Storyline

The Doctor, Amy, Dr. Song and the remaining soldiers manage to escape from the crashed ship and into the forest. The Angels attempt to create a rift in time and space much as the Doctor had found in Amy's room when they first met. Amy meanwhile is counting down from 10 minutes and the Doctor has determined that an Angel has taken over her mind. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The blue in Amy's bedroom was an idea of Adam Smith to show that it was inspired by the TARDIS from Amy's encounter with the Doctor when she was young. See more »

Goofs

In 'Blink' it is established that if the Angles look at each other, they remain frozen. This is why they always cover their eyes. However, here, they can move (even in their stone form) while other Angles are looking at them. See more »

Quotes

Octavian: Our mission is to make this wreckage safe and neutralise the Angels. Until that is achieved...
River Song: Father Octavian, when the Doctor's in the room, your one and only mission is to keep him alive long enough to get everyone else home. And trust me, it's not easy. Now, if he's dead back there, I'll never forgive myself, and if he's alive, I'll never forgive him. And Doctor, you're standing right behind me, aren't you?
The Doctor: Oh, yeah.
River Song: I hate you.
The Doctor: You don't.

Taken together with last week's episode, this 2-part Doctor Who story is excellent. The season's plot arch is definitely driven forward. The dialog in this episode is superbly written by Steven Moffat. There is quite a lot of suspense and one can easily see why the British often talk about their shared childhood memories of hiding behind the sofa during Doctor Who. It's wonderfully scary (though NOT at all gory) AND completely delightful. If you've ever enjoyed Doctor Who, odds are you'll absolutely love this. Episodes like this are why Doctor Who is considered to be the best series on television by so many people around the world.
