Amy’s Choice

Doctor Who | Season 5 | Amy's Choice

A pregnant Amy Pond faces a terrible choice. Or does she? All is not as it seems in this chilling adventure…


The Doctor and his companions, Amy (Karen Gillan) and her fiancĂ© Rory (Arthur Darvill), are in a trap set by the mysterious “Dream Lord” (Toby Jones), wherein they repeatedly fall asleep and wake up in a different reality. In one, Amy and Rory are happily married but pursued by elderly people possessed by aliens, while in another they are on board the Doctor’s time machine, the TARDIS, where they anticipate being frozen to death by a nearby astronomical phenomenon. They must decide which is the real reality and die in the phony one, to wake up in reality and escape the trap. At the episode’s conclusion, the Dream Lord is ultimately revealed to be a manifestation of the Doctor’s dark side and self-loathing.
