DOCTOR WHO “A Good Man Goes To War” Review

DOCTOR WHO "A Good Man Goes To War" Season 6 Episode 7 – I have somewhat mixed feelings about this mid-season finale of Doctor Who. On the whole, I loved the episode and there really wasn’t a dull moment. Still, with all the big talk leading up to this showdown, it felt like there was so much squeezed into a single episode, which made this battle of epic proportions feel a little less momentous than I would have liked.

Amy describes to her baby, Melody, a great man who was thousands of years old and the last of his kind. A man who would find her no matter where she was in the universe. The description seems to point clearly at The Doctor, but Amy was actually talking about Rory, the Last Centurion. It was a clever misdirection since we’ve come to expect that dialogue like that is usually directed towards The Doctor, and it helped to set up a great scene with a courageous Rory facing down the Cyber Legion in his Last Centurion garb. Throughout this season, we’ve often heard Amy adulate someone we assume is The Doctor, only to find out she is talking about Rory. I get the feeling that this frequent intentional confusion between descriptions of The Doctor and Rory will probably work its way back into the plot in a much bigger way down the line. Read More...
