I thought it was pretty disappointing. The Doctor didn't really do anything but set up the story and explain everything, and the other characters mostly weren't very interesting. The mother had a few good moments, but mostly was drowned out by all the 'blah'.

Overall, it just felt mechanical.

Spoiler:
I thought it was pretty predictable from beginning to end. Though I was confused about why the plants needed a life boat in the first place if they were just going to disperse out into the universe (I thought they were going to go to earth and live in the plants there or something). The fact that the plants could grow a time travelling snow-globe powered by love was also a bit unbelievable.

I guess they had to make a story and they had little time to do it. Besides that, it wasn't really all too good, but I do not mind. They had a season to work on and they are doing other things.

For me, it was another example of Moffat not really getting women as well as he should. Like he's heard the criticism and tried to write something to counter it, but got stuck in affirmative action/ special flower territory when all we really wanted was equality. That said, the first 15 minutes were great, it was cool to see Bill Bailey, and the bit with the mech appealed to my mech-loving side. Overall, So OK it's Average indeed.

This, pretty much. I thought it lacked some suspense that may well have been there if the episode had been longer. Of course, it was (A) Doctor Who and (B) Christmassy, and those two facts alone give a real head-start to making good TV, but if you look beyond that, it was pretty much So Okay It's Average -- especially compared to other Moffat episodes.


I agree, it was definitely "okay"

it's problem was that it took no risks, on the whole, DW Christmas specials have been pretty shit, but they have all been pretty memorable and "BIG" and i think that's what I've come to expect from DW Christmas Specials.

also the fact that once again the head writer is spreading himself too thin, it happened with RTD, who can write good stuff, but by the end of his reign was writing so much that it all became dreck, explosions held together with shoddy dialogue and bombastic music, and now the Moff is writing so much everything is becoming watered down and "Average". his big Black and White idea's are becoming darkish and lightish grey.
Moffat should write 1x 2 parter, and just consult on all the rest of the series as far as I'm concerned

Whether someone is awesome or not is a matter of opinion, you can't really quantify it. you saying "no more awesome than men" is more nonsensical than me stating my opinion of "women are pretty awesome", it's like a couple arguing over who loves who more, there is no right answer because love cannot be quantified.

I finally got around to watching Doctor Who on Netflix. Ran out of shows and decided to follow a friend's recommendation. It didn't do much for me until "Silence in the Library". That episode was...jacked up. There's no way whoever wrote that wasn't a Phillip K. Dick fan. Anyway, I'm now officially a fan.

Yea, but the problem in that episode was basically just a kid who didn't think his daddy loved him.

I did not get that at all from the episode. Yeah he was referred to as not-mom but that was just a joke. It was the love of a parent can overcome a cyberman's reprogramming attempt.

"whoever" is Steven Moffat, the current head writer. he pretty much wrote every good episode up until he became the head writer though.

Interesting, that was not my Humourless Feminist Problem with the episode. I'd didn't mind the special snowflakeness, that is normalish for Dr Who. My HFP was with the combination of "WOMEN ARE MOTHERS/THIS WOMAN IS THE EPITOME OF MOTHERHOOD" with "LOL, WOMEN DRIVERS". Either would have cause much eye rolling, combined they were pretty offensively sexist for me. Not to mention threatening stalker behaviour being presented as romantic which iced the crapcake.

I entirely agree with your first objection, but I have to disagree with the second.

The line 'followed me home' was a bit unfortunate, and I remember feeling a bit uncomfortable when I heard it, but from the rest of the context it was pretty clear what was meant was more along the lines of 'walked me home' rather than 'pursued me home'. Unless my memory betrays me, in the flashback shown he was walking next to her, not behind her.

Nah, he was shown behind her (the miracles of ABC iView) for the first shot (which is a pretty creepy shot). The second shot of that is them talking but with her comment over the top that "he said he would keep following me home till I agreed to marry him, didn't like to make a scene."

While I agree that from the emotional context of the thing it was not unwelcome. But this is a HFP and it is shaped exactly like a thing that is totally not cool. The problem is less "I think Reg was a stalker or rapist" and more that it reinforces the cultural acceptance of things that are shaped like a totally not cool thing.

maybe I could get a Dr. Who impersonator to do a schtick at her rehearsal dinner.

Thoughts on the season finale
Spoiler:
at 1100 years, I was afraid "doctor who" would be the oldest question...but slightly happy that it was too...I am still a bit confused about which point in river's time line we're seeing her when that she didn't know certain things were going to happen. At some point we were told she was moving in the opposite direction from us, period, but that contradicts itself at times. I still feel like the season opener didn't quite get tied up entirely. If River is visiting Amy and Rory, she's clearly not in jail,or it's a different timeline of River...like she got caught before she actually comitted any crime, but after she married the doctor. Most importantly however, she married Robot full of tinier men Doctor, not the real doctor at all...so is she even married to the doctor?

Thoughts on River:

Spoiler:
I prefer the idea of River's timeline not being directly opposite. It leaves less room for maneuvering and fun. It's strict and dull, and a little odd seeing as it's monumentally unlikely to happen unless somebody or something orchestrated it.

Worry not.

Spoiler:
Its already been shown not to be directly opposite.
Yes the first time the doctor meets river is the last time the river meets the doctor.
When river first meets the doctor though can either be as amy's baby, the astronaut child, or melanie.

Plus if it was "exactly opposite" they wouldn't sync up diaries because they wouldn't have any shared memories. All of River's past would be the doctor's future and vice versa.
