Thought it was great. Didn't really understand exactly what happened with regards to the crashing spaceship (saved by the power of Katherine Jenkins lungs?) but really loved it a lot. Clever way to doing a Christmas Carol without doing a Christmas Carol (while, at the same time, doing a Christmas Carol)

And next season looks ace.

(Also: it was amazing in HD)

There's very little to moan about for a change. That's why nobody's saying anything.

I wasn't keen. To be honest, I don't get the whole "abandoning the laws of causality" nonsense that seems to be paramount since Moffat took the reins (you can come back to life by being remembered?).
My son loves it though, and I do seem to be in a minority, so fair enough.
Never ever bloody anything ever

Flying sharks -tres twoothy.

Karen Gillan back in short-skirted copper uniform.

Jenkins, take or leave. Gambon was excellent.

What more could one want?

Almost as good as the Van Gogh episode.

Causality mess ups can be resolved through the sheer fact of wibbly wobbly timey wimey, and lets face it guys, this is family television not a scientific presentation. Not to mention it fucking well beats running up and down corridors as a way of progressing the plot.

Gambon was stellar, Smith was weird and energetic, and Katherine Jenkins was the best piece of eye candy this series has ever seen. The cinematography and art design was astounding, and the direction was some of the most competent work I've seen in Nu Who.

Yup. Can't remember the programme looking nicer than that.

Absolutely brilliant, and the best Christmas special we have had with New Who. Katherine Jenkins managed to outshine Karen Gillan back in short skirt. Very sentimental, but in a good way and it is Christmas after all.

It's either this or go into a room on your own and invent a new screwdriver. Don't make my mistake.

What I love is that Smith's Doctor is is best, coolest big brother the children watching could ever hope for. And when he's talking to the children in the show, like the I know Santa speech 'Keep the faith', he is absolutely talking right to any children watching at home.
