    Hatred, of course, is only ever mentioned in reference to Ace's mother. Because the opposite of love here isn't hate, it's murderous disinterest. Ace can only hate her mother because of the love that feeling is entwined with, or perhaps is submerged by. In short, Ace can only hate her mother because she loves her. Millington can only wistfully contemplate massacring Russians because of his utter indifference to them.

    Hatred has its own body-count, of course, out there in the Real. Fenric simply suggests that there might be something worse.

    Great Comrade of United People's Democratic Fascist Socialist Republican Communist Tyranny of Whoniverse:

    WOW. This is one of the most insightful readings I have ever read of a Doctor Who story, not to mention reinforced the episode in question as one of my favorites of all time. Basically, thank you.
