I have to be honest. I missed last year’s Doctor Who Christmas Special. It’s the only one I’ve missed of the 2005 series redux. This year I promised myself I’d make sure to catch it. So I made my way home after a my Christmas shift and poured myself an adult beverage into my disappearing Tardis mug (compliments of a dear friend and fellow geekster).
Sitting down I settled in for what I was certain to be another fantastic Doctor Who episode. I was a little disappointed. It’s understandable that The Doctor is upset after losing the Ponds, but the Doctor in this episode was rude, impolite, and rather annoying.
That said the introduction to Oswin was fantastic. I’m looking forward to learning more about her. Her dynamic with The Doctor is good, but isn’t he married? They’re both a little too flirty for me I guess. Though I may be a little a bitter and cynical on this point right now. 🙂
The story lacked something. While the killer snowmen were cool, their enemy status was weak. Overall it wasn’t a bad episode, but not one of my favorites.
