Saw the last episode, it was okay. Saw the question coming a mile away though.

Obviously UFO, you haven't snuck into Micheal Bay's house and stolen his version of Citizen Kane. Giant radioactive exploding ninjas are the least silliest parts.

...OK, spam aside, who watched the Christmas episode?

I thought it was a little lacklustre to be honest. Just something wasn't quite right.

Piece of contrived, predictable crap with nothing interesting happening.

Why don't they beam out unauthorised personnel? Why do they have armed guards if they don't remove anyone they catch?
Hell, why don't they remove their giant machine(that's so easy to us even a woman from thousands of years in the past can do it!)? Seems like a waste to just have it destroyed by the acid.

And contrived HAPPY ENDINGS for everyone.

It was still better than a Very Flischy Christmas.

Also there's a developing theme with some of these christmas episodes that someone or something becomes energy and flies around space for no real raisin.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Something I've noticed is all of Tennant's Christmas specials were stories set at Christmas, like Die Hard. The two Smith ones have been explicit Christmas stories.

Well, I sort of like the whole idea of "its Doctor Who meets -Christmas Movie-". Despite my general dislike for it I think the Christmas Carol one was a more successful execution of that than this Narnia one. I thought the whole evacuated family Narnia vibe was great until it got to the actual meat of the story and it turned out to be a load of handwavey gibberish about timey wimey energy trees.

I still want my "Murder on the Space Orient Express" which was meant to be on the cards for last year's special until Moffat intelligently lost the script or something.

Still, wonder what it'll be next year. A Miracle on Space 34th Street, Its a Wonderful Life Aboard This Spaceship, How the Space Grinch Stole Space-Christmas, The Great Escape (from space), Muppets from Space, K9 and the Island of Timey Whimey Whiny Toys, The Spaciest Story Ever Told?

You can have those for free BBC.

Oh, I never mentioned I watch this show now.

Yeah, went on a big binge watching the entire 2005 show a few months ago, and now I'm working my way through the 1960s ones.

Haven't had a lot of time to watch them recently, unfortunately. :^[

The relationship stuff felt a little shoehorned and there were several instances of character actions making no gorram sense, but overall very enjoyable.

Wondering how the hell Oswyn is going to end up being the new companion though >_>

Honestly thought this was one of Moffat's better episodes. It wasn't unbearably camp which puts it up in my top episodes.

I like how the new companion isn't from present day Britain, too. Call me crazy!
No way dude, you're trolling me.

I liked that ending. It was stupid, but hopefully we'll be seeing less wank about Super Duper Awesome The Doctor is. Though I think I said the same thing after the Pandorica.
