In less than a week we’ll be bidding goodbye to The Doctor’s longest lasting companions – of the 2005 reboot, anyhow. The Ponds, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill will be leaving the TARDIS for good and fans are bracing themselves for a heart-wrenching and tearful goodbye. In the lead up to the mid-season finale several hints, teasers, and clues have been released for us to ponder. Collected by SFX and Doctor Who TV here are 26 SPOILER-laden clues as to what’s happening in “The Angels Take Manhattan.” The bolding is courtesy of Blastr who highlighted the particularly curious and cryptic of these teasers. Be wary of spoilers and put on your thinking caps,

It’s a good ‘un. Great central concept, good new twist on the Angels’ MO

It’s a weepie; Moffat was telling the truth about that

It’s a truly memorable companions’ goodbye episode, but it doesn’t go over-the-top

There’s a very long and very creepy precredits teaser

There are some spectacular effects, including a TARDIS materialization

One of the most memorable images doesn’t quite make sense if you think about it, but it’s a bloody good image so best not to think about it too much

Be prepared for any kids in the room watching to issue a continual stream of, “But they looked away! He blinked! She was looking!”

The film noire feel is spot on

Ming makes an appearance

There are a lot of Moffat’s hastily delivered, off-the-cuff explanations, so pay attention

The Doctor makes some final checks

If you want to read too much into one revelation, Steven Moffat probably doesn’t consider episode titles as spoilers

New York feels very underpopulated

Some wrist action may be vital to the future

Stay till after the end credits

Lightbulbs make another appearance

“I won’t let them take him”

A family trip to the pub is ruined

“Just you wait until my husband gets home”

The Doctor wears reading glasses now. Reading glasses are cool

“There’s a car out front. Shall we steal it?”

There is a very distasteful line read by The Doctor at the beginning

“Rory, do I have noticeable lines on my eyes now?”

The Doctors pockets keep getting deeper and deeper

“Amelia, I am so, so sorry”

There is a scene that is very reminiscent of one from 2010′s “Cold Blood”

All right, lay on me with your wild speculations! What does this all mean!? What the hell is “wrist action”? What could be this “distasteful line read by The Doctor”? Any thoughts?

“The Angels Take Manhattan” airs on BBC One, BBC America and SPACE this Saturday at varied times depending on time zone.
