Re: 5x10 Vincent and the Doctor (Grading/Discussion) SPOILERS!!

Fantastic. Loved it. The most wonderfully affecting of character pieces with an ending that was just perfect, that made a very vital point about depression and the 'bad things' while preserving a happy ending to just the right level of corny cheesiness
The Doctor and Amy were great, but were utterly upstaged by Van Gogh, perfectly cast and might actually rival my former firm favourite Shakespeare among the historical DW 'meet and greet' episodes.
Where it did fall down was the monster of the week - The Shakespeare Code had great interaction with Will as well as having a compelling story with an interesting idea - here, the interaction was better but the story was weak. Still, I found it difficult to particularly care about that, tbh.
