Doctor Who – A Good Man Goes To War

Doctor Who – A Good Man Goes To War
Saturday 4 June BBC1

Amy Pond has been kidnapped and the Doctor is raising an army to rescue her as the drama continues. But as he and Rory race across galaxies, calling in long-held debts and solemnly given promises, his enemies are laying a carefully concealed trap.

In her cell in Stormcage, River Song sadly acknowledges that the time has come at last – today will mark the Battle of Demons Run and the Doctor’s darkest hour. Both sides will make their sacrifices and River Song must finally reveal her most closely guarded secret to the Doctor.

Amy is played by Karen Gillan, the Doctor by Matt Smith, Rory by Arthur Darvill and River Song by Alex Kingston.

    The doctor has:

    (i) a clone daughter – remember her? she flew off into the distance around the time the Doctor kissed Madame Pompadour (a woman whose coffin the Doctor did not not fill with bricks to allow her to escape into time with him – and another, like the lady from ‘the Waters of Mars’, who might have been rescued into time);
    (ii) a grand-daughter (who appears as “an unearthly child”) in the very first episode of DW. Did a later regeneration of the Doctor leave the grand-daughter with an earlier regeneration of the Doctor to look after?
    (iii) the Doctor made a commitment to return to his grand-daughter (maybe shortly after she loses her husband and is about to regenerate herself):
    (iv) there is a rumour of a lone Susan piloting the Tardis in the multi-doctor episode “The Five Doctors”;
    (v) there is an epsiode of the X-Files where Fox Mulder gets married and settles down (and the world collapses around him since, so the theory goes, he stops believing and pursuing the truth that is out there) – is love with River Song the ultimate weapon against the Doctor’s work (or does she come to help him in his work; and share it with him)?;
    (vi) Oh, there’s more, so much more; loose ends; spoilers; where *did* Amy Pond come from in that first episode; what of that pollen and the other chap in the bow-tie?

    Overall, ask yourself if it was just the Doctor who used that Cot featured in today’s episode; and, when doing so, ask who wrote “River Song” on the side in Gallifreyan.

    Oh! and where did the Flesh end up? and who/what was that shape-changing “baddy” who came through the crack that frightened Amy so much? Ah! And which dimension are David Tennant (the single-hearted Doctor Who) and Rose in? and is Phil Collins a Doctor Who fan: ? ? ?
