- when did you stop believing in everything?
- when did you start believing in impossible heroes?
- don’t you know?
what is that in the mirror, or the corner of your eye?
what is that footstep following, but never passing by?
perhaps they are all just waiting. perhaps when we are all dead,

stuck with you, that’s not so bad.
I am and always will be the optimist, the hoper of far-flung hopes and the dreamer of improbable dreams.

And over there: lighter blue and blowing through the blues and blackness the winds swirling through the air and then shining, burning, bursting through: the stars! And you see how they roar their light. Everywhere we look, the complex magic of nature blazes before our eyes.
The Dalek Asylum. You said it was me that saved you. How? Victorian London. How, how could I have been in Victorian London?
There’s no such thing as ghosts, thinks Clara Oswald. If a ghost is a memory of somebody we lost and can’t let go, the Doctor is most definitely surrounded by them. And Clara watches him struggling with some of them - Clara’s echoes. But there is only one original Clara, who does not want to be ‘a bargain basement stand-in for someone else’. But she accepts that people around the Doctor just don’t come and go, in a way they stay with him forever - as ghosts. And that she will become one of them as well, although she might not like that idea. But in the end, she finds out who the ghosts the Doctor was was concerned about are and creates them to save the universe.
