Doctor Who Wednesdays #9

Doctor: “All of creation has just been wiped from the sky. Do you know how many lives now never happened? All the people who never lived. Your girlfriend isn’t more important than the whole universe.”
Rory: “She is to me!” {Rory then proceeds to punch The Doctor in the face}

— 11th Doctor and Rory Williams, The Big Bang

To be clear, the Doctor was trying to get a rise out of Rory here. A whole bunch of really complicated stuff happened and the Doctor needed to make sure that Rory really was Rory. He knew that to the real Rory, Amy was the most important person in the world. It doesn’t mean that nobody else was important, and that the other lives lost didn’t matter. But to Rory, none of that would really have mattered if Amy wasn’t safe.

Remember a couple weeks ago when the bad guy was defeated by a Cyberman who loved? Well, this was a similar kind of situation. Rory was never turned into a Cyberman, but he was a mechanical robot, death weapon guy. He wasn’t able to control all of his actions because of that. But, his love for Amy meant that he stayed active after all of the other mechanical robot, death weapon guys were deactivated.
