Quotes from "The Stolen Earth"

I'm close to the end of series 4 now with my quotes but there is still one more episode after "The Stolen Earth".

The Doctor: Excuse me, what day is it?
Milk Man: Saturday
The Doctor: Saturday. Good, good I like Saturdays.

Jack: Gwen, Ianto. You okay?
Ianto Jones: No broken bones. Slight loss of dignity. No change there, then.

Rose: She can't hear me. Have you got a webcam?
Wilfred Mott: No, (Sylvia) wouldn't let me. She said they're naughty.

Harriet Jones: I thought it was about time we all met, given the current crisis. Torchwood, this is Sarah Jane Smith.
Jack: I've been following your work. Nice job with the Slitheen.
Sarah Jane Smith: Yeah, well, I've been staying away from you lot. Too many guns.
Jack: All the same, might I say, looking good, ma'am.
Sarah Jane Smith: Really? Ooh...
Harriet Jones: Not now, Captain.

Harriet Jones: Harriet Jones. Former Prime Minister.
Dalek: Yes, we know who you are.
Harriet Jones: Oh, but you know nothing about any human, and that will be your downfall.

The Doctor: You were destroyed, in the very first year of the Time War at the Gates of Elysium. I saw your command ship fly into the jaws of the Nightmare Child. I tried to save you.
Davros: But it took one stronger than you. Dalek Caan himself.
Dalek Caan: I flew into the wild and fire. I danced and died a thousand times.

Series 2 Episode 9: The Satan Pit

The Doctor is down in the pit where he finds a huge seal which opens without him doing something. One of the questions the Doctor asks himself is who has build all this down there and then he decides to go down and see what the seal was protecting or imprisoning. Back in the station Rose and the others try to get away from the possessed Ood and towards the rocket but they have to use the tunnels for it. A race of life and death begins and not all of them survive it. When the planet starts to tumble into the black hole Rose is hauled into the spaceship and they try to leave the planet. The Doctor is at the bottom of the pit where he faces the old evil but he discovers that it's just a body and the mind tries to escape. Can he find a solution?

An exciting second part of a great two-parter. I think especially the moment when Rose thinks that she has lost the Doctor is brilliant and she still saves the others from the bad guy. The special effects in this episode are great and I can't imagine how much work it must have been to animate the Satan creature. I still love the Ood although they are possessed in these episodes but they are just cute aliens. There is not that much to say about the story because it's quite straight forward but it was a good idea that the evil tried to get out of the prison inside a human body. The episode has great character moments and you can see again how much the Doctor and Rose would miss each other. Also a nice trick that the Tardis fell into the pit and the Doctor could save the day.

Doctor Who (1996 movie)

The Seventh Doctor transports the remains of the Master back to Gallifrey but the Master's conciousness is still alive and causes the Tardis to malfunction. It lands on earth in San Francisco 1999 and when the Doctor goes out of the Tardis he gets shot. A young Asian guy accompanies him into the hospital where the bullets are removed from the Doctor's body but they think there is something with his heart as well. When Grace Holloway tries to save him, she kills him instead. The Master has found a body but he wants to occupy the body of the Doctor to have more lifes. Lee enters the Tardis and believes the story the Master tells him and so he helps to find the Doctor. Meanwhile the Doctor is able to regenerate but he was dead too long so he can't remember who he is first. The memory gets back bit by bit and he remembers that he has to defeat the Master to save earth. Grace helps him but can they still save the earth before the new century begins?

I don't know why but I wanted to dive into some of the Doctor Who stuff before 2005 and so I watched the 1996 movie with the Eighth Doctor. The story wasn't bad but it was all a bit predictable. I don't know, there was just something missing and I guess that's the reason why they didn't manage a new series back then. It just wasn't exciting enough. But I really liked the interior of the Tardis and the Cloister Room (Now I finally know Where the guys from the podcast got their name from). It was an interesting take that the Master wanted to steal the life of the Doctor but it just wasn't good enough to capture a broad audience I guess.
Now I'm wondering how the Master got to the end of the universe with enough regeneration energy although he was digested by the Tardis and had no regenerations left. Very strange. I guess everything is possible for a time lord.

Quotes from "Turn Left"

What is a universe like without the Doctor? We found out in the episode "Turn Left".

Fortune Teller: I see, a man, the most remarkable man. How did you meet him?
Donna: You're supposed to tell me.
Fortune Teller: I see the future, tell me the past. When did your lives cross?
Donna: It's sort of complicated. I ended up in his spaceship on my wedding day. Long story.

Sylvia: Oh, I know why you want a job with HC Clements, lady. 'Cause you think you'll meet a man with lots of money and your whole life will change. Well, let me tell you, sweetheart, city executives don't need temps except for practice.
Donna: Yeah, well, they haven't met me.

Fortune Teller: Turn right and never meet that man. Turn right and change the world!

Wilfred: Sweetheart, come on. You're not gonna make the world any better by shouting at it.
Donna: I can try.

Rose: Just remember: when you get to the junction, change the car's direction by one minute past ten.
Donna: How do I do that?
Rose: That's up to you.
Donna: Well, I just have to run up to myself and have a good argument.
Rose: I'd like to see that!

Rose: Good luck.
Donna: I'm ready.
Rose: One minute past ten.
Donna: 'Cause I understand now. You said I was gonna die, but you mean this whole world is gonna blink out of existence. But that's not dying, 'cause a better world is gonna take its place – the Doctor's world. And I'm still alive. That's right, isn't it? I don't die. If I change things, then I don't die. That's… that's right, isn't it?
Rose: I'm sorry.
Donna: But I can't die! I've got a future! With the Doctor! You told me!

You know you've watched too much Doctor Who when...

...you start to have strange dreams, which include Daleks.

I've rewatched the last episodes of series two lately and shortly after that I had a really strange dream.
People were living in a kind of colony but when they were against the rules they were killed by Daleks. Some people wanted to flee but most of them were killed except two kids their moms and a strange guy. The kids stole a car, had a crazy car chase with the Daleks and then everyone got into the car. Shortly before they left the colony, they let an oil reservoir explode and nobody could follow them. Then they were vanishing into the woods and that was the point where I woke up.

Definitely too much Doctor Who.

Series 2 Episode 8: The Impossible Planet

Rose and the Doctor land in a storage room and they soon find out that they are on a space station far away from earth. The planet they are on is also quite impossible because it is circling around a black hole but something holds it in place. Strange things happen on the station and the Doctor finds a language that even the Tardis can't translate. Rose encounters the Ood, an alien life form, which the people on the station use as their slaves. They share one consciousness and therefore all think the same. Toby tries to decipher the strange language but is soon possessed by something evil that kills people. The Doctor goes down into the core of the planet to find out what is hiding there. What will he find?

This is a really cool but also quite scary episode, which marks the first part of a two-parter. The special effects of the black hole are amazing and I love the Ood. They kind of look a bit like a squid with these tentacles in their faces and I'm quite happy that we will see them again later in the series. The story is interesting with humans exploring everything they can, trying to find out how things work but maybe they should have gone back when they were still able to. I didn't think there would be a language that the Tardis can't read, so the thing that possesses Toby must be really ancient, even older than the Timelords. That's probably the reason why the Doctor wants to go down into the pit because he wants to know what happens. I think that makes him quite human and you can also see that he regrets that he has taken Rose along, when the Tardis vanishes and they have no chance to return to their time. We are also facing a really exciting cliffhanger before the story continues in the next episode.

Quotes from "Midnight"

It's time for some quotes from the episode "Midnight", in which we don't see much of Donna.

Hostess: Complimentary earphones. Complimentary slippers. Complimentary juice pack and complimentary peanuts. I must warn you, some products may contain nuts.
The Doctor: That'll be the peanuts.

Sky Silvestry: (about the food) Well, what's this? Chicken or beef?
The Doctor: I think it's both.

The Doctor: Should we take a look outside, just lift the screens a bit?
Driver Joe: It's 100% Xtonic out there. We'd be vapourised.
The Doctor: Nah! Those windows are finito glass, they'll give us a couple of minutes. Go on, live a little...

(testing if the creature can mimic him)
The Doctor/Sky: Now then, Sky. Are you Sky? Is Sky still in there? Mrs Silvestry? You know exactly what I'm going to say. How are you doing that? Roast beef. Bananas. The Medusa Cascade. Bang! Rose Tyler, Martha Jones, Donna Noble, TARDIS. Shamble bobble dibble dooble. Oh, Doctor, you're so handsome. Yes, I am, thank you. A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O. First she repeats, then she catches up. What's the next stage?

The Doctor: This little bunch of humans. What do you amount to? Murder? Because this is where you decide who you are. Could you actually murder her, really, or are you better than that?

Series 2 Episode 7: The Idiot's Lantern

Once again, the Doctor and Rose land somewhere where they didn't want to go. It's the day before the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II but when the Doctor looks around, he wonders about the many TV antennas on the roofs and that nearly every household has a TV. It gets even weirder when Rose an the Doctor discover that there are people without faces. Rose and the Doctor split up and Rose finds the alien life form, which is called the Wire, in a TV shop. She looses her face as well and now the Doctor tries everything to save her. The Wire wants to use the energy of the people watching the Coronation to get a physical body again. Is the Doctor able to stop the alien?

This episode is a stand-alone episode after the last two-parter. The only thing I find a bit strange is that Rose is so happy again after they have left Mickey behind in the parallel universe. Maybe it's just her way of dealing with it. That's a bit like the Doctor, never look back because it can hurt. Well, back to this episode. I really liked it and the Wire is a great villain. They have managed to capture the time perfectly and it's cool that Rose finds the answer before the Doctor. That shows again that they are a great team and work well together. I always love the psychic paper and it sometimes shows so strange things to other people. Always god for a laugh. All in all a good episode that lets you calm down a bit before the next two-parter in this series.

Quotes from "Forest of the Dead"

It is time for quotes from the second part of the first ever River Song story.

Other Dave: Who is he? You haven't even told us. You just expect us to follow him.
Professor River Song: He's the Doctor.
Strackman Lux: And who is 'the Doctor'?
Professor River Song: The only story you'll ever tell. If you survive him.

The Doctor: (about his sonic screwdriver) Something's blocking it.
Professor River Song: Put it on red settings.
The Doctor: It doesn't have red settings.
Professor River Song: Turn on the dampers.
The Doctor: It doesn't have dampers.
Professor River Song: It will some day.

Professor River Song: You know when you see a photograph of someone you know but it's from years before you knew them? It's like they're not quite… finished. They're not done yet. Well… yes, the Doctor's here. He came when I called, just like he always does. But not my Doctor. Now, my Doctor… I've seen whole armies turn and run away and he'd just swagger off back to his TARDIS and open the doors with a snap of his fingers. The Doctor in the TARDIS. Next stop, everywhere.

The Doctor: CAL is a child? A child hooked up to a mainframe? Why didn't you tell me this? I needed to know this!
Strackman Lux: Because she's family. CAL. Charlotte Abigail Lux. My grandfather's youngest daughter. She was dying. So we built her a library and put her living mind inside, and a moon to watch over her, and all of human history to pass the time, any era to live in, any book to read. She loved books more than anything and he gave her them all. He asked only that she be left in peace, a secret, not a freak show.
The Doctor: So you weren't protecting a patent. You were protecting her.

The Doctor: I'm giving you back your forests but you are giving me them. You are letting them go.
Possessed Anita: These are our forests. They are our meat.
The Doctor: Don't play games with me. You just killed someone I like, that is not a safe place to stand.

The Doctor: This is not a joke. Stop this now! This is going to kill you! I'd have a chance, you don't have any!
Professor River Song: You wouldn't have a chance and neither do I! I'm timing it for the end of the countdown. There'll be a blip in the command flow. That way it should increase our chances of a clean download.
The Doctor: River, please, no!
Professor River Song: Funny thing is, this means you've always known how I was going to die. All the time we've been together, you knew I was coming here. The last time I saw you- the real you, the future you, I mean- you turned up on my doorstep with a new haircut and a suit. You took me to Verilian to see the singing towers. What a night that was. The towers sang and you cried. You wouldn't tell me why, but I suppose you knew it was time. My time. Time to come to the Library. You even gave me your screwdriver. That should have been a clue. There's nothing you can do.
The Doctor: You can let me do this!
Professor River Song: If you die here, it'll mean I've never met you!
The Doctor: Time can be rewritten.
Professor River Song: Not those times. Not one line. Don't you dare! It's okay. It's okay. It's not over for you. You'll see me again. You've got all of that to come. You and me, time and space. You watch us run.
The Doctor: River, you know my name. You whispered my name in my ear. There's only one reason I would ever tell anyone my name. There's only one time I could…
Professor River Song: Hush now. Spoilers.

Donna: I made up the perfect man. Gorgeous, adores me and hardly able to speak a word. What does that say about me?
The Doctor: Everything. (off Donna's look) Sorry, did I say "everything"? I meant to say "nothing." I was aiming for "nothing," accidentally said "everything."

Professor River Song: (voice-over) When you run with the Doctor, it feels like it will never end. But, however hard you try, you can't run forever. Everybody knows that everybody dies, and nobody knows it like the Doctor. But I do think that all the skies of all the worlds might just turn dark if he ever, for one moment, accepts it.

Professor River Song: (voiceover) Some days are special. Some days are so, so blessed. Some days, nobody dies at all. Now and then, every once in a very long while, every day in a million days when the wind stands fair and the Doctor comes to call, everybody lives.

Series 2 Episode 6: The Age of Steel

The Doctor, Rose and Mickey are able to flee from the mansion together with the resistance group and Rose's father but they are chased by Cybermen and Ricky dies. Now the Cybermen take control of London and lead all the people via their ear-pods into their factories. There they start to convert them into Cybermen. The Doctor comes up with a plan to stop them but the only way to do this is to get into the factory and stop them from inside. Soon most of the group are captured and now it's Mickey's turn to save the world. Will he be able to do it?

I really like the solution of this two-parter although we won't see Mickey for a while now because he stays on the parallel Earth to destroy the remaining Cybermen. It's good that he has finally found his place and isn't the tin dog anymore. That shows that the characters evolve in this series and don't stay the same because I didn't like Mickey very much in the first episodes. It's a bit hard for the people who were turned into Cybermen that the Doctor turns off the emotion control and they realise what happened to them but maybe that's better than feeling nothing at all. The Cybermen are back, defeated by the Doctor once again but that was just one battle and not the war and we will see them again. In this episode the Doctor is his brilliant self again but he couldn't have done it without Mickey's help and Rose's Dad. It's so sad to watch when Mickey and Rose say goodbye and when her father leaves without another word because it is just too much for him to understand that Rose is his daughter. Now we are back again to Rose and the Doctor in the Tardis.

Quotes from "Silence in the Library"

Today you get quotes from the first River Song episode "Silence in the Library".

The Doctor: The Library. So big it doesn't need a name, just a great big "The".
Donna: It's like a city!
The Doctor: It's a world. Literally; a world. The whole core of the planet is the index computer; biggest hard-drive ever, and up here, every book ever written. Whole continents of Jeffrey Archer, Bridget Jones, Monty Python's Big Red Book. Brand new editions, specially printed.

The Doctor: I love biographies.
Donna: Yes, very you. Always death at the end.
The Doctor: You need a good death. Without death there would only be comedies.

The Doctor: Almost every species in the universe has an irrational fear of the dark, but they're wrong... because it's not irrational.

Professor River Song: Whatever came here's long dead
The Doctor: Bet your life?
Professor River Song: Always.

The Doctor: (as Miss Evangelista's consciousness fades away) She's a footprint in the sand and the tide's coming in.

The Doctor: Ah! I'm thick! Look at me, I'm old and thick, head's too full of stuff. I need a bigger head!
