Our Lady of Littleness

" Each Life creates The Next - no wonder Time Lords and Buddhists get on so well. " 

- The Chorister

Our Lady of Littleness loves being with children, appearing to children, and helping us become like children. 

(Davros is crying.)

Dr. Disco :
Okay, don't ever tell anyone that I did this...

(He waves his hand around until a golden glow forms.)

Dr. Disco :
A little bit of regeneration energy - Probably cost me an arm or a leg somewhere down the line....

 I'm suddenly going to grow this demon part and we don't even know what it is. 
It could be claws or scales...

Willow's expression turns shocked. 



Was it a boy demon..?


Dr. Disco : 
Or, I'll just be really little....

"The Old Man must die;
and The New Man Will Discover,
to his inexpressible joy,
that He has never existed...!"

- Buddhist/Time Lord Aphorism
K'Ampo Rimpoche

"This is above all Strangeness...
This Doctor keeps cropping up all over the place. 

Political diaries, conspiracy theories, even ghost stories. No first name, no last name, just The Doctor. 

Always The Doctor. 

And the title seems to have been passed down from Father to Son. 

It appears to be an inheritance.... "

- Clive Finch, 2005

Not-Shakespeare :
Perhaps it's time I wrote about Fathers and Sons
in memory of my boy, my precious Hamnet. 


Not-Shakespeare :
That's him. 


Not-Shakespeare :
What's wrong with that?

Our Lady of Littleness loves being with children, appearing to children, and helping us become like children. 

It’s so hard for us to become like children in this aging world, because we are wired to fear littleness. 

But littleness is the pathway to the Kingdom — empowering us to love one another here on earth and get ready for heaven. Jesus understands this and that is why He sends us so much help. On the cross He gave us His mother, Our Lady of Littleness. And Mary, in her humility, draws the Holy Spirit like a magnet. She helps us become little too, so that we can become filled with the Holy Spirit. 

On Friday I prayed with two saintly children in preparation for a children’s Holy Hour. This helped me to become more little and better able to lead the worship. There we were, all of us “little ones” praising the Lord together and so happy! I believe that Jesus is sending Our Lady of Littleness to us in these tumultuous times to help us surrender completely to the Holy Spirit and  discover, with the little ones, the most simple and direct path to happiness and heaven.  Mt. 18:3 // Jn. 19: 26-27

The Grace of Forgetfulness

Alex :
No! I've got to stop them, now! 

I'm quite happy to get a taxi.

And I'm quite capable of driving my wife and child to The Station.

Come on, Alex, get in.
Leave it.
We've got a train to catch.

Alex’s Father :
Some music, Alex? 

I'm Happy 
Hope You're Happy, Too - 

Alex :
It's just round this corner.
What the bloody hell? 

Oh, my God.
It wasn't the billboard.
It's happening now! 

Alex’s Father :
Get in the bloody car! 
Come on, get back in the car! Alex! 
Come on, get back in the car! 

Just hold it a minute! 



It was you

If all goes to plan, by the time you are watching this I will be dead, along with my wife Caroline and our beloved daughter Alexandra.

Why did I do it?  

"The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation 
and go to the grave with the song still in them".

Well, not me and, er not Caroline.
We sang our song.

But, a very charming man, 
a maggot, wriggled into our paradise 
and it was compromised.

The Truth was sullied 
and it could never be unsullied.

But shed no tears for me, 
Caroline or Alex.

We are where we want to be, 
together, forever.

Uncle Evan :
I knew he was intense, 
but his own wife and child?! 
I couldn't understand why he was so keen to get Layton out of the Scrubs.
He needed him to plant the bomb.

Gene Hunt :
OK? You sit here, sweetheart, 
and if these two naughty boys start getting out of hand,  let me know.


The little girl's asking to go home with Evan.

You OK? 
She's got no uncles or aunts that she knows.

I mean, I know that I'm not a blood relative, 
but I'm all she's got.
And I love her.

So will you help me to get custody? 

There's one more thing.
I never want her to know what Her Father did.

Alex :
Maybe she has a right to know.

Uncle Evan :
When she's older.

Alex :
You'll never tell her.

- it's not your fault.

Uncle Evan :
Thank you.

Alex :
You just destroyed evidence.

Gene Hunt, 
Sheriff of Purgatory :
How would you like to grow up knowing Your Daddy tried to blow you to kingdom come...? 

Alex :
I'm the piece of his past.
I will be.
He'll be blackmailed by Layton for not telling her the truth.

Gene Hunt, 
Sheriff of Purgatory :
I need a drink.

Uncle Evan :
I'm taking her home.
Thanks for all your help.
It's just you and me now, eh? 
Forever and ever.

Gene Hunt, 
Sheriff of Purgatory :
Bye, little lady.
Any problems, you just call the Gene-Genie.

Alex :
How come you were there, taking the little girl's hand? 

That couldn't have happened.
You weren't there.
You're not real.

Gene Hunt, 
Sheriff of Purgatory :
I'm everywhere, Bolly.
I was needed and I was there.

Hello? I've learnt something here, Molly.
Something I hope you always knew that my mother loved me.
And that love will keep me going, it will make me survive.

Don't blow those candles out yet, Molls.
I'll find my way home.
I promise.

I love you, and I will never, ever give up.

Shazza! Shazza! 

How are you, Shaz? - 
I'm good, Thanks to you, My Guardian angel.

Hey, Luigi, have you heard about those Italian war rifles for sale? 

No, Chris.
Never been fired, only dropped once!
 Hey, Luigi, why do Italian men have moustaches? 
I don't know, Chris.
Cos-a they want-a look-a like their momma! 

Good one Molto divertente Gracias.
Hey, Luigi, how many.... 

Hey! Bolls! Bolls! You look dreadful.
Come and join The Land of The Living.

There really is a Land of The Living, you know -
a sanctuary refuge bailey-court,
where calm and lawful order remains in place, enclosured, bound-up fastness  

Oi, Luigi, we're dying of thirst over here.
It's all about timing, This Life.
Still got things to learn, adventures to have.
Unbreakable, Bolly Unbreakable.
Unlike this bloody wine, which is undrinkable! Luigi! 
Gimme a beer!
