Blink was the tenth episode in Series 3 of Doctor Who and is undeniably the greatest episode in history and perhaps the greatest work of fiction in mankind. It was penned by Steven Moffhauser and has been cited by historians as the single factor that ended all wars on earth, expunged religion and cured cancer.
Blink was so good that every episode since has had a disclaimer added to the beginning apologizing that it is not Blink. To prevent Moffat from soiling his legacy by writing another episode, his hands were chopped off, his eyes gouged out and he was entombed inside The Great Moffat Mausoleum.
- It’s like in this universe, we process time linearly -- forward. But outside of our space-time, from what would be a fourth-dimensional perspective, time wouldn’t exist. And from that vantage, could we attain it, we’d see… our space-time would look flattened. Like a single sculpture with matter in a super-position of every place it ever occupied, our sentience just cycling through our lives like carts on a track. See, everything outside our dimension, that’s eternity. Eternity looking down on us. Now, to us, it’s a sphere. But to them… it’s a circle.
~ The Doctor's inaugural Timey-Wimey speech.
- After seeing Larry Nightingale and Sally break the shackles of their social oppression and become a couple, it made me realise the error of my ways. It inspired me to do better for my people, that they should be treated as humans, not as cattle.

- "He tricked them, the Doctor tricked them, they're looking at each other, they're never gonna move again" is perhaps the greatest reading of a line I have ever seen, In my decades as an actor I have never been able to top it.
~ Sir Anthony Hopkins.
