No you don’t understand … The Weeping Angel was still there. The Doctor crumpled and fell apart and put his face in his hands because he was devastated over losing Amy and Rory. But obviously he stayed there. The Weeping Angel didn’t touch him. And then I realized …
River. River kept staring at the Weeping Angel to let the Doctor have his moment of grief. River just lost her parents and she still managed to hold herself together to make sure that the Doctor was safe.
Tell me again why she’s disliked?
Karen Gillan on Amy Pond. "She’s just a strong girl, woman, whatever. Oh, let’s just say she’s a strong female. (…) She’s not just standing around in awe of the Doctor. I guess Amy’s attitude is ‘Come on, impress me’. And she’s not going to mope around when the Doctor’s not there - she’s going to do her own thing, whether it’s fighting monsters in strange new worlds, or just getting on with her life.” (Radio Times).
