Storyline

Visiting a museum, the Doctor and Amy are especially excited with the gallery for Vincent van Gogh. Many of van Gogh pieces are displayed, including "The Church at Auvers (1890)". However there is something irregular discovered on the painting - a small alien image within a window pane. The Doctor quickly takes Amy back to 1890 where they locate the troubled artist that upsets the locals, cannot pay his bills, and is able to see an invisible monster that no one else is able to see.

Trivia

Richard Curtis asked Steven Moffat to criticise "anything and everything" and later said he was very honest. Moffat told Curtis that it needed to "start quicker" and that the meeting with the Doctor and Vincent was "dull" and needed to be something "cute" like Curtis had done in his films. He also noted that the Doctor did not talk as much as Curtis had written and recommended Curtis watch some episodes to see he was "rather efficient in the way that he talked". See more »

Goofs

As they are leaving the TARDIS, Vincent says that he cannot believe that one of the haystacks was in the museum. The only painting that fits this description is in the Netherlands not France. However, van Gogh did quite a few paintings of wheat. See more »

Quotes

The Doctor: Between you and me, in a hundred words, where do you think Van Gogh rates in the history of art?
Curator: Well... um... big question, but, to me Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all. Certainly the most popular, great painter of all time. The most beloved, his command of colour most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty. Pain is easy to portray, but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world, no one had ever ...

Brilliant ending!
22 June 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Matt is the best Doctor I've seen since I was a young boy. Here, the amount of heart in the ending of this episode is stunning. The acting, by all each and every one of the cast, the writing, the direction and the score in the end part of this episode come together to create a powerful emotional sequence. The rest of this episode is standard, but the conclusion stands out impressively. Secondly, this new Doctor has revitalized the series for me. The last few Doctors, going all the way back into the 90's, have never stood up to the legendary characters that were set up in the 60's, 70's and 80's. Well done to the Dr team for getting back on track. Let there be more of this greatness.
