What did You Think of Twice Upon a Time?

Now that the 12th Doctors final episode has been aired what did you think? Was it everything you had hoped for or not what you expected.

The magical final chapter of the Twelfth Doctor’s (Peter Capaldi) journey sees the Time Lord team up with his former self, the first ever Doctor (David Bradley – Harry Potter, Game of Thrones) and a returning Bill Potts (Pearl Mackie), for one last adventure.

Two Doctors stranded in an Arctic snowscape, refusing to face regeneration. Enchanted glass people, stealing their victims from frozen time. And a World War One captain destined to die on the battlefield, but taken from the trenches to play his part in the Doctor’s story.

An uplifting new tale about the power of hope in humanity’s darkest hours, Twice Upon A Time marks the end of an era. But as the Doctor must face his past to decide his future, his journey is only just beginning…

    We need a writer that can actually write decent realistic characters like RTD, I can’t think of a piece of dialogue in this episode that sounded like something a normal person would say. Everything has to be so poetic and metaphorical and ‘quote’ worthy for some reason under moffat it’s tiresome

      Well, apparently Chibnall is good at doing character stuff, so your wish might well have been granted.

    • Doctor Stu

      December 26th, 2017 - 5:12pm

      I can’t wait, that’s why I loved RTD because his characters were so real, with families and lives that were not forgotten outside of whizzing around space

      I had a suspicion that the Captain was related to the Brigadier. The change to a female doctor is needed, as the show needs a radical reboot both to liven it up and change the dynamics of the programme. A programme which has run for over 50 years, (although only been on screen for 37 years and has had 13 male actors in the lead role) needs to move withe times in order to stay fresh and appeal not just to Whovians like myself but cater also for the mainstream audience. If people do not like the idea of Change as that is what the whole regeneration idea is about and they dont agree with the choice of lead actor either male or female then they should decide if they want to watch it or not. ! I think Jodie Whittaker will be tremendous in the role of the Doctor. and a change of not only lead actor, and producer/ lead writer will move the programme in a more radical and different direction. Michelle Gomez was a hit as Missy the female version of the Master. Bring it on Jodie and Chibnall 🙂

      I know it’s sad Doctor who has to change its gender to stay with the times, hey do think we should also changes James Bond to stay with the times.

    • Pats86

      December 27th, 2017 - 9:18am

      Funny you should say that T.A because Teresa May has actually spoken about the Doctor being female and she went on to say that Bond should be female now also?
      This proves the point that many of the changes we see in popular culture is definitely are being forced, it is becoming the expected outcome.
      What about a radical new way of thinking like creating all new female characters? A new female Time Lord, Bond like spy? Too much to ask I suppose, it would mean thinking about it.

    My third favourite Christmas episode after The Christmas invasion and Voyage of the damned.

    The first Doctor had us all in stitches when he slowly opened the TARDIS doors and exclaimed he’d give Pearl a smacked bottom if she continued with language like that.
    I loved the chemistry between the two doctors. And nice to see new Earth back! Would have been even better to have the a member of the cat-kind on the screen but that’s just me being a RTD era fan.
    And I really thought it was Davros in that tower the way the Doctor was saying “you” rather than “it”.
    A brilliant send off for Capaldi. Jodie had a very similar start to Matt Smith’s Doctor. TARDIS blowing up and falling out the TARDIS before the end credits rolled. obviously an excuse to get a brand new interior.

    What did everyone think of the first doctor?

    • booboo

      December 25th, 2017 - 8:34pm

      personally i am not a fan of other Actors playing original actors (simply because i dont think a new generation should grow up thinking David Bradley is the 1st Doctor – he isn’t)

      having said that he did a fine job and the episode was the better for it, overall enjoyed it but a lot of missed opportunities in this one.

    • Simon W

      December 25th, 2017 - 8:46pm

      I loved them using original surviving clip of the first ever regen that was good to see.

    • THE ERGON

      December 25th, 2017 - 9:13pm

      I felt he slightly outshone capaldi and it felt wrong to want more of him especially given this was capaldis final story and that monologueat the end felt overstretched even more so than matt smiths. No he never will be William Hartnell but as a replacement i couldn,t imagine a finer actor than david Bradley.

    • THE ERGON

      December 25th, 2017 - 9:16pm

      Also any generation that grows up with the history would Know Hartnell is the original in the same way they knew Hurndall wasn,t.

    • the master

      December 25th, 2017 - 9:32pm

      I think most of this generation only concentrate on the last 12 years and many of those on a casual basis , its only the core fan base that acknowledges its complete history

    • Whovastron

      December 25th, 2017 - 9:39pm

      The sexism was so disrespectful to Hartnell, his character was nothing as ridiculous as that. I’m not saying there wasn’t sexism back then, but my god this was ridiculous

    • THE ERGON

      December 25th, 2017 - 9:54pm

      But they know’ whos who’ surely as far as actors who have played what even on a casual basis. I would have thought the younger audience and new fans want to know more about its history.

    • booboo

      December 25th, 2017 - 10:17pm

      core fans yes, but the vast majority of viewers and not core fans, they are just viewers.

      at the moment the younger audience are not that interested, that’s pretty obvious from the total absence of Doctor Who merchandise in the high street and toy shops these days.

    • T.A

      December 25th, 2017 - 10:01pm

      I never remembered the first doctor being old fashioned, when I watched his episodes.

    • Galactic yo yo

      December 25th, 2017 - 10:10pm

      I’m glad they had a little reference to the fact he was being played by a different actor.

    • The Outcast

      December 26th, 2017 - 1:38am

      I though the 1st Doctor’s protrayal was alright, bar the sexist gags. The first sexist gag was explainable for me and I would have been fine with that being the only one…

      But then we got the women are made of glass one. Dear god, that was an utter disgrace. The 1st Doctor would never have said that in a million years.

      I’m going to explain this away as the 1st Doctor saying sexist stuff to annoy 12, I think that is the only way I can possibly ignore this utter stupidity.

    • The Outcast

      December 26th, 2017 - 1:44am

    • THE ERGON

      December 26th, 2017 - 12:32pm

      Maybe not the !st doctor but dear william Hartnell might have made a few gaffes.

    • Tyler Prescott

      December 26th, 2017 - 4:39pm

      I think his acting works well, but his voice is conveyed so differently to Hartnell’s he doesn’t sound much like him.

    A brilliant episode, best Christmas special ever. Not one for the casual viewer but as a fan for 40 years i thoroughly enjoyed it & reminded me why i love this program so much. Particularly happy not to have too much Christmas “cheesy” bits in it, i thought the acting was superb. As with any new doctor i am excited & nervous at the same time, which is what makes its special. I am sorry for those that looked forward to it but didn’t enjoy, i suppose writing a Christmas special is very difficult knowing you need festive bits in it as well as wanting the casual fan to enjoy but contain enough for the seasoned fan. Sometimes i feel having a regeneration scene in the special is asking rather a lot of the writers. In terms of opinions all should be respected, good or bad, these opinions show how passionate we are & hopefully some of the posters on here will in time write for the show & ensure a long future.

  • Doctor Stu

    December 25th, 2017 - 7:56pm

    The last ten minutes were good I suppose if you took away Nardole, I liked the monster but that plot just stopped very suddenly, Bill wasn’t acting very well considering her standard in some of the episodes in series 10. Good twist with Rusty but I called it as soon as it showed the Dalek mutants running around. It was hardly a spectacular epsiode and the regeneration speech went on far too long and then made me cringe a bit when he started going on about his name and children so didn’t really evoke any emotion from me. But it was nice to hear some familiar music again but it was by no means for me the best Christmas episode it would be fairly near the bottom for me. capaldi deserved something with a little more substance for his final episode I feel moffatt used the extended run time to over stretch his existing scenes rather than actually advance the plot as it all seemed so slow. But at last moffatt has gone so Kaye Chris can bring the sparkle back for me

    • T.A

      December 25th, 2017 - 7:58pm

      I think it would have been better if 12 regenerated at the end of the Doctor falls.

    • Doctor Stu

      December 25th, 2017 - 8:02pm

      I’ve still not got a clue why they had a mondasian cybermen episode finale for series 10 and did nothing with it for the Christmas special. I’d have had the ship from The Doctor falls bring the cybermen over to the South Pole and made this Christmas special into a cybermen episode with the first doctor instead of what we actually got.

    • Tim M

      December 25th, 2017 - 8:03pm

      I think that was the original plan. But as Chibnall didn’t want his first story to be the Christmas Special, Moffat remained and Capaldi agreed to do one more story out of contract. If Capaldi had said no, then they wouldn’t have been a Christmas Special this year.

    • T.A

      December 25th, 2017 - 8:05pm

      The mondasian cybermen are peters favourite DW villain, and people have been wanting the mondasian cybermen back so Moffat a good thing and brought them back, even if he did not use them to their full potential.

    • Tim M

      December 25th, 2017 - 8:13pm

      I’m surprised they didn’t bring back Carole Ann Ford as Susan. As that was also on Capaldi’s wish list along with the Mondasian Cybermen. Missed opportunity there. With the First Doctor in ‘Twice Upon A Time’ , it would have been an ideal moment for Carole to have made a cameo appearance as an older Susan.

    • booboo

      December 25th, 2017 - 8:17pm

      Would have been the ideal time, if not they could actually have bought back anyone from the distant past as a “real surprise”

      I also thought we were going to get a “city on the edge of forever” moment with the Brigadiers father

  • Silence will still fall

    December 25th, 2017 - 7:55pm

    I do find it quite humorous that once the regeneration episode is over people say they’re never watching again, then jump on the bandwagon when the actor nails the part as every one has.

    • Doctor Stu

      December 25th, 2017 - 7:59pm

      I watched the end of time yesterday, (one of my favorite Christmas specials) and when he regenerated into 11 I remembered the first time I watched it and thinking how I immediately disliked Matt Smith, with Tens clothes on he didn’t look like the doctor and his stupid geromino catchphrase made me cringe but then he had his time as the doctor and I grew to love him, and then the same with Capaldi (10 is still the best by miles for me). So it’s not fair at all to not give Jodie a chance to shine

    • Silence will still fall

      December 25th, 2017 - 8:11pm

      Its one of my favorites too. I actually love Matt’s entrance and the Geronimo catchphrase too. Possibly my favorite entrance of a new doctor.
      I’m sure she’ll be amazing and like every other doctor people will see it

  • Tim M

    December 25th, 2017 - 7:50pm

    Really enjoyed that. The Christmas Special is normally fairly light weight at the best of times, but I felt this one, whilst still light on plot, contained the right balance of mystery, humour and drama. Top marks to David Bradley for successfully re-creating the First Doctor. One hopes his performance will encourage newer fans to check out some of the First Doctor classic stories. Capaldi was superb too. However, whilst I would give this story 10/10, I do feel it was made purely for fans, and rather alienated many general viewers. Doctor Who under Chris Chibnall must dispense with much nostalgia and continuity, and go forwards. It’s clearly been a series going into itself and own mythology in recent years. It’s reminiscent of the mid 1980’s, and the show didn’t last long after that.

    Ow come on ppl I wish you lot that have already given up on the show and saying its dead to you. I wish you’d give the new 13th Doctor a chance she might make you change your mind. I know a true fan will watch the show even if there was still a man in charge. Ppl have excepted there being a gay character in the show why can’t you except there being a woman in the lead. I know I’m a fan and I shell be watching even if they change the lead to a LGBT character in the lead. Dr Who is a show I love and I will always watch it.

And I do respect your opinions. Its the ppl that says the show is dead to them that gets me. True fans know and love the show no matter what happens. As the Doctor once said Time and Tide wait for no man. I hope u will forgive for saying that.

      Simon W, I was absolutely gutted that Jodie had been cast as the Doctor, I was ready to quit there and then but as a life long fan I will give Jodie a go at the very least. I know I will struggle and may end up not being able to continue watching.
      I fully understand why some will give up right now and respect their decision. 50 years of established lore wiped out by Moffat, Chibnall and the BBC and alienating many long time fans, splitting the fan base too. The whole thing absolutely stinks and they should be ashamed of themselves.
      Teresa May this week has said she would like to see James Bond be female? The world has gone mad!

  • Silence will still fall

    December 25th, 2017 - 7:45pm

    Episode was really good. For me the biggest tear jearker scenes were when we found out the captain was the brigadier’s grandfather which was a stunning twist and actually the regeneration of the first doctor into troughton.
    The regeneration I thought was nicely done and the ring falling off her finger was good and remimicint of matt taking his bow tie off. The POV camera I absolutely loved and the ideas that we’re seeing things through the first female doctors eyes was powerful. My only niggle of the regeneration was the tardis is crashing for the 3rd straight time following regeneration. Really hope we see a lot of the POV camera angle in the new series.
    Noticed no funny moments or tomfoolery following the change which is an interesting change, maybe a more serious Doctor although trust the doctor to press the button that’d cause chaos lol…
    Tardis dematerialized while on fire so the survival of the fall Look’s obvious that it’ll rematerialize around her before she hits the ground.
    Imagine however if she did die and was brought back to life temporarily to force another regeneration. My god that would be a twist but 100% unlikely.

      Quite agree, i try not to read the comments as it upsets me greatly. I’ve watched this show for 42 years now and i still love it. Jody will be great. It is very disturbing to hear some fans talk as they do. It actually makes me ashamed to be a who fan. I won’t look at any other comments relating to my post as I’ve been deeply upset by what some have said before about other posts. As this is in favour of jody and critical of the vocal haters i don’t expect this comment to stay on. In an aside to boo boo i do wish you would remove some of the very negative comments that certain posters seem to be able to post with impunity.

    • The Outcast

I admit that I felt strongly against a woman Doctor, but then I changed my opinion, it’s not about political correctness, I just feel its not justified to to judge someone without at least giving the said person a fair chance.

    I’m very glad that Moffat is now no longer head writer as he just didn’t seem to put his all into it. Now these are My own opinions and I’d like you to at least respect them, even if you don’t agree.

      Whovian if you look at Chris Chibnalls work you would be just as worried like some of the long time fans are. The bbc are pandering to the fans who are about political correctness, and Chris has not said much about the next season in detail, this is why a lot of fans are leaving or don’t have much faith in the next year of doctor who.

    • whovian

      December 25th, 2017 - 11:09pm

      From the episodes that Chris has written, I enjoyed most of them. and regarding the Doctor, it’s like The Moment said, same man, different face, but obviously it’s the same character, just a different gender. And the change from Capaldi to Whittaker was flawless to me.

    • T.A

      December 26th, 2017 - 10:24pm

      I meant in other shows, and chibnalls episodes are normally in the bottom of most people’s season episode ranking and is it just me that it’s werid he is now shown runner, even though his last episode was in 2012.

    its the end of an era in more ways than one. Love the idea that this new Doctor is an imposter. I’m done, I won’t be watching anymore, it’s got too siilly under Moffat and looks like it’ll just be the same under Chibnall with the desperate casting attempts to make it relevant.

      Thank you pats86 and dannythenerd and booboo for letting me having my own opinion. I have to say I am a life long fan, earliest memory is of the tom Baker years. Watched throughout the up and downs, ( twin dilemma, one example) but just recently its hasn’t been good, so I feel its not for me anymore, but am still a fan of what has been before.

    Didn’t expect much and in true Moffat style didn’t get much either. Capaldi deserves so much credit for making this just about watchable, called the Lethbridge-Stewart connection after less than a minute, David Bradley did a decent job mind, and the odd amusing joke helped the pain of this poor send off for the great Capaldi.
    Felt rather sad to see Jodie at the end, it just doesn’t feel right at all.
    Might be a good idea to let the Doctor fall to her death now and draw a line under thus once great show.
    Will watch again tomorrow and see how it all feels once it has really sunk in.

      Interesting that she only pressed one button and the TARDIS tried to kick her out, and succeed lol

      I honestly don’t know know how she going to survive that fall, regeneration energy can help you buy only to and extent.

      She’s still within 15 hours of her regeneration, so she’s basically indestructible.

      Indestructible like the TARDIS is indestructible? Post-Regeneration energy might help, but I doubt it would save 13 if she ends up hitting the ground from such a high speed. Hell, I wonder if the Doctor would even be able to Regeneration from that high a fall. Well, 13 better hope her past self stored a Jet-pack in one of his coat’s pockets.

    I need to see the regeneration scene again & zoom in on the computer console in the TARDIS it had something written on it but i don’t know if it’s important or not. Also they probably did all that damage to Tardis at the end so they could redesign it .

    • THE ERGON

      December 25th, 2017 - 6:45pm

      a total reboot of everything including opening credits. Here we go again.

    • whovian

      December 25th, 2017 - 6:49pm

      Dan23 the writing on the screen after she changed reads “Systems crisis. Multiple Operations Failures” just before she gets thrown to the floor. Thought I’d save you the trouble.

    • T.A

      December 25th, 2017 - 6:51pm

      Before, I watched this episode I thought the Tardis would get destroyed in a better way, like David’s.

    • whovian

      December 25th, 2017 - 6:53pm

      T.A, in fairness, a part of the console was ripped apart, and the Cloister Bell was chiming.

    • Dan23

      December 25th, 2017 - 6:54pm

      Thay put the end scene on YouTube also.

    • Pats86

      December 25th, 2017 - 6:59pm

      The Cloister bell is ringing because it knows an alternate imposter Doctor is here!

    • T.A

      December 25th, 2017 - 7:45pm

      We saw the tardis getting destroyed for like three seconds, at least with David’s you saw the damage.

  • THE ERGON

    December 25th, 2017 - 6:36pm

    Did she say heartburn? if so odd choice of word. The final half hour was padded. had some amusing moments playing with the Un PC doctor but i was expecting something a little more dramatic and heroic. Good fun though.

    • whovian

      December 25th, 2017 - 6:37pm

      The Doctor said oh brilliant after she had regenerated

    • THE ERGON

      December 25th, 2017 - 6:43pm

      I must have misheard. I thought it might have been another unnecessary catchphrase. and No coming soon trailer. Oh well.

  • Whovastron

    December 25th, 2017 - 6:34pm

    That was just awful. Terrible witting, directions, effects. Every other line was just awful fan service. Interesting cliffhanger though

    • T.A

      December 25th, 2017 - 6:36pm

      I agree the story at points was boring, but I enjoyed about 45% percent of it.

    • THE ERGON

      December 25th, 2017 - 9:20pm

      And that interesting cliffhanger might just be enough for you to come back.

    • T.A

      December 26th, 2017 - 2:50pm

      In my opinion they need to stop destroying the tardis because of the Doctor, it worked with Tennant to Matt, because that was the first time it happened, but know it’s just silly.

    Really great story i thought, nice send off

  • T.A

    December 25th, 2017 - 6:32pm

    Good story, bit boring at some points and the first dr who was at some points not done good, like then ending bit with all the compaions, not my favourite regeneration scene but all around a good regeneration story.

      Why do my comments about 1 and his out of character _____ lines get deleted? Is the 6 letter word beginning with s a trigger word for the auto delete?

      I feel the same, but not for the same reason. I have no issue whatsoever with Jodie Whittaker, or a female Doctor, but that scene just felt rushed and cheap. The FX weren’t great, and the whole crashing thing seemed to be shoehorned in, just because most previous Doctors have crashed their TARDISes after regenerating.

  • Weeping Angel

    December 25th, 2017 - 6:30pm

    It was quite good – I enjoyed it! Shame Jodie only said two words at the end though but great story!

    • Dan23

      At the Beginning we saw them releasing the doctor from the Cybermen ship.

      Oh thanks. I must have missed it!

    • THE ERGON

      December 25th, 2017 - 6:48pm

      I did think we might have got the sequence with them banging on the doors again. they spared us of that.

    • Tyler Prescott

      December 26th, 2017 - 6:59pm

      I would have also liked to have seen the First Doctor fall over or something. It seemed a little odd for him to be standing up, then when the camera returns, he is lying down, with out any sort of collapse.

  • whovian

    December 25th, 2017 - 6:29pm

      December 25th, 2017 - 6:36pm

      And although the Doctor said nearly nothing in her new form, I can’t wait to see what happens next. Welcome to Doctor Who, Jodie Whittaker. One of the BEST stories in a while. Great to see Clara as a cameo, giving back the Doctor’s memories of her. And the Christmas Truce had me in tears, including the fact that the Captain was Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart’s relative.

      Moffat FINALLY gave us a good story, just as he steps down. I am still a Whovian.

    • whovian

      December 25th, 2017 - 6:42pm

      And I am happy to say that I was proved wrong about Jodie being a red herring. I connected with her as the Doctor instantly and was shouting at the TV “hold on Doctor” as she was being sucked from the TARDIS.

    • Pats86

      December 25th, 2017 - 7:01pm

      One of the best stories in a while? What have you been watching whovian?
