    Cool moment. However, I feel like the first air date is more important. Otherwise, couldn't we count the first moment of pre-production or the moment the show was approved instead?

    Unfortunately, we don't know exactly when Sydney Newman had the idea, but we do know that a few minutes later Nigel Kneale said "No, that's a terrible idea, only a producer could come up with something like that..."

    There's a photo of Susan Foreman resting her arm on a weeping angel.. I hope she didn't blink.
