Storyline

"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

Quotes

The Doctor: Fascinating race, the Weeping Angels. The only psychopaths in the universe to kill you nicely. No mess, no fuss, they just zap you into the past and let you live to death. The rest of your life used up and blown away in the blink of an eye. You die in the past, and in the present they consume the energy of all the days you might have had, all your stolen moments. They're creatures of the abstract. They live off potential energy.

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!
