* Why oh why does ''nobody'' bring up the fact that the moon is ''supposed'' to have one sixth of the Earth's gravity, instead talking about the lack of airtightedness of windows to point out the weirdness of the situation?
** The Judoon installed artificial gravity to make their search easier. It's hard to look intimidating when you are bouncing around like big Rhino shaped balloon.
** Because one is a lot more apparent than the other. If you were stranded on the moon with nothing, but plain clothes, your first concern wouldn't be adjusting to gravity, but desperately gasping for oxygen.
* Okay, so we know that [[CPRCleanPrettyReliable CPR is clean, pretty, and reliable]], but ''how'' does it bring someone back to life after they've had all the blood sucked out of them? The Doctor's not human, but he's gotta need his blood for something!
** I think that was the point of the kiss he gave to Martha. It doesn't quite make sense, but I think it only worked because of that.
** I got the impression that Martha and the Judoon arrived before the Plasmavore could suck ''all'' the Doctor's blood. He probably lost enough that his hearts stopped, but CPR could start them again and he could function.

*** The ability to expand one's lifespan is one of those abilities that was hidden and shrouded in secrecy after it was discovered- and with good reason! If the expanded universe is to be believed, the Time Lords created their own ability to regenerate, but cut themselves off at 12 regenerations (13 lives) on purpose. Even if this is not true and regeneration is a simple biological quirk, the ability to escape death completely is one of those things that ''just doesn't exist in the whoniverse.'' There are plenty of things that are within easy reach for a Time Lord that seem fantastic to us- Time travel and space travel, in particular. But keep in mind that all races in the whoniverse who have any sort of expanded lifespan are almost considered equals to the Time Lords- the Sisterhood of Karn, the Great Vampires, just as examples. Think of it this way: humans have created a vaccine for polio, chicken pox, and measles, thereby saving millions of lives. But now we're concerned about cancer and AIDS. To a physician from the 18th century, it would seem amazing that we can cure such diseases so easily, and it would seem surprising to him that we suffer any health problems at all.

** I understand ''why'' he wanted the technology, what I don't understand is why he needed a human to provide it for him. Something like that is surely child's play to a time lord?

** Actually, this part makes a lot of sense, especially when you consider the Master of the Classic Era. First of all, The Master has always been obsessed with extending his own life; if you think the Doctor goes through a lot of regenerations, stop and consider that the Master was on his ''thirteenth'' body (i.e. last,) when the Doctor was on his ''third''. Over the course of the Classic Era, the Master [[GrandTheftMe possessed two people,]] assassinated the President of Gallifrey in order to steal himself a new set of regenerations, tried to get himself a set of regenerations from the tomb of Rassilon by assisting/sabotaging the Doctor in the Death Zone of Gallifrey, and about a dozen other crazy schemes spanning across galaxies. Some genius fellow on Earth has found a way to extend life? Sure, fund him! Why not? It seems that the Master funded Lazarus for this purpose, and the weaponization of the technology was just a handy secondary use.

*The Master reveals that he bankrolled Professor Lazarus' experiment in order to use the same techniques in reverse on the Doctor. But why did he need to do this? He's a [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien Time Lord]]; they are more than capable of pulling of this feat already, as genetic manipulation and changing your age are second nature to them. It just seems a bit of a weak way to tie the story arc together.

*** We don't see what the Family where doing before the episode starts. Just a WMG but it's possible they had already crossed the line when they started pursuing the Doctor (They are sadists after all, and we see one of their ray-gun blasts, so they must have killed and possessed somebody at that point in order to fire it.) The Doctor knew they would need a severe punishment, but was too afraid of himself and what he'd do to mete it out their and then.

*** To be fair, Nurse Redfern/Joan [[WhatTheHellHero calls him out]] on ''exactly that point'' by the end of the episode.

* At the end of blink when the angels all view each other Sally and Larry are in the way blocking the sight of some of the angels so couldn't that mean they could move? At first I thought they saw a part and maybe as long as one part was being viewed the whole body was quantum locked but in Angels in Manhattan when Amy sees the angel behind rory the angel moves the arm behind rory that Amy cant see.

** I could be wrong, but I think Sally and Larry were sort of crouched down so the Angels could see each other over their heads. Also, didn't Amy blink?

*** It seems unlikely that anyone from modern times would want to give up the internet and everything else - also, I doubt he'd relish being African-American in the 1960s.

** It's not just the descendants of those murdered humans who are wiped out; also wiped out are humanity's peaceful interactions with other alien races, new technology and cultural movements that led to people meeting, falling in love, and starting families- In other words, they haven't just killed Hitler; they've prevented his parents from ever meeting, and killed his wife's grandfather. Now, if the perpetrators were an alien race from a planet so far off that they never had any sort of contact with Earth, they could probably get away with it. But there's at least a good portion of the Toclafane who can trace their ancestry to 10% killed; thus, paradox.
