Don't blink. Again.

Steven Moffat has admitted that he is “probably done” writing any more episodes featuring the Weeping Angels. But he hasn’t ruled out other writers taking them on.

Speaking in an interview with Nerd³, he said: “I’m probably done to be honest on what you can do with the Weeping Angels. But other writers have to have a go. There’s only so many times you can think, ‘Right, it’s a chase scene and statues’. How many times can the lights flicker? What happens if a moth sees them? Is the alien invasion cancelled at that point?”

However, Moffat reveals another Doctor Who writer recently pitched a new story starring the Lonely Assassins: “It’s not going to happen but a very good Doctor Who writer pitched a great idea for the Weeping Angels the other day and I was very excited about it.

“We had a long phone call about it and I went away thinking, ‘That is going to be brilliant!’ And about two days later he admitted he wasn’t going to have time to do it. Hopefully we’ll get to it in the next year.”
