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.

Both of Van Gogh's ears are intact. At least part of his left ear was cut off in December 1888, more than a year and a half before his encounter with the Doctor and Amy. See more »


The Doctor: Right! OK! Here's the plan:
The Doctor: [to Vincent] Amy...
The Doctor: [to Amy] Rory...
Amy Pond: Who?
The Doctor: [a bit panicky to Amy] Sorry!
The Doctor: [to Vincent] Uh umm... Vincent.
Amy Pond: What? What is the plan?
The Doctor: I don't know actually. My only definite plan is that, in future, I'm definitely just using this screwdriver for screwing in screws.

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.
