Family

Usually called ‘The Doctor.’ Or ‘The Caretaker.’ Or ‘Get off this planet.’ Though, strictly speaking, that probably isn’t a name. Thank you, Strax. And if I’m ever in need of advice from a psychotic potato dwarf, you’ll certainly be the first to know. Please tell me I didn’t get old. Anything but old. I was young! Oh… is he grey? Oh, I always rip out the last page of a book. Then it doesn’t have to end. I hate endings! Come along, Pond! I never know why. I only know who. Bow ties are cool.

Frightened people. Give me a Dalek any day. There are fixed points throughout time where things must stay exactly the way they are. This is not one of them. This is an opportunity! Whatever happens here will create its own timeline, its own reality, a temporal tipping point. The future revolves around you, here, now, so do good! I never know why. I only know who. Look at me. No plans, no backup, no weapons worth a damn. Oh, and something else I don’t have: anything to lose. So, if you’re sitting up there with your silly little spaceships and your silly little guns and you’ve any plans on taking the Pandorica tonight; just remember who’s standing in your way. Remember every black day I ever stopped you and then, and then, do the smart thing. Let somebody else try first.

You are the only mystery worth solving. I never know why. I only know who. Overconfidence, this, and a small screwdriver. I’m absolutely sorted. I know. Dinosaurs! On a spaceship! Please tell me I didn’t get old. Anything but old. I was young! Oh… is he grey? I once spent a hell of a long time trying to get a gobby Australian to Heathrow airport. Oh, I always rip out the last page of a book. Then it doesn’t have to end. I hate endings! Come along, Pond! No. You’re too short and bossy, and your nose is all funny.
