"Doctor Who: The Faceless Ones: Episode 1 (#4.31)" (1967)
Commandant: [incredulously] The pilot said what?
Meadows: [desperately] A police box on the runway.
Commandant: A likely story. Tell him to get back in the stack and await further instructions.
Meadows: Yes, Sir.

Commandant: [after finding plastic cups in the packing case] Plastic cups!
[He turns angrily to the Doctor]
Commandant: Now, I'm going to do some investigating of my own.
Dr. Who: [Brightly] I'm glad I've roused your interest.
Commandant: [Furiously] Oh, but you have. And what I am going to investigate is you and why you're both here in the Airport.
[to Blade]
Commandant: Thank you, Captain Blade.
[to the Doctor and Jamie]
Commandant: Come on, you two, out!
Dr. Who: [sighing] Come on, Jamie. We'd better humor him.

[last lines]
Dr. Who: [happy to see Polly] Commandant, this is the girl I was telling you about.
Polly: [Polly gives him a puzzled look] I beg your pardon?
Commandant: Do you know these gentlemen?
Polly: No. Why? Should I?
Commandant: According to them, they know you.
Dr. Who: Now where have you been, Polly?
Polly: Polly? My name isn't Polly. You must have made a mistake. I've never seen them before in my life!


"Doctor Who: The Faceless Ones: Episode 4 (#4.34)" (1967)
[last lines]
Jean Rock: Negative report from Air Sea Rescue, Sir.
Commandant: But with two aircraft ditching there must be some signs of wreckage.
Dr. Who: [gently] Why do you think the Chameleon plane crashed into the sea?
Commandant: Because it disappeared off our radar screen!
Dr. Who: But it stood still first!
Commandant: Because it must have collided with the RAF plane and dropped like a stone.
Dr. Who: Why do you think that?
Commandant: [snatches a note pad from his desk and draws a big circle, bisected by a horizontal line] You see, when a plane on that radar appears to stand still, it is in point of fact dropping straight down.
Dr. Who: What about straight up?
Commandant: [wearily] Oh my dear Doctor! To get above our radar umbrella like that it'd have to climb vertically until it was a hundred miles high. The darned thing would be in outer space.
Dr. Who: Exactly!


"Doctor Who: The Faceless Ones: Episode 2 (#4.32)" (1967)
[first lines]
Commandant: You're quite sure you've never met these men? They say they know you.
Polly Wright: But they can't know me. This is my first visit to England!
Jamie: But Polly, it's us, me and the Doctor!
Dr. Who: Would you mind telling us your name?
Polly Wright: I am Michelle Leuppi from Zurich.
Dr. Who: You have a passport?
Polly Wright: Yes, of course. Here.
[she hands it over]
Polly Wright: Have I done something wrong?
Commandant: Oh no, I don't suppose there's anything for you to worry about, Miss. May I just ask what you're doing in England?
Polly Wright: I have come here to work. Look, here is my work permit.
Commandant: Oh, yes, that's quite in order. Thank you. Excuse me.
Dr. Who: Where did you learn such excellent English?
Polly Wright: I had an English governess. Would you mind telling me what's happening?
Commandant: Nothing that need concern you, miss, everything's perfectly order. Now if you'd just like to go through there?
Polly Wright: Thank you.
Jamie: Polly, wait!
Commandant: Just a minute young man.
Jamie: But she's a friend of ours - and she saw the murder!
Commandant: You're going to wait here until the Superintendent of police arrives - now understand that?
Dr. Who: Ah, you're going to tell him about the dead body, very sensible.
Commandant: No. I am going to tell him about you.
[into the phone]
Commandant: Put me through to Superintendent Reynolds.
Dr. Who: [whispering] Jamie, I don't think we're very welcome here. When I say run, we run!
Commandant: [into the phone] Hello Super, Commandant. I've got a couple of illegal entrants here. Yes... Immigration Desk Number Five.
Dr. Who: Run!
[before anyone can stop them the Doctor and Jamie shoot past the barrier and run out of the reception area, disappearing into the crowds that throng the main concourse]
