    Cameron Amy Pond and the fall of Arcadia

    She mentions it in the opening moments of Vincent and the Doctor when she is listing all of the places the Doctor has taken her (following the events of Cold Blood where Rory was killed and absorbed into the crack). Now, whilst Arcadia could be the name of any thousand different colonies or planets, it is quite strange that this wasn't elaborated following on from the events of The Last Day, where Arcadia 'the safest place on Gallifrey' fell to the Daleks.

    There's no way Amy and the Doctor could have visited this Arcadia between Cold Blood and Vincent and the Doctor...

    ... Or is there?

    According to the TARDIS wiki, the Arcadia that Amy and the 11th Doctor visit, is the same
    Arcadia that the 7th Doctor visited in the novel Deceit. and that the 6th Doctor tried to visit with Frobisher and Peri in a comic strip called Profits of Doom. It's a planet in Mutter's spiral. Though on what authority the TARDIS wiki say that I don't know.

    It's the thought that counts.

    It sounds a nice place to visit. I'd like to have gone there with Frobisher.

    That'd be the guilt.

    A penguin companion? What's next, a kangaroo?
