“Mankind doesn’t need warfare and bloodshed to prove itself. Everyday life can provide honor and valor. Let’s hope that from now on this country can find its heroes in smaller places. In the most ordinary of deeds.”—The Doctor (via nevillethebamf)
“A longer life isn’t always a better one, in the end you get tired, tired of the struggle, tired of losing everyone that matters to you, tired of seeing everyone turn to dust.”—The Tenth Doctor(David Tennant) (via readpaintlaugh)
Donna: I’m nothing special. The Doctor: Yes you are, you’re brilliant. Donna: She said that. The Doctor: Who did? Donna: That woman. I can’t remember. The Doctor: She never existed now. Donna: No, but she said, the stars, she said the stars are going out. The Doctor: Yeah, but that world’s gone. Donna: No, but she said it was all worlds, every world. She said the darkness is coming, even here. The Doctor: Who was she? Donna: I don’t know. The Doctor: What did she look like? Donna: She was… blonde. The Doctor: What was her name? Donna: I don’t know. The Doctor: Donna, what was her name? Donna: But she told me, to warn you. She said two words… The Doctor: What two words? What were they? What did she say? Donna: Bad Wolf.
“He never raised his voice, that was the worst thing; the fury of the Time Lord. And then we discovered why. Why this Doctor, who had fought Gods and demons, why he’d run away from us and hidden. He was being kind. He wrapped my father in unbreakable chains forged by the heart of a dwarf star. He tricked my mother into the event horizon of a collapsing galaxy, to be imprisoned there, forever. He still visits my sister, once a year, every year. I wonder if one day he might forgive her, but there she is, can you see? He trapped her inside a mirror. Every mirror. If ever you look at your reflection and see something move behind you, just for a second, that’s her. That’s always her. As for me, I was suspended in time, and The Doctor put me to work standing over the fields of England. As their protector. We wanted to live forever, so The Doctor made sure that we did.”—Son of Mine (Doctor Who, S03E09)
“Shuttles five and six now docking. Guests are reminded that platform one forbids the use of weapons, teleportation and religion. Earth death is scheduled for 15:39, followed by drinks in the Manchester suite.”—The End of the World (via carakinwonder)
Doctor: How about a different planet? Martha: Can we go to yours? Doctor: Nah, there’s plenty of other places. Martha: Oh, come on though! I mean, planet of he Time Lords, that’s gotta be worth a look. What’s it like. Doctor: It’s beautiful, yeah. Martha: Is it like, you know, outer space cities, all spires and stuff? Doctor: I suppose it is. Martha: Great big temples and cathedrals? Doctor: Yeah. Martha: Lots of planets in the sky? Doctor: The sky’s a burnt orange, with the Citadel enclosed in a mighty glass dome, shining under the twin suns. Beyond that, the mountains go on forever. Slopes of deep red grass, capped with snow. Martha: Could we go there? Doctor: Nah, where’s the fun for me? I don’t wanna go home!
