A to Z Challenge – Doctor Who cross stitch

A is for “Angels have the phonebox”

“Angels have the phonebox” is from fangirl stitches’ doctor who themed alphabet quotes.

This quote is one of the more well known lines from the series – not including recurring phrases used by specific incarnations of the doctor.

Not only is the phrase popular, but it has been parodied a hundred times over with other fandoms. I’m pretty sure there’s another cross stitch pattern over at fangirl stitches that has the minions from Despicable Me taking possession of the Tardis – another project on the ever-growing list of stitching.

I hear you knockin’ but you can’t come in

The quote comes from the phenomenal episode “Blink” from the third series of the “new” Who.

It is probably the top recommended episode for anyone interested in starting the series.

It’s one of the few episodes that is stand alone and that has no in-depth references to a larger story arc – which makes it perfect for any newbie wanting to see what is so great about Doctor Who.

The Weeping Angels also happen to be one of my favorite Who aliens, second probably to the infamous Daleks. The notion that every statue in the world – in the universe – could be a Weeping Angel waiting for you to turn your eyes away is quite terrifying.

We has the phonebox

According to the Doctor, “no one really knows where they come from” and the Weeping Angels could be as old as the universe itself.

The coolest thing about the Weeping Angels is that even though they are considered the deadliest, most powerful, most malicious beings ever – they never kill their prey.

With a single touch, a Weeping Angel simply sends a person back in time to before he/she was born and feeds off the “potential energy” of the years that he/she would have lived in the present. You’re not directly killed by the Weeping Angels, but you are taken from everything and everyone you have ever known to live out your days out of “your” time – it’s really quite terrifying to even comprehend.
