So do I. And that was some finale. Other shows talk about the Big Bang, but...WHAMMO! I was surprised to see Matt Smith playing a death scene so soon after David Tennant was given one (they only thought they were dying, of course). I thought Smith's "death" was quite touching, coming in an otherwise completely daffy show.

This is the first time the Doctor has had a married couple as his companions, isn't it? I liked the evolution of Rory in this series. At his first appearance, he was just Amy's sort-of boyfriend, a bit of a doofus and easily intimidated. But he grew, and he developed stature. I guess dying on a distant planet 4000 years in the future and then being resurrected as a Roman soldier would either make you or break you.
