The Wrong End Of Time - Part Three

Written by Bruce Stewart

An angry Gottfried takes Simon and Liz back to the Operations room. On the floor is the unconscious Frank.
Traynor and Skinner are still arguing outside the naval station.
Gottfried asks Liz what is wrong with Frank. He checks the supply room for an explanation but finds none. He tells Liz to look after Frank in the Common room. Simon is fiddling with the radar equipment when Gottfried sees him and tells him to stop, believing that Commander Traynor has told him to sabotage it. He orders Liz to fix them all some food whilst Simon tells him all he knows about the equipment.
Graz and Fritz take the unconscious Frank into the Common room where Commander Traynor is also imprisoned.

 

Outside the Ministry field, Skinner stumbles and clutches his head. He mentions a sudden flash of bright light. His memories of 1940 are starting to return. Traynor tries to question him about the "job" he asked him to do during the German take over.
Liz is sorting through the food in the storeroom cupboard but can only find several tins of pilchards in tomato sauce. She returns to the Operations room where Gottfried and Simon are trying to get the radar equipment working. The German is impressed with Simon's amazing scientific knowledge. Liz is still worried about Frank whilst Simon is perplexed about the vision they had of her father and Traynor outside the station. He suggests they make a plan to escape using the hole in the fence. He admits he knows a lot about the development of radar during the war and is worried that Gottfried may eventually force it out of him.
In the Common room, Liz serves up some food. Commander Traynor quietly asks her to create a diversion whilst he attempts to question the still groggy Frank to discover whether he managed to carry out his instructions. Gottfried enters and prevents the Commander from getting a coherent answer. He invites Traynor to have dinner with him.
At the Bull Inn, Bradley offers a recovering Jean a drink. He warns Jean about digging up the past before leaving. As she sips her tea, she "sees" Liz tending the unconscious Frank in 1940.

Jean relates her vision to Traynor and Skinner and her open-mindedness allows her to piece together what is happening and to identify Frank from it. She asks Traynor for an explanation. Traynor explains that the children are not in danger since they are not actually there but undergoing a hallucination. She asks Traynor what they should do. Traynor is open to suggestions.
Simon is left alone in the Operations room as Fritz and Graz go outside to send a signal. He begins to relate a plan to Liz.

 

Commander Traynor and Gottfried are finishing off their meal of pilchards in the former's office. Gottfried admits to knowing of the Commander's work and of writing to him once before the war. Traynor suddenly recalls Gottfried by name and the help he gave him. However, he quickly realises they are now on opposite sides in a war. Gottfried questions him further about Simon but Traynor is unable to offer any answers about him. Finally, Gottfried asks Traynor about his real work at the naval station.
Liz is washing up in the Operations room when Gottfried enters. Simon and Liz tell him that Sarah saw someone burying something outside. Gottfried is still suspicious of the two but decides to get Sarah and investigate.

In the Common room, Liz tells Sarah to play along as she, Simon and Gottfried take her outside despite protestations from Commander Traynor.
Back at the Bull Inn, Jean and Skinner are alone in their room. They are discussing her visions. Skinner is beginning to accept the strange occurrences as he leaves Jean reading a book.
Gottfried, Sarah, Simon and Liz are near the hole in the fence that marks the entrance to the time barrier. Sarah points out some rocks, which Gottfried investigates. With Gottfried now occupied and Simon helping him, Liz forces Sarah through the time barrier. When she tries to follow, she gets her sleeve caught on the fence and struggles to free herself. Suddenly, she is spotted by Fritz who raises his gun to strike her.
In the present day, Jean lets out a scream...
