Amazing episode
1 September 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I am writing this comment straight after watching the episode. Having seen a lot of Doctor Who in my time, I can say that I have never seen beings as genuinely creepy as the weeping angels in this story. They are done so simply, yet there is created an amazing tension and air of foreboding. Full marks to the writer for his imagination (as evidenced by his Girl in the Fireplace story from the last series). Much as I love watching David Tennant, his limited presence in this episode did not detract from my enjoyment of it. This is a truly compelling, brilliant piece of television that takes the series to a whole new level.
