The first half of Doctor Who Series 7 concludes, and it begins with The Doctor (Matt Smith) with companions Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill) having a picnic in Central Park, New York in 2012. While there, Rory is zapped back to 1938 by one of the Weeping Angels.
The Doctor and Amy discover that their impending adventure is documented in a book, and they travel back to try and find and rescue Rory, only to discover that the Weeping Angels have established a feeding ground in New York City. Meeting up with River Song (Alex Kingston), the heroes find themselves in a fixed time loop problem, which may have tragic consequences for them all…
…or for some of them…
During TARDISblend 56, we discuss Steven Moffat‘s final farewell to the Ponds in The Angels Take Manhattan, and examine some of the more wibbly-wobbly aspects of the episode. We also make mention of some of the cooler Angel scenes in the mid-series finale, and look forward to the next episode being the Christmas special.
And finally, as always, we take a look at some comments from our listeners, and provide some Classic Doctor Who recommendations to our listners.
All this and more on the latest TARDISblend!
