The Girl Who Waited Reviewed
Cult Fix has reviewed this Saturday’s eagerly anticipated episode, The Girl Who Waited, and here’s a little taster:
Unsurprisingly, given the title, The Girl Who Waited is all about Amy. This is Karen Gillan’s episode and she will cause a few tears to be shed, come Saturday.
With the Doctor left in the TARDIS for most of the episode, it’s up to Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill to carry most of the action, and they do a terrific job. Gillan gets to play two versions of herself. One is the Amy we’re all familiar with; the other, an older version that has been left alone for decades, struggling to survive. Seeing an older Amy so bitter and angry with the Doctor is such a contrast, and it really gives Gillan a chance to flex her acting muscles.
However, Darvill also has a chance to shine. Rory ends up meeting both Amy’s, leading to a humorous scene between them, and a heart-breaking one later. This also brings up a dilemma for the Doctor, and you see a colder side to the Time Lord as he forces Rory to make an impossible choice.
