Trivia, Quotes, Notes and Allusions
Clara: Doctor? Doctor?
The First Doctor: Yes, what is it? What do you want?
Clara: Sorry, but you're about to make a very big mistake. I don't know where I am. It's like I'm breaking into a million pieces and there's only one thing I remember. I have to save the Doctor. He's always looks different. I always know it's him. Sometimes I think I'm everywhere at once, running to save him. Just to save him. Doctor. But he never hears me. Almost never. I blew into this world on a leaf. I'm still blowing. I don't think I'll ever land. I'm Clara Oswald, the Impossible Girl. I was born to save the Doctor.
Clarence: Do you hear the Whisper Men? The Whisper Men are near. If you hear the Whisper Men, then turn away your ear. Do not hear the Whisper Men, whatever else you do. For once you've heard the Whisper Men, they'll stop... and look at you.
Vastra: Strax! Good of you to join us.
Strax: It'd better be important. I was in the middle of destroying some very pleasant primitives.
Clara: Clara Oswald.
River: Professor River Song. The Doctor might have mentioned me?
Clara: Oh, yeah. Yeah, of course he has. Professor Song. Sorry, it's just that I never realized you were a woman.
Strax: Well, neither did I.
Clara: So, how do we get down there? Jump?
The Doctor: Don't be silly. We fall.
Whisper Men: This man must fall as all man must, the fate of all is always dust.
Simeon: Welcome to the final resting place of the cruel tyrant. Of the slaughterer of the ten billion, and the vessel of the final darkness. Welcome... to the tomb of the Doctor.
Vastra: The Doctor has been many things, but never blood-soaked.
Dr. Simeon: Tell that to the leader of the Sycorax. Or Solomon the traitor. Or the Cybermen, or the Daleks. The Doctor lives his life in darker hues, day after day, and he will have other names before the end. The Storm. The Beast. The Valeyard.
