Hmm, I loved Moffats' last one and will give him the benefit of the doubt, much better than the continual RTD Dr as Jesus / Saviour motif.

Also like the continued theme of placing the Doctor on his own or with new people.

Re: Doctor Who Christmas Special 2011 Title is....

I'm calling a young C.S Lewis stumbling into the TARDIS at an Edwardian mansion and heading off on an adventure on a snowy planet with the Doctor. I've actually been clamouring for that for AGES.

*edit* just read the link and can't help feeling he should've gone the whole hog like I suggested. We've had Dickens & Christie in Who before and it's worked, why not throw Clive (or Jack as he liked to be known), into the mix. It would totally work.

Re: Doctor Who Christmas Special 2011 Title is....

So, it looks like the BBC is denying that a title has been announced, though the rest of that article is pretty much what's beiing reported everywhere.

Christmas Special 2010, I guess Moffat said it would be like "A Christmas Carol", which turned out to be the title, so, it looks like when he said this year's would be like The Lion, The Witch and Wardrobe, the article took liberties

The only thing I heard him say was that it would be the most Christrmassy one yet... which had me nerdgasming over the idea of a close encounter with The Nativity.

Re: Doctor Who Christmas Special 2011 Title is....

OK, so now, it's actually been officially announced on Children in Need

The rumored title was close, but, not quite right.

The actual title is: The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe

1 minute trailer at the link

Re: Doctor Who Christmas Special 2011 Title is....

So, what did people think?

I found the main story went smoothly and had all the typical Who'esque feels; but truly, it was the last scene for me that made it worth watching.

Not sure why, but over the last season I started to really like the Pond(s)/Doctor relationship, and that final scene cemented that much more for me.

The other characters in the special? Didn't think much about them except the comical portrayal of the 'workers'.

Yeah, I think it was only a fair ep. Last year's Christmas Special was better.

Re: Doctor Who Christmas Special 2011 Title is....

I would agree that the episode was OK...defintely not the best...though it was very emotional.

I also watched the "best of Christmas" Dr. Who episodes that aired on BBCAmerica afterwards and noticed there was at least 1 scene from the "Voyage of the Damned" episode that I don't recall seeing before.
It showed the Dr., Astrid and a few other passengers (Richard Bucket included) transporting to an empty London. They run into Wilfred (Donna's grandad) in his reindeer antleers selling newspapers. This scene must have been cut from the US airings..I know I would have remembered it.
