    Hmmmm, poor christmas episode again. Didnt like last years and this one was no better. Tree people looked nice but the whole story was rushed. Moff is certainly loosing his touch……..

    I know, it’s incredibly bad. I’m not one of these people who are pro RTD, but Steven Moffat just has to go. He’s alright with the odd episode, but as head writer? It falls flat on its face.

    Brilliant episode! Full of warmph and Christmas cheer! as for those complaining there were no real monsters…all the best monsters are ‘victims’ or sympathetic…What about frankenstein or the Wolfman?…Or, in the case of Dr Who, the greatest monster threat of all (in my view) the cybermen? They weren’t evil. So? They scared and were a threat. That was their purpose. I thought they were magnificent and I hope they bring some figures out of them…

    What hell was that ??? I’m just going to re-watch “The eand of Time” and the others Doctor Who specials…Maybe it’s time for Moffat to go before he ruines the show…

    A return to form that continues the upswing from the second half of series 6 – thanks Steven!

    This years xmas special was good to watch but it was disappointing. The best scene out of the whole episdoe was the ending.

    Moffat wrote some of my favourite episodes since the series came back, The Empty Child, The Doctor Dances, The Girl in the Fireplace, Silence in the Library, Forest of the Dead. I can’t believe how bad it’s become with him in charge.

    The more I think about it the worse it gets. The Tardis just happened to be parked in the village near where the Doctor landed from orbit ? He didn’t have the ability to call it himself (we saw that from the trailer) so how did it get there ? Doesn’t anyone vet these scripts ?

    I agree. Last years was more christmassey. This years tried to be but added to a predictably, emotional, sci fi story and it just died completely.

    I know, it’s saddening to see the show turn to this.

    last year one was better

    It was disappointing. Recently some of Moffats episodes have been predictable and I do like Moffat for sure but it was easily predictable. I could see the ending coming a mile off. Matt Smiths acting was brilliant and he handled the comedic scenes well and some of the other acting was decent but the story did seem a bit of a mess, no it was quite a big mess to be honest. I am going to rewatch it later but I wasn’t too keen on it. 6/10

    I got really excited for this episode. There was no threat. No real ‘blockbuster’ feeling. I’d rather have watched The Next Doctor.

    What a dreadful episode! The space ship crash and the beginning was never explained and the direction of the “I know” scenes was ridiculous! There was also a stupid resolution of the father surviving by flying through the time vortex! HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?!?!?! Also, why are the Ponds in it again!!!! Why can’t they just be written out! 3/10, because there was a reference to Androzani. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    absolute RUBBISH and boring.

    Rubbish episode, Moffat cannot produce, and the series just gets worse.

    Sorry, wish I could say otherwise.

    Add to that the impact from orbit that created a massive, deep crater but left the doctor in one piece. I know you have to take the program with a pinch of salt but this was a mess.

    trash…garbage…..worst episode since love and monsters….moffat has been a total let down….time to go

    I was really looking forward to it but it was average at best. In fact some of it was just plain daft – trees creating a space rocket, time-travelling escape pod that was relying on a human host to come along in the nick of time ?

    Good to see the Ponds at the end though.

    they haven’t started filming it yet so there is nothing to show

    It was single-handedly the worst episode of Dr Who ever. Steven Moffat needs to go. 1: How did the Doctor breathe in space at the beggining. 2: Only time machines can travel in the time vortex, so why the hell was there just a random entry into it in the middle of space. If so, fair enough that the spherical ship flew into it, but that plane? WHAT THE HELL. That would not be able to withstand the conditions of the time vortex. MOFFAT OUT.

    WOW! The Ending was a great one. One to remember I would say. Overall a very sad Christmas special but also a very joyful one.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!

    Sorry I meant that we didn’t get a trailer for next series.

    I thought that was a really good Christmas special. It had everything: action, adventure, comedy and some sad parts. I really liked the bit at the end with Amy but I’m annoyed we get a trailer for series 7.

    I thought it was a lot better than last years story bring on series 7
