How do Weeping Angels reproduce? Are the cherubs supposed to be juvenile Weeping Angels?

  • 7
    I'd be amazed if there's any information at all about this. I'd honestly expect the answer to just be "we don't know".

    @Fivesideddice, given that the eleventh Doctor has already declared them the deadliest, most powerful, most malevolent lifeform evolution has ever produced, I'd presume that they have been subject to evolution via natural selection like other lifeforms. That would necessarily entail procreation. Moreover, it's not like they are absolutely immortal no matter what, they have to sustain themselves and they can indeed die of starvation. Wouldn't procreation, then, be the most successful strategy to ensure the continued existence of their species? Or at least that is my train of thought anyway. May 24, 2020 at 1:02

In "The angels take Manhattan" it's suggested, that the angels took over the other New York statues. So it seems they procreate by assimilating other statues. But how that works, is not said.

There is not information (that I could find) about how Weeping Angels are created. I can think of a few ideas of how they reproduce:

  1. Like @Valorum said in the comment, if they reproduce like humans (aka sexual intercourse), they need to make sure there is no eye contact (turning the lights off or closing their eyes).

  2. There is a possibility that there is a finite number of Weeping Angels (no one says they reproduce. The babies, for example, may not be babies but just look like that).

  3. They may be a result of something we don't know about (like the big bang or some sort of sonic sculpting).
