Bill Nighy was Bill Nighy, which is always lovely. The scene in the museum had me crying along with Vincent, superbly played by Tony Curran as the Doctor showed him how he will be seen by history. And the Starry Night scene was amazing, with beautifully done CGI. Seeing the sky above the three of them morph into the painting was just beautiful.
The alien of the week wasn't really central to the plot, it was just something to hang the wider story off. The actual point of it was that people, including the Doctor, don't always see what's right in front of them, and the creature was a literal representation of that. Vincent's depression and its effects were central to the story, and again, brilliantly performed by Tony Curran. The scene in Vincent's bedroom was very close to home for me. The Doctor's visible heartache at Amy being unable to remember Rory was brilliantly played by Matt Smith, who is worming his way into my top three doctors at the moment.
And even though I saw it coming, the final scene of Amy looking at the painting in the museum made me weep like a weepy thing.
