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 wanted to call the episode The Eyes That See the Darkness, but Steven Moffat wanted an explicit reference to Vincent in the title. See more »

Goofs

Doctor Black says that Van Gogh likely painted the church between June 1st and June 3rd, 1890 "less than a year before, before he killed himself." While this is technically true, Van Gogh actually killed himself the following month. See more »

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.

One of the very best Dr. Who productions
2 April 2015 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

For those who have not seen this episode I would strongly recommend they obtain a copy and for those who watched it the first time sit back and enjoy it again. It is clear that a real effort, no an extraordinary effort was made by the production team with this episode. I'm not sure why but so glad because the finished product is first class. The last five minutes,no giveaway, is the sort of TV that should have won awards

  • why didn't the BBC put this episode up for an award I wonder? I


originally saw this episode over in France and the reaction was excellent with rave reviews - we saw the film on a large screen so much better than a small TV set. Think all Dr. Who episodes look so much better on large screens.
