The New York Record

Amy Pond reading The New York Record in Central Park (TV: The Angels Take Manhattan)

The New York Record was a New York City daily newspaper. On 1 November 1930 it reported on the mystery of men missing from the city's Hooverville. (TV: Daleks in Manhattan)

In 2012, Amy Pond read an issue of the newspaper while visiting the city with the Eleventh Doctor and Rory Williams. The headline reported that the Detroit Lions won the Superbowl. (TV: The Angels Take Manhattan)

Behind the scenes Edit

The New York Record is not a real newspaper. Although the edition Martha Jones reads is explicitly dated, the one that Amy Pond reads is not. This allows for the possibility that Amy is not reading a 2012 edition at all, even though the Doctor does specifically state that they are in 2012 New York.

In the real world, the Superbowl headline would be out of place for several reasons. The Superbowl is played at the end of the NFL season, generally the first or second weekend of February, which is winter in New York. The appearance of Central Park in the episode clearly suggests it is spring at the time. Also, as of 2013, the Detroit Lions of the National Football League have never appeared in the Superbowl.
