Meh. I was not overly impressed.
Oh no, they have over-hyped a show that has none.
This Christmas special under-achieved so much that I have no doubt there will be a HUGE backlash from the Whovian camps. Moffatt may have just written the eulogy of the Doctor in this one episode. He, and I mean Moffat, might need to regenerate himself and his script-writers before too long
Well, there were a few bits that stood out in this intergalatic fanfare … [SEARCHING CYBERBANKS] … Oh, I remember now, these two bits of dialogue. A few well-written lines.
“It all just disappears, doesn’t it? Everything you are, gone in a moment. Like breath on mirror… Any moment now, he’s a comin’!”
“You. You are the Doctor.”
“Yep… and I always will be … But times change, and so must I.”
We all change. When you think about it – We are all different people, all through our lives, and that’s OK, that’s good, you gotta keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be!
Let’s hope the latest incarnation can put new life into the series. The last three actors made the Doctor a worldwide franchise, idol and star. The new guy needs to outshine all three combined. Meh. I doubt it will happen. But I am prepared to watch and find out.
