Eleventh Doctor Quotes

Here are a few of my favourite Eleventh Doctor quotes. Feel free to add more!

The Doctor: Oo! Now what's this, then? I love this. Big flashy lighty thing. That's what brought me here. Big flashy lighty things have got my name written all over them. Not actually. Give me time and a crayon. Now! This big flashy lighty thing is connected to the spiral on your dome, yeah? And it controls the sky. Well it technically controls the clouds. Which technically aren't clouds at all. Well they're clouds of tiny particles of ice. Ice clouds. Love that. Who's she?

Sardick: Nobody important:

The Doctor: "Nobody important". Blimey, that's amazing. D'you know, in 900 years of time and space I've never met anyone who wasn't important before. -- "A Christmas Carol"

Pond: Have you got a plan yet?

The Doctor: Yes I do.

Pond: Are you lying?

The Doctor: Yes I am.

Rory: Was he lying?

Pond: No, no.

The Doctor: Okay. The good news. I've tracked the machine that unlocks the cloud belt. I can use it to clear your flight corridor and you can land easily.

Pond: Well hey, hey, that's great news.

The Doctor: But I can't control the machine.

Pond: Less great.

The Doctor: But I met a man who can.

Pond: Ah, well, there you go.

The Doctor: And he hates me.

Pond: Were you being extra charming and clever?

The Doctor: Yeah! How did you know?

Pond: Lucky guess. -- "A Christmas Carol"

The Doctor: Can't use the TARDIS 'cause it can't lock on. So that ship needs to land. But it can't land unless a very bad man decides to turn nice just in time for Christmas Day.

Pond: Doctor, I can't hear you. What is that? Is that singing?

The Doctor: A Christmas Carol.

Pond: A what?

The Doctor: A Christmas Carol.

Pond: A what?!

The Doctor: A Christmas Carol. (realizing) Kazran Sardick. Merry Christmas, Kazran Sardick. -- "A Christmas Carol"

The Doctor (Ganger): Rory and Amy they may not trust both of us.

The Doctor (Original): You're thinking what I'm thinking--

The Doctor (Ganger): Inevitably.

The Doctor (Original): See, I'm glad we're on the same--

The Doctor (Ganger): Wavelength.See. Great minds!

The Doctor (Original): Exactly. So. what's the plan?

The Doctor (Ganger): Save them all, humans and gangers.

The Doctor (Original): Between us, that sounds wonderful.

The Doctor (Ganger): Is that what you were thinking?

The Doctor (Original): Yes. It's just so inspiring to hear me say it.

The Doctor (Ganger): I know! -- The Almost People

The Doctor: Legs. I've got legs. Good. Arms, hands. Oo, fingers, lots of fingers. Ears, yes. Eyes, two. Nose, I've had worse. Chin, blimey. Hair -- I'm a girl! No! No! I'm not a girl! And still not ginger! And there's something else, something important -- I'm, I'm, I'm -- [loud explosion] ha! Crashing! Ha, ha! Whoo-hoo-hoo! Geronimo! -- The End of Time

The Doctor: Can I have an apple? All I can think about. Apples. I love apples. Maybe I'm having a craving! That's new. I never had cravings before. Look at that.

Young Pond (Amelia): Are you okay?

The Doctor: Just had a fall. All the way down there into library. Hell of a climb back up.

Amelia: You're soaking wet.

The Doctor: I was in the swimming pool.

Amelia: You said you were in the library.

The Doctor: So's the swimming pool.

Amelia: Are you a policeman?

The Doctor: Why? Did you call a policeman?

Amelia: Did you come about the crack in my wall?

The Doctor: What cra-- (he falls)

Amelia: Are you all right Mister?

The Doctor: I'm fine! I'm okay! This is all perfectly normal.

Amelia: Who are you?

The Doctor: (looks at his hands which are still glowing with regenerative energy) I don't know yet. I'm still cooking. Does it scare you?

Amelia: It just looks a bit weird.

The Doctor: No, no. The crack in your wall. Does it scare you?

Amelia: Yes.

The Doctor: Well then, no time to lose. I'm the Doctor. Do everything I tell you, don't ask stupid questions, and don't wander off. (turns around and smacks into a tree)

Amelia: You alright?

The Doctor: Early days. Steering's a bit off. -- "The Eleventh Hour"

Young Pond (Amelia): If you're a doctor, why does your box say police? (hands him an apple)

The Doctor: (takes a bite and promptly spits it out) That's discusting, what is that?

Amelia: An apple.

The Doctor: Apple's rubbish. I hate apples.

Amelia: You said you liked them.

The Doctor: No, no. Yogurt's my favourite. Give me yogurt. (tries it and spits it out) I hate yogurt. It's stuff with bits in it.

Amelia: You said it was your favourite.

The Doctor: New mouth, new rules! It's like eating after you've cleaned your teeth. Everything tastes -- Ahh! (has a spasm)

Amelia: What is it? What's wrong with you?

The Doctor: Wrong with me? It's not my fault. Why couldn't you give me some decent food? You're Scottish, fry something. (Amelia fries some bacon) Ah, bacon! (tries some and takes it out of his mouth) Bacon. That's bacon. Are you trying to poison me? (Amelia prepares some beans) Ah, you see? Beans. (tries some and spits them out in the sink) Beans are evil. Bad, bad beans. (Amelia gives him a plate of buttered bread) Bread and butter, now you're talking. (we cut to him throwing it, plate and all, out the door) And stay out!

Amelia: Got some carrots.

The Doctor: Carrots. Are you insane? Hang on. I know what I need. I need, I need, I fingers...and custard. -- "The Eleventh Hour"

What quotes can you come up with (best Doctor ever) 18:07, June 15, 2011 (UTC)

The Doctor: WHO DA MAN?!

(Awkward silence)

The Doctor: Well, fine, I'm never saying that again.


The Doctor: Now, football's the one with the sticks, isn't it?


The Doctor: She kissed me.

Rory: Did you kiss her back?

The Doctor: No, I kissed her mouth.


The Doctor: Oh, look. It's the oval office. I was looking for the... uh... oblong room.

Amy: Cool aliens?

The Doctor: Well, what would you call me?

Amy: An Alien.

The Doctor: Oy.


The Doctor: And, Doctor Song. You've got that face on again.

River: What face?

The Doctor: The "He's so hot when he's clever" face.

River: This is my normal face.

The Doctor: Yes, it is.

River: Oh, shut up.

The Doctor: Not a chance.


River: What in the name of sanity have you got on your head?

The Doctor: It's a fez. I wear a fez now. Fezzes are cool!


The Doctor: Can you hold, I have to eat a biscuit.


The Doctor: Amy, I am 907 years old. Do you know what that means?

Amy: It's been a while?


The Doctor: I don't know, but I can't feel my feet, and... other parts.

The Doctor: No. That's recent.


The Doctor: They call me The Doctor. I don't know why, but I call me The Doctor too.

- The guy who spammed No its a question - 04:25, June 17, 2011 (UTC)


Madame Kovarian: "the Anger of a Good Man is no problem: they have too many rules"

The Doctor: "Good Men don't need rules. Today is not a Good Day to find out why I have so many."


The Doctor: Ooh, kissing and crying. I'll, I'll, I'll,... I'll be back in a bit.

Rory: Oy, you! Get in here, now!

Rory: My Daughter, what do you think?

The Doctor: Hello. Hello,... Baby

Amy: Uh, Melody

The Doctor: Melody! Hello, Melody Pond.

Rory: Melody Williams

Amy: Is a geography teacher, Melody Pond is a superhero.

The Doctor:(creepy sniff) Well I suppose she really does smell nice. Never really sniffed her. Maybe I should give it go. Amelia Pond, come here. (creepier sniff + sigh)


River: This is cold, even by your standards, this is cold.

The Doctor: Or hello, as they used to say. Popped out to get my special straw, it adds more fizz.

Amy; You're okay, how can you be okay?

The Doctor: Hey, of course I'm okay, I'm always okay, I'm the king of okay. Ooh, that's a rubbish title, forget that title. RORY, the Roman, that's a good title. Hello Rory. And doctor River Song, you bad, bad girl, what trouble have you got for me this time? (SLAP) Okay, I'm assuming, that's for something I haven't done yet.

River: Yes, it is.

The Doctor: Good, looking forward to it.


Amy: So you think this is good yeah? They were leaving.

The Doctor: Leaving is good, never coming back is better. Come oooon then,... the Doctor will see you nooow.

Atraxi: You are not from this world.

The Doctor: No but I've put a lot of work into it. (looks at tie) I dunno, what do you think?

Atraxi: Is this world important?

The Doctor: Important? What does that mean, important? Six billion people live here, is that important? Now here's a better question, is this world a threat to the Atraxi? Well come on you're monitoring the whole planet, is this world a threat?

Atraxi: No.

The Doctor: Are the people of this world guilty of any crime by the laws of the Atraxi?

Atraxi: No

The Doctor: Okay! One more, just one. Is this world protected? You're not the first lot to have come here, there have been so many,... and what you've got to ask is. What happened to them?

The Doctor: Hello, I'm the Doctor. Basically,... Run.


The Doctor: Sorry, sorry. Dropped it.

Helloooo, Stonehenge! Who takes the pandorica, takes the universe. But, bad news everyone... Cause guess who? Ha.

Except you lot, you're all whizzing about, it's very distracting, so could you all just stay still, because I AM TALKING!

Now the question of the hour is, who's got the Pandorica? Answer: I do. Next question, who is coming to take it from me? Come oooon. Look at me. No plan, no back up, no weapons worth a damn. Oh and something else, I don't have anything to lose.

So, if you're sitting up there in you're silly little spaceships, with your silly little guns. And you've got any plans on taking the Pandorica tonight. Just remember who's standing in your way. Remember every black day that I ever stopped you and then, AND THEN do the smart thing, let somebody else try first!


River Song: What in the name of sanity have you got on your head?

The Doctor: It's a fez. I wear a fez now, fezzes are cool. -- "The Big Bang"

The Doctor: No time to lose. I'll take it. Ah! You want to see my credentials. (shows him the psychic paper) There. National Insurance number. (flips it behind his back) NHS number. (flips it again) References.

Craig: Is that a reference from the Archbishop of Canterbury?

The Doctor: I'm his special favourite. Sh. -- "The Lodger" 13:07, June 18, 2011 (UTC)


"Christmas eve....on a rooftop......saw a whole brain went 'What The Hell'"!

Canton Everett Delaware III: "Sir this man just walked in here with a blue box and three of his friends, and *THAT'S* the man he walked by. I think one of them is worth listening to" (ok not the Doctor but cool anyway)

"I need a S W A T team ready to moblize, streel level maps covering the whole of Florida, a pot of coffee, 12 Jammie Dodgers and a fez"!

The house: "Fear me, I've killed hundreds of Time Lords.

The Doctor: "Fear me, I've killed all of them"

Amy: "It was my skirt, my husband and your glass floor"

Startrekandmore 04:32, July 3, 2011 (UTC)

(About the Doctor, from The Doctor's Wife)

Rory: "He'll be all right. He's a Time Lord."

Amy: "That's just what they're called; it doesn't mean he actually knows what he's doing." 14:06, January 31, 2012 (UTC)

"Finally, a lie too big"

The Eleventh Hour: 'Amy Pond, there's something you better understand about me, cause it's important, and one day, your life may depend on it. I am definitely a madman with a box.'

The Doctor's Wife: 'I'm a madman with a box, without a box!'

And then, in the God Complex, it really does save Amy's life: I'm not a hero. I really am just a madman in a box.

From The Doctor's Wife again (although Idris gets most of the best lines): 'You're a bitey, mad lady. The TARDIS is up and downy stuff in a big blue box.'

Plus, this conversation:

  • Doctor: 'And she's a woman. She's a woman and she's the TARDIS.'
  • Amy: 'Did you wish really hard?'
  • Doctor: 'Shut up! Not like that!'
  • Idris: 'Hello, I'm Sexy.'
  • Rory: Oh!'
  • Doctor: 'Still shut up!'

Back to series 5, Meanwhile in the TARDIS: 'Gandalf. A space Gandalf. The little green one in Star Wars.' And 'You make all of spacetime your backyard, and what do you have? A backyard.' And of course 'No, no no no, I mean voice-locked. I would have to say, Show me all visual records of previous TARDIS inhabitants"'.

And finally, in Good Night, the line that sums up Moffat's entire take on Doctor Who: The thing is, Amy, everyone's memory is a mess. Life is a mess. Everyone's got memories of a holiday they've never been on or a party they never went to, or met someone for the first time and felt like they've known them all their lives. Time is being rewritten all around us, every day. People think their memories are bad, but their memories are fine. The past is really like that. (Then Amy says 'That's ridiculous', and he replies, 'Ah, you're starting to get it'.)

here are my top 2

1.It's a fezz / bow tie fezzes / bow ties are cool

2. I was brought here by a flashy thing

Here are the best in my book:

  • Geronimo.
  • Bow ties are cool.
  • Fezzes are cool.
  • And stay out. (hilarious when he threw the plate out and shouted at it like it was a pest)
  • Alright. It's a jammy dodger. But I was promised tea.
  • Tell me the whole plan. One day, that'll work. (hilarious attempt to find out the plan.... and hilarious reaction to the Vampires hissing).

Okay he are some of my Favourites:

The Doctor: I am being extremely clever up here and there's no one to stand around looking impressed! What's the point in having you all?

The Doctor: Oh. Hello. Bad moment. Oh look, this is the Oval Office. I was looking for the... oblong room. I'll just be off then, shall I.

Nixon: Who the are they and... what is that box?

The Doctor: It's a police box. Can't you read? I'm your new undercover agent. On loan from Scotland Yard. Code named The Doctor. These are my top operatives. The Legs, The Nose and Mrs. Robinson.

River: I hate you.

The Doctor: No you don't.

The Doctor: I'm going to need a SWAT team ready to mobilize, street-level maps covering all of Florida, a pot of coffee, twelve jammie dodgers and a fez.

Delaware: Get him his maps.

Nixon: Your five minutes are up.

The Doctor: Yeah, and where's my fez?

And thats all for now.EEEEEEEE i love doctor who

"Amelia!" (getting overprotective of Amy when she approaches a Dalek)

Patience is for wimps! (The Power of Three)

The patience quote was funny. And the Amelia one showed his overprotectiveness of Amy... sounding like a parent with a child.

Here are others of my favourite quotes:

  • I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. (talking to a sad Amy... repeating the Tenth Doctor's sympathetic catchphrase)
  • What do they teach children in schools these days?
  • Dinosaurs on a spaceship. (his excited reaction to the Ankylosaurs on the Silurian-Ark.
  • I thought you Daleks ran out of ways of making me sick.
  • Today, I honour victums first; his, the Master's, the Dalek's.... all the people who died because of my mercy!
  • But that's how it all started. Jex turned someone into a weapon. Now that same story's gonna make you a killer too. Don't you see? Violence doesn't end violence. It extends it. And I don't think you want to do this. I don't think you want to become that man. (his moral lecture on the price of revenge and war)
  • NO! (his reaction to Amy being taken by the Weeping Angel) 18:03, October 1, 2012 (UTC)

Yowzah! -- Reaction to River Song, even when merely described in print. (The Angels Take Manhattan) -- 18:19, October 4, 2012 (UTC)

Not by Eleven but to him:

"Bringing home strays." -- The TARDIS, referring to the Doctor's companions. (The Doctor's Wife)
