The Big Bang

The Big Bang

We begin at the home of little Amelia, where her aunt has Amelia talking to a psychiatrist. The reason for the intervention: Amelia keeps drawing stars and claiming they exist. Except they don’t, not for a very long time. And it’s from this point that we figure out something is terribly, terribly wrong. I love … Continue reading

The Pandorica Opens

The Pandorica Opens

Ok everyone, like Amy says, this is where things get complicated. Ok, so this picture is from the next episode, the Big Bang (you have to wait a bit for that one!), but it pretty much classifies this entire episode arc. The Doctor and Amy begin by visiting the oldest writing in the world, and … Continue reading

The Lodger

The Lodger

Ok guys, enter another episode like Midnight where pretty much the whole thing involves the Doctor on his own. Well, Amy does pop in every now and again, but it’s pretty much the Doctor and Craig. Yeah, a male companion that isn’t the tagalong of a female one, it’s weird… Anyway, we start off with … Continue reading

Vincent and the Doctor

Vincent and the Doctor

This episode starts out at one of my favorite museums, the Musée D’Orsay in Paris! The Doctor and Amy are taking a look at Van Gogh’s paintings (the Doctor’s probably feeling guilty about the whole Rory thing) when the Doc sees that something’s wrong with his painting The Church at Auvers: there’s a monster in … Continue reading

Cold Blood

Cold Blood

Drum roll please: we’re back on schedule! Yes, that’s right, and only 21 days and 22 episodes away from new episodes on BBC America! And maybe even the BBC itself! Ok, too many exclamation marks, on with the show… We left off on a cliffhanger where everyone except two pissed-off humans and a Rory are … Continue reading

The Hungry Earth

The Hungry Earth

And so starts the weird episodes with the Silurians… One thing you should probably know is that the Silurians are not only an ancient race of lizard-related creatures and aren’t aliens, but they’re also classic Doctor Who “villains.” I put villains in quotes because, well, you can see yourselves whether they’re actually villains… The story … Continue reading

Amy’s Choice

Amy’s Choice

Oh my gosh, guys!  I’m almost back on track with these!  Only one more to go! This episode’s a pretty funny one, and also only one of two episodes where we’ll see Amy pregnant.  Spoilers… We start out with Amy pregnant while cooking, then calling for Rory because she’s going into labor!  Except she isn’t, … Continue reading

The Vampires of Venice

The Vampires of Venice

Today’s episode is our first time travel adventure with Rory!  Well, we did see him in the Prisoner Zero episode, but he didn’t really go traveling with the Doc and Amy. The episode starts off with Amy trying to get it on with the Doctor – it is the night before her wedding, after all, … Continue reading

Flesh and Stone

Flesh and Stone

And we’re back with the Doctor’s big plan!  And the plan is… jump! He destroys the gravity thing and everyone jumps inside the ship and at least momentarily escapes the angels.  But they find a way inside and are still one their tails. And they can’t go any farther because the door is locked.  Isn’t … Continue reading

The Time of Angels

The Time of Angels

Another Rory-less episode arc!  Don’t worry, he’ll be back soon.  I mean, Amy is getting married in the morning…  And by morning, I mean a couple adventures from now… This episode and the next just confirm what I already knew from before: that the Weeping Angels are super creepy. The Doctor and Amy are at … Continue reading
