The biggest disappointment of the week: hearing that this show won’t be returning.
He needs you, his other self had told her, words and sand stinging her eyes. If the Doctor had enough air in his lungs, he would shout now at the understatement of those words. He would scream loud enough for a fool to hear him in another universe[…]

Rose makes him want. (X)
