THIS. SO HARD.
Look, guys, I love you all, and I’m all for feminism and I agree with nearly all your talking points, but THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM. SHIT HAPPENED TO AMY AND THE DOCTOR IS SAVING HER. THAT IS NOT SEXIST. GET OVER IT.
That is all.

I’m not in the Doctor Who fandom, but I can see why people would be pissed off about this. It’s not so much that the Doctor saves Amy, it’s that they chose to represent/tease the entire episode – possibly the whole season? – with her lying helpless in his arms. I’m sure there are plenty of other things they could have done to get fans excited without the stereotypical “damsel in distress” action movie cover. And it’s such a cliché anyway.
I dunno, I don’t have strong feelings about it either way, but I can see why people wouldn’t be pleased about it.

Here’s the thing. For the better part of the sixth season, Amy was nothing but “rescue me Rory/Doctor!” It came to a head for me in “The Girl Who Waited” where the Doctor warns her about pushing the wrong button and what does she say? “You’ll save me.” I literally yelled “bitch, save your own damn self!” at my TV. True, she does have moments where she takes charge and is a bamf, but most of the time she just gets into shit without listening to anyone else and then expects the Doctor or Rory to save her. It’s not even about feminism at this point. She just got really irritating. Which is why I will be so effin’ happy when she’s gone this season.

No but the point in all those cases of Amy being saved is her unwavering trust in the Doctor. It’s not a sexist issue, it’s nothing to do with the fact that she’s a woman, it’s about her as a character. It’s the idea that Amy’s faith in the Doctor is both beautiful and terribly dangerous, and is leading up to the fact that it will be her downfall in the end. It’s not about a man saving a woman, it’s about a character who went through a moment that changed them when they were just 7 years old, and were unable to let go of that moment or the person who was involved. These series have been about Amy seeing past the idea of the Doctor that she’s grown up believing in, and seeing the actual person behind the idea, and how damaging it is to have someone that high on a pedestal. There have been moments where this has been brought home to Amy (most notably in the God Complex, and A Good Man Goes To War) but she is still somewhat blind in her faith, and I think the use of the promo picture of the Doctor carrying her is completely effective, because that’s what the Doctor does to people who care about him in the end, and Moffat is just exploring that in a new way. All the other companions have been quite mistrustful of him at times- and rightly so- but to Amy he will always be her imaginary friend who sat and ate fish fingers and custard when she was 7. That’s the idea of him she’s stuck with, and that’s why, more than anyone, she’ll put herself into so much danger for him without thinking. It’s not about Amy being a woman and the Doctor being a man, it’s about two people who met each other when they were both ‘still cooking’. 


borderlineepic: I agree with stormraven24. I mean Amelia Pond has irritated me MOST of her appearance. These companions first find it weird that this “Human looking alien” can see and do so much with his Police box of a spaceship. YET, they (mainly Amy Pond) find it okay to NOT follow directions and do as they please. I think it would be just as annoying if Rory had the same attitude. I LOVE watching Doctor Who, but I’m not a fan of “Save the Companions”…. Unless if course it’s Rose, Donna, or Possibly Martha. haha

This is my feelings about going to class today.
Did I exaggerate? Not at all.
Did I make myself teary-eyed now that I’m thinking of this scene?
Absolutely.  

The story of Doctor Who is always the story of the companion, it’s always their story. It was Rose Tyler’s story, it’s Amy Pond’s story – the story of the time they knew the Doctor and how that began; how it developed and how it ended. It is their story. The Doctor’s the hero, but they’re the main character. - Steven Moffat (via)

Beautiful. I’m still not a fan of Amy Pond though.
