Miniscopes were a barbaric invention—zoos of intelligent creatures, miniaturized and kept in time loops for the pleasure of other, more ‘developed’ races. The Doctor petitioned for their abolition and our people—for once in their long lives—acted.” Braxiatel shrugged. “The Doctor always was one for causing trouble.”

“When they made this particular hero, they didn’t give him a gun. They gave him a screwdriver to fix things. They didn’t give him a tank or a warship or an x-wing fighter—they gave him a box from which you can call for help.

There will never come a time when we don’t need a hero like the Doctor.”
― Steven Moffat

To me, that’s a real parent, and that is an extremely beautiful thing to get to, and I think it’s very real… But the most important thing about ‘Safe’ was that relationship.
