  • Years from now, when we're watching the adventures of the 15th Doctor, and the greatest Dr. Who episodes of all time are debated expect this story to be one of the first (if not the first) mentioned.


    Despiteall the stunning visuals, the slam bang action, the pitch perfect performancesand somebrain bending time travel concepts; this is first and foremost a love story. And like all great love stories, the fear of lossgrips its heart. In a season that has featured some amazing ideas and some capitvating stories, suddenly out of left field comes a stand alone episode that may be the perfect Dr. Who story. I won't bother to reiterate the plot orits manyhighlights. See it yourself. Suffice it to say that in a culmination of the many emotional threads running through the Amy/Rory relationship, with this storywe have witnesseda powerful and heartbreakingexploration of true love.
