Trivia

Originally an older actress was going to play Older Amy, but Karen Gillan insisted on playing Older Amy with the aid of prosthetics and it was decided Karen Gillan playing both characters would be more believable. Gillan developed different body-language, vocal range and attitude for the new individual, whose character has changed after being left behind and in danger. To achieve this, Gillan studied with a voice coach and movement coach. Gillan also wore a padding which affected her movement and she spent hours in makeup. 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 »

Calm down, Amy
8 June 2018 | by chitwtaySee all my reviews

Amy is one of my least favorite companions. She's whiny, and she consistently (until the last half of her last season) chooses the Doctor over Rory. Rory. Waited. 2000. Years. Without. Complaining. For. Her. He did it out of love! TWO THOUSAND YEARS! GUARDING HER doing NOTHING but that! She waits a few decades and gets pissy? And won't forgive him? It was never done on purpose! I cannot stand her most times, but I hate her the most in this episode. 1/10 stars. How did she ever land Rory, my goodness.
