A 305ft Weeping Angel? *SPOILERS*
According to the British Tabloid 'The Daily Star' the Statue Of Liberty is set to be turned into a deadly Weeping Angel in the up and coming episodes of Doctor Who Season 7. Where as I dont personaly take much of what comes from the Daily Star as factual, this seemed a little to juicy not to report.
The iconic New York landmark will feature in the finale of the new series this autumn.
The Doctor and companions Amy and Rory travel to America to battle a new breed of Weeping Angels.
As if the Angels arn't scary enough, they get a massive shock when the 305ft tall statue in New York harbour turns out to be the biggest one of them all.
Voted the BBC show’s scariest-ever monsters, the killer statues spring to life only when they are not being watched.
And if fans of the series are not already hiding behind the sofa, they will also need to get their hankies out.
It’s in this Weeping Angels episode that Amy and Rory (played by Karen Gillan, 24, and Arthur Darvill, 28) bow out in tragic circumstances. Something which we reported back in December of 2011: http://myuntemperedschism.blogspot.com/2011/12/wishing-you-pond-farewell.html
Moffat has warned: “There will be a final showdown with the Weeping Angels. Not everyone gets out alive. And I mean it this time!” But Time Lord Matt Smith, 28, admits the Weeping Angels are his favorite adversaries.
He tells the new Doctor Who Magazine: “They were the first monsters I worked with and I have a soft spot for them. Weirdly, because they don’t really speak, there is something even more ruthless about them.”
Something to remember is that the Statue has featured in Doctor Who before, in the episode "Daleks in Manhattan" so was it a 'Weeping Angel' then? I know a lot of inconsistencies with past seasons can be somewhat explained as "The Universe was rebooted" (Big Bang Two) but I dont know.
Like I said at the beginning, its rather difficult for me to take anything the Daily Star has to say as factual... I guess the only way we will really know is by watching this Autumn.
