The Second Coming (TV Mini-Series 2003– ) Poster

(2003– )

Christopher Eccleston: Stephen Baxter


  • Stephen Baxter : You, are becoming Gods. There's a new master of creation, and it's you! Unraveled DNA, and at the same time you're cultivating bacteria strong enough to kill every living thing! Do you think you are ready for that much power? You lot? You lot? Cheeky bastards. You're running around science like kids with guns, creating a new world, while the world you've got is stinking, but, hands up, hands up anyone who thinks you've got it right. Yeah, there's always one. I can see you. If you want the position of God then take the responsibility.

  • Judith Roach : Do you love me?

    Stephen Baxter : Yeah.

    Judith Roach : Are you the son of God?

    Stephen Baxter : Yeah.

  • [Steve is on TV talking to the masses] 

    Stephen Baxter : Do you think you are ready for that much power? You lot? You lot? You cheeky bastards!

    [the TV cuts out] 

    Peter Gupta : They've taken him off! Stan, ITV!

    Stan Lynch : [impressed]  He swore! Two o'clock, BBC One! He *swore*!

  • Stephen Baxter : God is real, fact. Heaven is real, fact. Hell is real, and its fires are awaiting.

  • Male driver : Here mate, are you alright? Can you tell me who you are?

    [Steve grabs the man] 

    Stephen Baxter : [whispers]  I'm the son of God.

    Male driver : Yeah, and I'm the Queen of Sheba.

  • Stephen Baxter : I know what you're like. I've been you. Knowing there is great evil and doing nothing about it. Keeping my head down, giving a quid to charity, signing a petition, joking about it down the pub, but doing nothing. Even now I want to do nothing, I want to go home, shut the door and pretend that nothing is happening. But I can't - because I was born the son of God. The son of God came to you before and gave you a testament, but you did nothing. This time, there'll be a third testament. A guide to living your lives today, and it will be written by you. In one week, I will be given the third testament, then we'll start again, every country, every religion. And, don't argue. All you Christians out there, don't say "We were right." Because I've seen what you've done. You stupid, stupid people. You've finally did it, I've seen it. Heaven is empty, while hell is bursting to the seams.

  • Stephen Baxter : I am salvation, and I'm taking you forward - all of you. A brand new gospel for the entire human race, coming soon. Stay tuned.

  • Stephen Baxter : It's like my brain's too small to hold it all in. Divinity sorta downloads in little bits.

  • Stephen Baxter : How does that song go? The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades.

    [he puts the glasses on, and a bright light engulfs the stadium]
