->''"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."''

->''"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]].

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."''
