Doctor Who Wednesdays #47

“Listen, this is just a dream. But very clever people can hear dreams. So please, just listen. I know you’re afraid, but being afraid is all right. Because didn’t anyone ever tell you fear is a super power? Fear can make you faster, and cleverer, and stronger. And one day, you’re going to come back to this barn and on that day you are going to be very afraid indeed. But that’s okay. Because if you’re very wise and very strong, fear doesn’t have to make you cruel, or cowardly, fear can make you kind. It doesn’t matter if there’s nothing under the bed or in the dark, so long as you know it’s okay to b afraid of it. So listen. If you listen to nothing else, listen to this. You’re always going to be afraid, even if you learn to hide it. Fear is like a companion. A constant companion always there. But that’s okay, as fear can bring us together. Fear can bring you home. I’m going to leave you something just so you’ll always remember. Fear makes companions of us all.”

The Doctor: “But a hundred and one places to see, and you haven’t been to any of them, have you? That’s why you keep the book.”

Clara: “I keep the book ’cause I’m still going.”

The Doctor: “But you don’t run out on the people you care about. Wish I was more like that. See, the thing about a time machine is that you can run away all you like and still be back for tea, so what do you say? Anywhere, all of time and space right outside those doors.”

“1941. Right now, not very far from here, the German war machine is rolling up the map of Europe. Country, after country, falling like dominos. Nothing can stop it – nothing. Until one tiny, damp little island says ‘no’. ‘No. Not here.’ A mouse in front of a lion. You’re amazing, the lot of you. I don’t know what you do to Hitler, but you frighten the hell out of me. Go on. Do what you’ve got to do, save the world.”

— Ninth Doctor, The Empty Child
