‘Doctor Who’ thing of the day: Amy calls out the Doctor on being such a tease…

I figure this scene must be included on the new Fifth Series box set [Amazon U.S.] [Amazon Canada] [Amazon U.K.], but I haven’t had a chance to delve into that yet:

“Get yer coat, love: the Doctor is in.” Yes, that’s exactly what he does. Bastard.

I knew the Doctor would be a fan of Star Wars, and Tolkien.

What’s wrong with this Doctor, though? Is he feeling old? The other Doctors knew they were blokes. Jon Pertwee? He was a man who liked fine wine and fast cars and pretty ladies. Of course, he was a lot younger then…

Or is this something akin to how John Nathan-Turner freaked out when he realized he’d cast, in Peter Davison, a virile young actor as his Doctor, and went overboard in the other direction, making sure everyone knew there was no hanky-panky in the TARDIS? Did Steven Moffat suddenly realize how young and randy Matt Smith was?

No, no, I can’t see that. It’s not like David Tennant and Christopher Eccleston didn’t inspire all sorts of easily expressed naughty thoughts among the companions, never mind the fans. Nah, this is Moffat having fun with that.

Ah, and Amy coming to realize that she’s not the first pretty girl to travel in the TARDIS… “Is that a leather bikini?” Brilliant.
