Rose: I thought we’d be going for the Vegas era. You know, the white flares and the—(growls seductively)—chest hair.
Doctor: You are kidding aren’t you? You want to see Elvis, you’ve gotta go to the late 50s. Time before burgers, when they called him “The Pelvis” and he still had a waist. What’s more, you see him in style. (he rides out on a moped) You goin’ my way, doll?
Rose: Is there any other way to go, Daddi-o?
Doctor Who “The Idiot’s Lantern” 2.07
Wired: Do the Doctors change according to when the shows are made? Do we all get the Doctor we deserve?
Moffat: When the new Doctor has worked, he’s been in tune with the times, yeah. I look at Tom Baker’s Doctor and that’s the ’70s to me. It’s nostalgic and wonderful. But because Doctor Who is an old show, it must never look old. It must always feel new. I’m not trying to make Doctor Who for the old fans. I’m trying to get the next generation of children to fall in love with the show.
