Saturday marks a major milestone in Doctor Who — the last hurrah of the Doctor's companions, Amy and Rory Pond. As many viewers may already know, the goodbye takes place in a New York City filled with Weeping Angels, making for an ominous take on the moniker "The City That Never Sleeps."
I spoke to the show's cast at this year's Comic-Con about the departure of, arguably, the fans' favorite companions. And the Doctor himself, Matt Smith, recalled the filming of the episode in four brief words: "Sad. It was sad." While we stock up on tissues, click through for images from the episode and more firsthand set accounts from Karen Gillan and executive producers Caroline Skinner and Steven Moffat.
