“When they made this particular hero, they didn’t give him a gun, they gave him a screwdriver to fix things. They didn’t give him a tank or a warship or an x-wing fighter, they gave him a call box from which you can call for help. And the didn’t give him a superpower or pointy ears or a heat ray, they gave him an extra heart. They gave him two hearts. And that’s an extraordinary thing; there will never come a time when we don’t need a hero like the doctor.”
- Steven Moffat
I really need to prepare some blog entries in advance. But instead I was reading somebody else's blog (Tardis Eruditorum - probably helps if you are a fan) and came across this quote by Steven Moffat.
It is a teensy bit sad to say it, but the story of Doctor Who has inspired me all my life. In the early days it was the description of
him as someone who though often caught up in violent situations, he is a man of peace. He is never cruel or cowardly.
(even though, these days, that isn't always true)
Doctor Who has nothing to say on the subject of my fatness though, so I shall stop now.
