what story has a quote like smething like:

"Playing for time? Quite the reverse?" It is a Tom Baker story. And what the hell did he mean?

I don't recognise that quote at all, and trust me, I'm not bad at quotes. Any idea of context?

context is a bad guy (don't remember which one) telling the Doctor he's stalling the inevitable.

which doesn't exactly limit it...

I think its the Invasion of Time, his reply to the Sontarans after they've invaded in the latter two epsidoes. but i can't guarentee that yet.

what did he mean? his implication that he's still a Time Lord and time is the one thing he knows he has more of than any other creature out there. at least, at one abstraction level.

'Tis from Warriors' Gate, episode 4. The Doctor's just been explaining to Rorvik (the captain of the slaver ship) that the mass of his ship is causing the time gateway in which they're caught to collapse; Rorvik doesn't believe him and accuses him of stalling, 'playing for time'. The Doctor's reply is thus to indicate that time is running out.

Well, I think he means it is "time for play" vs the accusation that he is "playing for time".

However, I don't recognize the quote (it does sound very Who-like, though).
