"When they made this particular hero, they didn’t give him a gun, they gave him a screwdriver to fix things. They didn’t give him a tank or a warship or an x-wing fighter, they gave him a call box from which you can call for help. And they didn’t give him a superpower or pointy ears or a heat ray, they gave him an extra heart. They gave him two hearts. And that’s an extraordinary thing; there will never come a time when we don’t need a hero like the doctor."
"Rory Pond is everything I could never be - brave enough to show when he’s scared, man enough to take his wife’s name, and so steadfastly in love that he’ll wait 2000 years and not complain once. Everyone needs a Rory in their life."
