Classic Doctor Who: Page 8

"My dear, I don't think he's as stupid as he seems."

"My dear, nobody could be as stupid as he seems."

The Countess and Count discuss the Doctor, in "City of Death"

"You know what I don't understand?"

"I expect so."

Duggan and Romana, in "City of Death"

"If you do that one more time, Duggan, I'm going to take very, very severe measures."

"Yeah, like what?"

"Er... I'm going to ask you not to."

The Doctor and Duggan, in "City of Death"

Duggan, why is it that every time I start to talk to someone, you knock him unconscious?

The Doctor, in "City of Death"

I suppose the best way to find out where you come from is to find out where you're going, and then work backwards.

The Doctor, in "City of Death"

Well, to be fair I did have a couple of gadgets he probably didn't, like a teaspoon and an open mind.

The Doctor, in "The Creature From the Pit"

Stupid expression, "stands to reason". Why isn't it "lie down to reason"? -- much easier to reason lying down...

The Doctor, in "The Creature From the Pit"

I suppose you could say "the yoke's on him", if you were the sort of person who said that sort of thing, which fortunately I'm not.

The Doctor, in "The Creature From the Pit"

"Oh, you shouldn't be worried; Time Lords have 90 lives."

"How many have you got through?

"About 130."

The Doctor and Romana, in "The Creature From the Pit"

She's tipped the ambassador into a pit and threw astrologers at him.

The Doctor, in "The Creature From the Pit"

"I don't think we should interfere."

"Interfere? Of course we should interfere! Always do what you're best at, that's what I say."

Romana and the Doctor, in "Nightmare of Eden"

"I like doing the impossible."

"If it's possible to get in to the situation, theoretically it should be possible to get out of it."

"Oh, you've spoilt it now."

Romana and the Doctor, in "Nightmare of Eden"

"Me? Well, I told you, I'm from Galactic."

"Galactic went out of business twenty years ago."

"I wondered why I hadn't been paid."

"That's not good enough."

"That's what I thought."

The Doctor and Rigg, in "Nightmare of Eden"

[Professor Stein] was my mentor. We worked on this idea together, before he died, of course. Then we stopped.

Tryst, in "Nightmare of Eden"

"First a collision, then a dead navigator, and now a monster running about my ship. It's totally inexplicable."

"Nothing's inexplicable."

"Then explain it."

"... Inexplicable."

Rigg and the Doctor, in "Nightmare of Eden"

"Yes, but who do you work for?"

"Work for? I don't work for anybody; I'm just having fun."

Rigg and the Doctor, in "Nightmare of Eden"

"Your name and date of birth?"

"I'm called the Doctor; date of birth... difficult to remember, sometime quite soon I think."

Fisk and the Doctor, in "Nightmare of Eden"

"I've never met such idiots as those Customs men."

"Idiots? They're worse than idiots, they're bureaucrats..."

Romana and the Doctor, in "Nightmare of Eden"

"What is it?"

"It's a perfectly ordinary electric dog."

Stott and the Doctor meet K9, in "Nightmare of Eden"

"I shall be charging you with gross neglect of duty. The passengers should be your first concern, yet I find you drunkenly looking on as they are attacked and killed. Well?"

"They're only economy class; what's all the fuss about?"

Fisk and Rigg, in "Nightmare of Eden"

Oh, my fingers! My arms! My legs! My everything! Argh...

The Doctor, in "Nightmare of Eden"

"Romana, you've got two minutes, 58 seconds to rebuild this machine."

"What, this? The CET? Are you joking?"

"Do I look as if I'm joking? Well?"

"I'll need a screwdriver."

The Doctor and Romana, in "Nightmare of Eden"

"I wonder what it would be like to be crushed into a singularity?"

"Don't stand there wondering; do something!"

The Doctor and Romana, in "The Horns of Nimon"

Have you noticed how people's intellectual curiosity declines sharply the moment they start waving guns about?

The Doctor, in "The Horns of Nimon"

"Brilliant! I wish I'd thought of that!"

"Oh, you will, Doctor, you will."

The Doctor and Romana, in "The Horns of Nimon"

You know, K9, sometimes I think I'm wasted, just rushing around the universe saving planets from destruction. With a talent like mine, I might have been a great slow bowler.

The Doctor, in "The Horns of Nimon"

"Sounds like an insecure personality to me."

"He lives in the power complex."

"That fits."

Romana and Seth, in "The Horns of Nimon"

"The great civil war... only the army survived."

"Well, that sounds like a well-organized war."

Seth and Romana, in "The Horns of Nimon"

"You've got the century wrong, you've got the season wrong, and you've got K9's seawater defences wrong!"

"Well, I can't get everything right."

"Just something would be a help."

Romana and the Doctor, in "The Leisure Hive"

One must always accept the unexpected.

The Doctor, in "The Leisure Hive"

"His scarf killed Stimson!"

"Arrest the scarf, then."

The authorities and the Doctor, in "The Leisure Hive"

Evidence? You couldn't hang a hat on that.

The Doctor, in "The Leisure Hive"

Some galactic hobo with ideas above his station... the cosmos is full of them.

The Doctor describes the Black Guardian, in "The Leisure Hive"

First things first, but not necessarily in that order.

The Doctor, in "Meglos"

"A little patience goes a long way."

"Yes. Too much patience goes absolutely nowhere."

Login and the Doctor, in "Full Circle"

"The marsh creatures are mindless brutes... animals!"

"Yes, easy enough to destroy. Have you ever tried creating one?"

The Decider and the Doctor, in "Full Circle"

We're all basically primeval slime with ideas above its station.

The Doctor, in "Full Circle"

The green button, gentlemen!

The Doctor, in "Full Circle"

"They asked me to stay on, you know -- be a Decider."

"You, a Decider?"

"Yes. I decided not to."

The Doctor and Romana, in "Full Circle"

Knowing's easy; everyone does that ad nauseam. I just sort of hope.

The Doctor, in "State of Decay"
