The Radio Times is reporting that -- from a list of twenty possibilities -- the Weeping Angels won the top title as the scariest monster to appear in all of Whodom, and I, for one, would have to agree with them: this is probably the only creature-of-a-sort in the franchise's plethora of possibilites that kinda/sorta creeps out yours truly. Why, do you ask? Do I have some deep-rooted fear of statues? Well, I think that's not out of the realm of reason ... do you?
Statues are an embodiment of people, and maybe -- just maybe -- the maker gets too close to the mark, you see. By recreating someone in stone, is it absolutely unheard of that we open ourselves up to the possibility that somehow a spirit trapped within could re-animate the figure whilst we're not looking? The Weeping Angels tapped into that grand 'what if' scenario, and viewers embraced such creepiness like no other in Who's backlot.
If you're unaware with them, then I strongly encourage you to find Doctor Who's stellar episode "Blink" on whatever streaming platform you can. It's a great episode -- honestly one that can be viewed by even someone not all that familiar with the greater world of Who as the good Doctor appears in only a few minutes of it (the focus is on another character -- one entirely unrelated to the franchise -- for the bulk of the show). It's an incredible tale, and, yes, it's reasonably scary as well.
Don't say that I didn't warn you.
As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
