The TARDIS having been hijacked by a couple of Weeping Angels and lands in a typical English village in the 1960s. However, this is a village where the population is about to entirely disappear, and where Claire, whom the Doctor and Yaz met in modern day Liverpool, was working with a Professor Jerricho. The village is also full of weeping angels and, both Yaz and Dan, are sent back into the past to a time in the village when the people all disappeared before again because of the weeping angels.

Yaz and Dan were paired up for the episode with the Doctor pairing up with Claire and Jerricho. Yaz and Dan were 66 years away from the Doctor for most of the episode and without a TARDIS to boot.

Of course they had been zapped there by a weeping angel so should they even be able to get back to future? And if they can how in the hell do they manage it.

To top if all of the village seems to be shrinking and appears to be in space itself rather than where it should be and also that that village 66 years in future is also in space.

They find the girl that they had been searching for before they saw the angel and also that the same girl was also in the village in the 1960s but much older.

This allowed Yaz to act like the police officer that she is. Dan was just tagging along really for the most part in this episode it had to be said but then it would have been a bit boring if Yaz had no one to talk to wouldn’t it.

It is a shame that Dan didn’t have a great deal to to in these scenes except being a sounding board for Yaz and for Yaz to take the role of the Doctor in that partnership with Dan in the role of questioner.

Forward 66 years and the Doctor is trapped in a house with Jerricho (an excellent performance by Kevin Macnally) and Claire who we learn had visions of weeping angels, and the Tardis and the Doctor which neatly explained why she knew the Doctor in episode one just before she was zapped by an weeping angel to, god knows where at that point, but we find out in this episode that she was sent back to 1965.

By this point Claire was firmly ensconced in 1960’s life and had fabricated a back story for herself in the decade. Meanwhile there were Weeping Angels everywhere and I do not think that we have ever seen so many of them.

Then Claire saw herself with angels wings, and then she started to actually turn into an angel herself, which would be an horrific thought.

The most interesting thing about the episode was what we found out during the episode: that there was an angel inside Claire, and that angel was an agent of the division, and that all of the angels in the village were division and were after the angel that was inside Claire.

That wasn’t even the half of it really when we got to the end of the episode where it all turned out to be a plan by Division to trap the Doctor and bring her in, in the shape of angel.

Boy was that a fantastic cliffhanger seeing the Doctor turn before our very eyes into a weeping angel and you really have to wonder how the Doctor is going to get herself out of this mess.
