Amy And Rory's Last Doctor Who Episode - Pictures, Video, Interesting New Details

Filming is underway in Cardiff for the fifth episode in next year’s Doctor Who, the one that Moffat has declared to be the final episode for Amy and Rory. Shooting will soon move to New York, where the episode is set, and it seems that even the Cardiff shooting is for Big Apple scenes.

Beyond this point, things might be a little bit spoilery. But not much.

We already know that the episode is to feature Weeping Angels. Loads of jokes have been made about the Statue of Liberty being a giant Weeping Angel, and I’ve even had two e-mails from strangers telling me that this really is the case but neither responded to further enquiries and I reckon they’re just trying it on. I guess we’ll have to wait and find out.

There’s definitely plenty of smaller Weeping Angels to be seen. These pics come from the flickr account of one Alun Vega.

Looking at all of the details, it seems that three separate scenes were shot here: the man in the hat enters the building; Rory enters the building; Amy and the Doctor enter the building. Three separate, brisk sequences of people entering this building.

The scene with the man in the hat is, apparently, scene 5. You can read this on the clapperboard.

The plaque reading “Winter Quay” is not part of the location, generally, and has been added.

And here’s some video from the same night shoot, complete with… irrelevant commentary, at times.

So The Doctor and Amy are in something of a hurry. As usual.

The young lady who shot that video also posted some photos of the next day’s filming (which makes it yesterday) to her Livejournal, showing the TARDIS out front of La Maison du Pond.

And there we have it. Here’s hoping that New Yorkers are as inquisitive.

Final note: in the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine there’s an interview with Caroline Skinner, the show’s Executive Producer, in which she refers to this episode. Here’s the most interesting bit:

The way that Steven has written the relationship between Amy and Rory in that episode is so beautiful… I’m crying less from the shock value of the scene in which they actually go, and more from my overall investment in those characters.

Scene singular, in which they both go. Interesting?
