When I was a kid, I had an imaginary friend. The raggedy Doctor. My raggedy Doctor. But he wasn’t imaginary. He was real. I remember you! I remember! I brought the others back, I can bring you home, too. Raggedy man, I remember you, and you are late for my wedding! I found you. I found you in words, like you knew I would. That’s why you told me the story - the brand new, ancient blue box. Oh, clever. Very clever. Something old. Something new. Something borrowed. Something blue. OK, Doctor. Did I surprise you this time? Er, yeah. Completely astonished. Never expected that.
