When the Doctor begins to tell Amy and Rory to enter the Police Box, Amy is holding her hand to her chin. The scene cuts to a wide shot in the middle of the Doctor's line, and Amy's hand is suddenly at her side. See more »
[Amy has encountered a future version of herself]
Do I really look like that?
Yeah, yeah you do.
Mmmm... I'd give you a driver's license.
I'll bet you would.
Ohhh... this is how it all ends... Pond flirting with herself... true love at last. Oh, sorry, Rory.
Absolutely no problem at all.

Being only eight minutes long including titles this is just a fun little incident rather than a proper story. While helping The Doctor carry out repairs to the Tardis Rory tells him how Amy passed her driving test despite being a useless driver... she distracted the instructor with her usual short skirt; just as he finishes telling the story Rory is distracted by the same skirt and drops a component which causes the Tardis to materialise inside itself. He can't really be blamed for this as he is underneath the glass floor on which Amy is standing. The Doctor enters the 'new Tardis' and promptly re-joins the Amy and Rory as he enters through Tardis's outer door. He explains that this loop means that they will be forever trapped in the Tardis! Shortly after Amy enters meaning that there are two of her; the new one from slightly in the future and she explains what they must do next.
This short was quite funny as one would expect from part of Comic Relief; it was fun seeing Amy flirting with herself and Rory clearly had an idea what to do when The Doctor asked what they would do with two Amy Ponds! Karen Gillan took the lead role in this short story and continues to impress me in the role although like Rory I might be slightly distracted by her skirt... I do hope she ignores The Doctor's final words of the episode where he told her to 'put some trousers on'! After a few guest appearances it looks as if Rory is going to become a permanent addition to the show; it will be interesting to see how his character develops in full length stories and whether it will change the dynamic between Amy and The Doctor.
