"It's a fez. I wear a fez now."
The two-part season finale of Doctor Who's fifth season was pretty damn marvelous. It was funny, thrilling, and touching in that way Steven Moffat seems to have perfected. It also tied in nicely with various bits from the rest of the season--not just with the Pandorica that River Song mentioned in "Flesh and Stone," or with the cracks in time that have been appearing throughout the season, or with certain characters from previous episodes showing up again, but with what was revealed to be the true nucleus of the season: Amy Pond. And to a certain extent Rory, who turned out to be a heck of a lot more than the new Mickey.
