Moving: Vincent van Gogh Today

This is surprisingly moving: In an episode of Doctor Who from 2010, the Doctor and his companion Amy take Vincent van Gogh, who was not a commercially successful artist in his own lifetime, to the Musée d’Orsay to see an entire room filled with his paintings.

  3. I absolutely love this episode. I was taken aback at how moved I have been throughout this series! The writing is so good and you grow to love these characters so much! I love the sweet and tender moments mixed with the bad-assery and general awesomeness of Dr. Who!

    Sorry. Totally geeked out there! :)

  4. One of my favorite episodes!
