On a different note, because this doesn’t really fit with my review of “The Curse of the Black Spot” from earlier, but it needs to be said — I’m having a real problem with Amy’s Schroedinger’s Pregnancy.
If Amy is, in fact, pregnant, she should be roughly five months along, thanks to the three month jump in “Day of the Moon.”
Is Amy doing all the things as a pregnant mother that she should be doing at five months? Should the Doctor have thought it amusing that she was swinging from the ropes this week? Is Amy abstaining from alcohol? Is she taking care of herself? Is she eating right?
Yes, it’s interesting that Amy is simultaneously pregnant and not. But now that she’s well into the second trimester, the Doctor desperately needs to tell Amy because she stands a real chance of harming (or even having already harmed) the unborn child that may exist.
Just because she might not be pregnant, that’s no reason why the Doctor should allow Amy to behave as though she’s not. There’s a potential life at stake, and the Doctor’s secrecy and his cavalier attitude is endangering it every day that Amy doesn’t know and behaves without that knowledge.
Keeping this knowledge to himself isn’t just stupid. It’s dangerous, cruel, and inhumane. Keeping this secret is downright un-Doctor-ish.
