You Are Not Alone
And this is the song that they sing: "...fast falls the eventide/ The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.../ Help of the helpless, O abide with me/ Change and decay in all around I see/ O Thou who changest not, abide with me." And this is the song that they sing: "Not a brief glance I beg, a passing word/ But as Thou dwell'st with Thy disciples, Lord/ Familiar, condescending, patient, free/ Come not to sojourn, but abide with me." And this is the song that they sing: "Come not in terrors, as the King of kings/ But kind and good, with healing in Thy wings/ Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes/ Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies." And this is the song that they sing: "Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee/ In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me." Come not to sojourn, but to abide.
The Doctor tells finally of beautiful Gallifrey, and The Last Of The Boekind, New Earth's Devil and God in one -- both terrible and wonderful; King of Kings but kind and good, healing, like a doctor would -- gives up everything to save humanity. And his last words are, "Everything has its time," and his secret is this: "You are not alone."
VI: Daleks in Manhattan/Evolution of the Daleks
I don't know what the fuck is going on in this story.
The plan was to do each of the S3 recaps in a different style: "42" would be a classic '60s big-sky story like Solaris, with that Lem sense of being translated from Russian fifty years ago. "Human Nature" would be a provincial Boy's School setting, slightly archaic and precious, like an E.F. Benson story. A bit of Chameleon Circuitry to balance the gigantic monster novel thing made of the first two seasons. So like...
See those Daleks, right? See those Daleks? Those Daleks, see them? Right, coming over the Atlantic from Canary Wharf and itching to make pig people like Andy Pipkin but with those tusks right but then not?
