From Michelangelo's workshop to the catacombs of Rome, the Fifth Doctor must keep his wits about him and his eyes wide open as he confronts the Weeping Angels.
Joel and Gabby Finch break into the Tomb of Pope Julius II looking for Michelangelo's statue of Moses, but instead find a statue of an angel. A priest joins them, and identifies himself as from the Order of the Three Angels. Joel and Gabby look back to see that while they were talking, the Angel has moved. The priest tells them they have been chosen, then blows out the candles one by one. Joel tells Gabby he loves her, and they disappear.
