Summary: Bill finds the Gallifreyan language baffling.
Bill stares at the ornate symbols. They’re writing, but not as she knows it, and she finds it impossible to imagine anyone reading such elaborate designs the way she can sit down and read a book. Come to that, it’s impossible to imagine anyone WRITING a book using nothing but these complexities. They remind her of crop circles.
“How do you read these?”
The Doctor gives her that look again, the one that says he can’t believe she asked him such a basic question. “It’s simple. Gallifreyan is the most eloquent language in the universe.”
