Storyline

"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

Quotes

The Doctor: Fascinating race, the Weeping Angels. The only psychopaths in the universe to kill you nicely. No mess, no fuss, they just zap you into the past and let you live to death. The rest of your life used up and blown away in the blink of an eye. You die in the past, and in the present they consume the energy of all the days you might have had, all your stolen moments. They're creatures of the abstract. They live off potential energy.
Billy Shipton: What in God's name are you talking about?
Martha Jones: Trust me, just nod when ...

Utterly Brilliant
27 June 2007 | by eoinsmith001See 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!
