Doctor Who: The Almost People

The latest episode of Doctor Who aired yesterday, and it was AMAZING!!!

Here's the official synopsis:
As the solar storm rages, Jennifer, a Ganger driven mad by the memories of being “decommissioned”, is seeking revenge, as the time-travelling drama continues.
She can remember every excruciating second of every “execution” and is determined that the humans will pay. And she isn’t just talking war; she’s talking revolution. As the crumbling factory fills with toxic fumes and drips lethal acid, the “Originals” wait desperately for the shuttle from the Mainland to rescue them. But Jennifer has other ideas. Can the Doctor convince the terrified factory workers to embrace their own humanity and work together with their Gangers to overcome a monster of their own making?

The Gangers rally together
The cliff-hanger was stunning, making the wait for the following episode--the last episode of the spring section of series six, I might add--even more anticipated.


Amy was a Ganger, and has been for a very long time. When back in the TARDIS, Amy begins having contractions, and the Doctor sonics her. She dissolves into the flesh, and the real Amy wakes up--in a hospital about to give birth, with the eye-patch lady as midwife. 
Amy: Doctor I am frightened. I'm properly, properly scared.
The Doctor: Don't be, hold on. We're coming for you, I swear. Whatever happens, however hard, however far, we will find you.
Amy: I'm right here.
The Doctor: No you're not. You haven't been here for a long long time.
Amy: Oh no. {he melts her into the flesh}.
It's my suspicion that the Ganger Amy replaced the real one sometime in the three month gap between The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon. 

Anyway, it was funny having two identical Doctors finishing each other's sentences. 
The two Doctors
The Doctor Ganger: Oh, there's always some power floating around—
The Doctor: Sticking to the wires, like bits of lint.
Amy: Could you stop finishing each other's—
The Doctor: Sentences?
The Doctor Ganger: No promises.
Next week we find out who River Song is....
