Denis Nayland-Smith:
Ah, Petrie.
Dr. Petrie:
I'm an idiot, an imbecile and an incompetent dolt.
Denis Nayland-Smith:
Did you come all the way to Scotland Yard to tell me that?
Dr. Petrie:
I'm terribly excited but I just found it. It's been on my own bookshelf all these years.
Denis Nayland-Smith:
[reading]
Professor A. G. Heracles.
Dr. Petrie:
The world's top authority.
Denis Nayland-Smith:
Well, I dare say, Petrie, buy would you explain why this book of yours has suddenly become so important?
Dr. Petrie:
Because, his theory may give us the clue that we are desperately searching for. Well, you see, he has a theory, that when the chemical properties of ordinary water are such that they lend themselves to transformation and... tampered with... and he goes on to say here... somewhere... yes, here we are: "water, enriched with a crystallized essence, prepared by the methods which are not as yet practicable to man, might dramatically change its temperature to a cold so intense as to be uncontrollable." There, now, provided that you've got sufficient quantity of water the pressure will build up, which will eventually, with the crystals, become, as he says, uncontrollable!
Denis Nayland-Smith:
But these crystals of which he writes, what would they be composed of?
Dr. Petrie:
Possibly a derivative of opium.

Transcript:
an imbecile,
and an incompetent dolt.
Did you come all the way to
Scotland Yard to tell me that?
I'm terribly excited,
but I just found this.
It's been on my own bookshelf
all these years. Look.
Professor A.G. Heracles.
Mm-hmm, the world's
top authority.
Well, I dare say, Petrie,
but would you explain
why this book of yours
has suddenly become
so important?
Because his theory
may give us the clue
that we are desperately
searching for.
Well, you see,
he has a theory
that when the chemical properties
of ordinary water are such,
then they lend themselves
to transformation when, uh,
tampered with.
And he goes on
to say here somewhere,
if I can find it...
Yes, here we are.
"Water, if mixed with
the crystallized essence,
prepared by the methods,
which are not as yet practicable to man,
might dramatically change
its temperature
to a cold so intense,
as to be uncontrollable."
There now, provided that you got sufficient
quantity of water, the pressure will build up,
which will eventually,
with the crystals,
become, as he says,
uncontrollable.
But these crystals
of which he writes,
what will they be composed of?
Possibly a derivative of opium.
- Excuse me, Sir Denis.
- what is it?
From Istanbul, sir.
Attack on the headquarters
of the governor of Anatolia.
They were all killed.
What about the bible now,
Petrie?
The hand of providence.
- I don't understand.
Anatolia...
...is the largest source
of supply
in the world
of the opium poppy.
- By heavens, I was right!
- Perhaps.
But first of all,
I want to have a word
with your Professor Heracles.
I anticipated you'd try and get in touch
with Heracles' university.
He's gone on a trip
to the Middle East and Turkey.
Turkey?!
The Black sea!
Anatolia perhaps.
[water bubbling]
- Number four condenser.
- Yes, Master.
The crystallization process
is too slow.
We must accelerate it.
Would be rather dangerous,
Father.
There is no time
for further tests.
Number three condenser
is overheating.
No matter.
- Master, it is dangerous.
- obey.
Master, number four!
