** River Song was imprisoned for killing a "good man". Her FacialDialogue -- and the specific way Octavian refuses to answer the Doctor's questions -- gives a pretty good indication to the audience [[HeroKiller who this man was]].

Added DiffLines:

* EnslavedTongue: Amy is forced to count down to her own death.

Added DiffLines:

* ActorAllusion: When River is doing the medic thing for Amy, it is a shout-out to Alex Kingston's role in ''Series/{{ER}}''.

Added DiffLines:

* AppropriatedAppellation: The Weeping Angel the Doctor dubbed "Angel Bob" is quick to accept such a name as a means to refer to itself.

Added DiffLines:

* RevealingContinuityLapse: There's a brief scene where the Doctor is seen in his jacket, which he lost earlier in the episode. The season finale reveals that this scene features the Doctor from his personal future, and what he says here plays a role in the plot of the finale.

Added DiffLines:

* ThinkingOutLoud: The Doctor is very poor at bedside manner and is a MotorMouth to boot. Eventually he gives himself cause to regret this, as he works out why the Angels are making Amy count down while speaking to her and River. The ''horror'' of the thought and the wish he hadn't told Amy that [[DidIJustSayThatOutLoud are clear to see]].


* BluntHonesty: The Doctor has absolutely ''no'' bedside manner:

* BluntHonesty: BrutalHonesty: The Doctor has absolutely ''no'' bedside manner:


* BerserkButton: The Doctor threatens the soldiers that if anything happens to Amy while he's away he "will hold each of [them] personally responsible. Twice." Later behaviour as he realised leaving Amy behind was a mistake crosses into PapaWolf or BigBrotherInstinct territory.

Later behaviour as he realised leaving Amy behind was a mistake crosses into PapaWolf or BigBrotherInstinct territory. And his reaction when Angel Bob tells him they're terrorizing Amy before killing her because it's ''fun''...
* BluntHonesty: The Doctor has absolutely ''no'' bedside manner:
-->'''Amy:''' What's wrong with me?
-->'''River:''' Nothing; you're fine.
-->'''The Doctor:''' Everything; you're dying.
-->and later...
-->'''Amy:''' Doctor?
-->'''The Doctor:''' Busy.
-->'''Amy:''' Scared!
-->'''The Doctor:''' Of course you're scared; you're dying. Shut up!

Added DiffLines:

* InsistentTerminology: The Bishop asks a very important question when the Doctor wants to kill the lights, despite the Angels:
-->'''Bishop:''' Do you trust this man?
-->'''River:''' I absolutely trust him.
-->'''Bishop:''' He's not some kind of madman?
-->'''River:''' I absolutely trust him.


* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: Downplayed -- the way Amy kisses the Doctor, despite his clear refusal, would not have been taken as well if it had been a man kissing an unwilling woman.
