[edit]

This is the second brilliant episode of Doctor Who in succession, based loosely on Einstein's theory of general relativity which states that time is fundamentally wibbly-wobbly. The Doctor and his companions (Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill) are off on holiday to Apalapucia. The trouble with holiday destinations is that they don't always live up to their reputations. The Doctor promised "sunsets, spires and soaring silver colonnades". What they found was a cross between an airport and a clinic, presided over by well-meaning robots, above, who will kill you with kindness. But that's not the worst of it. The main problem on Apalapucia is that time runs in parallel streams at different speeds, so poor Amy gets stranded in different time zones simultaneously. One Amy is her usual fresh-faced and happy self. The other Amy has aged dramatically, having had to fend for herself on this sterile planet for 36 years. And that leaves Rory confronted by two versions of the same person he loves. This ferociously imaginative episode was written by Tom MacRae.
