“There are worlds out there where the skies are burning, where the sea’s asleep, and the rivers dream. People made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there’s danger, somewhere there’s injustice…and somewhere else the tea is getting cold. Come on Ace…we’ve got work to do!”—The (7th) Doctor, Survival (Last words spoken on the original series)
“Rose… before I go, I just want to tell you: you were fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. And do you know what?”
I think parting lines from the Doctor are really important. This is my favorite. David Tennant’s “I don’t want to go.” summed up the feelings of people watching, but it was SO. SAD. This line, however, does so well in helping us say goodbye to Christopher Eccleston. It’s such a joyous line, and it warms my heart and at the same time shatters it.
