Trivia

There's a reference to there being a Disneyland on the planet Klom, which Appalappachia's Roller Coaster Zone has been modeled after the Warp Speed Death Ride Rollercoaster. Klom is the home world of "Absorbaloffs"-- the species of Mr. Kennedy from "Love and Monsters" in season 2. Klom is also the planetary neighbor of Raxicoricofallipatorius, home of the Slitheen. Klom is also one of the worlds stolen by the Daleks in the 4th seasons "Stolen Earth" 2 part finale. See more »

Goofs

When Rory hits the handbot over the head with the Mona Lisa it tears like canvas. This is obviously a fake because the Mona Lisa is painted on wood, a white Lombardy poplar panel. See more »

Brilliant
15 August 2015 | by josephthedoctorcalebSee all my reviews

Series six of Doctor Who is perhaps one of my favourites and after the whole River Song business halfway through and the disappointment of 'Night Terrors', this simple stand alone episode of Doctor Who is definitely worth watching. It really shows how much Amy and Rory care about each other and the lengths that they are prepared to go to in order to save each other. The Doctor although absent from most of the physical stuff is certainly well used and it's also good to see how he watches on and is emotional to see how he has to lie and make bad choices that will allow good things to happen. For me, this is the most emotional episode of Series six and will always be one of the best episode in its history.

Though I am still wondering how Amy mastered Gallifreyan technology and made her own sonic probe.
