    Well if there’s one thing bad I’d say about A Christmas Carol I’d say that the script was quite weak at times and is probably up (or down) there with Lets Kill Hitler as one of Moffats weaker scripts. His strongest, and my favourite out of the scripts he’s wrote, is definitely A Good Man Goes To War.

    It can’t be as the trailer showed the outside of the ship and was not a person on the outside. Therfroe, the ship has to be another ship differnet from the the teselecta

    Interesting prequel, so now I know

    (A): The Doctor’s escape from thr Teselecta robot (in the Impossible Astronaught) will not feature in this story. 🙁


    (B). The Doctor is in ALOT of trouble ! How will the whackoy old time-travelling madman get out of this one ? Maybe, he…….

    im getting annoyed with Steven Moffat tring to tease us he is MEAN!!


    December 15th, 2011 - 7:00pm

    I know what you mean, it really annoys me.

    Yep, I definitely agree with you tardisfan101 (dwfan101) (torchwoodfan101). This has to be the best prequel ever just before the “let’s kill Hitler” prequel.

    Admiral Icktheus, there other christmas specials weren’t at all christmassey, but to me they were much more interesting and more fun to watch. My favourite has be “the next doctor”. It had a christmas theme to it, had an old enemy and showed you all the past doctors. I don’t think a christmas special could be better than that.

    17:41 and finally there is a day twelve!

  • the TARDIS

    December 12th, 2011 - 5:28pm

    It’s now 17:27 and there is still no day twelve.

    Has anyone else noticed how LATE the Doctor Who website are putting up the Adventure Calendar. Yesterday, they did not put up day eleven until five o’clock, but that is forgivable – with the news of the recovery of old episodes, they changed what was day eleven, but I’m sat here at 16:44 and there is no day twelve.

    I agree. But although Amy and Rory are great they should either appear properly or not at all. Moffat’s Choice.

    Ok, I’m annoyed with Steven Moffat.
    Amy and Rory have left the TARDIS but yet he is putting them in the episode as a cameo, (same point with Closing Time).
    And yes I know i’m going to sound like some sort of Kazran Sardick but really once a companion leaves then they come back in the finale or a special episode, but not usually a cameo. If they are going to appear don’t have them cameo, or don’t make them appear at all. Moffat’s Choice.

    Well I liked it. It’s a story which is exactly what you should watch at Christmas and it’s more of a homage to A Christmas Carol. It was Doctor Whos own spin on the story and it’s not the first show to recreate it in their way. Plus the others were hardly christmassey were they?


    December 10th, 2011 - 3:22pm

    i didn’t really like it becasue it was an exact copy of the one charles dickens wrote, they even had the same name! come on! same with this year, i hope it is a lot better!

    lol 🙂

    December 9th, 2011 - 6:17pm

    Why does everyone hate A Christmas Carol? 🙁

  • Commander Strax

    December 9th, 2011 - 5:29pm
