It's April 22, 2011 the day the Doctor is supposed to die but time seems to be stuck at 5:02 p.m. London streets are clogged not only with automobiles but also Roman chariots; pterodactyls fly in the sky. The Holy Roman Emperor, Winston Churchill, calls on a prisoner to explain what is happening. In fact, all time seems to be occurring all at once. The Doctor determines that a fixed point in time has been altered or prevented from occurring. That fixed point is his own death at Lake Silencio where history records that River Song killed him. Of course not all is as it seems, particularly as it relates to the Doctor himself. Written by garykmcd

When the gang are at Lake Silencio, there's a moment where someone is visible behind the hut behind the Doctor's car. Their features aren't visible, but their moving silhouette is. See more »


Madame Kovarian: [weakly] Amy... help me.
Amy Pond: You took my baby from me. And hurt her. And now she's all grown up and she's fine, but I'll never see my baby again.
Madame Kovarian: But you'll still save me, though. Because *he* would, and you'd never do anything to disappoint your precious Doctor.
Rory: Ma'am, we have to go, now!
Amy Pond: [to Kovarian] The Doctor is very precious to me, you're right. But do you know what else he is, Madame Kovarian? Not here.
[Amy re-attachs Kovarian's eye drive]
Amy Pond: River Song didn't get it all from you, sweetie.
