sprezzatura: (History)
[personal profile] sprezzatura


I would actually quite like to be sent back in time, if my loved ones could join me. As a tragic ending that just... wasn't. Or was that just me?

I guess the idea was more that who can never see them (presumably for timey wimey reasons ... Cause it make NO sense). Although as if there was ever a moment that Amy wasn't going to choose Rory and that life over the doctor (the very delicate subplot hasn't been screaming that!).

Or something. The most I have to say is that I watched it. That all I really have on it. I'm just glad ST; TNG is on repeats

I haven't been very invested in Doctor Who since the David Tennant/Billie Piper series. I usually watch it now because K does. I think even if you don't believe being sent back into the past would be quite cool, it was still a bit of a cop out as a tragic ending.

The reason the Doctor couldn't go back was something to do with creating a second paradox big enough to destro New York.

As someone said in The Guardian - "So why didn't they move to Boston, so he could see them".

Timey Wimey reasons? I thought the Doctor said to Rory, before they jumped, that he would be confined to that room.

I heard the paradox issue ( i just meant that way a lot of BS - and yet more cannon defying at thatzero territory) and in now way closing off the various timelines that have been left open ...this whole set of 5 have stopmed over the cannon.

I agree it was a cop out - and a complete non choice given the character / story arcs (and personally I think it could be kinda nice, but I also think real history is a lot harder than fluff history ( I love victoriana, but frankly life then was a lot harder than now, so...)

Of course history wasn't like a costume drama. I suppose it depends when you pick, but any age or place would have its advantages and disadvantages.

And depending on the time in question, they may even know a few people.

I quite like the idea of River and Canton (plus Canton's fiance) popping over for Thanksgiving etc...

Despite Karen Gillan's comments about leaving no option for "Rose Tyler style cameos", I think it was a lot less final than Rose's exit appeared to be. It's not as though Amy and Rory were sealed in another dimension!

They obviously didn't live out their lives in the room in Winter Quay, anyway.

Why not obviously ? I get the impression that is exactly what they were being set up for ? The angel would have sent Rory to that room when he flung him back and there must be some paradox to create the timey wimey ness ... If that's the case then Amy spent the last five years of her life in that room alone

There was a shot of Amy writing, outside I think. And in the afterword she said they had lived good lives, which does not suggest being shut in a room.

Oh yes ... If stopped paying attention by then. But in that case it makes no sense ! The survivor angel would have no reason to get Rory or to send them back to that time.

Amy had to be able to write / edit / publish the detective novel which means at least some contact with the outside world.
