Here's an observation I made.
During the RTD phase of Doctor Who they established rules, and pretty much that there are "fixed points" in time that can't be altered but in Moffat's run the theme seems to be "time can be rewritten"
Make of that whatever you will.
A really good one this was, and that's annoying because this show has so much inconsistency between episodes that it truly can be a love/hate relationship much of the time. Over the years we've had absolute garbage and then the infinitely sublime, and varying levels in between.
Also glad Karen tried a bit harder to act in this one, and the Doctor took a back seat. But Rory... I must be one of the few who just can't warm to his dopey, inept and naive character. I may be booed off stage for saying it, but some new companions next series would be nice.
Hmmmm... This one was okay even if not spectacular. Mainly because I'm not particularly fond of Amy. The aging was very well done, and my appreciation for Gillan's acting went up about five notches, because she was very believable as a bitter middle-aged woman.
