"Let me tell you about scared. Your heart is beating so hard, I can feel it through your hands. There's so much blood and oxygen pumping through your brain, it's like rocket fuel. Right now, you could run faster and you can fight harder, you could jump higher than ever in your life. And you're so alert, it's like you can slow down time. What's wrong with scared? Scared is a super power. It's your super power. There is danger is this room, and guess what? It's you! You feel it?"

This is a quote from a Doctor Who episode and I thought it was really nice perspective on fear.

Even if it was Jodie Whittaker who said the line she didn't bloody write it.
The post is about putting fear in to perspective and not about reviewing a Doctor Who episode.

Great script writing for which ever doctor it was intended for.

I know she didn't 'bloody' write it!
Its got to one of the older doctor who script writer's,
As that far too intelligent for this new doctor who,
I mean c'mon,
Why the need for THREE assistants???
Why be shouty all the time,
Why use people who have wrote for emmerdale and coronation street?
It's a science fiction escapism entertainment series!!

Good perspective TulipIcecream. If we see it as a helpful thing not trying to cause a problem. It really is handy to have this when its needed. I lean to that thinking most of time.

I think it is utter shite and has been since its inception. The cast has been full of wooden actors apart from Tennant who seemed to break the mould.

Very occasionally a good line is written like the ones above.
