Quotes

[first lines]
Darla: [voice over] First there were the Daleks. And then there was a man who fought them. And then, in time, he died. There are a few, of course, who believe this man somehow survived and that one day he will return. For both our sakes, dearest Hannah, we must hope these stories are true.

I am going to take out a loan...

...drive down to New Orleans to the passport office (where i can get a passport in two or three days), buy a ticket to London (or maybe Cardiff), find Steven Moffat,,, And slap him upside the head.

I forgot that the new Dr Who season started last night - but i had set the DVR.

I just watched it.

I think this one qualifies as a shaggy K9 story.

Now, there's more than a little pathos, particularly concerning the central non-TARDIS-related character, and the situation Rory and Amy are in at the beginning of the episode, and it's pretty good pathos.

But the punchline...

ARRRGGGHHHH!
