I still belive that this is the best Doctor Who episode, and in honour of the amazing-ness of it, I have decided to put the transcript of the impossible video. Sorry about the length; but still, enjoy! :]
Sally Sparrow- The doctor.
Larry Nightingale- Who’s the doctor?
Sally Sparrow- [points at TV screen] He’s the doctor.
The Doctor- Yep, that’s me.
S- ‘Kay that was scary.
L- No, it sounds like he’s replying but he always says that.
D- Yes I do.
D- Yep, and this!
S- He can hear us! Oh my god, you can really hear us!
L- Of course he can’t hear us! Look. I got a transcript, see? Everything he says. Yep that’s me, yes I do, yep and this, next…
L & D [together]- …are you gonna read out the whole thing?
S- Who are you?
D- I’m a time traveller, or I was, I’m stuck in 1969.
Martha Jones- [bursts on screen] We’re stuck! All of space and time he promised me, now I got a job in a shop, I have to support him!
M- [realises she is on camara] Sorry.
S- I’ve seen this bit before.
D- Quite possibly.
S- 1969, that’s where you’re talking from?
D- ‘Fraid so.
S- But you’re replying to me! You can’t know what I’m gonna say 40 years before I say it!
D- [indignantly] 38!
L- I’m getting this down, I’m writing in your bits.
S- How! How is this possible? Tell me.
L- Not so fast!
D- People don’t understand time. It’s not what you think it is.
S- Then what is it?
S- Tell me.
D- Very complicated.
S- I’m clever and I’m listening and don’t patronize me because people have died and I’m not happy, tell me!
D- People assume that time is a straight progression of cause to effect but actually from a non-linear non-subjected viewpoint it’s more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey whimey …stuff.
S- Yeah, I’ve seen this bit before. You said that sentence got away from you.
D- It got away from me, yeah.
S- Next you’re gonna say “Well I can hear you.”
D- Well I can hear you.
S- This is impossible!
L- No, it’s brilliant!
D- Well not hear you exactly but I know everything you’re gonna say.
L- Always gave me the shivers, that bit.
S- How can you know what I’m gonna say?
D- Look to your left.
L- What does he mean by “look to your left”? I’ve written tons about that on the forum. I think it’s a political statement!
S- He means you! What are you doing?
L- I’m writing in your bits, that way I gotta a complete transcript! What till this hits the net! This will explode the Egg Forums!
D- I’ve got a copy of the finished transcript, it’s on my autocue.
S- How can you have a copy of the finished transcript? It’s still being written!
D- I told you, I’m a time traveller! I got it in the future.
S- Okay. Let me get my head around this. You’re reading aloud from a transcript of a conversion you’re still having?
D- [dismissively] Wibbly wobbly, timey whimey.
S- Never mind that, you can do short hand?
D- What matters is we can communicate, we’ve got big problems now. They have taken the blue box haven’t they? The angels have the phone box?
L- “The angels have the phone box”, that’s my favourite. I’ve got that on a t-shirt.
S- What do you mean angels? You mean those statues things?
D- Creature from another world.
S- But they’re just statues!
D- Only when you see them.
S- What does that mean?
D- The lonely assassins, they used to be called. No one quite knows where they came from but they’re as old as the universe or very nearly and they have survived this long because they have the most perfect defence system ever evolved. They are quantum locked. They don’t exist when they’re being observed. The moment they are seen by any other living creature they freeze into rock. No choice, it’s a fact of their biology. In the sight of any living thing they literally turn to stone, and you can’t kill a stone. ‘Course, a stone can’t kill you either but then you turn your head away, then you blink, and oh yes it can.
S- Don’t take your eyes off that.
D- That’s why they cover their eyes. They’re not weeping; they can’t risk looking at each other. They’re greatest asset is they’re greatest curse. They can never be seen. Loneliest creatures in the universe. And I’m sorry, I’m very, very sorry, but it’s up to you now.
S- What am I supposed to do?
D- The blue box, that’s my time machine. There’s a world of time energy in there they could feast on forever but the damage they could do could switch off the sun. You have got to send it back to me.
S- How? …HOW?!
D- And that’s it I’m afraid, there’s no more from you on the transcript, that’s the last I’ve got. I don’t know what stopped you talking but I can guess. They’re coming. The angels are coming for you but listen; your life could depend on this. Don’t blink, don’t even blink! Blink and you’re dead. They’re fast, faster than you can believe. Don’t turn your back, don’t look away, and don’t blink! Good Luck.
