I really wish i could watch the christmas special, i finally caved and bought the special for a shocking 4.99 after already purchasing the season 9… shouldn’t this be included… but thats not why i am so irritated this premiered back in December and it is now February and i am still not able to watch it… when will it be available iTunes… It should still be listed as a preorder….so i have no reviews on the episode just a warning for future buyers…
I bought the full collection of the 2015 Christmas Special videos, but only two of the five are able to be downloaded. Unless I'm quite mistaken, it is now well after December 25, 2015, the original air date of the episode. WHY CAN'T I DOWNLOAD THE EPISODE!?
Says "season only" and the it's already purchased!
24 years... I wonder if the next companion will be the Doctor and River kids. That is enough time for them to have a few kids together.
The perfect end to a nearly perfect season of Dr. Who! Full of laughs, surprises, and not a few “feels”, this episode goes down as probably the best Xmas special in the history of the show. Not to be missed.
Best Doctor Who Christmas special yet! The writers continue to outdo themselves.
Not quite as good as "Last Christmas" but still a winner!
What a rip off that they sell this separately from the rest of the season.
No “spoilers”, but oh my goodness… that was SO good! Well, WELL worth the $4.99 I paid for it!
This is best part of Capaldi since he became The Doctor.
It will be Christmas 2016 at this rate!
Well...I bought the season pass but no Christmas Special as yet (Dec. 29). Maybe it'll be on next Christmas. I can't wait. p.s. It's really good; I watched it (for free) on Space tv.
The christmas special comes out on christmas, itunes releases new episodes the day after premiere, so the 26th. Don;t be stupid and preorder a christmas special and expect it before christmas. Don't be stupid and expect the episode the day it airs on television, seriously, the whole lot of you purchase on itunes and it would take an idiot not to understand how releases work by now.
Doctor who is the best thing in existence, if you don't like it you are a very depressing and horrible human being and don't deserve to see the light of day ever again, how could you do this to society, yourself and your barber... You monster :) Just kidding Love ya
The special had the perfect combination of comedy and emotion! River and Capaldi's Doctor are a fantastic duo and everything about this episode knocks it out of the park!
This is a great way to end the story of river song she started out in the end, but ended with a great story line really enjoyed river songs character, and she will always be remembered
The movie is now playing in local theatres, but I still don't have a clue as to when I can expect the actual show I purchased from iTunes. Not a peep from iTunes. Are they all nursing holiday hangovers over there? C'mon guys, time to get back to work.
With a repeat of the 2014 boondoggle ITunes has yet agin screwed the populace of North America on the Dr. Who Christmas special... Whatever you do, do not be persuaded into buying this "season pass" because all you will get are the 30 second trailer and the interview with the producers on "the making of" the Christmas special..... Considering that this show is anticipated by millions and is a traditional favourite of fans of Dr. Who, one must come to the conclusion that the ITunes people behind this are actually a bunch of Daleks bent on destruction of Christmas for all....
It is now Christmas. I purchased this 3 weeks ago. When do we get the actual show? Still no date or indication from iTunes. Took my money for a "Season's Pass" that is still only providing me with a trailer, and a 3 min. "Who is River Song" recap of past episodes. Come on, at least give us a release date. I waited til Christmas for crying out loud.....
I haven’t watched most of the recent series of doctor who, just the first few episodes, and they were pretty terrible. From the christmas special it seems things have gone downhill even further. It’s a real shame, a couple of years ago, the Doctor was one of the most interesting things on TV. Time for a new show runner.
