    NOTE: Any Great Work can be disabled by deleting the corresponding file

    Why Steven Moffat for Doctor Who? You should make it Sydney Newman, or Anthony Coburn, as they originally created the show.

    Moffat wrote Blink, which is the episode the quote is taken from.

    In that case, shouldn't you make the work 'Blink' rather than just Doctor Who?

    OH MY GOODNESS I DIDN'T REMEMBER TO ADD GEORGE ORWELL WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?!

    If you can give me a quote.

    I am not objective. I haven't watched anything of the old series, and Moffat is the show runner (I also considered Russell T Davies, but chose Moffat because of Blink). I can replace him with Davies, but none of the old, simply because I have no relationship with them. But I can change it to new series Doctor Who, and add an old series one with one of the show creators if you can provide me with a quote.

    Dunno. But they're in here now, at least. Also, LoTR is my favourite fictional book, so I really wanted it in-game. :p At least they managed to include Monsieur Verne, who I was surprised to discover was in-game the first time I got 20 000 Leagues Under the Sea.

    "White Wolf, did you eat Red Riding Hood?" - anonymous child
    or maybe ""Drinking alone is as bad as ****ting yourself in company." - Zoltan Chivay
    or "Iorveth:
    - Vernon Roche! Special Forces Commander for the last four years; servant of the Temerian King. Responsible for the pacification of the Mahakaman foothills. Hunter of Elves, murderer of women and children!"

    Roche:
    - Iorveth! A regular son of a b*tch!"

    Plase whay you like :)

    All quotes are from "Witcher 2:
    Assassins of Kings" game.

    The Witcher (first game)

    "Geralt: Why do the locals persecute non-humans?
    Dwarf: Why do d*cks go in tw*ts? It's the natural order of things."

    Geralt of Rivia: "Power, sex. Sex, Power. They both come down to one thing - F*cking others."

    Oh, I have nothing against using Blink. I'm just saying that normally Great Works are specific Great Works, so Blink would fit in better with the rest of them than just 'Doctor Who.'

    Though An Unearthly Child would be a good one to add too, by Anthony Coburn. Quote would be: "Have you ever thought what it's like to be wanderers in the Fourth Dimension? Have you? To be exiles? Susan and I are cut off from our own planet - without friends or protection. But one day we shall get back. Yes, one day...."

    Will add at least one of these in the next update.

    But if I were to do this I might as well add episode Great Works of the other TV series as well... though that would be an easy pleasure with FiM and relatively simple for Sherlock, it would be hard with Doctor Who, because I haven't watched any Matt Smith episodes yet (sue me :p).

    Also, if I were to do that I predict someone would ask me to make multiple Breaking Bad Great Works... which doesn't work for a series with an overarching story.

    On The Witcher, it is a videogame adaptation of a series of Polish books, with a special version released in Poland that came alongside the books.

    A quote from Fire Emblem, no matter which, would be nifty.
