  • Quotes

    • The Doctor: A friend of mine, Andy Warhol was his name, said, "They always say that time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself." Wonderful man. He wanted to paint all nine of me.

    • Alison [ examining the Doctor ]: I can't find a pulse.
      The Doctor [ wakening ]: And with so many to choose from. That's two-one to me in the game of, "I thought you were dead, Doctor."

    • The Doctor: Why do you only invade a tiny bit of Lancashire?
      Prime: Our ambition is greater than that.
      The Doctor: What do you mean? Nottinghamshire?

    • The Doctor: It's been a long time since anyone screamed at me, and then I think they were only waiting for Elvis to come on. My poetry went down tremendously.

    • Joe: Do you know what it's like to be a doctor, and stand by and watch these things and not be able to do anything?
      The Doctor [ sighing ]: So many answers to that… No, no interest in giving them.

    • The Doctor: I know about monsters, I'm the Doctor.

  • Notes

    • Novelisation: Doctor Who - Scream of the Shalka by Paul Cornell (ISBN 0 563 48619 8) first published by BBC Books in 2004.

    • David Tennant was not originally cast in the production but happened to be recording a radio play next door and was able to get small part after meeting with the director. Tennant would go on to portray the tenth Doctor in the new Doctor Who.

    • The Master has been resurrected as an android and is now part of the TARDIS.

    • The Doctor implies, but does not explicitly state, that this is his ninth incarnation. At one point he states that a painter wished to paint all nine of him.

    • This was a fully-animated webcast originally made available through the BBC's Doctor Who Homepage. Each episode was approximately 10 minutes long and was first made available at noon (G.M.T.) on successive Thursdays from 13 November 2003.
