"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

17 June 2007 | by (Walsall, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

At my age, I have been watching the Doctor avidly for 40 odd years and, like everyone have had favourite stories. They've all just been blown out of the water.

Moffatt had written probably the best episodes from the previous two series of the re-incarnated Doctor in "Girl In The Fireplace" and the scary "Empty Child", so I had great hopes of "Blink" when I saw he was the writer. I wasn't disappointed.

If you like science fiction, or even if you like traditional British horror, watch this brilliantly performed and written episode. And, oh yes, "Don't turn your back. Don't look away. And don't Blink".
