That was good lol
This series getting better and better.
Very smart idea and definately has the scary factor of last time they were used (probably more scary)
Also, there are soo many good lines in this episode. Been lots of good lines this series
Cant wait for next week. Looks soooo good lol
Got to rewatch it because i had my dad pestering me about the Angels and River Song all through the episode. Think i might put subtitles on just incase =P

And this series just gets better!
Clerics - love the idea.
Angels - even scarier than last time.
River - enigmatic and fun.
Amy - clever and funny.
"Hello Sweetie" and the last minute rescue 12,000 years in the making - fantastic.
Can't you just tell Steven Moffat wrote this? Triumphant return to form after VotD.
That is the way This show should be!
I cannot believe how quickly the time has passed. A truely fantastic episode. Fast paced, full of suspense and I loved it.
I officially forgive the producers for last week's show.
Roll on next week.
It was fantastic! Even though it seemed filler-ish for next week, it was still amazing. Another one for The Moff!
Read in the paper that this was actually the first episode they filmed in the current series.
My only complaint with this otherwise excellent episode is the soldiers with weapons and uniforms that don't seem to have changed over the millennia.
Wow!!! Great, eerie, and creepy start to the first part of The Time of Angels!!! Really enjoyed it!!! It's marvellous to have the Weeping Angels again!!! Great performances from the guest cast and especially from Alex Kingston (who is a pleasure to see again as River Song!), Karen, and Matt!!! Superb cliffhanger and I'm very much looking forward to Part 2 next Saturday!!!
'Is River Song your wife?' Anyone who saw Moffat's appearance at Comic Con 2008 will spot the reference. Julie Gardner asked him the same question about River/Doctor's relationship then too. Definitely a nod to that if you ask me.
Brilliant episode, and well worth the rewatch it is currently getting on the iplayer.
I write articles/features/reviews for I'm With Geek.com now. Check out our stuff if you get a minute!

About bloody time too, Dr Who at it's best
So the Church becomes the Army, that's one hell of a twist
Angels in film becoming Angels in real life, f*** that was creepy
Poor Bob the Red Shirt, still we saw it coming
All the statues being Angel's, another good twist.
Alistair, a nod to The Brigadier?
All in all, much better than the last 3 eps
6 billion humans for them to feed on if they get out of the caves (Clearwell Caves in the Forest of Dean btw).
Superb episode! I absolutely loved it - the return of River Song and the angels, River's blue book (spoilers), blue stabilisers on the TARDIS, the way Amy kept alternately closing each eye so she didn't have to blink. Brilliant!
I have to watch it all over again now.
Oh wow!!! That was just brilliant! Best ep yet - can't wait until next week! Love the clerics, love River, love Amy. Amazing stuff.
"It's not supposed to make that noise. You leave the brakes on."
Loved it. Sort of spoils things slightly, but it's still funny that one of the most iconic and recognisable sounds in British culture is down to the fact that the Doctor is a bad driver with poor memory.
Also, after early misgivings, I now officially love the new TARDIS interior and the new theme tune.
When River's trying to tell where the Doctor is in her timestream, or vice versa, what does she say? To my knackered ears it sounds like "Have we done the Bone Meadows?", but since I'm losing my hearing I don't know what it actually was.
"You're letting people call you sir. You never do that."
I wonder if that will play a bigger role as the series rolls on.
"Are you Mr. Grumpy Face today?" made me laugh. Love the fact that Amy doesn't have a problem challenging or making fun of the nine hundred year old Time Lord. Best part is, he agrees with her.
The single biggest problem I can find is the same problem with any Who story penned by Steven Moffat - they are so damn quotable that recounting brilliant lines puts me in danger of transcribing the entire episode. For example, where else would you hear "Verger, how are we doing with those explosives?"
Okay, Angels, my biggest fear of Doctor Who and now we have a whole blinkin' army of the things! Good bye decent sleep!
An absolutely brilliant episode though, can't wait for next week. And what's happening to Amy now she's looked into the Angel's eyes? Now I need a Tardis so I can fast forward t next week!
Speaking of internal TARDIS sounds...can't help but notice that some of the sounds in the new console room are straight from the 1977 - 1989 era TARDIS console room interiors. Very nice touch.
I bloody loved this episode. A brilliant return to form after Victory Of The Daleks, which is a shame since Mark Gatiss wrote some great episodes before last weeks massive fail of an episode.
I didn't realise that 'The Time Of Angels' was going to be a 2 parter. The first part seemed to go by way too quickly and at the cliffhanger at the end, I was actually going 'WTF end?'. I wasn't watching the progress bar on iPlayer so I thought it might have skipped a huge part of the story.
Good thing that we'll get some more indepth explaination of the cracks next week. I was getting annoyed with all the speculation.
Poor Bob. He reminded me so much of Ross from 'The Sontaran Stratagem'.
I wonder how early it is before 'this' River Song meets the 10th Doctor, only to die during the events of 'Forest Of The Dead'. I'd really like to know how River was able to breathe in space before the TARDIS shows up though. Not like her to break the laws of physics.
