NOTD | Amy Pond Series - The Girl Who Waited

Yes, I'm back with another Series 6 episode and it happens to be one of my favorites. Why? Because Karen Gillan absolutely shines in it! I loved her before this episode aired, but this was when I fell in love with her.

In "The Girl Who Waited", the gang visits a paradise planet called Apalapucia. Unfortunately, when they land, the Doctor is completely unaware that entire planet is under quarantine due to an outbreak of Chen-7, aka The One Day Plague. All sorts of wibbley-wobbley, timey-wimey things happen and Amy ends up in a completely different time stream from the Doctor and Rory. When they try to save her, they jump into a completely wrong time stream and Rory finds a much older Amy, an Amy who had been stuck in the Two Streams Facility for 36 years. Do they find "their" Amy or do they take this Amy with them? I guess you'll have to watch to find out (I highly recommend that you do). It's a great stand-alone episode, so you needn't know anything from previous episodes to understand much of it!

(Bless you if you read all that btw. On with the swatch, I suppose...)

In this episode, Amy was wearing some of sort of gold hue on her nails, but since I already did that for "The Impossible Astronaut", I decided on this lovely purple color that matched the top that Future Amy was wearing. I'm wearing Pure Ice in Last Chance. It's a brand that I've only seen at Walmart. They're really cheap and they have really fun colors.

I'll see you all in the next Amy Pond NOTD, but before I go, I'll leave you one of my favorite Amy Pond quotes from the episode (and possibly the entire series):
You know when, sometimes, you meet someone so beautiful, and then you actually talk to them and five minutes later, they're as dull as a brick? Then there's other people and you meet them and you think, "Not bad, they're okay." And then you get to know them, and their face just sort of becomes them, like their personality's written all over it. And they just turn into something so beautiful...
Gah, my heart! When will I find the Rory Williams to my Amy Pond?
