How does statue become a weeping angel? Edit

I am assuming the French didnt create the weeping angel that is the Statue of Liberty so how did it become an angel

In "The Angels Take Manhattan", River says that the angels have "taken over" every statue in New York, so it could be that they can possess the statues, convert them somehow, or perhaps they could even be projecting their consciousness into the statues in order to animate them.

Contradiction? Edit

Is there any explanation for the fact that, in The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone, the angels have no problem moving when they’re able to see each other? I thought Blink firmly established that they can’t. —Frungi 05:51, May 13, 2013 (UTC)

Are there eyes actually open in Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone? I remember seeing very limited use of the open eyes and I certainly don't remember enough open eyes to lock the angels. If you angel has their eyes open and is looking at other angels, those angels are quantum-locked. But the angel that's looking can close it's eyes unless someone looking at it is preventing that.
Also, there are very obvious issues with the angels. Sally Sparrow has photographs of the angels and looks at them in the eye which is a clear problem in regards to the later precept "that which holds the image of an angel becomes an angel". Anoted 10:07, May 13, 2013 (UTC)

Christ the Redeemer: Harmless representation of a religious icon or the God of the Lonely Assassins? Edit

2.3 Expansion Edit

More a question than a contribution: how does it come that the weeping angels don't quantum lock each other in time of the angels? They are 'walking' right behind one another and do not even bother to put their hands over their faces like a proper weeping angel.

SCP-173's heir? Edit

Wait, Isn't the weeping angel a homage to SCP-173? The preceding unsigned comment was added by 99.101.151.15 (talk).

What really happened? Edit

Hi, So I was wondering, if the Doctor had erased the Angels from existence (TV: The Time of Angels / Flesh and Stone), then why did Amy and Rory get sent back in time in The Angels Take Manhattan. Even after The Big Bang, it has been stated that previous events DID happen! Gs97 15:46, June 7, 2014 (UTC)

Behind the scenes moving? Edit

This article's 'Behind the scenes' section claims that the Weeping Angels can slightly move even when being seen. When in Doctor Who did this happen, because I don't remember any example of this happening anywhere. TroopDude 11:20, August 15, 2014 (UTC)

not a sentence Edit

This isn't a complete sentence, someone who cares should fix it: When Weeping Angels grew weaker from starvation, with the stone wearing away over years.The preceding unsigned comment was added by 173.226.248.50 (talk • contribs) .

Thanks for the heads up. It took more effort to post that than it would to remove the word "when".--Skittles the hog - talk 14:15, November 17, 2014 (UTC)

You can't kill a stoneEdit

This comment is always made when talking about how powerful the Weeping Angels are but it makes no sense. You can easily "kill" or at the very least destroy a stone. Just use a sledgehammer to bash it's face in or to knock its arms off and you're sorted.--Xx-connor-xX 04:27, November 2, 2016 (UTC)

CIA hacking toll Edit

Is it worth mentioning that the CIAs have used the name weeping angel for on of there recent hacking tollsThe preceding unsigned comment was added by 95.147.32.223 (talk).

That is actually a good question. Yes, I think that would be worthy of inclusion in the BTS section; I didn't even think to add that. Is anyone knowledgeable about this topic up to writing it out?

For me the real question is: did they base it on DW Weeping Angels or on the statues, which are called "weeping angels" outside of DW. I agree, the coincidence is suspicious. Moreover, the TV's behaviour seems to mimic that of a DW Weeping Angel. But I suspect, CIA is not going to issue a press-release with the name of the episode that inspired them.

Hahaha, I suppose not. Thank you for joining us; always a pleasure. I did not consider that they might have been referencing real world weeping angels, but I suspect not. I mean, some nerd at the CIA made a nerd reference, most likely. Sort of reminds me of that scene with Amy. "WikiLeaks alleges the CIA developed the tool with MI5, Britain's equivalent of the FBI, which probably explains where the name came from."
× SOTO (//) 22:51, March 11, 2017 (UTC)
if it helps this is the BBC news article on it which is illustrated with a weeping angle and says the name is intentional and even mentions that there's another one named after the sontarans used on Skype http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-39219637The preceding unsigned comment was added by 95.147.32.223 (talk).
"The name could have been chosen 'because you think it is not alive but it is, you think it isn't doing anything but it is' says Alan Woodward". Ha! This. Anyway, it does seem to most likely be a Doctor Who reference, on part of the CIA/MI5.

I have a proposal on how to write it. I think claiming that CIA/MI5 based on Weeping Angels is not entirely justified: most articles hedge their bets, if you read them carefully. However, the provided article from BBC, I think, provides a perfect cover. It is completely justified to claim that BBC recognised the name as originating from Doctor Who.

I've found two other pages that talk about sontaran hacking tool https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2017/03/according-to-vault-7-the-cia-are-nerds-who-can-rui.html https://wikileaks.org/ciav7p1/cms/page_524426.html 95.147.32.223talk to me 23:10, March 11, 2017 (UTC)
That's a good idea, Amorkuz. Either only mention the BBC News article (I think this is the best option), or have various sources for news articles claiming this to be a Doctor Who reference. Either way, this deserves its own short section in the BTS of Weeping Angel. Is anyone up to writing it?
