statue of liberty

The facts are in and the news across the pond is that Doctor Who (Matt Smith) will be battling Weeping Angels in season seven of the popular series. The Daily Star reports that:

The Doctor and companions Amy and Rory travel to America to battle a new army of Weeping Angels.

And 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 hiding behind the sofa, they will also need to get their hankies out.

It’s in the Weeping Angels episode that Amy and Rory (played by Karen Gillan, 24, and Arthur Darvill, 28) bow out in tragic circumstances.

Does anyone else hope this is a nod to Ghostbusters?

Doctor Who battling the Statue of Liberty as the largest weeping Angel in the Multiverse. While running around New York, the good Doctor needs to run into Louis Tully looking for Zuul and the Gatekeeper, that would blow many a nerdy mind.

Steven Moffat, the show runner has already warned us that:

“There will be a final showdown with the Weeping Angels. Not everyone gets out alive. And I mean it this time!”

The seventh season of Doctor Who looks to be a lively one with tons of stuff happening left and right. Let the rest of us NerdBastards know what you think is gonna happen in the comments section below.
