These are the criteria I'll be using to determine whether an episode of Doctor Who passes the Bechdel Test or not:

·         The conversation needs to be more than two lines long. Which I know sounds silly - it means that a conversation that went "Move!" "Okay" wouldn't pass, but a conversation that went "Move!" "No" "Fine" would - but I guess the cutoff point has to come somewhere.

·         Both women either have to be named (whether in the episode or the credits: female characters only mentioned in the credits are highlighted in orange) or have a very good reason for not being named. So, for example, The Hostess from Midnight would count, but the German woman from Journey's End wouldn't.

·         This is a time-travel show, so after some consideration, I decided that a woman speaking to her past or future self (or to a clone, as in a couple of cases) is counted as a pass.

·         This is also a science-fiction show, but I decided that female-voiced robots and holograms don't count. Sorry! Malevolent Entities that present as female (ie. The Wire), however, do. And malevolent entities that present as male count as males.

Your input on this is VERY much appreciated. If you think that any one of these conversation shouldn’t pass, based on my own criteria, let me know. All the raw transcripts come from this site (edited a little to include stage directions and the like). You can see the statistics I have so far here. Eventually, they’ll be made into an infographic.

EPISODE 1, SERIES 1: ROSE
Written by Russell T Davies

JACKIE: It's Debbie on the end. She knows a man on the Mirror. Five hundred quid for an interview.
ROSE: Oh that's brilliant! Give it here.
(Rose takes the phone from Jackie and ends the call.)
JACKIE: Well, you've got to find some way of making money. Your job's kaput and I'm not bailing you out.
(The telephone rings again. Jackie answers it.)
JACKIE: Bev! She's alive. I've told her, sue for compensation. She was within seconds of death.

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Jackie Tyler, Jackie's friends on the phone
Talking about: Rose getting compensation for her 'near-death experience' (which, to be fair to Jackie, it sort of was.)


JACKIE: There's Finch's. You could try them. They've always got jobs.
ROSE: Oh, great. The butchers.
JACKIE: Well, it might do you good. That shop was giving you airs and graces. And I'm not joking about compensation. You've had genuine shock and trauma. Arianna got two thousand quid off the council just because the old man behind the desk said she looked Greek! I know she is Greek, but that's not the point. It was a valid claim.
(Something rattles at the door.)
ROSE: Mum, you're such a liar. I told you to nail that cat flap down. We're going to get strays.
JACKIE: I did it weeks back!

More than one woman: Jackie Tyler, Rose Tyler
Talking about: Rose's job hunt, her 'airs and graces', and compensation.


JACKIE: Oh, there you are. I was just going to phone. You can get compensation. I said so. I've got this document thing off the police. Don't thank me.
ROSE: Where are you, mum?
JACKIE: I'm in town.
ROSE: No, go home! Just go home right now!
JACKIE: Darling, you're breaking up. Listen, I'm just going to do a bit of late night shopping. I'll see you later. Ta-ra!
ROSE: Mum! Mum!

More than one woman: Jackie Tyler, Rose Tyler
Talking about: Rose tries to warn her mother to go home; Jackie is more interested in shopping and Rose's compensation.



 

EPISODE 2, SERIES 1: THE END OF THE WORLD
Written by Russell T Davies


ROSE: Sorry. Am I allowed to be in here?
RAFFALO: You have to give us permission to talk.
ROSE: Er, you have permission.
RAFFALO: Thank you. And, no, you're not in the way. Guests are allowed anywhere.
ROSE: Okay.
(Raffalo goes to a wall panel and unlocks it.)
ROSE: What's your name?
RAFFALO: Raffalo.
ROSE: Raffalo?
RAFFALO: Yes, miss. I won't be long, I've just got to carry out some maintenance. There's a tiny little glitch in the Face of Boe's suite. There must be something blocking the system. He's not getting any hot water.
ROSE: So, you're a plumber?
RAFFALO: That's right, miss.
ROSE: They still have plumbers?
RAFFALO: I hope so, else I'm out of a job.
ROSE: Where are you from?
RAFFALO: Crespallion.
ROSE: That's a planet, is it?
RAFFALO: No. Crespallion's part of the Jaggit Brocade, affiliated to the Scarlet Junction, Convex fifty six. And where are you from, miss? If you don't mind me asking.
ROSE: No, not at all.

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Raffalo
Talking about: Rose is attempting to get to know the place she's in, by talking to the locals. Raffalo the plumber just seems happy to have someone to talk to.
Notes: Rose then goes on to talk about the Doctor, however, the first part of this conversation doesn't mention him. This is just Rose being friendly and nice to somebody.

 

JACKIE: Hello?
ROSE: Mum?
JACKIE: Oh, what is it?
(Jackie is emptying the washing machine.)
JACKIE: What's wrong? What have I done now? Oh, this red top's falling to bits. You should get your money back. Go on. There must be something, you never phone in the middle of the day. What's so funny?
ROSE: Nothing. You all right, though?
JACKIE: Yeah. Why wouldn't I be?
ROSE: What day is it?
JACKIE: Wednesday, all day. You got a hangover? Oh, I tell you what. Put a quid in that Lottery syndicate. I'll pay you back later.
ROSE: Yeah, er, I was just calling 'cos I might be late home.
JACKIE: Is there something wrong?
ROSE: No. I'm fine. Top of the world.
(Jackie rings off.)

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Jackie Tyler
Talking about: Rose, having called her mother from the end of the world, makes up an excuse to talk to her.

 

CASSANDRA: Soon, the sun will blossom into a red giant, and my home will die. That's where I used to live, when I was a little boy, down there. Mummy and Daddy had a little house built into the side of the Los Angeles Crevice. I'd have such fun.
ROSE: What happened to everyone else? The human race, where did it go?
CASSANDRA: They say mankind has touched every star in the sky.
ROSE: So, you're not the last human.
CASSANDRA: I am the last pure human. The others mingled. Oh, they call themselves New humans and Proto-humans and Digi-humans, even Humanish, but you know what I call them? Mongrels.
ROSE: Right. And you stayed behind.
CASSANDRA: I kept myself pure.
ROSE: How many operations have you had?
CASSANDRA: Seven hundred and eight. Next week, it's seven hundred and nine. I'm having my blood bleached. Is that why you wanted a word? You could be flatter, Rose. You've got a little bit of a chin poking out.
ROSE: I'd rather die.
CASSANDRA: Honestly, it doesn't hurt.
ROSE: No, I mean it. I would rather die. It's better to die than live like you, a bitchy trampoline.
CASSANDRA: Oh, well. What do you know?
ROSE: I was born on that planet, and so was my mum, and so was my dad, and that makes me officially the last human being in this room, 'cos you're not human. You've had it all nipped and tucked and flattened till there's nothing left. Anything human got chucked in the bin. You're just skin, Cassandra. Lipstick and skin. Nice talking.

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Cassandra
Talking about: Cassandra demonstrates her prejudices. Rose is not impressed at all.



 

EPISODE 3, SERIES 1: THE UNQUIET DEAD
Written by Mark Gatiss


ROSE: What're you doing?!
GWYNETH: Oh, it's a tragedy, miss. Don't worry yourself. Me and the master will deal with it. The fact is, this poor lady's been taken with the brain fever and we have to get her to the infirmary.
ROSE: She's cold. She's dead! Oh, my God, what'd you do to her?

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Gwyneth
Talking about: The poor zombie lady.

 

GWYNETH: Please, miss, you shouldn't be helping. It's not right.
ROSE: Don't be daft. Sneed works you to death. How much do you get paid?
GWYNETH: Eight pound a year, miss.
ROSE: How much?
GWYNETH: I know. I would've been happy with six.
ROSE: So, did you go to school or what?
GWYNETH: Of course I did. What do you think I am, an urchin? I went every Sunday, nice and proper.
ROSE: What, once a week?
GWYNETH: We did sums and everything. To be honest, I hated every second.
ROSE: Me too.
GWYNETH: Don't tell anyone, but one week, I didn't go and ran on the heath all on my own.

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Gwyneth
Talking about: Rose probes Gwyneth about her life and working conditions. They then talk about boys, Sneed, the Doctor and Rose's father - but this bit doesn't mention any men.

 

GWYNETH: Mister Sneed says I think too much. I'm all alone down here. I bet you've got dozens of servants, haven't you, miss?
ROSE: No, no servants where I'm from.
GWYNETH: And you've come such a long way.
ROSE: What makes you think so?
GWYNETH: You're from London. I've seen London in drawings, but never like that. All those people rushing about half naked, for shame. And the noise, and the metal boxes racing past, and the birds in the sky, no, they're metal as well. Metal birds with people in them. People are flying. And you, you've flown so far. Further than anyone. The things you've seen. The darkness. The big bad wolf!... I'm sorry. I'm sorry, miss.
ROSE: It's all right.

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Gwyneth
Talking about: After some discussion of men (both specific men and in general) Gwyneth reads Rose's mind and sees her past and future.

 

ROSE: I don't care. They're not using her.
GWYNETH: Don't I get a say, miss?
ROSE: Look, you don't understand what's going on.
GWYNETH: You would say that, miss, because that's very clear inside your head, that you think I'm stupid.
ROSE: That's not fair.
GWYNETH: It's true, though. Things might be very different where you're from, but here and now, I know my own mind, and the angels need me.

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Gwyneth
Talking about: Rose is trying to protect Gwyneth. Gwyneth insists on being allowed to make her own choice.



 

EPISODE 4, SERIES 1: ALIENS OF LONDON
Written by Russell T Davies

JACKIE: The hours I've sat here, days and weeks and months, all on my own. I thought you were dead, and where were you? Travelling. What the hell does that mean, travelling? That's no sort of answer. You ask her. She won't tell me. That's all she says. Travelling.
ROSE: That's what I was doing.
JACKIE: When your passport's still in the drawer? It's just one lie after another.
ROSE: I meant to phone. I really did. I just I forgot.
JACKIE: What, for a year? You forgot for a year? And I am left sitting here. I just don't believe you. Why won't you tell me where you've been?

More than one woman: Jackie Tyler, Rose Tyler
Talking about: Jackie is furious at Rose for her disappearance.
Notes: Shortly, the policeman and the Doctor involve themselves in this conversation, but this bit is purely between mother and daughter.

 

JACKIE: Did you think about me at all?
ROSE: I did. All the time, but-
JACKIE: One phone call. Just to know that you were alive.
ROSE: I'm sorry. I really am.
JACKIE: Do you know, what terrifies me is that you still can't say. What happened to you, Rose? What can be so bad that you can't tell me, sweetheart? Where were you?

More than one woman: Jackie Tyler, Rose Tyler
Talking about: Rose apologises to her mother for what happened.



 

EPISODE 5, SERIES 1: WORLD WAR III
Written by Russell T Davies

ROSE: Hasn't it got, like, defence codes and things? Couldn't we just launch a nuclear bomb at them?
HARRIET: You're a very violent young woman.
ROSE: I'm serious. We could.
HARRIET: Well, there's nothing like that in here. Nuclear strikes do need a release code, yes, but it's kept secret by the United Nations.

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Harriet Jones
Talking about: Nuclear bombs!

 

JACKIE: I'll get a proper job. I'll work weekends. I'll pass my test, and if Jim comes round again, I'll say no. I really will.
ROSE: I'm not leaving because of you. I'm travelling, that's all, and then I'll come back.
JACKIE: But it's not safe.
ROSE: Mum, if you saw it out there you'd never stay home.

More than one woman: Jackie Tyler, Rose Tyler
Talking about: Jackie tries to persuade her daughter to stay home.
Notes: A man - "Jim" is mentioned in this conversation, but he's just window dressing to the bigger issue: Rose leaving her mother behind.



 

EPISODE 7, SERIES 1: THE LONG GAME
Written by Russell T Davies

CATHICA: Okay. So, ladies, gentlemen, multi-sex, undecided or robot- my name is Cathica Santini Khadeni. That's Cathica with a C, in case you want to write to Floor five hundred praising me, and please do. Now, please feel free to ask any questions. The process of news gathering must be open, honest, and beyond bias. That's company policy.
SUKI: Actually, it's the law.
CATHICA: Yes, thank you, Suki. Okay, keep it calm. Don't show off for the guests. Here we go.

More than one woman: Cathica, Suki
Talking about: As they work, the two women snipe at each other a little.

 

(Suki pulls her hands away as if she has just received an electric shock. The other six lift their hands and the information beam shuts down. Cathica's portal closes.)
CATHICA: Come off it, Suki. I wasn't even halfway. What was that for?
SUKI: Sorry. It must've been a glitch.
CATHICA: Oh.

More than one woman: Cathica, Suki
Talking about: Their work.

 

SUKI: I don't believe it. Floor five hundred.
CATHICA: How the hell did you manage that? I'm above you.
SUKI: I don't know. I just applied on the off chance and they've said yes.
CATHICA: That's so not fair. I've been applying to Floor five hundred for three years.

More than one woman: Cathica, Suki
Talking about: Cathica is annoyed Suki’s been promoted over her.



 

EPISODE 8, SERIES 1: FATHER’S DAY
Written by Paul Cornell

SARAH: How do you mean, missing?
BEV: There's no Dave, no Sunita, no Bea.
SUZIE: There's no one from the Lamb and Flag.
SARAH: Oh, my train's detached again. I knew I should've used Velcro.
JACKIE: I'm here. Stop your bellyaching. Take Rose a sec, will you?
(Jackie hands over a baby in a carry cot.)
BEV: Oh, ain't she pretty?
JACKIE: She's a little madam, that's what she is.

More than one woman: Jackie Tyler, Bev, Suzie, Sarah
Talking about: Some people haven’t turned up for the wedding. Everyone’s fussing about their dresses and things.

 

JACKIE: And who's this? What're you looking at with your mouth open?
ROSE: Your hair.
JACKIE: What?!
ROSE: I've never seen it like. I mean, it's lovely. Your hair's lovely. And that baby you're holding. That would be your baby.

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Jackie Tyler
Talking about: Rose is shocked to see her mother as a younger woman.



 

EPISODE 10, SERIES 1: THE DOCTOR DANCES
Written by Steven Moffat

NANCY: Who are you? Who are any of you?
ROSE: You'd never believe me if I told you.
NANCY: You just told me that was an ambulance from another world. There are people running around with gas mask heads calling for their mummies, and the sky's full of Germans dropping bombs on me. Tell me, do you think there's anything left I couldn't believe?
ROSE: We're time travellers from the future.
NANCY: Mad, you are.
ROSE: We have a time travel machine. seriously!
NANCY: It's not that. All right, you've got a time travel machine. I believe you. Believe anything, me. But what future?
ROSE: Nancy, this isn't the end. I know how it looks, but it's not the end of the world or anything
NANCY: How can you say that? Look at it.
ROSE: Listen to me. I was born in this city. I'm from here, in like, fifty years time.
NANCY: From here?
ROSE: I'm a Londoner. From your future.
NANCY: But, but you're not
ROSE: What?
NANCY: German.
ROSE: Nancy, the Germans don't come here. They don't win. Don't tell anyone I told you so, but you know what? You win.
NANCY: We win?
ROSE: Come on!

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Nancy
Talking about: Time travel, and what Rose knows about the future.



 

EPISODE 11, SERIES 1: BOOMTOWN
Written by Russell T Davies

CATHY: Excuse me, Mrs Blaine? My name's Cathy Salt, I represent the Cardiff Gazette.
MARGARET: I'm sorry, I'm not doing interviews. I can't bear self publicity.
CATHY: But are you aware of the curse?
MARGARET: Whatever do you mean? Cathy, wasn't it?
CATHY: Cathy Salt. That's what some of your engineers are saying, that the Blaidd Drwg Project is cursed.
MARGARET: Sounds rather silly to me.
CATHY: That's what I thought. I was just chasing a bit of local colour. But the funny thing is, when you start piecing it all together, it does begin to look a bit odd.
MARGARET: In what way?
CATHY: The deaths, the number of deaths associated with this project. First of all, there was the entire team of the European Safety Inspectors.
MARGARET: But they were French! It’s not my fault if Danger Explosives was only written in Welsh.
CATHY: And then there was that accident with the Cardiff Heritage Committee.
MARGARET: The electrocution of that swimming pool was put down to natural wear and tear.
CATHY: And then the architect?
MARGARET: It was raining, visibility was low. my car simply couldn't stop.
CATHY: And then just recently, Mister Cleaver, the government's nuclear adviser.
MARGARET: Slipped on an icy patch.
CATHY: He was decapitated.
MARGARET: It was a very icy patch. I'm afraid these stories are nothing more than typical small town thinking. I really haven't got time. If you'll excuse me.
CATHY: Except, before he died, Mister Cleaver posted some of his findings online.
MARGARET: Did he now?
CATHY: If you know where to look. He was concerned about the reactor.
MARGARET: Oh, all that technical stuff!
CATHY: Specifically, that the design of the suppression pool would cause the hydrogen recombiners to fail, precipitating in the collapse in the containment isolation system and resulting in a meltdown.
MARGARET: Who's been doing her homework?
CATHY: That's my job.
MARGARET: I think, Cathy Salt, I think you and I should have a word in private.

More than one woman: Margaret Blaine (really Blon Siltheen), Cathy Salt
Talking about: The suspicious goings-on surrounding the Blaidd Drwg Project.

 

MARGARET: So, you were saying. These outlandish theories of yours?
(Margaret dashes into a cubicle. There are squelchy sounds.)
CATHY: Sounds like we got here just in time.
MARGARET: Continue.
CATHY: Well, I don't know much about nuclear physics, but from what I could make out, Cleaver was saying that the whole project could go up worse than Chernobyl.
(Margaret unzips her forehead. Cathy notices the light under the door.)
CATHY: Is there something wrong with the lights?
MARGARET: Oh, they're always on the blink. I can't tell you how many memos I've sent. So, Chernobyl.
CATHY: Apparently, but a thousand times worse. I know it sounds absurd, there must be so many safety regulations. But Cleaver seemed to be talking about a nuclear holocaust. He almost made it sound deliberate. I mean, we're hardly the Sunday Times, we're only the Cardiff Gazette, but we still have a duty to report the facts.
MARGARET: And you're going to print this information?
CATHY: Are you all right? You sound a bit.
MARGARET: Sore throat. Ahem, ahem. Just a little tickle. But tell me, do you intend to make this information public?
CATHY: I have to.
MARGARET: So be it.
CATHY: Mind you, my boyfriend thinks I'm mad. We're getting married next month, and he says if I cause a fuss, I could lose my job just when we need the money.
MARGARET: Boyfriend?
CATHY: Jeffery. Civil Servant. He's nothing exciting, but he's mine.
MARGARET: When's the wedding?
CATHY: The nineteenth. It's really just to stop my mother from nagging, but the baby sort of clinched it, I suppose.
MARGARET: You're with child?
(Margaret sits on the toilet.)
CATHY: Three months. It's not showing yet. Wasn't planned, it was an accident. Nice accident, though.
MARGARET: Congratulations.
CATHY: Thank you. How about you? You got any kids?
MARGARET: No.
CATHY: Is there a Mister Blaine?
MARGARET: Not anymore. I'm all on my own. I had quite a sizeable family, once upon a time. Wonderful brothers. Oh, they were bold. But all of them gone now. Maybe you're right. Maybe I'm cursed.
CATHY: No, no, I don't think so. Not really.
MARGARET: You're very kind. If you don't mind, I might be a while. You run along. Perhaps we could do this another day.
CATHY: Are you all right?
MARGARET: Fine!
CATHY: Okay, I'll tell you what. I'll leave my details with your office. Thanks for talking.
MARGARET: Thank you.

More than one woman: Margaret Blaine (really Blon Siltheen), Cathy Salt
Talking about: The suspicious goings-on surrounding the Blaidd Drwg Project, still. Margaret is about to kill Cathy before she talks, but hesitates when she finds out she’s pregnant.
Notes: While a lot of male relatives of the women are mentioned in this conversation, it isn’t about any of them, so I think it passes.



 

EPISODE 12, SERIES 1: BAD WOLF
Written by Russell T Davies

LYNDA: I won't forget you.
CROSBIE: I'm sorry I stole your soap.
LYNDA: I don't mind, honestly.

ROSE: Did more than that. Stopped World War Three with her. Harriet Jones.

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Jackie Tyler
Talking about: Another woman, Harriet Jones.



ROSE: That's only two streets away. What about Mo? Where's she living now?
JACKIE: I don't know. Peak District.
ROSE: Well, we'll go to cousin Mo's then.
JACKIE: No, it's Christmas Eve! We're not going anywhere! What're you babbling about?
ROSE: Mum. Where'd you get that tree?
(The Christmas tree is now green.)
ROSE: That's a new tree. Where'd you get it?
JACKIE: I thought it was you.
ROSE: How can it be me?
JACKIE: Well, you went shopping. There was a ring at the door, and there it was!
ROSE: No, that wasn't me.
JACKIE: Then who was it ?

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Jackie Tyler
Talking about: Rose wants to leave the flat immediately. Turns out they’re in danger from a Christmas tree.

 

SALLY: And they're moving. The ship's still in flight now. We've got it on the Hubble array.
HARRIET: Moving in which direction?
SALLY: Towards us.
HARRIET: How fast?
SALLY: Very fast.
HARRIET: What was your name, again?
SALLY: Sally.
HARRIET: Thank you, Sally.

ROSE: Love you, love you.

More than one woman: Jackie Tyler, Rose Tyler
Talking about: Rose is saying goodbye to her mother.


CASSANDRA: But I'm so alone, hidden down here. The last Human in existence.
ROSE: Don't start that again. They've called this planet New Earth.
CASSANDRA: A vegetable patch.
ROSE: And there's millions of Humans out there. Millions of them.
CASSANDRA: Mutant stock.
ROSE: They evolved, Cassandra. They just evolved, like they should. You stayed still. You got yourself all pickled and preserved, and what good did it do you?
CASSANDRA: Oh, I remember that night. Drinks for the Ambassador of Thrace. That was the last time anyone told me I was beautiful. After that it all became such hard work.
ROSE: Well, you've got a knack for survival, I'll give you that.
CASSANDRA: But I've not been idle, Rose, tucked away underneath this hospital. I've been listening. The Sisters are hiding something.
ROSE: What do you mean?
CASSANDRA: Oh these cats have secrets. Hush, let me whisper. Come close.
ROSE: You must be joking if you think I'm coming anywhere near you.

More than one woman: Cassandra, Rose Tyler
Talking about: Rose is still mightily unimpressed by Cassandra’s prejudices. The two exchange some kidnapper-to-hostage talk.

 

CASS-ROSE: I will. As soon as I've found someone younger, and less common, then I'll junk her with the waste. Now hushaby. It's showtime.
JATT: Anything we can do to help?
CASS-ROSE: Straight to the point, Whiskers. I want money.
CASP: The Sisterhood is a charity. We don't give money. We only accept.
CASS-ROSE: The humans across the water pay you a fortune, and that's exactly what I need. A one-off payment, that's all I want. Oh, and perhaps a yacht. In return for which, I shall tell the city nothing of your institutional murder. Is that a deal?
CASP: I'm afraid not.
CASS-ROSE: I'd really advise you to think about this.
CASP: Oh, there's no need. I have to decline.
CASS-ROSE: I'll tell them, and you've no way of stopping me. You're not exactly Nuns with Guns. You're not even armed.
CASP: Who needs arms when we have claws?

More than one woman: Cassandra in Rose’s body, Sister Jatt, Sister Casp
Talking about: Cassandra attempts to blackmail the Sisters.

 

CASS-DOCTOR: Yap, yap, yap. God, it was tedious inside your head. Hormone city.
ROSE: We're going to die if-
(Matron Casp grabs her ankle.)
ROSE: Get off!
CASP: All our good work. All that healing. The good name of the Sisterhood. You have destroyed everything.
CASS-DOCTOR: Go and play with a ball of string.
CASP: Everywhere, disease. This is the human world. Sickness!
(A diseased arm reaches up and grasps Casp's ankle. She falls, screaming.)
ROSE: Move!

More than one woman: Cassandra in the Doctor’s body, Rose Tyler, Sister Casp
Talking about: Sister Casp tries to stop Cassandra escaping.

 

CASS-DOCTOR: Now what do we do?
ROSE: Use the sonic screwdriver.

More than one woman: Cassandra in the Doctor’s body, Rose Tyler
Talking about: The sonic screwdriver.


ROSE: Good luck.
(Cassandra in Chip’s body walks to her younger self)
CASSANDRA: (to her guests) …and if you actually see them, you're shocked. But don't quote me on that. Oh, naughty. À bientôt!
CASS-CHIP: Excuse me, Lady Cassandra.
CASSANDRA: I'm sorry, I don't need anything right now. I'm fine, thank you.
CASS-CHIP: No, I just wanted to say you look beautiful.
CASSANDRA: Well, that's very kind, you strange little thing. Thank you very much.
CASS-CHIP: I mean it. You look so beautiful.
CASSANDRA: Thank you.

More than one woman: Cassandra in Chip’s body, younger Cassandra, Rose Tyler
Talking about: Cassandra tells her younger self she is beautiful.

More than one woman: Isobel, Flora

ISOBEL: Mistletoe. They're all garlanded in mistletoe and the wolf doesn't attack them. Who brought this into the kitchen?

More than one woman: Isobel, Flora

VICTORIA: What will you do? Will you stay here?
ISOBEL: I don't think I could. I'd sell it, or I'd pull this place down.
VICTORIA: Although we may not speak of these events in public, they will not be forgotten, I promise you that. Your husband's sacrifice, the ingenuity of his father, they will live on.
ISOBEL: But how?
VICTORIA: I saw last night that Great Britain has enemies beyond imagination, and we must defend our borders on all sides. I propose an Institute to investigate these strange happenings and to fight them. I would call it Torchwood. The Torchwood Institute.

More than one woman: Queen Victoria, Isobel
Talking about: To defend Britain from aliens, Queen Victoria starts the Torchwood Institute. (Now, whatever happened to that?)
Notes: While men do feature heavily in this conversation, I think ultimately it’s not really about them. What do you think?



 

EPISODE 3, SERIES 2: SCHOOL REUNION
Written by Toby Whithouse

JACKSON: What're you doing?
ROSE: Calling an ambulance.
JACKSON: No need. She's quite all right.
(There is a whumph! like a sudden fire, and a scream.)
JACKSON: It's fine. She does that.
(The woman goes back into the smoke filled office. Rose sees that the spilt oil has eaten through metal.)

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Jackson
Talking about: The mysteriously injured dinner lady.

 

ROSE: Hello, can we focus? Does anyone notice anything strange about this? Rats in school?
SARAH: Well, obviously they use them in Biology lessons. They dissect them. Or maybe you haven't reached that bit yet. How old are you?
ROSE: Excuse me, no one dissects rats in school anymore. They haven't done that for years. Where are you from, the dark ages?

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Sarah Jane Smith
Talking about: The two women trade insults about the other’s age.

 

SARAH: It's not working.
ROSE: Give it to me.
SARAH: Used to work first time in my day.
ROSE: Well, things were a lot simpler back then.
SARAH: Rose, can I give you a bit of advice?
ROSE: I've got a feeling you're about to.

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Sarah Jane Smith
Talking about: The sonic screwdriver, nostalgia.

 

ROSE: The thing is, when you two met they'd only just got rid of rationing. No wonder all that space stuff was a bit too much for you.
SARAH: I had no problem with space stuff. I saw things you wouldn't believe.
ROSE: Try me.
SARAH: Mummies.
ROSE: I've met ghosts.
SARAH: Robots. Lots of robots.
ROSE: Slitheen, in Downing Street.
SARAH: Daleks!
ROSE: Met the Emperor.
SARAH: Anti-matter monsters.
ROSE: Gas masked zombies.
SARAH: Real living dinosaurs.
ROSE: Real living werewolf.
SARAH: The Loch Ness Monster!
ROSE: Seriously?

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Sarah Jane Smith
Talking about: The two women try to one-up each other.

 

ROSE: I love it.
SARAH: Hey, you, what's forty seven times three hundred and sixty nine?
ROSE: No idea. It's gone now. The oil's faded.
SARAH: But you're still clever. More than a match for him.
ROSE: You and me both.

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Sarah Jane Smith
Talking about: Rose is no longer a hyper-genius, but Sarah Jane tells her she’s still clever.
Notes: While the Doctor is heavily mentioned in this conversation, primarily it’s about Rose and Sarah Jane complimenting each other, so I think it passes.



 

EPISODE 4, SERIES 2: THE GIRL IN THE FIREPLACE
Written by Steven Moffat

REINETTE: Oh, Katherine, you are too wicked.
KATHERINE: Oh, speaking of wicked, I hear Madame de Chateauroux is ill and close to death.
REINETTE: Yes. I am devastated.
KATHERINE: Oh, indeed. I myself am frequently inconsolable.

More than one woman: Reinette, Katherine
Talking about: Madame de Chateauroux. (Who was real!)
Notes: The next line is “The King will therefore be requiring a new mistress”. So naturally while these women are talking about another woman, they're also talking about an obstacle on their paths to the King being removed. But I feel this bit still counts as those four lines illustrate something about Reinette's character - she doesn't mind stepping over people in pursuit of power.

 

ROSE: Madame de Pompadour. Please, don't scream or anything. We haven't got a lot of time. I've come to warn you that they'll be here in five years.
REINETTE: Five years?
ROSE: Some time after your thirty seventh birthday. I er, I can't give you an exact date. It's a bit random. But they're coming. It's going to happen. In a way, for us, it's already happening. I'm sorry, it's hard to explain. The Doctor does this better.
REINETTE: Then be exact, and I will be attentive.
ROSE: There isn't time.
REINETTE: There are five years.
ROSE: For you. I haven't got five minutes.
REINETTE: Then also be concise.
ROSE: Er, there's, say, a vessel, a ship, a sort of sky ship, and it's full of, well, you. Different bits of your life in different rooms, all jumbled up. I told you it was complicated. Sorry.

More than one woman: Reinette, Rose Tyler
Talking about: The complicated nature of the situation Reinette is in.
Notes: After this bit, the conversation turns to be about the Doctor. But this bit isn’t! Course, it’s only really plot development, but it’s plot development being said by two women to each other.

 

REINETTE: Those screams. Is that my future?
ROSE: Yeah. I'm sorry.
REINETTE: Then I must take the slower path.

More than one woman: Reinette, Rose Tyler
Talking about: Reinette is stricken by her predicament. Rose is sorry.



 

EPISODE 5, SERIES 2: RISE OF THE CYBERMEN
Written by Tom Macrae

ROSE: Missis Tyler, is there anything I can get you?
JACKIE: The last twenty years back.
ROSE: I can manage a glass of champagne or a nice cup of tea?
JACKIE: Oh, that'd do me.
(Rose sits next to Jackie.)
ROSE: My mum loves that. End of a long night she never goes straight to bed, she always stays up just to have that last cup of tea.
JACKIE: Oh, I'm the same.
ROSE: Two sugars.
JACKIE: And me.

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, the alternate version of Jackie Tyler
Talking about: Mostly, tea.

 

JACKIE: Are you commenting on my marriage?
ROSE: No, I was just-
JACKIE: Who the hell do you think you are? You're staff. You're nothing but staff. You're just the serving girl, for God's sake. And you are certainly not getting paid. Don't you dare talk to me.

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, the alternate version of Jackie Tyler
Talking about: Alternate Jackie is furious (and instantly shows herself to be nothing like the real Jackie) when the unknown girl comments on her marriage.



 

EPISODE 6, SERIES 2: AGE OF STEEL
Written by Tom Macrae

ROSE: How many of those you got?
MOORE: Just two sets.
ROSE: Okay. If that's the best way of finding Jackie, then I'm coming with you.

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Mrs Moore
Talking about: Moore’s Cyber earpods.
Notes: Although Rose delivers the “If that’s the best way…” bit to the group, the “Okay” bit appears to be directed at Mrs Moore, so…a pass?

 

CYBERMAN: No, I am Cyber-form. Once I was Jacqueline Tyler.
ROSE: But you can't be. Not her.
CYBERMAN: Her brain is inside this body.

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, … alternate, cyber-Jackie Tyler?
Talking about: What happened to her.
Notes: RIGHT THIS IS COMPLICATED. Is Cyber-Jackie still actually Jackie? She remembers Pete, so there’s a trace of the real Jackie in there, even though she’s in a genderless robot body. Since the Cybermen remember their old lives when the emotional inhibitor is removed, they retain a little humanity no matter what, apparently. So, er, since Jackie’s brain is still intact, she’s still essentially (though her emotions are inhibited) her, right? Bloody science fiction.

 

 

 

EPISODE 7, SERIES 2: THE IDIOT’S LANTERN
Written by Mark Gatiss

ROSE: That's just a woman on the telly. That's just a programme.
WIRE: What a pretty little girl.
ROSE: Oh, my God. Are you talking to me?
WIRE: Yes I'm talking to you, little one. Unseasonably chilly for the time of year, don't you think?
ROSE: What are you?
WIRE: I'm the Wire, and I'm hungry!

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, the Wire
Talking about: Rose is shocked to discover the woman on the TV has turned sentient.



 

EPISODE 8, SERIES 2: THE IMPOSSIBLE PLANET
Written by Matt Jones

 

IDA: Oxygen holding. Internal gravity fifty six point six. We should be okay.
ROSE: Never mind the earthquake, that's, that's one hell of a storm. What is that, a hurricane?
SCOOTI: You'd need an atmosphere for a hurricane. There's no air out there. It's a complete vacuum.
ROSE: Then what's shaking the roof?
IDA: You're not joking. You really don't know. Well introductions. F Y I, as they said in the olden days.

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Ida, Scooti
Talking about: Space!

 

IDA: And yet here we are, beyond the laws of physics. Welcome on board.
ROSE: But if there's no atmosphere out there, what's that?
IDA: Stars breaking up. Gas clouds. We have whole solar systems being ripped apart above our heads, before falling into that thing.
ROSE: So, a bit worse than a storm, then.
IDA: Just a bit.
ROSE: Just a bit, yeah.

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Ida
Talking about: Space! again.


ROSE: You've got slaves?
SCOOTI: Don't start. She's like one of that lot. Friends of the Ood.
ROSE: Well maybe I am, yeah. Since when do humans need slaves?

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Scooti
Talking about: Humankind’s dubious ‘ownership’ of the Ood.



 

EPISODE 11, SERIES 2: FEAR HER
Written by Matthew Graham

TRISH: Maeve? Are you okay?
MAEVE: No, love, I'm not.
TRISH: Do you want me to call a doctor?
MAEVE: Doctor can't help. Can't you, can't you feel it, Trish?
TRISH: I can't feel anything.

More than one woman: Trish Webber, Maeve
Talking about: Trish wants to help Maeve.

 

MAEVE: It takes them when they're playing.
ROSE: What takes them?
MAEVE: Danny, Jane, Dale. Snatched in the blink of an eye. 

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Maeve
Talking about: The missing children.

 

TRISH: You have to come down some time, Chloe.
CHLOE: I'm busy, mum.
TRISH: Look at it in here. You must've used up half a rainforest.
(Chloe is drawing the cat on Dale's picture. He is now sitting in the bottom left corner.)
TRISH: That's Dale. Why did you draw him so sad?
CHLOE: I didn't draw him like that. Dale made himself sad, so I'm going to draw him a friend. That's what he needs. More friends.
TRISH: Have you seen the TV?
(Trish clicks on Chloe's laptop, and News24 comes on with its live Countdown to the Games. Huw Edwards' soft Welsh lilt provides the commentary.)
TRISH: Look, this'll cheer you up. The Torch is getting close. It'll pass right by our street. And tonight they'll light the Olympic Flame in the stadium, and the whole world will be looking at our city. I mean, doesn't that make you feel part of something? Sweetheart? Chloe?
CHLOE: I'm busy, mum.
TELEVISION: Danny Fairweather carries the torch past them on this wonderful summer's day. Very fitting. We've seen lots of our sporting royalty, too…
TRISH: Okay. You're tired, Chloe. I heard you calling out again, last night.
CHLOE: It's fine.
TRISH: Nightmares?
CHLOE: I'm drawing!
TRISH: Whatever they are, they're just dreams, you do know that? They can't hurt you.
CHLOE: I'm busy. Unless you want me to draw you, mum.
TRISH: If you want to stay cooped up in here, fine. I'll leave you to it.
(Trish leaves. The cat is finished.)

More than one woman: Trish Webber, Chloe Webber
Talking about: Trish tries and fails to draw (hehehe. Draw.) her daughter out of herself. Chloe’s responses are almost threatening…

 

CHLOE: We need to stay together.
TRISH: Yes, we do.
CHLOE: No. Not you, us. We need to stay together, and then it'll be all right.
ROSE: Trish, the drawings. Have you seen what Chloe's drawings can do?
TRISH: Who gave you permission to come into her room? Get out of my house.

More than one woman: Trish Webber, Chloe Webber, Rose Tyler
Talking about: Rose knows that little Chloe is trapping people in drawings, but Trish won’t accept it.

 

ROSE: Chloe has a power. And I don't know how, but she used it to take Danny Edwards, Dale Hicks. She's using it to snatch the kids.
TRISH: Get out.
ROSE: Have you seen those drawings move?
TRISH: I haven't seen anything.

More than one woman: Trish Webber, Rose Tyler
Talking about: Rose continues to probe.

 

ROSE: Chloe? Chloe, it's Rose! Open the door!
(Chloe rips down some pictures and starts drawing on the wall.)
ROSE: We found your ship. We can send you home.
TRISH: Chloe?
ROSE: Open up! (to TRISH) Right, stand back.

More than one woman: Trish Webber, Rose Tyler
Talking about: Rose and Trish try to get the attention of Chloe (and the thing inside her.)

 

ROSE: Look, I've got your pod.
CHLOE: The pod is dead.
ROSE: It only needs heat.
CHLOE: It needs more than heat.
ROSE: What, then?

More than one woman: Chloe Webber, Rose Tyler
Talking about: Rose tells Chloe/the thing inside her that she’s found it’s pod.
Notes: I’m not sure about this one, because is it Chloe talking or the Isolus? I don’t know.

 

CHLOE: Mum?
TRISH: I'm here.
CHLOE: Mummy!

More than one woman: Trish Webber, Chloe Webber
Talking about: Chloe wants her mother.

 

CHLOE: Mummy!
ROSE: You can do it, Chloe!
CHLOE: I can't!
CHLOE'S DAD [OC]: Chloe, I'm coming.
CHLOE: I can't! I can't!
CHLOE'S DAD [OC]: I'm coming.
CHLOE: I can't.
CHLOE'S DAD [OC]: I'm coming.
CHLOE: Mummy.
CHLOE'S DAD [OC]: Chloe.
TRISH: I'm with you, Chloe. You're not alone. You'll never be alone again.
ROSE: Sing again! Chloe, sing!
CHLOE'S DAD [OC]: Chloe. Chloe. Chloe. Chloe. Chloe, I'm coming to hurt you. Chloe!
(CHLOE and TRISH start to sing)
CHLOE + TRISH: Merry merry king of the bush is he. Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, Kookaburra, gay your life must be. Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, Kookaburra, gay your life must be.
(The red glow fades and retreats.)
CHLOE + TRISH: Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree. Merry merry king of the bush is he. Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, Kookaburra, gay your life must be!

More than one woman: Trish Webber, Chloe Webber, Rose Tyler
Talking about: The bond between mother and daughter is enough to send the figment of Chloe’s dad back where it came from.
Notes: Okay, a man (well, a male Malevolent Entity) features heavily here. He’s not really part of the actual conversation, you only hear his threatening voice and nothing else, but he is there. In your opinion, does this scene count as a pass? Because…well, because I really want it to, I suppose. It was an important scene.



 

EPISODE 12, SERIES 2: ARMY OF GHOSTS
Written by Russell T Davies

ROSE: Mum, it's us! We're back!
JACKIE: Oh, I don't know why you bother with that phone. You never use it!
ROSE: Shut up, come here!
JACKIE: Oh, I love you!
ROSE: I love you!
JACKIE: I love you so much!

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Jackie Tyler
Talking about: They’re delighted to see each other again.

 

ROSE: Bazoolium. When it gets cold, yeah, it means it's going to rain. When it's hot, it's going to be sunny. You can use it to tell the weather.
JACKIE: I've got a surprise for you and all.
ROSE: Oh, I get her bazoolium, she doesn't even say thanks.

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Jackie Tyler
Talking about: This strange ‘bazoolium’ Rose has got for Jackie.

 

JACKIE: You've changed so much.
ROSE: For the better.
JACKIE: I suppose.
ROSE: Mum, I used to work in a shop.
JACKIE: I've worked in shops. What's wrong with that?
ROSE: No, I didn't mean that.
JACKIE: I know what you meant. What happens when I'm gone?
ROSE: Don't talk like that.
JACKIE: No, but really. When I'm dead and buried, you won't have any reason to come back home. What happens then?
ROSE: I don't know.
JACKIE: Do you think you'll ever settle down?
ROSE: The Doctor never will, so I can't. I'll just keep on travelling.
JACKIE: And you'll keep on changing. And in forty years’ time, fifty, there'll be this woman, this strange woman, walking through the marketplace on some planet a billion miles from Earth. But she's not Rose Tyler. Not anymore. She's not even human.

More than one woman: Rose Tyler, Jackie Tyler
Talking about: How much Rose has changed, and (in Jackie’s opinion) how it’s perhaps not for the better.
Notes: The Doctor does feature in (and, of course, hangs over) this conversation. But I think as it’s about Jackie’s fears much more than it’s about any man.

 

YVONNE: No, we shot it down. It violated our airspace. Then we stripped it bare. The weapon that destroyed the Sycorax on Christmas Day? That was us. Now, if you'd like to come with me. The Torchwood Institute has a motto. If it's alien, it's ours. Anything that comes from the sky, we strip it down and we use it for the good of the British Empire.
JACKIE: For the good of the what?
YVONNE: The British Empire.
JACKIE: There isn't a British Empire.
YVONNE: Not yet. Ah, excuse me. Now, if you wouldn't mind.

More than one woman: Jackie Tyler, Yvonne Hartman
Talking about: Torchwood and the British Empire.



 

EPISODE 13, SERIES 2: DOOMSDAY
Written by Russell T Davies


JACKIE: What happens in there? What's upgrading mean? What do they do?
YVONNE: I think they remove the brain. Sorry. I think they remove the brain and they put it in a suit of armour. That's what these things are. They're us.
CYBERMAN: Next.
JACKIE: This is your fault. You and your Torchwood. You've killed us all!
(Yvonne is taken away.)
YVONNE: I did my duty for Queen and Country. I did my duty. I did my duty. Oh, God. I did my duty.

More than one woman: Jackie Tyler, Yvonne Hartman
Talking about: The horrible thing that’s about to happen to them.
Notes: A Cyberman is involved in this conversation, but I still think it passes?

 

ROSE: You've got to.
JACKIE: Well, that's tough.
ROSE: Mum.

More than one woman: Jackie Tyler, Rose Tyler
Talking about: Rose tries to send her mother away, but Jackie isn’t having it.



 

 

 

 

 

EPISODE X, SERIES 3: THE RUNAWAY BRIDE
Written by Russell T Davies

NERYS: Well, it was all paid for. Why not?
DONNA: Thank you, Nerys.
SYLVIA: Well, what were we supposed to do? I got your silly little message in the end. I'm on Earth? Very funny. What the hell happened? How did you do it? I mean, what's the trick, because I'd love to know.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Sylvia Noble, Nerys
Talking about: The paid-for wedding and Donna’s abrupt exit from it.

 

DONNA: But that's what I've got inside me, that Huon energy thing. Oi! Look at me, lady, I'm talking. Where do I fit in? How comes I get all stacked up with these Huon particles? Look at me, you! Look me in the eye and tell me.
EMPRESS: The bride is so feisty.
(Lance is sneaking up behind the giant Empress with a fire axe.)
DONNA: Yes, I am! And I don't know what you are, you big thing, but a spider's just a spider and an axe is an axe!

More than one woman: Donna Noble, the Empress of the Racnoss
Talking about: Donna demands answers.
Notes: This one is tricky because even though Donna is talking to the Empress, the Empress isn’t really talking to her. What do you think? A pass?

 



 

EPISODE 1, SERIES 3: SMITH AND JONES
Written by Russell T Davies

MARTHA: No, listen, I've worked out a plan. We tell Annalise that the buffet tonight is one hundred per cent carbohydrate, and she won't turn up.
TISH: I wish you'd take this seriously. That's our inheritance she's spending, on fake tan. Tell you what, I'm not that far away, I'll drop by for a sandwich and we can draw up a battle plan.
MARTHA: In this weather? I'm not going out. It's pouring down.
TISH: It's not raining here.
(Tish turns the corner and sees a big black cloud over the hospital.)
TISH: That's weird. It's raining right on top of you, I can see it, but it's dry where I am.
MARTHA: Well, you just got lucky.
TISH: No, but it's like in cartoons. You know, when a man's got a cloud over his head.
MARTHA: Yeah, but listen. I'll tell you what we'll do.
(She sees the Doctor walk past wearing a dressing gown.)
MARTHA: We tell Dad and Annalise to get there early, about seven thirty, and we tell Leo get there at the same time so we can do all that birthday stuff. We tell Mum to get there for about eight thirty, nine, and that gives me time to have a word with Annalise, and-
(Swales touches Martha's arm.)
MARTHA: What?
SWALES: The rain.
MARTHA: It's only rain.
TISH: Martha, have you seen the rain?
MARTHA: Why's everyone fussing about rain?
SWALES: It's going up.
TISH: The rain is going up.

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Tish Jones, Julia Swales
Talking about: Annalise, the upcoming party, and the weather.

 

MARTHA: What the hell was that?
SWALES: Are you all right?
MARTHA: I think so, yeah. It felt like an earthquake, or-
SWALES: Martha? It's night. Look. It was lunchtime.
MARTHA: It's not night.
SWALES: But it's got to be. It's dark.
MARTHA: We're on the moon.
(A half Earth hangs in the black sky over a cratered surface.)
SWALES: We can't be.
MARTHA: We're on the moon. We're on the bloody moon.

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Julia Swales
Talking about: Their sudden transportation to the moon.

 

MARTHA: It's real. It's really real. Hold on.
(Martha reaches to open the window.)
SWALES: Don't! We'll lose all the air.
MARTHA: But they're not exactly air tight. If the air was going to get sucked out it would have happened straight away, but it didn't. So how come?

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Julia Swales
Talking about: The airtight windows.

 

TISH: (hugging MARTHA) Martha! Oh, God! I thought you were dead! What happened? It was so weird, because the police wouldn't say. They didn't have a clue. And I tried phoning. Mum's on her way, but she can't get through. They've closed off all the roads.
(The Doctor sneaks back to the TARDIS.)
TISH: There's thousands of people trying to get in. The whole city's come to a halt. And Dad phoned, because it's on the news and everything. He was crying.
(The sound of the TARDIS dematerialising.)
TISH: Oh, what a mess. What happened? I mean, what really happened? Where were you?

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Tish Jones
Talking about: Tish is relieved to see her sister.
Notes: This one’s awkward because Martha doesn’t react verbally to Tish (she’s still watching the Doctor leave). But she does react non-verbally – a hug back, a look, a smile – so I think it counts.

 

FRANCINE: And then she has a go at Martha, practically accused her of making the whole thing up.
MARTHA: Mum, I don't mind. Just leave it.
ANNALISE: Oh. ‘I've been to the moon!’ As if. They were drugged. It said so on the news.
FRANCINE: Since when did you watch the news? You can't handle Quiz Mania.
TISH: Annalise started it. She did. I heard her.

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Tish Jones, Francine Jones, Annalise
Talking about: Whether Martha really went to the moon or not.

 



 

EPISODE 3, SERIES 3: GRIDLOCK
Written by Russell T Davies

MARTHA: Don't you dare! Don't put that stuff in me, don't! Get off me!
CHEEN: It's just Sleep Fourteen. No, baby, don't fight it.
MARTHA: I'm telling you, don't!
(Martha falls asleep.)
CHEEN: That's it. Come on. That's it.

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Cheen
Talking about: Martha tries to stop Cheen drugging her.

 

MARTHA: Take me back. Whoever you are, just take me back to my friend. That's all I want. I won't cause any trouble. Just take me back.
CHEEN: I'm sorry. That's not a real gun.
MARTHA: Yeah, well, you would say that.
CHEEN: Where do you get a gun from, these days? I wouldn't even know how to fire.
MARTHA: No, nor me. Okay.
(Martha puts the gun down.)
CHEEN: What's your name?
MARTHA: Martha. Martha Jones.
CHEEN: Well, I'm Cheen, and this is Milo. And I swear we're sorry. We're really, really sorry. We just needed access to the fast line, but I promise, as soon as we arrive, we'll drop you off and you can go back and find your friend.
MARTHA: Seriously?
CHEEN: I swear! Look. Honesty patch. 

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Cheen
Talking about: Cheen explains Martha’s situation.

 

CHEEN: Well, because of me. I'm pregnant. We only discovered it last week. Scan says it's going to be a boy.
MARTHA: Right. What do I do now, congratulate my kidnappers?
CHEEN: Oh, we're not kidnappers. Not really.
MARTHA: Nope? You're idiots. You're having a baby, and you're wearing that?
(Martha pulls the Honesty patch from Cheen's neck.)
MARTHA: Not anymore.

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Cheen
Talking about: The drug that Cheen is taking.

 

CHEEN: It's only ten miles.
MARTHA: How long is it going to take?
CHEEN: About six years.
MARTHA: What?
CHEEN: Be just in time for him to start school.
MARTHA: No, sorry, hold on. Six years? Ten miles in six years? How come?

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Cheen
Talking about: The length of the journey.

 

MARTHA: How many cars are out there?
CHEEN: I don't think anyone knows. Here we go. Hungry?
MARTHA: Oh, thanks. But how far down is it to this fast lane?

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Cheen
Talking about: Cars and the fast lane.

 

MARTHA: What's that? It's coming from underneath.
CHEEN: It's that noise, doesn't it? It's like Kate said. The stories, they're true.
MARTHA: What stories?

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Cheen
Talking about: Whatever it is lurking in the smoke…

 



 

EPISODE 4, SERIES 3: DALEKS IN MANHATTAN
Written by Helen Raynor

TALLULAH: Girls, it's showtime!
MYRNA: Lois, you spoil my chasse tonight, I'm going to punch you.
LOIS: Aw, quick complaining, Myrna. Go buy yourself some glasses.

More than one woman: Tallulah, Myrna, Lois
Talking about: Their work!

TALLULAH: Come on, honey. Take a look. Ever been on stage before?
MARTHA: Oh, a little bit. You know, Shakespeare.
TALLULAH: How dull is that? Come and see a real show.

More than one woman: Tallulah, Martha Jones
Talking about: Being on stage.

 

MYRNA: What are you doing?
(Martha accidentally grabs a devil's tail and they both fall.)
TALLULAH: What are you doing?
LOIS: You're on my tail. Get off my tail!

More than one woman: Tallulah, Myrna, Lois, Martha Jones
Talking about: Martha accidentally messing up the show.

 



 

EPISODE 5, SERIES 3: EVOLUTION OF THE DALEKS
Written by Helen Raynor


MARTHA: Wait a minute. Down in the sewers, the Daleks mentioned this energy conductor.
TALLULAH: What does that mean?
MARTHA: I don't know. Maybe like a lightening conductor or - Dalekanium!
TALLULAH: Oh.
MARTHA: They said the Dalekanium was in place.
TALLULAH: In place where?

More than one woman: Tallulah, Martha Jones
Talking about: Daleks and their Dalekanium.

 

MARTHA: The ones underneath, they're from before. That means that whatever they changed must be on this top sheet but not on this one. We need to check one against the other.

FRANCINE: Hello?
MARTHA: Mum? It's me. It's Martha. Wow!
FRANCINE: Where are you? Don't you check your messages? I've been calling you.
MARTHA: Actually, a bit busy. Need you to do something for me.
FRANCINE: No, listen to me. We have to talk about this Doctor.

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Francine Jones
Talking about: Martha calls her mother to help her with the security questions.
Notes: The Doctor is mentioned in this scene, but I think it still passes as it’s not really about him.

MARTHA: Yeah. Of course.
FRANCINE: Martha
MARTHA: Mum, I. you know I love you, don't you?
FRANCINE: Of course I do. What's bought this on?
MARTHA: I never say it. I never get the time. I never think of it, and then- I really love you. Tell Dad, Leo and Tish that I love them.
(A blonde woman in a black suit is monitoring the conversation.)
FRANCINE: Martha, what's wrong?
MARTHA: Nothing. I promise.
FRANCINE: Where are you?
MARTHA: Just out.
FRANCINE: With anyone nice?
MARTHA: Some mates.
FRANCINE: What mates?
MARTHA: Mum, can we not just talk?
FRANCINE: Of course. What do you want to talk about?

MARTHA: Oh, no. Mum.
(Francine answers her mobile phone.)
FRANCINE: Hello?
MARTHA: It's me again.

MARTHA: Yeah. Tonight. Do my best. Er, just remind me. What day is it again?

EPISODE 8, SERIES 3: HUMAN NATURE
Written by Paul Cornell

(Evening. Martha brings two pints to a table.)
MARTHA: Ooo, it's freezing out here. Why can't we have a drink inside the pub?
JENNY: Now don't be ridiculous. You do get these notions! It's all very well, those Suffragettes. but that's London. That's miles away.
MARTHA: But don't you just want to scream sometimes, having to bow and scrape and behave. Don't you just want to tell them?
JENNY: I don't know. Things must be different in your country.
MARTHA: Yeah, well they are. Thank God I'm not staying.
JENNY: You keep saying that.
MARTHA: Just you wait. One more month and I'm as free as the wind. I wish you could come with me, Jenny. You'd love it.
JENNY: Where are you going to go?
MARTHA: Anywhere. Just look up there. Imagine you could go all the way out to the stars.
JENNY: You don't half say mad things.
MARTHA: That's where I'm going. Into the sky, all the way out.
(Something flashes in the sky.)
MARTHA: Did you see that?
JENNY: See what?
MARTHA: Did you see it, though? Right up there, just for a second.
JENNY: Martha, there's nothing there.
(Joan is walking through a field when she is blinded by a green light that appears to be searching the ground. Then it disappears. She runs.)
MARTHA: Matron, are you all right?
JOAN: Did you see that? There was something in the woods. This light.

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Jenny, Joan Redfern
Talking about: Their rights, Martha’s ‘mad things’ and a thing in the sky.

 

MARTHA: Jenny, where was that? On the horizon, where the light was headed.
JENNY: That's by Cooper's Field.
(Martha leaves.)
JENNY: You can't just run off. It's dark. You'll break a leg.

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Jenny
Talking about: Where the light fell.
Notes: Does this count as more than two lines? It must do, surely….

 

(Martha is pouring a cup of tea when Jenny comes in. The tray has two cups and a small cake on a stand.)
MARTHA: There you are. Come and look what I've got. Mister Poole didn't want his afternoon tea so Cook said I could have it. And there's enough for two. What are you standing there for?
(Jenny sniffs deeply.)
MARTHA: Are you all right?
JENNY: I must have a cold coming on.
MARTHA: The problem is, I keep thinking about them, but I don't know what to do.
JENNY: Thinking about who?
MARTHA: Mister Smith and Matron. Because it's never going to last. He's going to leave in a few weeks.
JENNY: Why?
MARTHA: It's like his contract comes to an end. And she's going to be heartbroken.
JENNY: Leave for where?
MARTHA: All sorts of places. I wish I could tell you, Jenny, but it's complicated.
JENNY: In what way?
MARTHA: I just can't.
JENNY: It sounds so interesting. Tell me. Tell me now.
MARTHA: Would you like some tea?
JENNY: Yes, thanks.
MARTHA: I could put a nice bit of gravy in the pot. And some mutton. Or sardines and jam. How about that?
JENNY: I like the sound of that.
MARTHA: Right. Hold on a tick.

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Mother Of Mine in Jenny’s body
Talking about: Jenny starts pressing Martha for information. Martha instantly suspects something is up.
Notes: While some of the first part of this is about the Doctor, the rest is about Martha’s quick thinking.

 



 

EPISODE 9, SERIES 3: THE FAMILY OF BLOOD
Written by Paul Cornell

MARTHA: What happened to Jenny? Is she gone?
JENNY: She is consumed. Her body's mine.

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Mother Of Mine in Jenny’s body
Talking about: Martha wants to know what happened to her friend.

 

MARTHA: I'm training to be a doctor. Not an alien doctor, a proper doctor. A doctor of medicine.
JOAN: Well that certainly is nonsense. Women might train to be doctors, but hardly a skivvy and hardly one of your colour.
MARTHA: Oh, do you think? Bones of the hand. Carpal bones, proximal row. Scaphoid, lunate, triquetal, pisiform. Distal row. Trapezium, trapezoid, capitate, hamate. Then the metacarpal bones extending in three distinct phalanges. Proximal, middle, distal.
JOAN: You read that in a book.

JOAN: I must go.
MARTHA: If we find that watch, then we can stop them.

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Joan Redfern
Talking about: Joan doesn’t believe a black woman could ever be a doctor. Martha swiftly proves her wrong.

 

JOAN: Oh, here we are. It should be empty. Oh, it's a long time since I've run that far.
MARTHA: But who lives here?
JOAN: If I'm right, no one.
(It is dark inside. The table is laid for tea.)
JOAN: Hello? No one home. We should be safe here.
MARTHA: Whose house is it, though?
JOAN: Er, the Cartwrights. That little girl at the school, she's Lucy Cartwright, or she's taken Lucy Cartwright's form. If she came home this afternoon and if the parents tried to stop their little girl, then they were vanished.
(Joan touches the teapot.)
JOAN: Stone cold. How easily I accept these ideas.

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Joan Redfern
Talking about: What happened to Lucy and her parents.

(Sally looks at the text on the wall)
SALLY: How can my name be written here? How is that possible?
(The doorbell rings.)
KATHY: Who'd come here? What are you doing? It could be a burglar.

KATHY: Okay. I'll stay here in case of-
SALLY: In case of?
KATHY: Incidents?
SALLY: Okay.

(Vivien gives Tish her coat.)
TISH: No, but I'm supposed to sit in?

More than one woman: Vivien Rook, Lucy Saxon, Tish Jones
Talking about: Lucy’s interview.

 

MARTHA: Mum? Oh my God. You're there.
FRANCINE: Of course I'm here, sweetheart. You all right?

MARTHA: That's why I came to find you. Know your enemy. (DOCHERTY gives her a funny look.) I've got this.
(A computer disc.)
MARTHA: No one's been able to look at a sphere close up. They can't even be damaged, except once. The lightning strike in South Africa brought one of them down, just by chance. I've got the readings on this.
(Docherty puts the disc into her computer, and thumps it as it struggles to read the data.)

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Docherty

EPISODE 1, SERIES 4: PARTNERS IN CRIME
Written by Russell T Davies

FOSTER: One hundred percent legal, one hundred percent effective.
PENNY: But, can I just ask, how many people have taken the pills to date?

More than one woman: Miss Foster, Penny Carter
Talking about: Miss Foster’s pills.

 

DONNA: Stacy Campbell?
STACY: Who wants to know?
DONNA: My name's Donna. I represent Adipose Industries, and you're on the list of our valued customers.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Stacy Campbell
Talking about: Stacy being a valued customer.

 

STACY: It's been fantastic. I've started the pills on Thursday. Five days later, I've lost eleven pounds.
DONNA: And no side effects or anything?
STACY: No, I feel fantastic. It's a new lease of life. Now, what do you think about these earrings. Do they work?
DONNA: Yeah, lovely. 

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Stacy Campbell
Talking about: Stacy’s pills and Stacy’s earrings.

 

DONNA: I like what you've done with the hall. Stacy? Are you all right? I wouldn't mind a little visit myself. Everything all right in there?

SYLVIA: And what time's this?
DONNA: How old am I?
SYLVIA: Not old enough to use a phone.
(A little later, Donna is sitting at the kitchen table with a mug of drink.)
SYLVIA: I thought you were only moving back for a couple of weeks. Look at you. I mean, you're never gonna find a flat, not while you're on the dole. And it’s no good sitting there, dressed up, looking like you're job hunting. You've got to do something. It's not like the 1980s. No one's unemployed these days except you. How long did that job with Health and Safety last? Two days, and then you walk out. “I have other plans.” Well, I've not seen them. And it's no good sitting there dreaming. No one's going to come along with a magic wand and make your life all better.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Sylvia Noble
Talking about: Donna gets a long lecture from her mother about how her life is going.

 

DONNA: (sotto) Not now.

SYLVIA: What are you doing in church?
DONNA: Praying.
SYLVIA: Huh, bit late for that, madam.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Sylvia Noble
Talking about: Donna invents a lie to explain why her mother can’t have the car.

 

FOSTER: We know you're in here, so why don't you make this nice and easy and show yourself? I'm waiting. I warn you, I'm not a patient woman. Now, out you come. Right. We'll do it the hard way. Get her.
(The guards kick open the cubicle doors. The fifth one contains Penny the reporter.)
FOSTER: There you are.
PENNY: I've been through the records, Foster, and all of your results have been faked. There's something about those pills you're not telling us.
FOSTER: Oh, I think I'll be conducting this interview, Penny.
PENNY: You've got no right to do this. Let me go!
(The Doctor lowers the cradle to Miss Foster's window. He ducks out of sight when they enter.)
PENNY: This is ridiculous.
FOSTER: Sit there.
PENNY: I'm phoning my editor.
FOSTER: I said sit.
(The Doctor uses a stethoscope to listen to the conversation.)
PENNY: You can't tie me up. What sort of a country do you think this is?
FOSTER: Oh, it's a beautifully fat country. And believe me, I've travelled a long way to find obesity on this scale.
PENNY: So, come on then, Miss Foster, those pills. What are they?
(Donna has arrived at the secretary's station outside the office.)
FOSTER: Well, you might just as well have a scoop, since you'll never see it printed. This (a capsule) is the spark of life.
PENNY: And what's that supposed to mean?
FOSTER: Officially, the capsule attracts all the fat cells and flushes them away. Well, it certainly attracts them. That part's true. But it binds the fat together and galvanises it to form a body.
PENNY: What do you mean, a body?
FOSTER: I am surprised you never asked about my name. I chose it well. Foster. As in foster mother. And these are my children.
(She takes a little creature out of a drawer and puts it on the desk.)
PENNY: You're kidding me. What the hell is that?
(Donna and the Doctor both look through the windows.)
FOSTER: Adipose. It's called an Adipose. Made out of living fat.
PENNY: But I don't understand.
FOSTER: From ordinary human people.

More than one woman: Miss Foster, Penny Carter
Talking about: Miss Foster explains her evil scheme to Penny.

 

SYLVIA: It's like a miracle. All that from just one little pill.
SUZETTE: And I've been eating like normal.
(Suzette starts twitching and growling.)
SYLVIA: You all right, love?
SUZETTE: Yeah, I'm just. Just. Funny sort of feeling, like-

More than one woman: Sylvia Noble, Suzette
Talking about: Those miracle pills…

 

DONNA: I know, Mum. I saw it. Little fat people. Listen, I've got to go. I'm going to stay with Veena for a bit.
SYLVIA: It was in the sky!
DONNA: Yeah. I know. Spaceship. But, I've still got the car keys. Look. There is a bin on Brook Street, about thirty feet from the corner. I'm going to leave them in there.
SYLVIA: What, a bin?
DONNA: Yes, that's it. Bin.
(The same bin the Doctor threw the pen into?)
SYLVIA: But you can't do that.
DONNA: Oh, stop complaining. The car's just down the road a bit. Got to go. Really. Got to go. Bye.
SYLVIA: But Donna, you can't
(Donna goes over to some people by the police barriers and speaks to a blonde.)
DONNA: Listen, there is this woman that's going to come along. A tall blond woman called Sylvia. Tell her that bin there, all right? It'll all make sense. That bin there.
(Donna leaves. The blonde turns around to face us. It is Rose Tyler. She walks away and disappears.) 

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Sylvia Noble, Rose Tyler
Talking about: The aliens and the car keys.

EVELINA: Sometimes in the smoke I see the most terrible things.
METELLA: Like what?
EVELINA: A face. A face of stone.

EVELINA: Oh, that's sacrilege.
DONNA: Nice to see you laugh, though. What do you do in old Pompeii, then, girls your age? You got mates? Do you go hanging about round the shops? TK Maximus?
EVELINA: I am promised to the Sisterhood for the rest of my life.
DONNA: Do you get any choice in that?
EVELINA: It's not my decision. The Sisters chose for me. I have the gift of sight.

EVELINA: There is only one prophecy.
DONNA: But everything I'm about to say to you is true, I swear. Just listen to me. Tomorrow, that mountain is going to explode. Evelina, please listen. The air is going to fill with ash and rocks, tons and tons of it, and this whole town is going to get buried.
EVELINA: That's not true.
DONNA: I'm sorry. I'm really sorry, but everyone's going to die.
SPURRINA: A new prophecy.
THALINA: Impossible. There is only one.
DONNA: Even if you don't believe me, just tell your family to get out of town. Just for one day. Just for tomorrow. But you've got to get out. You've got to leave Pompeii.
EVELINA: This is false prophecy.
SPURRINA: The noble woman. She spoke of a new prophecy. The fall of Pompeii.

MARTHA: Donna. Do they know where you are? Your family. I mean, that you're travelling with the Doctor?
DONNA: Not really. Although my granddad sort of waved us off. I didn't have time to explain.
MARTHA: You just left him behind?
DONNA: Yeah.
MARTHA: I didn't tell my family. I kept it all so secret, and it almost destroyed them.
DONNA: In what way?
MARTHA: They ended up imprisoned. They were tortured. My Mum, my Dad, my sister.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Martha Jones
Talking about: Their respective families being in danger.
Notes: Lots of men are mentioned in this conversation, and indeed Martha’s next line is about how she doesn’t believe her family’s torture was the Doctor’s fault, but I think it’s more about Martha and Donna than any of the men.

 

SYLVIA: Doesn't know what? And who's she, the cat's mother? And where've you been these past few days, lady, after that silly little trick with the car keys? I phoned Veena and she said she hadn't seen hide nor hair.
DONNA: I've just been travelling.
SYLVIA: Oh, hark at her, Michael Palin. Are you staying for tea, because I haven't got anything in. I've been trying to keep your granddad on that macrobiotic diet, but he sneaks off and gets pork pies at the petrol station. Don't deny it, I've seen the wrappers in the car. Oh, I don't miss a trick. Now then, what were you going to tell me? What don't I know?
DONNA: Nothing. Just nothing.
SYLVIA: Good. Right, then you can sit there and cut out those coupons. Every penny helps. This new mortgage doesn't pay for itself. Dad, kettle on.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Sylvia Noble
Talking about: Sylvia is rather dismissive of her daughter’s life.
Notes: I think Sylvia addresses a few snippets of this to Wilf. Does it still count?

 



 

EPISODE 5, SERIES 4: THE POISON SKY
Written by Helen Raynor

SYLVIA: All those things they said about pollution, and ozone and carbon, they're really happening aren't they?
DONNA: There's people working on it, Mum. They're going to fix it, I promise.
SYLVIA: Oh, like you'd know. You're so clever.
DONNA: Oh, don't start. Please don't.
SYLVIA: I'm sorry. I wish you were here.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Sylvia Noble
Talking about: The current state of the Earth. (Sylvia still takes some time out to belittle her daughter.)

 

MARTHA 2: Don't touch me.
MARTHA: It's not my fault. The Sontarans created you, but you had all my memories.
MARTHA 2: You've got a brother, sister, mother and father.
MARTHA: If you don't help me, they're going to die.
MARTHA 2: You love them.
MARTHA: Yes. Remember that?

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Martha’s clone
Talking about: The real Martha’s love for her family.

 

MARTHA 2: My heart. It's getting slower.
MARTHA: There's nothing I can do.
MARTHA 2: In your mind, you've got so many plans. There's so much that you want to do.
MARTHA: And I will. Never do tomorrow what you can do today, my mum says, because
MARTHA 2: Because you never know how long you've got. Martha Jones. All that life.

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Martha’s clone
Talking about: The real Martha’s life and plans.

 

MARTHA: How were they?
DONNA: Oh, same old stuff. They're fine. So, you going to come with us? We're not exactly short of space.
MARTHA: Oh, I have missed all this, but, you know. I'm good here, back at home. And I'm better for having been away. Besides, someone needs me. Never mind the universe, I've got a great big world of my own now.

More than one woman: Martha Jones, Donna Noble
Talking about: Their respective families and lives.

 



 

EPISODE 6, SERIES 4: THE DOCTOR’S DAUGHTER
Written by Stephen Greenhorn

MARTHA: Oh, I love this bit.
DONNA: I thought you wanted to go home.
MARTHA: I know, but all the same, it's that feeling you get.
DONNA: Like you swallowed a hamster?

More than one woman:
Martha Jones, Donna Noble
Talking about: Their feelings!

 

DONNA: I'm Donna. What's your name?
JENNY: Don't know. It's not been assigned.
DONNA: Well, if you don't know that, what do you know?
JENNY: How to fight.
DONNA: Nothing else?

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Jenny
Talking about: Who Jenny is and what she can do.

 

JENNY: And what's it like, the travelling?
DONNA: Oh, never a dull moment. It can be terrifying, brilliant and funny, sometimes all at the same time. I've seen some amazing things though. Whole new worlds.
JENNY: Oh, I'd love to see new worlds.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Jenny
Talking about: Travelling through time and space

 

DONNA: No, no, no, no. But listen, I spent six months working as a temp in Hounslow Library, and I mastered the Dewey Decimal System in two days flat. I'm good with numbers. It's staring us in the face.
JENNY: What is?
DONNA: It's the date. Assuming the first two numbers are some big old space date, then you've got year, month, day. It's the other way round, like it is in America.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Jenny
Talking about: The numbers on the wall.

 

DONNA: This war started seven days ago. Just a week. A week!
JENNY: They said years.
DONNA: No, they said generations. And if they're all like you, and they're products of those machines-

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Jenny
Talking about: The war.

 

MARTHA: Donna.
DONNA: Oh, you're filthy. What happened?.
MARTHA: I, er, took the surface route.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Martha Jones
Talking about: What happened to Martha.

 

DONNA: Are you sure about this?
MARTHA: Yeah, positive. I can't do this anymore. You'll be the same one day.
DONNA: Not me. Never. How could I ever go back to normal life after seeing all this?

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Martha Jones
Talking about: Their current paths in life.

 



 

EPISODE 7, SERIES 4: THE UNICORN AND THE WASP
Written by Gareth Roberts

AGATHA: No, no, please, don't. Thank you, Lady Eddison. Honestly, there's no need.
AGATHA: (turning to DONNA) Agatha Christie.
DONNA: What about her?
AGATHA: That's me.
DONNA: No. You're kidding.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Agatha Christie
Talking about: Agatha introduces herself.

 

DONNA: Next thing you know, you'll be telling me it's like Murder On The Orient Express, and they all did it.
AGATHA: Murder on the Orient Express?
DONNA: Ooo, yeah. One of your best.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Agatha Christie
Talking about: Donna accidentally gives Agatha an idea for a book.

 

AGATHA: But, I'm merely a writer.
ROBINA: But surely you can crack it. These events, they're exactly like one of your plots.
DONNA: That's what I've been saying. Agatha, that's got to mean something.
AGATHA: But what? I've no answers. None. I'm sorry, all of you. I'm truly sorry, but I've failed. If anyone can help us, then it's the Doctor, not me.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Agatha Christie, Robina Redmond
Talking about: Agatha’s talent as a writer.
Notes: Again, the Doctor is mentioned, but I think it still counts.

 


DONNA: Do you know what I think? Those books of yours, one day they could turn them into films. They could be talking pictures.
AGATHA: Talking pictures? Pictures that talk? What do you mean?
DONNA: Oh, blimey, I've done it again.
AGATHA: I appreciate you trying to be kind, but you're right. These murders are like my own creations. It's as though someone's mocking me, and I've had enough scorn for one lifetime.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Agatha Christie
Talking about: Agatha’s books.

 

DONNA: Agatha, people love your books. They really do. They're going to be reading them for years to come.
AGATHA: If only. Try as I might, it's hardly great literature. Now that's beyond me. I'm afraid my books will be forgotten, like ephemera. Hello, what's that? Those flowerbeds were perfectly neat earlier. now some of the stalks are bent over.
(Agatha picks up a small case.)
DONNA: There you go. Who'd ever notice that? You're brilliant.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Agatha Christie
Talking about: After some discussion of men, the conversation goes back to Agatha’s books.

 

DONNA: Come on, Agatha. What would Miss Marple do? She'd have overheard something vital by now, because the murderer thinks she's just a harmless old lady.
AGATHA: Clever idea. Miss Marple? Who writes those?
DONNA: Er, copyright Donna Noble. Add it to the list.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Agatha Christie
Talking about: Donna accidentally gives Agatha another idea for a book.

 

AGATHA: This is a crooked house. A house of secrets. To understand the solution, we must examine them all. Starting with you, Miss Redmond.
ROBINA: But I'm innocent, surely?
AGATHA: You've never met these people, and these people have never met you. I think the real Robina Redmond never left London. You're impersonating her.
ROBINA: How silly. What proof do you have?
AGATHA: You said you'd been to the toilet.
DONNA: Oh, I know this. If she was really posh, she'd say loo.
(Agatha picks up the locksmith's case.)
AGATHA: Earlier today, Miss Noble and I found this on the lawn, right beneath your bathroom window. You must have heard that Miss Noble was searching the bedrooms, so you panicked. You ran upstairs and disposed of the evidence.
ROBINA: I've never seen that thing before in my life.
CLEMENCY: What's inside it?
AGATHA: The tools of your trade, Miss Redmond. Or should I say, the Unicorn. You came to this house with one sole intention. To steal the Firestone.
ROBINA: (Cockney) Oh, all right then. It's a fair cop. Yes, I'm the bleeding Unicorn. Ever so nice to meet you, I don't think. I took my chance in the dark and nabbed it. Go on then, you knobs. Arrest me. Sling me in jail.
(She throws the necklace to the Doctor.)
DONNA: So, is she the murderer?
ROBINA: Don't be so thick. I might be a thief, but, well, I ain't no killer.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Agatha Christie, Robina Redmond/The Unicorn, Clemency Eddison
Talking about: Who dun it.

 



 

EPISODE 8, SERIES 4: SILENCE IN THE LIBRARY
Written by Steven Moffat

RIVER: Pop your helmets, everyone. We've got breathers.
ANITA: How do you know they're not androids?
RIVER: Because I've dated androids. They're rubbish.

More than one woman: River Song, Anita
Talking about: Androids.

 

EVANGELISTA: Excuse me, can I help?
ANITA: No, we're fine.
EVANGELISTA: I could just you know, hold things. 

More than one woman: Evangelista, Anita
Talking about: Evangelista tries to be useful.

 

DONNA: Oh, thanks, for er, you know, offering to help with the lights.
EVANGELISTA: They don't want me. They think I'm stupid, because I'm pretty.
DONNA: Course they don't. Nobody thinks that.
EVANGELISTA: No, they're right though. I'm a moron, me. My dad said I have the IQ of plankton, and I was pleased.
DONNA: See, that's funny.
EVANGELISTA: No, no, I really was pleased. Is that funny?
DONNA: No, no.

More than one woman: Evangelista, Donna Noble
Talking about: Evangelista’s awful self-esteem.

 

RIVER: This is her last moment. No, we can't. A little respect, thank you.
EVANGELISTA: Sorry, where am I? Excuse me?
DONNA: But that's Miss Evangelista.
RIVER: It's a data ghost. She'll be gone in a moment. Miss Evangelista, you're fine. Just relax. We'll be with you presently.
DONNA: What's a data ghost?

More than one woman: Donna Noble, River Song, Evangelista
Talking about: Data ghosts, and how Evangelista has just become one.

 

EVANGELISTA: Is she there? The nice woman.
RIVER: Yes, she's here. Hang on. Go ahead. She can hear you.
EVANGELISTA: Hello? Are you there?

More than one woman: River Song, Evangelista
Talking about: The nice woman, Donna.

 

EVANGELISTA: Hello? Is that the nice woman?
DONNA: Yeah. Hello. Yeah, I'm, I'm, I'm here. You okay?
EVANGELISTA: What I said before, about being stupid. Don't tell the others, they'll only laugh.
DONNA: Course I won't. Course I won't tell them.
EVANGELISTA: Don't tell the others, they'll only laugh.
DONNA: I won't tell them. I said I won't.
EVANGELISTA: Don't tell the others, they'll only laugh.
DONNA: I'm not going to tell them.
(The green light starts blinking.)
EVANGELISTA: Don't tell the others, they'll only laugh.
RIVER: She's looping now. The pattern's degrading.
EVANGELISTA: I can't think. I don't know, I, I, I, I scream. Ice cream. Ice cream. Ice cream. Ice cream.
RIVER: Does anybody mind if I?
EVANGELISTA: Ice cream. Ice cream.
(River turns off the comm. unit.)
DONNA: That was, that was horrible. That was the most horrible thing I've ever seen.
RIVER: No. It's just a freak of technology. But whatever did this to her, whatever killed her, I'd like a word with that.

More than one woman: River Song, Evangelista, Donna Noble
Talking about: Evangelista’s last request, the sheer horror of being a data ghost

 

 

 

EPISODE 9, SERIES 4: FOREST OF THE DEAD
Written by Steven Moffat

ANITA: Professor?
RIVER: Just a moment.
ANITA: It's important. I have two shadows.
(Oh no.)
RIVER: Okay. Helmets on, everyone. Anita, I'll get yours.
ANITA: It didn't do Proper Dave any good.
RIVER: Just keep it together, okay?
ANITA: Keeping it together. I'm only crying. I'm about to die. It's not an overreaction.

More than one woman: River Song, Anita
Talking about: Anita’s impeding doom.

 

ELLA: Mummy, I made you!
(Donna's daughter, Ella, has made a plasticine figure.)
DONNA: Oh, that's nice, Ella. Where's the face?
ELLA: I don't know.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Ella
Talking about: Ella’s creepy plasticine figure.


(Donna sits next to the woman.)
DONNA: I got your note last night. The world is wrong. What's that mean?
EVANGELISTA: No, you didn't.
DONNA: I'm sorry, what?
EVANGELISTA: You didn't get my note last night. You got it a few seconds ago. Having decided to come, you suddenly found yourself arriving. That is how time progresses here, in the manner of a dream. You've suspected that before, haven't you, Donna Noble?
DONNA: How do you know me?
EVANGELISTA: We met before, in the library. You were kind to me. I hope now to return that kindness.
DONNA: Your voice. I recognise it.
EVANGELISTA: Yes, you do. I am what is left of Miss Evangelista.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Evangelista
Talking about: The world being wrong, who Evangelista is.

 

EVANGELISTA: I suggested we meet here because a playground is the easiest place to see it. To see the lie.
DONNA: What lie?
EVANGELISTA: The children. Look at the children.
DONNA: Why do you wear that veil? If I had a face like yours, I wouldn't hide it.
EVANGELISTA: You remember my face, then? The memories are all still there. The library, the Doctor, me. You've just been programmed not to look.
DONNA: Sorry, but you're dead.
EVANGELISTA: In a way, we're all dead here, Donna. We are the dead of the library.
DONNA: Well, what about the children? The children aren't dead. My children aren't dead.
EVANGELISTA: Your children were never alive.
DONNA: Don't you say that. Don't you dare say that about my children!
EVANGELISTA: Look at your children. Look at all of them, really look.
(All the children in the playground are Ella and Joshua, repeated over and over.)
EVANGELISTA: They're not real. Do you see it now? They're all the same. All the children of this world, the same boy and the same girl, over and over again.
DONNA: Stop it. Just stop it. Why are you doing this? Why are you wearing that veil?
(Donna pulls off Evangelista's veil. Her face is distorted, skewed and stretched. Donna and the girl scream.)

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Evangelista
Talking about: The children not being real.

DONNA: What happened to your face?
EVANGELISTA: Transcription errors. Destroyed my face, did wonders for my intellect. I'm a very poor copy of myself.
DONNA [on TV]: Where are we? Why are the children all the same?
EVANGELISTA [on TV]: The same pattern over and over. It saves an awful lot of space.
DONNA [on TV]: Space?
EVANGELISTA [on TV]: Cyberspace.
CAL: No, don't tell! You mustn't tell!

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Evangelista, CAL
Talking about: The poorly saved patterns.

 

EVANGELISTA: Your physical self is stored in the library as an energy signature. It can be actualised again whenever you or the library requires.
DONNA: The library? If my face ends up on one of those statues-
EVANGELISTA: You remember the statues?
DONNA: Wait, no, just hang on. So this isn't the real me? This isn't my real body? But I've been dieting.
EVANGELISTA: What you see around you, this entire world
EVANGELISTA [on TV]: Is nothing more than virtual reality.
DONNA: So why do you look like that?
EVANGELISTA: I had no choice. You teleported. You're a perfect reproduction. I was just a data ghost caught in the Wi-Fi and automatically uploaded.
DONNA: And it made you clever?
EVANGELISTA: We're only strings of numbers in here. I think a decimal point may have shifted in my IQ. But my face has been the bigger advantage. I have the two qualities you require to see absolute truth. I am brilliant and unloved.
DONNA: If this is all a dream, whose dream is it?
EVANGELISTA: It's hard to see everything in the data core, even for me, but there is a word. Just one word. Cal.
(The girl is crying. She changes channels.)
(Ella has fallen from a swing.)
ELLA: Mummy, my knee!
DONNA: Oh! Oh, look at that knee. Oh, look at that silly old knee!
EVANGELISTA: She's not real. They're fictions. I'm sorry, but now that you understand that, you won't be able to keep a hold. They are sustained only by your belief.
DONNA: You don't know. You don't have children.
EVANGELISTA: Neither do you.
EVANGELISTA [on TV]: Donna, for your own sake, let them go!
CAL: Stop it! You'll spoil everything! I hate you! You're going to ruin everything! Stop it!

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Evangelista, CAL, Ella
Talking about: The virtual world that they’re now stuck in.

More than one woman: The Hostess, Sky
Talking about: Complimentary items.

SKY: She's driving me mad.
VAL: Just make her stop!
SKY: Just make her stop!
(People start talking over each other, with Sky still repeating their words.)
VAL: Stop her staring at me. Shut her up.
SKY: Stop her staring at me. Shut her up.
HOSTESS: It's got to be a trick.
SKY: It's got to be a trick.
DEE DEE: That's impossible.
SKY: That's impossible.

More than one woman: Dee Dee, Sky, Val, The Hostess
Talking about: What Sky is doing.
Notes: Midnight is so hard to analyse due to, well, the nature of the episode – everyone’s talking and repeating and it’s so scary but SO HARD to work out exactly who’s talking to who. Bah. That being said, I think this bit does technically pass the Bechdel Test.

 

 

 

EPISODE 11, SERIES 4: TURN LEFT
Written by Russell T Davies


SYLVIA: Jival, he's called. Jival Chowdry? He runs that little photocopy business and he needs a secretary.
DONNA: I've got a job.
SYLVIA: As a temp. This is permanent, it's twenty thousand a year, Donna.
DONNA: HC Clements is in the City. It's nice, it's posh, so stop it.
[Fortune teller's tent]
FORTUNE TELLER: Your life could have gone one way or the other. What made you decide?
DONNA: I just did.
(Our point of view is something small sneaking up behind Donna.)
FORTUNE TELLER: But when was the moment? When did you choose?
[Car]
(Donna is at a junction, waiting to turn onto the main road.)
SYLVIA: It won't take long. Just turn right. We'll pop in and see Mister Chowdry, so Suzette can introduce you.
DONNA: I'm going left. If you don't like it, get out and walk.
SYLVIA: If you turn right, you'll have a career, not just filling in.
DONNA: You think I'm so useless.
SYLVIA: Oh, I know why you want a job at HC Clements, lady. Because you think you'll meet a man with lots of money and your whole life will change. Well let me tell you, sweetheart. City executives don't need temps, except for practice.
DONNA: Yeah. Well, they haven't met me.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Sylvia Noble (with the unnamed Fortune Teller cutting in too)
Talking about: Donna’s choice between two jobs.
Notes: Obviously lots of men are mentioned during this conversation, but only really as character dressing for Donna?

 

DONNA: Come on, then, get out the way. Get out the way! Here we are. Feed at the trough.
VEENA: Mooky says let's go to the Boardwalk. It's two for the price of one.
DONNA: Christmas Eve? It'll be heaving.
MOOKY: Well, exactly. Get in and grab them.
VEENA: Hey, that's the second round of drinks you've bought. It was my turn.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Veena, Mooky
Talking about: Where to get their drinks.

 

DONNA: What's wrong? What is it?
ALICE: Sorry?
DONNA: Did someone spill a drink on me?
ALICE: Why?
DONNA: Why do you keep looking at my shoulder? What's wrong?
ALICE: I don't know.
DONNA: Oh, don't tell me you're getting all spooky again. It was bad enough when you saw the ghost of Earl Mountbatten at the boat show. What are you looking at? What is it?
ALICE: It's like, it's like there's something I can't see.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Alice
Talking about: What’s on Donna’s back.

 

MOOKY: What the hell is that?
VEENA: Ken Livingstone, that's what! Spending our money on decorations! I mean, how much did that cost?
(The Racnoss web ship is sailing across the sky.)
MOOKY: Don't be so stupid. It's flying! It's really flying!
(The people run around the corner to watch it.)
DONNA: That's not a star. That's a web. It's heading east. Middle of the City.
(Energy lances from the web star and everyone starts screaming and running, except Donna and Alice.)
DONNA: Alice! There's a great big web star thing shooting at people, and you're looking at me?
ALICE: There is something on your back.
(Alice runs away. Donna walks forward.)
VEENA: Donna? Donna, where are you going? You'll get yourself killed! Donna!

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Mooky, Veena, Alice
Talking about: The current unusual goings-on.

 

ROSE: What's your name?
DONNA: Donna. And you?
ROSE: Oh, I was just passing by. I shouldn't even be here. This is wrong. It's wrong. This is so wrong. Sorry, what was it? Donna what?
DONNA: Why do you keep looking at my back?
ROSE: I'm not.
DONNA: Yes, you are. You keep looking behind me. You're doing it now. What is it? What's there? Did someone put something on my back?
(Donna tries to look at her own back, and Rose disappears.)

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Rose Tyler
Talking about: What’s on Donna’s back.

 

SYLVIA: This stapler says Bea.
DONNA: I can't believe how well you're taking it, me getting sacked. Thought you'd hit the roof.
SYLVIA: I'm just tired, Donna, what with your father and everything. To be honest, I've given up on you.
NEWS 24 [on TV]: This further report just in from Oliver Morgenstern.
MORGENSTERN [on TV]: There was this woman who took control. Said she knew what to do, said she could stop the MRI or something. Sarah Jane, her name was. Sarah Jane Smith.
NEWS 24 [on TV]: Sarah Jane Smith was a freelance investigative journalist, formerly of Metropolitan Magazine.
Her body was recovered from the hospital late this afternoon. Miss Smith had a son called Luke, but early reports that Luke-
DONNA: What's for tea?
SYLVIA: I've got nothing in.
DONNA: I'll get chips. Last of my wages. Fish and chips, yeah?

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Sylvia Noble
Talking about: Donna losing her job, what’s for tea
Notes: A conversation interrupted by Morgenstern (Martha’s co-worker) on TV, but I think it still counts.

 

(Night. Donna is walking slowly when there is a blinding flash in a nearby jennel and Rose runs out.)
DONNA: Blimey! Are you all right? What was that, fireworks or-
ROSE: I don't know. I was just walking along. That's weird.
DONNA: You're the one. Christmas Eve. I met you in town.
ROSE: Donna? Isn't it?
DONNA: What was your name?
ROSE: How're you doing? You're looking good. How's things, what have you been up to?
DONNA: You're doing it again.
ROSE: What?
DONNA: Looking behind me. People keep on doing that, looking at my back.
ROSE: What sort of people?
DONNA: People in the street. Strangers. I just catch them sometimes, staring at me. Like they're looking at something. And then I get home, and I look, and there's nothing there. See? Look, now I'm doing it!
ROSE: What are you doing for Christmas?
DONNA: What am I what?
ROSE: Next Christmas. Any plans?
DONNA: I don't know. That's ages away. Nothing much, I suppose. Why?
ROSE: Just, I think you should get out, you and your family. Don't stay in London. Just leave the city.
DONNA: What for?
ROSE: Nice hotel Christmas break?
DONNA; Can't afford it.
ROSE: Well, no, you got that raffle ticket.
DONNA: How do you know about that?
ROSE: First prize, luxury weekend break. Use it, Donna Noble.
DONNA: Why won't you tell me your name? I think you should leave me alone.
(Donna walks on. There is a flash of light behind her.)

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Rose Tyler
Talking about: Rose gets Donna to leave the city for Christmas.

SYLVIA: Have you seen this?
NEWS 24 [on TV]: We will now return to the BBC news studio.
DONNA: Because I thought, nice early breakfast and then we'll go for a walk. People always say that at Christmas. Oh, we all went for a walk. I've always wanted to do that. So, walk first, presents later, yeah?
SYLVIA: Donna, come and see.
SPANISH MAID: Tienes algo en tu espalda.
NEWS 24 [on TV]: Satellite.
DONNA: What?
SYLVIA: Donna, look at the telly.
SPANISH MAID: Tienes algo en tu espalda.
NEWS 24 [on TV]: Replica of the RMS Titanic.
DONNA: What does that mean? I don't know what you're saying.
SYLVIA: Donna, look at the TV!
SPANISH MAID: Tienes algo en tu espalda!
(The claws are visible by Donna's shoulders, but the bathroom mirror reveals nothing. The maid flees. )
SYLVIA: For God's sake, Donna. Don't just stand there, come and look.
NEWS 24 [on TV]: Not sure how this is possible, but this footage is live and genuine. The object is falling on Central London. I repeat, this is not a hoax. A replica of the Titanic is falling out of the sky, and it's heading for Buckingham Palace. We're getting this footage from the Guinevere range of satellites.
DONNA: Is that a film or something?
NEWS 24 [on TV]: The Royal Air Force has declared an emerg-
(The Titanic crashes into Buckingham Palace and the picture is lost. A shockwave rattles the hotel.)
SYLVIA: It's gone dead. All of them.
DONNA: No, but, the Titanic? Well, don't be daft. Is that like a sequel?

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Sylvia Noble, an unnamed Spanish maid (and also News 24 on the TV)
Talking about: The Titanic-shaped missile about to hit London.


SYLVIA: That's everyone. Every single person we know. The whole city.
DONNA: Can't be.
SYLVIA: But it is. It's gone. London's gone.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Sylvia Noble
Talking about: The terrible thing that’s just happened.


SYLVIA: Mary McGinty. Do you remember her?
DONNA: Who was she?
SYLVIA: Worked in the newsagent on Sunday. Little woman. Black hair.
DONNA: Never really spoke to her.
SYLVIA: She'll be dead. Every day I think of someone else. All dead.
DONNA: Maybe she went away for Christmas.
SYLVIA: Maybe.
DONNA: I'll go out tomorrow. I'll walk into town. There's got to be work. Everyone needs secretaries. Soon as I'm earning, we'll get a proper place. Just you wait, Mum.
SYLVIA: What if it never gets better?
DONNA: Course it will.
SYLVIA: Even the bees are disappearing. You don't see bumble bees anymore.
DONNA: They'll sort us out. The emergency government. They'll do something.
SYLVIA: What if they don't?
DONNA: Then we'll complain.
SYLVIA: Who's going to listen to us? Refugees. We haven't even got a vote. We're just no one, Donna. We don't exist.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Sylvia Noble
Talking about: The now-dead people they knew, the horrible situation they’re in.

 

DONNA: Hello.
ROSE: Hi.
(Cut to them sitting on a bench in the park)
ROSE: It's the ATMOS devices. We're lucky, it's not so bad here. Britain hasn't got that much petrol. But all over Europe, China, South Africa, they're getting choked by gas.
DONNA: Can't anyone stop it?
ROSE: Yeah, they're trying right now, this little band of fighters, on board the Sontaran ship. Any second now.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Rose Tyler
Talking about: The ATMOS devices.

 

ROSE: It's coming, Donna. It's coming from across the stars and nothing can stop it.
DONNA: What is?
ROSE: The darkness.
DONNA: Well, what do you keep telling me for? What am I supposed to do? I'm nothing special. I mean, I'm, I'm not. I'm nothing special. I'm a temp. I'm not even that. I'm nothing.
ROSE: Donna Noble, you're the most important woman in the whole of creation.
DONNA: Oh, don't. Just don't. I'm tired. I'm so tired.
ROSE: I need you to come with me.
DONNA: Yeah. Well, blonde hair might work on the men, but you ain't shifting me, lady.
ROSE: That's more like it.
DONNA: I've got plenty more.
ROSE: Then you'll come with me, only when you want to.
DONNA: You'll have a long wait, then.
ROSE: Not really. Just three weeks. Tell me, does your grandfather still own that telescope?
DONNA: He never lets go of it.
ROSE: Three weeks time. But you've got to be certain. Because when you come with me, Donna, sorry, so sorry, but you're going to die.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Rose Tyler
Talking about: The darkness that’s coming, Donna Noble being so important.

 

DONNA: I asked about jobs with the army.
(SYLVIA says nothing, barely acknowledges she’s there, just stares into space)
DONNA: They said I wasn't qualified. You were right. You said I should have worked harder at school. I suppose I've always been a disappointment.
SYLVIA: …Yeah.

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Sylvia Noble
Talking about: Donna being a disappointment.
Notes: Is this technically more than two lines? I hope this one counts, because it’s such a crushing illustration of the relationship between Donna and her mother. And of Sylvia’s character, how in the worst situation of her life she just retreats into herself and will barely acknowledge or spare a moment’s comfort for her own daughter.

 

MAGAMBO: Ma'am.
ROSE: I've told you, don't salute.
MAGAMBO: Well, if you're not going to tell us your name.
(Rose goes to a control console.)
DONNA: What, you don't know either?
ROSE: I've crossed too many different realities. Trust me, the wrong word in the wrong place can change an entire causal nexus.
MAGAMBO: She talks like that. A lot. And you must be Miss Noble.
DONNA: Donna.
MAGAMBO: Captain Erisa Magambo. Thank you for this.
DONNA: I don't even know what I'm doing.
ROSE: Is it awake?
MAGAMBO: Seems to be quiet today. Ticking over. Like it's waiting.
(It is the TARDIS, hooked up to some equipment by connectors on the outside.)
ROSE: Do you want to see it?
DONNA: What's a police box?
ROSE: They salvaged it from underneath the Thames. Just go inside.
DONNA: What for?
ROSE: Just go in.
(Donna enters the Tardis.)
DONNA [OC]: No way!
(Donna comes back out, checks the outside, then goes back inside, then finally out again.)
ROSE: What do you think?
DONNA: Can I have a coffee?

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Rose Tyler, Captain Erisa Magambo
Talking about: Who Rose is, the TARDIS.

 

ROSE: We don't know how the Tardis works, but we've managed to scrape off the surface technology, enough to show you the creature.
DONNA: It's a creature?
ROSE: Just stand here.
MAGAMBO: Out of the circle, please.
ROSE: Yes, ma'am.
(Rose leaves Donna in the middle of the mirrors.)
DONNA: Can't you stay with me?
MAGAMBO: Ready. And activate.
(The lights come on.)
ROSE: Open your eyes, Donna.
DONNA: Is it there?
ROSE: Open your eyes. Look at it.
DONNA: I can't.
ROSE: It's part of you, Donna. Look.
(A giant stag horn beetle is hanging on Donna's back like a rucksack.)
ROSE: It's okay, it's okay, it's okay. Calm down, Donna. Donna? Donna! Okay.
DONNA: What is it?
ROSE: We don't know.
DONNA: Oh, thanks.
ROSE: It feeds off time, by changing time. By making someone's life take a different turn, like er, meetings never made, children never born, a life never loved. But with you, it's-
DONNA: But I never did anything important.
ROSE: Yeah, you did. One day that thing made you turn right instead of left.
DONNA: When was that?
ROSE: Oh, you wouldn't remember. It was the most ordinary day in the world. But by turning right, you never met the Doctor, and the whole world just changed around you.
DONNA: Can you get rid of it?
ROSE: No, I can't even touch it. It seems to be in a state of flux.
DONNA: What does that mean?
ROSE: I don't know. It's the sort of thing the Doctor would say.
DONNA: You liar! You told me I was special. But it's not me, it's this thing. I'm just a host!
ROSE: No, there's more than that. The readings are strange. It's, it's like reality's just bending round you.
DONNA: Because of this thing!
ROSE: No, no! We're getting separate readings from you. And they've always been there, since the day you were born.
MAGAMBO: This is not relevant to the mission.
ROSE: I thought it was just the Doctor we needed, but it's the both of you. The Doctor and Donna Noble, together, to stop the stars from going out.
DONNA: Why? What can I do? Turn it off, please.
ROSE: Captain.
MAGAMBO: Power down.
(Rose goes to Donna.)
DONNA: It's still there, though. What can I do to get rid of it?
ROSE: You're going to travel in time.
(Donna is wearing a jacket with lots of wires all over it.)
ROSE: The Tardis has tracked down the moment of intervention. Monday the twenty fifth, one minute past ten in the morning. Your car was on Little Sutton Street leading to the Ealing Road, but you turned right heading towards Griffin's Parade. You need to turn left. That's the most important thing. You've got to go back, turn left. Have you got that, Donna? One minute past ten, make yourself turn left, heading for the Chiswick Highroad.
MAGAMBO: Keep the jacket on at all times. It's insulation against temporal feedback. This will correspond to local time wherever you land.
(A scientist puts a high tech watch on Donna's wrist. Captain Magambo holds out a glass of water.)
MAGAMBO: This is to combat dehydration. 
(Donna is escorted back to the mirrors.)
ROSE: This is where we leave you.
DONNA: I don't want to see that thing on my back.
ROSE: No, the mirrors are just incidental. They bounce chronon energy back into the centre which we control and decide the destination.
DONNA: It's a time machine.
ROSE: It's a time machine.
MAGAMBO: If you could?
(Donna takes her place in the middle.)
MAGAMBO: Powering up.
DONNA: How do you know it's going to work?
ROSE: Hmm? Oh yeah, we, we don't. We're just, we're just guessing.
DONNA: Oh, brilliant.
ROSE: Just remember, when you get to the junction, change the car's direction by one minute past ten.
DONNA: How do I do that?
ROSE: It's up to you.
DONNA: Well, I just have to run up to myself and have a good argument.
ROSE: I'd like to see that!
MAGAMBO: Activate lodestone.
ROSE: Good luck.
DONNA: I'm ready.
ROSE: One minute past ten.
DONNA: Because I understand now. You said I was going to die, but you mean this whole world is going to blink out of existence. But that's not dying, because a better world takes its place. The Doctor's world. And I'm still alive. That's right, isn't it? I don't die. If I change things, I don't die. That's that's right, isn't it?
ROSE: I'm sorry.
DONNA: But I can't die. I've got a future. With the Doctor. You told me!
MAGAMBO: Activate!
(Sparks fly along the power cables running to the Tardis, and Donna dematerialises.)

More than one woman: Donna Noble, Rose Tyler, Captain Erisa Magambo
Talking about: The time beetle, what’s going to happen to Donna.

AMY: What's that?
MANDY: There's a hole. We have to go back.
AMY: A what? A hole?
(Right outside Magpie Electricals is a striped workman's hut with yellow flashing lights and a keep out sign.)
MANDY: Are you stupid? There's a hole in the road. We can't go that way. There's a travel pipe down by the airlocks, if you've got stamps. What are you doing?
AMY: Oh, don't mind me. Never could resist a keep out sign. What's through there? What's so scary about a hole? Something under the road?
(The workman's hut is padlocked.)
MANDY: Nobody knows. We're not supposed to talk about it.
AMY: About what?
MANDY: Below.
AMY: And because you're not supposed to, you don't? Watch and learn.
(Amy picks the lock with a hairpin, watched by a Smiler.)
MANDY: You sound Scottish.
AMY: I am Scottish. What's wrong with that? Scotland's got to be here somewhere.
MANDY: No. They wanted their own ship.
AMY: Hmm. Good for them. Nothing changes.
MANDY: So, how did you get here?

More than one woman:
Amy Pond, Mandy
Talking about: What lurks below, and also Scotland.

(River injects Amy.)

Written by Steven Moffat

CHRISTINE: It's a lovely painting, Amelia. And what are all these?
AMELIA: Stars.
SHARON: Oh, Amelia.
CHRISTINE: Tell you what, shall we go outside?
[Outside the house]
CHRISTINE: What do you see, Amelia?
AMELIA: The moon.
CHRISTINE: And what else?
AMELIA: Just the dark.
CHRISTINE: But no stars. If there were stars up there, we'd be able to see them, wouldn't we? Amelia, look at me. You know this is all just a story, don't you? You know there's no such thing as stars.
(Amy listens to the adult voices downstairs.)
CHRISTINE [OC]: But there's bound to be a bit of her that feels alone. Amelia's a really good person. It's quite common, actually. Throughout history, people have talked about seeing stars in the sky. God knows where it comes from.
SHARON [OC]: I just don't want her growing up and joining one of those Star Cults. I don't trust that Richard Dawkins.

More than one woman:
young Amy Pond, Christine, Sharon
Talking about: The stars that Amy believes in.

 

AMELIA: Come on, Aunt Sharon.
SHARON: Oh, look at that. That's good, isn't it?
AMELIA: Not that. This way.
SHARON; But we're not looking at anything.
AMELIA: This way!
SHARON: Amelia!
(Amelia stops to look at the exhibit of petrified Daleks, then pushes through the people standing looking at the Pandorica. Someone snatches her Original Cola drink from her. Suddenly there is a post-it note on the Pandorica, saying Stick around, Pond.)
SHARON [OC]: Amelia!
(Amelia runs to hide.)
SHARON: Amelia? Amelia?

More than one woman: young Amy Pond, Sharon
Talking about: The museum exhibits.

 

AMY: Where am I? Hang on. National Museum, right? I was here once when I was a little-
(She looks at her younger self)
AMY: Yeah, complicated. Let's see (she lifts up Amelia's hair) it's what, 1996?
AMELIA: Who are you?
AMY: It's a long story. Oh. A very long story.

More than one woman: young Amy Pond, Amy Pond
Talking about: Amy meets her younger self.

 

AMY: What, and Big Bang Two is the bang that brings us back? Is that what you mean?
RIVER: Oh.
AMY: What?
RIVER: The Tardis is still burning. It's exploding at every point in history. If you threw the Pandorica into the explosion, right into the heart of the fire.
AMY: Then what?
RIVER: Then let there be light. The light from the Pandorica would explode everywhere at once, just like he said.
AMY: That would work? That would bring everything back?
RIVER: A restoration field powered by an exploding Tardis, happening at every moment in history. Oh, that's brilliant. It might even work.

More than one woman: River Song, Amy Pond
Talking about: The plan to restart the universe.

 

TABETHA: Morning!
AMY: You're my mum. Oh, my God. You're my mum.
TABETHA: Well, of course I'm your mum. What's the matter with you? And this is your breakfast, which your father made, so feel free to tip it out of the window if it's an atrocity. Downstairs, ten minutes? Big day!

More than one woman: Tabetha Pond, Amy Pond

JOY: Back from what, honey?
AMY: That.

More than one woman:
Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint
Talking about: The matter that has arisen in the dining room.
Notes: Okay, is this technically more than three lines?

 

LORNA: Sorry. I shouldn't be here. I'm meant to be at the thing. I brought you something. Your child's name in the language of my people. It's a prayer leaf and we believe, if you keep this with you, your child will always come home to you.

EPISODE 9, SERIES 6: NIGHT TERRORS
Written by Mark Gatiss

Night Terrors is a very awkward one, because while the conversation between Amy and Julie does go on for more than three lines, those lines are edited together with Rory and the Doctor talking to other people on the estate.

JULIE: Can I help you?
AMY: Hi. Er, yeah. No, sorry. I was just wondering if you've had any bother around here?
[RORY: Is everything okay?
MRS ROSSITER: The bins. I can't be expected to get down all them stairs. I need new knees. ]

JULIE: Bother? What do you mean?
AMY: Well, I mean-

More than one woman: Amy Pond, Julie
Talking about: Bother on the estate.

I think it’s a pass, albeit a very minor one, since it is an uninterrupted conversation just not one we see as such, but what do you think?

 

 

 

 

EPISODE 10, SERIES 6: THE GIRL WHO WAITED
Written by Tom Macrae

OLDER AMY [in glass]: The me version of you. I refuse to help them. I won't let them save myself.
AMY: Why?
OLDER AMY: If you escape, then I was never trapped here. The last thirty six years of my life rewrites, and I cease to exist. That's why old me refused to help then. That's why I'm refusing to help now. And that's why you'll refuse to help when it's your turn. And nothing you can say will change that.

More than one woman: Madge Arwell, Billis

MADGE: I can't trust them.
BILLIS: I can't drive the platform, ma'am.
MADGE: It looks a little like a plane. My husband flies a plane. He took me up once.

NEFERTITI: Perhaps they found another world, left the ship.
AMY: Why are the dinosaurs still on board, and why is the ship coming back to Earth? It doesn't make sense.

MERRY: And now I have to sing a song in front of everyone. A special song. I have to sing it to a god. And I'm really scared.
CLARA: Everyone's scared when they're little. I used to be terrified of getting lost. Used to have nightmares about it. And then I got lost. Blackpool beach, Bank holiday Monday, about ten billion people. I was about six. My worst nightmare come true.
MERRY: What happened?
CLARA: The world ended. My heart broke. And then my mum found me. We had fish and chips, and she drove me home and she tucked me up and she told me a story.
ELLIE [memory]: It doesn't matter where you are, in the jungle or the desert or on the moon. However lost you may feel, you'll never really be lost. Not really. Because I will always be here, and I will always come and find you. Every single time. Every single time.
MERRY: And you were never scared again?
CLARA: Oh, I was scared lots of times, but never of being lost. So, this special song. What are you scared of, exactly?
MERRY: Getting it wrong. Making Grandfather angry.

CLARA: If I step in there, what happens?
RIVER: The time winds will tear you into a million pieces. A million versions of you, living and dying all over time and space, like echoes.

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, River Song
Talking about: What the time winds will do to Clara.

 

 

 

 

50th ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL: THE DAY OF THE DOCTOR
Written by Steven Moffat

KATE: I'm acting on instructions direct from the throne. Sealed orders from her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth the First.
CLARA: The Queen? The First? Sorry, Elizabeth the First?
KATE: Her credentials are inside.

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Kate Stewart
Talking about: Elizabeth the First.

 

CLARA: Lock and key? Bit basic, isn't it?
KATE: Can't afford electronic security down here. Got to keep the Doctor out. The whole of the Tower is Tardis-proofed. He really wouldn't approve of the collection.
CLARA: But you let me in.
KATE: You have a top level security rating from your last visit.
CLARA: Sorry, my what?
KATE: Apologies. We have to screen all his known associates. We can't have information about the Doctor and the Tardis falling into the wrong hands. The consequences could be disastrous.
CLARA: What is that?
KATE: Time travel. A vortex manipulator bequeathed to the UNIT archive by Captain Jack Harkness on the occasion of his death. Well, one of them. No one can know we have this, not even our allies.
CLARA: Why not?
KATE: Think about it. Americans with the ability to rewrite history? You've seen their movies.

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Kate Stewart
Talking about: The secrets of the Tower.
Notes: Does mention men, but the conversation’s not about them.

 

CLARA: Er, Kate? Should they be here? Why have they followed us?
ZYGON-KATE: Oh, they've probably just finished disposing of the humans a bit early.
CLARA: The humans?
ZYGON-KATE: Dear me. I really do get into character, don't I?
(Kate spits some venom at Clara, then transforms into a Zygon.)

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Zygon Kate Stewart
Talking about: The secrets of the Tower.
Notes: I’m still not sure if Zygons in a female ‘copy’ count? Can someone who knows more about Zygons weigh in?

 

OSGOOD: Kate? Oh goodness, you're not actually dead. Oh, that's tremendous news. Those creatures, they turn themselves into copies. And they need to keep the original alive, refresh the image so to speak.
KATE: Where, where did they go?
OSGOOD: I don't know. Oh, hang on, yes, I do. The Tower.
KATE: If those creatures have got access to the Black Archive, we may just have lost control of the planet.

More than one woman: Osgood, Kate Stewart
Talking about: The Zygon threat.

 

ELIZABETH: The Zygons lost their own world. It burnt in the first days of the Time War. A new home is required.
CLARA: So they want this one.
ELIZABETH: Not yet. It's far too primitive. Zygons are used to a certain level of comfort.

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Elizabeth I
Talking about: The Zygons.

 

(The Zygon transforms into Kate, and sits down opposite her at the table.)
KATE: You'll realise there are protocols protecting this place. Osgood?
OSGOOD: In the event of any alien incursion, the contents of this room are deemed so dangerous, it will self-destruct in-
KATE: Five minutes.
(The alarm sounds and the countdown starts.)
KATE: There's a nuclear warhead twenty feet beneath us. Are you sitting comfortably?
ZYGON-KATE: You would destroy London?
KATE: To save the world, yes, I would.
ZYGON-KATE: You're bluffing.
KATE: You really think so?

More than one woman: Osgood, Kate Stewart, Zygon Kate Stewart
Talking about: The impeding destruction of the whole city.

 

ZYGON-KATE: One word from you would cancel the countdown.
KATE: Quite so.
ZYGON-KATE: It's keyed to your voiceprint.
KATE: And mine alone.
ZYGON-KATE: Cancel the detonation!
KATE: Countermanded.
ZYGON-KATE: Cancel the detonation.
KATE: Countermanded.
ZYGON-KATE: We only have to agree to live.
KATE: Sadly, we can only agree to die.

More than one woman: Kate Stewart, Zygon Kate Stewart
Talking about: Canceling the detonation. Or not.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EPISODE 1 SERIES 8: DEEP BREATH
Written by Steven Moffat

JENNY: Big fella, isn't he?
VASTRA: Dinosaurs were mostly this size. I do believe it's a she.
JENNY: No, they weren't, I've seen fossils.
VASTRA: I was there.

More than one woman: Jenny Flint, Madame Vastra
Talking about: Dinosaurs!

 

JENNY: Is it choking?
VASTRA: There seems to be something lodged in its throat.
JENNY: How could it time travel?
VASTRA: I don't know. Perhaps it was something it ate.

More than one woman: Jenny Flint, Madame Vastra
Talking about: The mysterious dinosaur.

 

CLARA: It's just-
JENNY: What?
CLARA: Nothing. If. If Vastra changed, if she was different, if she wasn't the person that you liked?
VASTRA: I don't like her, ma'am. I love her. And as to different? Well, she's a lizard.

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Jenny Flint
Talking about: Vastra and Jenny’s relationship.

 

VASTRA: And then?
CLARA: Why are you wearing your veil?
VASTRA: And then?
CLARA: And then we got swallowed by a big dinosaur. You probably noticed.
JENNY: How did it happen?
CLARA: I don't know. I don't know.

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint
Talking about: How Clara ended up where she did.

 

VASTRA: Jenny and I are married. Yet for appearance's sake, we maintain a pretence, in public, that she is my maid.
JENNY: Doesn't exactly explain why I'm pouring tea in private.
VASTRA: Hush now.
JENNY: Good pretence, isn't it?
VASTRA: I wear a veil to keep from view what many are pleased to call my disfigurement. I do not wear it as a courtesy to such people, but as a judgment on the quality of their hearts.
CLARA: Are you judging me?

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint
Talking about: Vastra’s veil

 

CLARA: I am not sure who you think you're talking to right now, Madam Vastra, but I have never had the slightest interest in pretty young men. And for the record, if there ever was anybody who could flirt with a mountain range, she's probably standing in front of you right now. Just because my pretty face has turned your head, do not assume that I am so easily distracted.
(Vastra is no longer wearing her veil. Jenny applauds.)
JENNY: Whoo. Whoo. Sorry.
VASTRA: Well, goodness me. The lake is ruffled at last. I often wondered what you'd be like when you lost your temper.
JENNY: Oi. Married.

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint
Talking about: Vastra pushes Clara into losing her temper. Jenny is pleased.

 

VASTRA: Hmm. Spontaneous combustion.
JENNY: Is that like love at first sight?
VASTRA: Hmm. A little. It is the theory that human beings can, with little or no inducement, simply explode.
JENNY: You don't need to flirt with me. We're already married.
VASTRA: It's scientific nonsense, of course.
JENNY: Marriage?
VASTRA: Hush. There have been nine reported incidents of people apparently exploding in the last month.
JENNY: And you think they weren't spontaneous.
VASTRA: I think whoever killed the dinosaur had at least nine previous victims. All of these perished in the same spectacular fashion.
(Vastra turns the easel to reveal newspaper cuttings, a map of London, and lines linking them up.)
JENNY: I thought you were painting me.
VASTRA: I was working.
JENNY: Well, why am I posing then?
VASTRA: Well, you brighten the room tremendously. Chin up a little.
JENNY: Oh, I don't understand why I'm doing this.
VASTRA: Art? Now, why destroy the victims so completely? It's difficult, it draws attention. What advantage is to be gained?
JENNY: Well, tell us, then.
VASTRA: Concealment, perhaps.
JENNY: Concealment?
VASTRA: It's a fanciful theory, but it fits the facts. By destroying the body so completely, you conceal what is missing from it.
JENNY: Missing from the body?
CLARA [OC]: Madame Vastra!
(A happy Clara bursts into the room.)
VASTRA: Clara, excellent. Pop your clothes on that chair there.
CLARA: Look.
(Clara shows Vastra the Times newspaper.)
VASTRA: Advertisements, yes. So many. It's a distressing modern trend.
CLARA: No, look. Look.
(One advert in the personal column says - Impossible Girl. Lunch on the other side?)
JENNY: Ma'am?
VASTRA: The game is afoot. We're going to need a lot of tea.

More than one woman: Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint, Clara Oswald
Talking about: The murders, Vastra’s art.

 

VASTRA: How many do you estimate, my dear?
JENNY: More than upstairs. About twenty, thirty?
VASTRA: The ones upstairs were mere decoys. These are battle ready. I anticipate a challenge.

More than one woman: Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint
Talking about: The coming fight.

 

VASTRA: Jenny!
(Sword points are at everyone's throats.)
CLARA: Hold your breath. They're stupid. Everybody hold their breath.
(They do. The droids pause then lower their weapons. Clara picks up the sonic screwdriver and crawls through the droid's legs on her hands and knees.)
VASTRA [OC]: Be brave, my love. I can store oxygen in my lungs. Share with me.
(Vastra and Jenny lock lips. Clara sonics the door.)

More than one woman: Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint, Clara Oswald
Talking about: Vastra shares her oxygen with Jenny (telepathically for some reason).

 

VASTRA: Please come in.
CLARA: I'm not interrupting?
VASTRA: I should be glad of your company. What can I do for you?
CLARA: Ah, well, that's exactly what I was going to ask you. Seems like I'm stuck here now. Got a vacancy?

More than one woman: Madame Vastra, Clara Oswald
Talking about: Clara asks if she can stay in Vastra’s household.

 

 

 

 

EPISODE 2 SERIES 8: INTO THE DALEK
Written by Steven Moffat and Phil Ford

JOURNEY: These are nanocontrollers. Once we're miniaturised, they take over the molecular compression. When the mission's over, hit the button.
(Journey puts the bracelet on Clara's wrist.)
JOURNEY: Are you sure you understand?
CLARA: Why wouldn't I?
JOURNEY: Because this is a dangerous mission and you look like a school teacher.
CLARA: I am a school teacher. Still didn't catch your name.
JOURNEY: Journey Blue.

More than one woman:
Madame Vastra, Journey Blue
Talking about: Clara’s job.

 

CLARA: Oh, God.
GRETCHEN: What? What is it?
CLARA: Antibodies?

More than one woman:
Clara Oswald, Gretchen.
Talking about: Antibodies.

 

JOURNEY: We need to place these charges for maximum effect. I'm going to scan the rest of the architecture for weaknesses.
CLARA: One question.
JOURNEY: No time.

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Journey Blue
Talking about: No time for questions!

 

JOURNEY: This is crazy. There is no way that we can get back up there in time.
GRETCHEN: Yes, there is.
JOURNEY: No, Gretchen. It'll bring the antibodies back down on us.

More than one woman: Journey Blue, Gretchen
Talking about: Gretchen’s about to sacrifice herself.

 

JOURNEY: So what do we do?
CLARA: Er, a clever thing, quickly. Think, think, think, think, think. Some of the lights are out.
JOURNEY: Yeah, we've got a damaged Dalek. You want to complain to someone?
CLARA: But it's not damaged, look at them.
JOURNEY: So?
CLARA: So, the Doctor said this was a memory bank and some of the memories were suppressed. What if. What if the dark spots are hidden memories? What if one of those is the Dalek seeing a star?
JOURNEY: Seriously?
CLARA: Yeah. Well, maybe. It's either that or the bulbs need changing.
JOURNEY: It really could be the bulbs.
CLARA: Got a better idea?
JOURNEY: Really wish I had.
CLARA: Yep, me too. Ah-ha.
(She pulls one of the panels off.)
CLARA: Watch out for antibodies. Let's see if there's an on switch.
(Clara goes behind, into the memory banks.)

More than one woman: Journey Blue, Clara Oswald
Talking about: The situation they’re in, and how to get out of it.

 

JOURNEY: Are you okay? Clara?
CLARA: Yeah. I think there was some sort of energy charge.
JOURNEY: You got the first lights on.
CLARA: Of course, it's a brain. Brains work with electrical pathways linking up memories. It's working. It's working, we're turning the memories back on.

More than one woman: Journey Blue, Clara Oswald
Talking about: The Dalek’s brain.

 

 

 

 

EPISODE 5 SERIES 8: TIME HEIST
Written by Steven Moffat and Stephen Thompson

(Saibra sighs and takes Clara's hand. For a few moments there are two Claras, then she lets go and changes back to her original self.)
SAIBRA: I touch living cells, I can replicate the owner.
CLARA: Your face, when we first saw you-
SAIBRA: I touched the worm.
CLARA: You can replicate their clothes too?
SAIBRA: I wear a hologram shell.

More than one woman: Saibra, Clara Oswald
Talking about: Saibra’s powers.

 

KARABRAXOS: It's the only way to control my own security. I have a clone in every facility. Get on it right away.
DELPHOX [on monitor]: Yes, of course.
KARABRAXOS: And then hand in your credentials. You're fired, with immediate effect.
DELPHOX [on monitor]: But please, I've been in your service-
KARABRAXOS: Ever since the last one let me down and I was forced to kill it. I can't quite believe that you're putting me through this again.
(Transmission ends.)
KARABRAXOS: My clone. And yet she doesn't even protest. Pale imitation, really. Ha! I should sue.
CLARA: You're killing her? You just said-
KARABRAXOS: Fired? I put all of the used clones into the incinerator. Can't have too many of moi scattered around.

More than one woman: Karabraxos, Miss Delphox, Clara Oswald
Talking about: Karabraxos killing her clones.

 

 

 

 

EPISODE 6 SERIES 8: THE CARETAKER
Written by Steven Moffat and Gareth Roberts


CLARA: Sorry, Mrs Christopholou, I think er, I think the caretaker wants me too.
MRS CHRISTOPHOLOU: But what about my Angelina?
CLARA: Yeah, she's great, yeah, a really great girl, A plus, ten out of ten, top of the class. Sorry.
(hurries off, then comes back)
CLARA: Although, actually, handwriting could be better.

More than one woman: Mrs Christopholou, Clara Oswald
Talking about: Angelina.
Notes: Since Clara’s first line mentions the caretaker (the Doctor), I’m not 100 percent sure this counts. But, Clara delivers two lines to her? So…maybe.

 

 

 

 

EPISODE 7 SERIES 8: KILL THE MOON
Written by Peter Harness

CLARA: Come on. Now, Courtney, come here. Don't look. You all right?
COURTNEY: I'm okay.
(The Doctor cuts the corpse down.)
CLARA: Hey. Look. Look at me. Look. It's all right if you're not.
COURTNEY: I'm fine. What did it?

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Courtney Woods
Talking about: Clara tries to comfort Courtney.

 

COURTNEY: Miss? Come in.
CLARA [OC]: Courtney?
COURTNEY: I'm bored. When are you coming back?
CLARA [OC]: We're on our way. What you doing?
COURTNEY: Putting some pictures on Tumblr.
(She flicks through pictures of the Doctor and Clara in space suits on her phone.)
CLARA: No! Courtney, don't put any photos on Tumblr.
LUNDVIK: My granny used to put things on Tumblr.

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Courtney Woods, Lundvik
Talking about: Tumblr!

 

LUNDVIK: How do we kill it?
CLARA: Why'd you want to kill it?
COURTNEY [on monitor]: It's a little baby.

More than one woman: Lundvik, Clara Oswald, Courtney Woods
Talking about: The monster and whether to kill it.

 

CLARA: Stop. Right, listen. This is a, this is a life. I mean, this must be the biggest life in the universe.
COURTNEY [on monitor]: It's not even been born.
LUNDVIK: It is killing people. It is destroying the Earth.
CLARA: You cannot blame a baby for kicking.
LUNDVIK: Let me tell you something. You want to know what I took back from being in space? Look at the edge of the Earth. The atmosphere, that is paper thin. That is the only thing that saves us all from death. Everything else, the stars, the blackness. That's all dead. Sadly, that is the only life any of us will ever know.
COURTNEY [on monitor]: There's life here. There's life just next door.
LUNDVIK: Look, when you've grown up a bit, you'll realise that everything doesn't have to be nice. Some things are just bad. Anyway, you ran away. It's none of your business.

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Courtney Woods, Lundvik
Talking about: The monster, and space.


CLARA: If we let it live, what would happen if the moon wasn't there?
LUNDVIK: Listen, we haven't got time for this.
CLARA: We're discussing it! What would happen if the moon wasn't there?
COURTNEY: I have a physics book in my bag. There's this thing on gravity?
LUNDVIK: Super. Is there a word search?
CLARA: Okay, there would be no tides. But we'd survive that, right? They've knocked out the satellites. There's no internet, no mobiles. I'd be fine with that.
LUNDVIK: It's not going to just stop being there, because inside the moon, Miss, is a gigantic creature forcing its way out. And when it does, which is going to be pretty damn soon, there are going to be huge chunks of the moon heading right for us, like whatever killed the dinosaurs, only ten thousand times bigger.
CLARA: But the moon isn't make of rock and stone, is it? It's made of eggshell.
LUNDVIK: Oh, God. Okay, okay, fine. If, by some miracle, the shell isn't too thick, or if it disperses, or if it goes into orbit, whatever, there's still going to be a massive thing there, isn't there, that just popped out. And what the hell do you imagine that is?
COURTNEY: Loads of things lay eggs.
LUNDVIK: It's not a chicken.
COURTNEY: I'm not saying it's a chicken. I'm not completely stupid.
LUNDVIK: It's an exoparasite.
COURTNEY: A what?
LUNDVIK: Like a flea. Or a head louse.
CLARA: I'm going to have to be a lot more certain than that if I'm going to kill a baby.
LUNDVIK: Oh, you want to talk about babies? You've probably got babies down there now. You want to have babies?
CLARA: Well, yeah.
COURTNEY: Mister Pink.
CLARA: Shush!
LUNDVIK: Okay. You imagine you've got children down there on Earth now, right? Grandchildren maybe. You want that thing to get out? Kill them all? You want today to be the day life on Earth stopped because you couldn't make an unfair decision? Listen, I don't want to do this. All my life I've dreamed about coming here. But this is how it has to end.
(Lundvik sets the trigger.)
COURTNEY: Oi!
LUNDVIK: I've given us an hour. There's a cut-out here. If anyone has any bright ideas, or if he comes back, that stops it. But once it's pressed, it stays pressed.

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Courtney Woods, Lundvik
Talking about: The three women discuss whether or not to kill the monster.

 

CLARA: Was that okay?
COURTNEY: Yeah.
(Bang! The lights flicker. Clara takes Courtney's hand.)
CLARA: Come on. Let's see.

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Courtney Woods
Talking about: The speech Clara just delivered.

 

LUNDVIK: We can't risk it all just to be nice.
CLARA: Okay.
COURTNEY: Miss?
LUNDVIK: Nine seconds.
COURTNEY: You can't!
LUNDVIK: Sorry, girls. See you on the other side. Two-
(Clara hits the cut-out switch. Detonation aborted.)
LUNDVIK: Hey!

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Courtney Woods, Lundvik
Talking about: Clara can’t kill the monster, against all advice.

 

CLARA: Yeah, you're right. It's none of your business. Come on, Courtney, off you go. Double Geography.
COURTNEY: Can we do it again?
CLARA: Go. Go, go. Chop chop.

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Courtney Woods
Talking about: Courtney wants to go round again.

 

 

 

 

EPISODE 8 SERIES 8: MUMMY ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS
Written by Jamie Mathieson

MAISIE: Mama, there isn't anyone there. Are you feeling okay?
MRS PITT: Don't you dare lie to me, girl. I won't be made a fool of. Stop it. Stop it. Stop him at once. Right now.
MAISIE: Mama, there's no one there. You're worrying me. Do you want one of your pills?

More than one woman: Maisie Pitt, Mrs Pitt
Talking about: The monster only one of them can see.

 

CLARA: Hello? Are you okay? Hello? Excuse me? Excuse me?
CLARA: Miss Pitt, wasn't it? Are you all right? Do you need some help?
MAISIE: My name's Maisie. I'm not mad.
CLARA: Oh, okay. Er, I didn't say you were, but you've had a bad day. I think anybody could do with a little bit of help after a day like today.
(Maisie addresses the panel next to a heavy door at the end of the baggage car. It is labelled Private Company Property)
MAISIE: Computer, open the door.
GUS: Call me Gus. I'm afraid this door can only be opened by executive order.
(The thumbs down icon makes a sad noise.)
CLARA: Are you okay?
(Maisie cries as she tries pressing buttons on the keypad.)
MAISIE: They won't let me see her body. They should let me see her body, shouldn't they?
CLARA: Er, yeah, I should think so. It's in there, is it? Okay, I have a friend who's really good with locks. Do you want to come with me, see if we can find him?
MAISIE: Oh!
(Maisie slams the heel of her shoe into the door key pad and shorts it out. The icon changes to a telescope on a tripod, then the thumbs down, then cannot make up its mind. The door opens.)
CLARA: Or you could do that because that works, too.
(Clara follows Maisie into the room and the door closes behind them.)

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Maisie Pitt
Talking about: Maisie wanting to see her grandmother’s body.
Notes: Gus the computer involves itself in this conversation, and the Doctor is mentioned, but the bits that don’t involve them are more than three lines.

 

MAISIE: Do you know what you're doing?
CLARA: Nope. But I do need to be slightly more skilled than a high-heeled shoe.
MAISIE: Do you ever wish bad things on people?
CLARA: Oh, yeah. All the time. Whoever designed this door, for a start.
MAISIE: She wasn't really my mum. She just made me call her that. She was my gran. Do you know why I wanted to see her body?
CLARA: Because you loved her very much and were missing her?
MAISIE: (chuckles) No. You obviously never met her. No, I just felt really guilty. Like I'd been picturing her dying for years. Like a daydream. Not really meaning it. At least, I don't think I did. But now, it just feels like I made this happen.
(Clara abandons the lock.)
CLARA: Hey, listen. You didn't do anything wrong. Difficult people, they can make you feel all sorts of things. But you didn't do it. You didn't kill her. She just died.
MAISIE: Are you sure about that?

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Maisie Pitt
Talking about: Maisie’s guilt over her grandmother’s death.

FORREST: MI5?
CLARA: Yes, this case has got our attention.
FORREST: Well, you've come to the right place, ma'am. First reported disappearance, a Mister Heath. It's not on the estate, but it's exactly the same MO as the rest.

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, PC Forrest
Talking about: The case.
Notes: The victim they’re talking about is a man, but I think it still counts?

 

 

 

 

EPISODE 10 SERIES 8: IN THE FOREST OF THE NIGHT
Written by Frank Cottrell Boyce

RUBY: Look at this. Why is this one so fat, miss?
CLARA: Because it was alive so long.
RUBY: This ring, though. All the other rings are thin, but this one's fat and red, see?
CLARA: Must have been a good year to be a tree.

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Ruby
Talking about: The tree.

 

RUBY: Miss, in the museum, right, I was reading about reproduction-
CLARA: Oh, Ruby, this really isn't the right moment.
RUBY: And that said that trees have blossom, and then that turns into fruit or seeds or nuts. Right?
CLARA: Right, Ruby.
RUBY: These trees have got blossom and nuts.
CLARA: Oh, yeah. That is strange.

More than one woman: Clara Oswald, Ruby
Talking about: Ruby spots something about the trees.

Written by Steven Moffat

MISSY: (sings) Hey, Missy, you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind. Hey, Missy. Hey. (speaks.) Excuse me. Hi. Can I tell you something really important?
OSGOOD: What.
MISSY: (sotto) I have to whisper it. It's, like, so important to everyone on this plane. You'll get in trouble if you don't listen.
OSGOOD: Right. If it was that important, why would you tell us?
MISSY: Well, look at me, I'm bananas. (sotto) Come on. Just a wee bit closer. Just a little closer. (normal) You know, the Doctor will be really impressed if you learn my secret. You can come a bit closer than that. Come on, stop mucking about. Don't be shy. You don't smell half as bad as you think you do.
OSGOOD: There are two armed men directly behind you.
MISSY: (sotto) Yeah, yeah, yeah.
OSGOOD: If you've got something to say, just say it.
MISSY: Ahem.
(Osgood leans in to listen.)
MISSY: (sotto) I'm going to kill you in a minute. I'm not even kidding. You're going to be as dead as a fish on a slab any second now, all floppy and making smells. But don't tell the boys. This is our secret girl plan.
OSGOOD: Why would you bother killing me? I'm not even important.
MISSY: Oh, silly. Why does one pop a balloon? Because you're pretty. You should have a bit more confidence in yourself.
OSGOOD: Okay. Sorry, I've got work to do.
MISSY: All right, fine. You get on. You get that finished. Would a countdown help you focus at all?
OSGOOD: No, that's okay.
MISSY: Ten. Don't be scared yet, cos I'm still in double figures.
OSGOOD: I'm not scared.
MISSY: Nine. Well, no, of course you're not, cos you know you're dying anyway. Eight. Human beings are born dying.Your life spans are hilarious.
OSGOOD: Please be quiet.
MISSY: Seven. You know from the minute you slop out, you're rotting, decaying. The stench of you. Phew. I'm never going to get this place clean. Three.
OSGOOD: Three?
MISSY: I'm accelerating for dramatic effect. Oh! What's that in your pocket?
OSGOOD: There's nothing in my pocket
(Osgood reaches into her lab coat pocket and pulls out a pair of handcuffs.)
MISSY: Oh my giddy aunt. The quiet ones are the worst.
OSGOOD: Well, those aren't mine.
MISSY: Hmm.
(Missy applies red lipstick.)
MISSY: Then they must be mine.
(In the blink of an eye, she has her arm around Osgood's throat, grabbed her thingy from the desk and vaporised the two soldiers.)
MISSY: Say something nice.
OSGOOD: Missy, the Master, whatever you call yourself, I promise, I'm much more useful to you alive.
MISSY: Oh, yeah, that's true. That's definitely true. That is a good point well made. I'm proud of you, sister. But did I mention bananas! Pop.
(Missy vaporises Osgood.)
MISSY: Ah. Thanks for being yummy.
(She steps on Osgood's spectacles, crushing the lenses. Then she uses her bracelet to make the airplane start swerving.)
MISSY: Whoo-oo!

More than one woman: Missy, Osgood
Talking about: Missy torments Osgood, then kills her.

SHONA [OC]: And how are you monitoring that? Cos that's rude! That is perverted.

More than one woman:
Shona, Bellows
Talking about: Shona’s bodily functions.

 

ASHLEY [OC]: From now on, everything you think and feel, everything you see, will be available to them.
[Control room]
ASHLEY: Most of it's fine, like traffic noise when you're sleeping, so long as you don't think about them.
[Corridor]
ASHLEY [OC]: So long as you don't look at them. So don't think about them -
[Control room]
ASHLEY: Don't look at them.
[Infirmary]
(Beep and the doors slide open. There are figures on the beds covered in sheets.)
SHONA: I thought there was going to be music.
BELLOWS [OC]: We've got your playlist

[Control room]
BELLOWS: Ready to go.
ASHLEY: Focus on the words of the song, try to remember what comes next.

[Infirmary]
ASHLEY [OC]: That will work like interference.
BELLOWS [OC]: Here comes your earworm.
(That perennial favourite earworm, Merry Christmas Everybody by Slade, starts playing.)

[Control room]
ASHLEY: Keep your eyes on the floor.
[Infirmary]
ASHLEY [OC]: Shut them, where possible.
[Control room]
ASHLEY: Focus on the music and move forward through the infirmary.
(Shona closes her eyes, moves to the beat, and sings along.)
BELLOWS: Oh, dear Lord, she's not actually-
ASHLEY: If dancing works, it works.

More than one woman: Ashley, Shona, Bellows
Talking about: THEM! And Shona’s dancing.

 

ASHLEY: Shona? Shona, what's wrong?
[Infirmary]
SHONA: We've, we've got ghosts!
ASHLEY [OC]: Ghosts?
SHONA: Yeah, yeah. It's a skeleton man and a girl in a nightie.

More than one woman: Ashley, Shona
Talking about: The ghosts. (Who are actually Clara and the Doctor.)

 

SHONA: Don't make me think about them!
CLARA: What are they?
(The figures start to sit up slowly.)
SHONA: Look. Just don't ask, yeah? And don't look. Don't make me think about them.

More than one woman: Ashley, Clara Oswald
Talking about: The things on the bed.

 

SHONA: I work in a shop.
ASHLEY: I'm sorry?
SHONA: I thought I was a scientist. That's rubbish.
BELLOWS: Finally, something that makes sense.
SHONA: You're horrible, you.
ASHLEY: Perfume.
SHONA: What?
ASHLEY: I'm an account manager for perfume. Does this mean we're waking up?

More than one woman: Shona, Ashley, Bellows
Talking about: The women remember their real lives.

 

SHONA: We might not know each other? Not any of us?
ASHLEY: No, possibly not.
SHONA: Well, you know what we should do? We should swap numbers. We should have a reunion.
ASHLEY: Bellows!
(Bellows has woken up)

More than one woman: Shona, Ashley
Talking about: Shona wants to swap numbers with the others.

 

SHONA: Well, don't say that. We'll remember, won't we, Ashley? Ashley?
(Ashley wakes up in bed, with her Dream Crab dying beside her. She leaps out of bed with a scream.)
SHONA: Am I next? Is it me now?
CLARA: Shona, you're going home. You're surviving.
SHONA: Do you want to hang out sometime? We can just hang out.
CLARA: Sure.

More than one woman: Shona, Ashley, Clara Oswald
Talking about: Shona wants hang out with Clara sometimes, but she’s not gonna get to.

By character

Analysis of how many times the main female companions pass a Bechdel Test (three lines minimum of dialogue not about a man with another named woman) in the episodes where she is a credited companion or significant cameo:

ROSE features in 32 episodes (including her appearance as Bad Wolf/The Moment): passes a Bechdel Test in 20 of them: 62%

MARTHA features in 19 episodes: passes a Bechdel Test in 16 of them: 84%

DONNA features in 16 episodes: passes a Bechdel Test in 14 of them: 87%

RIVER features in 14 episodes: passes a Bechdel Test in 12 of them: 85%

AMY features in 33 episodes (not counting her appearance in Time of the Doctor as she is only the Doctor’s illusion): passes a Bechdel Test in 19 of them: 57%

CLARA features in 24 episodes (not counting her ‘echoes’, but counting her brief appearance in The Snowmen): passes a Bechdel Test in 18 of them: 75%

*

The longest continuous conversation between two women (well, a woman and a little girl) is 42 lines between Clara and Merry in The Rings of Akhaten.
The longest continuous conversation between three women is 62 lines between Rose, Donna and Captain Magambo in Turn Left.

*

There are only two episodes across the whole of post-2005 Who to only have one female speaking role: Cold War and Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS. (The Girl Who Waited is not counted here as young Amy and old Amy are – although I’ll admit the point is arguable - two separate characters.)

*

Episodes that pass a Bechdel Test between two or more women of colour (only women of colour, no-one else included or cutting in for a minimum of three lines):

9 out of a total 117 episodes (7%)

(Fear Her, Smith and Jones, Gridlock, The Lazarus Experiment, 42, The Sound of Drums, Turn Left, The Stolen Earth, Journey’s End)

*

Episodes that pass a Bechdel Test between two or more LGBT women (only LGBT women, no-one else included or cutting in for a minimum of three lines):

4 out of a total 117 episodes (3%)

(New Earth*, A Good Man Goes To War, The Name of the Doctor, Deep Breath)
* = In New Earth Cassandra passes the Bechdel test by talking, whilst in a different body, to her past self. In a previous episode Cassandra speaks about her past life with the words “when I was a little boy”, therefore making her Doctor Who’s only transgender character to date.)
