Corrected entry: In this episode, Mr. Copper was played by Clive Swift. To those who are familiar with British television, among other works, he played the long-suffering husband Richard Bucket (pronounced Bouquet) to his over-bearing wife Hyacinth in the sit-com Keeping Up Appearances.Movie Nut
Corrected entry: In the episode 'Blink,' the stone angels are able to move when no-one's looking at them. But there are some shots (such as when Sally leaves Wester Drumlin's) where no-one (except the audience) is facing the angels. Why aren't they moving? Even just a little movement, like breathing. They're still just stone statues.
Corrected entry: When The Doctor, Martha, Solomon, and Frank first enter the sewers, Frank mentions, "You could hide a lorry down here." Lorry is a British term, not an American one. Because this story is set in the United States, he should say, "You could hide a truck down here."LizzieWD
Corrected entry: When Headmaster Rocastle is outside in front of the school, he is talking directly to Jeremy Banes. He tells him that "people have died". However, the Headmaster addresses him as "Mr. Smith". Mr. Smith is the name the Doctor assumed when he became human.
Corrected entry: At the very start, two people are in a car, but it's being torn apart by Macra. The woman says that they'd lied to the computer and said they had three people instead of two. Yet when the Doctor is in a car with the man at the bottom layer of cars, the man says that if they lied and said that they had two people instead of three, the wheel would automatically lock.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Tallulah, Frank, and Martha are looking through the plans on the top of the Empire State Building, Tallulah goes to look out at the view. From the top of the Empire State Building, she can see the city and from her POV the Empire State Building is well lit up center frame. It shows the same shot several times throughout the episode.
Corrected entry: The fundemental feature of the statue monsters is that they cannot move if anyone/anything is looking at them. At the end they are tricked into looking at each other (by the Tardis dematerialising) and so are trapped forever. But they are in a basement with a light on, when the light goes off they will escape. In fact they earlier made the light blink so they could move and attack the good guys.
Doctor: So, that's the trap. Or the test or the final judgment, I don't know. But if I kill you, I kill her. Except that implies, in this big grand scheme of Gods and Devils, that she's just a victim. But I've seen a lot of this universe. I've seen fake gods and bad gods and demi-gods and would-be gods - out of all that - out of that whole pantheon - if I believe in one thing... Just one thing... I believe in her.
