A to Z Challenge – Doctor Who cross stitch

X is for “i think you call me seXy


“i think you call me seXy” is from fangirl stitches’ doctor who themed alphabet quotes.

fangirl stitches made a bit of a stretch for this letter, but let’s be honest folks that the letter x would be damn near impossible for several fandoms and their quotes.


That’s ood

This line is from the amazing episode “The Doctor’s Wife” in which we see the Tardis in human form.

In the beginning of the episode, the Doctor receives a message from an old Time Lord friend, which brings Rory, Amy, and him to another universe where they meet an alien who eats Tardises.

I love this episode because it is so revealing when it comes to the Doctor and his relationship with the Tardis. In his mind, he stole her – his blue box. But she always believed that she stole him to see all of time and space.


I know you, Doctor

This episode also has one of my all-time favorite quotes from Doctor Who, which is “No, but I always took you where you needed to go.”

During a discussion between the Doctor and the Tardis, the topic of reliability comes up after a bit of snarking at each other while rebuilding a Tardis console.

He claims she’s not very reliable, which she replies back with a snarking “And you have!” This discussion ends with those words – “where you needed to go” – and it gets me every time. It’s true – the Tardis is an equal partner in saving and protecting, caring for others across time and space.



I also love that she references all of his companions as strays.

This episode is definitely up there when it comes to my favorites.

It’s another standalone that has no references to some overhanging plot for the series, but I wouldn’t recommend it as a starting point to begin at. I think future Whovians would need a bit more Tardis behavior from previous episodes to fully appreciate this monumental episode.
