A beautiful and poignant episode where the Time Lord and Amy meet the post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh. In one scene the Doctor tries to be sincere with Van Gogh, only to come across as patronising in the way that it is very easy to be when dealing with mental illness. “And,” he states, “to be honest, I’m not sure about mad either. It seems to me depression is a very complex matter.”
