Well it was left wide open as to who he saw, wasn't it? I mean, on one level, his greatest fear being himself fits with Moffat's series arc, but a lot of the fears were more abstract than that. I assumed the Master, tbh, probably because I'm a bit of a Doctor/Master shipper, but also because that would symbolise the whole 'last of the timelords' thing quite well, but I also wondered if it was a room full of traumatised ex-companions - that's been a strong theme throughout and in that episode too. But, yes, I think the beauty of it was leaving it open.

I took 'Amy Williams' to symbolize 'there's another fabulous life with the other person you love out there for you, and you can have that too'. I was most annoyed that the Doctor didn't say goodbye to Rory - they've had a pretty close relationship too.

Your take on the "Amy Williams" thing is a lot more charitable than mine, and I quite like it. The speech where he ripped apart her faith in him was very well done, I felt. It was exactly what he needed to say to make her see him clearly, and it's all true.

the Doctor didn't say goodbye to Rory

I'd forgotten that. That's either pretty unforgivable or a strong sign that we'll see them again in the series finale.
