I totally called the choice of scene. Clearly, you are a hack and I could do your job twice as well.

(Not really.)


First, and for the record, my grammar broke down here precisely where the episode demanded it to. It's difficult to describe things that are difficult to describe, and even now, I'm not sure how to do so while still writing well.

Second, I believe you did call it, and deserve all the credit for that ... which is, sadly, these plaudits. (By which I mean those words, because that's the best I've got. Sorry?)


(Also, if you'd like to do my job twice as well, by all means, please do so. At this point, I wouldn't mind the assistance.)

As you doubtless know, Blink, the espisode that established the Weeping Angels, written by Moffat the year before, when he was still just a non-staff writer, won the Hugo, and:

is based on a previous short story written by Moffat for the 2006 Doctor Who Annual, "'What I Did on My Christmas Holidays' By Sally Sparrow'.
. Also:
For "Blink", Steven Moffat won the BAFTA Craft and BAFTA Cymru awards for Best Writer,[2][3] and the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form.
But you know, and of course it wouldn't be remotely relevant to your class; just mentioning because I'm here, and now I'm gone in a blink.
