What Moff is describing as a prequel has just been posted.

(Alas, don't think it'll work for USAnians, though.)

Nope, it doesn't work. But I'm sure it won't take long for it to get to youtube.

So, thoughts on the Christmas episode? I really rather loved it. Best line of the night I can't quite recall, was Madge's response to the Doctor saying, "I think you want to be alone now." Something like, "I rather think no one wants to be alone. Don't go far, Caretaker."

I had a humany wumany reaction to it.

I think this was the best Christmas episode so far. Yes, even better than last year's one-shark open sleigh. I had several humany-wumany moments watching it. Smile

Also, BILL BAILEY!!! And Alexander Armstrong got to play a RAF pilot once again! Big Grin

It seemed designed to be a tear jerker ep, which was fine, we all need a good cry every once in while. I love how he mispronounced cliche Smile

The sets and effects and costumes were awesome too. Well, except for that awful sweater Amy was wearing! It wasn't so much the design as it was 14 sizes too big for her. Can they only fit the poor girl into clothes too small or too big for her?

I found it rather meh.

It was terribly, *terribly* predictable, and as usual in the Christmas episode, nothing much happened.

I kept thinking I should put the radio on because I was bored, then remembering I was watching something.

Loved the kids room and the Christmas Tree . But I was annoyed by the children and annoyed that it made me cry as I wanted to enjoy it, it being Christmas and all that.

Matt Smith has such an old tortoise face and his expressions are wonderful. But I did feel a bit like Domi.

Are we beginning to expect too much?

Underwhelming. The opening scene was cringeworthy and contrived, just stupid.

Bill Bailey was only in it for a 5 minute scene? What the hell?

We were actually able to watch it this year! For some reason the Christmas special doesn't come out on DVD, but my family gets BBC America which is nice.

I liked it. It was silly and fluffy and feel-good. Everything a good Christmas special should be. I loved house tour, where he's "repaired" all the rooms.

Yes, it was predictable, but the Christmas episode is always a one-off, so it can't mess with the main storylines too much. And those are the ones that Moffat is saving the umph for.
Also, it's *Christmas*. All I want is something fun and heartwarming, and that it was.

I wonder if his moniker 'The Caretaker' will carry on into the next season? If he's lying low pretending to be dead it would make sense.
