Tomorrow's Times

Rockem' Sockem' Redford

Season 2 Episode 4

The Toymaker has arranged a fight of the centuries. Within a massive castle in his realm he creates an arena, and temporarily releases the poor souls he has captured over the years, to watch the fights. Redford must beat five of the Toymaker’s challengers for their freedom. If he loses than the ReTardis team is forever playthings of the Toymaker as well as Satchel Man and what is contained within his satchel. A satchel that can only open for the owner.
p. The Archivist minds Redford’s corner whilst, Dr Perry and Wheeler make plans to Steal the Rorrim Mirror. One of three artifacts of power, created from matter left over form the previous universe, before the Big Bang. The second of which is the Crux of Infinity, contained within Satchel Mans bag.
p. Redford’s first opponent is an Ice Warrior from Mars. He struggles fairly early on until The Archivist convinces the house lights to be brought up. This creates an incredible heat in the ring, which weakens the Ice Warrior until Redford is able to beat him.
p. Wheeler and Perry make their way out of the stadium and begin their search for the mirror.
p. Redford’’s next opponent is a Judoon. Redford almost seems to enjoy the next challenge, as the bell rings.
p. Perry and Wheeler are able to track the energy off of the mirror and begin to make their way through the castle.
p. Redford finishes the Judoon. Tired he looks towards his next opponent, an Auton. Unfortunately this fight doesn’t go as smooth. For as each blow makes contact, the Auton is able to stretch and contort its body to absorb the force.
p. Two giant windup robots stop Perry and Wheeler. Fortunately the pair are able to reprogram the robots to act a escorts as they make their way to Toy room.. Their they are able to steal the mirror without the Toymaker’s notice as he is enjoying the games too much.
p. A tired and beat Redford, uppercuts the Auton enough to separate the plastic head, thus winning another match. Then the fourth challenger is brought in. A Silence. During the fight anytime Redford loses sight of the Silence he forgets who he’s in the ring with. The silence takes full opportunity to pummel the Navel Officer, any time he forgets. Meanwhile the Toymaker laughs in glee.
p. Wheeler and Perry make it back. Its clear that they can’t free satchel man, who is chained next to the Toymaker, without him noticing. They begin to talk to The Archivist.
p. As the fight rages on Redford continues to lose sight and forget. Eventually Redford is so surprised by the Silent he lashes out with a massive blow that is enough to knock the Silent out.
p. The Toymaker, furious, calls for the final fighter. The Archivist. Each man knowing that to give up or take a fall would forfeit their groups freedom, begin to fight. It is at this time that the Toymaker notices Wheeler and Perry attempting to rescue Satchel man. He re manacles his prisoner. Wheeler who was able to get Redford’s Squareness gun from the toy room, uses it on the floor beneath the Toymaker. As the Celestial being is distracted, the duo use the mirror to reach in and grab Redford and the Archivist. The group run to the ReTardis and make their escape.
p. The Toymaker grows to giant size destroying part of the stadium around him sees the ReTardis dissapear. He looks at his manacled prisoner, whose plastic head falls off.
p. The audience is then shown: Whilst Red was fighting the Silent, The Archivist was using his sonic screwdriver to reform the Auton from earlier to look like Satchel Man. Wheeler and Perry are able to put up a perception filter around Satchel Man as they release his manacles. The fight ends and the Toymaker thinks he sees them freeing Satchel Man, then manacles the dummy.
p. As the ReTardis crew make their way through the vortex, the Emergency Hologram Ned appears in front of Satchel Man. “Hello Ned.” the Satchel Man says. “Hello Samuel Brickwell.” replies Ned, indignantly.
