I will say this for BBC's reboot of Doctor Who -- the show does both its Hello's and its Goodbyes very well. It will be difficult to write much in this review without offering spoilers. I really, really enjoyed this episode. It kept me guessing. It had Moffat's usual riddles and it had the depth of emotional drama one saw in the best of Russell T. Davies' episodes. I've been missing the old romance and panache of Amy & Rory's relationship for the past few episodes, and this episode brought it back in a huge way. Some depth added to the relationship between River Song and the Doctor, as well.

My favorite line from the episode:

"We're changing the future. It's called marriage."

God, that hit home. As both a married man and as a viewer who has really invested in Amy and Rory, this one hit home.

What else to say? The Weeping Angels were back. They weren't quite as chilling as in "Blink," but there were several intense moments that recalled that episode. As well as one rather majestic moment: "You have got to be kidding me." The show included a beautiful tribute to Manhattan and an homage to 1930s noir.

That's all incidental, though. The Doctor may hate endings, but it is the ending of this episode that is so poignant. I don't usually tear up at television. But I suppose when I do, it's when I'm watching Doctor Who.

I have it very very rough these days. There aren't a lot of things for me to look forward to anymore. But I can look forward to Doctor Who.

For the dedicated Doctor Who fan, it isn't a matter of whether this is less or more than "Blink". The deliciousness lies in this season's beginning ending with "The Question That Must Never Be Answered" - just a sly HINT of where we're going on this year's roller coaster ride with the Doctor. And WHO is there among us who could POSSIBLY resist that?!?

The story is amazing. Touching. Human. And humane. "Subtract love, add hate." That is the formula that makes a monster of any human. How strong must be the love that keeps us human in the face of our worst fears!

"Asylum of the Daleks" is a GEM - one of the greatest "Who's". EVER.

Matt Smith is at it again. And we all get to come along for the ride! It is shameless of me, yes, but I love amazon.com streaming. We can buy every episode here, the day after it
airs in the UK and then watch it as often as we like. It's the best, but mostly because it's "Dr Who".... the only intelligent writing left in the Universe perhaps. I am a pain in
the keister when it comes to film, but I love my BBC and I am so ready for this season!

What an episode! The Angels! River Song! The Statue of Liberty!

This is an extremely well written episode, one that leaves you amazed that all that happened in only 45 minutes. The episode hooks you from the beginning, and, like Asylum of the Daleks, gives an old enemy new tricks.

The episode had many touching moments, and the narrated lines by Amy at the end were a good bookend to her story.

Some episodes of Dr. Who have seemed light on the story, lacking in character, or neglecting some other thing. This episode was very well balanced. Good plot, good pacing, great character moments. It leaves you wanting more and satisfied with the ending at the same time.

Bring a tissue. And don't blink.

The Power of Three focuses on the bond between the Pond/Williams family and the Doctor. Amy and Rory are questioning the double lives they have traversed since the Doctor arrived and whether or not they should give up time travel. When black cubes descend all over the earth, the Doctor decides to live with his human family to discover the reason for the year-long invasion.

For those dedicated Whovians who love Amy and Rory, you may feel a bit weepy watching this episode. There are shout-outs to what has come before - characters and other companions, and a heartfelt confession from the Doctor to Amy that may require a tissue or two.

Per the Doctor Who Season 7 production schedule, The Power of Three was the final episode Gillan and Darvill filmed as Amy and Rory. In their last scene together the Ponds got into the TARDIS with the Doctor. And when the doors closed, the three actors embraced and cried.

This episode is definitely not a good one to introduce someone to Doctor Who with, but for someone who has been watching for a while this episode is a treat. There is a wonderful nod to the classic Doctor Who character The Brigadier. I appreciated insight into the Pond normal life. So often we slip into thinking of them as the Doctor thinks of them, just waiting around for the Doctor to call.

PS. When a friend has never seen Doctor Who and I only have time to show one episode, I show them "Blink" (Season 3, episode 11). It's a brilliant episode that doesn't require much back-story to understand.

If you look at the title "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" and think "That's silly. I won't like it," then you won't. If you look at that title and think "F*#$ yes I want dinosaurs on a spaceship. And throw in some Egyptians," then you will. As a bonus, Mitchell and Webb!
