    Spoiler:
    River still needs to write the book so obviously she can go and visit any time and give Amy the book to publish. ...I have plot ideas in my head, but no time to write a fanfic... ugh.... Would be nice if River got Doctor to visit..... especially when River has to say "good-bye" to her parents.
    True. =) And yeah, I get fanfic ideas a lot, but can never actually write them. >.<

    I liked this episode, partly because it was Amy's last *activates force shields*. Mostly for the time issues involved. Sad ending for the doctor to lose the companions that way, but...
    I did find the Statue of Liberty marching up to the building to be a tad silly.

    Glad I'm not the only one... maybe one day I'll get the ambition to do it. Been ages since I wrote anything long.

    Was definitely sad, but so well done. I thought seeing Lady Liberty as an "angel" was such a cool idea. We say the statue with the mom and boy move so why not her. Gotta through in that "NO WAY!" idea in once in awhile. IMHO.

    Just finished a re-watch. Wow. A sad, sweet, powerful goodbye to the doctor's beloved companions (and in-laws). The episode hits all the right emotional notes for Amy and Rory's departure. Speaking of notes, Murray Gold outdid himself. I'm eager for the series seven soundtrack.

    Others are correct, however, to observe that TPTB were sloppy with the rest. They need to adhere to their own established rules and also restrain themselves from excesses like the Statue of Liberty going for a walk.

    So, story was emotionally pitch-perfect but but logically incoherent. I liked it, but inattention to the verse's rules snapped my suspension of disbelief more than I'd like.

    Yes, the doctor's insistence that Amy and Rory are lost to him appears arbitrary -- present only to serve a dramatic requirement -- considering what we've seen in the show. Okay, so the TARDIS can't land in Manhattan in 1938. Not really an issue. Land nearby. Land a year later. Pick them up with River's vortex manipulator. Their loss is poignant but nonsense.

    No ! You cannot say that their loss is nonsense. Well, yes it is actually.

    I thought it was a rather clumsy way to ensure that Amy and Rory are lost to the Doctor in relation to the show. Karen had made it clear she didn't want to return. Arthur seemed more relaxed.

    However, I did find it really nice that they didn't die. They went back in time and had their life together. That made their leaving far easier.

    The episode was good, though not for the first time a major plot point hangs on Rory being a total idiot !. Didn't anyone tell him when you escape you don't go looking around the graveyard, you get into the TARDIS and GO !!!!

    I enjoyed this one, and I'm glad Amy and Rory got the chance to live out their lives together.
