Yeah I was wondering that too. Between that and the constant complains about "getting old," it seems like they really want to play with the idea of the Doctor slowing down and getting close to the end of his lifespan.

The only thing that would have been better than seeing Amy's name on the sunflowers would have been to see one additional, NEW painting by van Gogh -- of an unidentified red-headed woman.
That surprised me too, considering how Vincent seemed to paint damn near everything.

But you just know that 'Who was Amy?' is now one of the great mysteries of the art world. Hotly debated, with many books written on the subject.

Speaking of translating, can someone tell me what Amy said when they're about to leave and the Doctor says "Are you thinking what I'm thinking?"
"I'm thinking I may need some food or something..."

And speaking of missed lines. I missed part of what Vincent said when Amy asked him about liking sunflowers.


"Always somewhere between living and dying...something...something...to the sun. A little disgusting."
I can't get iPlayer to work at the moment but I think it's something along the lines of "dying, rotting and decaying as it tries to reach the sun"

Why does new Who have its pieces of technology looking so silly? Like it's ashamed to be too serious in its sci-finess.
You've seen the original series right and how silly did that look , personally the charm of Who is that it plays out not as a serious SCI FI but a silly one.

I also wanted to add that I love the bit where the Doctor was waiting for the alien to show up while Van Gogh was painting the church and he was extremely bored and fidgety and said, "so this is how time passes" or something. The Doctor is always on the move and there is never any downtime in his life.

Wow, people! Watch the first 30 seconds again! Something's rushing at Vincent in the wheat, and it ain't crows!

I think there's going to be a big reveal in Ep 13.
I'm pretty sure that was supposed to be hinting at this week's monster, nothing else.
Ah, now, see...

I think it was after he'd met the Doctor.

Because the second time around Dr Black said it was the last painting he did, whereas the first time around he said it was one of the last.

I think this is going to pan out differently than we think, like the Doctor/jacket thing in the Angels ep.

Well, I hope it does.

And as Terry Pratchett says, a man who uses a lot of italics needs to be watched. Preferably from a safe distance...

^^ It is a character piece though more than a plot-driven one, I could see that not appealing (or working) for everyone as it relies on one getting invested in the characters.
Exactly. This episode's appeal is more based on whether a given individual can enjoy a story that's character-oriented rather than plot-oriented, not on gender or original series fanhood.
You may be right. Hubby is definitely more plot oriented while I have to like or feel some connection to the characters.

He'll watch something just for action, special effects, overall themes, etc. I don't really give a rat's patootie about that if I don't like any of the characters, the dialogue, their development and so on.

Re: 5x10 Vincent and the Doctor (Grading/Discussion) SPOILERS!!

I enjoyed the episode...I thought it had a lot of charm in it. What was the device that the Doctor used to view the monster though? He referenced where he got it from but is it a Classic DW device or something new? I loved seeing the First and Second Doctor's as well again and it does seem like Moffat loves referencing them. I think he's professed his enjoyment of Classic Who several times in interviews and statements (indeed I think his audio commentaries have stated he loves old Who). Is next week's episode the one that will feature the build a tardis console winner or whatever that contest was?

Something new, but he said he got it from his Godmother...who had two heads.

And bad breath.

Twice.

If a twitgadget like that had appeared in old Who, the effort would have been made to make it look advanced, even if the budget may not have been able to match that. Now that we have a show with adequate funding, we instead get some hose, handlebars, and a wingmirror. It's as if they're scared that if it looked too sci-fi, people would switch off. As with the absurdity of the ghost thingy and 3D specs in Army of Ghosts/Doomsday.

This can hardly be a new complaint. The new show's been full of twitgadgetary since Ecclestone took over, none moreso than in the TARDIS itself.

Knowing some of the folks I know -- I can't imagine how many dissertations would have been done on it.
