(Except I hope it will be brill, obviously).
but the Christmas specials are always massive piles of shit.
The Christmas Invasion was brilliant! The fight outside on the spaceship - ok, silly, but SO GOOD. And the Voyage of the Damned was pretty awesome for its total rip off of the Poseiden Adventure. Plus, it had Kylie.
Really? That was the biggest steaming turd of the lot.
In my opinion, at least. Clearly not in everyone's!
Still can't be worse than that one with Kylie Minogue in. Even with the presence of Katherine Jenkins.
because it's not by Russell T Davies. The ones he writes never make any sense. This is Stephen Moffat scripted, right? They've all been ok except the Kylie one, which was a bit crap. Still, it's Doctor Who, which is a million times better than most things on tv anyway.
Can't anyone write another Christmas story that can be trotted out infinetly at this time of year?
A child has his mince pies stolen by a snowman, who he hunts down and finds is slipping state secrets to the Russians under the guise of amuzing music hall numbers. After stowing away in a shipping crate full of rejected christmas presents that talk, he arrives in Russia to find that an underground drugs cartel is raising and arming street urchins in order to slaughter the ruling party. The boy is captured by the drugs cartel, headed by angry easter bunnies who want revenge on the Soviet leader, Claus, who has centralized redistribution through an ingenious sled system set up by the Red Army, and is now proceeding to turn the world communist through soviet christmas gifts. Summoning and army of reject gifts from the crate the boy brutally tortures the snowman, tkes over the drug cartel and overthrows the iron fist of treacherous commie santa. THE END
In the Muppets version, where would Miss Piggy fit in?
ultimetely falls for the lib dem mp played by kermit. Gonzo is the boy, Fozzy bear Claus, Statler and Waldorf the easter bunnies.
More Who is just brilliant.
Katherine Jenkins is fairly gorgeous, isn't she?
with every passing year
the contract stipulated that she got a boob and nose job. APPARENTLY.
I find myself even more excited by the prospect of a Series 6 trailer to see what the Utah and Neil Gaiman eps are looking like. I love a good trailer.
As for the episode itself, I expect it to be far cleverer than a simple retelling of The Christmas Carol. All the reviews have been super positive anyway, and apparently Matt Smith completely owns it.
Oh and that clip with 'Come Along Pond' that is on the website made me scream with delight.
Anticipation >>>>> the actual event.
Hence why a bit of me actually thinks Chelsea v Man U this weekend might be good.
is like going into Room 12, C block at my school where all the maths geeks would assemble at break to avoid getting chest infections and barbarically ridiculed.
You knew that in that room, 50% would go on to be extremely successful physicists and bankers and 50% would die virgins.
Nice bunch of lads though.
IT'S OK I CAN SAY THIS COS I LIKE DOCTOR WHO OR SOMETHING
