On November 23, 1963 a science fiction show about a madman in a box premiered its first episode, “An Unearthly Child,” in the United Kingdom. Since then generations of sci-fi fans have come to recognize the symbol of a blue police call box for intelligence, kindness, and adventure! This year marks the 58th Anniversary of Dr. Who.
The TARDIS (or Time and Relative Dimension in Space) serves to help a Time Lord known as The Doctor travel throughout time and space, protecting life, nurturing hope, and forging friendships on planets throughout the universe. On November 23, we recognize TARDIS Day!
Memorable Doctor Who Quotes
“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.”
– The First Doctor, played by William Hartnell
“If there was a bomb under this floor timed to go off in five minutes, would you ask my permission before you ripped up the floorboards?”
– The Second Doctor, played by Patrick Troughton
“Courage isn’t just a matter of not being frightened, you know. It’s being afraid and doing what you have to do anyway.”
– The Third Doctor, played by Jon Pertwee
“Homo sapiens. What an inventive, invincible species. It’s only a few million years since they crawled up out of the mud and learned to walk. Puny, defenseless bipeds. They’ve survived flood, famine and plague. They’ve survived cosmic wars and holocausts. And now, here they are, out among the stars, waiting to begin a new life. Ready to out sit eternity. They’re indomitable. Indomitable.”
– The Fourth Doctor, played by Tom Baker
“Well, there’s a probability of anything. Statistically speaking, if you gave typewriters to a tree full of monkeys, they’d eventually produce the works of William Shakespeare.”
– The Fifth Doctor, played by Peter Davison
“Planets come and go. Stars perish. Matter disperses, coalesces, forms into other patterns, other worlds. Nothing can be eternal.” – The Sixth Doctor, played by Colin Baker
“Think about me when you’re living your life one day after another, all in a neat pattern. Think about the homeless traveler and his old police box, with his days like crazy paving.”
– The Seventh Doctor, played by Sylvester McCoy
“You feel that pounding in your heart? That tightness in the pit of your stomach? The blood rushing to your head, do you know what that is? That’s adventure. The thrill and the fear, and the joy of stepping into the unknown. That’s why we’re all here, and that’s why we’re alive!”
– The Eighth Doctor, played by Paul McGann
“I’ve had many faces, many lives. But I don’t admit to all of them. There’s one life I’ve tried very hard to forget. He was the Doctor who fought in the Time War and that was the day he did it. The day I did it. The day he killed them all. The last day of the Time War. The war to end all wars. Between my people and the Daleks. And in that battle there was a man with more blood on his hands than any other. A man who would commit a crime that would silence the universe. And that man was me.”
– The War Doctor, played by John Hurt
“Nice to meet you Rose. Now run for your life!”
– The Ninth Doctor, as played by Christopher Eccleston
“You want weapons? We’re in a library. Books are the best weapon in the world. This room’s the greatest arsenal we could have. Arm yourself!”
– The Tenth Doctor, played by David Tennant
“The way I see it, life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don’t always spoil the good things or make them unimportant.”
– The Eleventh Doctor, Played by Matt Smith
“I do what I do because it’s right! Because it’s decent! And above all, it’s kind! It’s just that. Just kind. If I run away today, good people will die. If I stand and fight, some of them might live — maybe not many, maybe not for long. Hey, maybe there’s no point in any of this at all, but it’s the best I can do. So I’m going to do it and I will stand here doing it until it kills me … what would you die for? Who I am is where I stand. Where I stand is where I fall. Stand with me. These people are terrified. Maybe we can help a little. Why not, just at the end, just be kind?”
– The Twelfth Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi
“We’re capable of the most incredible change. We can evolve while still staying true to who we are. We can honor who we’ve been and choose who we want to be next. Now’s your chance.”
– The Thirteenth Doctor, played by Jodi Whittaker
