    • QUOTES (2)

      • Cameca: We are a doomed people, my dear. There is no turning back for us.
        The Doctor: You're a very fine woman, Cameca, and will always be very, very dear to me.

      • Barbara: We failed.
        The Doctor: Yes, we did. We had to.
        Barbara: Then what is the point of travelling through time and space? We can't change anything… Nothing! Tlotoxl had to win.
        The Doctor: Yes.
        Barbara: And the one man I had respect for, I deceived. Poor Autloc. I gave him false hope, and in the end, he lost his faith.
        The Doctor: He found another faith, the better. But that's the good you've done. You failed to save a civilisation, but at least you helped one man.
