In the Irredeemable comic universe, at one point, Qubit uses a German phrase with a connotation very similar to the "Allons-y" used by the Doctor of Doctor Who.

What is that phrase, and in what issue of what series does he use it?

  • los geht's? lass uns gehen?

  • @sgfit I have seen what seemslike hundeds of episodes of Dr. Who (all in the original English), and I don't remember the Doctor saying "Allons-y" and nor do I know what such a phrase would mean. Possibly you spelled the Doctors phrase wrong, or maybe you watch Dr. Who dubbed into another language. Jul 26, 2022 at 17:13
  • @M.A.Golding, it’s David Tennant's Doctor and you can find clips on YouTube using the spelling in the post. Wiktionary says it means "Let’s go!", which makes sense in the Doctor Who context, too.

  • "Allons-y" is a common French phrasing for "let's go"

  • @M.A.Golding The question does not ask what French phrase that The Doctor says; the question asks what German phrase that Qubit says.

1 Answer 1


Reread the entire series. Turns out I didn't have to read far.

The answer is "Ausgezeichnet" (meaning 'Excellent'), first used in Irredeemable, issue 4.
