This episode was bittersweet. Especially when you know that this is Amy and Rory’s last episode before their exit next week. There were a lot of beautiful moments between Amy and the Doctor, The Doctor telling her that he misses them and how Rory and Amy can’t seem to say goodbye to their raggedy man.
It started with cubes appearing out of nowhere all over the planet. This particular story seemed secordary to the interaction between the Ponds and the Doctor. I think, that as viewers we don’t think much about the passing of time. Amy put in brilliantly, time still moved for them, when they travelled with the Doctor. So ever if the Doctor returned them a few seconds after they left, they still aged while their friends don’t. Ahh time travel, it’s enough to give you a headache if you think about it too much.
The Doctor Who writing crew love to insert references to the pass seasons. Creating links between the past and future, pleasing everyone of their fans.
The next episode features the return of the weeping angels, hate those things and the return of River Song, which should be interesting. I’m sure that I’m going to need some tissues and we say our final goodbye to the Ponds.
