What I thought was perfect for me was “Day of the Doctor” – their 50th Anniversary Special started with a quote by Marcus Aurelius. “Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one!” Which is really very close to “Do or Do not. There is no try.” It’s always the same kind of ideal, let’s just go do these things. so, I think that is quote wonderful. We come to this quote in this episode celebrating the entire series and I’m going to talk about how I think that is reflected.
