Matt Smith is/was a great Doctor Who. Inventive, funny, serious and above all totally right for the role.

I feel sorry for him therefore to have been caught up in this puerile slice of stodge. Its AWFUL TV as well as bad Doctor Who.

The Doctor is not a kid's magician, he's a time travelling genius and yet here he is reduced to his lowest ebb.

Nice transfer and sound but oh dear, what was the writer thinking!!!!?

If you love Xmas, the Narnia plot, you will love this. The Doctor without the companions, but new chums and a promise he is repaying, will bring a tear at the end !

I only bought this once the price came down as the BBC told us it would not be included in the box set. Well it was and if believed the BBC and then brought Matt Smiths last outing as the Doctor, then you have for no explicable reason you now own this story 3 times over.

It is a fair idea, a lonely Doctor hearing the cry of a child, (Night Terros anyone?) but the story feels that Steven Moffat is just dipping into his bag of what was to become old tricks. A set up that stops us getting to the dilemma of the story, and cuts down on the drama, and his old favourite using timey wimey to wrap things up. Here it is just about okay, but this trick has now become his hallmark of writing himself out of the corners he puts himself into. At the time I enjoyed this bit of nonsense as a stand alone, viewed as part of the on-going ark for the 11th Doctor it just echoes the previous Christmas story, with lets go back in time to sort thing out. True this was by way of an incredible coincident in the time vortex. But with one leap he wrapped everything up neatly endings, because everything has become too complicated. It was great fun in Blink as everything feel into place, The Big Bang where you had to keep on your toes as we raced to the end of the story. Here it is the start of Moffatt's get out of jail free card. Is this ending really written by the bloke who gave Silence in the Library, Asylum of the Daleks, and Flesh and Stone. Unfortunately for me this story marks the start of lazy writing and no one is as clever as me attitude that so many fans have come to feel let down by the programme they kept alive. Nice idea but only fore shadows the reason why twitter accounts are closed down. (Sometimes you must admitte that if you out you name on something you have to except the responsibility).

Revamped Narnia story almost, mixing that with a very Christmassy theme during WW 2, some nice comedic scenes, wasn't too impressed with the forest spirits stuff, but still good viewing!!! ;0)

I thought this was one of the better Dr Who Christmas specials. I will certainly keep it in my "watch it again" section of my dvd collection. Enjoy.
