  • "Gorgeous video, even though the subject was sad. I really liked the effect of showing Rose within the outline of the Doctor's body several times - that was really neat and it sets it apart from so many videos that use very basic effects. You definitely know how to use your software without going overboard on the video by putting in too much. Excellent job as always!" [1]
  • "This is unbelievably beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time. I have to say that I am in love with the gorgeous color scheme you have used in this piece. I love the dark shades of blue and the burnt gold colors. It adds so much beauty to the look of the video. I'm also blown away by the effect you used where Rose's image is blended into the Doctor's body. That literally took my breath away. It's such a powerful image and you pulled it off brilliantly. As for the song, it's absolutely perfect and I have to find this album by Secondhand Serenade ASAP. All in all, another amazing video! I'm glad you were finally able to finish it and share it. This one is going on my MP3 player for sure. Thank you so much! Keep up the fantastic work!"[2]
  • "This is one of my favorite Ten/Rose vids ever. I love everything about it. The images, the color schemes, the visual effects, the music, etc. I chose this video to analyze mainly because there are so many elements to the story of the Doctor & Rose that are being shown in this piece. I also love how the emotions are constantly changing throughout the video. Even the lyrics of the song change in meaning for both characters. I had never heard this song by Secondhand Serenade until I saw this video. Needless to say, it became one of my favorites soon after. You could watch this video without the music and every shot is perfectly paced to the rhythm of the song. Being a musician, this is something I truly admire. In this commentary, I will be focusing on the connection between the images and the lyrics, as well as the use of visual effects and the underlying themes of the relationship between the Doctor and Rose."[3]
