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.

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 »

Quotes

Amy Pond: We didn't make a difference at all.
The Doctor: I wouldn't say that. The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. Hey.
[hugs Amy]
The Doctor: 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.

Some people are reading too much into this
7 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I thought this episode was excellent. OK, so maybe the history may be a bit off (what? You mean Van Gogh wasn't tormented by an invisible chicken?!!) but the story telling and the poignant ending are first class as is the acting. The whole accent thing is irrelevant as is the language. Doctor Who history shows that the TARDIS translates all languages, hence it might be that on this occasion Mr Gogh's native tongue is translated in such a way it sounds Scottish. On the whole though, who cares? The story went at a fast pace, the characters were believable and the ending was extremely sad (even the death of the monster). You really feel for Van Gogh's illness and realise that he can't be saved. As the Doctor said, some points are fixed in time. My 12 year old, one of the lads, son was in tears. Any programme that can do this has to be a winner.
