Doctor Who Story 210 – Vincent and the Doctor

Well, I guess I’m going to be crying soon. This is one of my favourite Doctor Who episodes.

The Doctor assuming the monster is evil by only seeing its face is not cool. Not cool, Doc.

I like Vincent and Amy flirting.

Doctor Who rarely discusses depression, rightfully so, it is a kids’ show, but maybe they should more?

The echoing of Vincent Van Gogh’s depression with Amy’s sadness over the loss of Rory is excellent.

“I’m not the marrying type.”

Doctor Who Story 209 – The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood

The Hungry Earth

Doctor Who loves stories about digging holes.

Someone saying “None of your business” to the Doctor who just wanders in asking random questions.

I like that this episode takes place in the past, but it’s 10 years in the future for Rory and Amy.

I like people kissing, but don’t kiss your coworkers.

Cold Blood

I forgot all about Rory being shot. I remember that he disappeared in the crack in the wall, but I forgot about him being shot. Amy forgetting Rory is horrible.

So much about this episode I really love, but it doesn’t come together as a memorable episode. It’s about Humanity’s worst, and it’s about Humanity’s best. It promises a possible fantastic empire for Humanity and the Silurians living and sharing on Earth. Both sides had someone who was hopeful and striving for a peace, and both sides had someone who was willing to kill for their side. I don’t actually know what is wrong with the episode, and why it just doesn’t work, but it doesn’t. I really wish I could articulate it better.

Doctor Who Story 208 – Amy’s Choice

“Five years later and you haven’t changed a bit, except for aging.” Rory needs to cut off that ponytail.

Wow, that was terrible.

Doctor Who Story 207 – The Vampires of Venice

Rory is wearing a stupid tshirt from his bachelor party. I recently walked by a woman wearing a shirt that says “I Do Team” or something like that. Made me think how horrible our society is that we make clothing for one wear only.

HAHAHA! The Doctor, the cake, telling Rory that Amy tried to kiss him, and he’s a lucky man, she’s a great kisser. I love this show so much.

Oh great a plague episode. It’s more fun when we’re in a plague ourselves.

Amy’s a bit mean to Rory.

My wife makes a good point. Amy is a stripper, so Rory should be less nervous about a stripper jumping out of a cake at his bachelor party.

Why are you scared of heights if you can jump out of a spaceship, crash through a skylight and just stand right back up?

Those children, eating their mother. How rude!

Doctor Who Story 206 – The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone

The Time of Angels

River’s great.

Sulky Doctor because River is better than him is great.

I forgot how great this episode was because I was focused on how bad the story is.

See, and the video clip moving is dumb, but the interactions between the Doctor and Amy, River and the Doctor, Amy and River are all so good.

The Doctor is on Virginia Woolf’s bowling team? Hmm, she died in 1941, a lot later than I would have thought.

Amy’s hand turning to stone. Is that a reference to the Pompeii episode she was in?

The best part of this story is truly the relationship of those three characters. I love it so much.

Flesh and Stone

The forrest is fun. I want a tree-borg.

Did Alex Kingston know that Amy is River’s mum, yet? Did Moffatt?

The Doctor is such an idiot, and I love it.

RORY’S IN THE NEXT EPISODE!

Doctor Who Story 205 – Victory of the Daleks

That’s not John Lithgow.

“Would you care for some tea?”

Once again Amy is proving herself to be more intelligent than any previous Nu Who companions.

The British bombers in space yelling “tally ho” is amazing. This is the most British show there is.

What’s the translation of rels to seconds? This is why Google exists. “A rel was approximately 1.2 seconds.”

Amy really shines through in this episode. It’s really obvious why she’s my favourite companion of the modern era.

Here’s some more Lithgow.

Doctor Who Story 204 – The Beast Below

What adult doesn’t think this education system is creepy as fuck?

The Doctor is such a liar, but I like this intro to adventures with him.

I’ve never loved this episode, but I certainly love Matt Smith and Karen Gillan.

The Doctor pushing off that he’s the last of his species with, “Long day, bad day” is prefect.

Close your mouths!

They always went on about how Rose was brilliant, but I think they show Amy’s smarts.

Doctor Who Story 203 – The Eleventh Hour

Hate the new logo, but the rest of the opening credits is an upgrade… though the old logo sucked, too.

Amy praying to Santa is great.

I like that the TARDIS has a swimming pool in the library.

Matt Smith is great.

The whole eating scene is such a great scene for the wackiness and wonderfulness that is Matt Smith.

The Doctor leaving for “five minutes” and Amelia’s reply of “people always say that” is heartbreaking. And now she’s packing a bag to run off with the Doctor.

Rory!

Olivia Colman! Oscar winner, Olivia Colman!

Amy is great!

This doctor needs to listen to her staff.

“Do I just have a face that no one listens to? Again?”

I love that Amy is a stripper.

Where to start in that 30 seconds. Matt Smith saying no she hadn’t seen him because he has a new face and then stretches it and does funny things. Matt Smith finding out what a “kiss-a-gram” (read: stripper) is and saying “you were a child 5 minutes ago!” Or “You’re worse than my aunt,” “I’m the Doctor, I worse than everyone’s aunt!” That’s the best 30 seconds of Doctor Who. Bravo!

Doctor, maybe don’t send a lady’s scooter running out of her control… or a giant firetruck to careen down the road out of control.

Oh Jeff being more attractive than Rory. The good news is Rory is the one she marries.

The giddy look on Matt Smith’s face as he drives the fire truck is great.

Yay! The aliens are gone!

Amy is the literal personification of wide-eyed.

I love the new set.

Poor Rory.

Doctor Who Story 190 – The Fires of Pompeii

Ancient Rome… not the first time the Doctor’s been there. I like that they just addressed that. I also like that Amy Pond is watching the Doctor and wondering why he isn’t Matt Smith. Or at least that’s what I assume she’s thinking about.

They’re missing a couple of names from the opening credits. Karen Gillan and Peter Capaldi. I am so looking forward to Amy’s time on Doctor Who, it might be my favourite.

Yay! There’s Capaldi! I wonder if he’s actually the Doctor, and spent some time in Pompeii for fun and was looking forward to his arrival and wanted to buy is old TARDIS.

Good job Donna, standing up to the Doctor.

I like that their walkie talkie is just their hands over their eyes.

I wanna be a Chief Auger. Sounds like a good title.

I’m enjoying this even more.

Amy, don’t steal Donna!

I love how indignant Donna is.

This episode is so stupid, but yet so enjoyable.

Doctor, save your future self.

Peter Capaldi birthing the word “volcano” was completely unnecessary and didn’t work.

The Doctor really does need a companion, and he definitely doesn’t need to spend so much time vetting his companions like he did for Martha.
