Me = massive lifelong Doctor geek, kid = Doctor geek in training. We both loved it. Lots of laugh worthy lines. The Christmas specials aren't meant to be heavy, and this wasn't. Loads of fun.
This was honestly the worst episode of Doctor Who I have ever seen. Peter Capaldi was great... but the plot was awful. It didn't jive at all, and the last person I wanted to see was Nardole. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come.
Many people say that this special is boring but I think it is pretty good but not enough action. Can't wait for season 10!
It wasn't a Christmas episode of Doctor Who as much as a terrible episode of an otherwise terrific show that was released on Christmas... put it back in the oven - it's not done yet.
Great Christmas episode including a great storyline... Ready for the next season!
I always knew that when Peter is given great lines, he'd shine. I love the lightheartedness of this episode, because the past season was so dark, and while the Husbands of River Song was more lighthearted, it was still sad. The script is absolutely wonderful. So excited for season 10!
I laughed;I cried! Brilliant as always! As with most things Doctor Who I cannot described them without exclamation marks! Thank you Steven Moffat and everyone that works to make this show the shining light that it is! I love it! And I love you for it!
A million times yes!! This was one of the best Doctor Who episodes made. It was quick, fun, and clever. This was what had been missing. The whimsy. Capaldi hit the it out of the park here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok I understand this is for kids but really my niece and I turned this off after 20 minutes Its just Bad. Terry Nation was one of the best writers go and have a look at blake 7 and some of the "ACTION" packed Dr Who shows, yes people got killed and monsters killed people and the dr actually did stuff actually did combat.
The Doctors enemies are fighting his release.
I'll add Doctor Who to the things that died in 2016.
