YMMV: Doctor Who S33 E05 "The Angels Take Manhattan"
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Murray Gold brings another beautiful piece, the climax of the episode is something you have to hear for yourself.
  • Love It or Hate It: This is an extremely polarizing episode. Some think that it was a touching and fitting send off for two of the most developed companions in the show's history. Others think that the whole plot relies on confusing and contradictory rules for time travel even by Doctor Who standards, and think that Amy and Rory's fate was nothing more than a Diabolus ex Machina ensuring that no companion in the new series can just walk away from the Doctor without a tragedy attached.
  • Narm: The Angel version of the Statue of Liberty comes off more as comical than frightening.
  • Paranoia Fuel: Remember how in "Blink", it was implied that Weeping Angels could look like any kind of statue, not just angels, and how "The Time of Angels"/"Flesh and Stone" made them all just look like angels? Well...this episode brings back the "any statue" angle. Like the Statue of Liberty.
