SC1. EXT. CARDIFF CASTLE, CARDIFF, WALES - DAY - 6105

[LIZ CARNEGIE AND IFAN FENCIS, BOTH IN THEIR

FORTIES; ARE KNELT, HANDS FLAT ON THE

GRASS; ATTEMPTING TO RIDE OUT A PASSING

TEMPORAL WAVE. IFAN IS 6’2 WITH DARK HAIR;

LIZ IS A SLIM WOMAN WITH LONG DARK HAIR.

ABOVE THE CASTLE, THE SKIES ABOVE ARE

GREY WITH A TIDAL WAVE OF TEMPORAL

ENERGY FORCING ITS WAY PAST THE

PLANETARY ATMOSPHERE.

AROUND LIZ AND IFAN, TREES COLLAPSE,

UPROOTING FROM THE GROUND. AN EERIE

WHINE, LIKE THE SOUND OF A HUNDRED

TORNADOES RUSHES FORWARDS FROM BEHIND

THE CASTLE. THE DISTANT SOUND OF AN

EMERGENCY SIREN UNDERLIES ALL THIS.

BEHIND THE CASTLE ARE SKYSCRAPERS.]

IFAN FENCIS

(SHOUTING OVER THE STORM.) “I think this is it Liz. They’ve really

done it, the Black Brigade has turned time into a weapon. This is what

its all been about, all these years. The Gravity Wells, the temporal

storms, its all their doing. None of it’s natural. It began here all along.”

LIZ CARNEGIE

“Can we survive?”

IFAN FENCIS

“If history‘s any proof, we must survive.”

SC2. EXT. COLCHESTER HERITAGE PARK - DAY - 6105

[OFF THE A12 MOTORWAY; REPLETE WITH

FUSION DRIVE VEHICLES, HOVERING SEVERAL

FEET ABOVE THE SOLAR PANELLED ROADWAY;

BLUE SPARKS GIVEN OFF BY THE WATER

VAPOUR SURROUNDING THE BONNET.

A STAND OF TREES A MILLENNIA IN AGE DIVIDES

THE MOTORWAY FROM A CLASSY

NEIGHBOURHOOD OF GRAND HOMES.]

COLE JACOB BILLINGTON (V.O.)

“The year Fifty, fifty five was when it all changed for the worse. A

single man can start a spark creating a fire storm of Human hate and

the xenocide of an entire species. I know folks, I’ve seen it first hand.

It only takes a few choice words, backed with the fervour of righteous

indignation; back that up with a charismatic leader and you have a

perfect storm of death and destruction. We all think we can change

the world; very few of us can.”

[IN FRONT OF SEVERAL TREES ARE MEMORIAL

PLAQUES IN DEDICATION TO THE GARCONER

VICTIMS OF THE COLCHESTER CAMP, THE

PARLIAMENT OF WALES FOR OFFERING REFUGE

TO GARCONER, CITIZENS OF LONDON FOR

HIDING GARCONER AND HORATIO DOMINI FOR
