There aren’t enough sets about this segment so here’s another one
This is the best birthday present I have ever had.
This is a doctor who is at odds with his appearance more than any other. He seems to be a buffoon, it appears that he’s out of his depth, when he saves the day it’s possible that it could all just have been a lucky accident. But there are moments, flashes, when we glimpse the strategic genius beneath. If the adventure was a game of chess he’d win without really seeming to be involved at all. Only after laying down his king would his opponent begin to realise that maybe he’d been outplayed right from the very first move - Justin Richards [Dreams of Empire]

Susan: “I know how much Lucie meant to you.”
Doctor: “How much she means to me - time is relative, isn’t it? I am Time Lord, what does time mean to me? It’s not fixed. And our people made up all those rules and regulations, for what? How much chaos would it bring to go back and save Lucie Miller? At the point of impact, just snatch her, into the TARDIS. What would that do except save one of the noblest inhabitants of the universe?”
