Whovian Across the Pond
Bio not provided
As far as Matt's acting 10/10. He was absolutely fantastic playing the duel role. The story was 7/10 to me. I could have done without the kids and I didn't understand why they would have left the kids alone.

@DW_girl @Whovian Across the Pond The Ponds did not go on any adventures after TATM. The Doctor picked up earlier Ponds (i.e. the TPOT) and they had no idea where the Doctor was on his timeline and that he knew where they "die". They just thought here's the Doctor to take us on an adventure. Think about it, his entire relationship with River he knew when she would die and he never told her. I think that is why he was clingy, sad, and unusually angry in last 1/2 of TPOT and all of ATCM.

I liked this episode for what it was, it really wasn't about the cubes, it was showing the life of the Ponds in relation to the Doctor (8/10), probably to set up their exit. I also have a theory about this episode. I think the first half of it happened after Dinosaurs on the Space Ship and the second half (from the Ponds anniversary on) was after Angels Take Manhattan (A Town Called Mercy happened during the anniversary trip). The Doctor was young and unable to sit still in the first half of the episode and then left in the TARDIS (and could have traveled for years during that time picking up older Ponds) and came back for their annivesary clinging on to them and seemed older. He even mentions about Amy and Rory fading from them and will eventually stop traveling with him (he had a very sad and knowing look when he and Amy are at the Tower of London). I definitely think ATCM was after the TATM. He says he is 1200 years old in ATCM and was unusually angry. I think eventually he had to let them go due to the time disturbance (he was picking up younger Ponds) and he also lost River (went to the Singing Tower of Derillium) during that time and then went into the depression from The Snowman.
@Amy the Consulting Commentator No, Rory and Amy would be older and the Doctor would be the younger version (the version that was bored in POT). They would know how the cubes ended but the Doctor in TATM would not. I doubt they sit around talking about all the specific adventures they go on since they have so many adventures to choose from (since it is implied plenty of traveling happens off screen) and knowing the Doctor, he would probably change the subject if it fell on the cubes. It's all timey wimey.

@Amy the Consulting Commentator I do agree ATCM is during the anniversary trip (because of the charger cord) but I think the Doctor who brought them on the anniversary trip was a future Doctor to the one who started the POT episode. I think he may have gone traveling with future versions of the Ponds while he was waiting to see what the cubes would do and they were zapped back by the angels in that time. He was so "young" and antsy at the beginning of POT and so subdue, able to sit still, and generally "older" in the later half. Somthing had to happen to make that big of a change.
@Amy the Consulting Commentator I believe that A Town Called Mercy was taken out of sequence with Amy & Rory's timeline (actually I think most of 7.1 was out of order). I think the Doctor went back in time to take them on a few more adventures before their death in TATM. He is so angry and out of character in ATCM. I think that is why the lights are all funky (which happens when the Angels are near) and why the Doctor decides to stay (without complaint) for the later half of Power of Three. I think the events in TATM happened during TPOT.
