A brilliant series!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Complete Series 3 Box Set [DVD]  (DVD)this is a BRILLIANT series of doctor who, as are all the others, but this one, for me, contains the best ever episode (BLINK), plus a really great finale. David Tennant's video diaries are only one of the fantastic extras on this must-have box set. i'm never bored with this in the house!

Sorry but Blink is really quite full of plot holes !
People think it's great but actually there are SO MANY plot defects...
Like IF The Doctor gets his Tardis back at the end....and we must assume then leaves that time period 1969 they have been trapped in......why not use the Tardis to go to the start of the tale & simply prevent Sally & her friend entering the old house.... ? (then let the angels surround the Tardis in the old house...dematerialise & zap 'em as is done in the Police Car Park in the story)
- A Logical story solution ?
We later learn that Sally has (already) given him the book with ALL the info re what happens as she had recorded it & all information about the weeping angels (which she does at the end...so the Doctor then knows exactly whats going on...but BEFORE it all then happens for The Doctor himself & Martha)...
...and The Doctor thus then on reading Sally's book then KNOWS everything (including that Sally & her guy WILL get the key and send his Tardis back to him in 1969 at the end)...
....so why then at a LATER point in time (for The Doctor & Martha) does he then, despite all his fore knowledge per Sally's book, allow himself to get caught by the angels & sent back to 1969.... ?
Plus how does he do DVD 'Easter Egg' messages for them back in 1969 (Before DVD's are invented)....duly ending by wishing them 'Good Luck' (thus clearly recorded in 1969 BEFORE before he's got his Tardis back)....when for him by then Sally has already met him (hence he knows her name and can write her name on the wall circa 1969) ...& she has already given him the book in the street telling him all ?
(thus The Doctor should already KNOW Sally will send his Tardis back to him anyway...per her book)
If the weeping angels had been in the house for umpteen years...were they not also there when The Doctor wrote the wall messages to Sally (circa 1969) ?....and how did he do that without turning away from them...so why didn't they 'zap him' again...?
how come the 'younger' cop & his 'older' version had never bumped into each other (in the same city) over at least 20 odd years......thus 'zapping' out the space/time continum - and why didn't the younger cop (when back in 1969) ever try to stop people falling victim to the weeping angels ?
...or why didn't Sally's friend tell her grandson to arrive at the flat the day BEFORE she was 'zapped' & warn them both...?
Presumably The Doctor had left the Tardis set to 'de-materialise' AROUND Sally & her pal...but if so - WHY ? - if it's because he knew he'd later Lose the Tardis (per the book Sally had already given him) ...why allow himself to be caught by the weeping angels & 'zapped' in the old house (which per Sally's book which he already had he should have already known would happen...the statue had the Tardis key so he was 'zapped' in or near that old house)..a house The Doctor must have been in been in BEFORE (circa 1969) when he had left the wall messages for Sally...?
...also when (presumably The Police) recovered the Tardis from in or at least near the old house and moved it to the Police Car Park...how come none of the officers then saw any angels or got 'zapped'...?
...and WHY didn't the BBC Wales Script Editor or Russell T. Davies ask Moffat any of these questions...?
What the hell...it's only Dr.Who...eh ?
