Recced because: What if "Blink" wasn't the Doctor's first encounter with the Weeping Angels? Palgrave suggests it was the Fourth Doctor who first ran into them, deep in a family tomb with nothing but his wit, a dog whistle, and a scarf to protect him. The character voices here are spot-on, particularly Four's deadpan humor and Leela's fierceness, and there's very little that makes me happier than an author who can write the characters so that they sound exactly like themselves.
