Why can the TARDIS go back to the Doctor in "Blink"?

It wasn't the fact of Amy and Rory going back in time that rendered them inaccessible, nor was it that the Weeping Angels sent them there. it was specifically that the Doctor knew, from the presence ...

Would a Weeping Angel float through space if it was in outer space due to no gravity?

If you watch the Series 5 episode Flesh and Stone, there's a part near the end where the Angels are shown falling as the artificial gravity in the ship fails due to them draining its power. This shows ...

In "Angels Take Manhattan", why couldn't The Doctor just shatter/laser-cut the angel's stone arm and release River?

An Angel survived crashing into a planet during the events of the Byzantium. There's one survivor. There's a thing in the belly of that ship that can't ever die. The Time of Angels What makes you ...

What type of paradox kills Weeping Angels?

Angels can also be starved to death - they literally waste away, their forms decaying, looking like erosion. The time frame needed to do so in unknown. The way they feed is somewhat unclear - in ...

In the Angels Take Manhattan, The Doctor said that New York is the city that never sleeps and so a unique food source for the angels. Really?

From the 1920s to roughly the 1960s, New York was the most heavily populated city on the planet. There were more people living there in that time period than anywhere else, including Bangkok, Tokyo ...

In the Angels Take Manhattan, The Doctor said that New York is the city that never sleeps and so a unique food source for the angels. Really?

According to the script, you are mistaken, the Doctor does not say New York is unique RIVER: It's like they've taken over every statue in the city. DOCTOR: The Angels take Manhattan because ...

Are the Weeping Angels really trapped?

Rapidly alternating states. I am assuming that the logic of observation occurs instantaneously. Also, for simplicity sake, let's say one thousanth of a second is the smallest unit of time. 0.001s: ...

How did the Weeping Angels get the TARDIS key?

tl;dr: We don't know, because it happens off-screen, but it most likely came from The Doctor himself. The key thing to understand about Blink is that entire episode is cyclical. From Sally Sparrow's ...

Can Weeping Angels die of old age?

Unknown, but they're pretty long-lived It's an idea that's never been explored on the show, or in any of the prose books as far as I can tell. The closest we've come are the Angels in "The Time of ...

What if a Weeping Angel is observed from a different point in time?

Let's take this bit by bit: What if the video of a Weeping Angel is observed let's say from the future or the past? This is confusing, because normal videos are always of the past. Are you talking ...

Do Weeping Angels continue to age while they are stone?

Probably not, we know that the angels are in stone forms because they got a quantum lock. That means their atoms are "frozen", they don't function nor ages. From tardis wikia : The quantum-locking ...

Procreation of Weeping Angels

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....

Procreation of Weeping Angels

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: Like @Valorum said in the comment, if they reproduce like humans (...

In the Angels Take Manhattan, The Doctor said that New York is the city that never sleeps and so a unique food source for the angels. Really?

Other answers have pointed out that New York City is one of the largest cities in the world (although no longer the largest), and that the Doctor simply says this is the largest food source the Angels ...

In "Angels Take Manhattan", why couldn't The Doctor just shatter/laser-cut the angel's stone arm and release River?

The doctor only has a sonic screwdriver, not a laser beam. They would state that bringing and setting the equipment would take time. Agreed on the fact that this episode tries do manage Angel related ...

Why can the TARDIS go back to the Doctor in "Blink"?

The issue with New York was that there was SO MUCH time travel going on, and so many paradoxes (paradoces?) occurring at once that a mass of chronal scar tissue had built up. Rory seeing himself, the ...

Can Weeping Angels See In the Dark?

In Doctor Who "The Time of Angels" 11 shoots out a light thing in the sky and a bunch of Weeping Angels pretty much live in caves which presumably would make them able to see in the dark.

Can Weeping Angels die of old age?

In Blink, the Doctor says that the angels are "as old as the universe, or very nearly." That suggests that old age doesn't do them in. The objection here would be that perhaps he's referring to the ...
