Quotes from "Time Crash" (Children in Need)

Today you get some quotes from the Children in Need special "Time Crash" were the Tenth Doctor meets his fifth incarnation.

The Fifth Doctor: Is there something wrong with you?!
The Tenth Doctor: Oooooh!! There it goes, the frowny face, I remember that one!! Mind you, bit saggier than it ought to be, hair's a bit greyer...that's 'cause of me though. The two of us together, it's shorted out the time differential, should all snap back into place once we get you home...be able to close that coat again. But never mind that! Look at you! The hat, the coat, the crickety-cricket stuff...(less enthusiastic) the stick of celery...Yeah...Brave choice, celery, but fair play to you! Not many men can carry off a decorative vegetable...!
The Fifth Doctor: (furiously) Shut up!...There is something very wrong with my TARDIS and I've got to do something about it very very quickly. And it would help, it really would help, if there wasn't some skinny idiot ranting his head off in my face about every single thing that happens to be in front of him!
The Tenth Doctor: (hurt) Oh. Okay. Sorry. Doctor.

The Tenth Doctor: (excitedly) Oh, the back of our head!
The Fifth Doctor: (frustrated) What?!
The Tenth Doctor: Sorry, sorry, not something you see every day, is it? Back of your own head. Mind you...I can see why you wear a hat. I don't want to seem vain but could you keep that on?

Fifth Doctor: What's this? You've changed the desktop theme, haven't you? What's this one? CORAL?!? It's worse than the leopard skin.

The Tenth Doctor: Now here it comes, the brainy specs. You don’t even need them, you just think they make you look a bit clever.

The Fifth Doctor: It’s like two time zones at war in the heart of the TARDIS. That’s a paradox. Could blow a hole in the space/time continuum the size of... well, actually, the exact size of... Belgium. That’s a bit undramatic, isn’t it? Belgium?
The Tenth Doctor: D'ya need this?
(He offers him the sonic screwdriver)
The Fifth Doctor: No, I'm fine.
The Tenth Doctor: Oh, no, of course. You went all hands-free, didn't you? Like, "Hey, I'm the Doctor. I can save the universe with a kettle and some string. And look at me, I'm wearing a vegetable."

The Tenth Doctor: Take a look.
The Fifth Doctor: Oh. Oh no.
The Tenth Doctor: Oh yes.
The Fifth Doctor: You’re... oh no.
The Tenth Doctor: Here it comes. Yeah, yeah I am.
The Fifth Doctor: A fan.
The Tenth Doctor: Yeah. What?
The Fifth Doctor: This is bad. Two minutes to Belgium.
The Tenth Doctor: What do you mean a fan? I’m not just a fan, I’m you.
The Fifth Doctor: Okay, you’re my biggest fan. Look, it’s perfectly understandable, I go zooming around space and time, saving planets, fighting monsters, and being, well, let’s be honest, pretty sort of marvelous. So naturally now and then people notice me, start up their little groups. That LINDA lot. Are you one of them? How did you get in here? Can’t have you lot knowing where I live.

The Fifth Doctor: I’ve never met anyone else who could fly the TARDIS like that.
The Tenth Doctor: Sorry, mate, you still haven’t.
The Fifth Doctor: You didn’t have time to work that all out. Even I couldn’t do it.
The Tenth Doctor: I didn’t work it out. I didn’t have to.
The Fifth Doctor: You remembered.
The Tenth Doctor: Because you will remember.
The Fifth Doctor: You remembered being me watching you doing that. You already knew what to do because I saw you do it.
The Tenth Doctor: Wibbly-wobbly...
Both Doctors: Timey-wimey!

The Tenth Doctor: Right! TARDISes are separating. Sorry, Doctor, back to long ago! Where are you now? Nyssa and Tegan? Cybermen and Mara and Time Lords in funny hats and the Master? Oh, he just showed up again, same as ever.
The Fifth Doctor: Oh no, really? Does he still have that rubbish beard?
The Tenth Doctor: No, no beard this time. Well, a wife...

The Fifth Doctor: Thank you, Doctor.
The Tenth Doctor: Thank you.
The Fifth Doctor: (smiles) I'm very welcome!

The Tenth Doctor: You know, I loved being you. Back when I first started, at the very beginning, I was always trying to be old and grumpy and important, like you do when you're young. And then I was you. And it was all dashing about and playing cricket and my voice going all squeaky when I shouted. I still do that! That voice thing, I got that from you! Oh! And the trainers, and... (He puts on his glasses and grins) Snap!...'Cause you know what, Doctor? You were my Doctor.
(The Fifth Doctor raises his hat in salute)
The Fifth Doctor: To days to come.
The Tenth Doctor: All my love to long ago.
(The Fifth Doctor disappears)

Series 1 Episode 11: Boom Town

The Doctor, Rose and Jack are in Cardiff because they need to refuel the Tardis and which place would be better for it than the Rift. Soon they are joined by Mickey and think they can spend a calm day until the Doctor notices an old foe in a newspaper. Margaret, a Slitheen that has survived the rocket on Downing Street, is now major of Cardiff and plans to build a power plant on top of the Rift. They soon capture her and she tells them that she wanted to destroy the planet so she could use the energy to come back home. Mickey and Rose have a fight because she always leaves him behind and he comes running every time she calls him. At the same time Margaret and the Doctor have dinner where she tries to poison him but soon her plan B to get home is revealed. Can the Doctor stop her?

I don't know why but I kind of grew fond of the Slitheen. I know that they are supposed to be scary aliens and so on but I somehow like them. Maybe the reason for that is that the Doctor always manages to defeat them in one way or the other. This episode shows how Mickey feels about Rose travelling with the Doctor. He still loves her but he knows that he doesn't have a future with her and wants to start new. On the other hand he is still so attached to her that he always comes when she phones or needs help. The scene with the Doctor and Margaret in the restaurant is just brilliant and I love how they have managed to help her or the Tardis has managed to help her in the end. Jack doesn't have a lot to do in this episode but that's alright because the focus is more on Rose/Mickey and the Doctor/Margaret. An enjoyable episode between two two-parters.

Quotes from "Last of the Time Lords"

Today you'll get the quotes from the final episode of series 3, where Martha leaves the Doctor in the end after the year that never was.

The Master: I remember the days when the Doctor, oh, that famous Doctor...was waging a Time War, battling Sea Devils and Axons, he sealed the Rift at the Medusa Cascade, single-handed. And look at him now, stealing screwdrivers, how did he ever come to this? Oh yeah! Me!
The Doctor: I just... need you to listen.
The Master: No, it's my turn. Revenge. Best served hot!

Professor Docherty: Oh god, I miss Countdown... Never been the same since Des took over... Both Deses... What's the plural for Des? Desie?...Desse?

Soldier: We're getting slaughtered!
Jack: Yeah, that happens to me a lot.

The Master: Dying in your arms. Happy now?
The Doctor: You’re not dying, don’t be stupid. It’s only a bullet. Just regenerate.
The Master: No.
The Doctor: One little bullet. Come on.
The Master: I guess you don’t know me so well. I refuse.
The Doctor: Regenerate! Just regenerate! Please. Please! Just regenerate! Come on!
The Master: And spend the rest of my life imprisoned with you?
The Doctor: You’ve got to! Come on. It can’t end like this. You and me, all the things we’ve done. Axons, remember the Axons? And the Daleks. We’re the only two left. Everyone else… regenerate!
The Master: How about that? I win. Will it stop, Doctor? The drumming? Will it stop?
(The Master dies)

Jack: But I keep wondering...what about ageing? 'Cause I can't die but I keep getting older...the odd little grey hair, you know? What happens if I live for a million years?
The Doctor: (amused) I really don't know.
Jack: Heh, okay vanity, sorry. Yeah, can't help it. Used to be a poster boy, when I was a kid, living in the Boeshane Peninsula. Tiny place. I was the first ever to be signed up for the Time Agency. They were so proud of me. The Face of Boe, they called me. (smiles) I'll see you.
(He runs off)
The Doctor: (quietly) No..
Martha: It can't be.
The Doctor: No...definitely not...no!
(Martha laughs)

Happy Birthday, Anjli.

Series 1 Episode 10: The Doctor Dances

The Doctor, Jack and Rose are trapped in the hospital while the plague spreads through London. When the Doctor ordered the zombies into their room he hasn't thought about the child coming to the hospital because his room is there. Soon they are chased through the hospital until they find a relative safe room. Jack uses his emergency transporter to get back to his spaceship and tries to find a way to teleport the Doctor and Rose out of there. He manages to do it and soon they are on their way to the landing site of the capsule. The zombies are close by and it seems that the capsule wasn't as empty as Jack thought because the nano genes in it brought a child back to life but they didn't make it right. Can everybody be saved?

"The Doctor Dances" is the second part of a two-parter, which plays in wartime England. The second part of this story is as good as the first one. Now we find out why the gas mask seems to be a part of the child and all the other ones who are infected with the plague. First you think Jack abandons the Doctor and Rose but then he is there to save them and he is even willing to give is life just to save everybody from the falling bomb. Luckily the Doctor is there to save his life and in this episode nobody dies because a mother has the courage to tell her child that she will never leave him again. It would be cool to see them again some time later. I really love the last scene where Rose and the Doctor dance and off they are to new adventures with Jack at their side.

Quotes from "The Sound of Drums"

Today you get quotes from the second part of the final three-parter from series 3. I hope you'll enjoy them.

The Doctor: That's him...he's Prime Minister. The Master is Prime Minister of Great Britain.

Sharon Osbourne: I'm voting Saxon; he can tick my box any day.
McFly: We're voting Saxon. Come on, Harry!
Ann Widdecombe: Mr Saxon is just what this country needs. And he's handsome, too.

The Master: Doctor.
The Doctor: Master.
The Master: I like it when you use my name.
The Doctor: You chose it. Psychiatrist's field day.
The Master: As you chose yours. The man who makes people better; how sanctimonious is that?

The Master: (to President Winters) Anything I can do? I could make the tea or isn't that American enough? I dunno, I could make grits. What are grits anyway?

Jack: What do you say I use this perception filter to sneak up behind him and just break his neck?
The Doctor: Now that sounds like Torchwood.
Jack: Still a good plan.
The Doctor: He's a Time Lord, which makes him my responsibility. I'm not here to kill him. I'm here to save him.

The Master: So, Earthlings. Basically, erm, end of the world!...Here. Come. The Drums!

The Doctor: The Toclafane...what are they?
(The Master bends closer)
The Doctor: Who are they?
The Master: Doctor, if I told you the truth, your hearts would break.

The Master: Shall we decimate them? That sounds good, nice word, decimate. (to the Toclafane) Remove one tenth of the population!

The Master: And so it came to pass that the human race fell and the Earth was no more. And I looked down upon my new dominion. As Master of all. And I thought it...good.

Series 1 Episode 9: The Empty Child

The Doctor and Rose follow a capsule through the time vortex, which has the colour for emergencies: mauve. Their chase brings them into London in 1941 at the height of the London Blitz. Rose and the Doctor are separated when he wants to ask about the capsule and Rose follows a child with a gas mask. Soon she dangles from a balloon over London but she is saved by Captain Jack Harkness who doesn't come out of this time too. He is a time agent and wants to make a deal with Rose. They search for the Doctor who has met homeless children and wonders who this strange child with the gas mask is. He manages to get into the hospital where all infected people are and there he meets up with Rose and Jack. Can they get out of the hospital?

"The Empty Child" is the first part of a two-parter and the first time we meet Captain Jack Harkness. Jack comes from the 51st century and has worked as a time agent. Later on this character gets its own series with Torchwood. The Doctor is a bit jealous when he sees Rose and Jack together and also when Jack has this big sonic canon and he only has his sonic screwdriver. I love that "Bananas are good" line, which makes me smile every time. Jack was a good invention from Steven Moffat's brain and we know that he has some fabulous ideas. An interesting first part and you really want to know what's happening after the cliffhanger. Who is this strange child and why is it searching for his mummy?

Quotes from "Utopia"

I have some quotes from the episode "Utopia" for you, the first part of the final three-parter of series three.

(The Doctor gets the mechanism to work)
Professor Yana: How did you do that?
The Doctor: Oh, we’ve been chatting away, I forgot to tell you. I’m brilliant!

Martha: The Doctor sort of travels through time and space and picks people up. God, I make us sound like stray dogs. Maybe we are.
Professor Yana: He… travels in time?
Martha: Don’t ask me to explain it. That’s a TARDIS, that box thing. The sports car of time travel, he says.

"Professor Yana": Did you never think, all those years standing beside me, to ask about that watch? Never? Did you never once think - not ever - that you could set me free?!
Chantho: Chan-I'm sorry-tho! Chan-I'm so sorry...
"Professor Yana": You, with your chan and your tho driving me insane!
Chantho: Chan-Professor, please!
"Professor Yana": That is not my name! "The Professor" was an invention. So perfect a disguise that I forgot who I am.
Chantho: Chan-Then... who are you-tho?
"Professor Yana": (whispered) I am...the Master!
(The Master kills her)

(Having been mortally wounded by Chantho, Professor Yana/The Master is dying)
Professor Yana/The Master: Killed by an insect. A girl. How inappropiate! Still, if the Doctor can be young, and strong, then so can I. The Master... reborn!
(The Master regenerates into new, much younger body)

(The newly regenerated Master has seized control of the TARDIS)
The Master: Doctor!...Oh, new voice. (speaking in different tones of voice) Hello, hello, hello! Anyway, why don't we stop and have a nice little chat while I tell you all my plans and you can work out a way to stop me, I don't think!
Martha: Hold on, I know that voice!
The Doctor: I'm asking you really properly, just stop! Just think!
The Master: Use my name.
The Doctor: Master. I'm sorry.
The Master: Tough!

Series 1 Episode 8: Father's Day

The Doctor asks Rose where she wants to go and she tells him that she wants to see her father. They look at different episodes of her father's life before they go to the day where he dies. But Rose can't just let her father die and so she saves him. The Doctor is angry with her and storms away while Rose sees that her father isn't the hero her mother described. After the Tardis is turned into a normal phone box, the Doctor goes back to Rose and can save her and the wedding party from the appearing monsters but he has no plan how to defeat them. He knows there is a way but he doesn't want to go it. Can Earth be saved?

This episode is the first time that the Doctor is really angry with Rose but I think he is more angry about the fact, that he didn't see it coming when she asked that she wanted to see her father's last day. I think it's really sweet of him that he doesn't say how everyone can be saved because that would mean the death of Rose's father and he doesn't want to see her hurt. Because all of this Rose and her father are able to spend some time together and he can be the hero she always imagined him to be. The monsters are quite scary and really well made. They remind you a bit of a praying mantis. I liked the story about Rose's Dad because it gives her character a bit more depth and we know better why she decides to do this or that sometimes. The clothes and hairstyle of the time are ugly and funny at the same time but they add a great touch to the episode.

Elisabeth Sladen

Today would have been the birthday of Elisabeth Sladen whom we all knew and loved in the role of Sarah Jane Smith, companion of the Doctor and later in the spin-off "The Sarah Jane Adventures".
I didn't know her before Doctor Who was relaunched in 2005 but I think today is a good day to remember, what she and her role meant for you and maybe say a small thank you for being who she was.
Thank you Lis.

Quotes from "Blink"

Today I have some quotes from the episode "Blink" for you. I still think the Weeping Angels are one of the scariest monsters of Doctor Who.

Sally: I love old things. They make me feel sad.
Kathy: What’s good about sad?
Sally: It’s happy for deep people.

Kathy: Are you following me?
Ben: Yeah.
Kathy: You're going to stop following me?
Ben: No, I don't think so.

Billy: Drink? You, me? Now?
Sally: Aren’t you on duty, Detective Inspector Shipton?
Billy: No. Knocked off before I left. Told them I had a family crisis.
Sally: Why?
Billy: Because life is short and you are hot. Drink?

The Doctor: Fascinating race, the Weeping Angels. The only psychopaths in the universe to kill you nicely. No mess, no fuss, they just zap you into the past and let you live to death. Rest of your life, used up, blown away in a blink of an eye. You die in the past and in the present they consume the energy of all the days you might have had. All your stolen moments. They're creatures of the abstract, they live off potential energy.
Billy: What in God's name are you talking about?
Martha: Trust me, just nod when he stops for breath.

The Doctor: Tracked you down with this. This is my timey-wimey detector. Goes ding when there's stuff. Also, it can boil an egg at 30 paces. Whether you want it to or not, actually, so I've learned to stay away from hens. It's not pretty when they blow.

Sally: My God, it’s you. It really is you. Oh, you don’t remember me, do you?
Martha: Doctor, we haven’t got time for this. Migration’s started.
The Doctor: Look, sorry, I’ve got a bit of a complex life. Things don’t always happen to me in quite the right order. It gets a bit confusing at times, especially at weddings. I’m rubbish at weddings. Especially my own.
