Amy Pond: [Moving to a sitting position] I'm... fine. I'm supposed to... rest. Got to rest, The Doctor says.
Amelia: What Doctor?
Amy Pond: [Tapping her temple] He's in here. Left a message in my head, like an answerphone.

Brilliant!
26 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As an American fan, I had to wait until late July to see the final episode ... yes, I know I could have looked up the episodes online, but I wanted something to look forward to during the summer season. Each week, I found myself wanting more and more Doctor Who. The season finale was no different. It makes me sad that the season was only 13 episodes, whereas the normal American season is around 22.

Although many people do not like Matt Smith, I absolutely love him. Yes, yes ... I did just become a fan of the series back in April, but since then, I have seen almost every other episode in the resurrection of the TV show. First of all, each Doctor has a different personality. I love his quirkiness, how he talks to himself and says the most random things, and the fact that he's young. It takes the Doctor in a way it has never been before. Another reason I like this character is definitely for his bow ties. Bow ties are cool. I feel that Matt Smith, especially in this episode balances seriousness and funniness very well in the finale.

The thing I loved most about this episode is how everything is so well planned. The season finale had me on the edge of my seat, wondering why things were happening in that order. I felt like I was once again watching Inception; I was utterly confused through the first half and then enjoyed it very much as I learned more about the episode.

This is a very emotional episode and it really makes you feel along with these characters. All of the actors did an excellent job to bring their character to life. I enjoyed every second of this episode ... well except for the Dalek. I hate Daleks. Everything comes to a close from this series, and a new story line is opened at the end that leaves me wanting more.
