So, the Ponds departed from Doctor Who last night. Unlike some, I thought that the episode was an excellent one. That can be ascertained from the fact that, at one point (when Rory and Amy jump to their deaths off the apartment block), Martin threw me a kitchen roll to dowse my blubbing in.
The sequence of Rory trying to keep his matches alight, whilst Weeping Angel cherubs were blowing them out was up there with the iconic moment in Pitch Black. The Weeping Angels are almost nudging the Daleks off the pedestal of the premier Doctor Who foes at this point for me.
And I can’t help thinking that the name of the New York apartment block (“Winter Quay”) was significant in some fashion. Was it an anagram, perhaps?
“We quit! A(my), R(ory), NY”
Who knows? I’ll be there waiting, in anticipation, for the Christmas episode…
Update: There was a coda to this episode that was written, but never actually filmed. I don’t understand why. It is simply perfect.
