Dr. Who wrapped up its final end of summer/early fall run of episodes this evening with “The Angels Take Manhattan.”
The episode was a powerful finish to the first 6 shows of season 7. The 2012/2013 season is set to have a total 15 shows in all.
There’s to be a Dr Who Christmas special, but so far no date and no name have been published for it.
The “Weeping Angels” were back for tonight’s episode. This is the forth episode to feature the super spooky statues that only move when your not looking. In this episode they get a win, taking Amy and Rory back in time… for good.
Speaking about this episode, Matt Smith, the current “Dr Who,” said on Dr Who, Inside Look: “I defy you, if you are a Dr Who fan, to not have a lump in your throat somewhere by the end of it. If you don’t, then you’re an alien. And if you are an alien, I’m coming to get you.”
Tonight’s show was pivotal. It’s the last we will see of Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and her husband, Rory (Pond) Williams (Arthur Darvill). The doctor is warned several times near the end of this episode not to travel alone. His wife, River Song (Alex Kingston) agrees to travel with him “wherever and whenever you want… but not all the time.”
Jumping forward to the Christmas special – we’ll get to see Jenna-Louise Coleman as the new companion. If you saw the first episode of this season, “Asylum of the Daleks,” you’ve already met her. She was the beautiful, confident and cocky Oswin Oswald, a junior officer and apparently last surviving member of the crashed starliner, Alaska.
But unknown to her, she has been converted into a Dalek. Will Dr Who go back into time to save her before that happens, or is that crossing his own timeline? Perhaps we’ll find in the Christmas special.
The trailer for the Christmas special, just enough to be a teaser really, is below.
