"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

10 June 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is, without doubt, the cleverest episode of Doctor Who since it was revived. It's also a contender for the scariest, giving a very definite challenge to last years The Impossible Planet. When I saw that Steven Moffat was writing this one, I knew we were in for a treat, since he wrote arguably the best episodes of the previous two series. But I never thought for a second it'd be this good.

I had already been blown away by the trailer for this episode alone (which is here if you want to see it - but seriously, that gives no justice to how good the actual episode is. There's one part where the main character Sally (played outstandingly by Carey Mulligan - let's see more of her in the future!) appears to be talking to the Doctor through a DVD, and that actually had me genuinely wondering how. There's so much of this episode that really grabs you and pulls you in, and you just can't pull yourself away from it. And the final 15 minutes

  • especially the Doctors incredibly frightening "Don't blink!" speech,

is just mesmerising.

Again, hats must be doffed to the writing genius that is Steven Moffat. The BBC MUST hang on to him at all costs.
