DOCTOR WHO LAST CHRISTMAS, all about those tangerines
SO this is a welcome return to form for Doctor Who. Last season was a mixed bag from the amazingness of Female Master andListen all the way to the awful icky-ness of anti-abortion moons and the ablest forest adventure. This was definitely perfect. So because I find it easier to work these things out in a bullet point form welcome to 10 point Doctor Who.
1. NICK FROST IS SANTA.
So to get over my initial fan-girling the lovely Nick Frost is Santa. Hells to the yeah.
Also the fact that him and the doctor appear to be fighting = amazing.
2. DANCING IN THE INFIRMARY
Shona was by far my favourite of the dream crab victims. Mainly her dancing got to me. Fantastic dance scene and strangely scary. Probably one of the best ways to introduce a character ever.
3. DREAM CRABS ARE THE WORST
probably the scariest creature since Listen, actually scratch that. The scariest creature in a while. They latch onto your head suck out everything and leave you in a dream state. Yeah not pretty.They can be distracted however by not thinking about them. Hence Clara spilling the beans over Danny's death and slapping the doctor.
4. SANTA HAS SLINKIES, ALL THE BADDIES RUN
So Santa bursts in. With two elves... yeah it's that sort of episode. Anyway he breaks in the building with a ton of slinks, a tangerine and an army of toy robots. Plus Rudolph, with a car lock. It's a cool as hell scene makes you wonder why people like police-boxes so much!
5. ALIEN OFFENSIVENESS
Ok best line time said by the Doctor "you have a horror movie called Alien?, no wonder people keep invading you"
Come on best line ever.
ok other best line ever talking about how the north pole is actually stripey.
6. CLARA GETS ATTACKED
So a dream crab latches on creepy as hell dream sequence. Danny comes back and the Doctor saves her by getting attacked too. SADNESS. They win of course but the sadness is still there.
7. DREAM TEST
ok very useful plot tool ahoy. Reading a book and having each others first words wrong. surprisingly creepy!
8. SWEET PAPA CHRIMBO
another contender for best line ever.
9. OLD CLARA
When we got back and found Clara older who never found anyone but went travelling and was happy. But the doctor didn't know what to do and i'm not crying you are crying and help abort mission. it's too sad. And then it turns out be another dream and he doesn't know the diiference and has to show her and he's so worried she'll be upset and cries.
Santas is real
So there we have it Christmas Special SORTED.
oh yeah and Clara is staying HELLS YES
