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.”

— Clara, Listen

    For some reason I always thought that monologue had a deeper meaning than what the words actually say. It’s sort of always felt to me like almost a homage to all of Doctor Who. That’s just my opinion.
