Unusual? Not if you are the Doctor. Written by docfester

Did You Know?


In the disc of the DVD release with "Blink" in it (disc 4) there is an Easter Egg on page 2 of scene selection of "Blink". It has the Doctor's Easter egg from the episode, unedited. To access it, you have to highlight "Blink" in the page and select it. Unlike other bonus scenes and deleted footage, the Easter egg remains "filmized" rather than being rendered on video, in keeping with it supposedly having been filmed in 1969. See more »


Sally Sparrow is in the house, she sees a key hanging from the angel's hand and goes forward to take it. First we see the front shot and the string is looped around the angel's hand. Cut to side shot and the string is hanging with no loop. Front shot again and the loop is back. Side shot where she actually takes the key and no loop. The position of the string may have been altered during shooting as having Sally unravelling the string to get the key would have taken several seconds and she really wanted to be out of the house as fast as possible.

Utterly Brilliant
27 June 2007 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Have you ever sat down to watch TV, and by a completely unexpected twist of fate, stumbled across something so utterly brilliant that it leaves you speechless? Entirely possible... but even less likely when you're watching a program you like, and think you know, and intended to watch just because its on every week. Honestly, I don't watch much TV; I know and like Doctor Who, but this episode just totally ambushed me. It really, really shows how excellent TV can be, and just how rubbish most TV is. I was on the edge of my seat by the end. Its pretty much a completely independent standalone episode, no prior knowledge or interest of Dr Who assumed. Its thrilling, relentless, ingenious, terrifying, and, once more because it deserves it, absolutely ingenious. Solid gold TV brilliance, and all the more amazing that I found it in the stale Saturday night line-up. Seek it out!
