Quote of the Week: There's Always That Guy

To anyone unfamiliar with the setup of the show, this next bit is going to be a little bit baffling. There's this guy, and he's an alien. But he's a very British sort of alien. He is, in fact, more British than the British people he takes with him on his travels, and you know this because he most often dresses like an Edwardian dandy with a serious frock coat addiction. He's the archetypal British eccentric, a boffin, an inventor, and because he is a figure of authority and one of the good guys (mostly), his name is the Doctor.
