My Review of Doctor Who's: "Time"

Written by Steven Moffat
Directed by Richard Senior

Amy 1: “Ooh, I’d give you a driving licence anytime.”
Amy 2: “I bet you would.”
The Doctor: “Oh this is how it all ends … Pond flirting with herself. True love at last. Oh, sorry Rory.”
Rory: “Absolutely no problem at all.”

And here is the second part of our Comic Relief sketch and there’s more innuendo to laugh at/being disgusted by/whatever floats your boat. Amy flirting with herself – why is it that some viewers have an issue with this? If it had been Jack or maybe River doing the same, I bet there wouldn’t have been as much annoyance from certain folks online.

Personally for me, I found it amusing. Why shouldn’t Amy flirt with herself? She’s an attractive girl and better that than eternal self-loathing, right? And Rory seemed pretty happy with the idea of two versions of his wife as well. On a serious note, we did see future versions of the Doctor and Rory, so it’s not like this was completely all about Amy either.

The resolution of fixing the problem with the wibbly lever was undercut with more humour as well but given that this entire sketch was for charity, I can’t complain, though I got a big laugh out of the Doctor telling Amy to put some trousers on. More for Rory’s agreement than anything else.

- Amy was about to ask the Doctor a big question in the first part but she didn’t get the chance to in this one. Will she ask that question in Series 6?
- Series 6 will open up with a two parter called The Impossible Astronaut and Day Of The Moon, scheduled for the Easter weekend. A new trailer for Series 6 is due today and next Saturday.
- Poor Rory for getting slapped. At least he wasn’t killed this time around.
- Over 74 million was raised for Comic Relief this year. Brilliant!

A great second part, “Time” wrapped this up nicely and now with the advent of Series 6 drawing nearer and nearer, I can’t wait to see what happens next for our TARDIS trio.

Rating: 9 out of 10.
