It is the birthday of fabulous Scottish actor David Tennant, on whom I have a ridiculous and lengthy crush.

Transcript from this fabulous archive.

The Doctor and Cassandra/Rose rush back into the room where Rose met Cassandra, slamming the door behind them. Cassandra/Rose tries another door but seeing the zombies all clambering to get in behind it, slams it shut again.

CASSANDRA/ROSE
(upset and scared)
We’re trapped! What’re we going to do?

THE DOCTOR
(angrily)
Well, for starters, you’re going to leave that body.

He gestures up at the psychograft with his sonic screwdriver.

THE DOCTOR (CONT’D)
That psychograft is banned on every civilized planet! You’re compressing Rose to death.

CASSANDRA/ROSE
But I’ve got nowhere to go. My original skin’s dead.

THE DOCTOR
Not my problem. You can float as atoms in the air. Now, get out.

He points his sonic screwdriver at her threateningly.

THE DOCTOR (CONT’D)
Give her back to me.

CASSANDRA/ROSE
You asked for it.

Cassandra, as a cloud of light, leaps from Rose’s body into the Doctors.

ROSE
(disorientated)
Blimey, my head…

She looks around the room.

ROSE (CONT’D)
Where’d she go…?

CASSANDRA/THE DOCTOR
(very camp)
Oh, my. This is… different.

ROSE
Cassandra?

CASSANDRA/THE DOCTOR
Goodness me, I’m a man. Yum. So many parts! And hardly used…

Cassandra/the Doctor wiggles around crazily.

CASSANDRA/THE DOCTOR (CONT’D)
Ah.. ah! Two hearts! Oh, baby, I’m beating out a samba!

ROSE
Get out of him.

CASSANDRA/THE DOCTOR
(running a hand down his body)
Ooh, he’s slim. And a little bit foxy.

He raises his eyebrows at Rose.

CASSANDRA/THE DOCTOR (CONT’D)
You’ve thought so too. I’ve been inside your head…

Rose looks sheepish because it’s true.

CASSANDRA/THE DOCTOR (CONT’D)
(coming closer teasingly)
You’ve been looking… you like it.

The zombie people suddenly burst through the doors making them both jump.

CASSANDRA/THE DOCTOR (CONT’D)
(frantically)
What do we do? What would he do?? The Doctor– what the hell would he do?!

ROSE
(spinning around and noticing a ladder)
Ladder… we’ve gotta get up.

Cassandra/the Doctor shoves Rose roughly out of the way to get to the ladder first.

CASSANDRA/THE DOCTOR
Out of the way, Blondie!

The zombies come even closer. Rose hurriedly follows Cassandra/the Doctor up the ladder.
