Doctor Who? Goodbye Amy and Rory

Okay so this doesn't have a thing to do with nail polish, but most of you know I'm a huge Doctor Who fan.

I just have to get this rant out, though. And it does NOT contain what I would call "spoilers" if you haven't seen it.

I'm just NOT a happy camper. I've had my "fights" with Doctor Who in the past, swearing never to watch again. But I've always loved him. There'd never been any REAL danger of me leaving him. And it was never for the same reasons I'm feeling now. It was usually because I didn't want to be without him for so long. I've always been able to turn off logic and let it wash over me. I didn't need it all to make sense all the time. 

But this was just different. 

As I was trying to fall asleep, my brain kept picking it apart. I found myself needing certain things to make better sense than they did, trying to rewrite it for him and not really liking The Doctor being so helpless and clingy and emotionally unstable. MY Doctor would have never behaved that way and MY Doctor would have been able to fix it... or at least made it easier to swallow. MY Doctor would have been the strong one that selflessly gave them up. He would not have been the Doctor I saw in this episode. 

MY Doctor, though he has his weaknesses, (just enough, but not too many so that he's so, um HUMAN) is always going to be the strong one, the one with the universe of knowledge and wisdom and good judgment. Angels Take Manhattan did not have MY Doctor in it at all.

And right or wrong, I will always associate this Doctor with Matt Smith. For the first time in my life, I'm ready for a new Doctor before we're given one. And I realize it's NOT Matt Smith, it's the writers. Matt Smith has actually done quite a good job with what he's been given. But right now I've reverted to a foot-stomping, tantrum-throwing 8 year old and I may need quite a long "time out" before I get over it.

  1. BUT it did finally make sense of his connection with River for me - he missed them so much, that loving her kept their companionship alive for him. I thought it was weak, and a little dull. They deserved better, though the rooftop was semi-epic.

  3. i was thinking about it and if see in a future makes it reality, and i know this was in another time line, but if rory and amy saw themselves at the drill site where they meet the silurians then how can they be gone now? if Amy and rory remember everything that happened in that time line, and they do, then they should have to show up at the drill site in the future shouldn't they?

  6. I cried so much during that episode, it was ridiculous. There have been other episodes that made me cry but this one was heart-wrenching.
    That said, I'm okay with the Pond era coming to an end. It was a good run but I was ready for a new companion and I like the choice.

    You're right about him being whiny and helpless but he's been that for a while - though to be fair, the Tenth Doctor has always been my Doctor, and though Matt Smith wasn't bad, he just didn't compare to him. I wouldn't mind a new Doctor either, though I do imagine there might be a change in dynamics with the new companion that might do him some good.

    I'd like to say my Doctor would've never given up, he would've gotten them out of there, but he didn't get Rose out, did he? (Still, the Angels are hardly the same as the threat Rose's situation posed, right?)
