I don't see why it's so weird that the Doctor would take 2021 Amy and Rory to 2012. In "Human Nature" he takes Martha (from 2008) to 2007! Ooh, exotic. At least Rory and Amy have had time to get nostalgic.
To be honest, that bothered me too.

I like it. I wish they had filmed it. Although it overlaps with Amy's scene, so they can't really include both in the episode. But it made a great web extra (and would have made an even better extra if filmed).

Quite a touching ending. Would have made the episode for me.

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.

My son and I have been working our way through last season, and then the current one. Tonight we finally saw The Angels Take Manhattan.

I'm sure everything that can be said already has. I'll just add that both of us were crying (I'm not talking about a single tear welling up, I'm talking about sobbing here!).



When Amy's name showed up on the tombstone, and we realized at once that they were gone, but that they lived long and happy lives together, well...that was a beautiful moment. Just brilliant. We loved it.

Farewell to the Ponds.

On the other hand, Bilbo is not "an alien, a legal alien".

I wish they had played "Shadows in the Rain" instead.

I talked to my mom the other day and told her about the extra scene. She checked it out online, and then about 10 minutes I got a text from her reading, "That was the saddest thing ever!"
