Doctor Who: lots and lots of The Angels Take Manhattan pics

News Louisa Mellor 20 Sep 2012 - 07:04

A bumper crop of spoiler-y new images has arrived early from the The Angels Take Manhattan...

Warning: spoilers lie within...

Written by Steven Moffat, The Angels Take Manhattan is the last in the current chunk of episodes before the Christmas Special, and as we know, it’s the episode in which the Doctor bids adieu to two people very dear to him.

We’ll let Moffat explain, courtesy of the Radio Times:

"Never let him see the damage. And never, ever let him see you age. He doesn't like endings."

The Doctor has been dropping in on the Ponds for some years now, and he's barely even noticed that his little Amelia Pond is now wearing reading glasses.

Surely nothing has to change now? Surely this can go on for ever? Has the wandering Time Lord at last found a family and the nearest thing to a home he could imagine?

But out there in New York the Weeping Angels are waiting for them all, and a very different destiny is falling into place. Not even River Song can save them from the terrible events to come.

Heartbreak is always a terrible thing. But imagine if you had two of them...

A huge pile of images (we’re very nearly talking the episode in flipbook form) for The Angels Take Manhattan has arrived online, so if you don’t want to go in cold, take a look below:

Some may consider the below as Spoilerish, (although if that's the case don;t click on a link with photo's tags "Spoiler TV") so:
1935, 1952, 1953 or 1957

Mike McShane! Haven't seen him for years. Good to see him back on tv.

I wear glasses now. glasses are cool

Sounds like a great premise. I hope the episode does it justice, I've not been impressed by the substance of the episodes this season so far.

I enjoyed the Mike McShane-ness of those photos as well!

Oh my God! The Lions are going to win the Super Bowl! Moffatt gives us another twist!

I know what you're getting at. Would have to be an alternate universe where the Super Bowl was created a lot sooner...

Isn't the doctor wearing Amy's glasses in the last image?? I'm assuming that he's kept them to remind him of Amy... maybe because she's dead?

This episode seems quite Rory-lite.
Probably because Rory has been revealed as the Master and has gone to conquer some planet

No, it's probably some tech that the Doctor comes up with to protect against the Angels. Your speculation is way cooler than what we'll probably get....

Ah, yes, you're probably right. Thanks for liking my idea anyway!

They're really doing a good job hiding any Pond-Leaving moments... Looks fantastic

Amy and The Doctor shop at the same optometrist.

I thought I recognised that face but couldn't place it - I loved him on the legendary Whose Line Is It Anyway, him Josie Lawrence, Ryan Styles, Tony Slattery, brilliant!

The weeping angels are becoming like the sontarans .Both the time warrior and blink are two of the best episodes in doctor who history but when the invasion of time came out the sontarans were stupid drones and the two doctors was truly awful why do I have a feeiing the same is going to happen to the angels.

Prehaps the angels see their own reflection in the lenses?
