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.

Quotes

Vincent Van Gogh: [of the TARDIS console] What do these things all do?
The Doctor: Oh, a huge variety of things. Uh, this one here, for instance, plays soothing music.
[music plays and the Doctor and Amy dance]
The Doctor: Uh, while this one makes a huge amount of noise?
Amy Pond: [nods, whispers] Yeah.

A Doctor Who Tearjerker
4 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode made me weep uncontrollably. I don't care that Tony Curran plays Vincent with his native Scottish accent. He truly embodied the tortured and suffering man that was Vincent Van Gogh. To have two of my favorite things together, Doctor Who and Vincent Van Gogh was just too good to be true but this episode has some very fine acting and some truly touching moments. I really did not want to like Matt Smith given how enamored I was of David Tennant's portrayal of the Doctor, but Matt has won me over. He plays the Doctor like a naughty, but sweet, child and he really is a fine actor. This episode also shines a light on the the fact that Karen Gillan can do something past her goofy, scolding turn as Amy Pond.
