Re: Was Amy's "present" always the future?
I suppose, after last week's episode, this could have been an attempt by the Doctor to be a part of the Ponds' lives, rather than the other way around. Instead of grabbing Amy and Rory and taking them to the ass end of the universe for an adventure, he joined them for a quiet afternoon in Central Park.
That's how I understood it. But why go four years back in time for that? Ah well, Doctors will be Doctors, I suppose.
Now all I want is to warn earth: watch Farscape... and share the wonders I've seen.
It's Tolkien, not Tolkein.
