Dr. Who, Weeping Angels take Manhattan by storm

They're not in Cardiff any more.
The cast of "Dr. Who" took in many of the sights while filming in New York City this week. The Doctor, Amy and Rory visited Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Tudor City Plaza and Times Square. The episode will mark the return of the Weeping Angels.

"It's just that it's a different backdrop for the story," showrunner Steven Moffat told BBC America. "Something about Weeping Angels in New York seems to make sense to me. It's not to appeal to an American audience, particularly - they don't come to Doctor Who to see themselves, they come to Doctor Who to see us.

"We're not going to go there and film in the backstreets like we'd find in Cardiff, that would be a mistake!"

No word on whether anyone tried to sell Moffat the bridge.
