“I didn’t appear to be hurrying there, did I? But that deceptively easy gait of mine covers the ground at an amazing speed.” Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor in The Trial of the Time Lord
It is unconscionable that the council of Time Lords
would subject me to such indignities. I am the Doctor,
the Lord, High President of Gallifray.
At least I was until they kicked me out of office.
I don’t see why they ever tried to force the job
on me in the first place. Ever since I left Gallifrey,
I have been their errand boy and punching bag.
My Second Incarnation was also put on trial. My Third was exiled.
The Fourth was sent on a mission to destroy the Daleks
before they were even born. Is it any wonder that my last Incarnation
ran away from them again? The Time Lords never cared about me.
Now here I am again, on trial-
for things I haven’t even done yet;
but based on what I’ve seen,
I’ll certainly do them when I get the chance.
I don’t understand why I can’t just live my life.
Sure I interfere with the course of history,
but that doesn’t make me wrong. I am the Doctor,
and I just happen to turn up where and when I am needed.
It’s not my fault I’m so good at what I do.
