Doctor Who Past-Present: Returning to Manhattan

Doctor Who: The Angels Take Manhattan
Tonight's mid-season finale of Doctor Who sees a return to Manhattan for The Doctor (Matt Smith) in both the present day and in the 1930 where he once again takes on the Weeping Angels in The Angels Take Manhattan. 

Meeting Steven Moffatt
More recently the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant) battled The Daleks there in The Daleks In Manhattan and lets not forget the Doctor's other American trips over the last five decades incuding a brief trek to The Empire State Building in 1965's William Hartnell tale The Chase and the ultimate New Year event in NYC during 1996's Paul McGann outing The Movie.

Fans who have quibbled about this series (which I have loved) shouldn't be too disappointed with tonight's episode from the pen of Steven Moffatt, which feature the return of River Song (Alex Kingston) and the departure of Amy and Rory (Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill).

Steven Moffatt and Carole Skinner
I went along to see a special screening of The Angels Take Manhattan on Wednesday  evening presented by BAFTA Cymru and the BBC. In attendance was also Doctor Who Executive Producers Steven Moffatt and Carole Skinner.

It was a magical evening particularly seeing such an atmospheric of Doctor Who meets film noir on the big screen!

You can read my full review of the event with a preview of tonight's episode over on the South Wales Argus website: Doctor Who Faces Life After The Ponds
