A long time ago, on the battlefields of Britain,
an army of enemies came together
to face an impossible opponent
beyond their wildest nightmares.
This unlikely army fought and won the bloodiest of battles.
But only just.
Their opponent had been so remorseless,
the fear it placed in them was absolute.
So they made a pact.
They split their opponent's vanquished body into three pieces...
to be buried at opposite ends of the world,
and vowed that the burial sites
would be forever guarded as a precaution.
The three swore an oath of secrecy.
The terrifying opponent
was to be erased from history.
The three Custodians undertook their long journeys
across land and sea,
locating isolated sites and carrying out their task
with monastic dedication.
Passing their duties down through the generations
to protect the future,
the Custodians were unyielding.
All except one, whose journey was never made,
felled at the first by an unwitting assailant
who would never know the full impact of his arrow.
And time moved on...
obscuring the lost Custodian's body,
leaving the other two Custodians and their descendants
unaware of their comrade's fate
好了 來看下 上次清理到哪裏了
Right. Let's have a look. Where were we?
Oh, yeah. Here we go.
I'm so glad you suggested coming in today.
I hate New Year's Day.
Everything's closed, everyone is hung over
and there's nothing to do.
Also, what is cooler than this?
I never thought I'd be involved in a proper find.
Even if this isn't Alfred the Great.
Well, they found Richard III in a car park in Leicester.
No reason we can't find
Alfred the Great in the Sheffield Town Hall.
Apart from... history and geography.
Yeah, I was never very good at those.
Are we gonna talk about it?
Talk about what, Mitch?
Yeah. Yeah, okay, let's talk about that.
So was it, for you...
I-I'm just checking, I don't want to presume,
like a "happy new year" mates' kiss, or...
Did it feel like a "happy new year" mates' kiss?
It was more...
Kissy than that, I'd say.
Good. Yeah, 'cause it was more than that for me.
我是說 太好了 對我也是
I mean, great. I mean, amazing! For me too!
I-I didn't sleep all night
when I got home, 'cause I was wondering.
Me neither. That's why I texted you to say come in.
What do we do now?
I-I mean, I'm not suggesting that we... here.
Finish this, fix a time to go out properly.
How does that sound?
That sounds awesome.
This is my favourite year ever.
Already. One day in.
Look at this.
Here. Just below the site of the hand.
There's something here. I just can't figure out what it is.
真的 咱們記一下 把它裝起來
Yeah. Let's record it and bag it up.
東西已記錄 編碼和裝袋 不管是啥
Contents recorded, coded and bagged. Whatever it is.
You do realise, this means those drawings could be true?
The Battle of Hope Valley.
I know you love those documents
and I know you want them to be true,
but this is more significant than that.
It's not more significant.
I mean, what if he was part of it?
He could have fought in it.
He could be the key to unlocking what it was all about.
Or he could be nothing to do with it whatsoever.
You see, that's the difference between you and me.
- I am glass half full. - Is that right?
- 100%. - Yeah?
Who was it who doubted that we'd find anything in the first place?
I was expressing...
今時今日 南太平洋 阿努塔島
今時今日 俄♥羅♥斯♥ 西伯利亞
Wait for it. Last one.
See? Cosmic fireworks.
Hey, Doc, I've got to hand it to you,
that is the best fireworks display I've ever seen.
Didn't I say?
19 New Year's Eves in a row, which was your favourite?
- I did love Mesopotamia. - The original.
Really? So, Iraq invented New Year?
Watching the fireworks on top of the Harbour Bridge.
- Until you nearly fell off. - Yeah.
1801, discovering that dwarf planet with your Italian man.
Lovely Giuseppe Piazzi.
Shall we do one more?
- Yeah. - Make it a round 20?
I'm thinking Quantifer,
little settlement on the edge of the known universe,
where it's permanently New Year's Eve. Every day.
They've got the best balloons.
-是急事嗎 -不是 只是地球
- Is that important? - No, not really. It's just Earth.
I leave a little alarm on,
as it's your home, just in case.
- That's bad. - What?
That's worse. That's...
worse than worse!
What are you getting?
