I HAD TO MAKE A GIF BECAUSE I COULDN’T FIND ONE
AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO SAW THIS
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.
Most of it? Not sure about that. Maybe let’s just give them both huge credit. Because anyone would have a tough time metatextualising a crap script.
Hooray for teamwork.

Today is the first day of the Doctor Who World Tour, it’s a chance for fans and the press to get to meet Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman and Steven Moffat, and talk over what is about to happen in Season Eight, including the world premiere of the first episode, “Deep Breath.”
To celebrate the occasion, which began in Cardiff earlier today, and to prepare London travelers for the imminent arrival of the new season on August 23, Transport For London have devoted one of their passenger information boards in the Underground to a very familiar image indeed. [x]
And it’s not the first time!

"It’s not his powers, it’s not his costume, it’s not his heritage. It’s that, unlike his myriad counterparts, he has more faith is us than we have in ourselves […] that faith elevates and redeems the human race.
Notice how the men and women of Superman’s world, from Perry White to Jimmy Olsen to even the loutish Steve Lombard, have so clearly been fortified with Superman’s courage and reverence for truth and life. And most important, watch how Superman achieves his ultimate victory - not with a swing of his invulnerable first but with a gift of understanding. In every fight, Superman punches when he must and grapples when he has to, but at the end of every battle, he wins his best and most decisive victories when he allows his foes to see their world - our world - through his eyes.
When Superman, without a second’s hesitation, takes time from his world-building feats to embrace and comfort a suicidal young girl. When he tells her, "you’re much stronger than you think you are", they become the most moving words we have ever read in Superman history. And they are perfect because they reveal, in one sentence, the fundamental secret of Superman and why we love him so:
Gods achieve their power by encouraging us to believe in them.
Superman achieves his power by believing in us.”
Mark Waid, 2008
