Of course it could be a double bluff!

Anyone else surprised how quickly they rigged a village wide surviellance system?
These are folks from a country that can get a flight of Spitfires converted and into space in under 20 minutes. But the writers could take better care to deal with some basics about time to do things. Given the area they covered, perhaps, but where did all the equipment come from, unless the drill site had a whack of surveillance stuff?

Hiding in the church? Sure, but the TARDIS could have been set further away so one didn't ask why the few folks weren't shuttled to safety in there. I know the Doctor is reluctant to bring strangers inside but in this instance it just seems silly that the TARDIS wasn't used.
We are quicksilver, a fleeting shadow, a distant sound... our home has no boundaries beyond which we cannot pass. We live in music, in a flash of color... we live on the wind and in the sparkle of a star! Endora, Bewitched
