When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.
This is Emergency Program One. Now Rose, I need you to listen this is important. If this message is activated then it can only mean one thing. We must be in danger, and I mean fatal. I’m dead or about to die with no means of escape, and that’s okay I hope it’s a good death. But I promised to look after you and that’s what I’m doing. The TARDIS is taking you home. And I bet you’re fussing and moaning now, typical, but hold on and just listen a bit more. The TARDIS can never return for me. Emergency Program One means I’m facing an enemy that should never get their hands on this machine, so this is what you should do. Let the TARDIS die. Just let this old box gather dust. No one will notice it, no one can even open it. Let it become a strange little thing standing on a street corner, and over the years the world will move on and the box will be buried. And if you want to remember me you can do one thing, that’s all, one thing. Have a good life. Do that for me Rose, have a fantastic life.
Molly works [as a character], because, while Watson is “the audience” [for Sherlock], Molly is every woman of a certain age sitting at home on the settee fantasising about running their hands through Benedict Cumberbatch’s hair.
Which is basically what I’d have been doing if I wasn’t in the show… Also, I think most people have experienced the agony and the ignominy of unrequited love… I’ve never thought Molly was an idiot. She just really, really loves him.
