Also a Youtube link if no one can get the site to work.

Oh my god! It is sad, but it does give you some closure with Brian. In my opinion, this would have been a better ending than the one that was aired. Rory was kind of shoved the side in most of the series, & the fact that this episode focused more on him, it should have ended with him narrating instead of Amy.

Yeah, I was wishing for closure with Brian glad we got it in someway.

@pie- They have been around for awhile, about last year in my mind I was thinking..soon the Doctor will have to change companions, because that is what the doctor does, but I never thought they would be killed though.
YES YES i just watched this crying

I'm not even that attached to the Ponds as a whole, just Rory and his da, so when I saw the short it affected me more than the end of Angels Take Manhattan. I'm glad they made it available to fans.

Yes I saw the P.S. smile

After I saw this episode last night, I felt so sad- I ran a search online about found this Wall Street Journal blog. ‘Doctor Who,’ Season 7, Episode 5, ‘The Angels Take Manhattan’: TV Recap

The comments were both positive and negative about the writing of the Amy and Rory's last episode. Moffat achieved success with this emotionally-charged ending but didn't please the more logic-minded viewers.

Yes, even to me it was odd how the Doctor couldn't visit Rory and Amy as they were growing old and stranded in New York. I mean- the temporal anomalies that prevented him from entering New York in 1938 should've been gone with Rory creating the paradox...and yet River is able to visit Amy and give her instruction to write the afterword??? (guess her little bracelet's stronger than the police box???? What???)

and damn you Rory for reading your own tombstone- should've just ignored it and kept walking. That scene was awkward to me 'cause he didn't just catch his tombstone from the corner of his eye- he turned like a 360 as if he forgot something. =___=;

It prompted me to re-watch Rose's last episode this morning. That was sad too, but I must admit- I liked Rose's ending better.

Rose saved the world from Daleks and Cybermen > Amy and Rory just jumped off the edge of the building.

plus, even with the anomalies, he could have picked them up at a different year. why not go to 1938. or hell. go to some other city in 1938 travel to new york via car or boat or whatever and get them? i mean...he can travel all of time and space... he shouldn't be stuck to landing only in new york in 1938. it just seems like he gave up so quickly.

dunno, this whole season so far has writing like this...

I must admit that part was not exactly logical. But I am willing to forget it because of the fix point that they have to die in the past because Amy made it a fix point ( but even Doctor has looped holed around fixed points) and for time-wimey wibbly wobble.

I dunno about the river song part, yeah she originally got there with her time vortex manipulator which was easier then the tardis and smaller, but I dunno, River song has always confused me because they are meeting backwards with his future being her past..Still can't wrap my head around that.

Seriously, and if he can't land the TARDIS in NYC, land it in Newark or CT and take the damned train into town. He's not allergic to public transit.

Did it make you guys cry? It made me sad all over again..still in mourning of the pounds. I think it is hard because they where my first companions.
That was very touching. I'm glad Amy lost her attitude about being unable to bear more children herself and adopted.

It made me cry, but happily as both Amy and Rory were finally able to have the family they so desired. While I know they were proud of Melody, they weren't able to raise her. She just regenerated and changed into that.

My first companion was Rose and that one killed me. This one was almost worse.
