The Quotable Doctor Who - Volume One

Sample Chapter Headings and Quotations

from The Quotable Doctor Who - Volume One ...


"Doctor Who needs no introduction ... indeed, right from the very first episode it has relied upon that elusive quality to convince its audiences that even the most far-fetched adventures are as acceptably believable as any
down-to-earth example of cinema verite."

Jeremy Bentham, Doctor Who: The Early Years (1986)

On the global appeal of the show - "Because it's the best idea ever invented in the history of the world!"
Russell T. Davies on BBC Wales Today (2004)

"I love this show as much as ever. It has not diminished as I feared it would. I can still
catch a Jon Pertwee repeat on UK Gold and be happy as a Zygon."

Russell T. Davies (2005)

"The new Doctor Who turned out to be a surprise. Nobody expected it to be this lousy ... The special effects were neat, but couldn’t disguise the black hole where the show’s brain should be."
Garry Bushell in The People (2005)

"The dialogue was rarely vital to the old Doctor Who: the single word to resonate in it was 'exterminate' "
Mark Lawson in The Guardian (2005)

"It’s basically a teatime kids show - a bit like My Parents Are Aliens, but not half as funny."
Ian Hyland in The Sunday Mirror (2005)

"I hadn't understood the beauty of sci-fi before Dr Who came into my world."
Billie Piper, Growing Pains (2006)

"The cliché about Doctor Who - that it had us 'hiding behind the sofa' - is more telling in its tone than its questionable factuality. It connotes nostalgia, and a pleasurable mixture of fright and fascination - but above all it connotes domesticity. It united fear and soft furnishings in the British mind."
Sam Leith in The Daily Telegraph (2008)

"Doctor Who has to be proper Doctor Who scary. There is nothing scarier than watching Doctor Who as a child. Scarier than Tomb of the Cybermen or Terror of the Autons? Are you mad? No, those are truly terrifying."
Steven Moffat (2010)

"Doctor Who has never pretended to be hard science-fiction. At best, Doctor Who
is a fairytale, with fairytale logic, about this wonderful man in this big blue box, who at the beginning of every story lands somewhere where there’s a problem."

Neil Gaiman (2010)

"Despite the new Doctor Who being shot in Wales, partially financed by Canada, and licensed in Australia, New Zealand, the US, and much the rest of the world, Doctor Who is simply British."
Shawn Shimpach, Television in Transition (2010)

"Whenever I catch an episode I find myself thinking, 'Hmm. Matt Smith’s amusing. The girl looks good. But the plots, the villains, the deus ex machina endings … I’m sure I would find these scary and suspenseful and unpredictable if I’d just grown out of rusks' ... Sadly I don’t suppose I’ll ever get to find out what so many adults see in Doctor Who unless I suffer a serious brain injury."
Michael Deacon in The Daily Telegraph (2010)
