Trivia

The Doctor's quotation from T.H. Huxley, comparing life to a chess game, comes from Huxley's essay "A Liberal Education; and Where to Find It," originally delivered in 1868 at the South London Working Men's College. The Doctor's rendering is slightly off the original text, and it leaves out a linking sentence regarding the nature of the metaphorical chess game: "The player on the other side is hidden from us. We know that his play is always fair, just, and patient." While the Master's play is patient and, for the moment, hidden, it is neither fair nor just. See more »

Quotes

Doctor Who: "The cheeseboard is the world, and the pieces the phenomena of the universe," as my old friend Huxley used to say... Cheeseboard? Chessboard. "And the opponent makes no allowances for mistakes nor makes the smallest concession to ignorance." I'm an ignorant old Doctor, and I've made a mistake.
