    A truly fascinating analysis, even to someone such as I who has absolutely no knowledge of esoteric symbols. I must go back and re-watch some of the Moffat era it seems, perhaps with a closer eye.

    I’m really intrigued by your idea of Amy as a survivor of sexual assault. Without oversimplifying (and with the knowledge that this kind of statement can be read as horribly offensive very easily), an Amy with that in her background makes a lot of sense: her playful sexual aggression, for instance, becomes a way of regaining agency over her sexuality as an adult. It also helps explain her attraction to the boring, stable-as-a-rock Rory while being drawn also to the mysterious manchild Doctor.

    Keep it up. I’m definitely interested in reading more analysis from you on this level.

    Great read, although I doubt the alchemical symbolism is intentional. But who cares about intent when you get posts like this?

    Jane, are you by any chance a fan of Sam Kieth? His comics are literally swimming in square/circle/circle-in-square imagery. Zero Girl in particular plays with these ideas in both a Jungian sense (literally– the protagonist asks Carl Jung for advice) and as a metaphor for sexual abuse (the comic centers on a relationship between a 16-year-old and a 32-year-old), but it pops up everywhere in his comics. Not just in the content, but in the form, because comic books are a medium full of shapes and he both can and does manipulate things like the shape of thought bubbles. Great stuff.
