@Unowhoo seems a little farfetched. Things don't roll towards people for dramatic effect. Granted, it's not uncommon in the world of Who for the farfetched to occur, but I think the whole episode was constructed to make us believe, then feel at the end it's been debunked, the existence of a monster, only to surprise us later when the monster we didn't think existed comes back.

@Unowhoo then who rolled the chalk toward him?
If there was no monster, then who wrote "listen" on the doctor's chalkboard? I haven't seen anybody with an answer to this yet.
Seriously, if it was all imaginary, then who wrote "listen?"
It was elegantly crafted to make the viewer think that there was no monster, but then riddle me this: who wrote "listen?"
Umm... Also, River is a Time Lord who is the offspring of two humans, so this is not such a radical idea.

Also, anyone trying to refute this idea with logic derived from facts we already "know" about the whoniverse is overlooking the fact that the Moff makes up rules whenever he needs to for the convenience of his story.
But I do hope they don't rip off the Statue of Liberty bit from Planet of the Apes.that would be weak.
@TheOncomingHurricane @NicholasOlivieri in what way is it not? Part of what makes (new) Who such a great show is its versatility. Amidst a bunch of much more serious episodes and a developing story arc, the series took a complete time out for some silly fun. The performances by the principles were superb. It gave Jackie a chance to develop in a way that was unprecedented, and gave much more significance to her eventual semi-re-union with bizarro-Pete. There are plenty of SciFi shows out there, and frankly the sci in many of them is superior to what you get in Who, but episodes like this affirm what sets this show apart in that it is completely comfortable with not taking itself too seriously and still be completely enjoyable. And admit it - you went to your computer immediately afterwards and downloaded Mr. Blue Sky. We all did, including jimmy dean breakfast sandwiches and whoever made the movie Role Models. I could probably go on, but nobody reads these things if they're too long.

Wait... Is it a commonly held belief that Love and Monsters is not a good episode? Are you ALL barking mad? Love and Monsters is a fantastic episode.
