    You have to say Steven has made the show more for adults than for kids since Russel left (hence why Doctor Who didnt win a BAFTA this year!)

    Christmas specials from 2005-2009(and 10 if you count end of time part two) were by RTD(end of time being his last who story he wrote) Moffat wrote a Christmas carol and I thought it was the best Christmas ep since the shows return. All the others hardly had Christmas in(apart from next doctor)and well there should have been more. Now we have Christmas specials in where Christmas is a big focus and not the doctor whinging over regeneration.

    Alexander Armstrong is the man in the fighter plane when Madge says England, 1941… and theres a war on. So if Madge is the widow I think she either thinks Reg is dead or he is dead.

    Well I think they should do more mini episodes instead of littles sketches for CIN. Mini episodes are so much better in my opinion.

    It was just a sketch for charity. It wasn’t meant to be taken as a mini episode like 2005 and 2007. It was a little sketch and did its job to try and convince people to donate brilliantly.

    Yes I was a little disappointed too. There have been better CIN eps such as the 2005 and 2007 ones.


    November 19th, 2011 - 9:40pm

    by the way, dissaponted with CIN ep


    November 19th, 2011 - 9:39pm

    1. i think amy and rory should be in there
    2, these last 2 years have been a copy of a christmas carol, now this narnia.
    3. good name.
    4. better be good, last year was dissapointing.

    I liked all of the doctors being in it apart from obivously William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton who had deceased before this aired. However, I think the story could of been a lot better, especially as the rani was invovled, one of of most villainous villians of doctor who history.

    Alexander Armstrong is only making a brief appearance. He is in flashbacks, as he is the deceased husband of Madge, whom we see in the trailer.

    What did you think of the 1993 CIN sketch “dimensions in time” booboo?

    November 19th, 2011 - 7:39pm

    time crash was great

  • dw2005

    November 19th, 2011 - 7:35pm

    There’s been better sketches such as “Time Crash”. In my opinion, that is one of the best doctor who CIN sketches of all time.

  • dw2005

    November 19th, 2011 - 7:33pm

    I agree aswell, I really like short titles like “Night Terrors” and “Closing Time”.

    They could be a distant relative of the weeping angels.

  • dw2005

    November 19th, 2011 - 7:29pm

    My favourite CIN sketsh has to either be the 2005 one or the 2007 one, “Time Crash”.
