    I'm getting to this extremely late because of leaving really soon after it aired and forgetting to post after I got back... but you were right, LOVED IT. Favorite episode this season. And I nearly cried too... but then I also did when Rory... *sniff* ... you know.

    Anyway. Great episode all around.

    I was like, "He's gonna do a double-take!!" Then he did.

    I wouldn't say this was the first good episode, but there have been several that made me go "meh". I haven't enjoyed this season that much as a whole. It's been decent, just not great, IMO.

    For those who really like the episode (like me ), here's a little bit of trivia about the episode I shared with Sealurk I thought y'all would like. If you watch Vincent and the Doctor, go to the part where Amy, the Doctor, and Vincent are at the café getting acquainted. Listen very carefully to the accordion in the background. You'll find that it's the same set of repeated notes from the track "I am the Doctor" from the series 5 soundtrack. This little bit isn't included in the official soundtrack. "I am the Doctor" has certainly popped up in many unexpected places this past season.

    It's a shame, this was the episode I was looking forward to the most but it ended up being the second most boring episode of this series (the first being Victory of the Daleks). For me it just felt like it was replicating the formula of The Shakespeare Code. The best moments of this episode were the more dramatic and educational bits, the monster side of the story really weighed it down. I understand that the latter is what makes the series great, but i'd love to see them do an episode where it is event based rather than having the weekly obligatory monster or alien. However, the episode was brilliantly performed and I especially enjoyed Bill Nighy's presence, i've never been disappointed by a performance of his and this one is no exception. However, concerning the monster story, it was just filler - I really had no concern for it at all. Instead of getting one really strong story, we got two half-told stories.

    From a point of writing, while that was mostly good, there were just some areas that it didn't work. Did they ever explain why only Van Gough could see the alien? I remember the Doctor talking to him about it but the dialogue was skimmed over very quickly. Overall, an average episode because of my anticipation for it.

    It's a great piece of music and I know I'd try to use it whenever possible.. It's grand and adventurous and mischievous and light and powerful and fun and dark...a bit like the Doctor himself really.

    Holy homunculus, really?

    I'm getting there soon on my rewatch, so I'll definitely be looking out for that.

    "I am the Doctor" is probably the most exciting music cue I have ever heard. In all seriousness.

    Cool episode, one of my favorites so far, even if I felt they hugged each other a bit too often...

    it took till now, while I re watched this episode, for me to realize that Tony Curran played Vincent in this episode, it was kind of strange to see Datak Tarr with human skin and eyes and the human beard, it really threw me.

    I have a giggle at myself whever I see a pic of Simon Fisher-Becker (Dorium Maldovar) and I'm surprised that he's not really blue.

    In the midst of a re-watch. This is still among my favourite episodes in Doctor Who history. As someone who suffers with chronic depression and am very close with people who suffer with bi-polar and borderline disorders too just having an episode that is dedicated to one of the most famous sufferers of these types of disorders is lovely. Perfect writing.
    Please do me a huge favour and help me be with the love of my life.
