a pile. A pile of little arms. And I remember, I-I-I cried, I wept like some grandmother. I wanted to tear my teeth out, I didn't know what I wanted to do.\\\

The fifth Doctor was, however, explicitly characterised as a liberal, a philosophy which Saward had difficulty in coming to grips with: frequently, Sawards' scripts have the Doctor [[TechnicalPacifist dithering and then engaging in a violent act]], strongly suggesting Saward's conflict between his desire to write a story featuring a Darwinist action-hero and his knowledge that the character should be portrayed as anything but... The Doctor at no point counters this argument; he could say that it is people like Davros who perpetuate the cycle of death and destruction, but instead, [[GoodIsImpotent he simply freezes]]."''
