The one that makes no sense at all.


Behold, another story that was the byproduct of a ''Series/BluePeter'' contest. In 2012, the Eleventh Doctor and company were stuck in the Land of Fiction and needed somebody to write a story for them to get out. That should be your first clue [[BizarroEpisode things are about to operate really high on the silly spectrum]]. ''Good as Gold'' is more of a "[[BroadStrokes let the writers do as they please]]" story, after all, being a children's script. This is a LighterAndSofter tale, where the rules don't apply on continuity because it's taking place in a fictitious reality. Anything is possible, even things that don't make sense. Naturally, characters act even goofier than usual. That, and a Weeping Angel is thrown in to mix, with extra powers just for fun.

And now, a reading from TheOtherWiki:

Amy reminds the Doctor he needs to have an adventure once in a while, the Doctor complies and sets the TARDIS to its "adventure setting". After a series of malfunctions, the ship lands in the middle of the London 2012 Olympic Games, where they are visited by a panicked Olympic runner, who claims he is being chased. His pursuer is revealed as a Weeping Angel, who is seeking to seize the Olympic Flame and rob the planet of the good will and spirit it symbolizes. The Doctor vanquishes the Angel with the sonic screwdriver, and the runner resumes his mission. Before he leaves, he gives the Doctor his gold medal. As the Doctor prepares to embark on another adventure with Amy, the Weeping Angel begins to re-form....
