Over the years, the Doctor has had to fight dozens of mighty enemies on Doctor Who: from Sontarans to Daleks to Cybermen, and more recently the Weeping Angels. But now our good ol' Time Lord is about to fight the mother of them all: the Statue of Liberty.

We already knew that our good Doctor (Matt Smith) was set to battle the Weeping Angels alongside the Ponds yet again in a season-seven episode later this fall, and we already heard rumblings that the famous Statue of Liberty was—itself—a massive Weeping Angel.

A report over at the Daily Star seems to support this theory and the one that this will be the episode in which Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) will make their teary farewells to the popular sci-fi series.

The Daily Star states:

The Doctor and companions Amy and Rory travel to America to battle a new army of Weeping Angels.

And they get a massive shock when the 305ft-tall statue in New York harbour turns out to be the biggest one of them all.

Voted the BBC show's scariest-ever monsters, the killer statues spring to life only when they are not being watched.

And if fans of the series are not hiding behind the sofa, they will also need to get their hankies out.

It's in the Weeping Angels episode that Amy and Rory (played by Karen Gillan, 24, and Arthur Darvill, 28) bow out in tragic circumstances.

Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has warned us that : "There will be a final showdown with the Weeping Angels. Not everyone gets out alive. And I mean it this time!"

Everyone, get ready to take out your hankies and box of tissues. We also mean it this time.

So, what do you guys think about the Statue of Liberty being a massive Weeping Angel? Will you now think twice about blinking around the U.S.'s most recognizable landmark? We sure will!
