An obvious reference to death itself, which stalks everyone, usually for decades. This is a "memento mori". 75.103.23.206 17:33, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Is this a reference to Dr. Who's Weeping Angels, who also (in a different way) hunt by having their victims live to death? 23.19.87.80 04:01, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
I doubt it. While there is definitely a similarity, it seems like too much of a stretch to have been intentional. 71.225.14.203 00:26, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
While the idea of weeping angels seems pretty true on the surface, they get their 'food' from transporting something through time, but this animal doesn't eat time or anything, it just dramatically speeds up how quickly time passes for it- similar to how sometimes a night's sleep feels only like an hour or sometimes a year. 108.162.219.47 16:01, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
Does anyone know if Randell is a Who fan? 108.162.221.56 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
