Could do without the big budget American-style car chases!

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
The Girl Who Died
Clara: Why are you staring?
The Doctor: I don't know. Nothing, probably. Too much time travel, it happens.
Clara: What happens?
The Doctor: People talk about premonition as if it's something strange. It's not. It's just remembering in the wrong direction.

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

The Doctor: (Leading sword practice among the Vikings) So, when I say 'move' you move! When I say 'jump' you say, 'How high?' Unless there's, of course, a gap of some kind, which of course means you jump horizontally. (A tall Viking raises his hand) Yes, what is it, Lofty?
Lofty: Sir, my name's not actually Lofty. It's...
The Doctor: No, it's not. It's 'Lofty' - I've got too much to think about without everybody having their own names, so it's 'Lofty.' (points to him) You're 'Lofty.' (points to a Viking with long hair) You're Daphne, (points to a Viking with an oversized helmet) you're Noggin-the-Nog, (points to a bald Viking with a long beard) ZZ Top, (points to one with braids) and you're, uh, Heidi. So, we'll try that again. Lofty, what is it?
Lofty: Sorry, sir, it's just, why aren't we practising with real swords?
The Doctor: Yes, perhaps you'd like to field this one, Limpy?
(A stocky man sitting is tying a bandage around his knee.)
Limpy: Because we can't be trusted with them.
The Doctor: That's right, yes. You'll be given your real swords back when you can prove that you can wave them around without lopping bits off yourselves. Heidi, why are your eyes closed?
Heidi: Sorry, sir. Just not that good with the sight of blood.
(He gestures towards Limpy.)
The Doctor: No of course you're not.

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

Clara: How's it coming?
The Doctor: Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something.

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

Clara: Okay, it's official. Silence is even worse in a Scottish accent. Are you going to tell me what you're brooding about?
The Doctor: It won't stop, the repair kit I put inside Ashildr, not ever. It'll just keep fixing her.
Clara: Well, good.
The Doctor: I'm not sure, but it's entirely possible she has lost the ability to die.
Clara: The ability?
The Doctor: Oh, dying is an ability, believe me. Barring accidents, she may now be functionally immortal.
(He unlocks the Tardis.)
Clara: If the repair kit never stops working, then why did you give her two?
The Doctor: Immortality isn't living forever. That's not what it feels like. Immortality is everybody else dying. She might meet someone she can't bear to lose. That happens, I believe.

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
The Woman Who Lived
The Doctor: Oh, don't mind me, don't mind me. I'm only going to be a minute. Don't worry. Oh, very warm.
Highwayman: What are you doing?
The Doctor: Oh, just ignore me, I'm just passing through, like fish in the night.
Highwayman: This is a robbery!
The Doctor: It's not fish in the night, it's something else.
(The Doctor gets out of the coach and closes the door.)
Highwayman: This is my robbery.
The Doctor: No, ships in the night. Yeah, something like that.
Highwayman: Step aside or I shall blow your brains out.
The Doctor: Sorry, were you talking to me there? Try again. I promise I'll listen this time.
Highwayman: You have interrupted my robbery, sir, and you will step away, if you wish to take another breath.
Coachman: You're going to get us all killed, if you don't shut your mouth.
The Doctor: Sorry. Sorry, I really was planning to listen that time but, basically, I didn't

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

The Doctor: Oh, Ashildr, I'm sorry.
Ashildr: Who's Ashildr?
The Doctor: You are. That's your name. Ashildr, daughter of Einarr. Chuckles. I used to call him Chuckles. Do you remember?
Ashildr: Yes. I think I remember the village.
The Doctor: You loved that village.
Ashildr: If you say so.
The Doctor: Anyone in that village would have died for you.
Ashildr: Well, they're all dead now, and here I am. So, I guess it all worked out.
The Doctor: Ashildr.
Ashildr: That's not my name. I don't even remember that name.
The Doctor: Well, what, what, what do you call yourself?
Ashildr: Me.
The Doctor: Yes, you. There's nobody else here.
Ashildr: No. I call myself Me. All the other names I chose died with whoever knew me. Me is who I am now. No one's mother, daughter, wife. My own companion. Singular. Unattached. Alone.

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

Ashildr: I've had eight hundred years of adventure, enough to fill a library if you write it down.
(The Doctor picks up a crown from a table.)
The Doctor: A medieval queen? How exciting.
Ashildr: You'd think. It was paperwork and backgammon mainly, as I recall. Ended up faking my own death. Did a bunk before the evisceration. (Memories of her getting out of her coffin and climbing out of a window.) Now this was much more my thing. (She hands him a longbow, and remembers stealing the clothes of a soldier so she could join the line of troops heading to battle.) The Battle of Agincourt. My first stint as a man. No-one will ever know that a mere woman helped end the Hundred Years' War.
The Doctor: You're immortal, not indestructible. You can be hurt, killed even.
(He twangs the bowstring.)
Ashildr: Ten thousand hours is all it takes to master any skill. Over over a hundred thousand hours and you're the best there's ever been. I don't need to be indestructible, I'm superb. You should have seen me. I could shoot six arrows a minute. I got so close to the enemy, I penetrated armour.
The Doctor: How many people have you killed?
Ashildr: You'll have to check my diaries.
The Doctor: You can't remember?
Ashildr: For what it's worth, I've saved many lives too.
(Memories of a crowd with pitchforks chanting 'kill the witch.' Ashildr was dragged along with her hands tied, fastened to a ducking stool and dumped into a lake. She somehow swims unnoticed to a bank behind the villagers and gets away unseen.)
Ashildr: I cured an entire village of scarlet fever once, almost got drowned as a witch for my troubles. Fortunately, I'm really good at holding my breath. Ungrateful peasants.
(The Doctor picks up the beaked leather hood of a seventeenth century plague doctor.)
The Doctor: The Black Death, 1348. I meant to warn you.
Ashildr: I got sick, but I got better.

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

Ashildr: So what's wrong with Clara, then?
The Doctor: There's nothing wrong with her.
Ashildr: Why haven't you made her immortal?
The Doctor: Well, look how you turned out.
Ashildr: She'll die on you, you know. She'll blow away like smoke.
The Doctor: Save your breath.
Ashildr: How old are you, Doctor?
The Doctor: Older than you.
Ashildr: And how many have you lost? How many Claras?

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
The Zygon Invasion
Clara [OC]: Hi, this is Clara Oswald. I'm probably on the Tube or in outer space. Leave a message! (beep)
The Doctor: Hello, it's Doctor Disco. I'm in the twenty first century. I don't know what month. I'm staking out some of the most dangerous creatures imaginable. (Two little girls stop and stare at him.) Operating under deep cover. Trying not to attract suspicion. Give me a call, Clara. Nightmare Scenario. I'm worried. (He follows the little girls to the monkey bars.) Okay. Hey, Monster High and Cinderella. Down off the monkey bars. Listen to me. We've got to talk.

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

Kate: You left us with an impossible situation, Doctor.
The Doctor: Yes, I know. It's called peace

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

The Doctor: This is a splinter group. The rest of the Zygons, the vast majority, they want to live in peace. You start bombing them, you'll radicalise the lot. That's exactly what the splinter group wants.
Jac: Truth or consequences. What exactly does that mean?
Kate: It's just the usual kind of nonsense these idiots call themselves.
Clara: It's in New Mexico.
Kate: What?
Clara: It's a town in New Mexico. Truth or Consequences. Er, they renamed it after a TV show, for a bet or something. It's a Trivial Pursuit question. I used to memorise Trivial Pursuit questions so I could win.
Kate: That's the last place we received signal from Osgood's phone, isn't it? New Mexico.
The Doctor: Okay. Kate Stewart, no bombs for you. Go to Truth Or Consequences. See what you can find out. The Doctor will go to Turmezistan. Negotiate peace, rescue Osgood, and prevent this war, cos that's what he does. Clara, Jac, you stay here. This is your country. Protect it from the scary monsters. And also from the Zygons.
Clara: Fine.
The Doctor: Oh, and do you still have the presidential aircraft?
Clara: I thought you didn't like being President of the World.
The Doctor: No, but I like poncing about in a big plane.

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

Clara: How many troops do you have?
Kate: Not many. Usually on bigger cases we can draft in from the regular army. We can't do that now. The secrecy of the project has to be maintained.
Clara: You got any snazzy weapons?
Kate: There was an attempted Zygon invasion before, in the seventies, eighties. One of our staff was a naval surgeon. Worked at Porton Down on the captured Zygons. Developed Zee-67. It's a nerve gas. Unravels their DNA. Basically turns them inside out.
Clara: Where do you keep it?
Kate: We don't. It was taken. The formula, the lot.
Clara: Who took it?
Kate: Somebody with a Tardis.

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

The Doctor: At ease. I'm the President of the World. I'm here to rescue people and generally establish happiness all over the place. The Doctor. Doctor Funkenstein.
Walsh: Yes, we know who you are.

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

The Doctor: (points to the question marks on Osgood's lapels ) Oh, I see you've accessorised it.
Osgood: Yes.
The Doctor: The old question marks.
Osgood: You used to wear question marks.
The Doctor: Oh, I know, yes, I did.
Osgood: They were nice. Why don't you wear them any more?
The Doctor: Oh, I do. I've got question mark underpants.
Osgood: Makes one wonder what the question is.
(The Doctor pulls up another chair and sits down.)
The Doctor: Which one are you? Human or Zygon?
Osgood: I don't answer that question.
The Doctor: Why not?
Osgood: Because there isn't a question to answer. I don't accept it. My sister and I were the living embodiment of the peace we made. I will give all the lives that I have to protect it. You want to know who I am, Doctor? I am the peace. I am Human and Zygon.
The Doctor: Like a hybrid.
Osgood: A hybrid, if you like.
The Doctor: Well, I'm proud to know you, Osgood. And I promise that I won't tell anyone that you're a human. Zygons need to keep the human original alive to refresh the body print. If you were a Zygon, you'd've changed back within days of your sister's death.
Osgood: Those were the old rules, before Zygons could pluck loved ones from your memory and wear their faces. Zygons only need to keep the original alive if they need more information from them. If the interrogation is over, then the original can die.
