Bahaha, Doctor. What is it with him and being irresistible to Egyptian royalty? xP I guess this is why Nefertiti ends up coming along on this adventure; she insists
on joining him. Well, her contribution to this episode should definitely be amusing.
Rory's dad, Brian, should also be a lot of fun. According to Karen and Arthur in that interview, he really loves Amy but isn't quite as fond of his own son. Heh. Seeing the dynamics between Rory and his dad will be great, especially as Brian will no doubt get to see how badass his son can be in between being an adorable normal guy. Then the Radio Times also indicates that Brian protests that he is not
a Pond - because of course the Doctor would consider him to be a Pond. Hee. The interaction between Brian and the Doctor is also likely to be pretty entertaining. (It is really weird to think that, technically, the Doctor is Brian's grandson-in-law
All in all, it's clear - especially from a whole bunch of those images - that this episode is going to be so much crazy fun
. In a way, this episode is the one I'm least excited for in this half-series because it seems the least deep and charactery and rambleworthy, but that doesn't mean I'm not still excited for it in a totally different way because of how mad it's going to be. The Doctor in particular will undoubtedly take such gleeful delight in all of this craziness (I'm particularly fond of that one image of him making friends with the Triceratops x3) and aaaaa this is going to be so, so entertaining.
And. While this is probably the least character-arc-related episode of this half-series, there should still at least be a small amount of it. The talk halfway through this American trailer
about how Amy is thinking of stopping travelling might
be in this episode (his bow tie is at least the right colour for it). What definitely is in this episode is the shot of Amy and Rory looking out of the TARDIS doors while behind them, the Doctor, rather than enjoying the view with them, is looking at
them as if he's wondering if they should really be here. D: And generally I'm still not entirely sure what the Doctor's inclusion in their life has been like since the end of Asylum; I mentioned this a bit in my ramble for that episode, but yeah, I'm looking forward to seeing how that's developed. It seems the most likely thing is that he has just gone back to occasionally popping in and inviting them on adventures, which is why they're here in this episode, but it could be something slightly different. We'll see.
