Happy 10th birthday to the show that changed my life forever!
“When they made this particular hero, they didn’t give him a gun, they gave him a screwdriver to fix things. They didn’t gave him a tank or a warship or an x-wing fighter, they gave him a call box from which you can call for help. And they didn’t give him a superpower or pointy ears or a heat ray, they gave him an extra heart. They gave him two hearts. And that’s an extraordinary thing; there will never come a time when we don’t need a hero like the Doctor.” (Steven Moffat)
“Getting to tell the stories that you get to tell and travel in the Tardis and friendship, and just so many magical things. There’s nothing as whimsical as this show, I don’t think. It’s a dream. It kind of feels a bit like an adventure.” (Jenna Coleman)
“The marvelous thing about Doctor Who is that it tells stories that no one else can tell.” (Russell T.Davies)
"The world would be a poorer place without Doctor Who” (Steven Spielberg)
“I think it’s glorious to be nervous. Being nervous is great! How often do we get nervous on a daily basis? Being slightly nervous means you care, and you’re alive, and you’re taking some kind of risk. Hooray for being nervous! A friend told me to substitute the word ‘excitement’ for ‘nervous’. That way you acknowledge the physical feelings without putting a negative spin on things.”
Ah, that’s the box. The blue box. It’s always there. Like a magic carpet. This funny little box that transports me to far away places. Like a doorway? Mmm. I sometimes think how magical life would be if stories like this were true.
“If we are to have a feminist YA, we must write about all the girls, not just the ones that are “likeable”. Because “likeable” is just another way of prescribing a right way to be a girl. Because girls and women are complicated and deep and layered and messy and infinitely fascinating. Because if male characters are allowed to be those things and still be worthy of reading, so should female characters. Because I don’t want to read just one kind of woman. Because I don’t want to be one kind of woman. Because if we do not give our female characters the right to be all kinds of women, how do we expect our readers to know they have that right, too?”

(My personal pics, please do not remove my watermarks or repost, thank you. It was dark (no flash allowed), smoky and freezing. They started about 5 pm on Tuesday and finished on Wednesday morning about 6 am.)
Kudos to the entire POI Cast & Crew for their awesomeness!!
