Question, I've always heard van Gogh's name pronounced as 'go', is that pronunciation just an American thing?
Yes, mostly. Americans usually pronounce it "Van Go", in the UK you usually hear "Van Goff", which is what the Doctor was calling him, the French call him "Van Gog". The Bill Nighy character was pronouncing it correctly: [vɑɲˈʝɔ]
