United We Stand
Storytime with Uncle Terry
Many of you probably recognize the quote on this shirt from the 50th anniversary episode, "The Day of the Doctor." But we wanted to share the quote that inspired it from Uncle Terry.
Much has changed about the Doctor over the years but much has remained the same. Despite the superficial differences in appearance, at heart, or rather at hearts (the Doctor has two) his character is remarkably consistent.
He is still impulsive, idealistic, ready to risk his life for a worthy cause. He still hates tyranny and oppression and anything that is anti-life. He never gives in and he never gives up, however overwhelming the odds against him.
The Doctor believes in good and fights evil. Though often caught up in violent situations, he is a man of peace. He is never cruel or cowardly.
In fact, to put it simply, the Doctor is a hero. These days there aren't so many of them around.
- Terrance Dicks, longtime Doctor Who writer and script editor
