    Sounds great! :D

    I knew it. Bet the end makes me cringe. Still, looking forward to the rest!

    It’s Christmas – we can tolerate a corny ending. 
    I mean, Christmas is meant to be corny……….. 

  • Platypus With a Fez

    That’s good enough for me, can’t wait to see it :)

    So…music saving the day in “A Christmas Carol” wasn’t corny? ;)

    Considering I loved the ending last year, I’m fairly certain l’ll like it this year as well.

    Bill Bailey, Arabella Weir and Paul Bazely are basically there to increase the viewing figures and the sole reason for their cameo roles. 

    • Pdurston

      Yeah, I’m not too happy about that. Before reading this, I was expecting them to have alarger role to play, but going by the review, it seems not. I find that a bit odd and dissapointing really, the fact their just reduced to really small cameo roles. I was at least expecting more substance with their roles. What a shame, it would have been a cracker (excuse the pun) to see Bill Bailey in it more.

        Bailey sounded great in that sneak preview on the website. But they should start giving these special guest stars more sustance to their characters rather than it being a stunt to increase figures in Christmas.

    this is a review which is trying to say in a nice way that it’s not very good tbh

    • Anonymous

      How on earth did you get that? This basically says that it’s brilliant but the ending is a bit silly. 

      • http://twitter.com/OliFollow Oli

        all the way through it’s trying to be nice, to me it seemed like a friend who is trying to subtly tell the other friend soemthing bad. that’d sometimes the bad thing about massive dr who fans, they’re sort of biased

          No doubt about it. You’re an idiot.

          • http://twitter.com/OliFollow Oli

            that’s twice now so seriously back off I’m allowed an opinion

          • Rory McKeon

            Calm down, that’s a bit harsh don’t you think?

          • Pdurston

            I agree. I don’t think its right to call Oli an idiot just because he shares a divided opinion from everyone else. I may agree and disagree with him, but I have no right to bluntly call him an idiot.

        • Rory McKeon

          Are you saying that just because you don’t like Steven Moffat?

          • http://twitter.com/OliFollow Oli

            no this time I really did think it came across as they didn’t reckon much to it but now I’ve learnt I need to keep my mouth shut because I’m not allowed an opinion

            You are allowed an opinion, but you *are* wrong in saying that this review is negative. It just isn’t. As I quoted earlier: “It’s a small niggle on an otherwise treat of an episode though. And this is certainly one of the best Christmas presents you could ask for this year.”

    • Pdurston

      You’re really not rooting for this year’s Christmas Special are you? You’re being way too judgemental and harsh on something we haven’t seen yet. Please, cut it some slack and let it deliver the goods before you start breaking it down into pieces.

      How on earth does a review of 4/5 imply that it’s not very good? 

      • Anonymous

        Where does it say 4/5?

        • Pdurston

          Yeah, I was looking around for that too?

            I had a scatterbrain moment and was thinking of a review on a different site. It happens to us Time Lords. Ask the Doctor.

          • Pdurston

            Don’t worry, I can relate to those sort of moments. We Time Lords ain’t exactly the master race on some occasions ;)

      The reviewer also has an opinion and is not being too nice, just objective. There’s no evidence of that – stop trying to force your opinion to reflect that of the person who wrote this.
      Try actually reading this article first before commeting.

    Christmas themed stuff is ALWAYS corny. Of course the ending’s going to be cheesy, it’s Christmas! I’m pretty sure Stephen Moffatt looks at the script and goes, “We have to make this super-cheesy, because it’s the only time of the year I’m allowed. Also it’s for the kids.” And I say that with the utmost affection. Both of Matt Smith’s Christmas specials, he’s had kids for companions. They’ve also both been based on classic stories. Putting those things together is charming enough that you almost EXPECT the cheesy ending. I’m pretty excited.

    A child as the companion, nothing better for a xmas special

  • http://untoldstories-awritersjourney.blogspot.com/ TardisTraveler10

    Question–can the Special be seen without knowledge of Series 6, or would bits seem confusing or raise questions?  I’m asking because some friends may be joining us to see the special on Christmas and they haven’t seen Series 6.
    Thanks!

      best to watch Series 6 first.
