->I wanna dedicate this area to some personal friends of mine - [[MadScientist the Sons and Daughters of Ether]]. Oh, sure, some of you probably dismiss them because they seem silly: while most of us stay wrapped in some Gothic pity-party, the Etherites fly around in [[CoolAirship impossible ships]], strap themselves into Victorian [[MagiTek wonder machines]], smoke silly pipes and generally make a mockery of all that is sullen and serious.
->That's why I like them so much.
->There's nothing quite as subversive as the refusal of cynicism. When everyone around you is dressed in black and dripping hostility, what could be more subversive than to dress in bright, bold colours and run headlong with almost suicidally-optimistic abandon? The Ether Folks have this wonderfully skewed vision - one part [[RaygunGothic future]], two parts [[SteamPunk past]] and one part [[CrazyAwesome totally demented]] - that I have no choice but to admire. Anyone who can make a toaster grow wings, fly, and play Beethoven's Fifth is a man or woman worth respecting.

->''"To all the people watching, I can never thank you enough for your kindness to me and Iíll think about it for the rest of my life. All I ask of you is one thing: please donít be cynical. I hate cynicism ó itís my least favorite quality and it doesnít lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. [[EarnYourHappyEnding But if you work really hard and youíre kind, amazing things will happen]]."''
-->-- '''Creator/ConanOBrien''', in his last episode of ''Series/TheTonightShow''

->''"I have previously stated my attraction to the idea of keeping oneís politics childish... no matter how many jaded adults remind you that nobody ever said life was fair. Because, you see, thatís a lie. They did. They did tell us that life was fair. Repeatedly. They still do. Every day. On TV, in films, in books, in newspapersÖ they tell us that life is fair over and over again, in happy ending after happy ending, in fictional moral victory upon fictional moral victory, in reassuring news story after reassuring news story, in editorial after thinkpiece after review. Itís only when we express anger at injustice that we are dishonestly told that justice is an unreasonable expectation."''

->'''Sal:''' See? Just like before, you're programmed to go psycho at any provocation.\\

->''"The Saward era, if only in hindsight, is almost overtly an attempt to figure out what ''Doctor Who'' should be like in the wake of [[UsefulNotes/TheFalklandsWar the Falklands]] and [[UsefulNotes/MargaretThatcher Thatcher]]. It gets it dreadfully wrong much of the time, however. In part this is because it concedes the point and tries to be ''Doctor Who'' [[DarkerAndEdgier in a Thatcherite world]]. Whereas here Bidmead just wonít have it. He starts in a world of [[HobbesWasRight militaristic institutions holding back the tide of chaos]], then has the Doctor just kick the premise to the curb and change the world into one in which good old-fashioned 'tear down the structures of society and leave smart, good people behind to rebuild it' is the order of the universe once again.\\\
Itís a small thing, isolated on the trailing end of [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot an era of unfulfilled potential]]. But itís significant -- a spiritual escape act. Instead of bending towards Thatcherite hell the universe now takes a last minute swerve into rebirth."''
