Doctor Who Timeless Quote #28 – The Ood’s Prophecy


Elder of the Ood: Returning… Returning, returning. It is slowly returning, through the dark and the fire and the blood. Always returning. Returning to this world. It is returning, and he is returning, and they are returning. But too late. Too late. Far too late, he has come.

He comes to us, every night. I think all the peoples of the universe dream of him now.

The Doctor: That man is dead.

Elder of the Ood: There is yet more. Join us. Events are taking shape – so many years ago, and yet changing the now. There is a man, so scared.

The Doctor: Wilfred – is he alright? What about Donna? Is she safe?

Elder of the Ood: You should not have delayed, for the lines of convergence are being drawn across the Earth. Even now, the king is in his counting house.

The Doctor: I don’t know who they are.

Elder of the Ood: And there is another – the most lonely of all, lost and forgotten.

The Doctor: The Master’s wife.

Ood Sigma: We see so much, yet understand little. The woman in the cage – who is she?

The Doctor: She was… it-it wasn’t her fault. She was… The Master, he’s a Time Lord like me. I can show you. The Master took the name of Saxon. He married a human, a woman called Lucy, and he corrupted her. She stood at his side while he conquered the Earth. I reversed everything he’d done so it had never even happened, but Lucy Saxon remembered. I held him in my arms. I burned his body. The Master is dead!

Elder of the Ood: And yet, you did not see…

The Doctor: What’s that? Part of him survived… I have to go!

Elder of the Ood: But something more is happening, Doctor. The Master is part of a greater design, because a shadow is falling over creation. Something vast is stirring in the dark! The Ood have gained this power to see through time, because time is bleeding. Shapes of things once lost are moving through the veil, and these events from years ago threaten to destroy this future, and the present, and the past!

The Doctor: What do you mean!?

Elder of the Ood: This is what we have seen, Doctor. The darkness heralds only one thing: the End of Time itself!
