#2833 – Don’t Blink!

Hampton Court Palace, August 2019.

Standing completely still, a cherub watches the photographer unmoving, as if that will render him invisible. The problem is that, the photographer knows as soon as he moves, as soon as the statue is out of sight, then the statue is free to move, free to go about its daily business, free to continue its killing spree.

There are some television moments that change lives, others stick in your memory inadvertently defining your life moving forward. I put it to you that, in its own, small way, the tenth episode of the third series of the rebooted Doctor Who will have done exactly that…

“They’re coming. The angels are coming for you. But listen, your life could depend on this. Don’t blink. Don’t even blink. Blink and you’re dead. They are fast. Faster than you can believe. Don’t turn your back, don’t look away, and don’t blink. Good luck.”
