Just had a thought regarding the ten years. Which time periods are counted here for Amy`s doctor live?

Starting with the Eleventh Hour.

Surely not the "5 minutes" time he got a bot wrong.

Does the Atraxi/Prisoner Zero adventure already count?

Cause the Doctor went off to fly in the ne TARDIS and missed 2 years of her live again.

So only 8 years would remain.

Then they are on continously until A Good Man Goes to War when River drops them home. Let's say this was more or less real time, so 2 years.Do we know how long the Doctor was away?

Next big break is after Wedding of River Song until the end of Widow, Wardrobe... which covers another 2 years?

Pond Life is what 5 months?

That leaves 3.5 years, one of which is covered by the latest episodes...

Did I get that about right?
The chronology of the series is a bit murky. I think they've botched it a few times, but ultimately The Doctor has known Amy since she was about 7 years old, and she appears to be in her mid-to-late-twenties. It wouldn't be far off base to say 10+ years but is likely more.

I'll try to do a full accounting of the time that has passed since The Eleventh Hour once the angels episode has aired.
