The tenth episode of the third series of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It was first broadcast on June 9, 2007, on the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). The episode, written by Stephen Moffat and directed by Hettie MacDonald, is based on a previous short story written by Moffat for the 2006 Doctor Who Annual, entitled "'What I Did on My Christmas Holidays' By Sally Sparrow." In the episode, the Doctor—a time-travelling alien played by David Tennant—and his companion Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman) are trapped in the past and try to communicate with a young woman, Sally Sparrow (Carey Mulligan), to prevent the Weeping Angels from taking control of the TARDIS. Sparrow and her best friend's brother, Larry Nightingale (Finlay Robertson), must unravel a set of cryptic clues sent through time by the marooned Doctor. "Blink" received widespread critical acclaim, and is widely considered to be one of the best episodes of the show. Moffat won the BAFTA Craft and BAFTA Cymru awards for Best Writer, and the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form, while for her single performance in the series, Mulligan won the Constellation Award for Best Female Performance in a 2007 Science Fiction Television Episode. In 2009 the episode was voted the second best Doctor Who story ever by readers of Doctor Who Magazine.
Trivia: This is the first episode to be directed by a woman after a 22-year interval. The previous one was “The Mark of the Rani.”
