doctor who only, mostly seasons 5 → 8, "There is one thing you need to know about me - well one thing apart from the blue box and the two hearts - we don't walk away." | | .....

heroes and happy endings are just stories. this is not a fairytale.

"What’s that in the mirror? or the corner of your eye? What’s that footstep following, but never passing by? {…} Perhaps they’re all just waiting, perhaps when we’re all dead, out they’ll come a-slithering from underneath the bed

It doesn’t matter if there’s nothing under the bed or in the dark, so long as you know it’s okay to be afraid of it. So, listen. If you listen to nothing else, listen to this. You’re always going to be afraid, even if you learn to hide it. Fear is like a companion. A constant companion, always there. But that’s okay, because fear can bring us together. Fear can bring you home. I’m going to leave you something just so you’ll always remember… fear makes companions of us all.

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 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.”
Steven Moffat
