The Wrong End Of Time - Part Five

Written by Bruce Stewart

Liz is struggling to find the time barrier.
Gottfried has opened up the skirting board and is struggling to find out what is behind it.
Liz becomes panicky has she realises that the time barrier has vanished.
Gottfried replaces the skirting board.

Commander Traynor is returned to the Common room where Simon and Frank are. Simon tells the Commander that Frank has managed to dismantle the equipment behind the secret door. He also lets slip about the mounted ruby he found. Traynor resolves to re-take command of the base from the Germans.

 



Gottfried, further frustrated, ransacks the store cupboard.
Liz is now back at the Inn. Traynor and Skinner discuss the situation and Traynor suggests that Liz's failure to find the time barrier may be psychological and that she needs to be relaxed to be able to rediscover it again. He suggests that a "jolly romp" with himself, Liz and Skinner may be the answer.
Commander Traynor, Frank and Simon attempt to overpower the guard in the Common room. Frank fakes a collapse as Traynor coshes the guard. There is a further struggle but to no avail as they are caught by Gottfried. Traynor is knocked unconscious. However, Simon escapes and sees another signal from the village. He hides in the Operations room under the sink.

 

Skinner is playfully chasing Liz through the ministry field. As they approach the barrier, Liz appears to have second thoughts. Traynor catches up with them. Suddenly Liz becomes aware of the electronic sound of the time barrier. It's back!
Gottfried is handed another signal from the village.
With the Operations room now empty, Simon tries to escape outside but there is a guard near the door. He tries to sneak past him but upsets a dustbin. Simon desperately tries to remain hidden in the shadows. The guard inspects the bin and, luckily for Simon, discovers a cat. Simon is still able to make good his escape.

Despite protests from her father, Liz makes her way through the time barrier and back to 1940. There she discovers Gottfried searching for Simon. Before long, Simon turns up. He is desperate to escape but Liz convinces him that discovering what happened to her father is more important than their immediate return to 1970.

Gottfried questions a recovering Commander Traynor about the children again. He doesn't get far. Much to the Commander's surprise however, Gottfried produces the ruby that Simon hid.
At the Bull Inn, Jean is angry with her husband for letting Liz go back to 1940. She storms out of the bar. Traynor finishes his drink and moves away to a table with Frank. Alone at the bar, Bradley pulls a towel back to reveal a hidden revolver.

In the lounge, Jean "sees" Simon and Liz as they are taken prisoner again at the naval base.
Traynor reveals to a torn Skinner, the real research that was being carried out at the naval base: a laser tracking system...!
Jean leaves the Inn.
Gottfried confronts Commander Traynor about the ruby. The Commander's story about it being for a lady friend doesn't hold water with the German. Gottfried attempts to deduce it's real purpose. Suddenly, Fritz brings Simon and Liz into the office. He orders that they be placed under close arrest.

 

Jean is now near the time barrier and can hear it's electronic pulsing.
Liz and Simon are thrown into the Common room where Simon reveals to an upset Liz that Frank has lost his memory.
Jean watches horrified as the events in 1940 unfold in her mind's eye.
Simon is tormented by Graz and a struggle ensues. Frank grapples with Graz as Liz and Simon head for the window to escape. Graz fires at Frank then turns to Liz and shoots her at point blank range in the stomach. Gottfried enters and Simon tells a shocked Gottfried that Graz has killed her.
