We don't doubt that fans of BBC's Doctor Who were shedding a few tears as they watched 'The Angels Take Manhattan' - the episode which saw Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill's characters bow out of the show.
However it could have been a whole lot worse after Doctor Who writer Steven Moffat admitted that he thought about killing the characters off.
Speaking about the exit of Doctor Who's companions, who were sent back in time by the Weeping Angels, Moffat told the Radio Times:
"So many times over those mad few days [of finishing the script], the fate of the Ponds changed. Alive, dead, alive, dead. Everything was wrong. Nothing felt right. Nothing felt inevitable."

Recalling the moment he knew how to send Karen and Arthur's characters off, Moffat continued:
"About four o'clock in the morning - with the gaspingly late script promised to the production team in a few hours - I remembered 'The Eleventh Hour'... and the single moment we've been heading for, since the very beginning."
What did you think of 'The Angels Take Manhattan'? Was it a fitting episode to bid farewell to Amy and Rory?
