Storyline

The Doctor, Amy and Rory are in New York City on a beautiful summer's day. Rory sets off to get coffee and walks into a 1930s film noir where daughter River Song is a private detective, Melody Malone. Actually, Amy and the Doctor have the whole story written down in a cheap paperback but the Doctor forbids her to read too far ahead because once they know what happens, it cannot be changed. As for Rory, he finds that the Weeping Angels are there. Several attempts to travel back in the TARDIS are unsuccessful but they manage to break through. They find that the angels have taken over New York and the only way to stop them is to create a paradox - but not everyone will survive. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Karen Gillan insisted on reading Amy's afterword to Matt Smith when his reaction was filmed. They were not expecting it to be in front of a crowd in Central Park, and Smith said he had to "treat this like a play". Because the content was so secret, Gillan had to read very quietly and Smith could not hold the real page because a spectator might take a picture of it. Gillan found that she only had one page of the script, and had to improvise the rest. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Sam Garner: [voice over as a typewriter prints the words] New York, the city of a million stories. Half of them are true, the other half just haven't happened yet. "Statues," the man said, "living statues that moved in the dark."
