(Original post by TheHistoryStudent)
I actually liked this episode - it certainly ended well, much much better than the last one (in terms of endings anyway...) - just 2 things really that I wasn't keen on.

1) The Statue of Liberty Angel... SOMEONE would have noticed it once it had moved... there's just no way no one would have noticed that thing moving... they'd just have been better off having regular angels chasing them on the roof, rather than that...

2) How does Rory die of old age? Isn't he plastic?

Apart from that I really liked this episode

You or the other person still has not explained my qualms. They have shown to be incredibly fast in the past, moving big distances in the blink of an eye. There's no way the ones on the stairs would not have caught them, it would have taken under a second once Amy turned away.

Dr Who fans will be forever irrational and stubborn though, so it's time for me to end this circle of argument.
Again - the angels aren't stuck at that speed, just as you aren't stuck at just walking, you can also jog, run, sprint etc. If they were desperate to catch them then they'd get them in a second - but in what was essentially a prison with no real form of escape? Why rush?

(Original post by boumavilla)
However one thing I didn't get was how come Rory died in the building when I thought he technically couldn't die? I thought he was made of plasticine?
I don't think so - he was an Auton in The Pandorica Opens, but the Doctor flying the Pandorica into the exploding TARDIS "healed" the universe, bringing back Amy's parents, so presumably bringing Human Rory back as well.

Nope, he was only plastic in one version of reality, which ended when the Doctor kick-started Big Bang Two at the end of series 5. When reality went back to normal that reality no longer happened, so Rory was human again. He still remembered being plastic though (he and the Doctor talked about it at one point).

I love the episode but the ending was too sad, The only other time I cried was when Rose left

Toying with prey is when you are certain they won't escape, they still wouldn't be 100% sure of what their plan was up at that rooftop, they would not allow them to run out of sight and away up there. Stop kidding yourselves, I can't stand fanboys/girls.

Didn't really enjoy that. Still, looking forward to a new companion.

And they're in a building policed by Angels with a giant angel awaiting anyone who reachs the roof - how much more certain that they can't escape need you be?

Great - I can't stand overly demanding people who whinge about not everything being explained in painstaking detail each episode and about something that's incredibly minute and not really an issue. So - bye bye, don't let the door hit you on the way out.

You forgot to mention - details which have been explained in previous episodes which the guy hasn't seen, and is blaming his own ignorance on the scriptwriters :p:

Roofstop statue of liberty, their ultra guard... except so many in the city would be noticing it making it therefore a useless, frozen guard.

He is so, so important and they know it. They do not know what Rory and Amy are planning to do exactly, why on EARTH would they let them go anywhere when it risks their existence? Animals in the animal kingdom do not toy with their prey when there is even a slight chance that prey may kill them unexpectedly. Toying is how a cat toys with a mouse, harmless and poses no risk whatsoever.

You are the one that needs to have the door hitting you on the way out of this thread tonight, perhaps it'll knock some sense into you. There is a reason I left this godawful forum, too much stupidity and irrationality.

Finally this series has redeemed itself. A brilliant episode.

Though idk if a statue made of copper can qualify as a stone angel.

Nearly wet myself at "I always wanted to see the Statue of Liberty... I guess she got impatient."

I regret watching it so much, because now, they're gone. :cry2:

I am actually balled my eyes out. I will miss them so much!
It's impossible how much a TV character has grown on me.
My favourite companions by far. They will be irreplaceable. It really saddens me that they both decided to leave, but I guess when the time is right, the time is right.

And Amy's speech at the end was amazing. I had completely forgotten about those episodes, the whale in space, the pirates.

Everybody on Doctor Who has done a marvellous job, and that episode will forever be my favourite, however upsetting it was at the same time.
If there was a way to go, that was the most romantic, dramatic and fantastic way that Amy and Rory could have gone.
I know Karen has said it's the end for her regarding Doctor Who, but I really hope she returns at some point in the future.

Anything's possible with the Doctor. :wink2:

Of course - I blame MOTD for being distracting.

Yeah - except the statue also serves as a massive distraction, and the angels inside catch up easily. Consider it a crowned, famous decoy.

Same reason they let anyone go up to the roof (like that detective in the opening) - there's no way down. How many people would know that a paradox would kill the angels, and that killing themself would create a paradox?

Cool - perhaps you should leave again then.

I was actually far more moved by the suicide scene than by the Ponds' actual departure. I thought that was far more sad.

Crying SO much :bawling:

Aside from the stupidness of the Statue of Liberty really great episode, first episode where I haven't hated River! But no more Rory and Amy is just tragic...may just have to curl up in a ball and eat copious amounts of chocolate for next few days.

:O Ahaha, I love River so much so it always shocks me when somebody says they hate her. She's a bit like marmite.

There were so many sweet moments between her and the doctor. I squee'd when he kissed her on the cheek. So god damn sweet.
