  1. Loved the episode and the reievw Amy was my favorite companion, l’m voting for River Song as the next one “Say No to Spoilers and Yes to River! Song 2012” There was another companion that was re-casted Amy: she played a soothsayer in S04EP02 “The Fires of Pompeii”. The dummies in the dining hall were so creepy; they could be a great Doctor Who monster. Did you notice that the house the Doctor chose for Amy and Rory is a blue box? That was very nice. I have no clue what was the Doctor’s fear, what he’s afraid of? Why they didn’t show us that? Will they ever tell us what was in that room??David Walliams (Little Britain, Come Fly With Me) playing Gibbis was such a wonderful surprise, another brilliant guest star. Although Gibbis had some of the funniest lines in the episode, in a way, he was meaner than the space Minotaur because feeding on the faith of the victims was an instinct for the Minotaur, it’s his nature, while Gibbis was willing to sacrifice all his friends in the hotel and he had a sinister smile when telling Amy that her fear is still out there, waiting for her.One more thing, in the end Amy hugs the Doctor and kisses him on the forehead and the roles switch: she understands that the Doctor is in turmoil and so she becomes the adult, sacrificing her adventures in the TARDIS and showing him that he’s doing the right thing.
