Quotes from "Planet of the Ood"

Today I have some quotes form the episode "Planet of the Ood" for you.

The Doctor: Set the controls to random. Mystery tour. Outside that door could be any planet, anywhere, any when in the whole wide… are you alright?
Donna: Terrified. I mean, history's one thing but an alien planet…
The Doctor: I could always take you home.
Donna: Yeah, don't laugh at me.
The Doctor: I know what it's like. Everything you're feeling right now, the fear, the joy, the wonder, I get that.
Donna: Seriously? After all this time?
The Doctor: Yeah! Why do you think I keep going?

(trapped in handcuffs)
Donna: Well, do something. You're the one with all the tricks. You must have met Houdini.
The Doctor: These are really good handcuffs.
Donna: Well I'm glad of that. I mean, at least we've got quality!

Donna: It's weird, but being with you, I can't tell what's right and what's wrong anymore.
The Doctor: It's better that way. People who know for certain tend to be like Mr. Halpen.

The Doctor: Oh, I've sort of got a song of my own, thanks.
Ood Sigma: I think your song must end soon.
The Doctor: Meaning?
Ood Sigma: Every song must end.
The Doctor: ...yeah.

Donna: A great big empire built on slavery
The Doctor: It's no so different from your time
Donna: Oh! I ain't got slaves
The Doctor: Who do you think made your clothes ?

Christmas Special: The Christmas Invasion

Summary:
The Doctor lands the Tardis in London before he faints. Rose puts him into bed at her Mum's flat and the only thing she, Jackie and Mickey can do is to wait until he wakes up again. It is Christmas and Rose and Mickey go out to do some Christmas shopping but they aren't able to spend some time together because strange figures dressed as Santa start to shoot at them. When they are back at Rose's place there is a different Christmas tree standing in the living room. The tree suddenly gets alive and Rose can wake the Doctor who saves them but they have woken him too soon and he is unconscious again. Then an alien ship turns up and hovers above London. Rose and the other hide with the Doctor in the Tardis and Rose has to play the ambassador of the human race because the Doctor is not awake yet. On the ship she meets Harriet Jones again and soon they notice that the Doctor is awake again. Can he send the aliens back to where they came from?

The first ever Christmas Special of New Who and we already have to get used to a new Doctor. You don't see that much of the Doctor in this episode because he often lies somewhere and is unconscious but in my opinion that's a good way to introduce him. Rose doesn't know what she thinks about this new Doctor and she doesn't know if he still wants to travel with her, which gives the episode an exciting edge. It is so great to see Harriet Jones again and I'm glad that they brought her back into the show. It's a bit like a running gag when she still shows her ID to everybody and even the aliens know who she is. One moment I really like is the fight scene between the Doctor and the Sycorax leader when his hand grows back because he is still in his regeneration phase. When Rose watches him sleep, you just want to tell her that everything will be alright. I can understand why Harriet told Torchwood they should destroy the retreating ship but I can also understand the Doctor who doesn't want to kill someone who capitulated. This must have been Torchwood London, which is destroyed later and it wasn't Jack who fired this weapon because he is the leader of Torchwood Cardiff. It's a bit sad that the snow at the end of the episode is no snow but ash but it's nice to know that the Doctor still wants to have Rose as a companion.

Quotes from "The Fires of Pompeii"

Some quotes from the episode "The Fires of Pompeii" today.

Donna: Don't tell me the TARDIS is gone.
The Doctor: Okay.
Donna: Then where is it?
The Doctor: But you told me not to tell you.
Donna: Don't get clever in Latin.

Donna: You beat her back with a water pistol?! I bloody love you!

The Doctor: Some things are fixed, some things are in flux. Pompeii is fixed.
Donna: But how do you know which is which?
The Doctor: Because that is how I see the universe. Every waking second, I can see what is, what was, what could be, what must not. It's the burden of a Time Lord, Donna. And I'm the only one left.

The Doctor: If I might beg the wisdom of the Gods before we perish? Once this new race of creatures is complete, then what?
Lucius: My masters will follow the example of Rome itself. An almighty empire bestriding the whole of civilization.
Donna: But if you've crashed, and you've got all this technology, why don't you just go home?
Lucius: The heaven of Pyrovilia is gone.
The Doctor: What d'you mean, gone? Where's it gone?
Lucius: It was taken. Pyrovilia was lost, but there is heat enough in this world for a new species to rise.
The Doctor: Yeah, I should warn you it's seventy percent water out there.
Lucius: Water can boil and everything will burn, Doctor!
The Doctor: Then the whole planet is at stake. Thank you. That's all I needed to know.

Born Again: Children in Need Special

Summary:
The Doctor has regenerated into his tenth incarnation and Rose still can't believe that the Doctor is standing in front of her. He manages to convince her that he is really the Doctor and wants to take her to the planet Barcelona but something went wrong during the regeneration and so they head back to Earth.

This special episode for "Children in Need" is set in the Tardis and stars only the Doctor and Rose. It is a nice way to get a glimpse of the Tenth Doctor before the Christmas Special starts and to get used to the new face of the Doctor. I think it's a funny episode and David Tennant can show us what his Doctor will be like. The way he inspects himself and tries to get used to his body is brilliant and it's so cute to watch how he tries to convince Rose that he is still himself, even when his look has changed. A nice extra episode, which you don't need to watch to be able to follow the story but which is a nice little something for the fans.

Quotes from "Partners in Crime"

Today I have some quotes from the first episode of series 4 for you, in which the Doctor and Donna meet again.

(a secretary gives him her phone number)
The Doctor: What is that?
Claire: (flirting) My telephone number.
The Doctor: What for?
Claire: Health and safety. You be health, I'll be safety.

Sylvia: It's my turn to use the car! What do you need it for?
Donna: A quick getaway.

Penny: Is anyone going to tell me what is going on?
The Doctor: What are you, a journalist?
Penny: Yes.
The Doctor: Make it up.

Donna: What are you going to do then? Blow them up?
The Doctor: They're just children, they can't help where they came from.
Donna: Oh, well that makes a change from last time. That Martha must have done you good.
The Doctor: Yeah, she did, yeah.. yeah, she did. She fancied me.
Donna: Mad Martha that one. Blind Martha. Charity Martha.

Penny: What’s happened?
Foster: I think the Doctor’s happened.

The Doctor: Here we are, the TARDIS. It's bigger on the inside than it is on the outside...
Donna: Oh, I know all that bit. Although, frankly, you could turn the heating up.

Series 1 Episode 13: Parting of the Ways

Summary:
The Daleks know that they have been discovered and they are launching their attack. The Doctor and Jack manage to get into one of the Dalek ships and are able to rescue Rose. There they find out how the Daleks were able to rebuild themselves again and the Doctor meets his old enemy the Dalek emperor who survived the Time War. Back on the Game Station, the Doctor tries everything to build up a delta wave to save the people but he knows that he doesn't have enough time. While Jack tries to defend the 500th floor, the Doctor send Rose back into her time to save her. Rose doesn't want to give him up and she finds out that she is Bad Wolf. She has scattered this message throughout time and space because she knows that she can save the Doctor. The Daleks have destroyed the defence of the Game Station and are now in the control room when the Tardis appears with Rose in it. She is able to destroy the Daleks but at what cost?

This episode is a brilliant finale to the first series but unfortunately we have to say goodbye to Christopher Eccleston's Ninth Doctor. He absorbs the energy, which is in Rose to save her again but that leads to his regeneration. I think Jack and the Doctor both love Rose in their own way and they want to see her save although it could mean their death. Rose feels the same for them and I guess that is the reason why she brings Jack back to life while she destroys all the Daleks. The Daleks are great monsters and they always give you a great enemy for an episode of Doctor Who. It is interesting that so many people are willing to follow the Doctor and even die for him when he defends earth or does whatever needs to be done. I guess it still hurts him to loose someone but he has learned to bury it inside of him. That's probably the reason why he always wants to bring events to a good end. I would have liked to see a bit more of Chris Eccleston's Doctor but that is not our thing to decide.

Quotes from "Voyage of the Damned"

It's Wednesday again and today you get quotes from the Christmas Special "Voyage of the Damned".

The Doctor: Titanic. Who thought of the name?
Host: Information: it was chosen as the most famous vessel of the planet Earth.
The Doctor: Did they tell you why it was famous?

Astrid: I used to watch the ships heading out to the stars and always dreamt of… it sounds daft.
The Doctor: You dreamt of another sky. New sun, new air, new life. A whole universe teeming with life. Why stand still when there’s all that life out there?
Astrid: So…you travel a lot?
The Doctor: All the time, just for fun. Well, that’s the plan. Never quite works.
Astrid: Must be rich though.
The Doctor: Haven’t got a penny. (pause) Stowaway.
Astrid: You’re kidding!
The Doctor: Seriously.
Astrid: No!
The Doctor: Oh, yes.
Astrid: How’d you get on board?
The Doctor: Accident. I’ve got this sort of… ship thing. I was rebuilding her, left the defences down, bumped into the Titanic. Here I am. Bit of a party, I thought, why not.
Astrid: I should report you.
The Doctor: Go on then.
Astrid: I’ll get you a drink. On the house.

Foon: Have a buffalo wing. They must be enormous, these buffalo...so many wings!

Mr Copper: I shall be taking you to Old London town in the country of UK, ruled over by Good King Wenceslas. Now human beings worship the great god Santa, a creature with fearsome claws and his wife Mary. And every Christmas Eve, the people of UK go to war with the country of Turkey. They then eat the Turkey people for Christmas dinner...like savages.

Slade: Hang on a minute. Who put you in charge? And who in the hell are you anyway?
The Doctor: I'm the Doctor. I'm a Time Lord. I'm from the planet Gallifrey in the constellation of Kasterborous. I'm 903 years old, and I'm the man who's gonna save your lives and all six billion people on the planet below. You got a problem with that?
Slade: No.
The Doctor: In that case... Allons-y!

The Doctor: First things first. One, we are going to climb through this ship. B... no, two, we are going to reach the bridge. Three, or C, we are going to save the Titanic. And coming in a very low four, or D, or that little IV in brackets they use in footnotes. Why?

The Doctor: Take me to your leader...I've always wanted to say that!

Max Capricorn: They'd stabbed me in the back.
The Doctor: If you had a back.

Max Capricorn: (to the Doctor) A shame we couldn’t work together. You’re rather good. All that banter yet not a word wasted. Time for me to retire. The Titanic is falling, the sky will burn. Let the Christmas inferno commence!

Mr. Copper: (to the Doctor, about Rickston) Of all the people to survive, he is not the one you would have chosen, is he? But if you could choose, Doctor, if you could decide who lives and who dies, that would make you a monster.

Mr Copper: So Great Britain is part of Europe. Just across the greatest channel you've got Great France and Great Germany?
The Doctor: No, no, it's just, it's just France and Germany...Only Britain is great.
Mr Copper: And they are all in war with the continent of America?
The Doctor: No. Well, not yet.

Series 1 Episode 12: Bad Wolf

Summary:
All of a sudden the Doctor, Rose and Jack land on board of the Game Station. They are all in a different game and in these games you aren't just out when you loose, you'll be killed. The Doctor and Jack manage to get out of their games but when they want to save Rose she is hit by a disintegration beam. Now the Doctor wants to know who is behind all this because he remembers that he has been on this satellite before and has thought back then that he saved the human race. It got worse than that because the humans haven't noticed which threat is just in front of their eyes. The Daleks are back and want to be the rulers of Earth. Jack finds out that Rose isn't dead and the Doctor promises to save her.

"Bad Wolf" is the first part of the final two-parter of this series. The Doctor, Rose and Jack are back on Satellite 5, which is now called the Game Station. There are games like "Big Brother" or "The Weakest Link" and they are broadcast straight to earth. It is funny to see how Russel T. Davies has managed to portrait these different games and he gave them a deadly twist. I always wonder how natural it is for John Barrowman to stand naked in front of the camera. It's a shame that they weren't allowed to show the take of his backside. In this episode we are stumbling over the words Bad Wolf again and we'll soon find out what the mean. This was an element which connected all of the episodes in this series. The Daleks are back and they are stronger than before and still wiling to kill every human being and the Doctor as well. This episode is a great opener for the series finale.
