Quotes from The Three Doctors – Doctor Who season 10
I’m a fan of the BBC series Doctor Who, and The Three Doctors is the first time that three different incarnations of the time-traveling Doctor worked together. And two of “him” don’t quite get along …
Tyler: I can manage now, thank you.
Brigadier: I’m delighted to hear it. Make yourself at home. We’re only supposed to be a top secret security establishment(!) Liberty Hall, Dr. Tyler. Liberty Hall!
Third Doctor: Jo, it’s all quite simple – I am he and he is me!
Jo Grant: And we are all together, coo coo cachoo?
Both Doctors: What?Jo Grant: It’s a song by The Beatles.
Second Doctor: Really? How does it go? [Brings recorder to his lips]
Third Doctor: Oh, please be quiet!
First Doctor: [As he appears on the TARDIS’s television screen] Ah, there you are! I seem to be stuck up here. [He examines the Second and Third Doctors.] So you’re my replacements. [They smile at him.] Humph. A dandy and a clown. [They appear insulted.] Have you done anything?
Second Doctor: Uh, well we’ve assessed the situation-
First Doctor: Just as I thought! [Chuckles] Nothing.
Third Doctor: Well it’s not easy you know.
Second Doctor: It’s not as if we know what that stuff is.
Third Doctor: No.
First Doctor: Then I’ll tell you. It’s a time bridge.
Second Doctor: It’s a what?
Third Doctor: I see!
First Doctor: Now what’s a bridge for, eh?
Second Doctor: Well. Um.
Third Doctor: Crossing?
First Doctor: Right! So now dilly-dallying and cross it.
[The First Doctor then starts to fade away from them]
Second Doctor: No! No wait!
Third Doctor: You faded him again!
Second Doctor: I did not fade him. You saw him!
Third Doctor: Yes, you certainly did.
Jo Grant: I hate to ask, but who was that?
Second and Third Doctor: Me [The Doctors look at each other] Me!
Second Doctor: At the moment, they’re far from being all powerful. That’s why it’s been left up to me and me and me!
Second Doctor: Keep it confused, feed it with useless information. I wonder if I have a television set here somewhere.
Brigadier: I’ve explained all that. You’re his assistant.
Second Doctor: His WHAT??
Second Doctor: But I’ve just set this up! I’ve got to confuse it!
Brigadier: (after seeing the First Doctor on the screen) Who was that?Second Doctor: I’m afraid you wouldn’t believe me if I told you!
Brigadier:Three of them, eh? I didn’t know when I was well off.
