…[The Doctor is] just a lunatic who’s capering around trying to have lunch somewhere nice, and all these people think that he’s this massive, mighty foe… I think that’s a fun thing to play with. Because we know he isn’t. We know he hasn’t even got a plan. He can’t even drive the box. We know that’s not true. So I think that makes it a fun thing to play with. It’s a dangerous card for the Doctor to play because the more he makes his enemies fear him, the more powerful they will become in response to what is, in fact, an unarmed man who can’t drive

the merkwelt (German: Merkwelt, meaning “way of viewing the world”, “peculiar individual consciousness”) is a concept in robotics, ethology and biology that describes a creature or android’s capacity to view things, manipulate information and synthesise to make meaning out of the universe. In biology, for example, a shark’s merkwelt for instance is dominated by smell due to its enlarged olfactory lobes whilst a bat’s is dominated by its hearing, especially at ultrasonic frequencies.
