Creating action when writing a story
An action scene from 'Doctor Who' featuring the main characters and the Daleks. There are airbourne space fight scenes that cut back to headquarter scenes. The scene creates suspense as you watch the Doctor and his team fight the Daleks. First shown on the BBC Schools Teachers site as part of the 'Doctor Who Script to Screen competition'.
Split the class into groups and ask each group to focus on a different element. Tell them that they will be feeding back at the end of the clip. The first group should concentrate on the pace and mood of the excerpt, the second group on the characters, the third group on the setting and the fourth group on the plot.
This clip accompanies a BBC Teachers' Pack to support the 'Doctor Who Script to Screen competition'. The pack can be downloaded from bbc.co.uk/schools/teachers/doctorwhocompetition/resources.shtml
