This man

I can't

I'm really hoping we get a lot of Rory this season — his involvement in The Impossible Astronaut wasn't as big as River's or Amy's but every little thing he did was fantastic. He set fire to the Doctor's body and then stood knee-deep in the water, watching, in that gorgeous red light, and later poked him in the chest just like the Doctor did in The Pandorica Opens and how can you be here

I can't — ahhh. And then runs his hands over his face as he's figuring out the 909/1103-years bit and when Amy says I don't understand he doesn't go on a patronizing male moment and Let me explain, he says Yes you do, because she does know what is going on, she's just refusing to admit it, and basically what he's saying is this is the truth, and this is going to hurt, but I'm not going to try and protect you from it, because I know you can fight your own battles. And it's going to hurt like hell. But it's still the truth, and it needs to be said.

This coming after two thousand years of protecting her and watching over her while she's trapped in the Pandorica, it's rather staggering — I think they've found a balance somehow, and I love that to bits.

♥ Rory.

Oh Rory. He was all "Hey, I'm the boyfriend" and going the route of Mickey, and then OMG WHERE DID THIS BAMF COME FROM??!! I would want to see Rory naked with a Dalek.

Oh god, I know. I mean, I did love what they did with Mickey in the end, and he got fairly badass and married fucking Martha Jones, thus creating the most adorable couple in the world, but still — I was wary of Moffat for taking that route, and he didn't, and I was so glad. Rory and his snark and his confidence issues and his facing down the things he's most afraid of because he has to. Just. ;o;

Although —

I would want to see Rory naked with a Dalek.

... right, so where did that come from? :D

Rory is the dependable nice man in the badass role. Far too rare.

Apparently there was interview where someone asked all four of them what they would think of posing naked with a Dalek, and Arthur Darvill was all, "...wtf?"
