Tonight, the mid-series finale of Series 7 of Doctor Who will air. It will feature the return of the Weeping Angels and River Song. It is also the last episode with Amy and Rory appearing as the regular companions. Here is the synopsis from the BBC Press Office:
The Doctor’s heart-breaking farewell to Amy and Rory – a race against time through the streets of Manhattan, as New York’s statues come to life around them… With Rory’s life in danger, the Doctor and Amy must locate him before it’s too late! Luckily, an old friend helps them and guides the way.
I’ll write a review once I get a chance to see the episode and once I recover from Weeping Angel shock! Are you excited for the episode? Tell us in the comments!

Just now, I watched the newest episode of Doctor Who: The God Complex. It was a thrilling, creepy episode that was full of new monsters at every turn. I was a little disappointed because the Doctor Who site, along with all its trailers and clips, boasted the return of the Weeping Angels. They were really scary in The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone, so I was excited for another appearance. They did appear, for about one and a half minutes! Other than that, the idea was great, the story made for a nice thriller, but it was a bit anti-climactic. Although we can guess what was in the Doctor’s room, we never got to see it, and the action did begin to slow in the end, in preparation for the Doctor’s grand farewell! Being a relatively new Whovian (starting with Series 5), I started out with Amy (and Rory) being the Doctor’s companions. Even though we’ll definitely see them again in this series and the next, it was a little sad to see them go.
