: Really, though, Doctor. Who are you? The Doctor
: Oh... the stuff of legends.
: You get representations of the horned Beast right across the universe in myths and legends of a million worlds. Earth, Draconia, Vel Consadine, Daemos... The Kaled god of war, the same image, over and over again. Maybe, that idea came from somewhere. Bleeding through, a thought of every sentient mind... Ida Scott
: Originating from here? The Doctor
: Could be. Ida Scott
: But if this is the original, does that make it real? Does that make it the actual Devil? The Doctor
: Well, if that's what you want to believe. Maybe that's what the Devil is, in the end. An idea.
: ...Maybe we opened the prison, but not the cell. Ida Scott
: We should go down. I'd go. What about you? The Doctor
: Oh, oh in a second! But then again... That's so human. Where angels fear to tread... Even now, standing on the edge, it's that feeling you get, yea? Right at the back of your head. That impulse... That strange little impulse... That mad little voice saying, "Go on! Go on! Go on!... Go over! Go on!..." Maybe it's relying on that... For once in my life, Officer Scott, I'm going to say... retreat. Ugh, now I know I'm getting old.
[speaks over comm
] The Doctor
: Rose, we're coming back.
: [Everyone is panicking after the Beast reveals itself. The Doctor causes a whistle of feedback
] You want voices in the dark? Then listen to mine! That thing is playing on very basic fears! Darkness! Childhood! Nightmares! All that stuff! Danny Bartock
: But that's how the Devil works! The Doctor
: Or a good psychologist! Ida Scott
: But how did it know about my father!
[the Doctor pauses
] The Doctor
: Okay but what makes his version of the truth any better than mine, hmm? 'Cause I'll tell you what I can see: humans! Brilliant humans! Humans who traveled all the way across space! Flying in a tiny little rocket right into the orbit of a black hole! Just for the sake of discovery, that's amazing! Do you hear me? Amazing! All of you! The Captain! His officer, his elder, his juniors, his friends! All with one advantage: the Beast is alone. We are not. If we can use that to fight against him...
[the Beast telekinetically snaps the capsule cable, cutting the Doctor off
: There was some form of civilization... they buried something. And now it's reaching out, calling. The Doctor
: And you came. Ida Scott
: How could we not? The Doctor
: So, when it comes right down to it, why did you come here? Why did you do that? Why? I'll tell you why: Because it was there! Brilliant! Excuse me, uh, Zack, wasn't it? Zachary Cross Flane
: That's me. The Doctor
: Just stand there, 'cause I'm gonna hug you... Is that all right? Zachary Cross Flane
: 'Spose so. The Doctor
: Here we go. Coming in.
[embraces Captain Crossflane
] The Doctor
: Ah! Human beings! You are amazing! Ha! Thank you.
[releases the captain
] Zachary Cross Flane
: Not at all. The Doctor
: But apart from that, you're completely mad. You should get back in that ship and fly for your lives.
: But... if there's no atmosphere out there, what's that? Ida Scott
: Storms breaking up... gas clouds... we have whole solar systems being ripped apart above our heads, before falling into that thing
] Rose Tyler
: So a bit worse than a storm, then? Ida Scott
: Just a bit.
