Though, did people sent to the past in Blink get time locked when eaten by an angel?
Given that both the Doctor and Martha got zapped back to the past, I'm guessing not. It isn't about being time locked as such, it's about whether your story suddenly becomes a fixed point from the Doctor's point of view.

And Winnie, even I'll laugh at that
Thing is there are so many ways around that particular paradox that you don't even have to think particularly hard to get round it. Which is what's so very frustrating about the last couple of series. Huge gaps in logic and lack of following through in the story, or just plain not sticking to the rules you already established. So "This is a fixed point" becomes "I cheated" then becomes "no really, this is a fixed point, no, Really really" without a convincing reason. Other than "these actors want to leave" of course.
One more anal-probing gyro-pyro levitating ecoplasm alien anti-matter story and I'm going to take out my gun and shoot somebody.
