Plot Holes: An image of an Angel becomes an Angel, yes? So why, at the end of Blink, does Sally Sparrow have lots of photographs of Angels in her dossier that she delivers to the Doctor later?

The Angels in "Blink" are scavengers with little energy left. The Angel that took over Bob's body is shown to have far more power and the rest received a massive boost of energy from the Byzantium's radiation.

Or maybe, that's how the Doctor and Martha got into the mess that starts off 'Blink' in the first place. It's a stable time loop; if Sally had never given that folder to the Doctor, then the folder would never have been made. Although why the angels don't come alive in between the photos being taken and the photos being given to the Doctor is unexplained. Maybe because the original forms are stone - so the video in 'Time of Angels' can come alive because the angel (of which it is an image) isn't 'dormant' any more?

Maybe they were revived by the TARDIS energy when the Doctor got the photos.

So. The Doctor's jacket. Perhaps the angel which ripped it off him was the first to get sucked into the rift? Also, did anyone else drool when they watched the last 5 minutes of this episode? No? Just me?

Possible, I guess. The crack was right there, so that makes sense. The last fives minutes had me laughing far too much than I should be...but it was kind of hot, not going to lie.

The jacket? its a different, darker coloured jacket. And the shirt looks to have a slightly different pattern.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

How well does it match the trope?
