The fun part was seeing two Doctors and watching them interact!
The reasoning behind this two parter can be summed up in this final scene between Amy, Rory and the Doctor once they are back on the Tardis..
RORY: Doctor! What is happening to her?
DOCTOR: She’s going into labour.
AMY: Did he say…? No, of course he didn’t. Rory, I don’t like this. Ow!
(grips her stomach and bends over)
RORY: You’ll have to start explaining this to me, Doctor.
DOCTOR: What, the birds and the bees? She’s having a baby. I needed to see the Flesh in its early days. That’s why I scanned it. That’s why we were there in the first place. I was going to drop you off for fish and chips first, but things happened and there was stuff and shenanigans. Beautiful word, shenanigans.
AMY: It hurts!
RORY: But you’re OK?
DOCTOR: Breathe. I needed enough information to block the signal to the Flesh.
AMY: What signal?
DOCTOR: The signal to you.
DOCTOR: Stand away from her, Rory.
RORY: Why? No! And why?
DOCTOR: Given what we’ve learned, I’ll be as humane as I can, but I need to do this and you need to stand away!
RORY looks at AMY who shakes her head. RORY looks back at the DOCTOR and then slowly backs away from AMY.
AMY: No. No! (turns her gaze from RORY to the DOCTOR) Doctor, I am frightened. I’m properly, properly scared.
DOCTOR: Don’t be. Hold on. We’re coming for you, I swear it. Whatever happens, however hard, however far, we will find you.
(puts his hand to AMY’S cheek)
AMY: I’m right here!
(puts her hands on his arm)
DOCTOR: No, you’re not. You haven’t been here for a long, long time.
The DOCTOR pulls away from her and holds up the sonic screwdriver. RORY gasps.
AMY: Oh, no!
The DOCTOR activates the sonic and AMY melts into Flesh.
AMY wakes with a gasp. She is lying in a bed and dressed in a white hospital gown. Above her, a window slides open and she sees the EYE-PATCH LADY.
EYE-PATCH LADY: Well, dear, you’re ready to pop, aren’t you? Little one’s on its way.
AMY looks down her body and sees she is in a position about to give birth and starts whimpering.
EYE-PATCH LADY: Here it comes. Pu-u-u-ush!
OH MY GOD.
Amy really is pregnant and got herself kidnapped?? As far back as ‘Merica?
Well… the midseason finale is A GOOD MAN GOES TO WAR… Till tomorrow!!
