A to Z Challenge – Doctor Who cross stitch

L is for “we’re in a Library! books! best weapons in the world”

“we’re in a Library! books! best weapons in the world” is from fangirl stitches’ doctor who themed alphabet quotes.

This quote is from the episode “Tooth and Claw” from the second series. To me, this quote is similar to the words “knowledge is power.”

Werewolves of London

This episode includes a “werewolf,” which is by far my favorite supernatural creature from lore.

Full moon and everything, the “werewolf” is actually an alien species that survived by passing its lycanthropic form from human to human.

This episode also has the best running gag. Rose and the Doctor encounter Queen Victoria, and Rose tries throughout the episode to trick the Queen into uttering the famous phrase “We are not amused.”

Books = Weapons

This episode also mentions the Torchwood Institute, which is the title of the spin-off series with Captain Jack Harkness.

Torchwood is referenced from series 1, episode 11 to the end of series 2.

The events of this episode actually occur in the Torchwood Estate, which was designed as a trap for the “werewolf.” Queen Victoria creates the Torchwood Institute in that very estate to help defend Britain from further alien attacks (including the Doctor).

You gonna take these, Doctor?

The line about books being weapons resonates with me – books contain knowledge, untold worlds, and endless possibilities.

Weapons against adversaries, and weapons against mental atrophy.

Books are powerful tools, and this quote is one of my favorite letters in this stitching alphabet.
