Did the name for the CIA surveillance programme called Weeping Angel come from the BBC Dr Who episode Blink?

Weeping Angel, the codename for a CIA operation which according to Wikileaks can hijack Samsung TVs to spy on viewers, apparently is a reference to the Doctor Who villains who first appeared in the classic 2007 episode Blink. There is no confirmation that the codename is a reference to Doctor Who, but then there is no confirmation that the leaks are genuine either, because the CIA will not comment on leaks.
