the doctor on interior design
Hypercubes were a communication technology used by the Time Lords which resembled cubes; they were used by thinking or speaking to them and then sent through time and space to Gallifrey or to someone they trusted enough to rescue them. They could be used by humans as well as Time Lords.
“It’s a very special sort of box. It now contains all the information about what’s been going on here, and an appeal for help.” — Second Doctor, The War Games
“Time Lord emergency messaging system. In an emergency, we’d wrap up our thoughts in psychic containers and send them through time and space.” — Eleventh Doctor, The Doctor’s Wife

Day 25- Favourite catchphrase
Well this was tricky.
Last night I had a conversation about naming our next dog Pond so I could say “Come along, Pond!”
When I was watching the Ninth Doctor lots of things were “Fantastic!”
I told my kids to “Allons-y!”
And whenever something slightly saucy happens I turn to my husband and ask him “The mind races, does it not?”
But I love “Hello, Sweetie!” Because, just as it is for the Doctor, it’s an invitation for an amazing adventure that’s going to be *so much fun*. So that’s why it’s my favourite catch-phrase.
Hades why are you pointing at a big rock
that doesn’t look like the Empire State Building to me
