“I’ve seen amazing things out there in space, but strange things can happen wherever you are. I have learned that life on Earth can be an adventure too. In all the universe, I never expected to find a family.”

"But my greatest memory of Lis will be her and I, in that box at the end of Death of the Doctor, in a position that was such a close fit! And we laughed so much, we were hysterical with laughter. Both of us running around, looking at each other, saying ‘We’ve got to jump in that box, we are pensioners!’ We were able to enjoy all that and more.” - Katy Manning
Elisabeth Sladen died two years ago on 19 April. She was only 65 years old, a mother, a wife, and we will miss her always.
Now what in the world would make you think that, ever, ever, ever?
We’d been travelling down the Amazon for months, and we reached a village in Cristalino, and it was the only place in thousands of miles that had a telephone, so I called you. I just wanted to say hello. And they told me that you’d left, left UNIT, never came back. So I waited and waited, because you said you’d see me again. You did, I asked you and you said yes. You promised. So I thought, one day, I’d hear that sound, Deep in the jungle, I’d hear that funny wheezing noise, and a big blue box right in the middle of the rainforest. You see, he wouldn’t just leave. Not forever. Not me. I’ve waited my whole silly life.
What a way to begin an acceptance speech. Lupita has made sure that we never forget the sufferings of Patsey and Solomon, and thus the millions of enslaved Africans who were dehumanized in one of the greatest crimes against humanity in the history of the world.
Unspeakable crimes that have gone largely unpunished. How can people scream ‘post-racialism’, ‘non-racialism’ and other ignorant statements when justice, if true justice can ever be attained for such acts, is yet to be achieved?
Didn’t mean to derail from Lupita’s acceptance speech but as important as her win is, so to is the vessel that brought her there - the story of Solomon Northup.
This basically sums them up.
