Doctor Who 32.07 Amy’s Choice (2010)

Five years after the Venice outing, the Doctor returns to the village where Amy is married and expecting a child. Then all three of them fall asleep and wake up on the TARDIS.

8/10

So if last week’s vampires were typically useless how do we improve on that? How about lawnmower wielding OAPs that have an eye in their mouth that turns you to dust? This is a snappy, imaginative, interesting episode with two sets of fun baddies: the afore-mentioned malevolent pensioners and the Dream Lord played with charismatic glee by Toby Jones. It gets the viewer involved by asking the characters and the audience the same question – which world is the real one? – and distracts the audience from the first answer that will have popped into their head (SPOILERthey’re both not real) by using a powerful emotional situation involving our heroine being told to choose which of her “boys” she would ultimately pick.

This Doctor Who episode contains unpleasant scenes.
