Nerdy Girl Confession

M is for are you my Mummy?

A to Z Challenge – Doctor Who cross stitch

M is for “are you my Mummy?”


“are you my Mummy?” is from fangirl stitches’ doctor who themed alphabet quotes.


Are you my mummy?

This line is probably one of the most popular lines from “new” Who – which is probably the reason behind its inclusion on this particular alphabet.

It’s first introduced in the episode “The Empty Child” with the ninth Doctor and Rose chasing a metallic object straight into the London Blitz.

As mentioned in a previous letter, we are introduced to the dashing Time Agent, Captain Jack Harkness, when he saves Rose. And the Doctor finds a group of homeless children who are being terrorized by Jamie, an “empty” child wearing a gas mask.


Well, are you?!?

I’ve actually stitched the pixel people version of the empty child – it was on a onesie for her little girl with this line stitched beneath the image.

If you interested in stitching that particular design of the empty child or some of the other villains, monsters, and aliens from Doctor Who, click here.

The line has also been referenced by the tenth and twelfth incarnations of the Doctor. Ten asks the question when given a gas mask to wear, and Twelve asks it quickly while encountering a mummy-like Foretold.

I love when the Doctor makes fun of himself and references previous adventures. Sometimes, I swear the Doctor is his biggest fan – he’s just nerding out about his previous incarnations. He’s just too clever for himself!
