Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
Journey To The Centre Of The Tardis
(Inside the Tardis, the power goes out just as Clara operates a control.)
Clara: What have I done?
The Doctor: Er, okay.
Clara: Doctor?
The Doctor: All the electrical impulses are jammed. I can't get the shields back up. She's completely vulnerable.
Clara: I swear I just touched it.
(The Doctor manages to push up a breaker lever and there is a big bang.)
The Doctor: Magnetic hobble-field. We're flying right into it. Clara, stay by me.
Clara: Please tell me there's a button you can press to fix this.
The Doctor: Oh, yes. Big friendly button.
Clara: You're lying.
The Doctor: Yep.
Clara: To stop me freaking out?
The Doctor: Is it working?
Clara: Not so much.

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

Bram: What makes you think we'll help?
(A countdown clock starts on the scanner.)
The Doctor: I just activated the Tardis self-destruct system. One hour until this ship blows. (Bram runs for the door, which slams in his face.) Don't try to leave. The Tardis is in lockdown. I'll open those doors when Clara's by my side.
Bram: You crazy lunatic!
The Doctor: My ship, my rules.
Gregor: You'll kill us all. And the girl.
The Doctor: She's going to die if you don't help me. Don't get into a spaceship with a madman. Didn't anyone ever teach you that? Okay, a little gently persuasion. Say thirty minutes.
(The countdown jumps to 29:59:10.)
Bram: She'll die even quicker now!
The Doctor: We all perform better under pressure. Anybody want to go for fifteen minutes?
Bram: Whoa!
Gregor: Whoa!
The Doctor: It's your own time you're wasting. Salvage of a lifetime. You meant the ship. I meant Clara.

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

Susan Foreman: [as said to Ian and Barbara] Well, I made up the name TARDIS from the initials: Time And Relative Dimension In Space.
The Doctor: ...dimensionally transcendental.
Jo Grant: What's that mean?
The Doctor:: You sexy thing!
Idris: See, you do call me that! Is it my name?
The Doctor: You bet it's your name!
The Doctor 4: [as said to Leela] That's trans-dimensional engineering. A key Time Lord discovery.
The Doctor 9: [as said to Rose Tyler] The assembled hordes of Genghis Khan couldn't get through that door, and, believe me, they've tried.
Martha Jones: It's just a box...
Amy Pond: We are in space!
Martha Jones: ...with that room crammed in!
Ian Chesterton: That thing that looks like a Police Box, standing in a junkyard, it can move anywhere in time and space?

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

Clara: So what do we do? Time for a plan. Do you have a plan?
The Doctor: Well, no. No plan. Sorry.
Clara: If you don't have a plan, we're dead.
The Doctor: Yes, we are. So just tell me.
Clara: Tell you what?
The Doctor: Well, there's no point now. We're about to die. Just tell me who you are.
Clara: You know who I am.
The Doctor: No, I don't. I look at you every single day and I don't understand a thing about you. Why do I keep running into you?
Clara: Doctor, you invited me. You said
The Doctor: Before that. I met you in the Dalek Asylum. There was a girl in a shipwreck and she died saving my life, and she was you.
Clara: She really wasn't.
The Doctor: Victorian London. There was a governess who was really a barmaid, and we fought the Great Intelligence together. She died and it was my fault, and she was you.
Clara: You're scaring me.
The Doctor: What are you, eh? Are you a trick, a trap?
Clara: I don't know what you're talking about!
(And nearly steps back off the edge of the cliff. The Doctor grabs her and holds her tight in his arms.)
The Doctor: You really don't, do you.
Clara: I think I'm more scared of you right now than anything else on that Tardis.
The Doctor: You're just Clara, aren't you.
(Another hug.)
Clara: Okay, I don't know what the hell this is about, but the hug is really nice.

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

Clara: I feel exhausted. I feel
The Doctor: We've had two days crammed into the space of one.
Clara: Why would you say that?
The Doctor: I don't know. I say stuff. Ignore me. Do you feel safe?
Clara: Of course.
The Doctor: Give me a number out of ten. Ten being whoo hoo, one being argh.
Clara: You're being weird.
The Doctor: I need to know if you feel safe. I need to know you're not afraid.
Clara: Of?
The Doctor: The future. Running away with a spaceman in a box. Anything could happen to you.
Clara: That's what I'm counting on. Push the button.

Another image from the 1973 Radio Times special. Wendy Padbury (The second Doctor's companion Zoe) with presumably 'dumped' video tape in reference to the episodes which were 'dumped' by the BBC to 'save space'.

Those wacky people at the BBC

Mind you, I suppose it shows that the Daleks still have the power to scare adults

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
The Crimson Horror
The Doctor: Okay, so. Not London 1893. Yorkshire 1893. Near enough.
Clara: You're making a habit of this, getting us lost.
The Doctor: Sorry. It's much better than it used to be. Ooo, I once spent a hell of a long time trying to get a gobby Australian to Heathrow Airport.
Clara: What for?
The Doctor: Search me. Anyway (A woman screams.) Brave heart, Clara.

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

Gillyflower: Doctor and Mrs Smith. Oh yes, you'll do very nicely.
[i](The Doctor does his best Michael Palin-as-a-Yorkshireman accent.[i](
The Doctor: Oh, grand. Smashing. Eh, the missis and I couldn't be more chuffed, could we, love?
(Mrs Gillyflower leads them down the row of terraced homes.)
Gillyflower: Sweetville will provide you with everything you need. You won't have to worry about a thing ever again.
Clara: The name, Sweetville.
Gillyflower: Yes?
Clara: Why not name it after yourself. After al, it's your creation.
The Doctor: Gillyflowertown. Gillyflowerland. You could have roller coasters.
Gillyflower: It is named in tribute to my partner.
The Doctor: Your late partner?
Gillyflower: No, my silent partner. Mister Sweet likes to keep himself to himself

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

Strax [OC]: Sontar ha!
(Enter Strax, in his Sontaran armour, firing his honking big gun. Vastra is close behind with a sword.)
Vastra: Let's go.
Jenny: No, ma'am. We're not escaping. We've got to help the Doctor with Clara.
The Doctor: Long story.
Strax: What now, madam? We could lay mimetic cluster mines.
Vastra: Strax.
Strax: Or dig trenches and fill them with acid.
Vastra: Strax! You're overexcited. Have you been eating Miss Jenny's sherbet fancies again?
Strax: No.
Vastra: Go outside and wait for me until I call for you.
Strax: But madam, I
Vastra: Go!
Strax: I'm going to go play with my grenades.

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

The Doctor: Mrs Gillyflower, you have no idea what you are dealing with. In the wrong hands, that venom could wipe out all life on this planet.
(Mrs Gillyflower holds out her hands.)
Gillyflower: Do you know what these are? Ha, ha! The wrong hands.

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

Angie: It's you, isn't it. It's from the seventies, but it's definitely you.
Clara: Of course it's not.
Artie: And that's you too, from 1983. I found it at school.
Clara: No, that's just someone who looks like me.
Angie: And that's someone that looks like your boyfriend.
Artie: Is he an alien?
Angie: Why would he be an alien?
Artie: The chin.
Angie: And the time travel?
(Angie clicks on a third image, of Victorian Governess Clara.)
Clara: That's not right.
Angie: You were in Victorian London.
Clara: No, I was in Victorian Yorkshire.
Angie: How come you didn't tell us?
Artie: Time travel, that's so cool.
Angie: Can we have a go?
Clara: Can you have a what?
Artie: We want a shot at the time machine.
Clara: No, no, no, no. Listen
Angie: Okay. Or, we'll have to tell Dad that our nanny's a time traveller.

This new hardback novel by Sophie sounds okay.


Quote:
Past, present and future collide as the Thirteenth Doctor meets classic Doctor Who companion Ace – in the first epic novel from the woman who played her, Sophie Aldred.

Once, a girl called Ace travelled the universe with the Doctor – until, in the wake of a terrible tragedy they parted company. Decades later, she is known as Dorothy McShane, the reclusive millionaire philanthropist who heads global organisation A Charitable Earth.

And Dorothy is haunted by terrible nightmares, vivid dreams that begin just as scores of young runaways are vanishing from the dark alleyways of London. Could the disappearances be linked to sightings of sinister creatures lurking in the city shadows? Why has an alien satellite entered a secret orbit around the Moon?

Investigating the satellite with Ryan, Graham and Yaz, the Doctor is thrown together with Ace once more. Together they must unravel a malevolent plot that will cost thousands of lives. But can the Doctor atone for her past incarnation’s behaviour – and how much must Ace sacrifice to win victory not only for herself, but for the Earth?
Out in Feb 2020.

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
Nightmare In Silver
The Doctor: Well, here we are. Hedgewick's World. The biggest and best amusement park there will ever be, and we've got a golden ticket. Eh? Eh? Fun.
Clara: Fun?
Angie: Your stupid box can't even get us to the right place. This is like a moon base or something.
The Doctor: It's not the moon.
Artie: Actually, I think it does look like the moon, only dirtier.
The Doctor: Hey. Guys. It's not the moon, okay? It's a Spacey Zoomer ride, or it was.
(A door opens in one of the large rocks, and a man wearing a tall hat looks out.)
Webley: Psst. Excuse I. I don't suppose you happen to be my lift off planet? Dave's Discount Interstellar Removals?
Clara: Afraid not.
Webley: They were meant to be here six months ago. Well, that's Dave for you, see? Unreliable.
(A woman's voice cuts through the air.)
Captain [OC]: Stay where you are!
Webley: Oops.
(Webley ducks back inside as the military run in.)
Captain: Throw down your weapons and identify yourselves.
The Doctor: No. No weapons. Golden ticket. Spacey Zoomer. Free ice cream?
Captain: Who are you? This planet is closed, by Imperial order.

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

Clara: I trust the Doctor.
Captain: You think he knows what he's doing?
Clara: I'm not sure I'd go that far.

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

The Doctor: Can someone untie me, please?
Clara: Do you think I'm pretty?
The Doctor: No. You're too short and bossy, and your nose is all funny.
Clara: Good enough.

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

Artie: Thank you for having me. It was very interesting.
The Doctor: My pleasure. Thank you for coming. Now, I've got something for you. It's not from me, it's from the Tardis. Ah. New phone.
Angie: Thanks.
The Doctor: You're welcome.
Angie: Sorry I said this box was stupid.
The Doctor: Bye.
Angie: Bye. Thanks, Clara.
Artie: Thanks, Clara's boyfriend.
(Angie and Artie leave.)
Clara: Thank you, Doctor.
The Doctor: For what?
Clara: Kid's day out. Getting us off the planet alive. Whatever you were doing with the Cybermen. Good night. See you next Wednesday.
The Doctor: Well, a Wednesday, definitely. Next Wednesday, last Wednesday (Clara leaves.) One of the Wednesdays. Impossible girl. A mystery wrapped in an enigma squeezed into a skirt that's just a little bit too tight. Oh yeah. What are you?
