Check out this optical illusion, the shapes and colors give a startling impression of movement, even though this is actually a still image! The movement always seems to be occurring where your eyes aren’t focusing.
The Doctor’s a time traveler. He brought Vincent Van Gogh (who was severely depressed and lost hope in his ability and himself) to the future, to a museum where they are celebrating his art.
I don’t know if any of you are artists (drawing, writing, whatever), but being a writer, this scene moved me to tears. You’re your own worst critic, and feel like your stuff is complete shit sometimes…maybe even to the level of despair like Van Gogh. But imagine someone brought you to a world where people love and appreciate your art. Or it means something so special to them. The thought of it is overwhelming.
I’m probably just rambling, lol, but this is one of the most perfect episodes in the series.
