“Clara sometimes asks me if I dream. “Of course I dream,” I tell her, “Everybody dreams”. “But what do you dream about?” she’ll ask. “The same thing everybody dreams about,” I tell her, “I dream about where I’m going.” She always laughs at that. “But you’re not going anywhere, you’re just wandering about”. That’s not true. Not anymore. I have a new destination. My journey is the same as yours, the same as anyone’s. It’s taken me so many years, so many lifetimes, but, at last, I know where I’m going, where I’ve always been going: Home, the long way ‘round.”

“In all my travelling throughout the universe, I have battled against evil, against power-mad conspirators. I should have stayed here.

“Oh yes, I can when I want to. And that’s the point, really. I have to really want to, to bring them back in front of my eyes. The rest of the time they… they sleep in my mind and I forget. And so will you. Oh yes, you will. You’ll find there’s so much else to think about. To remember. Our lives are different to anybody else’s. That’s the exciting thing, that nobody in the universe can do what we’re doing.”

Doctor Who: Season 5.
