For a long while now Steven Moffat has been getting lazy with his plots and this Christmas "special" seals his reputation as the new master of corny Deus Ex Machina. Just when you believed they couldn't wheel out the "love conquers all" ending again, BBC Cardiff proves you can never have enough of a terrible thing.

I miss the old Doctor Who show, where the Doctor used to actually get put in genuinely threatening situations which he couldn't just cockily extract himself from with a flick of the sonic screwdriver or an exhortation to "believe". It's insulting to the intelligence of the viewer, but moreover, it's just plain boring telly.

Nice visuals, a creepy forest and a touching couple of last minutes are about all the good you'll be able to extract from this story unfortunately.

D- Must try harder.

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!!!!?

This was the most horrible thing I have ever seen... No, I really mean that. I have seen a lot of silly things, but this, wasn't just bad. It was offensive and made me question if I should watch doctor who any more. It 'could' have been a good story, and I'm very forgiving of plot holes if the general story is okay... but it wasn't. The resolution of the episode was very unsettling. It left an incredibly bad taste in my mouth, and far from being part of the spirit of Christmas, actually kills it dead. There are large swathes of in-depth reviews that attempt to justify and defend this tripe, but in my opinion if you have to defend it then you are just making excuses for what is an unjustified bad story that no child should watch. It demeans and dehumanises half the population, if not perhaps everyone based on their gender.

Its only one good thing is that christmas episodes are rarely if ever canonised. It can be forgotten about by the series, just not by the viewer.

This is the absolute low point of the series, and it is sad that it had to be the last episode of 2011, allowing this horrible feeling to fester while I wait for the new series.

I ordered this Christmas special because I had been in France when it aired and I always enjoy the Doctor Who specials. Although this Doctor is by far my least favourite of the recent three, he is competent and does the job. It is not his fault that this episode was so dire. Nor is it the fault of the other actors in the episode. They earn it the two stars, rather than the one that it would otherwise have been given. No gripes about the performances, just the storyline itself and its rather sickly presentation.

This is the first Christmas Special to go fairy-tale. A recently widowed mother of two, whose husband apparently dies in a wartime bomber, takes her children to an old house in the country where a revoltingly loud and clown-like "caretaker" (the Doctor) shows them around and presents the children with a giant blue present. When the youngest child, the son, opens the parcel before Christmas day he finds himself on another planet, all snow and fir trees. The daughter and the Doctor soon follow, to find him, and the mother of the children follows a little later. For those still planning to watch this sad affair I won't spoil the plot, but believe me - it is lame.

This time the Christmas trees aren't homicidal maniacs. Nothing and no-one else is hostile either. There are no robotic Father Christmases, no Cybermen, no Daleks, no aliens to fight, no explosive special effects. Not even any running! And everyone lives happily ever after. It's not that I need chaos and special effects to make something interesting but a bit of action would go a long way - and there is precious little of it here.

It tries to be cute and cuddly whilst at the same time raising environmental awareness about acid rain and the destruction of forests.

That man is really starting to annoy me. He's cocky, he thinks he's clever, he thinks he's funny and he simply can't write a good story. I don't get why all of his plots have to have some sloppy story behind them. He think that creating a cliff-hanger that makes no sense keeps people watching. It doesn't. This story is typical Moffat. No proper alien, no action, it's just sloppy. He's wasting great actors doing this. PLease can we just have some RTD action with aliens, no ruddy cliffhangers and a actual plot that fits the story and the actors. I think I've ranted enough now.

Doctor Who. Christmas Evening. Brilliant. Usually. This was such a disappointment. No thrill, No chill. Just syrup poured thickly. Where was the threat? Where was the excitement? Wooden aliens - okay but the story was paper thin. Worse than Pound-shop Christmas wrapping sheets. I enjoyed Downton Abbey more! I've been watching for 45 years and this was like the bad old days of JNT but with better acting and special effects. Next Christmas real aliens and real threat please. (Oh and can we have the yeti, quarks and ice warriors back soon... please?)
