All I needed to know about the Universe, I learned from Doctor Who

What’s the point in being grown-up if you can’t be childish sometimes?!

You can’t change history – not one line. (The First Law of Time.)

Aim for the eyestalk.

Military intelligence is a contradiction in terms.

Nothing is rubbish if you’ve got an inquiring mind.

Have a jelly baby.

A straight line may be the shortest distance between two points… but it is by no means the most interesting.

Logic merely allows one to be wrong with authority.

Of course we should interfere; always do what you’re best at.

You can always judge a man by the quality of his enemies.

When you make a plan, plan in depth.

Computers are really very sophisticated idiots.

Scientists earn their right to experiment at the cost of total responsibility.

There are no other colours without the blues.

Reverse the polarity of the neutron flow.

Somewhere there’s danger, somewhere there’s injustice, somewhere else the tea’s getting cold.

Happy 49th anniversary, Doctor Who!

By me, apparently around 30 January 1994 (that’s the date on the computer file, anyway).

There's something that doesn't make sense. Let's go and poke it with a stick.

People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey-wimey stuff.
