this is how I spend my time.  
I finished the S5 rewatch a little while ago, and it's so silly: I'm a little bit bereft, not having any more episodes to watch over again. Sigh.

(I did watch "Amy's Choice" again after finishing the proper rewatch, though. I am not entirely certain how that happened. I still love it, and one of my favorite little touches is the way Amy gives herself away after her encounter with the Dream Lord: he's telling her she has to choose, and Amy herself seems worried, she doesn't seem quite to believe that she has chosen--but it's Rory whom she bends down toward, to draw the edges of his blanket more tightly around him. I don't have the words, quite, to articulate just how that little gesture sums up so much of Amy and Rory for me, that little moment of protective tenderness.)

'Amy's Choice' is my favorite episode of new!Who EVER. There is just so much going on that I feel like it gifts the viewer with each rewatch. It is also such a lovely character study of Amy, Eleven, and Rory. I know they couldn't do an episode like that all the time, but I'm so glad they did it this once.

Oof, your icon. That's one of the bits that breaks my heart: the way that Eleven, who has been so tactile with Amy thus far, can't touch her when she's grieving over Rory; his hands just hover and ghost.

I love this episode, and you're right--it tells us so much about these characters and how they interact. It's a perfect S5 episode, in that way, because we're still getting to know them all.

That is my favorite part of the episode, actually, so when I saw the icon, I knew I had to have it. It just totally breaks my heart. You know he wants to touch her, but it's as if he feels he doesn't have the right to. *wibble*

Yes, that's it exactly! Poor Doctor.
