The Whisper Men approach Clarence DeMarco while in jail, producing the coordinates to Trenzalore which he must give to the ‘reptile detective’ so they would end up with The Doctor.
In a jail, Clarence DeMarco shouts at whispering inhuman creatures beyond the bars, insisting they are not real and asking them to stop. The Whisper Men vanish, just to appear inside the guardhouse. They say they want The Doctor. Clarence doesn’t understand. The Whisper Men project Gallifreyan symbols in the air, then forcibly impress them into his mind, along with their meaning and purpose; the instructions are to bring the message to the reptile detective. Questioned about it, the Whisper Men explain they are not human: they are the Intelligence, who knows everything. If Clarence will cooperate, he will be pardoned and he won’t be hanged, he will live a good long life, except for troubled sleep. The man cries he wants to be left alone, while the creatures pass by him.
