So, Amy and Rory are gone, and to avoid spoilers, that's all I'll say on the matter of their departure. It's not very easy for me to decide whether I like this episode or not, so I'll just make my problems known and then make my final judgement. First, some real-world annoyances: 1. No, Lady Liberty CANNOT be an angel. Angels are made of stone, yes? Lady Liberty is not. She is made of Copper, and honestly, I'm not willing to overlook this on the grounds that "it's a TV show". Why? Because you made her an angel...That didn't do a damn thing. Either get your facts straight, or make her have a purpose. 2. I don't know, man. I'd really like to think that someone would notice a giant national landmark stomping through New York. Again, I don't know. Maybe New Yorkers are just notoriously unobservant and no one told me. 3. Baby Angels? Okay. Make what is arguably the most creepy thing in Doctor Who creepier for no reason. For that matter, why add all these new Angels designs if they aren't going to play out? Moffat...Stop starting plots you can't close. 4. Build up the entire episode to how they'll go, then send them off in two minutes. Right...Right. Because the companions that have been with Eleven for his entire run so far deserved it. Oh wait...They didn't. 5. This is more of a season-wide issue, but...Stop padding the episodes. It seems like all of Series 7 so far builds up the problem for the entire episode, then resolves it in two, maybe three minutes. Perfect example? The Power of Three. What was accomplished? The Doctor did something fairly simple compared to his previous feats, and the problem was drawn out across the entire episode. What's worse? The Doctor was stumped. And then he wasn't. ...Brilliant? No, I've made up my mind. Series 7 is off to an abysmal start, save for a few moments. I hope it gets better...I really, truly do.
