The Angels Take Manhattan sees Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) her on-screen husband Rory, played by Arthur Darvill, River Song (Alex Kingston) and the Doctor face those terrifyingly creepy adversaries, the Weeping Angels, who appear in New York and the Doctor and Co. have to try and rid the city of the terror, but this time the challenge may be too great. and Amy & Rory face an impossible dilemma and end up having to make a difficult decision.
Amy has been the Time-lord’s companion for two-and-a-half years and the episode’s final shot was inspired by Karen Gillan’s first appearance two years ago and the Weeping Angels play a key part in the companions’ departure which has been described as ‘in flames of blazing glory’ but which leaves the Doctor devastated. The pair’s departure and eventual replacement by a new companion, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman, ( who has already been seen in the opening episode Asylum of the Daleks) would be difficult for Matt Smith’s character to deal with. However Jenna will be on screens for the Christmas Special and when the show returns next year. Meanwhile Karen Gillan is currently filming horror film Oculus in Alabama, and prior to that made a biopic about Jean Shrimpton for the BBC, as well as an independent romantic comedy entitled Not Another Happy Ending, and may make the odd appearance in the next Series of Doctor Who. (personally I think Matt Smith’s appearance clothes-wise, is very odd)
