The Weeping Angels are back
  •  

If you've seen our preview clip of the next series - and you should have by now - you will already have spotted that the Weeping Angels will be making a return this Spring. Previously featured in Blink (Series 3 Episode 10), the Weeping Angels were said to be 'almost as old as the universe itself'. They even sent the Doctor back in time in an attempt to capture the TARDIS - and almost succeeded!

To celebrate the return of the Weeping Angels in the new series, we thought we'd compile a list of our best content featuring the 'Lonely Assassins' all of which is available on the right - including...

Blink: The original story published in the 2006 Doctor Who Annual written by Steven Moffat and illustrated by Martin Geraghty.
Blink: Episode Guide featuring wallpapers, images screensavers and much more.
Weeping Angels Monster File featuring Captain Jack, A Ghost Story for Christmas released as part of our 2009 Adventure Calendar.
Doctor Who's Scariest Moments - Russell T Davies, former Executive Producer introduces a clip of what he describes as 'the scariest moments in new Doctor Who'.
Behind the scenes footage featuring The Weeping Angels, David Tennant, Steven Moffat and Carey Mulligan.

Following her recent BAFTA nomination, Carey who played Sally Sparrow in Blink has also received a 2010 Oscar nomination for Best Actress for her role as Jenny in An Education - congratulations Carey, we wish you the best of luck with those.

Steven Moffat is no to Award nominations either. For Blink he collected the 2008 BAFTA Craft and BAFTA Cymru awards for Best Writer and the episode itself won the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form and was nominated for the Nebula Award for Best Script while also coming first for Best Story in the Doctor Who Magazine 2007 Survey.

Following the success of Blink, it's clear that the Weeping Angels are fantastic adversaries and we can't wait to see what they have in store for the Doctor this Spring.
