Doctor Who has finally crash-landed back onto our screens for its eleventh series, marking a brand new era for the show, complete with a new Doctor, new companions, new sonic – new everything! If one viewing of Sunday night’s thrilling opener ‘The Woman Who Fell to Earth‘ wasn’t enough for you, you can relive it now with our favourite quotes from the episode.
“You pay for her cracked window You pay for her scratched door and we all agree that parking around here is a nightmare but grown-ups should really need to call the police to sort it out for them.” – Yasmin Khan
“Right now, I’m a stranger to myself. There’s echoes of who I was, and a sort of… call towards who I am, and I have to hold my nerve and trust all these new instincts, shape myself towards them. I’ll be fine. In the end. Hopefully.” – The Doctor
The Doctor: Why are you calling me madam?
Yasmin Khan: Because… you’re a woman?
The Doctor: Am I? Does it suit me?
Yasmin Khan What?
The Doctor: Oh yeah, I remember – sorry, half an hour ago I was a white-haired Scotsman!
“Sonic screwdriver. Well, I say screwdriver, but it’s a bit more multipurpose than that. Scanner, diagnostics, tin opener! More of a… sonic swiss army knife, but without the knife – only idiots carry knives.” – The Doctor
“Swiss army sonic. Now with added Sheffield steel.” – The Doctor
“Bit of adrenaline, dash of outrage and a hint of panic knitted my brain back together. I know exactly who I am. I’m the Doctor. Sorting out fair play throughout the universe. Now, please – get off this planet, while you still have a choice.” – The Doctor
“We’re all capable of the most incredible change. We can evolve, whilst still staying true to who we are. We can honour who we’ve been, and choose who we want to be next – now’s your chance. How about it?” – The Doctor
“So today I want to talk about the greatest woman I ever met. Smart, funny, caring. Proper special. My nan. Because, er… she died. First my mum six years ago and now my nan. It’s like the best people get taken first. I had a lot to learn from her. And I was looking forward to that. She died like she lived. Trying to help other people. I love you Nan. And tomorrow, I’m going out there for you.” – Ryan Sinclair
“Lots of you knew Grace longer than me. So I can’t stand here and pretend to know everything about her. I wasn’t her first husband, but she said I would do for a second attempt. I can only tell you about the Grace I met, when I thought I didn’t have much time left. The Grace that showed me life had more to offer. And I know that if she was here now she’d tell us not to be so sad. You see, I can hear her saying to me, ‘Graham, we had three glorious years. What are you complaining about?’ I’m complaining because I wanted more. You see, Grace was a better person than I could ever be. And I should’ve gone, and Grace should still be here.” – Graham O’Brien
Doctor Who returns next Sunday 14th October at 6:55pm on BBC One with ‘The Ghost Monument‘, written by Chris Chibnall and directed by Mark Tonderai.
