The Snowmen Grading and Discussion Thread

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Christmas Eve 1892 and the falling snow is the stuff of fairy-tales. When the fairy-tale becomes a nightmare and a chilling menace threatens Earth, an unorthodox young governess, Clara, calls on the Doctor for help. But the Doctor is in mourning, reclusive and determined not to engage in the problems of the universe. As old friends return, will the Doctor really abandon humankind or will he fight to save the world – and Christmas – from the icy clutches of this mysterious menace.




The Great Detective prequel:



Vastra Investigates prequel



Trailer:


Unfortunately, I probably won't be able to see this for a couple of days. I fly back to Japan extra early on the morning after Christmas and it's a very long flight. See you on the flip side!

I'm glad you put up both prequels, I hadn't seen the Vastra Investigates one. The cop was more freaked out by the two women in love than the reptile comment or the "Turkish gentleman"

About 9 hours to wait here.

Yep, appalling sledgehammer lecturing there.

Anybody notice in the "Great Detective" one that the music is almost identical to the mood music in Web Of Fear episode 1?

Really looking forward to this for various reasons: It's Doctor Who, the new stuff (Control Room and Theme) and we finally get to see more of Jenna Louis Coleman, who I think is the most attractive of the new who companions right now. I really want to love her character.

All of this (although I think Coleman and Gillan are neck-to-neck on the attractive level), plus Richard E. Grant is finally on Doctor Who properly after two unofficial appearances AND Ian McKellan voicing the snowmen (although it's a pity he's not appearing in person).

I thought that Tardis door opening thing at the start looked cheap.

Starts countdown to the time the new title sequence is on Youtube. Will it make it there before The Snowmen airs in the US? Sets clock - Gentlemen, start your TARDISes!

Re: The Snowmen Grading and Discussion Thread

Much more enjoyable than last years, Christmas episode.

As for the main titles music is better than the last version, still not as good as the 9th-10th era one. And yes the face was back in the credits.

Music great (shades of the 'classic' arrangement), titles better (again a 'nod' to past versions) and the best Tardis interior since it came back. Loved the episode too.

Are they going all Southpark ? 'Oh My God They Killed Clara' every episode...

I enjoyed it and Clara is great and a huge improvement on Amy but I could really do without the mystery surrounding her character. Why does Moffat feel the need to do this again.

I wouldn't go that far - the gorgeous Karen Gillan is an impossible act to follow, but the new girl certainly has something...

Jenna Louise Coleman is also a very attractive lady.

Well it was ok, biut nothing special. The cloud exterior and new interior of the tardis was cool. The main adventure was pretty good until the weak finale.

I hope the "mystery" is solved soon, this is a road Moffat has only just tread with amy - following it again STRAIGHT AWAY isn't something I particularly want to watch.

And hey, the great intelligence! Another old-who return to look forward to, it seems.
