Doctor Who: The Angels Take Manhattan – see new pictures & trailers! (VIDEOS)

by Lynn Connolly

As fans of Doctor Who will no doubt know, this weekend’s episode, which is entitled, The Angels Take Manhattan, will see the end of Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill) #sadfarewell!

And ahead of the episode, which airs on BBC1 on Saturday at 7:20pm, we have a bunch of sneak peek pictures and two trailers for you which you can see after the jump.

But first, of the episode, which will see New York’s statues coming to life all around the Doctor (Matt Smith) and his cohorts, the show’s creator Steven Moffat has told Radio Times that he just had to bring back the Weeping Angels.

He said, “There was something about the Weeping Angels and New York that just seemed to make sense to me.

“It’s always good to find a new form for them and we’ve got little cherubs this time.”

On the subject of exactly how Amy and Rory bow out in this episode, Moffat wouldn’t provide RT with any juicy spoilers, but he did say, “There will be tragedy. It’s a heartbreaking farewell to Amy and Rory.”

And Matt Smith added, “They go with a bang and a tear. It was terribly sad when they left.”

Finally, of the logistics faced in producing the stunning special effects for the episode, Doctor Who producer Marcus Wilson revealed, “We composited backgrounds from stills taken while we were in New York.

“We were there for a week with a small unit by American standards. We didn’t take any Angels.

“They were all added in post [production], as was the Tardis by the Brooklyn Bridge.

“It took a long while to set up, getting permissions and visas, but the New York team, who’d worked on Law & Order, made everything run very smoothly.

“We even wrapped early on the last day.”

So without further ado, here are the two trailers we promised you and a gallery of images from the episode. Enjoy!

    I can’t wait for Saturday’s episode. I will be sad to see the Ponds go, but it is time for the Doctor to move on to a new companion.
