"Steven Moffat, who is the current man behind Doctor Who…the showrunner, the impressario, the God…has trained squads of Ninja Assassins. Probably there are a couple of people in this audience tonight who are plants.If I actually got to the point of saying ‘OK, I will tell you what you want to know’…something would happen. And then I would crumble. Smoking gently, probably. A mysterious black figure would exit and next be seen in Cardiff, saying ‘Mission accomplished’. Steven Moffat would go ‘Good. And he didn’t say anything?’ And the figure would say ‘No’. I tell you NOTHING."
"You lot, you spend all your time thinking about dying, like you’re gonna get killed by eggs, or beef, or global warming, or asteroids. But you never take time to imagine the impossible. Like maybe you survive. This is the year 5.5/apple/26, five billion years in your future, and this is the day… Hold on… This is the day the sun expands. Welcome to the end of the world."

"I think if they ask me nicely or I can see what they want me to do, I’d consider it. I think the fans have been so good to me, they’d expect me to at least make an appearance."

"There’s no point being grown-up if you can’t be childish sometimes."
"The good things don’t always soften the bad, but vice-versa, the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant."
"A straight line may be the shortest distance between two points, but it is by no means the most interesting."

"Oh, I see you’ve been doing the TARDIS up a bit. Hmm, I don’t like it."
