There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, and the sea’s asleep, and the rivers dream; people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there’s danger, somewhere there’s injustice, and somewhere else the tea’s getting cold. Come on, Ace. We’ve got work to do!

Andrew Cartmel (b. 1958) British author, journalist, screenwriter, editor
Doctor Who, 26.4 “Survival,” ep. 3 (6 Dec 1989)

Final words of the series prior to its hiatus. The episode was written by Rona Munro, but the final monologue was written for the Sylvester McCoy's Seventh Doctor by Cartmel.
