A treat for Whovians This episode is definitely not a good one to introduce someone to Doctor Who with, but for someone who has been watching for a while this episode is a treat. There is a wonderful nod to the classic Doctor Who character The Brigadier. I appreciated insight into the Pond normal life. So often we slip into thinking of them as the Doctor thinks of them, just waiting around for the Doctor to call.PS. When a friend has never seen Doctor Who and I only have time to show one episode, I show them “Blink” (Season 3, episode 11). It’s a brilliant episode that doesn’t require much back-story to understand.
The Power of Three is a Family The Power of Three focuses on the bond between the Pond/Williams family and the Doctor. Amy and Rory are questioning the double lives they have traversed since the Doctor arrived and whether or not they should give up time travel. When black cubes descend all over the earth, the Doctor decides to live with his human family to discover the reason for the year-long invasion.For those dedicated Whovians who love Amy and Rory, you may feel a bit weepy watching this episode. There are shout-outs to what has come before – characters and other companions, and a heartfelt confession from the Doctor to Amy that may require a tissue or two.Per the Doctor Who Season 7 production schedule, The Power of Three was the final episode Gillan and Darvill filmed as Amy and Rory. In their last scene together the Ponds got into the TARDIS with the Doctor. And when the doors closed, the three actors embraced and cried.
