See, I thought the episode was paced perfectly till the storm hit, then everything was rushed. Oh wait! She's traveling through reflections! Oh shit! There's a storm! Oh fuck! She's killed Toby and Rory! Wait a mo! She's not killing them! She's probably transporting them somewhere! Don't ask how I know this! Oh shit it's a spaceship from another dimension crossing over into this one and the pirate ship was inconveniently here at the same time despite me saying earlier in the show that traveling between parallel worlds is very very hard to do. And then boom! She's a doctor/computer program! Rory is dead again. Rory is alive again! And now the Doctor taught everyone how to competently fly a space ship.
Really, they shouldn't have spent so long on the whole my dad's a pirate thing and, and yeah, nixed the Rory is dying. Why can't Amy die for once? Rory dying is now a running gag for the show it seems. Still it was a lot of fun. Silly bits abound, but it felt weird going to this sort of episode after Moffat's stellar two parter.
The next episode, the Gaiman one, looks exciting! Another Time Lord maybe! Rory and Amy running around the TARDIS! Judging from the preview, it looks like this episode is the one that will have the previous TARDIS interior from Nine and Ten's run. Also, why does the Doctor keep Ood stowed away in his ship. Surely he isn't a practitioner of slavery!
And another thing! About the Silence (as this is apparently the official plural form of Silent), I really hope they come back at some point. We were all led to believe that they are somehow the big bad of the Eleventh. They're the one's aledgedly manipulating the TARDIS and trying to build their own. Likewise, there's still the mystery of the Space-suit girl. "Day of the Moon" made it seem like we would not be seeing them again, and I really hope that is not the case.
There comes a time, Time Lord, when every lonely boy must learn to dance.
