None of the monsters featured so far in Doctor who have absolutely anything on the terrifying creature in this episode! The unseen assailant is depicted only through … Granted I haven’t seen Season 5 and beyond yet, but up to that point the Angels don’t even kill you. Midnight also, pretty much, takes place in just one small space, and you can understand the terror behind being trapped on a ship with an unknown monster, but in Blink, the terror of the Angels is everywhere once you find out about them, you are constantly thinking that they'll run into them wherever they go (which they do) and this, in my opinion, makes The Angels terrifying. The Midnight creature was not only hostile, it made the other people on the transport hostile too. My god. Well, let’s see… (Yes, I am answering my own question like a filthy cretin, you can sue me, I am a Whovian and my feed is dead). However, I think it adds to the anxiety of the episode.

In Midnight we knew (and still don't) absolutely nothing about The Midnight Entity, however we know far more about the Angels due to them being in Time of The Angels/Flesh and Stone and The Angels Take Manhattan, but if we're going just off of the episodes themselves, Blink creates the Angels in such a well-done way, we don't know what they are or really what their motivations are to start with, it preys on a fear that a lot of people have, fear of statues, and the Doctor and companion-lite theme is excellent. It doesn't need to do the copying, repeating, slowly taking over bit. The more the characters run in Blink the more they know, dont blink, they are fast, they move when you dont see them, etc. Personally, I have to give the edge to Blink.
