Advertisements This is an important point. The Doctor explained his plan, but Soloman chose not to leave because he thought the Doctor would never let the ship be destroyed with him in it. This wasn't murder or even an execution. Had Soloman surrendered and wanted to leave, the Doctor would have taken him into his custody, and dropped him off somewhere to be held accountable for his crimes. But Soloman stayed on the ship thinking he could still get away. Yeah. I didn't notice anything different about the effects this time. Personally, I enjoyed the silliness of this episode. I'm not tired of Amy and Rory. I like the fact that they have grown beyond merely being the Doctor's companions, and have become family to him. If this continued on for multiple seasons, I might get tired of it. But knowing how many episodes are left before the new companion shows up, I am enjoying it. I think the Doctor picking up Amy and Rory without even asking was meant to be more of a lighthearted absurdity than a serious sign of the Doctor abusing his relationship with them. This whole episode was to allow the Doctor, Amy, Rory, and the viewers to have some fun before things start to get serious. And since this is one of the most silly episodes of the modern series, I am expecting some of the most dark ones to be happening soon.
