Dinosaurs on a Spaceship

My reaction: It’s Lestrade!  With a knife!

Amy and Rory were good in this one.  I liked their competence.  Too often the high companion turnover means they’re never around long enough to find their feet (as much as they can ever be found, when traveling with the Doctor).  To emphasize their awesomeness, the writers dragged some novice companions along for the ride to be injured and confused in the Ponds’ stead.

This isn’t really related, but I like to imagine that Nefertiti gave herself to the antique hunter because she was planning on luring him into a false sense of security, pushing him out an airlock, then stealing his ship.

Also, I want to read a one-shot or drabble about all the little (and big) ways Amy and Rory alter their lives so that they are always ready for when the Doctor shows up.

And finally, why is the Doctor friends with a big game hunter?  The only thing that guy has to recommend himself is his affinity for using large guns to shoot larger creatures.  This doesn’t seem like the sort of person the Doctor would usually get along with.  I want to see a one-shot explaining how they got so chummy.
