Amy and the Eleventh

Once upon a time in the West…

‘Anachronistic electricity, Keep Out signs, aggressive stares; has someone been peeking at my Christmas list?’     Ignoring the ‘Keep Out’ sign at the edge of a Town called Mercy (more a suggestion than an actual order; like, Dry Clean Only) the Doctor sets off down Main Street with the Ponds; Three Amigos with a […]

Just sharing a fun pic that captures the timey-wimey nature of Doctor Who (last series).

A town called Mercy

“I like to think of Keep out signs as suggestions rather than actual orders – like ‘Dry Clean only.’” So begins the Doctor’s adventure in the Town called Mercy (Series 7/3).  This episode has more ‘Western’ symbols and Biblical references than you could poke a stick at.

‘…when a good man goes to war…’

DOCTOR: And, when people come to you, and ask if trying to get to me through the people I love… is in any way a good idea…. Oh, look! I’m angry. That’s new; I’m really not sure what’s going to happen now. MADAME KOVARIAN: The anger of a good man is not a problem. Good […]
