What if you survive? – Doctor Who – Quotes

DW Eggs beef Survive

One of the things I’ve always liked about Doctor Who, that sets it apart from other SF series, is it’s relentless optimism.  The Doctor isn’t a solder or a member of the military (or a rebellion) like all American SF, including Star Trek, Star Wars, and Firefly, he’s a scientist.  And not an Evil Scientist™ but a scientist who’s filled with curiosity and wonder about the universe. The quote above is from the Ninth Doctor, the shell-shocked Doctor, who as just survived the Time War, yet he can still point out the impossible to Rose – that the human race, despite all the nay-sayers to the contrary, survives.
