  1. I wish I could give you a hug right now, Diamanda. (Even though obviously some time since recording the podcast has passed.)

  2. There was two paradox’s which occured in Fathers day. The first was Rose saving her father, the second was holding herself as a baby, essentially the same object occupying the same space. Different incarnations of the doctor prob don’t count. Rose seeingh herself was never a cause although was stated that them being in the same place was dangerous as in her past she obviously never saw herself

  3. I was excited to talk about this one, and I’m still going to talk about it today. The Girl Who Waited is still my favorite Doctor Who story of all time! This is Terror of the Vervoids done right. The idea of seeing Amy Pond in I think her 60s was great, and I would of love to see more of that Amy. As a matter in fact, I would of love to see either an audio drama, comic books, or even novels on what if Rory accepted the older Amy and see the adventures that she would have taken. The other thing that I love about this one is that its only Amy, Rory, and the Doctor, and nobody else of organic, breathable life. I said all of that just to be specific. I can agree with Omega that Amy can still speak in English. I picture her speaking to either the interface or the Rory robot like they did in Castaway, where Tom Hanks talks to a Volleyball. Seeing Rory struggle to get Amy back through the older Amy was another aspect that I like. If you fail to try and save someone within 36 years, and hate the one who didn’t know that was going to happen, it would be hard to convince someone like that to help you. After all, she has considered those 36 years as hell, and her progress within that planet shows, from her making her very own hiding place, to her behavior and feelings towards the Doctor. The best part for me was when both young Amy and old Amy were talking to each other as one of my best moments of the episode. That, and learning that both Amy and Rory’s first kiss was dancing the Macarena was just adorable! And yes, I do like the ending of this episode too.

    ============SPOILER LINE!!!!!==============

    The fact that the Doctor had to lie in order to bring in Amy was truly a painful moment to see, and it still worked! Watching both old Amy and Rory saying their goodbye and how old Amy accepts it with how it was both touching and smart really made it not so cheesy, dumb, or even cliche either. And it all ends with old Amy wanting to see Scotland one more time before she dies was done dignified and believable, unlike what Trial of a Timelord did with Peri.

    =======SPOILER LINE ENDS!!!!!!==============

    So, yeah. I like this one more than The Deadly Assassin, The Caves of Androzani, The Mind Robber, and even Remembrance of the Daleks. I really do hope that in time this will be considered to be one of the greats of Doctor Who stories, along with The Caves of Androzani and The Deadly Assassin, because I do believe, with all of my two Doctor Who hearts, that this is the best of the best!

    …….for now.
