Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One. Therefore, fans in the Americas who are sensitive to spoilers should avoid Tardis on Sundays until they've seen the episode.
Quite unusually for this series, the first two parts of the story had their worldwide debut not in the ongoing American comic series, but in its UK sister series Doctor Who: Tales from the TARDIS, appearing in the first and second issues of its third year, less than a week before their respective American printings. Regardless, the fine print on the issues' contents pages still credit 13DY2 1 and 13DY2 2 as their original printings.
The Thirteenth Doctor is back with her friends – Yaz, Ryan and Graham – in a brand new time-travelling adventure. This time she faces the horrific Weeping Angels – who else can help her out but one of her previous incarnations: the Tenth Doctor himself! Landing in the swinging 60s, the Thirteenth Doctor and fam are stranded in the middle of a territorial battle between the Angels and the creepy Autons, all the while having to avoid her former self and causing the universe to implode! What could go wrong?
Rose Tyler appears on a "Wanted" poster in present day London.
This is the first Titan Comics story to make its debut in the UK before the US, at least as far as parts one and two are concerned.
This comic story is contentious to date in the Thirteenth Doctor's era. The intention, evidently, was that the story was meant to be set during Series 11, noticeable due to details such as the TARDIS interior. However, several TV stories after the comic's release would bring this into question. First, Series 12's TV: Spyfall would illustrate Ryan, Graham, and Yaz still showing confusion about the Doctor's ability to change bodies, implying that they had never been a part of a Multi-Doctor event. More perplexing, Series 13's TV: Once, Upon Time, which premiered after the exit of Ryan and Graham, would feature Yaz meeting the Weeping Angels for, according to her, the first time. As with most continuity issues in the franchise's history, the solution to these contradictions are left to personal interpretation.
While in 1969, the Thirteenth Doctor says the Weeping Angels are "22 years away", which would be 1991. Despite this apparent mistake from the writer, she mentions the correct year of 2007 on the previous page.
The Thirteenth Doctor expresses her appreciation for Janice's ginger hair, saying that she had thought about going ginger herself. Likewise, the Tenth Doctor, upon meeting his future self, expresses his disappointment that she isn't ginger. (TV: The Christmas Invasion, The End of Time)
Ryan questions why the Thirteenth Doctor cannot simply remember what is about to happen to her past self. The Doctor tells him that memory flows very differently when crossing ones own time stream. (TV: The Day of the Doctor)
The Thirteenth Doctor assures Martha that her and the Tenth Doctor do eventually get their TARDIS back using Sally Sparrow's notes, (TV: Blink) and that Martha goes on to live past her travels with the Doctor. (TV: Last of the Time Lords, et al.)
When first encountering a Weeping Angel, the Tenth Doctor tells Ryan, Graham, and Yaz, "whatever you do... don't blink". (TV: Blink)
When the Tenth Doctor steps out of the TARDIS underground, he says he doesn't like the look of it, to which Martha replies ''You're not alone''. The Thirteenth Doctor calls him ''impossibly thick'' for not undertanding the true meaning of the words said by the Face of Boe upon his death, (TV: Gridlock) that being the fact that the Master was still alive through Yana. (TV: Utopia)
For the purposes of this list, a "Weeping Angel story" is one in which one living, authentic Weeping Angel plays a part within the confines of the story, outside of flashbacks to previous stories and cliffhangers that lead into the following story. For this reason, stories such as The Lost, The Halloween Apocalypse and Once, Upon Time are not counted due to the Weeping Angels' appearance being defined by their importance to following stories, while stories such as Survivors of the Flux are absent due to the Weeping Angelss' only contribution being references to past Weeping Angel stories, and stories such as The God Complex are absent due to the Weeping Angels' only contribution being as illusions. Stories like Hell Bent and Revolution of the Daleks are also not included due to the Weeping Angels' appearance being restricted to a single scene of no consequence to the plot of the story.
For the purposes of this list, an "Auton story" is one in which one living, authentic Auton plays a part within the confines of the story, outside of flashbacks to previous stories and cliffhangers that lead into the following story. For this reason, stories such as Love & Monsters are absent due to the Autons' only contribution being references to past Auton stories.
