The Doctor is "most probably" giving them a breather, but what's he doing? 10 months go buy for them, but maybe only a couple hours, a few minutes, seconds for the Timelord as he reads a book in the bathtub... He's still 12 hundred, so it's not like it seems that centuries are still passing between visits.
Still, he's seemingly aged about 300 years since he first met Amy and about 100 years since he married River (even if the latter was in a deleted timeline or whatever it was). It's like he's keeping Amy and Rory alive and young from his perspective by visiting their lives at what for him are pretty long intervals. If he'd stayed synchronised with them since The God Complex then it'd probably be the late 23rd or early 24th century.

Could this race be an offshoot of the Orkans? Nanu-nanu.
I got a Mork And Mindy vibe from the ship too. Some kind of metatextual reference would have been nice.
