Is Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill’s swansong worth a half season of build-up? Find out here!
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.
