“Salter gave the Doctor an intense look. 'And what are you - some kind of crisis management expert?'
The Doctor scratched the back of his neck. 'No, well, yes, maybe I am. Crisis management, yes I suppose that's what I do, although I'm not sure about the management bit, sounds a bit desk-bound - meetings and agendas and all that, and no offence to you, Mr Golightly, but that's not really me.'
Salter stared at the man in amazement. How could anyone talk that fast for so long and say nothing?”
Colin Brake, Doctor Who: Judgement of the Judoon
