Saw this last November and a friend of mine made one very much like it for me. Ditching the Santa tree topper in favor of a ravenous, time-traveling monster this year.

Cheap to do, nice crafts project for those people into that sort of thing.

Could you get one at the local Family Dollar/Dollar General/(some store with 'Dollar' in the name) cheaper and with 'Made in China' stamped on the bottom? Probably. So what?

oh, shiat, right... haven't watched Doctor Who in a few years and stopped just about the time the angels showed up. I didn't realize they'd become a "thing". Did they continue to show up?

/haven't actually seen the above episode yet. There's an earlier 2-parter that adds to what they are, but I'm pretty sure that the original Blink cast now has angels in their eyeballs.

Weeping angel baby cherubs. I already was creeped out by cherubs in the first place. Saw an old painting at the Seattle art museum where the cherubs were just chubby baby heads with wings out the size, fark.

The correct answer, you condescending shiat*, would be something like: "It's one of the bad guys from Doctor Who."

Or, you could have just scrolled through the next couple of posts in the thread to see that I'd answered the question myself.

OK, the actual plot and new Angels were nice, but the ending pit of the episode after EVERYTHING WAS RESOLVED was what left an atrocious taste in my mouth

no, and that's weird, cos I see you taking my post as a personal attack.

no, the correct answer in a Doctor related, to the question you originally posed; "okay... why?

No, seriously, why?"

is the one I responded with - and i hit add comment instead of refresh, having delayed the adding comment by 5 mins to answer a call.

And, NO - you did not demonstrate the difference between a question and a personal attack.

That's fair. Don't worry, IIRC that's disclosed before the opening credits even roll.

But let me say this... I highly recommend Expat Shield + BBC iPlayer.

Basically the defacto bad guy in the tennant years were the daleks. With the way that doctor storyline went you had effectively dismantled them. With a new writer and doctor the angels became baddy number one and crop up in over like a dozen different episodes.

(un)luckily the writers in their final death throes decided to retcon the entire dalek story line alowing for both the death of matt smith's current doctor and the next to be heavily influenced by daleks again.

spend too much time on eBay and you'll find people who make, sell and collect a world of items you might not known existed. some really talented people out there, some very scary, and way too many with too much money. a room full of sneakers you will never wear? yup, they are out there, and a lot of those sneaks were huge money too. in-farking-credible.

I'm not sure if it's possible for Dr Who to jump the shark. As a whole, the series has always been a bit, if not over the top campy.
That's one of the things that can be enduring about it.

That image was actually posted on their Facebook. I also was waiting for Netflix.,, Then again, with so much buzz over an episode with angels in Manhattan, there's only one way it really could have gone.
