Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
The Magicians Apprentice
Boy: Help me! Someone, please! Help me! Help me!
(A sonic screwdriver flies through the air and lands at his feet.)
The Doctor [OC]: Your chances of survival are about one in a thousand. So here's what you do. You forget the thousand, and you concentrate on the one. Pick it up. I said, pick it up! (The boy obeys.) I'm straight ahead of you, about fifty feet. Can you see me? (The smoke clears to reveal the Tardis and the Doctor.) The device in your hand is creating an acoustic corridor, so that we can talk. Do you understand?
Boy: Who are you?
The Doctor: Oh, I'm just a passer-by. I was looking for a bookshop. How do you think I'm doing?
Boy: This isn't a bookshop.
The Doctor: No, this is a war. A very old one, going by the mix of technology. Which war is this? I get them all muddled up.
Boy: It's just the war.
The Doctor: Where am I? What planet is this?
Boy: I don't understand.
The Doctor: Well, neither do I. I try never to understand. It's called an open mind. Now, you have got to make a choice.
Boy: A choice?
The Doctor: Yes, you have got to decide that you're going to live. Survival is just a choice. Choose it now.
Boy: If I move, they'll get me.
The Doctor: I told you, you have one chance in a thousand. But one is all you ever need. What's your name? Come on, faith in the future. Introduce yourself! Tell me the name of the boy who isn't going to die today.
Boy: Davros. My name is Davros. Hello? Are you still there? Please, you've got to help me. You said I could survive. You said you'd help me. Help me!

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

Ohila: Welcome, Colony Sarff. We are the Sisterhood of Karn. If you do not leave our world immediately, we will take your skin.
Colony Sarff: Where is the Doctor?
Ohila: Where he always is. Right behind you, and one step ahead. Tread carefully when you seek the Doctor, Colony Sarff, or he will be the last thing you find.
Colony Sarff: Davros, creator of the Daleks, dark Lord of Skaro.
Ohila: What of him?
Colony Sarff: Davros is dying.
Ohila: Davros is ancient. He should have been dust centuries ago.
Colony Sarff: He has a message for the Doctor.
Ohila: Then you will give it to me. (Colony Sarff writhes as if trying to change shape or something.) Your powers mean nothing here. Give me the message and leave.
Colony Sarff: Tell the Doctor, Davros knows. Davros remembers. Tell him he must face Davros one last time.

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

Clara: Kate, we can't just phone the Doctor and bleat, he'll go Scottish.

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

Clara: Since when do you care about the Doctor?
Missy: Since always. Since the Cloister Wars. Since the night he stole the moon and the President's wife. Since he was a little girl. One of those was a lie. Can you guess which one?
Clara: He's not your friend. You keep trying to kill him.
Missy: He keeps trying to kill me. It's sort of our texting. We've been at it for ages.
Clara: Mmm. Must be love.
Missy: Oh, don't be disgusting. We're Time Lords, not animals.

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

Missy: You probably want to throw up, don't you? Pick a local. According to you, this is where the Doctor is.
Clara: Okay, how do we find him? How do we know what we're looking for?
Missy: Anachronisms. The slightest, tiniest (an electric guitar riff fills the area) anachronisms.
(The Doctor enters the under the portcullis on a tank, playing rock guitar and wearing shades. The crowd love it. Bors lowers his axe in despair. The Doctor finishes the riff and bows to the Lord and Lady as his speakers give feedback. He is wearing checkered trousers and a black frock coat.)
Bors: Dude! What is that?
The Doctor: You said you wanted an axe fight. (Some chuckles.) Oh, come on. In a few hundred years, that'll be really funny. It's a slow burner.
Bors: A musical instrument is not an axe.
The Doctor: Yes, and a daffodil is not a broadsword, but I still won the last round!

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

The Doctor: Davros is the child of war, a war that wouldn't end. A thousand years of fighting, till nobody could remember why. So Davros, he created a new kind of warrior, one that wouldn't bother with that question. A mutant in a tank that would never, ever stop. And they never did.
Clara: The Daleks?
The Doctor: How scared must you be to seal every one of your own kind inside a tank? (a pause) Davros made the Daleks, but who made Davros?

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

The Doctor: Skaro! You've brought me to Skaro.
Davros: Where does an old man go to die, but with his children?

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

Missy: You know what this is? This thing you're about to destroy? I'll tell you! It's the dog's unmentionables. And you know all about those, don't you? (Missy tickles a Dalek's ball.) This is a Tardis. With this, you can go anywhere, do anything, kill anyone. With this, the Daleks can be more powerful than ever before. (She climbs up onto a ledge opposite the Tardis and the Daleks all turn to look at her. Clara is trying to edge towards the door.) You just need one thing.
The Doctor: (sotto) No. Missy, no!
Missy: Me. You need me. A Time Lady, to show you how it works. With this and with me, everything can be yours. And you can burn it all, for ever and ever and ever. (long pause) Or would you rather just kill me?
(The Daleks turn to their leader.)
Dalek Supreme: Maximum extermination.
Dalek: Exterminate.
(The Daleks fire. Missy's skeleton is briefly visible before she is completely gone.)

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

The Doctor: Please! Please, I'm begging you. Please, please. Please, save Clara.
Davros: I gave the Daleks life. I do not control them.

Disappointing that the number of episodes has been culled once again. Nine and a NYD special so to speak.

The fact they've already filmed a Christmas special for next year suggests to me that there might well be changes afoot either on screen or behind the scenes. Hopefully both.

Synchronicity as I revisited Seeds yet again. The scene that the still is from is quite gripping. Those asthmatic lizard folks are at it again. I wouldn't want to die like that tbh. It looks like it could be nerve shredding ahem

Comedy legends Stephen Fry and Lenny Henry are set to appear in the next series

Both actors have semi-involvement in Doctor Who beforehand. Known for his appearances in QI and Blackadder, Stephen played the Minister of Chance in Doctor Who's first webcast Death Comes to Time and was considered to write an episode for David Tennant's first series as the Tenth Doctor back in 2006, whilst Lenny had played a parody version of the Doctor in a sketch in The Lenny Henry Show back in 1985

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
The Witches Familiar
Missy: Why does the Doctor always survive?
Clara: Because he's clever.
Missy: Yes, but there's lots of clever dead people. I love killing clever clogs, they make the best faces.
Clara: Because he always assumes he's going to win. He always knows there's a way to survive. He just has to go and find it.
Missy: Yes, except this time, he made a will and threw himself a goodbye party. Now, if the Doctor assumes he's going to die, what happens then?

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

Clara: Daleks have sewers?
Missy: With one significant difference.
Clara: Being?
Missy: They're ever so slightly alive.
Clara: They're what?
Missy: How much of a drop would you say that is? Can you see the bottom?
Clara: Too dark. Er, we could chuck a stone down, or something.
Missy: Oh yeah, good idea.
(She pushes Clara down the hole.)
Clara: Oh!
(Scream, thud.)
Missy: Twenty feet.

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

The Doctor: Ask me what I want.
Dalek Supreme: Irrelevant. You will not prevail. You will not succeed.
The Doctor: I've been at the heart of your empire for forty two minutes, and I own it, and I haven't even got out of my chair. Ask me what I want.
Dalek Supreme: What do you want?
The Doctor: Clara Oswald. (He broadcasts across the planet. They can even hear him in the sewers.) I want Clara Oswald, safe, alive, and returned to me immediately. You bring her back. You do that. You do that now. Unharmed. Unhurt. Alive.
Dalek Supreme: Your associate
The Doctor: I saw what happened. I was there. And I'm hoping, for all of our sakes, that it was a trick.
Dalek Supreme: It was not a deception.
The Doctor: Because if Clara Oswald is really dead, then you'd better be very, very careful how you tell me.

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

Clara: What are you doing?
Missy: Murdering a Dalek. I'm a Time Lady, it's our golf.

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

(Clara inside a Dalek casing)
Missy: Say your name.
Clara Dalek: Why?
Missy: Just just say. Just say it.
Clara [in the Dalek]: Clara. / Clara Dalek: Dalek.
Missy: Say it again.
Clara [in the Dalek]: Clara Oswald. / Clara Dalek: Dalek. Dalek.
Missy: One more time.
Clara [in the Dalek]: I am Clara Oswald! I'm Clara Oswald! / Clara Dalek: I am a Dalek! I am a Dalek! I am a Dalek! I am a Dalek!
(As Missy laughs, the gun fires.)
Missy: Whoa! Just don't get emotional. Emotion fires the gun. Okay?
Clara [in the Dalek]: I don't understand. / Clara Dalek: I do not understand.
Missy: Say I love you. Those exact words. Don't ask me why, just say it.
Clara [in the Dalek]: I love you. / Clara Dalek: Exterminate.
(Missy laughs.)
Missy: Say, you are different from me.
Clara [in the Dalek]: You are different from me. / Clara Dalek: Exterminate! Exterminate!
Missy: Say, "Ex-ter-min-ate!"
Clara [in the Dalek]: Exterminate. / Clara Dalek: Exterminate! (Missy laughs, then dodges about as Clara spins the Dalek, firing its gun.) Clara Dalek: Exterminate! Exterminate! Exterminate! Exterminate! Exterminate!
Missy: Cybermen suppress emotion. Daleks channel it through a gun. That's why they keep yelling exterminate. It's how they reload. So, let's go and kill them. Come on.

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

Dalek: Why has the intruder not been exterminated? Explain. Explain. Explain!
Missy: I'm a prisoner of special significance. Count the hearts.
Dalek: You are a Time Lord?
Missy: Time Lady, thank you. Some of us can afford the upgrade. Is it still the same old Supreme Dalek these days? I fought him once on the slopes of the Never Vault. Tell him the bitch is back.

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

The Doctor: My people are alive. They didn't die. I brought them back. I found a way.
Davros: Is this true?
The Doctor: Gallifrey is back in the sky. I don't know where, I may never know. But Gallifrey is back and it is safe from both of us.
Davros: Doctor, my most sincere congratulations.
The Doctor: I'm sorry?
Davros: This is wonderful news. Beyond all hope. I congratulate you.
The Doctor: Why are you saying that?
Davros: A man should have a race, a people, an allegiance. A man should belong, Doctor. Believe me, please. I am happy for you. So happy.

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

Clara Dalek: Doctor!
The Doctor: This city is about to be sucked into the ground. Your own sewer is about to consume you. There's no way you can win, there is nothing you can do, so just tell me, where is Clara Oswald?
Clara Dalek: I am a Dalek.
The Doctor: Yes, you're a Dalek. Where is Clara?
Clara Dalek: I am a Dalek.
The Doctor: Yes, I know that you're a Dalek. Where is Clara Oswald?
(The Dalek stops in front of the Doctor.)
Clara [in the Dalek]: It's me, I'm right here! It's me, I'm in here! It's Clara! / Clara Dalek: I am a Dalek! I am a Dalek!
(Missy runs up with the Dalek gun and points it at the Dalek.)
Missy: Doctor, stop! It's you, isn't it? I mean, no offence, you all look alike, but it is it is you?
Clara [in the Dalek]: Yes, it's me, it's me. I'm right here. / Clara Dalek: Affirmative.
Missy: Clara's dead, Doctor. This is the one that killed her.
Clara Dalek: Do not listen to her. I am a Dalek, I am a Dalek.
Missy: I got her out of the city, but this one caught us and shot her down. There was nothing I could do, I'm afraid.
Clara Dalek: I am a Dalek.
Missy: She ran. She screamed. I'm so glad you didn't have to see that.
Clara Dalek: I am a Dalek. I am a Dalek.
Missy: This one's a mad one, isn't it? I mean, it's almost like, like it's proud.
Clara Dalek: I am a Dalek. I am a Dalek. I am a Dalek!
(Missy moves behind the Doctor and puts the gun in his hand.)
Missy: Kill it, Doctor. They're all going to die anyway. Indulge yourself. Go on, kill the Dalek.
Clara Dalek: Do not kill me! Do not kill me!
(The Doctor points the gun at the Dalek.)
The Doctor: Is Clara dead?
Clara [in the Dalek]: No! Doctor, no! I'm not dead, I'm in here! Can you hear me? / Clara Dalek: I am a Dalek. I am alive. / Clara [in the Dalek]: I'm your friend. I'm your friend! / Clara Dalek: I am your enemy. Your enemy. / Clara [in the Dalek]: No, please, don't. / Clara Dalek: Mercy. Mercy.
The Doctor: You shouldn't be able to say that.
Clara Dalek: Mercy.
The Doctor: That word shouldn't exist in your vocabulary. How did Davros teach you to say that?
Clara Dalek: Mercy.
The Doctor: Why aren't you trying to kill me?
Clara Dalek: Mercy. / Clara [in the Dalek]: Because I would never kill you. You are the last person I would ever kill. / Clara Dalek: I show mercy.
The Doctor: I'm putting the gun down. Open your casing.
Clara [in the Dalek]: How? / Clara Dalek: How?
The Doctor: Just think the word "open". It'll work.
(Clara sighs and obeys. The casing opens to reveal her.)
Missy: Oh, look at that. Now, there's a surprise.
The Doctor: Missy, run.
Clara: Oh, Doctor
(The Doctor starts to disconnect Clara from the Dalek casing.)
Missy: In a way, this is why I gave her to you in the first place. To make you see. The friend inside the enemy, the enemy inside the friend.

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

Young Davros: Help me! You can't leave me, you promised. You said I had a chance. (The Tardis materialises behind him.) Who are you? I don't get it. How did you get there?
The Doctor: From the future.
Young Davros: Are you going to save me?
The Doctor: I'm going to save my friend the only way I can. Exterminate! (He blasts all the hand mines to oblivion.) Come on, I'll take you home.
Young Davros: Which side are you on? Are you the enemy?
The Doctor: I'm not sure that any of that matters, friends, enemies. So long as there's mercy. Always mercy.

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
Under The Lake
Moran: (sighs) Maybe it's some kind of experimental craft that got left behind when they abandoned the site.
Bennett: Wait, you think the Army would just lose a prototype weapon?
Moran: You're new to the military, aren't you, son?

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

The Doctor: Look. Told you. Crew. (Moran and the ghost are squatting on the floor with their backs towards the Doctor and Clara.) Hello, sailors! (The figures stand and turn, their lips moving.) Right, I did not expect that. Hands up who expected that. (The figures walk forward.) Wait, wait. I don't think they're going to hurt us. I think that they're just curious.
(The alien stands nose to nose with the Doctor, while Moran looks down at Clara.)
Clara: Are you sure?
The Doctor: Well, I mean, define sure. Look at you lovely chaps. What's happened to you, then? (The figures turn away, still muttering to themselves.) Come on.
(The Doctor and Clara follow the figures.)
Clara: What are they?
The Doctor: I haven't a clue. Isn't that exciting?

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

Pritchard: Who the hell are you, and what are you doing here?
The Doctor: This is Clara, and I'm the Doctor.
(He shows them his psychic paper.)
Pritchard: You're from UNIT.
The Doctor: Well, if that's what it says.
Pritchard: I'm Pritchard, this is Bennett.
O'Donnell: O'Donnell! Are you really the Doctor? I'm a huge fan! I mean, er, you know. Nice work.
Lunn: Tim Lunn, I sign for Cass.
The Doctor: Tell me, what about those things out there? What are they? Why are they trying to kill us?
Bennett: Well, they're er, they're ghosts.
The Doctor: They're not ghosts.
Lunn: Cass is saying
The Doctor: Thank you, but I actually don't need your help. I can speak sign. (signs) Go ahead. (Cass signs her reply.) No, no, actually, I can't. It's been deleted for semaphore. Someone get me a selection of flags.

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

Pritchard: They're ghosts.
The Doctor: They're not ghosts. Have been trying to kill you, why haven't you abandoned the base?
Pritchard: That was my call. We've got about a trillion dollars worth of mining equipment here. We're not just going to abandon it. What? If it all goes pear-shaped, it's not them that lose a bonus.
The Doctor: It's okay. I understand. You're an idiot.

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

The Doctor: They're ghosts! Yeah, ghosts
Clara: You said there was no such thing. You actually pooh-poohed the ghost theory.
The Doctor: Yes, well, well, there was no such thing as, as socks or smartphones and badgers until there suddenly were. Besides, what else could they be? They're not holograms, they're not Flesh Avatars, they're not Autons, they're not digital copies bouncing around the Nethersphere. No, these people are literally, actually, dead. Wow. This is, it's amazing! I've never actually met a proper ghost.

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

The Doctor: Everything we see or experience shapes us in some way. But these words actually rewrite the synaptic connections in your brain. They literally change the way you are wired. Clara, why don't I have a radio in the Tardis?
Clara: You took it apart and used the pieces to make a clockwork squirrel.
The Doctor: And because whatever song I heard first thing in the morning, I was stuck with. Two weeks of Mysterious Girl by Peter Andre. I was begging for the brush of Death's merciful hand. Don't you see? These words are an earworm. A song you can't stop humming, even after you die.
Clara: Okay, so, the spaceship lands here. The pilot leaves the writing on the wall so whoever sees it, when they die, they become a beacon of the coordinates, while he / she / it snoozes in the suspended-animation chamber
The Doctor: Waiting for his / her / its mates to pick the message up. My God. Every time I think it couldn't get more extraordinary, it surprises me. It's impossible. I hate it. It's evil. It's astonishing. I want to kiss it to death.
