(Telegraph)   With the Red Menace over, The Doctor is sad because he has to star in his own show again. Will Intergalactic Lesbians, a redesigned TARDIS, and his new companion's lovely Dalek Bumps be enough to cheer him up in Doctor Who: "The Snowmen"?   (telegraph.co.uk) divider line 310

"Intergalactic Lesbians" would also be a great name for an indie metal band.

Uh.

They re-designed the TARDIS!??

:/

As long as Rosie O'Donnell isn't involved, intergalactic lesbians are awesome.

Just the inside. It happens. I doubt they'd ever update the outside.

Well, technically, the outside has been updated quite a few times. Notably, the sign on the left door has went from white to blue back to white, and the St. John's Ambulance sticker has faded, disappeared, and reappeared.  And the Matt Smith era brought about a TARDIS regeneration, so it looks all shiny and new now.

But, yeah, the same basic police box shape will probably never go away.

The the episode actually run in the UK yet?

Any other Christmas episodes I should be... looking for? Like Top Gear?

It seems to me they changed the top a lot either when they brought the show back or for Tennant. Maybe it's just the fact that we get a lot of high-angle shots of it now.

It's currently on. I screwed up on the live tv pause thing though so I have to wait for it to finish before I can properly watch it online.

No Top Gear this year. They didn't do a fall series or a Christmas Special this year. I think they come back in another month or two.

People are already biatching about the new title sequence.

As adorkable Clara/Oswin is, I'll miss Amy Pond's legs. Hope Jenna Louise Coleman continues the tradition.

Harry Potter meets the Moffat Sherlock Holmes!

Yeah I turned if off. Can't wait for the Moff to turn the show over to Gatiss. Wake me when that happens.

I'm betting he rides out the big 50th anniversary year, and Smith and Moffatt go out with a bang to end season 8/start out season 9.

Same actress, different character. Karen Gillan was in the Pompeii episode before becoming Amy Pond.

There's a big difference between... the redhead appearing in a minor role as a background character 2 years before becoming the companion and Ace 2.0 appearing as a major guest star the same season she starts with the show.

Oh that's what he's nitpicking? Since everyone's gone out of their way to explain how this situation is different because Moffat intentionally placed Coleman in Asylum after she had been cast as Clara, I think either name is appropriate since the two roles will be connected.

Gatiss is great when he's on, but he's a shiatacular writer when he fails (ie, "The Blind Banker")

Which reminds me of a very old Moffatt script:

MASTER: Behold! Once again I have been augmented by superior Dalek technology, rejuvenating my body and granting me more power over the cosmos.

(He pulls open his jacket.)

DOCTOR: And, I notice, breasts.

MASTER (defensive): They're not breasts, OK? They're Dalek bumps. They can detect ion charged emissions and operate as atheric beam locators at a distance of up to 20,000 light years.

(EMMA snickers.)

MASTER (to Emma): They're also extremely firm.

EMMA: What are you trying to say?

MASTER: Oh, nothing.

The final Star Trek: Deep Space Nine mirror universe episode, from season 7.

Mirror Ezri and Intendant Kira had a thing going on, and instead of pussyfooting around like they did with Jadzia, the producers went full fanservice and had two main cast members make out.

Look at that and say Wars is better than Trek.

NO.
 
2012-12-25 02:38:05 PM
I caught it early and it's AWESOME. Also, I'm really interested in Oswin and what happens with her. My theory is she's a time-splintered Rani who fractured across the timeline to avoid the Time War, but I thought River was the Rani too, so I'm probably wrong. Also, Shrax!

Also, that was the greatest Doctor Who Christmas episode in ages. I've always found them bland or pointless, but this was interesting and really leads into the next season.

Also, Victorian detective lizard gay marriage.

Oh. My. God.

It certainly wasn't the best episode ever, but it was hands down the best Christmas special, and not even in the same league as last year. I loved it so farking much. And I'm genuinely excited for the next season now. If you haven't seen it yet, I envy you for being able to watch it for the first time.

Are you kidding me? Yeah Karen Gillan was always wearing skirts but the girl had chopstick legs. Jenna Louise Coleman on the other hand looks to have some meatier legs. Here's hoping she shows them more often.

Last year's, The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardrobe was far from bland. It was a real tear jerker. But this year's was fantastic. Can't wait to see how this unfolds. Interesting Rani concept, we'll see.
