It was Doctor Who night tonight. The episode was called Village of the Angels, so you can guess what it was about! The Weeping Angels are always scary. I think they are the scariest monsters in Doctor Who. From the cliffhanger to last weeks episode, a Weeping Angel managed to get into the TARDIS via Yaz's mobile phone, and took control of the TARDIS! The Doctor managed to rid the TARDIS of the Angel by shortcircuiting the TARDIS, but then said she now didn't know how long it would take to re-boot! She said they didn't know where they were, and they might have ended up where the Angel wanted them to be anyway! (They were!) After exciting the TARDIS, they found a couple outside trying to use the Police Box phone! They said they were looking for a little girl called Peggy who had gone missing. It turns out the TARDIS crew had turned up in 1967, in a small village. The Doctor's sonic screwdriver began to glow in her pocket, so she went to investigate what was causing that, leaving Dan and Yaz to deal with the couple looking for the little girl. Yaz came over all Police asking questions about the little girl, not all of which she could get an answer to. Dan and Yaz went to look in all Peggy's favourite spots, but Dan said, was that scarecrow there a minute ago? They both blinked and the scarecrow was closer - except ofcause it wasn't a scarecrow, was it! Ofcause not! It was a Weeping Angel! Yaz said not to blink - but that's not easy, and they both found themselves zapped into the past! Turns out they'd been zapped into 1901, and it wasn't long before they found the missing girl who had also been zapped back into the past by a Weeping Angel. Meanwhile the Doctor has discovered a Professor Jericho doing Psychic experiments on a lady called Claire (who we met briefly in the first episode). Turns out an Angel has taken residence inside Claire and it uses her to communicate with the Doctor. Apparently the Angel inside Claire is a renegade Angel who needs the Doctor's help! The Angel tells the Doctor that the other Angels are working for the Division! She tells her that she knows everything about the Division and about the Doctor's lost memories, if she'll help she'll give her her memories back! Before long the house is surrounded by Angels wanting to get in. They want to get at the Angel inside Claire The Professor throws something at the Doctor which brings her out from communication with the Angel. They bolt all the doors and windows but the Angels still manage to get in, so they barricade themselves in the cellar. The Doctor has found some plans of the house and there is a secret corridor leading out from the cellar so they plan to get out that way, but they Angels break through the exit they were hoping to leave by. But the Doctor tells Claire and the Professor to run while she keeps the Angels where they are by keeping her eye on them. But when they have gone the Doctor looks away - she's expecting to be sent back in time by an Angel, but then she looks round and that haven't moved - why? She just walks past them through the tunnel and outside. She knows there must be a reason why they just let her walk past. Meanwhile, Dan and Yaz have seen a strange anomaly in the sky in 1901. Then they come across another anomaly, where there seems to be an invisible wall and on the other side it is night! A lady comes across to talk from the other side, but she won't cross the divide. She tells the little girl that she won't be getting back to 1967 soon, in fact it won't be for another 66 years - because she says, I am you! Then the Professor gets zapped back to 1901 and appears beside Dan, Yaz and the little girl. On the other side of the divide The Doctor comes out of the tunnel to be greeted by a semi-circle of Weeping Angels! Yaz sees her and calls out. She says Doctor, we're trapped in 1901! The Professor looks shocked, and Dan says I think we should have broke that to you a little more gently! Claire tells the Doctor that the Weeping Angels have made a decision. They will release her - and take the Doctor instead! Then the Doctor turns to stone! Inbetween all this happening, Bel is searching for survivors and she finds this guy who knows where other survivors are, and they are going to be rescued by someone soon, who will appear on the mountain. Bel goes with him to look, but when their 'saviour' appears it's Azure! And their 'transport' is Passenger! Bel tries to explain to the guy that that's no saviour. She manages to get him away, but when he sees all the others 'rescued' by Passenger, he is not pleased. Bel explains to him that Azure is not their saviour and that Passenger is not transport, but a prison. She then leaves in her borrowed Lupis spaceship. After the theme tune starts at the end it stops midway through for a scene of Vinder asking the same guy that was with Bel if he's seen her. He said yes, and she's left you a message. The message was in the form of a hologram, but Bel was cut off before she could finish the message. She did say in her message that she loves Vinder. And then the theme continued where it had left off. The Next episode is called Survivors of the Flux. Will the Doctor be released from her stone prison? Will Dan and Yaz find their way back from 1901? Will Bel and Vinder be reunited? Will Karvanista come to Dan's rescue yet again? All will be revealed in the next exciting instalment! Wow! I'm exhausted after all that! Have a great night.

I did like DrWho tonight Sadly though, Whittaker will.escape. But I wonder this, Will any Angel who inhabits her still be inhabited lol when she has had her turn and another Doctor is born? This could be script writing at its best.
