"Don't Blink. Blink and you're dead. Don't turn your back. Don't look away. And don't Blink. Good Luck." These cryptic messages left on 17 DVD's leave Sally Sparrow on a journey to assist the Doctor and Martha Jones, who are trapped in 1969. But Sally is in 2007, and they won't meet until 2008. Strange? Unusual? Not if you are the Doctor. Written by docfester

The Doctor and Martha were purposely not featured in this story so both actors could concentrate on the final three stories "Utopia", "The Sound Of Drums", and "Last Of The Time Lords." See more »


Throughout the episode the speed of the Weeping Angels varies dramatically. The Doctor describes them as "faster than you could believe" and in one scene they are apparently able to cross from a building on one side of the street to one on the other side in the time it takes a character to blink. In the rest of the episode however they show an inability to cross a small room in a similar time frame. See more »


Sally Sparrow: How can you know what I'm gonna say?
The Doctor: [on the DVD] Look to your left.
Larry Nightingale: [Sally turns to see Larry writing something down] What does he mean by look to your left? I've written tons about that on the forums. I reckon it's a political statement.
Sally Sparrow: He means you. What are you doing?
Larry Nightingale: I'm writing in your bits. That way I've got a complete transcript of the entire conversation. Wait until this hits the net! This'll explode the egg forums!

This is the best episode of Doctor Who I can remember!
11 June 2007 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

After family of blood, which was frankly excellent, this episode was, in my eyes, truly superb on so many points. It was so good in fact, that I finally signed up to IMDb after having trusted the user's opinions for a few years now, just to give it 10/10 and a smashing review! The story was just perfect, the effects were relatively simple but yet highly effective (exactly how it should be!), and the acting was spot on. This must have been the best episode I've seen probably since the beginning of the next-gen Doctor Who 2 years ago. Don't get me wrong, episodes such as Doomsday in series 2 were really excellent, but this episode really brought back the old Doctor Who feal in terms of sheer simplicity with maximum effect. I'm old enough (in my mid 20's in fact) not to have had nightmares in many years, but after this episode, I came close, having had my first bad dream since I can remember!! Really worth watching; The DVD of the whole series should be out in the autumn I guess, and i'll be buying it just to see this episode again!
