Carey Mulligan as Sally Sparrow
Episode: 3.10 “Blink”
Written by: Steven Moffat
Directed by: Hettie Macdonald
Aired: 09 June 2007 [UK]


At an abandoned house somewhere in 2007 London, Sally Sparrow discovers a message of warning just for her– signed The Doctor, 1969. Now she must follow the clues left for her, before falling victim to the Weeping Angels, a race of assassins as old as the Universe itself.



Voted Best Story by readers of Doctor Who Magazine in their Season Three Season Survey.

The portfolio that Larry keeps the list of “Easter Eggs” in has a Cunard Lines sticker on the back. Cunard Lines is the successor to White Star lines, which owned the “Titanic” – apparently a reference to the upcoming Christmas Special which will feature the “Titanic”.

Billy Shipton comments that the police box isn’t a real one as, “the phone’s just a dummy, and the windows are the wrong size.” This is a reference to the fact that the TARDIS props over the years have been scaled down versions of the real thing.


Kathy Nightingale: What did you come here for anyway?
Sally Sparrow: I love old things. They make me feel sad.
Kathy Nightingale: What’s good about sad?
Sally Sparrow: It’s happy for deep people.

Old Billy: No, gorgeous girl, you can’t. There’s only tonight. He told me, all those years ago, that we’ll only meet again this one time, on the night I die.
Sally Sparrow: Oh Billy…
Old Billy: It’s kept me going; I’m an old sick man but I’ve had something to look forward to. Life is long, and you are hot! [laughs, pause] Look at my hands. They’re old man’s hands – how did that happen?
Sally Sparrow: I’ll stay. I’m gonna stay with you ok?
Old Billy: Thank you Sally Sparrow. I have til the rain stops.

Larry Nightingale: “The angels have the phonebox,” that’s my favourite, I’ve got that on a T-shirt.

Sally Sparrow: I’m clever, and I’m listening. Now don’t patronise me, ’cause people have died and I’m not happy. Tell me.

Sally Sparrow: Started well, that sentence.
The Doctor: [on video] It got away from me, yeah.
Sally Sparrow: OK that was weird, you’re talking like you can hear me.
The Doctor: [on video] Well I can hear you.
Sally Sparrow: [turns off TV] OK, that’s enough of that!

Kathy Nightingale: Sparrow and Nightingale. It so works!
Sally Sparrow: Yeah, for ITV.

Old Billy: It was raining when we met.
Sally Sparrow: It’s the same rain.

Billy Shipton: Drink?
Sally Sparrow: No!
Billy Shipton: Ever?
Sally Sparrow: Maybe.
Billy Shipton: Phone number?
Sally Sparrow: Fine.

Sally Sparrow: Don’t blink. Remember what he said. Don’t blink.
Larry Nightingale: [not blinking] Who blinks? I’m too scared to blink.
