Is The Doctor reading Harry Potter? Looks like Goblet of Fire.

Think it's the Angels this time.

A little anti-climatic, I mean they're just sitting on a rock.


/can't wait until the fall for the new season to start!!1!

It looks like a manga cover. GoF however would be a great in-joke.

Really not looking forward to this ep. Seems like every time they do a US centric episode it completely falls apart (Daleks in Manhatten being the worst of the bunch but they all share that "This is what the UK thinks Americans are really like" quality that takes me completely out of the show).

Needs more scantily clad Amy Pond.

Come to think of it, my entire life needs more scantily clad Amy Pond.

I like to imagine that's the same rock I always picnic on in Central Park (in the vicinity of the carousel), but the odds are against it. Despite Vaux & Olmstead's best efforts, about 70% of the land area of the park is still big jagged rocks.

I don't know about that, the episodes they shot in Utah last year were pretty amazing. Canton Everett Delaware III was a fun character as well.

/but yeah, Daleks in Manhattan was full of fail
//the people responsible for that episode should be dragged out into the street and beaten

The Apple is actually Bigger on the inside.

Awww, they're trotting out the angels again? Eh, gahh, tsk...you know...Fine. Let's make the angels a seasonal villain like the Daleks and the Cybermen. Can't hurt. Hell, lets do the angels twice a year. Lets take some of the best bad guys of the new series - genuinely dark and creepy things - and play them until they're cartoonish caricatures of themselves.

Do you know what the angels need? They need to travel back to WWI and join the British service! Oh no, better yet, better yet, lets replace them with bigger angels that are more colorful? That's a fantastic idea. We just keep making them bigger, that way they get more...ominous.

Oh! Instead of sending people back in time or breaking necks (hey they're practically the same thing) we could have them turn into wisps of smoke that transfer a person's soul from their body into the statue of the angels! Then we could have this long pull away shot of Amy Pond's eyes blinking and then we see the rock exterior of the angel with a single tear dripping down its frozen face and the camera dips down to show the angel's outstretched arm reaching out for Rory but forever frozen. Genius.

Yes, let's keep using the angels.

I was never a big fan of the Angels either. But then I like to blink.

The angels were great in Blink, but the last appearance was just mediocre and didn't need them over any other monster of the week. They really ought to be retired. Their schtick is getting old.

Angels? What about the Cybermen currently infesting Gracie Mansion?

I dunno, their two parter last season was pretty good. I'm more worried about the Western episode they're doing. Sure it's got Ben Browder and a super-cheesy-looking cyborg, but Doctor Who and Westerns are two great tastes that I really don't think are going to taste great together.

In part because I think the only non-Americans that can make great westerns are Kurosawa and Leone.

//Leone may have lifted a bunch of his style from Kurosawa, but he quickly made his own unique style out of it.

New companion this season as well. I will miss Amy Pond but they have to move on at some point.

I have been watching all the back seasons and I think the angels are a great villain. That episode was very intense.

"Everyone who is not an American put down your guns"

Oh look, it's the old "All Americans are gun crazy and carry pistols around like Matt Dillon" stereotype again.
 
2012-04-12 05:13:19 PM  
I dunno as an American who had never handled a gun in my life. I hit 4 of 6 flip targets with a six shooter from 15 feet. So maybe there IS something in our genetic code. :D

This wouldn't be the first time Doctor Who has done a Western -- they did one with the first Doctor back in the 1960s. It was popularly referred to as the worst-ever Who story amongst fans, but it's not actually that bad (aside from the overuse of The Ballad as a narrative device). Hartnell is very funny in the story, reminding me somewhat of his performance in The Romans.

/should go watch both of those stories again; it's been a few years

I certainly hope there won't be Daleks. Besides the general need to put them aside for a while, it would be too cliché for them to be in Manhattan again. Almost any time New York is depicted, the Daleks show up. It's nothing new, going all the way back to the First Doctor's The Chase. Between that one, "Daleks in Manhattan"/"Evolution of the Daleks" and "The Stolen Earth", I half-expected to see the shadow of an eye-stalk or plunger arm in the alley when Melody regenerated at the end of "Day of the Moon" or at some point in that 1920s episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day.

My guess is the Statue of Liberty is a secret weeping angel trapped as a sightseeing attraction.
