You now realize that the reason that the angels didn’t get her here is because THE CAMERA COUNTED AS SOMEONE WATCHING THEM.
And the only time the angels moved was when sally blocked them from the view of the camera
This episode breaks the fourth wall in more ways than one. This shows that even the audience can be part of a Doctor Who episode. Whovians, you’ve always wanted to be in an episode. ”Blink” was the first. You also hear the Doctor talking to you about the statues. The “Don’t Blink” speech we know by heart. And…what about the angel in the window? If Sally wasn’t looking at that one, then why didn’t it move?
Because we were watching it.
Reason number 1234567 why this episode was better than any other weeping angel episode
The director of that episode was Hettie MacDonald, massively talented woman and winner of multiple awards. Don’t lay “Blink”s amazingness on Moffat because most of it goes to her, especially the stuff at the meta-textual level you’re talking about here.
Thank you to my colleagues and everyone who gave me courage to be able to take action. I hope this can become a video that will not just end with laughter, but deliver the essence of the cause. Please share your interest and love with not only those diagnosed with Lou…
