He blinks and peers closer at the monitor.

Then blinks again. He rubs his eyes and takes a closer look at the monitor. “No,” he breathes. “It’s not possible.”

He darts from the console to the doors, pulling them open and peers into space. Stars sparkle distantly, glorious in their beauty and beautiful in their glory. Among them, he sees, a wonder he’s not seen before: a monstrous turtle swimming through the stars with four elephants on its back, with water flowing over the edge of the elephants’ backs, falling into the nothing of space.

In all his travels, he’s seen nothing so wondrous, or beautiful.

“Amy! Rory! You’ve got to see this!”

Then he remembers.

Heartwrenchingly beautiful. I never thought anyone besides Sly's Doctor could have crossover potential with magical worlds. Mind you; this is far sadder and more honest than anything from him could be. Beautiful. Now you've made me cry, darn you.

Here's some tissues and I'm glad you got the reference implied.
