The Doctor:Between you and me, in a hundred words, where do you think Van Gogh rates in the history of art?
Curator:Well... um... big question, but, to me Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all. Certainly the most popular, great painter of all time. The most beloved, his command of colour most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty...

Some people are reading too much into this, 7 June 2010
Author: from United Kingdom

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.
