There's a series of blipverts out there for the Visa check card which tries to get us to believe that life would be better if we were all robotized automatons who never used cash.

In one of these ads, a cash-payer disrupts the flow at an outdoor gardening site and there, lying in wait, is one of the best villains ever to appear on 'Doctor Who': a Weeping Angel from the episode "Blink".

The one seen in the Visa commercial is just a baby, but even so, it's no less deadly! Luckily, with all of those people about, it's sure to remain quantum-locked for awhile. And as such, probably serves to caution the 'Who' fans NOT to use the Visa check card. After all, if everyone is in lock-step and not feeling free to look around, that Weeping Cherub is going to gorge on all of that potential future energy!

I'm such a geek......
