In Which I Review the Doctor Who Christmas Special (2014)
See everyone next year!
--"Because you're a fairy tale; I grew out of fairy tales."
--I really need Santa and Shona to be the Doctor's new companions. "I will mark you, Santa!" I laughed for five minutes solid. Also, the North Pole is stripy so you can see it spin. It's actually basic physics.
--While I get the whole "every Christmas is last Christmas" motif running throughout, I'm sorry to say I didn't think it was executed very well. No one knows it's their last Christmas when they have their last Christmas.
--I feel like I would understand the tangerine joke more if I was British.
--The Doctor driving the sleigh was full of joyous wonder.
--"I've known you your whole lives, watched over you from Christmas to Christmas." "But you're not real!" "And yet that never stopped me." Santa or the Doctor. You tell me. ;-)
