Village of the Angels, prefixed in the title sequence with Chapter Four and in other sources with Flux, was the fourth episode of series 13 of Doctor Who. It formed the fourth chapter of the six-part serial Doctor Who: Flux.

This episode's Weeping Angels were a special force called an Extraction Squad with the power to turn other beings into Angels if gathered in a large enough group, as well as being revealed to work for the Division who are revealed to be able to recruit any creature and being into their organisation.


Devon, November 1967. A little girl has gone missing, Professor Eustacius Jericho is conducting psychic experiments, and in the village graveyard, there is one gravestone too many. Why is Medderton known as the Cursed Village, and what do the Weeping Angels want?

Story notes[]

  • Just as The Halloween Apocalypse was set on its broadcast date of 31 October 2021, Village of the Angels was set on 21 November, albeit in 1967.
  • This episode is the second episode of Doctor Who to feature a mid-credits scene, the first being Death in Heaven. The show also previously featured a post-credit scene in Face the Raven.
    • The mid-credit scene was given a special glitching effect as it started and as it ended.
    • The Doctor Who theme also received a special variation during the credits. It returns to normal during the Next Time segment.
  • This was the first episode of Doctor Who: Flux to not feature Karvanista, Swarm or Joseph Williamson. Vinder is also absent for a majority of the episode, only appearing in the mid-credits scene.
  • This episode marks the first time in the show's history that a victim of a Weeping Angel has been killed on-screen, with the characters in question shattering into rock debris.
