  • Quotes

    • Joseph Green: Ladies and gentlemen, nations of the world, humankind, the greatest experts in extra-terrestrial events came here tonight. They gathered in the common cause, but the news I bring you now is grave indeed. (cut to Mickey watching the TV broadcast) The experts are dead. Murdered right in front of me by alien hands. Peoples of the earth, heed my words. These visitors do not come in peace.
      Mickey: Listen to this. (holds his phone to the speakers)
      Joseph Green: Our inspectors have searched the sky above our heads and they have found massive weapons of destruction, capable of being deployed within forty-five seconds.
      (cut to the Doctor, Harriet and Rose listening to the broadcast)
      The Doctor: What?
      (cut back to Downing Street)
      Joseph Green: Our technicians can baffle the alien probes, but not for long. We are facing extinction. Unless we strike first. The United Kingdom stands directly beneath the belly of the mothership. I beg of the United Nations, pass an emergency resolution. Give us the access codes. A nuclear strike at the heart of the beast is our only chance of survival. Because, from this moment on… it is my solemn duty to inform you… Planet Earth is at war.
