That is DAMN GOOD TELEVISION!

Okay, now, don’t get distracted. Remember: you’re flying a time machine.
Sorry…I think I got distracted.

September 15th, 1967 - “Amok Time” first went on the air.

"I definitely designed it as a love relationship… That was the relationship I tried to draw. I think I also tried to draw a feeling of belief that very few of us are complete unto ourselves. It’s quite a lovely thing… where two halves make a whole."

- Gene Roddenberry

It doesn’t matter if there’s nothing under the bed or in the dark, so long as you know it’s okay to be afraid of it. So, listen. If you listen to nothing else, listen to this. You’re always going to be afraid, even if you learn to hide it. Fear is like a companion. A constant companion, always there. But that’s okay, because fear can bring us together. Fear can bring you home. I’m going to leave you something just so you’ll always remember… fear makes companions of us all.

You know the sound the TARDIS makes? That wheezing, groaning? That sound brings hope where ever it goes. To anyone who hears it, Doctor. Anyone. However lost. Even you.

  • fandom: hey moffat
  • moffat: uh-huh
  • fandom: you know that thing you do sometimes where the doctor meets a companion as a child and leaves a life-long impression on them
  • moffat: uh-huh
  • fandom: that's a teeny bit weird
  • moffat: uh-huh
  • fandom: could you do something different
  • moffat: *writes an episode where the companion meets the doctor as a child and leaves a life-long impression on him*

  • moffat: so what do you think

Twelve’s first words upon awaking in “Listen” were the Fourth Doctor’s first words after regenerating.

Tea leaves collected from Boston harbor the morning after the Boston Tea Party. 
Label reads:
“Tea that was gathered up on the Shore of Dorchester Neck on the morning after the destruction of the three Cargos at Boston December 17, 1773.”

i’m so pleased that this means someone during the event was like “yeah this is probably gonna be historically interesting” and just ran out there with, like, what, a net? some cloth? fishing around in the fucking bay to collect tea to put in a bottle? you go, buddy

Good job, anonymous 18th century person.  Your commitment to historic preservation pleases me.
