The power of love thing is such a deus ex bullshita, there's no given explaination for it except "Amy is special" How is she fucking special! No rhyme or reason was given, it's the worst kind of overly sentimental crap that RTD used to come with. If they explain it next season sure it'll give answers but they didn't focus on WHY she was special at all, what was SPECIAL about her, hints, clues? Nothing, nope she's just special, and given that this is the 3rd time we've seen her be "special" I would have liked SOMETHING to explain it, just SOMETHING that was said this season otherwise it looks too much like a plant and pay off with no explanation, I mean that's screenwriting 101. They needed to plant something about why she was special, not just what she can do because she's special, and they needed to plant it this season so that we're not left thinking like I was "Oh come on...". They say she's special, but give no indication as to why she's special, not what she can do because she's special. Repeating myself here I know, but it's just a bit, eh.
Yes. Yes you are.
Amy was special because she had lived all her life next to a crack in the universe. The Timefield flowed through her dreams every night. Her mind was the only thing in the universe attuned to the raw matter of purest cosmos. The Doctor said it right out.
He was brought back from the dead by the Autons, that wasn't Rory as the killing of her suggested. It was a copy, a plastic clone of him using the residual pieces of information gathered from the past
Oh, no, no, no, no, no. [<- say as Patrick Troughton]
At the Wedding, Rory remembers that he "was made of plastic". The Doctor turns to Rory earlier in the episode and speaks of the power of memories, telling him that, when the Nestene Consciousness used the imprint of Amy's memories, they "got more than they bargained for", and essentially conjured up Rory's "soul" instead of a duplicate image. Rory had feelings - like Bracewell in "Victory of the Daleks". Having those feelings was the sum of his humanity.
One last point is to compare this idea of "human power" to another, let's say, in Last of the Time Lords, the Doctor's Gaining of power. It was done well because the human race used a single thought amplified by a network of satellites all at once whilst the Doctor (who we know has psychic powers) tuned himself into that network and used all that psychic ability to "regenerate" as it were.
Sorry, but you must be the only person (who isn't due to hit puberty any year soon!) who thinks that the ending of Last of the Time Lords was good.
Whenever I see anything satirizing how to write a crappy ending to a Doctor Who series, they always - without exception - bring up Last of the Time Lords. (Not the TV Movie though: that never existed)
Frankly, I think the entire third season was a bit of a mess. I thought the only enjoyable bits of the finale were at the end of Utopia - everything from Professor Yana finding his watch onwards, and that was only because it was a nice entertaining twist.
There was zero character development throughout the series; characters changed, oh yes, but it all occurred off-screen.
And who the hell is Martha? Why do we even care?"I *do* believe in Timelords. I *do*! I *DO*!"
One series just did it a lot
better than the other.
