August 30 2022 marks ten years since the release of Pond Life Episode Four - July:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ikv0QbubV7Y

After turning up in the previous episode, the Ood has become a guest for Amy and Rory with the Doctor promising on the phone to pick the Ood up and therefore taking the Ood off their hands.
In the meantime the Ood has become Amy and Rory's servant because serving is what the Ood does, a servant that they didn't ask for!

August 31 2022 marks ten years since Pond Life Episode Five - August:

Finale.
By phone, the Doctor leaves a message to Amy and Rory that he dropped the Ood home as well as riding a horse in 11th century Coventry and inventing pasta a few centuries early.
He also says that he came by their place once but they weren't there.
The Doctor senses that there is something with them and with his sonic screwdriver deletes the message he just left.
In fact a brief silent clip showing Rory walking away from Amy in anger. This problem would be fully addressed in Asylum of the Daleks a day later on September 1 2012.
This ends with Amy coming home having just missed the Doctor's now deleted message.
Seeing there is no message on the phone and standing by it, she says, in reference to the Doctor, that "we need you raggedy man" before saying "I need you."

In the silent clip she wears a black leather jacket presumably the same one she would be seen wearing in Asylum of the Daleks.

The last scene has her wearing a blue-white striped jumper and a light brown coat.

The blue-white jumper is presumably the same one that she wears in Dinosaurs on the Spaceship which like Pond Life was written by future showrunner Chris Chibnall.
The light brown coat seems to be the same one that she wears in her swansong The Angels Take Manhattan.

According to Wikipedia, before it became the name of a Doctor Who mini-episode series, Pond Life was used as the name of an animated series in 1996-2000 and before that as the name of a 1992 play.
The 1992 play with the Pond Life name would be adapted into a film released in 2018.
Marking ten years since the release of Doctor Who's Pond Life.

September 1 2022 marks ten years since the original broadcast of Asylum of the Daleks which opened NuWho Series 7 a season that starts in 2012 but stretches into 2013 as part of the celebration of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary year in the latter year.
Written by showrunner Steven Moffat and is the first of five episodes starting with Asylum of the Daleks which makes up the first part of Series 7.
A remarkable fact about Series 7 of NuWho is that unlike previous seasons, all episodes are made up of single episode storylines.
Series 7, which would become the last for Matt Smith as the Doctor, was the only season to hold this distinction until Jodie Whittaker's first season in 2018.
These first batch of episodes of Series 7 would become the last for Karen Gillan as Amy and Arthur Darvill as Rory.
Asylum of the Daleks marks Jenna-Louise Coleman's Doctor Who debut (before she was credited as Jenna Coleman) with her playing Oswin Oswald.
This would ultimately set off the mystery that is the Impossible Girl Clara Oswald also played by Jenna.
Jenna was announced as the new companion Clara beforehand who would make her debut in the 2012 Christmas Special ultimately named The Snowmen and so her appearance as Oswin in Asylum of the Daleks came as a surprise to viewers with the press and fans who got to see it at a preview screening succeeded in not leaking this very fact.
At the time I expressed no doubt that there would be an explanation, narrative-wise, in the the 2012 Christmas Special on why Clara and Oswin look alike.
Prior to being cast as Oswin/Clara, Jenna had auditioned for Mels for Let's Kill Hitler before it went to Nina Toussaint-White. (Taking this moment to digest the thought that Jenna could have been Karen's daughter!)
Asylum of the Daleks becomes the first Dalek story to open a season since 1988's Remembrance of the Daleks.
Asylum of the Daleks starts with the Doctor visiting the Dalek home planet Skaro.
Apart from a planet-wide view of Skaro at the start of the 1996 TV Movie, the previous time the surface of the Dalek home planet was seen was in 1979's Destiny of the Daleks.
On Skaro the Doctor meets with a woman called Darla in a big Dalek-shaped building but it turned out to be a trap with the Doctor captured by the Daleks.
Terrifyingly we also see a Dalek eyestalk coming out of Darla's forehead.
The Daleks soon captured Amy and Rory as well.
When we first see Amy here she is doing a photoshoot and she looks glamourous at it.
It also has Amy meeting Rory there as she signed divorce paper. Troubles between Amy and Rory had been hinted at, at the end of Pond Life.
At the photoshoot, the Phpptshoot PA was played by Zac Fox.
However due to an oversight Fox's name wasn't included in the end credits.
This was later rectified when his name and character name got included in The Angels Take Manhattan end credits even though he wasn't in that episode at all.
Also at the photoshoot was Cassandra, Amy's make-up artist and she was played by Naomi Ryan.
She and Karen would later be in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1.
I had first seen Naomi Ryan in her principal role in the TV series Mile High (2003-05) and it looks like she has retired from acting since 2017.
The Doctor, Amy and Rory have been brought to the Parliament of the Daleks, something that has never been heard or seen before.
There has been a Dalek Emperor and Dalek Supreme but with the appearance of the Dalek Parliament this sees for the first time a Dalek Prime Minister.
Asylum of the Daleks including the Dalek Parliament sees every version of the Daleks that has ever appeared up to this point.
The previous Dalek story is Victory of the Daleks which introduced the bulky Paradigm Daleks and although it gave a hint to a follow-up to this, Asylum of the Daleks is not a sequel to that earlier episode apparently because of the bad reception given to the Paradigm Daleks although Paradigm Daleks are included in the Dalek Parliament.
In being at the Dalek Parliament, the Doctor was resigned to his and his friends' fate as he was prepared for their extermination only for the Daleks to say unison for him to help them,
The problem the Daleks have is the Asylum which is what they called their planet that houses insane Daleks and its force field have been ruptured when the starliner the Alaska crashed tp the Asylum.
It was at this time they got into sound-only communication with Oswin Oswald, the entertainment manager of the Alaska and its only survivor.
When we first see Oswin she was relaxing in her quarters and cooking a souffle....unsuccessfully.
She was also listening to Carmen, a musical and it was Carmen that the Doctor, Amy, Rory and the Daleks listened to in the Dalek Parliament when they stumbled upon communicating with Oswin.
The Doctor said he had a part in that musical and when Oswin said she was baking a souffle the Doctor called her Souffle Girl.
The Dalek Prime Minister says that they had decided to sent the Predator of the Daleks to deal with the problem at hand and knew immediately before the Doctor that the Predator was the Daleks' new name to the Doctor.
With the problem at hand the Daleks sent the Doctor, Amy and Rory to the Asylum with the purpose of deactivating the force field so that the Asylum can then be destroyed.
As well as the task to deactivate the force field the Doctor promises Oswin to rescue her.
In the midst of all this Amy and Rory sorts out their problems.
When the Doctor eventually comes to Oswin he finds that she is a Dalek!
It is therefore revealed that Oswin has been captured by the Daleks and converted into one of them.
Unable to cope with this new reality, Oswin still thinks of herself as human.
Incidentally Jenna as Clara would get inside a Dalek in The Witch's Familiar also written by Moffat.
It is important to note that Oswin has seen the Doctor's face through a viewscreen but at no time does the Doctor ever see Oswin's and this becomes significant later on when The Snowmen came around three months later in Christmas 2012.
Oswin soon gets over this distress of this revelation of her being a Dalek and deactivate the force field.
In her parting words to the Doctor:
"Run, you clever boy. And remember."
The Doctor with Amy and Rory teleported out of the Asylum in time before it got destroyed.
Whilst on the Asylum the Doctor came close to being exterminated by a couple of Daleks but was saved when Oswin programmed these Daleks to forget him.
When the Doctor came back to the Dalek Parliament, the Daleks have no memories of him, Oswin had erased their memories of him as well.
Via the TARDIS, the Doctor leaves the Daleks kept asking "Doctor who?" and the Doctor says that they never going to stop asking!
Eight months after first seeing Asylum of the Daleks, I saw the movie Penelope and this had the main female and male characters played by Christina Ricci and James McAvoy initially communicated in separated rooms with the former only seeing the latter’s face and the latter only hearing the former’s face.
This therefore led me to remark that it rather brought to mind Asylum of the Daleks in which the Eleventh Doctor and Oswin only communicated by intercom. Funnily enough someone beforehand had said of Jenna looking like the said Christina Ricci.

September 8 2022 marks ten years since the original broadcast of Dinosaurs on a Spaceship.
Written by future showrunner Chris Chibnall.
Playing the villain Solomon here is David Bradley.
He and Matt Smith had worked together before in The Sarah Jane Adventures story Death of the Doctor in which the Doctor played the Doctor while Bradley had a voice only role as the Shansheeth.
Therefore Dinosaurs on a Spaceship marks the first time that Bradley has shown his face in the Whoniverse.
Subsequent to Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, Bradley played First Doctor actor William Hartnell in An Adventure In Space and Time where he was briefly reunited with Smith as Smith made a cameo there as the Eleventh Doctor.
Bradley then fully got to play the First Doctor in The Doctor Falls & Twice Upon a Time as well as Big Finish productions.
Chibnall's previous story was The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood which marked the NuWho debut of the Silurians and while Dinosaurs on a Space is not a sequel to that earlier story it does however feature a Silurian Ark which provides a plot element to it.
Dinosaurs on a Spaceship briefly has a Silurian, given the Silurian Ark, with Richard Hope in a cameo as Bleytal and he had played a different Silurian, the scientist Malohkeh, a role he then briefly reprised in The Wedding of River Song by showrunner Steven Moffat.
No doubt not by coincidence Bradley, Hope as well as Arthur Darvill would later be in the Broadchurch TV series created by Chibnall.
Dinosaurs on a Spaceship also has voice-only guest stints by comedic duo David Mitchell and Robert Webb with them voicing robots on the said spaceship.
Dinosaurs on a Spaceship begins in Egypt 1334 BC when the Doctor had just helped out the real-life Queen Nefertiti (soon to be nicknamed as Nefi and played by Riann Steele), details of which was never specified on-screen.
Nefi wanted to express her gratitude to a very nervous Doctor in a certain way and ended up being in the TARDIS with him.
At the same time the Doctor received a call from the Indian Space Agency and is told that the titular spaceship will crash into Earth in six hours and the ISA intends to destroy it with missiles unless the Doctor stops it first.
With Nefi, the Doctor gets more help in stopping this spaceship crashing into Earth and picks up game hunter Riddell, a friend of his at the African Plains in 1902 AD.
Riddell is played by Rupert Graves and he had played Lestrade in Sherlock co-created by Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat.
Nefi and Riddell, however are not enough as the Doctor then picks up Amy and Rory with Amy later saying that she and Rory hadn't seen the Doctor for ten months.
The Doctor picks up Amy and Rory by materialising the TARDIS around them but by picking them up this way he accidentally brought Rory's dad Brian as well as he was with them at that time.
Brian Williams is played by a real-life Williams, Mark Williams.
In response to a piece on Dinosaurs on a Spaceship I wrote some time ago, the presence of an older man, in Brian, in this adventure has been suggested as a precursor for Chibnall later as showrunner developing Thirteenth Doctor companion Graham O'Brien and in my own observation I just realised that O'Brien is a variant in name to Brian
Given that a Williams character was played by a real-life Williams, ironically the Doctor did not acknowledge the Williams name to Brian as he at one time called Brian, Brian Pond and Brian rightly saying that he is not a Pond!
Dinosaurs on a Spaceship is the first of two appearances by Brian with Chibnall bringing him back two episodes later The Power of Three.
With all this gang (which happens to be the Doctor's word for it) together on the said spaceship they soon found the said dinosaurs on it.
As the others run, the Doctor stands there as he expressed in excitement what it says in the episode "Dinosaurs on a spaceship" before Amy comes and grabs him and makes a run for it.
Amy shushed others for talking when they were hiding from the dinosaurs and it seems Chibnall had thought it was Amy's turn to do the shushing as Amy got shushed at by Malohkeh in The Hungry Earth.
When the Doctor met Solomon, Solomon was listening to Fantasia in F minor.
This piece of music was played by four hands with the Doctor saying he was hands three and four for this music!
This is the second episode in a row in which the Doctor says that he took part in a piece of music with the Doctor saying in the previous episode Asylum of the Daleks that he took part in Carmen.
In a conversation with Solomon, the Doctor says that he is probably Sagittarius.
Undoubtedly this was an in-joke to the fact that November 23, the second chronological date which falls under Sagittarius was when Doctor Who made its debut in 1963.
When the Doctor and Rory found the spaceship has no weapons, Rory asked "What ship doesn't have weapons?"
Well the TARDIS is a spaceship herself and surely in all the time that he has been in the TARDIS, Rory would have noticed that the TARDIS have no weapons as well.
The situation was ultimately resolved when the ISA's missiles which were programmed to hit the spaceship got tricked by the Doctor to hit Solomon's ship instead with Solomon still in it!
Meanwhile Amy and Riddell got to shoot down dinosaurs with stun guns while Rory and Brian got to pilot the spaceship due to them being father and son and making them from the same gene chain, the only way it could be piloted.
Before all was resolved Amy expressed his worry to the Doctor of him never coming back with the Doctor saying she will there to the end of him or as Amy says vice versa.
Undoubtedly a sad foreshadowing what is to come in The Angels Take Manhattan.
With all resolved Nefi goes with Riddell to his time instead of her going back to her own time.
This is a reflection of the fact that the real Queen Nefertiti had disappeared from history with no one today knowing how, where and when exactly she had died.
Virtually the same approach had previously been used with Captain Henry Avery, another real life figure who had disappeared from history, in The Curse of the Black Spot.
With this being the tenth anniversary of Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, I coincidentally this day saw a dinosaur on an ad on a passing bus but as the bus travelled quickly I did not see what the ad was about and my wife Karen was kind of in this territory again earlier this year 2022 in her movie The Bubble.

September 15 2022 marks ten years since the original broadcast of A Town Called Mercy.
This guest stars Ben Browder and is known to sci fi fans for his lead role of John Crichton in Farscape and later on as Cameron Mitchell in Stargate SG-1 and thus making him someone who has been in both the Doctor Who and Stargate universes.
In A Town Called Mercy, Browder plays Isaac, the Marshal of Mercy.
With them together here in A Town Called Mercy, Browder and my wife Karen Gillan would later be in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Playing Abraham, the local undertaker of Mercy is Garrick Hagon.
Hagon had been in classic Who in The Mutants playing Ky.
In between his Who TV appearances, Hagon did a Big Finish, The Axis of Insanity playing the Jester.
As Abraham, the undertaker, Hagon got to literally measure Matt Smith as the Doctor due to the possibility of having a coffin prepared for him.
Voicing the narrator, albeit in A Town Called Mercy is Lorelei King.
King's on-screen work included a recurring role in Mile High which had Naomi Ryan as a principal cast member and Naomi Ryan was in Asylum of the Daleks which came two episodes before A Town Called Mercy.
Written by Toby Whithouse, A Town Called Mercy is a Doctor Who Western and Doctor Who had a Western before in 1966's The Gunfighters.
However showrunner Steven Moffat instructed Whithouse not to go back to that previous Western when writing A Town Called Mercy.
Incidentally in The Gunfighters it had the song Ballad of the Last Chance Saloon which was sung by Lynda Baron (who sadly died earlier this year on March 5 2022) .
Like Hagon, Baron also turned up in NuWho in her case playing Val in Closing Time which was five episodes before A Town Called Mercy.
While Baron herself wasn't in A Town Called Mercy it seemed somewhat ironic that A Town Called still got to have another classic Who guest star, in Hagon, in it.
Whithouse is one of three writers, the others being Moffat and Mark Gatiss, to have written for all three Matt Smith seasons.
For Smith's first season he wrote The Vampires of Venice and for Smith's second he wrote The God Complex.
The Doctor, Amy and Rory found themselves in the said town Mercy in 1870 and unsurprisingly by mistake as the Doctor was aiming instead for the Day of the Dead festival in Mexico.
The Doctor, Amy and Rory enter Mercy despite a sign saying "Keep Out".
The Doctor takes that sign as a suggestion. Yes Doctor that is a good lesson to teach the kids watching this.
On looking at Mercy, the Doctor finds it anachronistic such as the use of electricity ten years before it was discovered.
Ultimately it is revealed the reason for the Keep Out sign is that no one has been able to leave because of the presence there of the Gunslinger, a cyborg, who demands that an alien doctor who has been hiding there be given to him before he would be willing to leave.
This alien doctor is one who created the Gunslinger and this alien doctor is why Mercy displays the said anachronisms.
The addition of three people in the Doctor, Amy and Rory in Mercy means that food supplies would run out more quickly.
The people of Mercy mistakenly thought the Doctor was this alien doctor that the Gunslinger was after and therefore took the Doctor to the Gunslinger but the Doctor got saved by Mercy marshal Isaac.
Isaac then took the Doctor, Amy and Rory to his office where the time travellers discovered the alien doctor in question.
His name is Kahler-Jex and he had crash landed onto Earth years earlier.
Since coming into Mercy, Jex has become the town doctor which included him curing an outbreak of cholera and the electricity came out of the remains of his crashed ship.
The Doctor asked why the Gunslinger is after Jex and this is when Isaac explains why the town is called Mercy as it is about giving second chances and did not matter how first chances got wasted.
The Doctor sneaks out to get to the TARDIS but ended going to Jex's ship instead and to his horror found from watching a file that Jex was one of several scientists who made cyborgs including the Gunslinger as weapons on their war-torn homeworld.
The Gunslinger's motivation was to killed all these scientists and Jex is now the last remaining one.
The Doctor returns to Isaac's office and expressed his anger to Jex on what he has discovered about him.
So angry that the Doctor drags Jex to face the Gunslinger.
He even points a gun at Jex.
Amy horrified on what the Doctor is doing shoots a gun in the air to get his attention.
A key and funny moment with this is when Amy after firing a gun in the air and saying the Doctor had been taking stupid lessons, meaning lessons on being stupid, since she and Rory last saw him.
Also the people nearby were very nervous with Amy's handling of a gun leading to Isaac to say that everybody who isn't American to drop your gun!
My wife Karen would eventually know. character-wise that is, how to handle a gun when she played an assassin in Gunpowder Milkshake.
The Doctor mentions the Master and this is curious as Matt Smith did not get to meet the Master.
Whithouse however would have the Master, in the form of Missy, in his later episode Lie of the Land.
The Doctor then changes his mind of handing Jex to the Gunslinger but it is too late as the Gunslinger came by and aimed to kill Jex.
Jex's life got saved when Isaac got in the way of the lethal shot and dies from it.
The Gunslinger then leaves and promises to come back for Jex the next day at noon. (Hardly a subtle reference to that classic reference High Noon).
The dying Jex makes the Doctor his successor as marshal and the now Marshal Doctor makes Amy his deputy
The fateful noon comes and instead of a gun, which the Doctor abhors in using, he presents his sonic screwdriver when facing off the Gunslinger but it is all a distraction for Jex to get back to his ship and leaves.
Through his ship's intercom Jex asked the Gunslinger where he is from on their home planet.
The Doctor is shocked that Jex is asking this question to the Gunslinger here and now when Jex should be leaving.
Whithouse had previously written doing something here and now in The Vampires of Venice in a conversation between the Doctor and Rory.
Jex asked the Gunslinger if he would go back to his hometown and the Gunslinger says he could not as he is now a monster and Jex says that so is he.
Jex feels remorseful for what he has done and sets his ship to self-destruct killing himself in the process.
With Jex dead, the Gunslinger found that he now has no purpose until the Doctor came up one for him that is the Gunslinger to succeed him as Marshal since it is now time for the Doctor, Amy and Rory to leave.
Before Amy says that they would like to go home for a while due to worries of friends noticing her and Rory aging faster than them, the Doctor suggested for their next trip to see all the monkeys and dogs they sent into space in the fifties and sixties and that they will never guess what really happened to them.
A shame that this suggestion wasn't taken as I would have love to have known what became of those monkeys and dogs.
Incidentally after Doctor Who, my wife Karen would return to a Western setting in the movie In a Valley of Violence and in A Town Called Mercy the Doctor says that violence doesn't end violence, it extends it.
That sounds like the description of In A Valley of Violence.
In another commonality with my wife Karen's subsequent work, A Town Called Mercy has the Doctor talking to a horse and Jumanji: The Next Level featuring my wife Karen also has a talking horse.
Arthur Darvill also returned to a Western setting when he was later in Legends of Tomorrow in the episodes The Magnificent Eight & The Legion of Doom.
The Magnificent Eight has Darvill in a town called Salvation which does not sound that much different to Mercy.
A Town Called Mercy marked the debut of members of the Kahler race and to date it is only storyline about the Kahler although one is on the Harmony and Redemption in The Husbands of River Song.
A Town Called Mercy had an alien doctor Kahler-Jex hiding in the said town when he was found by the Doctor, Amy and Rory.
If anyone wonders what it was like for Kahler-Jex to hide in Mercy before or if he was never found by the Doctor and co and the Gunslinger, Resident Alien probably would give a picture to this.
Resident Alien (2021-present) is too about an alien doctor (well more or less) hiding in a town.
While Khaler-Jex was living in A Town Called Mercy, the Resident Alien lives in a town called Patience. Mercy and patience are both names of feelings.
Resident Alien is based on the comic book of the same name which made its debut in April 2012, coincidentally just five months before A Town Called Mercy came on in September.

September 22 2022 marks ten years since the original broadcast of The Power of Three, the penultimate episode for Amy and Rory.

Written by future showrunner Chris Chibnall.

As showrunner in 2022, Chibnall has written another Power episode, the upcoming Jodie Whittaker finale The Power of the Doctor.

Mark Williams makes the second of two appearances as Rory's dad Brian, having previously appeared two episodes earlier Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, also written by Chibnall.

Subsequent to playing Brian, Williams played the titular character in the Father Brown TV series and incidentally his Doctor Who son Arthur Darvill would also played a priest in Broadchurch created by Chibnall.

So like Father, like son.

The Power of Three marks the debut by Jemma Redgrave, a member of the Redgrave clan, as Kate Stewart or in actual fact Kate Lethbridge-Stewart, the daughter of the legendary, but also sadly late, Brigadier.

As Kate explains to the Doctor she dropped the Lethbridge from her name as she did not want any favours and she is now the head of UNIT, an organisation that her late father was once in charge of.

Although this is the first time that Kate has appeared in the TV series she has a long history prior to this and Jemma Redgrave was not the first person to have played her.

Kate was first mentioned in Doctor Who and the Cave-Monsters, the novelisation of The Silurians and she was first played by Beverley Cressman in the video spin-off dramas Downtime & Daemos Rising when she still had the Lethbridge in her name.

It is probable that Chibnall got the name Kate from The Silurians novelisation as he didn't seem to be aware that Kate had been depicted in the said video spin-off dramas.

Reading from DWM’s The Doctor Who Companion – The Eleventh Doctor Volume 6 Chibnall says when recalling watching scenes in the 1989 serial Battlefield of the retired Brigadier at home with his wife Doris that one thought crossed his mind:
“There has to be a daughter who’s off at university somewhere.”


At the time I did wonder why Beverley Cressman didn't reprise Kate in The Power of Three and I surmised that the aforementioned video dramas were made by Reeltime Pictures and were not sanctioned by the BBC and the BBC did not allow casting continuity originally established by Reeltime Pictures. Another fact I took into account was that Beverley Cressman had not done much televisual work, her last being Daemos Rising in 2004.

Although Jemma Redgrave would go on to play Kate in a number of episodes she would not be in another Chibnall-penned episode until the last two episodes of Flux in 2021 with Chibnall now showrunner.

In fact she would also be in that other Chibnall Power episode The Power of the Doctor perhaps making Jemma Redgrave the only person to be in both these Power episodes.

Playing the villain the Shakri, is Steven Berkoff and with this appearance makes him a member of a club of actors who has been in both Doctor Who and Star Trek.

For Star Trek, he was in the DS9 episode Business as Usual.


Although uncredited, The Power of Three has cameos by Professor Brian Cox and Lord Alan Sugar as themselves.

Professor Cox would later present The Science of Doctor Who documentary as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations in 2013.

The Power of Three starts with a narration by Amy with flashes of past adventures as Amy explains that whenever she and Rory joined in on the Doctor's travels, they become part of his life but he hasn't stuck long enough to become part of theirs.

She said that changed with the year of the slow invasion when cubes arrived around the world and that is when the Doctor stayed with them.

After the title sequence, we hear a voice on the answering machine with a message to Amy from Len Opticians that her new glasses are ready to be picked up.

Amy would be wearing these glasses in the next episode, her swansong, The Angels Take Manhattan, no doubt a subtle forshadowing to it.

Just as the Doctor, Amy and Rory are wondering what the cubes are, Amy and Rory's house gets invaded by soldiers and these soldiers are from UNIT.

This is where Kate comes in, introducing herself as Kate Stewart, the audience would not know that she is the Brig's daughter until later on when Kate, the Doctor and Amy were at UNIT HQ in the Tower of London with the Doctor revealing to Kate that he knows who she is.

Kate explains what has happened since the cubes arrived including the cubes getting their own Twitter account.

The Doctor reacts unpleasantly to the mention of Twitter and I read at the time that this reflects Matt Smith's personal dislike of Twitter.

However Smith did eventually join Twitter in 2020.


The Doctor suggests the Cubes be observed and see what they do.


However four days has passed and nothing has happened to the Cubes much to the Doctor's impatience.

The Doctor said he doesn't do patience and he needs to be busy.

Out of frustration, Amy tells the Doctor to get busy while she and Rory watches the Cubes.

The Doctor does various activities such as mowing the lawn and playing football.

It seems like it has taken the Doctor a lot of time to do these activities but Rory reveals that the Doctor has been doing them for an hour!

Amy calls this The Year of the Slow Invasion because nothing has happened to the Cubes for a year with people now taking their presence for granted

During this year the Eleventh Doctor, Amy and Rory, whilst watching Lord Alan Sugar in The Apprentice, with appearances by the Cubes (!), had fish fingers and custard, harking back to fish custards' debut in The Eleventh Hour which is also the debut for this said trio.

It was during this scene the Doctor said that he invented Yorkshire Pudding much to Rory's disbelief!

Also during this year the Doctor took Amy and Rory on travels, intended to be a short break from the Cubes but ended up lasting for seven weeks.

The first of these trips we the viewer sees is the Doctor taking Amy and Rory with him to the Savoy Hotel's opening night in 1890.
However this ended up with them having to stop Zygons, who had replaced half the staff, from trying to remove their spaceship from underneath the hotel.

The Zygons aren't seen here and would not make their NuWho debut until The Day of the Doctor the following year for Doctor Who's 50th anniversary in 2013.

Another trip had them in the presence of an unseen Henry VIII when Amy accidentally married him.

Later on this had me confused because in the previous episode A Town Called Mercy, the Doctor said that Rory had accidentally dropped a mobile phone charger in one of Henry's en suites.

This made me wondered whether The Power of Three took place before A Town Called Mercy.

However I read this from TARDIS Wiki:
"According to volume 71 of The Complete History, though not made clear in the episode, the scene in Henry VIII's bedroom in The Power of Three was intended to show the TARDIS trio returning to get Rory's mobile phone charger after Rory had left it behind before A Town Called Mercy."

The trips eventually came to an end and the Doctor brought Amy and Rory home.


A year has passed since the arrival of the Cubes and finally some movements from them.

Due to a summons, the Doctor and Amy sees Kate at UNIT HQ in the Tower of London.

In the Tower of London, UNIT has Cubes under observation and amusingly this includes one that plays the same music over and over again.

The Doctor soon steps out followed by Amy as he needed to think on what to do with the situation at hand.

This presents a very lovely moment between the Doctor and Amy sitting outside the Tower as he reflects of what he should have done about the Cubes when they first arrived.

The Doctor also asked Amy whether she and Rory wants to stop the travels with him, as he sensed that is what they want.

Amy says they haven't made a decision on that and Amy asked the Doctor why he always comes back for them.

The Doctor says that Amy is the first to see his current face and he always comes back before she fades from him.

This moment ends when the Doctor figured something about the Cubes.

The Doctor figures that the Cubes has taken the year to make a complete assessment of Earth such as medical limits and military response patterns with Kate concluding the Cubes determining how best to attack Earth.

A subsequent action of the Cubes sees them attacking people's hearts and even one of the Doctor's heart gets attacked this way.

Coincidentally I rewatched The Shakespeare Code three days ago and that too had the Tenth Doctor having a heart being attacked.

Amusingly on a heart being attacked the Eleventh Doctor wonders how people manage with one heart as he says it is so pitiful and Amy gives a look in her reaction to the Doctor's statement.

Investigation of this leads them to the hospital of where Rory works.

The Doctor's heart problem gets solved at the hospital when Amy uses a portable defibrillator on him.

The climax comes when the Doctor, Amy and Rory are all on the Shakri spaceship with the Shakri finally turning up.

The Shakri is in the form of a hologram and reveals the Cubes were sent to wipe out humanity and more were prepared to be sent.

However the Doctor reverses the cubes' functions and feedback from this causes the ship to explode with the Doctor, Amy and Rory narrowly escaping in time.

This ends with the question of whether Amy and Rory was going to continue travelling with the Doctor.

This was solved with Brian encouraging Amy and Rory to go with the Doctor as they weren't ready to give up on the Doctor.

So with this encouragement adventures are anew with the Doctor, Amy and Rory.

However I commented at the time that a line like Brian's was so typical as it comes up just as Amy and Rory were set to leave in the next episode The Angels Take Manhattan.


Just as The Power of Three began with a narration by Amy, it therefore ends with it as Amy says as she address the meaning of the episode title:
"So that was the year of the slow invasion, when the Earth got cubed, and the Doctor came to stay. It was also when we realised something the Shakri never understood. What cubed actually means. The power of three."


Although there would be one more episode of Amy and Rory with The Angels of Manhattan, The Power of Three is in fact to last to be filmed for my wife Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill which rather makes Amy's closing narration all the more heart-warming.

Ghost Wars (2017-18) is a short-lived series that lasted for a single season of 13 episodes.

The third episode The Ghost in the Machine had Landis (Kandyse McClure) running to an elevator as she asked someone in there to, Hold the elevator."

This made me think of Selfie, another series that lasted for a single season of 13 episode and the pilot presented the same situation as it had Eliza Dooley (my wife Karen) running to an elevator and she too asked someone in there to "Hold the elevator."

September 29 2022 marks ten years since the original broadcast of The Angels Take Manhattan and sees the departure of my wife Karen Gillan as Amy and Arthur Darvill as Rory and written by showrunner Steven Moffat.

My wife Karen was in Manhattan earlier in 2012 on January 26 when she starred in the similarly titled TV movie We'll Take Manhattan in which she played real-life model Jean Shrimpton.

Back in Asylum of the Daleks, Zac Fox plays the Photoshoot PA but got no credit at the end credits of that episode due to an oversight.

This gets rectified in the end credits of The Angels Take Manhattan with his name and character name appearing there even though he was nowhere to be seen in this episode.


The Angels Take Manhattan starts with someone writing on a typewriter and the identity of this person would not be revealed until the near end.


A man by the name of Grayle in 1938 hires a private investigator Sam Garner to investigate an apartment building called the Winter Quay which is claimed to be infested by Weeping Angels and Grayle knows what the Angels are.


Garner goes to the building and the Angels inside tracks his movements there.


He eventually comes to a room with the nameplate S. Garner and his name is Garner with S as the first initial of his first name.


The door is unlocked and he goes in.


He finds an ID in a wallet and the ID is his.


However he still had his ID on his person and the one that he just found looks older.


Nevertheless it is the same one.


Then he hears someone nearby and it is an old man bedridden.


The old man reveals that it is Garner himself only older.


Garner had become this old man because the Angels had sent him back in time to live to the point where older Garner is now.


The older Garner warns his younger self that the Angels are after him.


The younger Garner makes a run to the roof.as Angels blocked his escape via the entrance down below.


Soon Garner on the roof to his horror sees a very angry face and that angry face belongs to the Statue of Liberty!

Garner said in reaction to seeing Lady Liberty like this:
"You gotta be kiddin me".

It is that very reaction which came across of fans seeing the Statue of Liberty as a Weeping Angel!


This is the last that is seen of Garner as he eventually becomes the old man on the bed.


The Eleventh Doctor, Amy and Rory are in New York 2012.

Incidentally the Ninth Doctor and Rose came elsewhere in America in 2012, in their case in Utah in Dalek and according to TARDIS Wiki it is a little later on that year.


For the only time, as this is her swansong, Amy is wearing glasses, glasses which got a brief hint at in the beginning of the previous episode The Power of Three.


The Doctor is reading a book about a private detective by the name of Melody Malone and reads it to Amy while Rory goes to get coffee.


The Doctor rips out the last page and Amy asked why he did that.


The Doctor says that he hates endings and ripping out the last page is his way of not wanting the story to end.


It is perhaps worthy to note that from his previous selves the Doctor is shown to have super fast reading speed with him being able to read an entire book in mere seconds.


The Eleventh Doctor's antipathy towards ending would suggest that he is unwilling to use the super reading speed that he possesses.


I can understand the Doctor's antipathy towards endings as I watch my favourite scene of a movie over and over again because I don't want it to ever end.


Still on the subject of endings, my wife Karen's first post-Who work is a movie called Not Another Happy Ending and the production team of that movie had purposefully waited for Karen to finish her work on Doctor Who before starting on their movie.


Rory gets the coffee and makes his way back to the Doctor and Amy when he suddenly found himself in 1938.


The Doctor finds out about Rory being in 1938 in the said book he was reading!


In 1938 Rory sees his daughter River there when they got captured by Grayle's men and one of them revealed that River is Melody Malone.


Of course the clue of River being Melody Malone is with the name Melody itself as she was born Melody Pond.


The date in 1938 is revealed to be April 3 and the choice of this date undoubtedly has to do with the fact that April 3 2010 was when the Eleventh Doctor made his formal introduction as well as the first appearances of Amy and Rory in The Eleventh Hour. So between 1938 and 2010 it is a gap of exactly 72 years.


The Doctor and Amy soon make their way to 1938 via the TARDIS.

Grayle, who had Rory and River in his custody gets knocked out by the impact of the TARDIS' arrival at his residence.


Upon seeing the Doctor, River tells him she is no longer in prison for killing him as all records of him has been erased and this is thanks to Oswin in Asylum of the Daleks also written by Moffat.


it is here the Doctor told River about the book that he was reading which River had written, given that she is Melody Malone.


However River didn't know anything about the book because for her she hasn't written it yet.



On finding River, the Doctor and Amy however do not see Rory anywhere in sight.


Just before coming to Grayle's residence, the Doctor had warned Amy against reading ahead in the book.


The Doctor says that they have to do things in parallel to the book and by reading ahead they would have done something because it was read in the book in advance.


With this warning the Doctor says that they need hints of Rory's whereabouts without reading ahead and Amy suggests chapter titles.


Taking up this suggestion, the Doctor finds the chapter entitled The Roman In The Cellar.


Rory, being the Roman, is therefore in the cellar.


Amy then goes to look for Rory in the cellar.


Not long after Amy goes to the cellar he reads the name of a subsequent chapter and it is called Amelia's Last Farewell much to the Doctor's horror.



When Amy reached the cellar she was too late as an Angel just made Rory disappear.


However the Doctor detects that Rory has not been sent back in time as he is still in this time as he got sent instead to Winter Quay.


Not long after the time travellers leave his residence, Grayle wakes up but meets his end by the Angels.


The Doctor had unwittingly caused Grayle's demise as he left the door open allowing the Angels to come in.


With the time travellers at Winter Quay they witness a horrifying sight that of the death of an older Rory.


This leads to a determination by Amy and Rory to stop the manner of death of this older Rory from ever happening.


All make a run for it.


With Angels blocking their path to the entrance below, Amy tells Rory for them to go up as it was better than going down to face the Angels.


It is worthy to note that one of my wife Karen's favourite movies is Scream and that had a line about a girl running up the stairs in order to get away from a killer.


So given Scream is a favourite movie of Karen's, perhaps she made the suggestion of Amy and Rory going up due to the danger of going down to the Angels.


This culminates with all of them going to the roof and Amy and Rory jumping off the roof, much to the Doctor's protest, thinking this would break the power of the Angels.


The reason being for this having seen older Rory died and with the jump off the roof, Rory cannot possibly die in two different ways and on the same night.


This gamble worked with all of them, the Doctor, Amy, Rory, River and even the TARDIS now being sent to New York in 2012 in a cemetery.


With all thinking the situation is resolved Rory notices a headstone with his name on it when he disappeared.


An Angel was behind Rory and it sent him back in time.



Amy then chooses to go back in time to see Rory as she purposefully let the Angel sent her back in time.


Before that Amy and the Doctor have a very tearful farewell and Amy's name then appears on that headstone.


In The God Complex, the Doctor told Amy that he feared on standing on her grave and now sadly this has come true.


The Doctor and River reflects on the loss they just had.


Now River would have to write that book and back in time she will ask her mother Amy to write an afterword.


The Doctor realises Amy's afterword is on the last page that he had ripped out earlier on.


It is here that Amy is revealed as the person on the typewriter that began this episode.


In the afterword Amy tells the Doctor that she and Rory have lived well since they last saw him and that they will love him always.


In finishing her afterword, Amy tells the Doctor to go to the little girl that she used to be, for him to tell the adventures she is going to have.


Amy concludes in her afterword:

"Tell her this is the story of Amelia Pond. And this how it ends."


The Doctor read the afterword as well the book earlier on with Amy's glasses.

With the glasses' original owner now gone, the Doctor would then be seen wearing the glasses in The Snowmen, The Rings of Akhaten, The Day of the Doctor and in 11's swansong The Time of the Doctor.

The Time of the Doctor would also see my wife Karen making a cameo as Amy to say goodbye to 11.


Notwithstanding the afterword, the last we see of Amy was in that cemetery.

Going back to my wife Karen's subsequent movie Not Another Happy Ending, the last scene of which with my wife Karen in it, also is at a cemetery.



Arthur Darvill would later return to time travelling as Rip Hunter in Legends of Tomorrow.

He would also reprise Rory for Big Finish as the said The Lone Centurion.

During the Lockdown in 2020, Darvill briefly came back on-screen as Rory in Rory's Story with Karen doing a brief voice-only reprisal as Amy.



At the end credits of The Angels Take Manhattan comes the trailer to the 2012 Christmas Special The Snowmen which includes a look of Jenna-Louise Coleman as Victorian Clara.

A story and a companion for another time.

Saw the movie Bad Night (2015) due to the presence in it of my wife Julianna Guill.

Bad Night is also the name of a Doctor Who mini-episode with my wife Karen Gillan as Amy and my wife Julianna had played my wife Karen's old high school nemesis in the Selfie finale I Woke Up Like This.

The Bad Night movie includes a Van Gogh painting as a plot point and my wife Karen as Amy met Vincent Van Gogh in Vincent and the Doctor and Vincent appeared briefly later on in The Pandorica Opens with The Pandorica Opens also being the name of an artwork of Vincent's.

October 12 2022 marks ten years since the release of P.S.:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWU6XL9xI4k


P.S. is a short animated coda to The Angels Take Manhattan which came out almost two weeks earlier on September 29 2012.

Written by Chris Chibnall and reading this now on TARDIS Wiki, as I probably long forgotten how this came about, according to Chibnall it was intended to be a live-action DVD extra,but wasn't filmed when Mark Williams proved unavailable to play Brian Williams here.

So instead storyboards of this scene was presented with narration by Arthur Darvill as Rory.

P.S. starts off with a clip from The Power of Three when Brian last saw Rory and Amy as well as the Doctor.

Then it cuts into the storyboards and it is now a week later from that Power of Three clip and Brian is in Rory and Amy's house watering the plants when someone rings the doorbell.

At the door is an American man and asked Brian if he is Brian Williams and Brian confirms that he is.

The man gives Brian a letter which is addressed to him as Dad.

The man asked Brian to read the letter while he, the man, waits.

Brian reads the letter and it is from Rory and the son tells his father that he (Rory) and Amy are permanently trapped in the past in New York City as depicted in The Angels Take Manhattan..

Rory assures Brian that he (Rory) and Amy have lived happy lives and in 1946 they adopted a son named Anthony and Anthony is the man who had just given Brian the letter.

After reading the letter Brian gives a hug to his newly discovered grandson.

The letter was truly heartwarming with Rory writing it knowing that he would never see his father again.

With this being about a relationship between a father and a son, the timing of this anniversary hits close to home for me as I lost my own father three months back.

This rather makes seeing P.S. at this point in time rather poignant for me.
