We thought we’d had the ultimate Doctor Dwarf moment. We thought that never again could a moment where New Who was so obviously ripping off our favourite sitcom match up.
Dear reader, we were wrong.
THE DOCTOR : Yep, that’s me.
THE DOCTOR : Yes, I do.
RIMMER : How did I do what?
THE DOCTOR : Are you gonna read out the whole thing?
RIMMER: Doctor, don’t be a gimboid.
THE DOCTOR : I’m a time traveller. Or, I was: I’m stuck. In 1969.
RIMMER: I’ve just been in the library, thinking. And I’ve decided… Shut up! As I was saying before I was so rudely interrupted, I’ve decided, when you go into stasis, I want to stay behind. I want to be left on.
THE DOCTOR : People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually – from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it’s more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey… stuff.
RIMMER : What things?
THE DOCTOR : It… got away from me, yeah.
RIMMER : I said WHAT?
THE DOCTOR : Well, I CAN hear you.
RIMMER: YOU are space crazy.
THE DOCTOR : Well, not HEAR you exactly, but I know everything you’re gonna say.
RIMMER : Well it probably IS deja vu, it sounds like it.
