I was on the way back from a trip and passing through NYC that day, but with a big suitcase, I wasn't in the mood to go all the way to the Park for it. I live on Long Island.

I went the next day. Brooklyn Bridge Park we went on a whim and were lucky, because we nearly gave up after two hours of stalking around, we found some security guard and asked about filmings in the park and he said 'I don't know, some show called Doctor Who...they were supposed to start at 3, but it got post-poned'...we found the catering truck and sat in Starbucks...where the film crew came in and we noticed some people.

We actually went hunting again, and saw Karen. My friend and I were whispering: HOMG! It's Karen...you can't miss that hair, it's so ginger!

The Park was small...10 fans at most and there was a father and his son there, the kid had a Sonic Screwdriver and a few people from the film crew came over and spoke to them and stuff. Matt and Karen actually walked past us and said: Hi. My friends and I were all gobsmacked and also said 'hi', but could barely move. I didn't notice if they smelled nice or not, I was too 'OMG, Matt and Karen were inches from me!'

We then went to Tudor City, which was a zoo. It was hard to see anything, but Matt, Karen and Arthur came out to thank the fans for the support and Arthur was in all his glory taking pictures of us. I think they were really amazed that so many people showed up for an evening shoot...it was already getting chilly at that point, about 8 PM...and they were filming until 1 AM. They did the scene where Garner drives and walks to Winter Quay. Rory being zapped (probably to Winter Quay, which got cut) and River driving and Amy and the Doctor running to get Rory at Winter Quay. It was Tudor City, not Battery Park as said in the episode.

My camera died after Brooklyn Bridge Park, I forgot to charge my camera.

Awesome!! They were really nice the first day as well, and a bit shocked at the turnout. Matt kept taking pictures and video of us as well. I don't think they've ever had to deal with a crowd quite like this. I wish they had flown Alex out as well, because the so-called stand-in they got for her was ridiculous. That and I just want to meet Alex. ^_~

Yeah. I do too. I'm secretly hoping that she'll be at Gally or I'll run into her at some point.

We were hoping that Alex would be there. I wasn't there with the stand-in. I couldn't even see into the car to see the stand-in, it was just too dark at that point.

Someone got a photo and put it on Twitter. The stand-in was a man in a curly wig! Oh, come on! I'm sure you could have asked any woman in the crowd to pretend to be Alex and they'd gladly volunteer.

I know someone who is Alex's height and naturally has blonde curly hair, but it her curls are too loose.

I um ... have an hourglass figure under the fat? Yeah, that's all I got. *pokes at my brown hair* I also have a better wig than the stand-in did because I dressed as River for Halloween and a con here.

Haha, yeah...I'm short...with right now, ginger hair...and a bit smaller all around...I cosplay as Amy, but sometimes as River. I curled my own wig and I say it looks pretty damn good.

Sadly my thighs are a bit too big for Amy, but oh well...
