The Impossible Astronaut >>Amy Pond, Rory Williams, River Song and the Eleventh Doctor receive a mysterious summons that takes them on an adventure to 21st century Utah and Florida in 1969.Along the way they meet Richard Nixon, president of the United States of America, and former FBI agent Canton Everett Delaware III.
Maybe the reason Rory doesn’t ever break up with Dean and ‘strings his feelings along’ is because everyone CONSTANTLY tells her how wonderful he is and how lucky she is to have him, and how awful Jess is and that to break up with Dean would be a mistake. So then she feels all this guilt about being attracted to Jess and feels that she owes Dean her love.

In the early 1960s aspiring stage actor Harry H. Corbett jumps at the chance to play junk-dealer Harold Steptoe in a television comedy show ‘Steptoe and Son’. However, the show’s success proves to be a poisoned chalice for him, type-casting him and thwarting his stage ambitions. Wilfrid Brambell, the actor playing his father, is marginalized in a different way. He is a gay man in an England where homosexuality is still illegal. The show runs for several years, incorporating film spin-offs but both, in their own way, feel that they have invoked the curse of Steptoe.

*In May 2009, the BBC Trust concluded that the
programme had been inaccurate and unfair by implying that the child of Maureen and
Harry had been conceived as a result of a casual relationship.
**Maureen had two children with Harry: Susannah and Jonathan. They remained married until his death in 1982.
