The Doctors[edit]

  • I'm told that I'm addressin' the Daleks, is that right? From what I hear, you're outcasts too.
    [The Doctor: Solomon, don't--]
    Doctor, this is my township, you will respect my authority. Just let me try... Daleks... ain't we the same? Underneath, ain't we all kin? 'Cause, see, I've just discovered, this past day, God's universe is a thousand times the size I thought it was. And that scares me - oh yeah, terrifies me, right down to the bone. But it's got to give me hope! Hope that maybe, together, we can make a better tomorrow. So I beg you now - if you have any compassion in your hearts, then you'll meet with us and stop this fight!... Well? What do you say?

    • Who: Lady Sylvia Thaw
    • Source: Doctor Who ('The Lazarus Experiment', 2007)
    • Note: Line said while watching the rejuvenated Professor Lazarus start to spasm and mutate. He proceeds to drain her of her life energy, which he needs to stabilize.
  • I will feed soon.
    [The Doctor: I'm not gonna let that happen.]
    You've not been able to stop me so far...
    • Who: Richard Lazarus
    • Source: Doctor Who ('The Lazarus Experiment', 2007)

    • Who: The Master
    • Source: Doctor Who ('Utopia', 2007) and ('Last of the Time Lords', 2007)
    • Note: The first quote is stated when the Master, having been fatally wounded, 'regenerates' into another form, thus effectively 'killing' this version of the character. The second quote is uttered when the Master refuses to regenerate after being shot and then abstaining from regenerating. He is later resurrected, and eventually vanishes while attacking Time Lord President Rassilon.

    • Who: The Air Hostess
    • Source: Doctor Who ('Midnight', 2008)
    • Note: As Biff and Professor Hobbes are trying to throw the Doctor out (thinking the Midnight Entity has possessed him), Sky Silvestry (Possessed by the midnight entity) makes the fatal mistake of saying the Doctor's French phrases, causing the Air Hostess to realize that Sky Silvestry is the real body for the Midnight Entity. She proceeds to open the door that will throw her out of the Crusader Vehicle, where the Xtonic Sunlight of the planet Midnight will destroy her. To make sure she doesn't escape, the Hostess holds Sky near the door and counts to six before they are both cast out of the vehicle and vaporized.

  • One will still die!
    • Who: Dalek Caan
    • Source: Doctor Who ('Journey's End')

    I'm going home, mate!
    • Who: Bus Driver (Keith Perry)

The Doctor tries to stop him, saying "The bus came through, but we can't." However, it's too late; the Driver tries to run through. As he does, his body catches fire and when he reaches Earth, his body is nothing more than a burning skeleton.

Bless the path that takes you to safety." The Angel snaps his neck moments later.
  • Sir, the Angels need you to sacrifice yourself now.

    • Source: Doctor Who ('The Angels Take Manhattan', 2012)
    • Note: Final words said on-screen by character in a cemetary, immediately before being sent back in time by a Weeping Angel. This creates a time loop that will inevitably lead to him being buried in that same grave. The second phrase does in fact belong to a scene that was never shot, but BBC released it soon after the episode as a sketch scene, with Arthur Darvill voiceover.

The line is tearfully addressed to the Doctor, using the nickname she gave him when she was a little girl. The Doctor later reads a farewell letter from her, asking that he go back and comfort that little girl by telling her of the adventures she will one day have with him. Character later appears in the Eleventh Doctor's final moments, as he hallucinates her presence just before his death.

    • Note: The same final words are said by the same character who appears to be reincarnated throughout time and space; first when killed in the Dalek Asylum, second when falling to her death in Victorian London, and third when entering the Doctor's timestream to save him from the Great Intelligence. It is this act that causes her to appear in so many different places, each time to die to save the Doctor's life.
