“The whole key to life is discovering things for yourself. What you do with that discovery is what lies on the other side of that door.”
David Whitaker, Doctor Who and the Daleks

“Strange isn't it, people spend their time making nice things and other people come along and brake them.”
David Whitaker, Doctor Who: The Enemy of the World

David Whitaker, Doctor Who and the Daleks
