Doctor Who, Series 7, Episode 5: “The Angels Take Manhattan”

Written by Steven Moffat

Directed by Nick Hurran

Airs Saturdays at 9pm (Et) on BBC America

This week, on Doctor Who: River’s a pulp heroine, Amy and Rory are an old married couple, and the Doctor’s, once again, alone

The Weeping Angels are one of the best creations of post-2005 Doctor Who. Introduced in one of the series’ best stories, “Blink”, these villains operate on one simple principle, the same that makes zombies such effective genre antagonists- they’re easy to defend against as long as you can persist, but they never stop. Slip up for one moment, even blink, and you’re dead. After the success of “Blink”, Steven Moffat brought them back in series 5’s “The Time of Angels”/”Flesh and Stone” and managed to pull off an Alien/Aliens, switching up genres and crafting a worthy successor. »
