The Statue of Liberty will turn into a deadly Weeping Angel in the new series of 'Doctor Who'
The Statue of Liberty will turn into a Weeping Angel in the new series of 'Doctor Who'.
The iconic New York landmark will feature in the series finale when the Doctor - played by Matt Smith and his companions Amy and Rory travel to America to battle a new army of the deadly creatures.
The trio get a huge shock when they discover the biggest Weeping Angel - killer statues which spring to life when they are not being watched - of all is the 305ft-high Statue of Liberty.
And the episode is believed to be the one where Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) leave the show.
Programme chief Steven Moffat has said: "There will be a final showdown with the Weeping Angels.
"Not everyone gets out alive. And I mean it this time!"
The Weeping Angels have been voted the show's scariest ever adversaries but current Time Lord Matt admits he has a "soft spot" for them.
He said: "They were the first monsters I worked with and I have a soft spot for them.
"Weirdly, because they don't really speak, there is something even more ruthless about them."
