Doctor Who night

Another one without all that much that's actually quotable.

"Look at you. Five years later and you haven't changed a bit. Apart from age... and size..."

"I'm getting on a bit, you see. Don't let the cool gear fool you."

"... Bow tie wearing idiot!" ... Yes, someone has got the Doctor all figured out...

... Good grief, Betelgeuse has just arrived. "Dream Lord" my fat hairy, that's got to be Michael Keaton in disguise...

... Doctor, if someone is about to have a baby, you do not position your hands just under them, as if you're about to catch a cricket ball...

"I was promised new worlds. I get duff central heating and a kitcheny wind up thing."

... I was actually surprised that this ridiculous hat didn't get knocked off Betelgeuse's head...

... Well that serves you right for clobbering a little old lady...

"Oh, a poncho. The biggest crime against fashion since lederhosen."

Now, instead of Betelgeuse, this idiot wants to be the Stig. Except he still needs to shut up and put on his helmet. Both of which would be an improvement.

"I'm liking this... Is it something I said? ... What was it? So I can use it for birthdays and emergencies?"

Overall there wasn't really much to say about this episode. Some good dialogue, but more complex than the quick and snappy stuff that is easy to scribble down while watching. And the ending... Well, I suppose they had to do it that way in order for it not to be too derivative of "Q" from "Star Trek", but it's skirting dangerously close to a cop-out ending.
