Z is for “prisoner Zero

“prisoner Zero” is from fangirl stitches’ doctor who themed alphabet quotes.

This quote is from the first episode of the fifth series “The Eleventh Hour,” which tells the first full story of the eleventh Doctor and debuts the new companion Amy Pond.

You can’t see me, na-na, na-na, boo-boo

That particular episode also introduces the words “silence will fall,” which becomes a critical plot thread throughout the lifetime of the eleventh incarnation.

The Doctor meets a young girl Amelia Pond, after crashing the Tardis in her garden, who has a crack in her bedroom wall that becomes a recurring image throughout the fifth series.

The crack is emitting a message “Prisoner Zero has escaped.” However, the Doctor is interrupted in learning all he can about this unknown prisoner who used the crack to escape and he promises Amelia to return in five minutes. And of course, the Tardis doesn’t comply with this quick five-minute trip.

The Doctor actually returns in the morning twelve years later.

You’re Amelia Pond!?!

This episode was a great introduction to both the eleventh Doctor and his new companion Amy Pond.

Because of his disappearance for twelve years, Amy is no longer a little girl who will simply follow his every lead and the Doctor is still new to this regeneration.

But he’s the Doctor and he will defend this planet from here until the very end.

Look me in the eye and say that to my face

However, the Doctor saves the day only to disappear.

He returns two years after the events of that day dealing with Prisoner Zero.

Fourteen years since he promised to take little Amelia Pond on a trip.

Amy Pond becomes his new companion and known to Whovians as “the girl who waited,” but she leaves behind a very conspicuous white wedding gown hanging in her closet as the Tardis disappears from her garden.

All of time and space… let’s do it!

She turns out to be a little bit of a runaway bride, running from her life choices and life style to travel time and space with her imaginary best friend.

I’ve always loved that about Amy Pond – she’s the first face the Doctor sees with his new regeneration and she wants to run just as much as him.

She wants to see the stars and the past and the future, and her “raggedy man” is going to give her all those adventures and more.
