This is the first episode that we had with guest-stars.  “The Angels Take Manhattan” is a very divisive episode.  In fact, it largely foreshadows “The Time of the Doctor”.  It features a lot of interesting ideas (the Weeping Angels’ ranch, the wooden Cybermen), a lot of ideas that sound good until you really start to think about them (the Statue of Liberty Angel, the nudity subplot), and a very touching character departure.  In fact, taken as a trilogy with “The Name of the Doctor”, all three “finale” episodes in Series 7 have those things in common.
