Welcome to the A to Z blogging challenge! My theme is Doctor Who because its the topic my kids voted we do together. We're sticking with people, places, creatures, and episodes from the newer series starting with Christopher Eccleston's (#9) simply because we haven't watched all the Classics...yet.
You can find the list of other participants HERE. I'm #149.
Weeping Angels--First seen in the episode "Blink", which was brilliant. I've always thought statues a bit creepy and this only confirmed that fact. These creatures actually hid their eyes in order not to petrify each other by looking into each other's eyes. They are motionless when seen, but when you blink they move in for the "kill". If touched by an Angel, a person is usually sent back in time where they can live out their lives. Might not sound so bad until you realize why the Angel didn't actually kill you. They live off your time energy.
In the episode The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone Amy looked too long at an Angel and it was imprinted on her eye, thus slowly turning her into an angel.
My husband really wants to buy a life sized angel statue just to freak our kids out.
This clip has Spoilers!
(The Doctor,) the Widow and the Wardrobe--This was the 2011 Christmas special with Matt Smith. I've watched it many times and still cry. (For those visiting for the first time, I am a professed cry baby.) Madge is newly widowed, but she hasn't told her children yet because its Christmas. She wants them to be happy just a little longer. The Doctor comes to spread some joy with an adventure, which of course doesn't turn out as he planned.
This one made me cry.
