Watching Who: 7×05 The Angels Take Manhattan

Things we’re taking away from this episode:
  • Important men always wear trench coats on this show.
  • Battery Park seems lovely. When it’s not infested with angels, that is. Also, Tove has a massive architecture crush on the Chrystler Building.
  • The Doctor really SHOULD stick to the science part instead of commenting on glasses and wrinkles and stuff.
  • Only thing creepier than angels? Baby angels. NO NO A WORLD OF NO. GO AWAY.
  • This episode has interesting definitions of marriage.
  • Smiling angels is a BAD sign.
  • Makeover for the Statue of Liberty. WE DON’T LIKE IT.
  • What a gorgeous episode. Setting, costumes, the whole thing. Yowzah!
  • Tears, goosebumps, waaaah. Does ANYONE like endings?
Best moment:

The Doctor: Well come on, come on, come on! Where is he?
River: If it was that easy I’d get you to do it.

Verdict:

Through our sniffling, we’re giving this episode 4.5 out of five DPNs, for being scary, gorgeous, and sad, yet not TOO sad… for an ending.
