It’s no news that Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darville) will be exiting the world of Doctor Who this season. It’s not even news that episode 5 will herald their departure. What is news is that some pictures from said episode, along with a bit of fan-shot video, have made their way to the net.
The pictures that were released show fans a little bit of what to expect from Moffat this season and from this episode in particular. What do they show? Glad you asked!
The return of the infamous Weeping Angels!
Yes, this may be a fan-boy’s perspective, but the Weeping Angels, created by Moffat way back in season 3, are probably the best bad-guy that has crossed the Doctor’s path since the Daleks.
As a bonus, there’s a bit of footage shot by a fan who happened to be standing around when the episode was being filmed. You can see the actors doing their thing in the video, though not much else is evident.
The presence of the angels gives rise to some serious speculation on what will become of Amy and Rory. Moffat has already hinted at a sad departure for the two companions, and now we can at least guess at why that’s the case. Will they be sent hurtling into the past? Will the angels simply be too much for them and they’ll decide they need to get off the Doctor’s inter-dimensional crazy-train?
Fans will have to wait for those answers, barring the leakage of more spoilers.
