sunsawed: If you look at the longer story arcs....

[I'm not going to waste space reposting your whole post]

I agree with you, and thank you for analogising Amy's treatment of Rory to the Doctor's treatment of her in "The God Complex". I had not thought to do that.

There is another thing to keep in mind when looking at Amy & Rory's Doctor-less home-life. Not only did they lose the Doctor and that excitement, but they lost their best mate, Mels. River pops by to see them now and then, but she is running around with the Doctor and by her self. Mels was their closest friend, both of theirs; they hung out together since they were small children; and she's suddenly gone forever. They also don't have any of their families and other friends around anymore, as they have lived in London since the end of "The God Complex". Sure, they can ring them up, unlike Mels, but it's not the same as being able to just pop round to their homes or meet up for a pint. They're all alone (apart for the few weeks they had the Ood butler).

If the Doctor had left them a few names of people they could invite over -- a black couple who are often out of town but who can certainly relate to them, a kindly old man who lives only a few miles away and understands, a pair of teens who are almost as close by as he is and who are now dealing with a similar loss, a philanthropist & pyromaniac in her late 30s -- then perhaps the Ponds would not be in quite as dire straights.

Old enough to know better: Yeah, I admit it got a little dusty in here during the scene where Amy explained why she divorced Rory. Quite an accomplishment too since she usually gets on my damn nerves.


All I thought was "wow, what a stupid selfish biatch. She couldn't have brought this up at any point before signing the farking divorce papers?"

Useless Destruction of Exergy: (in terms of story continuity)

Story continuity and temporal continuity aren't the same thing. Also, um, it's Doctor Who. Canon has, and always should be, little more than a suggestion. There is only one thing that is always true in Doctor Who: the Doctor is an adventurer with a stolen time machine, and he loves getting into trouble.

Flint Ironstag: Talking through a radio/comm system is different from using the Dalek voice box. She'd imagine her voice the same way she imagined her body, the comfy chair etc.
A Dalek is just a tank. A tank operator will sound very different over the radio and over the tanks PA system.

Except that we & the Doctor hear her voice -- i.e., the actress' real voice, the one she will presumably still have when she starts as a companion in "Doctor Who's All-Lesbian Christmas Hour".

Unless Oswin was somehow able to change her voice, how could the Doctor NOT have known what she was?

That's a hole big enough to fly Bootsy and the entire Dalek parliament mother ship through.

FirstNationalBastard: Mega Steve: [ image 615x597]

I like her a lot already. She's adorable and a good actress.

Ace 2.0.

/not that that's a bad thing.

As long as we don't get an Adric 2.0.

I'm sorry, but waiting for 2000 years trumps everything. That part of the episode didn't compare to everything else (which was fantastic) because of it.

FirstNationalBastard: Stupid, thoughtless biatch was what I meant. And the character has always been that way.

Amy is and has always been half a crazy person, and really I wouldn't have her any other way. Remember, this is someone who went through four psychiatrists because she kept biting them.

Good episode, but the divorce/reconciliation stuff seemed pretty artificial to me.

My original thought was. Biatch, you can just adopt a kid!

"I didn't kick you out, I gave you up" That line will get me no matter how many times I watch it. Like Rose's dad jumping into traffic.
