been here for nearly a thousand years. No reprieve, no escape.
ZEBADIAH Line 3: Aghhrrrrr! Stop, stop the noise.
McCormack (aka Police Man #1): Mid 40s, English Accented Male.Â Any Voicing.
POLICE MAN #1: No ma’am. Look I don’t want to frighten you, but
the…the…perhaps it would be better if you just went back in were you can
from and don’t worry yourself none.
MCCORMACK Line 2: So what your saying is that someone you don’t know is trying to stop you from doing something, but you don’t know what, for reasons you can not understand?
MCCORMACK Line 3: I hear by place you under arrest for the murders of Polly Nichols and Annie Chapman in the name of the Queen!
Police Man #2: Any Voicing.Â Male or Female.
POLICE MAN #2 Line 1: Yes, sir. It was him alright. Just walked right up to the
woman he did. Right there in the middle of the street.
POLICE MAN #2 Line 2: Well, I mean chief! We’re just two men. You know the stuff
they say about him? They say he’s stronger than ten men, that he can disappear
into thin air, that he can kill you before you even know he’s there.
Woman #1:Â Late 40s, Early 50s, English Accented Female.
WOMAN #1 Line 1: Here, let me get a closer look at you. I know you from somewhere.
WOMAN #1 Line 2: (in a cracked whisper) Oh my god! It…It’s you! (screams)Â Help! Help! Murder!
Man #1: Any Voicing, except childlike.
MAN Line 1: He’s heading towards that alley, somebody stop him!
