I’ve been in pins and needles all week waiting for part two of the incredible cliffhanger we were left with last week in The Time of Angels! Here is this week’s roundup of pictures, videos and Spoilers from the Doctor Who Universe!
Series 5 – Episode 5 – Flesh and Stone Review Schedule
As we have in previous weeks, we will watch Flesh and Stone as it airs and then write up our review as soon as possible, which should be mid afternoon on Saturday – US Time. So, check back with us then or just watch our feeds for the update.
Flesh and Stone Synopsis
Here’s this week’s official synopsis:
There’s no way back, no way up and no way out. Trapped among an army of Weeping Angels, the Doctor and his friends must try to escape through the wreckage of a crashed space liner, in the fifth epsiode of Doctor Who, written by Steven Moffat. Meanwhile, in the forest vault, the Doctor’s companion, Amy Pond, finds herself facing an even more deadly attack.
Video Intro from Flesh and Stone
As they have in previous week’s – the BBC have released a special intro video to the episode worth watching for Spoilery goodness.
This week, it’s introduced by River Song herself – Alex Kingston.

Karen Gillan Doesn’t Want to be a Superhero
The excellent i09 sci-fi blog has a great interview with Karen Gillan where they talk about Amy Pond, her abandonment issues and thoughts on becoming a ‘superhero.’
Here’s an excerpt from the interview:
When we first meet Amy she’s a little girl. But the grown-up Amy also ages two years in “The Eleventh Hour” and we hear you’ll be playing a version of Amy who’s another five years older as well. What’s it like playing the same character at different ages?
It’s interesting, because we meet her at different points of her life. When we first meet her, obviously, I’m not playing that Amy. But what we see is a kind of accepting little girl, who says, “Okay, right, you’re a time traveler, okay.” And then we meet her when she’s older, for various reasons, she’s very cynical and skeptical. So we see different aspects of her and how the Doctor has affected her.
