(Written by Steven Moffat, directed by Hettie MacDonald)

THE DOCTOR: Welcome.
BILLY: Where am I?

The Doctor and Martha approach, the Doctor holding a device that clicks and beeps.

THE DOCTOR: 1969. Not bad, as it goes. You’ve got the moon landing to look forward to.
MARTHA: Oh, the moon landing’s brilliant. We went four times. Back when we had transport…
THE DOCTOR: Working on it!
BILLY: How did I get here?
THE DOCTOR: The same way we did. The touch of an angel. Same one, probably, since you ended up in the same year. No no no no no, don’t get up. Time travel without a capsule, nasty. Catch your breath, don’t go swimming for half an hour.
BILLY: I don’t. I can’t.
THE DOCTOR: Fascinating race, the Weeping Angels. The only psychopaths in the universe to kill you nicely. No mess, no fuss, they just zap you into the past and let you live to death. The rest of your life used up and blown away in the blink of an eye. You die in the past, and in the present they consume the energy of all the days you might have had, all your stolen moments. They’re creatures of the abstract. They live off potential energy.
BILLY: What in God’s name are you talking about?
MARTHA: Trust me. Just nod when he stops for breath.
THE DOCTOR: Tracked you down with this. This is my timey-wimey detector. It goes ding when there’s stuff. Also, it can boil an egg at 30 paces, whether you want it to or not, actually, so I’ve learned to stay away from hens. It’s not pretty when they blow.
