Throughout this week, Hypable is celebrating the sharp dialogue of Doctor Who by compiling a series of Top 10 favourite quotes lists. Our second outing focuses on the Doctor through the show’s “classic-era”!

After being around for nearly 50 years, Doctor Who obviously has a very rich heritage of characters, creatures and costumes – but perhaps the unsung hero of the show’s impact on popular culture is the rich and witty dialogue that has graced our screens since 1963. The variety of settings, and broad range of characters enable the show to deliver everything from stirring battle speeches to hilarious one-liners. Boasting some of the world’s best catchphrases, heartbreaking farewells, and uniquely named planets, Doctor Who has had a surprisingly strong impact on modern literature for something that is primaily seen on “The Idiots’ Lantern.” In fact, the show has even seen the words “TARDIS” and “Dalek” enter the Oxford Dictionary!

With all that in mind, there was far too large a wealth of material for us to whittle down the best quotes of Who to just 10. So instead, Hypable’s Doctor Who writers Laura Byrne Cristiano and Harri Sargeant will be celebrating the quirky, moving and hilarious words of the Doctor and company in a series of four lists. Over the coming days, we’ll select our 10 favourite quotes from the Classic-era Companions, Classic-era Doctor, Revival-era Companions and Revival-era Doctor – and then round the week off with YOUR favourites!

If you have any suggestions, drop them in the comments below or tweet us @WhoHype – you can even send an email to whohype@hypable.com if you have a lot to say! Your submissions can be from any character in the series (although not any spin-offs, they will get their own list in the future!) and can be of any length. Make sure you have your submissions in by Thursday, and check back on Friday to see if your suggestions made the cut!

After sharing our favorite Classic companion quotes, we continue the week with our Top 10 favorite quotes from The Doctor in the Classic era!

The Third Doctor

The Time Warrior, Part 1

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

The Fourth Doctor

Robot, Part 4

“There’s no point in being grown up if you can’t be childish sometimes.”

The Seventh Doctor

Survival, Part 1

“There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, and the sea’s asleep, and the rivers dream; people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there’s danger, somewhere there’s injustice, and somewhere else the tea’s getting cold. Come on, Ace. We’ve got work to do.”

The First Doctor

The Dalek Invasion of Earth, Part 6

“One day, I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs, and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine. Goodbye, my dear.”

The Fifth Doctor

Earthshock, Part 4

“For some people, small, beautiful events are what life is all about!”

The Fourth Doctor

The Face of Evil, Part 4

“You know the very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. They don’t alter their views to fit the facts. They alter the facts to fit their views. Which can be uncomfortable… if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering.”

The Fifth Doctor

The King’s Demons, Part 6

“You may disguise your features but you can never disguise your intent.”

The Fourth Doctor

The Keeper of Traken, Part 1

“I thought you might appreciate it if I gave you the impression I
knew what was happening. We could panic of course, but where would
that get us?”

The Fourth Doctor

The Keeper of Traken, Part 1

“If I knew everything that was going to happen, where would the fun be?”

The Fifth Doctor

The Keeper of Traken, Part 1

Adric: “No, no I’m just saying that a lot of the time you don’t really
make sense.”

Doctor: “Ah! Ah! Oh, you’ve noticed that, have you? Well, anybody can
talk sense. As long as that’s understood, you and I are going to get
on splendidly.”

In interesting but potentially brilliant casting news, comedian Amy Schumer will be taking on the role of Barbie for a live-action film.

In interesting but potentially brilliant casting news, comedian Amy Schumer will be taking on the role of Barbie for a live-action film.

Take a moment to soak in the news. Now revel in the idea. This could be awesome.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amy Schumer is not only leading the project on screen, but she’ll also have an influence on the script.

Last year, Sony had their pick of three complete scripts for a live-action Barbie movie. Of those three, they chose Hilary Winston’s. Now that Schumer is on board, THR says to expect her and her sister, Kim Caramele, to rewrite Winston’s original idea.

The plot, given that Schumer doesn’t change the major details, “begins in a perfect land of Barbies where one woman slowly awakens to the fact that she doesn’t fit it. She is expelled from the idealistic land and journeys to the real world, where she discovers that being unique is an asset.”

The outlet also addresses the fact that Mattel has had to deal with plenty of criticism regarding body image and race when it comes to the Barbie toys. Schumer’s casting is a great way to speak to some of those issues, and will hopefully provide a positive and uplifting message by the movie’s end.

There will be, of course, some hesitation given Schumer’s previous work. One only has to look as far as Trainwreck and Inside Amy Schumer to see her comedy is often brutally honest and raunchy. Barbie would be shocked.

But Schumer is an actress, after all, and a brilliant comedian. For this “contemporary spin on beauty, feminism and identity,” she seems like just the right fit.

What do you think of Amy Schumer as Barbie?

To entertain himself (and his fans!), Chris Pratt has been updating his Instagram with funny photos and captions from the tour.

There’s some real gold in there, but the best part is when he realizes that fans really want to see some pictures of Jennifer Lawrence — who doesn’t have her own social media accounts — and proceeds to very decidedly not include her!

Update: He did it again.
