^ Seems a bit fanwanky, IMHO. Didn't his character have a family? And was Karen Gillan's character actually Amy too?
The Moff is guilty of doing some fanwanky things himself.
Granted I don't expect them to do anything like that, though when I read it it brought a smile to my face and I thought it'd be a neat reveal. And yes, his character in that episode did have a family.
