Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
The Five Doctors
Crichton: Well, to civilian life.
The Brigadier: You know, I can't tell you how much I was looking forward to this reunion. A chance of re-meeting old friends.
Crichton: There was one chap we tried to get hold of. What was his name? Used to be your scientific advisor.
The Brigadier: Oh, the Doctor.
Crichton: Yes that's right.
The Brigadier: Wonderful chap. All of them.
Crichton: Them? (The intercom beeps.) Yes?
Sergeant [OC]: Excuse me, sir, sorry to interrupt. Someone's arrived.
Crichton: I'm not expecting anyone.
Sergeant: Insists on seeing Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart.
Crichton [OC]: How did he know he was here?
(A figure in a big fur coat heads for the door.)
Sergeant: I'm sorry, sir, you're not allowed in there.
Doctor 2: Not allowed? Me? I'm allowed everywhere. (The Sergeant grabs at the Doctor's coat. The Doctor does a neat turn resulting in him taking the coat off.) Oh, thank you. Brigadier.
The Brigadier: Good heavens. Is it you?
Doctor 2: Yes, yes. For once, I was able to steer the Tardis. And here I am.
Crichton: It's all right, Sergeant.
Sergeant: Very good, sir.
(The Sergeant hangs up the Doctor's coat and leaves.)
Doctor 2: I'm not too late, am I?
The Brigadier: What for?
Doctor 2: For your speech as guest of honour.
The Brigadier: How did you know?
Doctor 2: I saw it in the Times.
Crichton: That's impossible. The reporter's still here.
Doctor 2: Tomorrow's Times. And, er, and who is this?
The Brigadier: That's Colonel Crichton, my replacement.
Doctor 2: Ah. Yes, mine was pretty unpromising, too.
The Brigadier: Come along, Doctor, we'll take a stroll round the ground, shall we? Awfully sorry about this. Do excuse me for a moment.
Doctor 2: You've had this place redecorated, haven't you? Hmm. Don't like it.
(The Brigadier collects their coats and goes to the French windows.)
The Brigadier: Come along, Doctor.
Doctor 2: After you.
The Brigadier: What?
Doctor 2: After you.
The Brigadier: Oh, very well.
(Outside, the Brigadier helps the Doctor on with his coat. The Sergeant enters.)
Sergeant: Everything all right, sir?
Crichton: What the blazes is going on? Who was that strange little man?
Sergeant: The Doctor.
Crichton: Who?

**********************************

Doctor 3: Now what?
(He hears a scream as Sarah falls off the edge of the road in the mist and rolls down the slope.)
Sarah-Jane: Oh. Oh, K9, why didn't I listen to you?
Doctor 3: Hang on a minute. (The Doctor gets out a coil of rope and ties one end to Bessie's front chassis.) Catch hold of this.
(He throws the other end down to Sarah then loops it round a convenient boulder while she ties it around her waist. Then he reverses Bessie slowly, pulling Sarah up the slope.)
Sarah-Jane: Oh, I never thought I'd be so pleased to see anyone.
Doctor 3: I think we should come away from the ledge, don't you?
Sarah-Jane: Wait a moment. It's you.
Doctor 3: Of course it's me. Hello, Sarah Jane.
Sarah-Jane: No, no, it's you you.
Doctor 3: That's right.
Sarah-Jane: No. No, you changed remember? You became all, er
Doctor 3: Teeth and curls?
Sarah-Jane: Yes.
Doctor 3: Yes, well, maybe I did, but I haven't yet.
Sarah-Jane: Oh, I see. No, I don't. Never mind. Yes, well, thank you very much for rescuing me, Doctor, and now perhaps you'll explain why I'm here to need rescuing.
Doctor 3: Steady on, Sarah Jane. I'm not exactly here by choice either, you know.
Sarah-Jane: Then, what are we doing here?
Doctor 3: Well, I'll try and explain. Come on, get in the car.

****************************

Tegan: He's only just about conscious.
Turlough: If only he'd managed to send that signal.
(The First Doctor and Susan walk in. Susan closes the doors.)
Tegan: Who are you?
Doctor 1: More to the point, what are you young people doing inside my Tardis?
Tegan: It's his Tardis.
Doctor 1: And who might he be?
Turlough: The Doctor.
Doctor 1: Hmm? Good grief.
(The Fifth Doctor opens his eyes.)
Doctor 5: You're here. You're here.
Doctor 1: Yes, evidently. Now, take it steadily, my boy, and let me help you up.
Doctor 5: I tried to send a recall signal.
Doctor 1: Yes, it doesn't matter. How do you come to be here?
Doctor 5: Well, the Tardis was, er. I don't know.
Doctor 1: Never mind that.
Susan: Is he really
Doctor 1: Me? Yes. Yes, I'm afraid so. Regeneration?
Doctor 5: Fourth.
Doctor 1: Goodness me! So, there are five of me now! Oh, er, this is Susan.
Doctor 5: Yes, I know.
Doctor 1: And, er, you two are
Turlough: Turlough.
Tegan: And I'm Tegan Jovanka. Who might you be?
Doctor 1: I might be any number of things, young lady. As it happens, I am the Doctor. The original, you might say.
Tegan: But you shouldn't be here at the same time, with him, should you?
Doctor 1: Certainly not.
Doctor 5: It only happens in the gravest emergencies.
Doctor 1: Like now.
Doctor 5: Yes, unfortunately.
Doctor 1: Now look, young lady. Make yourself useful. This young fellow looks as though he needs some refreshment and I know that Susan and I do, too.
Tegan: Hang on a minute.
Doctor 5: Tegan, Tegan, Tegan. Humour him. You know, I sometimes used to get a little tetchy. Fortunately one mellows with age. Turlough will help.
Turlough: Thank you.

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
Warriors Of The Deep – Part 1
Tegan: What's that noise?
The Doctor : Yes, of course. A Sea Base.
(The Doctor tries to rub dirt off a sign on a bulkhead door.)
Turlough: Doctor.
(Turlough offers a handkerchief.)
The Doctor : Oh, thank you. (Chemical store.) Ah ha. That, Turlough, was the all clear.
Tegan: Must be some kind of research station.
The Doctor : No, no, it's a Sea Base. A rather special kind of undersea military colony. Help me get this open, would you? Armed with the sort of missiles that kill life but leave everything else intact.
(The Doctor and Turlough push at the door, but it refuses to move. Tegan gently slides it to one side and goes through.)
Warriors Of The Deep – Part 2
Tegan: When did you meet the Silurians, Doctor?
The Doctor : A long time ago. I let them down then, it seems I'll do so again.
Tegan: Are they hostile?
The Doctor : They're honourable. All they ever wanted to do was live in peace.
Warriors Of The Deep – Part 3
Preston: I suppose you know what you're doing.
The Doctor : The Myrka is a creature of the inkiest depths, or it was until the Silurians tinkered with its biology. Anyway, it has little tolerance to light and hopefully none at all to ultraviolet rays.
Tegan: Can you be sure?
The Doctor : No, Tegan. Perhaps you should ask it nicely to go away.
Warriors Of The Deep – Part 4
The Doctor : Watch the doors.
(The Doctor goes straight to the racks of hexachromite tanks.)
Tegan: What are we looking for?
The Doctor : An alternative to this. Something less lethal that will do the job just as well.
Preston: Do you know what the Silurians want?
The Doctor : Oh yes, all in all they were very forthcoming, really. They intend to launch your missiles and trigger a war to end all wars, between your people, of course.
Turlough: Doctor!
(Everyone scatters and hides as a Sea Devil enters. The Doctor knocks something over and it turns towards him, then fires. The energy bolt punctures a hexachromite tank and the gas kills it, then dissolves its inner organs, which leak out as green goo from its eyes and nose. Everyone comes out of hiding.)
Preston: What happened?
The Doctor : Hexachromite. It does that to all reptile life.
Preston: Then use it on the invaders.
The Doctor : And kill them?
Preston: Why not? They're about to start a war that will destroy everyone on Earth.
The Doctor : I sometimes wonder why I like the people of this miserable planet so much. The Silurians and Sea Devils are noble races. They have skills and talents you pathetic humans can only dream about.
Turlough: That doesn't alter what they're about to do.
The Doctor : No. No, and we must stop them.
Tegan: What's the alternative?
The Doctor : Something that will disable rather than kill.

I watched the colour version of The Macra Terror the other day for the first time.

I actually think in this case the colour version looked better than the b&w one.

It didn't with Power of the Daleks i didn't think, but does here.

I'd also like to mention how much i love the Troughton title sequence in colour. It's fantastic, shame they couldn't use his actual head photo from the real titles rather than an animated one.

Probably because Power was never meant to be colour, it was added by BBC America which rather ticked the original animators off. Since then the colour has been handled by the original animators.

I never knew that.

No wonder i turned the colour Power off after a few minutes.

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
The Awakening – Part 1
The Doctor : Hello? I saw you enter. All I want is Tegan's bag. What have you done with her? I know you can hear me. (The sound of warfare drifts inside.) Gunpowder.
(The shouting gets very loud. The Doctor clutches his head. Suddenly it stops as a young man breaks through a blocked up door. He speaks with a Mummerset accent.)
Chandler: Sorry it took me so long. Thought he'd never eat.
The Doctor : Who are you? I'm the Doctor.
Chandler: Doctor? That don't be a proper name. Will Chandler be a proper name.
(The Doctor steps forward and the young man grabs a piece of stone.)
The Doctor : I won't hurt you.
Chandler: I will hit 'ee. My hand's hurting.
The Doctor : Show me. (The Doctor examines his right arm.) What were you doing in there?
Chandler: It's a priest hole, innit. I hid from fighting.
The Doctor : What fighting?
Chandler: What fighting? Ere, where you been then?
The Doctor : What year is this?
Chandler: Ah, I knows that one. Year sixteen hundred and forty three.
The Doctor : Sixteen hundred and forty three.
Chandler: Is the battle done?
The Doctor : Er, yes, Will. Battle's done. (Tegan and Turlough run in. Will hides behind a pew.) Ah, just in time.
Tegan: Time? We almost didn't make it.
Turlough: We have to get out of here.
Tegan: There's something very strange going on.
The Doctor : Yes, I know.
Turlough: Who is that?
The Doctor : Will Chandler.
Chandler: Sir?
Tegan: Where did he come from?
The Doctor : Ah, well, that's something we're going to have to talk about.
The Awakening – Part 2
Tegan: Fortunately, most of them end up safely locked away.
Hutchinson: Insight is often mistaken for madness, my dear.
Wolsey: I didn't realise that the Malus was so evil.
Hutchinson: Don't worry, Wolsey. It will serve us.
Tegan: It will use you.
The Doctor : Tegan's right. You're energising a force so irresistibly destructive that nothing on Earth can control it. You must stop the war games.
Hutchinson: Stop it? Are you mad? You speak treason.
(Hutchinson levels a pistol at the Doctor.)
The Doctor : Fluently! Stop the games.
Hutchinson: Eliminate him, Wolsey. Now.

Have just finished reading the Colin Baker intro to his 'segment', as such. I still curse the house of Grade daily.
