Do try and keep out of my way in the Future

  • 26. November 2015

Do try and keep out of my way in future and in past, there’s a good fellow. The time continuum should be big enough for the both of us. As we learn about each other, so we learn about ourselves. It is! It’s the city of New New York!

Strictly speaking, it’s the fifteenth New York since the original, so that makes it New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New New York. Yes, that’s right, you’re going. You’ve been gone for ages. You’re already gone. You’re still here. You’ve just arrived. I haven’t even met you yet. It all depends on who you are and how you look at it. Strange business, time.

Right! So stop dilly-dallying, and cross it! That could blow a hole in the space-time continuum, the size of—actually, the exact size of Belgium. That’s a bit undramatic, isn’t it? ‘Belgium’? No idea. Just do what I do: hold tight and pretend it’s a plan. I don’t like it. One day, I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine. Goodbye Susan. Goodbye my dear.

Well, you’re very similar heights. Maybe you should wear labels. Now would you stand aside before I shoot myself? I don’t need a sword. Because I’m the Doctor … and this is my spoon. I don’t want to go. Every great decision creates ripples. Like a huge boulder dropping in a lake. The ripples merge and rebound off the banks in unforseeable ways. The heavier the decision, the larger the waves, the more uncertain the consequences. You see when I started, all those years ago, I was just running. I called myself the Doctor but it was just a name. Then I went to Skaro. And I met you lot. And I understood who I was.

Let’s go in! Have faith, Brigadier. Have I ever led you astray? Small though it is, the human brain can be quite effective when working at full efficiency, not unlike myself! It seems you have a very large rat Brigadier—maybe you should employ the services of a very large cat? Geronimo! I’ve made many mistakes… and it’s about time that I did something about that. Exotic alien swords are easy to come by, Aces are rare. Old ladies die all the time. It’s practically in the job description.

People who talk about infallibility are usually on very shaky ground. A tear, Sarah Jane? No, don’t cry. While there’s life, there’s… Shall we ask for a better quality of door so we can escape? Think about me when you’re living your life one day after another, all in a neat pattern. Think about the homeless traveller and his old police box, with his days like crazy paving. Bow ties are cool. Timing malfunction. The Master! He’s out there. I’ve got to stop… him… The past is another country. 1987’s just the Isle of Wight.
