If the framing sequence from Angels in Manhattan is set in 2012, why does the newspaper say the Detroit Lions won the Super Bowl, when they didn't (and the episode was filmed after the Super Bowl). I would say it's more likely that those scenes took place in February 2013 (even if the Lions' performance so far makes it unlikely they'll even sniff the playoffs).
I assumed they were trying to firmly establish that Doctor Who is indeed a fantasy show, not just science fiction.
Life is full of disappointments. For instance, I really hoped "Chariots of Fire" would be a remake of "Ben Hur" with flame throwers.
