Moffat noted some other changes from the original script, including how it ended on a more ambiguous note for Sally (Carey Mulligan) and Larry. It’s not the first time Moffat has mused on Sally’s fate in the episode. In a 2017 interview, he remarked how he wished he’d changed the ending so that Sally had ended up getting whisked away to another time by a surprise Weeping Angel in her store. It would’ve been an appropriately dark Doctor Who ending, but I’m glad they kept her fate a bit happier. It put more of the focus on the montage about Weeping Angels being everywhere, which was much scarier in the long run.

Doctor Who is set to return in the upcoming holiday special, featuring Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor.
