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.

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
We didn't make a difference at all.
I wouldn't say that. The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. Hey.
The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.
