Tim Shaw: Who are you?

13th Doctor: Oh, yes, I'm glad you asked that again. Bit of adrenaline, dash of outrage, and a hint of panic knitted my brain back together. I know exactly who I am. I'm the Doctor. Sorting out fair play throughout the universe. Now, please, get off this planet while you still have a choice.

Grace: Is it wrong to be enjoying this?

Graham O'Brien: Yes!


(Doctor barely makes a long jump)

13th Doctor: These legs definitely used to be longer.


13th Doctor (to Tim Shaw): If you've finished, let's be really clear. You're not taking any human from Earth tonight. Leave now, or we're going to stop you.


Tim Shaw: You're interfering in things you don't understand.

13th Doctor: Yeah, well, we all need a hobby.

13th Doctor: Sonic Screwdriver. Well, I say Screwdriver, but it's a bit more multi-purpose than that. Scanner, diagnostics, tin opener. More of a Sonic Swiss Army knife. Only without the knife. Only idiots carry knives.

Graham O'Brien: You don't look like an alien.

13th Doctor: You should have seen me a few hours back. My whole body changed. Every cell in my body burning. Some of them are still at it now, reordering, regenerating.

Grace: Sounds painful, love.

13th Doctor: You have no idea. There's this moment where you're sure you're about to die and then you're born. It's terrifying. Right now I'm a stranger to myself. There's echoes of who I was and a sort of call towards who I am. And I have to hold my nerve and trust all these new instincts. Shape myself towards them. I'll be fine. In the end. Hopefully. Well, I have to be, because you guys need help and if there's one thing I'm certain of, when people need help, I never refuse. Right? This is going to be fun.


13th Doctor: I don't know. If I could analyse that... Course, what I really need is my... I could build one! I'm good at building things. Probably.


Ryan Sinclair: When I went to get my bike, there was this line in the air and then it moved and there were shapes.

13th Doctor: And?

Ryan Sinclair: And I touched one.

Grace: Ryan.

Ryan Sinclair: You all would have done the same.

Graham O'Brien: I wouldn't.

13th Doctor: I would have.


13th Doctor: Why are you calling me "madam"?

Yasmin Khan: Because you're a woman.

13th Doctor: Am I? Does it suit me?

Yasmin Khan: What?

13th Doctor: Oh, yeah! I remember. Sorry, half an hour ago I was a white-haired Scotsman.
