    I loved it. It was exciting and interesting, had an unexpected appearance of a classic villain, it starts a mysterious story arc, and it really has that Christmas feeling, besides making the TARDIS console room good for the first time since 1989. Lots of compliments, no complaints!

    Brilliant episode. It was exciting, fast moving and “Cristmassy” all at the same time. Matt Smith keeps getting better and Jenna-Louise Coleman is going to be a fantastic companion. Another BBC masterpiece. Roll on the resumption of the series

    Wow what an episode, I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to seeing how and why she becomes a level 1 bad ass darlek. As I say that I’m also still morning the loss of pond, her and her story line wore so captivating. I hope you intend to blow my mind with an equally intensive thought provoking story line! I’m 37 and mat was my first doctor (since the old crusty stuff from my childhood, that never stole my imagination) and I love him as the doctor, I’m a Shakespeare actor, and love what he’s done to this English iconic man!

    I think nothing will be as bad as The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe

    They had to change it because they were moving set. And the old tardis would remind the doctor. Of amy and rory leaving him.

    I think it was amazing, I really like the fact that they did not release any news or images of the title so it was a big surprise. Also I thought the effects for the snowmen were great! I think it was the best christmas special, it was really funny as well!

    and another thing that really bugged me, when the doctor first met clara and asked what her name was, when she said it you couldn’t see her face! Terrible! if i were j-lou i would be extremely angry!

    I thought the Christmas special was really quite poor and muddled albeit that Clara may become more interesting as time goes on. I am more interested in good well planned storylines than fresh Tardis designs.

    I am very worried that standards are slipping as the only story I have really enjoyed recently was Oswin as a Dalek unbeknowest to her- very disturbing and sad.

    I love the programme and was 6 when it started and yes I do have an array of Who memorabilia -how sad or perhaps I should say how sane!

    no i mean the grave said 24th, but it was actually christmas day!

    I enjoyed The Snowmen it had a few flaws but at least it was more better than The Doctor The Widow And The Wardrobe.

    My Rate 7/10

    As things stand nobody knows if it will be out on DVD, although it most likely will be.

    Am I missing a subtle reference to something? 23 November was the first air date wasn’t it?

    It was truly magical and the best episode since the Wedding of Riversong.

    Obviously you are a modern day Who Fan.
    You need to appreciate the face that Doctor Who isn’t about explosions. It’s about mystery.

    December 30th, 2012 - 11:54am

    December 30th, 2012 - 11:54am

    on the gravestone they said clara died on the 25th, but jenny stated that it was christmas day!

    To be honest, they should have the other console in, it just doesn’t look right!

    I think that the snowmen could be a bit more scary

    There DEFINITELY has to be a spin off of Vastra and Jenny. I loved Doctor Who’s casual support for equality. No need to make a big deal out of it. I like how it was just a normal relationship and was treated accordingly! Hopefully in the future, intergalactic relationships won’t face the same hardships as same sex couples do!

    Also, quite frankly think that the new companion is stunning!
