Hey guys! What's up? So I decided to do every week reviews about Doctor Who episodes! :D So today I'm gonna make a review about the episode ''Blink''.

''Blink'' is the first episode I saw and turned me into a Whovian... I could say that is my favourite episode ever."Blink" is the tenth episode of the third series of Doctor Who and it was first broadcast on 9 June 2007 on BBC.

So in this episode the Doctor and Martha stuck in 1969 by the Weeping Angels. The Angels are "quantum locked", allowing them to move incredibly fast when unobserved but when they are seen they literally turn to stone...

Creepy! Ok,so in this episode we meet Sally Sparrow, just a random girl who enters an abandoned house to look for subjects to photograph. Suddenly he finds in the wall a message from the Doctor warning her about the Weeping Angels...

The message from the Doctor.
The message from the Doctor.

Sally returns the next day so she can explore the house further but this time she brings her friend Kathy Nightingale but Kathy disappears. At the same time a young man knocks at the door. He claims to be Kathy's grandson, and delivers a letter to Sally. The letter explains that Kathy suddenly found herself in the 1920s in Hull. She settled down with a husband and led a peaceful life and requests that Sally tell Kathy's brother Larry of her disappearance. Sally finds a Yale key hanging from the hand of one of the statues and takes it before leaving.

I really like Moffat's writing in this episode! :) So let's go on... Sally visits Larry at a DVD shop and finds that he has been documenting an "Easter egg" across seventeen apparently unrelated DVDs. These eggs contains videos about a man who calls himself ''The Doctor'' and having a conversation with the viewer... Sally takes he list with the 17 dvds and goes to the police station where she meets DI Billy Shipton, who explains that there have been several disappearances at the abandoned house and shows her an impound lot containing a locked fake police box. Sally leaves but then she remembers the key she found and returns to find that Billy and the phone box have disappeared. She immediately receives a call from a much older Billy, who is on his death bed at the hospital. She visits him, and he explains that after she left the lot he discovered the Angels trying to retrieve the police box. He then suddenly found himself in 1969, where he met the Doctor and was asked to relay a message to Sally decades later.

Ok so long story short Sally and Larry are in the abandoned house where she watches the easter eggs videos from the Doctor. The Doctor explains her that the Angels are "quantum locked", allowing them to move incredibly fast when unobserved but when they are seen they literally turn to stone. They cover their eyes to avoid looking at each other, giving them their weeping appearance. He warns Sally not to look away or even blink when they are around.

The Doctor tells them they are seeking his TARDIS to acquire its potential power. The Doctor comes to the end of the transcript, and Sally realises Larry has stopped writing it due to the presence of an Angel in the room. They make their way to the basement of the house and discover the Angels and the TARDIS. The Angels attack, and Sally and Larry use Sally's key to hide inside the TARDIS. Once in the control room, a hologram of the Doctor informs them that they have a control disk with them. Larry takes a now glowing DVD from his pocket and inserts it into the console. The TARDIS dematerialises, leaving a panicking Sally and Larry behind. With the TARDIS gone, the Angels have been tricked into looking at each other and have become permanently frozen as statues.

One year later, Sally and Larry have opened a DVD store together. Sally insists on keeping a folder of the events, but Larry wants her to move on and indicates he has feelings for her. Sally gently rebuffs him, and Larry steps out for an errand. Sally sees the Doctor and Martha hurriedly leave a taxi in front of the shop and goes outside to meet them. They don't recognise her, and she realises that they have yet to experience the events that sent them to the past. She hands the Doctor the folder, warning him that he will need it in his future. The Doctor and Sally say goodbye as Larry returns, surprised to see the man from the Easter egg. Sally and Larry return to the shop hand in hand, hinting that she is now ready for a romantic relationship.
