Of course, I was wrong. I can't quite make my mind up about how much I enjoyed that. All the time-travel stuff was carefully thought out and cleverly executed. I'm not keen on Doctor Who going into psycho-babble about how memories can restore things - in this specific case, bringing the Doctor back from the Void (see Last of the Time Lords for a more egregious example). But I think I will let it pass this time, because the rest of the story did hang together rather successfully.

Highlights:
  • Daleks as "unknown relics" in the museum - surely High Status artefacts, signifying Ritual Activity?

  • Rory the Auton comes in quite handy (ouch!) when confronted with a reactivated Dalek

  • Fezzes are cool / What is he wearing on his head?

  • The Blinovitch Limitation Effect apparently applies to sonic screwdrivers, but not to Amy Pond or the Doctor

  • The stars in Amy's painting, like Vincent's

  • The Dawkins Cult (!)

  • Geronimo! (Although I thought the message should perhaps have read Goodbye Sweetie!)

  • River Song, and The Diary, as a way of triggering Amy's memory

  • I bet that dance is just the latest thing amongst the High Council of the Time Lords


Now, what to do until Christmas?

I'm going to go and sit in my Pandorica.

Now that would be one way! But we won't get your Thorts on the Key to Time if you do that.

Don't worry, I will have nipped back in time and written them all down in River's little blue book.
