What Did You Think of The Angels Take Manhattan?

What Did You Think of The Angels Take Manhattan?

The final episode of series 7a has aired so what did you think?, was it the best episode ever or just average.

The Doctor’s heart-breaking farewell to Amy and Rory – a race against time through the streets of Manhattan, as New York’s statues come to life around them…

With Rory’s life in danger, the Doctor and Amy must locate him before it’s too late! Luckily, an old friend helps them and guides the way.

    Can someone tell me, what was the reference back to the eleventh hour was it Amelia t the end? And what question did it answer from TEH?

    Jenna-Louise Coleman’S Oswin Oswald from ‘Asylum of the Daleks’ wont be coming back as she was killed along with all the other Daleks in the Asylum.

    Instead, Jenna is returning as Clara Oswin, a woman from the Victorian times, who maybe a great great great [several times great] Grandmother or some other relation to Oswin Oswald, like Freema Agymans Martha has a Cousin called Adeola back in Army of Ghosts / Doomsdays, same actress, different characters, but both related in some way.

    The Weeping Angels should never have returned after ‘Blink’, they should have stayed scary in that 1 episode and left it at that, just like Joss Whedon did with the Gentle in Buffy the Vampire Slayers series 4 episode ‘Hush’ by not bringing them back after that episode.

    this episode wasent the best i mean it was better than asylum of the daleks but i felt no emotion im not fussed about who leaves and who stays. the angels were not scary. i think the show should return to the classic format

    Karen Gillan apparently hinted at a possible return during the 50th Anniversary next year in The Mail on Sunday.

    im gonna miss the ponds =/ they deserved a better send off, but at least they wont be bringing them back (tht annoys me).
    just thinking..Moffat was very clever to have the next companion in the first episode. cause now everyone loves her ^^ (it better be the same character tho or im gonna go and knock some sense into him)
    wish they hadn’t over used the angels =/ loved em in the first ep (blink) but after that it just got a bit silly.
    im now super dreading when river leaves. but the thing i dont get… shouldnt river be getting younger as he sees her… ?

    Here’s a few thoughts. The future River does not try to prevent what occured (like NEVER go to N. York!), and it seemed to me that River wrote the book in such a way to ensure Amy and Rory were sent back, coincidence that as a child River lived in New York, also she encouraged Amy to ‘blink’ and really didn’t seem too upset in the Tardis afterwards which makes me think she actually WAS the future River and knew what was going to happen. Rory had to go back as he has to die of old age on a set date. Could the graveyard angel actually be an Angel Of Mercy (a good angel) so Amy could be reunited with him? Remember they get to live their lives free from the angels and live a long and happy life. Surely there is more to be revealed by River about what happened. As far as I can work out the Dr can’t go back to see them as he witnessed Rory’s death, they are part of his timeline. (If someone dies he can’t just jump in the Tardis and go back in time 5 minutes and save them for instance). Once it says on the gravestone they are dead he can’t go back as they have already lived their lives without him. Going back to see Amelia and telling her about some of the future adventures makes sense as I used to puzzle over the fact Amy often seemed to know just what to do, as if she had already lived it before, I used to think she was a time lord or something in the first series. He would of course only tell her certain things and not others. I do wish they had used all the five episodes in a story arc leading to their departure, it felt as if they had already been pushed aside for most of the ‘series’. Amy and Rory I shall miss you!

    i enjoyed this story but it was a bit rushed but i thought that amy and rory were going to die because they were jumping off the top of winter quay but in the end it was unexpected the way they left the show all that i can say is goodbye the ponds

    I meant either from COD Zombies BTW.

    Sigh, if only Someone Had Teleported to the Graveyard either COD Zombies or if they had a Vortex Manipulator and took some guns or something and distracted the surviving Angel then Amy and Rory would have never’ve been zapped back in time.

    i dont recognise it, but im still hoping its omega! there was a lot of speculation about it when matt smith started and the cleric’s logo (the army guys) in time of angels and flesh and stone was the symbol for omega, so i’m still hoping

    The apisode was ok, but there were alot of plot holes. it was very dry, but still the weeping angles were as manacing as ever. i just hope that future episodes wont suffer the same fate as this one. as a whole the series was ok, but the wealth of plot holes made it very confusing and stale. and in my personal optinion could have used more T.L.C. as a whole. it feals rushed.

    I thought the doctor would go “dark doctor” on the last angel. To be honest I kind of hoped he would.

    oh and they’d still meet the doctor.
    The fact they died in the past before they were born, has NO effect on their births at all, nor on their meeting the doctor!
