The Weeping Angels have gone from an incredibly creepy one-off villain into creatures that, like the Daleks before them, have lost any ability to inspire fear. They are only terrifying if they obey the rules that make them feel real … and these angels never do. They attack you in an instant if you blink, but Rory and Amy can look away from them for a good minute to debate how to defeat them without any dire consequences. They zap you back in time if they touch you, unless you’re River Song, in which case they just grab hold of your wrist and don’t let go. They always cover their eyes to protect themselves from being quantum locked, except when they don’t. They turn to stone when observed, but can cross a huge, vibrant city full of people with no problems. They only send people back in time when they are weak, otherwise they just kill them (a la Season 5), but when they’re superpowerful in New York, they stick to the back-in-time plan. And it’s lucky that there are no pictures of New York City landmarks, since an image of an angel is an angel and all.
Wouldn’t one-way mirror helmets completely disable Weeping Angels? A continuous reflection from a physical, unpowered object that they cannot influence with their voodoo, while the wearer can happily frolic among a field of the damn things.
DON’T LOOK AWAY, DON’T TURN YOUR BACK. I KNOW IT’S HARD TO STARE AT THAT FACE BUT YOU HAVE TO KEEP LOOKING. IF IT TOUCHES YOU YOUR IQ IS GONE
I’m pretty sure it’s only me weeping when I see that face. Can we get one where he has his moustache? Now that’s a face even a mother couldn’t love.
