4/11/06 - Thanks to "k-1.c-1." for this.
A friend of mine worked on Patrick Stewart's recent British TV show and passed this along. He says they changed a lot when they shot it. This was the pilot.
"This" is an early draft of the pilot of Eleventh Hour: Man Without A Shadow written and created by Stephen Gallagher. The pilot episode was later renamed Eleventh Hour: Resurrection. Eleventh Hour is an amazing British Sci-Fi-ish thriller starring Patrick Stewart and Ashley Jensen. This is an investigative thriller set in the present and deals with current science/environmental issues. You must check out the Eleventh Hour Web Site where you can find not only the teaser trailer, but also video synopsis of the first four episodes. I would so love to see this out here in the colonies a little faster than it took for Dr. Who to make it out this way.

- Thanks Vern! Part 1 and Part 2 (in PDF Format) - 10/25/2000 draft by George Nolfi.
In the heart of the beautiful and historically rich Dordogne Valley of France, a team of archaeology students and their professor diligently work to uncover the ruins of a 14th-century castle. For Professor Edward Johnston, the project is the culmination of a lifelong dream. Aided by assistant professor Andre Marek,his son Chris, and students Kate, Stern and François, Johnston has made major strides in unearthing not only La Roque Castle but also a monastery and structures from the surrounding village of Castlegard. But things are about to go haywire... Suspicious of the dig's benefactor, International Technology Corporation (ITC) and the man who runs it, Robert Doniger, Professor Johnston heads to ITC headquarters in New Mexico to get some answers, and while he's away, his students discover a chamber that has been sealed for more than 600 years. Marek and Kate descend into the unstable room, and just before a near disastrous cave-in, they make two startling discoveries -- a bifocal lens, which couldn't have been invented before the chamber was sealed, and even more intriguing, a handwritten plea for help dated April 2, 1357...from Professor Johnston! Determined to solve the mystery, the students head for ITC headquarters, where they are stunned to learn of Doniger's new invention -- a machine that can actually transmit three-dimensional objects through space. Although he meant for the device to revolutionize shipping, Doniger inadvertently opened a wormhole that leads directly to the 14th century, and Professor Johnston, who had insisted on experiencing the discovery himself, is now trapped in a vicious French vs. English feudal war! Can Johnston's loyal students survive one of the most violent battles in world history... and make it back to the 21st century alive?
