From Big Finish Doctor Who Doom Coalition 3: The Crucible of Souls
Eight: Come on! Come on! River: Something the matter? Eight: I’m trying to put it on manual. All the systems are automated. I don’t feel comfortable flying the TARDIS if I’m not actually…flying it! River: Now you know how your companions feel. Eight: I’m a pilot, not a passenger. River: It does look all terribly state of the art. Far more advanced than yours. Eight: That’s just cosmetic. I’m sure I can just download the upgrades, if I wanted to. River: So why don’t you? Eight: Because I don’t want to. My TARDIS is like a fine wine, a vintage car. She may be old but she’s got character. River: I’ll tell her you said that. Eight: I’m perfectly happy with the standard operating systems. Ugh…there we go. River: I take it that you’re driving now? Eight: Not quite yet but I am now. Oh she’s a feisty one. River: Oh you have no idea around feisty. Maybe if I helped. Eight: I doubt that would do any good. Flying a TARDIS isn’t easy. River: Not when you do it. No. Eight: You can’t just pick it up. River: You were saying? Eight: Beginners luck. River: What can I tell you? I’m very intuitive. I feel may way in, play around, see how the system responds then adjust accordingly. Eight: Oh so you’re good with your hands. River: Spoilers. Eight: Sorry, what did you say? River: Oh don’t worry about it.
