"Why did you lie to me?"
"When one's in love with an ageless god who insists on the face of a twelve-year-old, one does one's best to hide the damage."
-- The Eleventh Doctor and River Song, Doctor Who: "The Angels Take Manhattan"
My good friend and co-host Jesse Jackson and I are back with another episode of Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast! And this time, we're joined by special guest companion Devin Pike as we explore the Matt Smith story, "The Angels Take Manhattan"!
Exploring this Series Seven episode from 2012, Jesse, Devin and I discuss things like Devin calling in from his ride, Space City Comic Con in Houston, Steven Moffat's rewrites on the story and plotholes, Fixed Points in Time as a convenient story copout, Reverse the Polarity, the Statue of Liberty as a Weeping Angel, Weeping Angels sex, River Song being pardoned for a murder that never happened, rating Amy and Rory as companions, companions being specific to one Doctor, Steven Moffat's ultimate Scottish Doctor Who episode, the importance of the Doctor traveling with a companion, the Sting song "An Englishman in New York," the Doctor supposedly not being able to go back in time to get Amy and Rory, our Reverse the Polarity segment, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill at Fan Expo in Dallas, and more!
