A to Z Challenge – Doctor Who cross stitch

U is for “i’ve never met anyone Unimportant

“i’ve never met anyone Unimportant” is from fangirl stitches’ doctor who themed alphabet quotes.

This isn’t an exact quote, but it is a nice little paraphrase to fit the alphabet. The actual quote from the 2010 Christmas special is “… I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t important.” With a little creative licensing, fangirl stitches made it work in favor of the alphabet.

Mind if I drop in

This quote is from one of my favorite Christmas specials, “A Christmas Carol.”

It’s the first Christmas special with Eleven, and it spins a classic holiday story.

I love this classic Christmas story – countless adaptations through the years that I have watched and loved.

To me, this story is about redemption. From Scrooge to this adaptation’s Kazran Sardick, this story is about change and betterment even after long years of cruelty and harshness. It’s a story about the hope of transformation.

Nice shark

Sardick is changed by the Doctor, who travels through his past to prevent him from becoming the lonely old miser that he currently is.

Along this journey, the Doctor and Sardick meet Abigail, a young woman frozen as collateral for her family’s loan from Kazran’s father.

Because of this meeting, the Doctor’s help is not the only factor in Kazran’s ever-changing history. Abigail becomes a large part of Kazran’s life, but she herself is living on borrowed time.

You shall be visited by a ginger ghost

I love the little throwbacks to the original story including the obvious heartless selfish man who is seemingly beyond redemption.

Amy Pond is the specter of Christmas present, begging Sardick to help the crashing space liner where she and her husband Rory Williams are honeymooning.

Not only is this episode one of my favorite Christmas specials, it has beautifully melodies sung throughout the episode by Abigail (played by Katherine Jenkins).

“A Christmas Carol” is another great standalone episode – blending Doctor Who with classic Dickens and a bit of music. Remember, the (ninth) Doctor has actually encountered Charles Dickens, the author of the tale.

Oh, and let’s not forget the sky fish!
